The Amateur Radio mailing lists are all abuzz with the news story that broke yesterday about the possibility of the recurrence of the Maunder Minimum. I even posted a link yesterday and bit hard on the hook myself.
While I tend to defer to the experts, I have to wonder sometimes.
At the end of the 70's the media was all ga-ga with predictions that were going around about the coming of another Ice Age.
In the late 90's and throughout the 2000 decade, a lot of people were preoccupied about Global Warming.
Now we're back to predictions of another possible mini-Ice Age again.
What we have to face is that Ol' Sol goes through many cycles. He'll be around a lot longer than any of us. What's a mere second to him is a lifetime for us. What's going to be with the Sun is going to be; and there's nothing we can do about it anyway, when you come right down to it. So we might as well relax and just enjoy the ride.
Good advice for me to listen to, too!
