“The sun is entering one of the deepest Solar Minima of the Space Age,” wrote Dr Tony Phillips just six weeks ago, on 27 Sep 2018.

Sunspots have been absent for most of 2018 and Earth’s upper atmosphere is responding, says Phillips, editor of spaceweather.com.

Data from NASA’s TIMED satellite show that the thermosphere (the uppermost layer of air around our planet) is cooling and shrinking, literally decreasing the radius of the atmosphere.

To help track the latest developments, Martin Mlynczak of NASA’s Langley Research Center and his colleagues recently introduced the “Thermosphere Climate Index.”

The Thermosphere Climate Index (TCI) tells how much heat nitric oxide (NO) molecules are dumping into space. During Solar Maximum, TCI is high (meaning “Hot”); during Solar Minimum, it is low (meaning “Cold”).

“Right now, it is very low indeed … 10 times smaller than we see during more active phases of the solar cycle,” says Mlynczak

“If current trends continue, it could soon set a Space Age record for cold,” says Mlynczak. “We’re not there quite yet, but it could happen in a matter of months.”

So let me get this straight. A lack of sunspot activity is going to cause possible record cold. But if the earth heats up, it's not due to the sun, but rather human behavior. Ok makes sense to me.

Martin Mlynczak of NASA’s Langley Research Center wants to be concentrating on Moslem outreach and not spouting heretical claims that sunspots, not man, are a major influence on Climate.

Barack Hussein said so.


Seriously aren't you glad Trump pulled us out of the Paris Climate Accord and open up our energy production

Not sure how to interpret these stories....
Time will tell what climate is in our future. TM

"However, research has shown these changes high above Earth are unlikely to have much of an impact on weather at the planet's surface - including climate change.“
