A big announcement from the American Astronomical Society Solar Physics Conference today. All signs right now point to an extended solar cycle, and possibly even the beginning of a new Maunder Minimum.
What that means is we may be in the beginning of a new Little Ice Age. The last one ended roughly 1850; during the Little Ice Age, temperatures were significantly colder than we’ve seen for, say, the last 100 years.
I should have more details tomorrow.
