A look at possible implications of current and continuing low solar activity.

The Next Grand Minimum

The is a very interesting 40-minute video presentation by Nir Shaviv on the solar-climate connection and cosmic rays.

Shaviv first presents the evidence that the sun affects climate before explaining the cosmic ray ideas.

    I don’t know how far back they go but in the last year or so I’ve seen several papers noting that cosmic rays increase our cloud cover and thus the albedo. In follow on papers I read that the sun tends to blast away a lot of the cosmic rays until it takes a nap.But then the Klimate Klowns keep insisting that the bright shiny thing in the sky has no real affect on climate variability. Yeah, sure.

    of course then there all are the other marvelous papers from Nikolov, Zeller, and Scafetta among others showing the various other major effectors of solar insolation and in particular the precessional shift in the time of year of our closest pass to the sun along with variation in the size of our solar orbit.

    All in all the concept that my backyard grill is going to set the Earth on fire is ludicrous. But then if we cannot control our climate to any extent how do all those useless PhD’s raise millions in grant money?

    As of December 2018 the strength of the polar fields hints at a cycle 25 with a magnitude similar to or slightly stronger than that of cycle 24.

    Solar activity to blame for jellyfish surge, expert says, as warming waters ‘rev up’ metabolism
    17th Jan. – ABC Radio Adelaide

    A researcher has poured [cold] water on “emotive” claims that warming seas have spawned an abundance of jellyfish, and instead pointed the finger at a correlation with sunspot activity.

    Key points:
    Researcher says solar cycles correlate with jellyfish numbers
    Warming waters play a part in stimulating growth
    Expert says no definitive proof that tropical stingers are moving south
    Relocated jellyfish could be from ballast water

    A particular point/question here. See linked video at 11:11, the graph on ice-rafted debris correlation. The source of that is a Bond paper fig2 here:

    It is then questioned here :

    Further used here fig 4:

    I have used that here:

    What is evident as most probable is that the correlations, especially at 5200bce and 3200 bce are the direct result of major tectonic changes/upheavals and not solar influence.

    It is worth seeing how the polar vortex is broken in the middle of the stratosphere.
