#869: The Sun is going out!


Am I, to paraphrase Bob Herzog, to understand that the sun is still not "putting out"? I wrote an article discussing this issue--which I naturally cannot find right now--in which I discussed the fact that the beginning of the latest sunspot cycle was late.

Having a look at the link from Pournelle's site, we find this pithy quote:
Typically as you go through the ten or eleven year solar activity cycle you see the numbers go up or down. The lowest number is 64 or 68. The numbers 71 or 72 are very low, but they usually start to go up. We are at the end of a cycle, but the numbers still haven’t gone up. We have been joking around coffee that we may be seeing the Sun about to shut down.
Point being? It's looking to get chilly.

So over the next several years, we're going to start hearing the "global warming=man made=apocalypse" crowd start screeching about "global cooling" and they'll try to convince us that it's all our fault. They've already started preparing the way by switching their code words from "global warming" to "climate change".

And here is a highly interesting article about eco-catastrophism and motivations therefore. (I got this link from the same source as the first one.) Dayum, nothing like telling it like it is, I always sez.

I may have to look up this guy's books.
