Frontiers of Junk Science: Maunder Minimum

Not all scientists are on board with Al Gore’s global warming mythology and accompanying hysteria. In fact, many scientists are currently seeking funding to research the possibility that we may be on the verge of a new ice age. The Danish Meteorological Institute released a study in 1991 showing that global temperatures follow solar cycles. Canadian scientists are planning to analyze the impact of the sun on the earth’s climate and the possibility that another ice age is imminent. Solar activity occurs in cycles of 11 years, and thus far, in the current cycle, the sun has been unusually quiet. The sun’s inactivity could indicate the beginning of what is known as the Maunder Minimum. This event occurs every few hundred years and lasts possibly as long as a century. The last Maunder Minimum occurred in 1650 and was marked by 50 years of terribly freezing winters and cool summers. These findings prove once again what should be blatantly obvious: that Al Gore’s man-made global-warming circus is not scientific, but rather is a scare tactic used for the promotion of class warfare and the redistribution of wealth. Liberals hope that, in addition to piling up political capital with global warming, they can also guilt-trip Americans into surrendering their quality of life.

  • Please prove the cycle...find just one so called Maunder Minimum other than the period between 1645 and 1715 and then find written records for this period to show there was limited sunspot activity.You are the one who practices pseudo-science not Al Gore.Global Warming Is A Fact and due to natural feed back it will likely get much worse.There are posibilities like the disruption of natural ocean currents that will change this out come but since as humans we have limited observation on the true climate change over time it would be wise to reduce our output of greenhouse gases.Ice core studies have show a direct link between greenhouse gases and increases in tempurature...it also makes sense to someone much smarter than you.

    Thanks for stopping by and showing your immaturity.

  • Liberals are no more to blame for pushing anthropormorphic global warming than conservatives would be if conservatives decide to push the notion we are headed for a new ice age based upon Maunder Minimum principles.

    Continued global warming at the present rate will be catastrophic; likewise a total reversal of climate and a new ice age would also be catastrophic.

    Scientists must deal with new data as the data emerges and it is their job to try to make responsible predictions. Responsible governments are supposed to act in accordance with the best scientific predictions.

    I would much rather have my government prepare me for the worst scenario and then have that event not happen rather than the other way around.

    The possibility of a Maunder Minimum makes the job that much harder. If the Maunder Minimum theory has validity, responsible governments will have to prepare for both catastrophic possibilities. What we should not do is nothing.

    We should all rejoice if neither happens or if their effects cancel each other out. But blaming liberals or conservatives is silly.

  • Well said, David.
    Objective science, journalism (and even art criticism) seem to be things of the past.
    Rampant rhetoric and media dramatisation and irrational belief system choice is the nature of our time.
