Just straight up propaganda: The sun is quieter than normal, but don’t panic!
“No Maunder Minimum. Certainly no Little Ice Age,” said David Hathaway, an astrophysicist who once headed NASA’s solar physics branch at the Marshall Space Flight Center. “The next cycle looks like it’s going to be very much like this one.”
He explains that, while the sun does dim during a minimum, it’s only by a tenth of a per cent, which translates into a tenth of a degree Celsius. And with the warming by about 1C that we’ve seen due to climate change — and the warming that is to come — it’s unlikely that we’ll notice.
Because while a rise from .03 to .04 percent of the atmosphere is the driver of catastrophic climate change that demands the complete destruction of the world economy — a .1 percent drop in energy coming from the sun is completely insignificant.
