Solar activity to fall by 60% during the 2030s to conditions last seen during the 17th century ‘mini ice age’

A new model of the Sun’s solar cycle is producing unprecedentedly accurate predictions of irregularities within the Sun’s 11-year heartbeat. Predictions from the model suggest that solar activity will fall by 60% during the 2030s to conditions last seen

The weak solar cycle and its consequences

At this year's Fall Meeting of American Geophysical Union, held in San Francisco (December 9 - 13), several scientists made a presentation on weak Solar Cycle 24 and its consequences. They agree that the current solar cycle is on track to be

Why current climate is anomaly, and ice age climate is normal Earth's climate

The Ice Age isn't coming, because it is already here. According to author and researcher Rolf Witzsche the Ice Age Climate is the normal climate for the Earth and it has been for more than 85% of the last million years. Because glaciation
