Thread on Mag Flux Weakening to the point where Sun Spots may be history.
I saw that thread earlier and it was interesting. I'm not sure about them not coming back though. I think "cycles" are much more likely as we're all familiar with all sorts of cycles in nature. This idea of this not being a cycle but a minimum that we can't recover from ... I don't know about that one... :-)
Everyone misses the point of this story.
You have to have a field strength of 1500 to have sun spots, below that it can’t form.
Regardless of where we were in the cycle, it has been going down steadily.
It is possible it is an unknown cycle, but it isn’t tied to the sun spot cycle itself.
This is new. It could indicate a new ice age is starting.
