# from the SIDC (RWC-Belgium): "ALL QUIET" ALERT #
The SIDC - RWC Belgium expects quiet Space Weather conditions for
the next 48 hours or until further notice.
This implies that:

  • the solar X-ray output is expected to remain below C-class level,
  • the K_p index is expected to remain below 5,
  • the high-energy proton fluxes are expected to remain below the
    event threshold.

If this is the start of another Maunder or Dalton minimum, we could be in for chilly times ahead. We'll know for sure when Cycle 24 starts in six months.

Is that so?

Global dimming! Global dimming!

Get up there and count 'em for yourself if you doubt me!

Thank God. A sun without sunspots is like a girlfriend without a sense of humor.

I think this sort of thing precludes global cooling trends, nothing to be alarmed about, if you live in lower latitudes.

wow that was sorta cool!

The SIDC - RWC Belgium expects solar or geomagnetic activity to
increase. This may end quiet Space Weather conditions.

Yay! Now the earth can get warmer again :D

And now they're all gone again. :(

Changes in the Sun’s Surface to Bring Next Climate Change
January 2, 2008

Today, the Space and Science Research Center, (SSRC) in Orlando, Florida announces that it has confirmed the recent web announcement of NASA solar physicists that there are substantial changes occurring in the sun’s surface. The SSRC has further researched these changes and has concluded they will bring about the next climate change to one of a long lasting cold era.

Today, Director of the SSRC, John Casey has reaffirmed earlier research he led that independently discovered the sun’s changes are the result of a family of cycles that bring about climate shifts from cold climate to warm and back again.

“We today confirm the recent announcement by NASA that there are historic and important changes taking place on the sun’s surface. This will have only one outcome - a new climate change is coming that will bring an extended period of deep cold to the planet. This is not however a unique event for the planet although it is critically important news to this and the next generations. It is but the normal sequence of alternating climate changes that has been going on for thousands of years. Further according to our research, this series of solar cycles are so predictable that they can be used to roughly forecast the next series of climate changes many decades in advance. I have verified the accuracy of these cycles’ behavior over the last 1,100 years relative to temperatures on Earth, to well over 90%.”

As to what these changes are Casey says, “The sun’s surface flows have slowed dramatically as NASA has indicated. This process of surface movement, what NASA calls the “conveyor belt” essentially sweeps up old sunspots and deposits new ones. NASA’s studies have found that when the surface movement slows down, sunspot counts drop significantly. All records of sunspot counts and other proxies of solar activity going back 6,000 years clearly validates our own findings that when we have sunspot counts lower then 50 it means only one thing - an intense cold climate, globally. NASA says the solar cycle 25, the one after the next that starts this spring will be at 50 or lower. The general opinion of the SSRC scientists is that it could begin even sooner within 3 years with the next solar cycle 24. What we are saying today is that my own research and that of the other scientists at the SSRC verifies that NASA is right about one thing – a solar cycle of 50 or lower is headed our way. With this next solar minimum predicted by NASA, what I call a “solar hibernation,” the SSRC forecasts a much colder Earth just as it has transpired before for thousands of years. If NASA is the more accurate on the schedule, then we may see even warmer temperatures before the bottom falls out. If the SSRC and other scientists around the world are correct then we have only a few years to prepare before 20-30 years of lasting and possibly dangerous cold arrive.”

"Space and Science Research Center"??

  • Name doesn't exist in Wikipedia.
  • Only 10 hits in Google.

I'm getting a bad feeling...

Wikipedia is largely worthless unless you're looking up Pokemon stats.

Is this is a thread for trolls?

I believe this should be read up on before launching into any speculation about solar observed cooling.

Also, I did some research and its an unverified source from moscow.
