A new model of the Sun’s solar cycle is producing unprecedentedly accurate predictions of irregularities within the Sun’s 11-year heartbeat. The model draws on dynamo effects in two layers of the Sun, one close to the surface and one deep within its convection zone. Predictions from the model suggest that solar activity will fall by 60 per cent during the 2030s to conditions last seen during the ‘mini ice age’ that began in 1645.
So the science is in once again. I have to wonder are we going to hear cries from the left, to lower gas taxes, a guzzler subsidy, tax credits for barbeques ? . They have always said their concerns about fuel use and alternate energy had nothing to do with crony capitalism and everything to do with preventing the disasters associated with climate change. Now they have the chance to demonstrate their sincerity.
