The Maunder Minimum

In case you didn't catch it as it was buried news, but they are predicting that the coming year(s)? will see the lowest number of sunspots in at least 100 years.   Secondly, follow the money as they say and Owl Hore has made a neat little nest egg of over $100M bucks since leaving office in 2000.  Not bad for selling BULLSHIT!  Enough said, the following are some quotes from respected sources and scientists at NASA, Climate Science International and Accuweather

The Maunder Minimum

"Early records of sunspots indicate that the Sun went through a period of inactivity in the late 17th century. Very few sunspots were seen on the Sun from about 1645 to 1715. Although the observations were not as extensive as in later years, the Sun was in fact well observed during this time and this lack of sunspots is well documented. This period of solar inactivity also corresponds to a climatic period called the "Little Ice Age" when rivers that are normally ice-free froze and snow fields remained year-round at lower altitudes. There is evidence that the Sun has had similar periods of inactivity in the more distant past. The connection between solar activity and terrestrial climate is an area of on-going research."

"While sunspots affect numerous things one them is our world weather...fewer sunspots = cooler weather."

"How does this relate to global warming? As previously expounded on by Brett and I, a lack of sunspots means a quiet sun, which means a slight reduction in the amount of energy from the sun that reaches the earth, which should mean a slight cooling trend. Again, research the Maunder Minimum and its role in the "Little Ice Age".
