A new model of the Sun's solar cycle is producing unprecedentedly accurate predictions of irregularities within the Sun's 11-year heartbeat. The model draws on dynamo effects in two layers of the Sun, one close to the surface and one deep within its convection zone. Predictions from the model suggest that solar activity will fall by 60 per cent during the 2030s to conditions last seen during the 'mini ice age' that began in 1645.

Sweet.  Maybe I'll try to buy Tony's Alabama land away from him before he finds out that it might actually be pleasant there in 20 years!

You must have been here early..

Outside of a few cloudy days last week, it's been mid to high 90's here in west-central AL...heat index in the 108-110 degree range this week.

Been great for water sales!

Is that a widely held belief?

Oh, so we're going to suddenly start believing in computer models now?

BTW, they're talking about sunspot activity. No mention of how that translates to how much energy reaches Earth. You can be sure it's not 60%.

Haven't sunspot models already been a better predictor of global temperature trends than any of this toxic water vapor malarky?

It shouldn't be to tough.  Simply cease the anthropomorphic activity that caused this.

NC has been brutal, too. I think 12 out of 30 days in June were 95+ here.

I don't know. Source?

I just think it's funny that the same people who instantly poo-poo climate models are suddenly all about computer models when it suits them. I believe it's called "confirmation bias."
