How Much Farther Down Can the Sun Slide?

Go to Watts Up With That for more background information. Compare the plot for the current minimum with the plot for the previous solar minimum in 1996. Why are the two plots so different? No one knows.

Modern satellites and scientific instruments for studying the sun have only been around for a short time, historically. It is still too early to say how the developing minimum ranks alongside historical minimums such as the Dalton or the Maunder.

The sun is too far away to tax, so most governments pay little attention to its comings and goings, its lapses and its waxes. But there is a lot of money to be made from faux climate catastrophes and from carbon hysteria. Cap and trade, carbon tax, fines and penalties out the gazoo. Create a boogeyman out of plant food to scare the kids and zombies. Anything to sell papers. Anything to get elected. Anything to shift the center of power from the marketplace to the reich.

At least if this keeps up when we have a space going civilisation & the ability to light up cities by orbital mirrors the "environmentalists" won't be able to pbject that it causes undesireable global warming.

Yes. Space-based mirrors could conceivably stave off an ice invasion of the cities of the far north and far south.

The incredible momentum of the global warming delusion, as propagated by the world's media, is just a reflection of the stupidity of humans in general. Humans are vulnerable to "the big lie."

Propaganda-meisters such as those who brought the ascendancy of Obama, will always have fertile fields to seed as long as humans remain so stupidly gullible.

Which is why these leftists import stupid people.
