Sun’s bizarre activity may trigger another ice age

By on July 12, 2013

The sun is acting bizarrely and scientists have no idea why. Solar activity is in gradual decline, a change from the norm which in the past triggered a 300-year-long mini ice age.

Three leading solar scientists presented the very latest data about the weakening solar activity at a teleconference yesterday in Boulder, Colorado, organised by the American Astronomical Society. It featured experts from Nasa, the High Altitude Observatory and the National Solar Observatory who described how solar activity, as measured by the formation of sunspots and by massive explosions on the sun’s surface, has been falling steadily since the mid-1940s.

The sun goes through a regular 11-year cycle with a maximum, when sunspot activity is at its peak, followed by a minimum when sunspot numbers are reduced and are smaller and less energetic. We are supposed to be at a peak of activity, at solar maximum.

Outside the norm
The current situation, however, is outside the norm and the number of sunspots seems in steady decline. The sun was undergoing “bizarre behaviour” said Dr Craig DeForest of the society.

“The sun’s current maximum activity period is very late and very weak, leading to speculation that the sunspot cycle itself could be shutting down or entering a dormant phase,” he said before the teleconference.

    There is not going to be an ice age and their is no global warming and I will inquire of God if I am interested

      Do we have any responsibility to observe the signs of the times?

    Not man

    Don’t get me wrong I love to listen to Rick and will probably “hopefully be listening to Ricks program until god brings me home

      Interesting.. care to expand on this?

        expand on what?

    Read Book of Revelation. Men being scorched by the sun doesn’t sound like an Ice Age to me. The earth is going through the Milkey Way which has much debris and it is causing a lens effect on earth right now. Even if the sun’s current cycle is shutting down or entering a dormant phase, this lens effect will make the sun hotter and more unpredictable regarding solar flares and EMP’s. With the chemtrails,and Haarp, the jet stream has changed, making it cooler and wet in some places, and dry and hot in others. Chemtrails trap the heat causing global heat.

    You can throw out economic cycles that Rick talks about and weather cycles because everything is being rigged and manipulated by powers to be. They own the weather and money supply. They can do pretty much what they want to do with both.

      No they can only do what God allows them to do and nothing more! One day all men will be repaid according to their works.

      God doesn’t need global warming to scorch men. God always does the impossible that is why he is God. He can scorch men right in the middle of the coldest Ice Age. He created the sun by his spoken word and it obeyed him. That is probably how he will do it. Funny how God’s creation obeys him except for the human race that he created.

      The only Power that matters is God’s power. He may use men for His purposes, He may allow Satan to use Men. No matter, God is and always will be in control and the Power behind whatever happens. All the evil men and all the powers of darkness combined are no match for the Creator. The “powers that be” with all their weapons whether Haarp, Nukes or any other of the weapons they have are useless against He who Created life and who holds the key to eternal life and death.

      There absolutely are cycles, weather cycles, life cycles, economic cycles, weekly cycles, annual cycles, etc. I know there are because God Created them too. Brother Rick is simply pointing out the obvious. The beast powers that are clearly evident are scary for sure, but the worst they can do is kill us, and we are going to die eventually anyway. As is stated in the Bible, life is like a vapor, it appeareth for a little while and then vanishes away.” Our hope is in the resurrection and eternal life with God.

      The “powers that be” own nothing, they only have been allowed temporary control. Their end will be in a lake of fire while separated from God and life for eternity.

    Also, temperatures are colder in parts of Europe because Core exit was used in gulf oil catastrophe, to disperse the oil but it destroyed the gulf stream, thus preventing the warm air from the gulf reaching Europe. The gulf stream goes out into the Atlantic and returns.

    God doesn’t need Global warming to scorch men but he does need a very hot sun!

    Rev.16:8, And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.

    We all know who wins in the end. Christians inherit the Kingdom of God. Christ defeats the armies of the world including Satan, the false prophet, and the Anti-Christ. None of these facts are being disputed including the fact that God is ultimately in control of everything. Having said all that, true economic cycles are not being allowed to develop because the shadow government manipulate everything.

    There is nothing true or real about the economy. The shadow government plan on killing the dollar and bringing all the currencies of the world down thus causing the severest depression the world has seen. This economic upheaval along with WW3 will usher in the New World Order.

    Regarding the weather, God is allowing men to use Haarp, and chemtrails to control the weather but they will be punished for destroying the planet when Christ returns.

    If we are in the last days, an ice age is inconsistent with the book of Revelation regarding God judgement, using the sun, to pour out his wrath on the unrepentant nations. I guess we will all know soon enough.

    The earth is over 4 BILLION years old. It has been all water, all fire, all ice and so on. Only a moron would take a couple of hundred years of climate and believe they could figure out what is going to happen. A couple of hundred years out of 4 BILLION is like ONE grain of sand on a huge beach, it’s nothing. Whatever is going to happen will happen when it does and there’s nothing we can do about it. One thing I AM sure of though is we have to get rid of Democrats, they’re destroying this planet.

    enough of the idiocy, the peak was back in 09, Nasa has already revised the expected max down 3 times and still got it way above whats really happening.
    then theyr tried to spin a double peak cycle, thats failed miserably too so far.

    we are quite likely approaching a low point, similar to that prior cycle that did cause extreme cold in past times. Maunder minimum was one of the recent past named events. you can see plenty of GOOD info re the sun at wattsupwiththatDOTcom they have a dedicated solar event page as well as sea ice n all sorts of other stuff.
    as for the warming crap. NO appreciable global warming for some 18 years!
    even the IPCC and others have now HAD TO admit that. so now they say the heat that isnt, has managed to vanish to deep oceans?
    uh yeah riiight suure. ROFLMAO.
    the biggest Global conjob ever, oh apart from the banking system that is.

    People need to prepare. This is a REAL emergency. Buy food, head south, prepare for chaos. Read Global Crisis by Geoffrey Parker – it’s a big book – but this is a big problem.
