By focusing all our attention on meeting the challenges of global warming, we are ignoring even remedial preparation for global cooling that could be more disastrous than global warming. A colder earth would mean less land to raise food in northern and even temperate climates.
The first sunspot appeared in January of this year and lasted only two days, Chapman wrote. There are other occasional sunspots, but they last only a day or two usually.
"The reason this matters is that there is a close correlation between variations in the sunspot cycle and earth's climate. The previous time a cycle was delayed like this was in the Dalton Minimum, an especially cold period that lasted several decades from 1790."
