    Sunspots seem to be markers for solar activity, when the suns burning hot, we get lots o A f sunspots. When it's running cold, we get few or none. The past year or so the number of sunspots has been unusually low, with August being very unusual in that there were no sunspots at all. It was the first time that's happened in almost 100 years. A normal month would have about 100 sunspots.

    Previous periods of reduced solar activity have coincided with rapid periods of global cooling:

    If global warming theory is correct, perhaps it's time to mandate increased output of carbon to prevent an iceage.

    One thing is right we are due for an ice age.. nothing we have to worry about for many many generations. But I know that sunspots can raise the stupid to the surface... Hi madanthonywayne should i quake in fear, or are you pointing out a dubious anomaly that im not going to confirm. Time for Sciforum to get back to science..

    Hey mods why are so many Pseudoscience nutters allowed to post such crap.

    If this sunspot minimum is actually cooling things from what they would otherwise be, then the warming effects observed - such as the unprecedented opening of both the NW and NE Passages in the arctic this year - are more serious signs than they would otherwise be.

    The sunspots are likely to return. With them, the sudden appearance of any CO2 warming so far concealed.

    Lmao, glad to see I'm not the only one who has nothing better to do than complain and be derogatory.
    Right with you blindman, nothing better to do or I would be doing it.
    Damn weather.

    Is the sun acting wierd?...sort of.
    What does it mean?...don't know but it sounds like blindman does and if he says it's ok then it's got to be.
