Will the planet continue to heat up or will the absence of sunspots help it to remain stable, or even cool down? The sun is the least active it's been in decades and the dimmest it's been in a hundred years. The same thing happened during the Little Ice Age, which lasted from about 1300 to 1850. But the sun is coming to life again.
In the coldest period, between 1645 and 1715, there was also a temporary lull in solar storms. During that time, access to Greenland was cut off by ice, and canals in the Netherlands were frozen. Glaciers in the Alps swallowed up whole villages.
Spaceweather.com reports that a new sunspot has appeared, so the earth may not be spared from global warming after all. This means that it's time to solve our CO2 emissions problems!Researcher Philip Landrigan says, "Our study supports the necessity of improving air pollution around the world. We need to begin to make these improvements through industry emission controls, traffic reduction policies, and increased enforcement of traffic regulations."
