Currently, there is about the least solar activity since the Maunder minimum 1645-1715 which *may* (but not necessarily has) triggered the "Little Ice Age" with bitter cold winters. Could we head for another (possibly short) cooling period?

It’s happening. I’ve inquired about the solar minimal for awhile and scientist have been trying to predict the next one since the 1970s.

NASA says yes.

I read a big thing prior to this winter about how we may move into another mini ice age due to the lack of solar activity. They seem to expect winters to be unusually severe for a while. But, other than this week, this winter has been fairly mild. I definitely expected it to be worse.

It will be blamed on us and they'll find a way to tax us more for it.

Praetorianus Fair enough.

I think it's possible though we don't yet fully understand the effects of solar activity fluctuations.

PS: wouldn't it be great if both manmade global warming and an impending solar minimum were true and both cancel each other out?
