Headed for lowest solar activity in four centuries – ‘The primary concern is famine’ (Video)

Headed for lowest solar activity in four centuries – Video (Ice Age Now, Aug 18, 2014):

“The primary concern is famine.”


We appear to be headed for conditions similar to the Maunder Minimum, says this video from Suspicious0bservers. This low in solar activity comes after what was likely the highest solar activity in the last 3,000 years.



Here are a few observations from the video:

Antarctica Sets Yet Another Sea-Ice Record

Antarctica sets yet another sea-ice record (Ice Age Now, July 29, 2014):

“I don’t know about you, but I’m really impressed,” says reader Ralph Fato. “Not just how far from record ice there is but the continuation of it. And last I checked this was part of the ‘globe’.”

Ice Ages Triggered By Solar Activity … Or Lack Thereof (Video)

Ice ages triggered by solar activity – Video (Ice Age Now, July 29, 2014):

(Or lack thereof.)

We’ve had a total of eight mini-ice ages during the last 11,500 years (the Holocene), says Jan Theart. At least seven of these were triggered by low solar activity.

But look at how many of of those years were warmer than today! It was far warmer during both the Holocene Climate Optimum and the Roman Climate Optimum.

Anyone who tells you that our recent episode of warming was “unprecedented” is either lying or misinformed.

NOAA – 28,504 Cold Records Set During Last Year

NOAA – 28,504 Cold Records Set During Last Year (Sunshine Hours, July 24 2014):

28,504 Low Max Records were set in last 365 days according to the NOAA.

A “Low Max” means that the maximum temperatures for the day was the lowest it has ever been.

This indicates daytime cooling.

Only 13205 High Max records were set. That is  over a 2:1 ratio. Brrr.

Coolest Summer On Record In The United States

Coolest Summer On Record In The US (Real Science, July 26, 2014):

The frequency of 90 degree days in the US has been plummeting for 80 years, and 2014 has had the lowest frequency of 90 degree days through July 23 on record. The only other year which came close was 1992, and that was due to dust in the atmosphere from Mt Pinatubo.

Coldest June since measurements began in Adélie Land, Antarctica  (The Watchers, July 14, 2014):

Meteo-France is reporting an unusually cold month of June at their station base Dumont d’Urville located in Adélie Land (Terre Adélie), Antarctica. They recorded an average temperature of -22.4° C throughout June, which is 6.6° C lower than normal temperature for the period from 1981 – 2010.

This makes June 2014 the coldest June since measurements began in 1956, and the second coldest month of all months combined (after September 1958 with -23.5° C).

The daily temperature for June was also beaten with -34.9° C recorded, previous record was -33.4° C.
