Just found this and it says that the sun spots are getting weaker and could lead to a very weak sun spot cycle. There might not even be any. This is because the sun's magnetic field is weakening.

I read it and thought, "How will that affect us here?"

Damn article didn't say

Anyone know what will happen to the Earth with less or no sun spots?

Nice find, really interesting.
I don't think this will have much of an effect, maybe the earth will cool down and bit and shut the eco warriors up for a while, but i think this is another example of people trying to predict something they might not fully understand yet.

It'll just get colder, sun spots are actually hotter, so the less of them, the less heat the Earth will get, thus, we'll get some global cooling. Then the global warming activists will change their minds yet again, and start saying we are all going to die from global cooling. Just like they did in the 70's.
#12
Yeah, it has absolutely no impact at all
Except maybe less Aurora Borealis because there are less sunstorms, but that has no influence whatsoever on the weather.
EDIT:^Nope, just no
Sunspots may be hotter, but it also means that elsewhere on the sun it cools down (if I have been given correct explanation about the phenomenon that is). So the average output by the sun remains the same.
And global warming has NOTHING to do with increased solar activity (that increases by 1% over 1 million years, so over the last 100 years that's .0001% increase, nowhere near enough to have any impact). Also, global warming actually isn't the best term for what's going on, climate change is way better. It will affect different regions in a different way, actually making it possible to have cooler regions (but global average temperature increases).

Sorry for the rant about climate change, I just want people to have correct information and not some gibberish they hear from Fox News and the likes

Aren't sunspots like bad in some way?


No, the sun has periods of 11 years that goes from little sun spots to many sunspots, has been happening for probably billions of years.

That may be helpful in understanding some of what will be going on with the sun.

To whoever said it, sunspot aren't bad. They allow the suns magnetic poles to flip allowing solar cycles.

However to answer your question of what will happen TS, nothing special really.

Cycle 25, could be greatly reduced. In fact, some scientists are questioning whether this drop in activity could lead to a second Maunder Minimum, which was a 70-year period from 1645 to 1715 when the sun showed virtually no sunspots

You must have some poor reasoning skills then.

Like poipoi said, the sun's output isn't dependent on sun spot frequency.

Therefore, your reasoning doesn't make sense.

If he was actually right, then yeah, but he's not. I'll even use the pits favorite "reliable" information source.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sunspot

The number of sunspots correlates with the intensity of solar radiation over the period since 1979, when satellite measurements of absolute radiative flux became available. Since sunspots are darker than the surrounding photosphere it might be expected that more sunspots would lead to less solar radiation and a decreased solar constant. However, the surrounding margins of sunspots are brighter than the average, and so are hotter; overall, more sunspots increase the sun's solar constant or brightness.

We don't know if it will or not however there does appear to be a correlation between low sunspot activity and cooler global temperatures..

It's Ethan Hanus. Don't bother. Anyways, climate change seems to be widely misunderstood by people on both sides of the aisle. People like to pin down a few factors to changing climate but there are many factors which come into play in the environment and understanding climate science also requires you to understand how these factors interact with each other.

Then what is true? I've always been taught that high sunspot activity always coincides with higher global temperatures. There's no reason why someone should ignore climate change because of it. According to this study I got from Stanford, the solar cycles only account for a small portion of observed temperature changes.

it comes down to. anything that points at global warming is true, if it doesnt, its a lie.

why has this summer been so wet and cold?
oh right, the rain is climate change, the cold is too

two weeks later, holy shit its hot out!
yeah, climate change causes this heat.

Well extrapolating experiences with local weather to global climate is already a pretty foolish thing to do. Everyone seems to do it though, both climate-change skeptics and non-skeptics.
