The end of sunspots?

While the Gillard Government and the multiparty committee on Climate Change plot to tax Australians with a Carbon Tax, the Sun is doing something completely different. The Federal Government and its trained Climate Change Commission like to deny any link between the suns activity and global temperatures. However the Maunder Minimum of low sunspot numbers between 1645 and 1715 coincided with the coldest part of the Little Ice Age.  This included the very cold winter of 1708-09 when hundreds of thousands of people died from famine and cold.

Three papers were released this week at the American Astronomical Society meeting in New Mexico USA. “The solar cycle may be going into a hiatus,” Frank Hill, associate director of the National Solar Observatory’s Solar Synoptic Network, he also said “If we are right, this could be the last solar maximum we’ll see for a few decades, that would affect everything from space exploration to Earth’s climate.”

The Australian Federal Governments Climate Change Commission says all the science is settled. Really? When the solar physicists have no idea what these changes mean for the sun?

The Earth would be a frozen ball of ice without the sun.

Will we end up getting Climate Change refugees from a frozen Tasmania heading north to warmer climes?
