Electroverse (.net): NASA has been warning of a Grand Solar Minimum (GSM) for the past decade-or-so, and says the sun could be in a GSM phase for 10% to 30% of the time. However, the modern AGW dogma has stopped the agency short of drawing a connection between reduced solar output and “ice age” type weather events.
There is evidence of a long-term weakening trend in the magnetic field strength of sunspots. Matt Penn and William Livingston of the National Solar Observatory predict that by the time Solar Cycle 25 arrives, magnetic fields on the sun will be so weak that few if any sunspots will be formed. Independent lines of research involving helioseismology and surface polar fields tend to support their conclusion”.
Sunspot activity during a Grand Solar Minimum plays a significant role in producing extreme “ice-age” type cold weather events in the Northern Hemisphere while, paradoxically, at the same time causes Arctic regions to become warmer — this chimes with what we’re seeing today, and also neatly ties-in with NASA’s ‘Maunder Minimum Temperature Reconstruction Map’.

Global Cooling! Scientists Say Low Solar Activity To Cause Temps To Plummet
The sun is entering a period of “solar minimum” that could cause temperatures to plummet by up to 2C over 20 years and trigger a global famine, according to experts.
In 1975 Newsweek warned of global cooling just before the earth was to start warming:
There are ominous signs that the Earth’s weather patterns have begun to change dramatically and that these changes may portend a drastic decline in food production — with serious political implications for just about every nation on Earth. The drop in food output could begin quite soon, perhaps only 10 years from now.
In May 1985 scientists with the British Antarctic Survey shocked the world when they announced the discovery of a huge hole in the ozone layer over Antarctica promoting the 1896 greenhouse theory and global warming became all the rage.
(The progressive left switched from global cooling to global warming then to climate change to cover just about every change in the weather)
The 2015 Paris Climate (Change) Accords that exempted the world’s biggest poulters, China, India and Russia while placing a massive economic burden on the United States was the dream of Barack Obama and Joe Biden. Thankfully, Donald J. Trump withdrew.
Joe Biden has vowed to rejoin the Paris Accords even though no nation has come close to achieving their carbon goals.

Barack Obama’s first UN climate change meeting:
“No nation, however large or small, wealthy or poor, can escape the impact of climate change. Rising sea levels threaten every coastline. More powerful storms and floods threaten every continent. More frequent droughts and crop failures breed hunger and conflict in places where hunger and conflict already thrive. On shrinking islands, families are already being forced to flee their homes as climate refugees.”

It figures, doesn’t it? Our BPT rule of thumb: before deciding on what side of important geo-political issue you take, see who is for it and who is against.

And day and night Shall not cease.” God.
