Earth approaching sunspot records
 __________________




21 Sep 09 - "The sun has surface temperatures as hot as 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit," says this article by Corey Jones in The Topeka Capitol Journal.

"But the sun's recent activity, or lack thereof, may be linked to the pleasant summer temperatures the midwest has enjoyed this year, said Charlie Perry, a research hydrologist with the U.S. Geological Survey in Lawrence.

"In July through August, 51 consecutive days passed without a spot, one day short of tying the record of 52 days from the early 1900s," says the article, but Perry expects the numbers to climb.

"Perry, who studies sunspots and solar activity in his spare time, received an undergraduate degree in physics at Kansas State University and a Ph.D in physics and astronomy at The University of Kansas. He also has spent time as a meteorologist.

"A sunspot, Perry explains, is a location on the sun's surface that is cooler than the surrounding area. When there are more sunspots, the sun's surface becomes more dynamic and an opposite effect takes place, releasing more heat and energy when other parts of the sun become hotter.

"There's a fair chance it will be a cooler winter than last year," Perry said.

'Perry said there is a feeling from some in the scientific community the Earth may be entering into a grand minimum, which is an extended period with low numbers of sunspots that creates cooler temperatures. The year without a summer, which was 1816, was during a grand minimum in 1800 to 1830 when Europe became cooler, Perry said. Another grand minimum was in 1903 to 1913."

          This article, which is way more balanced than most, then includes a
          rebuttal by a naysayer, who suggests that we believe the propaganda
          disseminated by the IPCC.

          The article also includes links to websites that Perry recommends.
