A new model of the sun's solar cycles predicts falling earth temperatures in the 2030s

Article here.
Prof Valentina Zharkova at the National Astronomy Meeting in Llandudno.

Professor Zharkova presented a solar model which proposes that dynamo effects in two layers of the sun--one surface layer, and one deeper layer--can, when considered together, match data for sunspot activity/solar flares and eruptions. The layers have different periodic cycles, with the result that they can either be working against each other (cancelling each other out), working together to greatest effect, or somewhere in between, depending on where each is in its periodic changes.

The theory suggests that there will be something like another Maunder Minimum as a result of the two layers cancelling each other out between 2030 and 2040.

You may enjoy the video--but, it dates from a few years ago, and has nothing of the new theory in it.

The notes about the Maunder Minimum, that the Thames froze and the period lasted from 1646 through 1715, must be a striking thought to Brits. The States were not around then, of course--how much of North America froze?

I would be interested in knowing why the Maunder Minimum lasted so much longer than ten years, if the two-layers dynamic only drops the solar eruptions to their least amount for about ten.

What do you think?

Radio amateurs have always been familiar with the 11 year solar cycle since the change in input affects greatly the ionization of the F1/F2 layers and hence the highest frequencies we can "skip" off those layers. The recent research shows two interacting effects correlates with historic records and predicts a cooling of the earth 2020-2030.

Cosmo-climatology has been conveniently ignored by the climate change brigade except for a work by Henrik Svensmark and Nigel Calder entitled the chilling stars

Rather fortuitously this coincides with my retirement and re-location to warmer climes :-)
