Oddly, summers were not much different, and much of the rest of the planet had normal winters (in North America winters were colder than normal, but not as bad as in Europe).At the same time, the Sun was experiencing a 75-year long period later called The Maunder Minimum: few or no sunspots were to be found on the face of the Sun. And in fact, that’s the basis for this new claim that we might be entering an ice age: if no magnetic activity from the Sun once coincided with a cooling here on Earth, might it not do so again?The strength and complexity of the solar field governs a lot of the surface activity, including sunspots, solar flares, prominences, and coronal mass ejections.Right now, in 2011, we’ve just left a period of an extended minimum, and the next max is due in late 2013 and early 2014.But when you look at the numbers, again, it’s not so simple.

Jet versus the Volcano As it happens, there were some big volcanic eruptions around the time of the Little Ice Age. Sunspots and volcanoes wouldn’t hit one region that hard without doing something to the rest of the planet. It varies a lot season to season and year to year, and it can affect regional weather quite strongly.

It’s the core of the "oncoming ice age" claim, so you should read it.

I’ll note right off the bat that not everyone agrees with these findings.

But scientists studying the Sun have seen three independent lines of reasoning indicating that the next rise to the solar peak, in 2022 or so, may be delayed or even not occur at all.

I wrote about this in an earlier post, so you can get the details there.
