Dalton Minimum Returns

We are about to enter a Grand Minimum

21 Apr 09 - Paul Stanko of NOAA writes meteorologist Anthony Watts to tell him of an interesting development in his tracking of the International Sunspot Number (ISN).

Paul writes:

          My running mean of the International Sunspot Number for 2009
          just dipped below 1.00.  For anything comparable you now need
          to go back before 1913 (which scored a 1.43) which could mean
          we’re now competing directly with the Dalton Minimum.

          Just in case you’d like another tidbit, here is something that puts
          our 20 to 30 day spotless runs in perspective… the mother of all
          spotless runs (in the heart of the Maunder Minimum, of course!)
          was from October 15, 1661 to August 2, 1671.  It totaled 3579
          consecutive spotless days, all of which had obs.

          To say that that we in interesting times is a huge understatement.
          We are about to enter a Grand Minimum, which in the past have
          produced a cooler planet, while our government is preparing for
          run-away global warming.  Who could have predicted this stupidity?
