BBC: Real risk of a Maunder minimum 'Little Ice Age' says leading scientist

"Now a leading scientist from Reading University has told me that the current rate of decline in solar activity is such that there’s a real risk of seeing a return of such conditions.

I’ve been to see Professor Mike Lockwood to take a look at the work he has been conducting into the possible link between solar activity and climate patterns.

According to Professor Lockwood the late 20th century was a period when the sun was unusually active and a so called ‘grand maximum’ occurred around 1985.

Since then the sun has been getting quieter.

By looking back at certain isotopes in ice cores, he has been able to determine how active the sun has been over thousands of years.

Following analysis of the data, Professor Lockwood believes solar activity is now falling more rapidly than at any time in the last 10,000 years.

He found 24 different occasions in the last 10,000 years when the sun was in exactly the same state as it is now - and the present decline is faster than any of those 24.

Based on his findings he’s raised the risk of a new Maunder minimum from less than 10% just a few years ago to 25-30%.

And a repeat of the Dalton solar minimum which occurred in the early 1800s, which also had its fair share of cold winters and poor summers, is, according to him, ‘more likely than not’ to happen.

He believes that we are already beginning to see a change in our climate - witness the colder winters and poor summers of recent years - and that over the next few decades there could be a slide to a new Maunder minimum."

Can you put The Onion in the title so we dont waste our time clicking on these links?

yeah, Chris

I was expecting a serious anteater story, and instead I get this crap.

Sounds like something

your kind would say...

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.

I am not sorry I wasted your time.

p.s. if there were a 'philosophy' section I would have posted it there...

Tough introspective interview

Perk up guy you can not waste your life. Its a journey that your forced unto. From birth to death and each and every one is forced to it. It really made me laugh though, poor fellow was feeling down.

Wonder what his next fifteen year plan is?


I had an uncle

who was an aunteater. Interesting fellow.

Do you why anteaters rarely

Do you why anteaters rarely get sick?

They're full of lots of antybodies

That's hilarious. Though aardvarks do have a rough life...

Well, he could have studied American freedom instead . . . .

. . . . no, that wouldn't have worked out either.

Ha ha ha

must have lifted this story from the New Zealand department of conservation, who stopped a coal mine going ahead until they had collected the "endangered" giant snails that lived in the area....then promptly put them in a faulty chiller and killed the lot!

You know what they say - "easy come...

Must have been almost as awful as being a...
