Sunspot activity on the surface of the Sun follows a well-known 11-year cycle, with activity rising and falling that creates the so-called solar maximum and then solar minimum. The Sun entered a solar minimum two years ago, and one expert is warning that the sun also will enter a period of “hibernation” this year, in what as known as a Grand Solar Minimum. Professor Valentina Zharkova says agriculture could become less productive, affecting food harvests, especially in the middle latitudes. She says the Sun’s hibernation period could last for 33 years, which will lead to wetter and colder summers. A Grand Solar Maximum occurs roughly every 400 years, and the last one, known as the Maunder Minimum, lasted from 1650 to 1710, a period of greater cold on Earth. -GEG

Sunspot activity on the surface of the Sun follows a well-known but little understood 11 year cycle. Activity rises and falls creating the so-called solar maximum and then solar minimum. During a solar maximum, the Sun is more powerful and is littered with sunspots.

Conversely when the Sun enters a solar minimum – which it did about two years ago – energy from our host star begins to lessen.

However, one expert has warned that the Sun will enter a period of “hibernation” this year, in what as known as a Grand Solar Minimum (GSM).

Prof Valentina Zharkova, from the department of mathematics, physics and electrical engineering at Northumbria University, warned this could cause global temperatures to drop by one degrees Celsius.

While that sounds like an insignificant drop, it could have major ramifications for the planet, including a slow down in agricultural production.

The expert added the Sun’s hibernation period could last for three decades, which will lead to wetter and colder summers.

Prof Zharkova told The Sun: “The Sun is approaching a hibernation period.

“Less sunspots will be formed on the solar surface and thus less energy and radiation will be emitted towards the planets and the Earth.”

“The reduction in temperature will result in cold weathers on Earth, wet and cold summers, cold and wet winters.”

“We will possibly get big frosts as is happening now in Canada where they see [temperatures] of -50C.

Jeez! Where have I heard this one before? Deja vous? Oh yeah, we’ve come full circle on the Climate fear porn – here’s some from 1978 narrated by the late Leonard Nemoy aka Spock: youtube.com/watch?v=1kGB5MMIAVA

When scientists say that “they don’t understand certain abrupt meteorological events that pop up now and then” perhaps the answer is found here: “When he thunders, the waters in the heavens roar; he makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth. He sends lightning with the rain and brings out the wind from his storehouses.” (Jeremiah 51:16) “The Lord will cause people to hear his majestic voice and will make them see his arm coming down with raging anger and consuming fire, with cloudburst, thunderstorm and hail.” (Isaiah 30:30) “See, the Lord has one who is powerful and strong.… Read more »
