Isn't it nice when theory becomes reality? 

Jeff..

 Its much too early yet.

But we will see.

Yes, ok, I should have qualified that. I should have said isn't it nice when theories start to appear as though they may be  justified?

Agreed and there was also mention previously on this thread or perhaps the "what effect will Solar Minimum have on weather and climate take 2?"thread regarding increased volcanic / seismic activity during solar minimum which can also effect things. I'm not sure of that mechanism unless it's just straightforward physics i.e. The earth cools and the tectonic plates contract ever so slightly-unlikely to be that simple! Or it could, as someone observed be a result of changes in geomagnetic due to radiation level changes coming from the sun... 

One of the theories is that at solar minimum the earth is less protected by the sun's magnetic field thus allowing greater impact by muon's passing through the earth's core which agitates the mantle leading to more earthquake and volcanic activity at solar minimum. Given that this minimum and possibly the next will be considerably lower than any experienced in possibly 200 years we could see significant events over the next twenty years which of course in terms of volcanic activity can affect climate

But that's all purely hypothetical, jonboy: not only have muons themselves only recently been detected, their putative effects at the time of solar minima, have never, ever been either detected or measured.

I'll keep a very open mind, however.

But one suggested impact of a quiet Sun, the change in UV levels impacting upon the jet stream, leading it to have a tendency towards being more meridional, does seem to be happening.

Down from 4.09x1010 W Cold to 4.05x1010 W Cold and how long it will take before it goes down to the level at 2.05x1010 W Cold (02/2009).

Definitely, a theory of a ‘solarist’ such as I.  We have witnessed this, more extremes, more ‘ruts’ and crazy temp fluctuations.

On another comment...Re volcanic activity.....I’m out there on my Sig....major eruption in 2020s to cement global step down

Wether her prediction is right or wrong an interesting video. If right we should all move south! And by south i don’t mean Spain but maybe Ghana, Nigeria!

Just be aware, she has no qualifications or publications related to climate, and the GWPF is a climate change denial group who have got her onboard and highlighted particular slides and hidden others, to promote their agenda.
Not trying to start anything, it's just better to be informed of this stuff than uninformed. There are plenty of researchers out there that specialise in Earth-Sun connections, but Zharkova is not one of them, and the GWPF is not a respectable nor scientific group.

Still an interesting watch for anyone interested in the sun. Will not take long to prove her wrong or right

I was just about to post this clip. what do people think? it does make you stop and think, very interesting and like you say time will tell and in the not so distant future

I think that it's an interesting view on things and, as with many aspects of the solar cycle and the implications to us on the earth, there is much to take note of and learn from. In my eyes we can only truly be accurate with hindsight, but when theories are either proven correct or incorrect this adds to the pool of knowledge and helps improve forecasts in the future.

Discount nothing until it is proven to be a failed theory!

Exactly my thoughts. Although most of us like a cold snowy winter I think everyone will hope she is wrong!
