Cut to the chase it's supposed to get colder.

American Astronomical Society announced today that it appears sunspots could disappear altogether in the next handful of years. The results of three separate studies seem to show that even as the current sunspot cycle swells toward the solar maximum, the sun could be heading into a more-dormant period, with activity during the next 11-year sunspot cycle greatly reduced or even
eliminated. “If we are right, this could be the last solar maximum we’ll see for a
few decades,” Hill said. “That would affect everything from space
exploration to Earth’s climate.”

That tends to happen towards the warmer months and the summer.

More than usual, I mean. In KC we're not usually frying until after the first two weeks of June, not by the start of it.

Strange. It can get pretty hot here in NJ pretty early.

Whenever I go to Missouri around July/August I'm always burning up that I know :thumb:

I think the activity is presently high, and will even be increasing for a while yet. But the activity is expected to diminish unto a long period of little to no activity - which is when things would cool down.

So the cold is not something we would be presently experiencing. But cold is what they expect to come.

But what kind of cold are we talking about here? New ice age?

Even though I doubt an ice age can happen within one lifetime... you can't be sure. Stock up the nuts.

Maybe this will offset global warming so we can start burning fossel fuels on overtime.

The cool kids don't call it global warming anymore...they call it climate change, so that they can blame oil for cooling and heating as the need arises.:laugh2::laugh2::applause:
