NASA is concerned that the Sun may go into another Maunder Minimum. How will this effect "Global Warming"? Topic: Nasa research scientist
May 20, 2019 / By Jane
Question: NASA is supporting Harvard Scientists who are making the statement that the Sun is enterng into another Maunder Minimum like state. During the last Maunder Minimum, the planet got so cold that rivers froze and there were years without summers. What do you believe the chances of these scientists being right, and how would solar activity effect so-called "Global Warming"? Does the Harvard Scientists research back up Russian scientists like Dr. Khabibullo Abdusamatov who claim that the Earth is going to enter into a long cold period instead of getting warmer? http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2003SPD......

As I have said before-- the sun has been without sunspots well beyond the time that this active cycle should have started-- guess I need to sell all my solar filters for my telescopes! Nothing much to see on the surface of the sun right now. Just a featureless disk in the telescope. If this continues global temperatures WILL continue to fall-- (of course there is an "if" in that sentence)--- http://solarscience.msfc.nasa.gov/

Erica Originally Answered: Only a few planets are warming; this proves global warming is not due to increased solar radiation?
Yes, I've made this argument several times. If global warming is due to variations in the sun, then every planet in our solar system should be warming inversely proportionately to their distances from the sun. This is not the case. The IPCC chart you provide proves it further - the maximum forcing due to solar irradiance is 0.3 W/m^2, which is one-eighth the forcing due to greenhouse gases. Global warming is quite clearly not due primarily to variations in the sun.

I believe the Sun plays a big note in Temperature of course... I believe we are heading or trending into a cold age, I wouldn't label it Ice Age, but similar to that of the 60's & 70's... maybe a bit colder. I know I don't use big long scientific terms, but I get my point across of what I believe or predict... But in actuality, no one can predict what the next years are going to be like weather wise... no scientist, no politician, and not Dana... How would it effect GW? In short, it would be right beside the Easter bunny and Y2K along with other hoaxes.

This is pretty simple to explain. Once we do not have those "years without summers", they will claim its because of our contribution to global warming. Remember, NASA has already published a statement saying that global warming will be "masked" for the next few years to decades. Sounds like they are covering all the bases here.

No, NASA is supporting the research, not necessarily the findings, based on the link you have posted. Considering we've had a minimum of sunspots and low solar irradience, the temps seem to be recovering from the previous winter. February 2009 is the 9th warmest on record. http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/oa/climate/research/2009/feb/global.html#temp http://data.giss.nasa.gov/gistemp/tabledata/GLB.Ts+dSST.txt

Adallina Originally Answered: If global warming is settled, Why is the East Anglia Climatic Research Unit calling for global cooling now?
The pendulum swings both ways, my friend. We are now going to spread fear from 1972 and the ice age that was going to have the world under MILES of ice by 2011. That didn't happen so they started in on global warming. Now that the (natural) cycle is swinging back to the cooler side, they will trot out the global cooling scam again. Last time, they wanted to spread carbon powder on the polar ice caps to absorb more sunlight and warm the planet. There will be no end to it as they have found that people can be frightened by *any* kind of bs that is promulgated by someone who puts the title of "scientist" with his name. Watch out for AlGorge and his new scam, the anti-carbon tax which will cost you if you don't produce enough CO2.
