Apparently we are approaching a Maunder Minimum.
The denialists will have a field-day if this happens: "Global Warming? Rubbish!"
The Sun - That well know Science Journal...
CHILL IN THE AIR Earth about to enter 30-YEAR ‘Mini Ice Age’ with -50C temperatures in coldest regions, scientists warn

EARTH could face frosty weather and biting snow storms over the next 30 years as an ominous "solar minimum" grips the planet, a scientist has warned.
The cold snaps – caused by the Sun entering a natural "hibernation" – threaten to trigger food shortages as temperatures slump across the planet, experts say.
Earth is bracing for a solar minimum: a quiet period in which the Sun fires less energy – or, heat – at our planet than usual.
According to Nasa, the Sun will reach its lowest activity in over 200 years in 2020.
This could cause average temperatures to drop as much as 1C in a cold spell lasting 12 months, according to Northumbria University expert Valentina Zharkova.
That might not sound like much, but a whole degree is very significant for global average temperatures.
