Blank Sun

The sun is now virtually blank during the weakest solar cycle in more than a century

The sun is almost completely blank. The main driver of all weather and climate, the entity which occupies 99.86% of all of the mass in our solar system, the great ball of fire in the sky has gone quiet again during what is likely to be the weakest sunspot cycle in more than a century. The sun’s X-ray output has flatlined in recent days and NOAA forecasters estimate a scant 1% chance of strong flares in the next 24 hours. Not since cycle 14 peaked in February 1906 has there been a solar cycle with fewer sunspots. We are currently more than six years into Solar Cycle 24 and the current nearly blank sun may signal the end of the solar maximum phase. Solar cycle 24 began after an unusually deep solar minimum that lasted from 2007 to 2009 which included more spotless days on the sun compared to any minimum in almost a century.

    1. And, they refuse to try to understand it when one takes the time to explain it to them. Historically when the sun went quiet, the earth cooled. Now the econuts are claiming that due to human CO2 emissions it will not cool this time. Bets anyone? It has not warmed in the last 18 years and 4 months, while we experienced lower than normal sunspot cycle. But, they refuse to accept the suns influence on the the climate, insisting it is human CO2 emission that control the climate. Really, they do think that humans can control the climate.

  1. ”Predicting” weather / climate was the oldest profession – prostitution was the second oldest. (from prostitution you get less rip-off, and at least you get something for your money) Regarding CO2, there are two versions #1: CO2 makes dimming defect – was used in the 70’s; that: because of CO2 dimming effect we’ll get ice age by year 2000. #2: the contemporary misleading effect is: because CO2 prevents heat to be ”radiated” to out in space, we’ll get global warming…?!(that version was used few times for the last 150years that was THE GRANDMOTHER OF ALL LIES!

  2. because is NO global warming – soon the Warmist would have to justify for all the billions squandered – fortunately for them; they can say that: -”the phony global warming didn’t happen, because of Russ’s phony global cooling… the best Christmas present to the Warmist Organized Crime (WOC)…
