Approaching 'Solar Minimum' Will Draw Sun Spot Activity To Low Point

Approaching 'Solar Minimum' Will Draw Sun Spot Activity To Low Point:
"Sun spot activity is argued to be the most important factor in earth’s climate, and lack of spots means global cooling. 
Since global warming has morphed into a religion, advocates will not recant their belief that man-made global warming will destroy the earth. ⁃ TN Editor
Image result for Solar MinimumThe sun is heading into a period known as solar minimum, during which activity at the surface will ‘change form.’
In this time, certain types of activity, such as sunspots and solar flares will drop – but, it’s also expected to bring the development of long-lived phenomena including coronal holes.
According to NASA, solar minimum could also enhance the effects of space weather, potentially disrupting communications and navigation systems, and even causing space junk to ‘hang around.’
The sun follows roughly an 11-year cycle.
While sunspots were relatively high back in 2014, they’re now heading toward a low point expected in 2019-2020, according to NASA.
‘This is called solar minimum,’ said Dean Pesnell of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD.
‘And it’s a regular part of the sunspot cycle.’..."
