A periodic solar event called a “Grand Solar Minimum” has started in 2020 and will probably last until 2070.
During this period, the sun’s magnetic field is weak, allowing extra cosmic rays into the solar system. All in all, we will enter a cooler time period… And this cold spell may last up to 50 years…
During a solar minimum, and particularly, a Grand Solar Minimum, more cosmic rays (CRs) enter Earth’s atmosphere.
These particles act as cloud nuclei by ionization and propagate low level cloud formation.
Some cosmic rays may reach the Earth’s surface and even penetrate it, increasing the intensity and numbers of:
🔴 Storm, hurricane, cyclone, typhoon,
🔴 Snowstorms and blizzards,
🔴 Flooding and flash floods,
🔴 Global cooling,
🔴 Lightning, other lightning events
🔴 Unprecedented solar flares
Grand Solar Minima and their related cooler phases are historically linked to drought, heat waves and wildfires due to extreme jet stream disturbances.
During the Little Ice Age, temperatures across the Northern Hemisphere declined by only 0.6°C (1.1°F) relative to the average temperature between 1000 and 2000 CE, but brutal frost and snow events led to devastating crop failures.
A Grand Solar Minimum occurs approximately every 200 years. The last notable event was the Dalton Minimum c. 1790 – 1820, which was followed by the end of the Little Ice Age, the 2nd Industrial Revolution, unprecedented demographic increase and the beginning of the modern global warming trend (which began c. 1850 and lasted until c. 2000).
