In each of 18 deep minima of solar activity of the Maunder Minimum type for the last 7500 years, there have been periods of deep temperature decline, while in the periods of high sunspot maxima, there have been periods of global warming.
“Such changes in the climate of the Earth could be caused only by lasting and significant changes in the Sun,” says Dr. Abdussamatov, “because there was absolutely no industrial effect on nature in those times.”
“A similar rise in solar radiation has not been observed in at least 700 years. However, its consequence - the global warming of climate that followed - was not an anomalous event in the life of the Earth.
“Climate on the Earth has periodically changed, and
our planet has repeatedly survived global warming, comparable to that of
the current period, after each of which episodes the temperature has
dropped deeply. Neither temperature drop nor warming lasts longer than
the 200-year fluctuations of size and luminosity of the Sun.
“Consequently, we should expect not the
catastrophic melting of ice, but, on the contrary, the gradual growth of
ice caps at the poles. It has already begun: the area of ice cover in
the Arctic in September 2008 (4.52 mln. km2), in spite of all forecasts,
rose by 390 thousand km2 above that of a year ago (when it was 4.13 mln.
km2) and in the subsequent four months it grew substantially further."
