    Amid the dimmest Sun since 1978 – a month without sunspots

    The sun today is cue-ball blank, a perfect unmarred sphere: The sun has just passed an entire calendar month with no sunspots. The last time this happened, in August 2008, the sun was in the nadir of a century-class Solar Minimum. The current stretch of blank suns shows that Solar Minimum has returned, and it…

    Declining Solar Activity

    BOB HOYE In the 1990s, solar physicists, Penn and Livingston, called for a long decline in solar activity. This is the case and it is nice to see such work confirmed by events. Solar Cycles # 23 and 24 are the weakest since the early 1900s. The current run of consecutive Spotless Days is out…

    It appears to be a good read, but I only read part of it. My own viewpoint is that the insolation of the southern hemisphere rather than the norther is what allows the state changes to occur, but that some other random variation is the actual trigger. My reason is that the Southern hemisphere has far more ocean than the northern, and this is where the energy balance of solar energy is primarily lagged at.
