Ice Age of the dimming Sun in 30 years
The theory that the Sun is a constant factor in the climate equation on Earth, is overturned by evidence gleamed from the big ice-coring projects, which after their completion in the 2003-2005 timeframe gave us a highly detailed view into the climate history of our planet during the last Ice Age glaciation cycle.
We see evidence of enormous climate fluctuations having occurred. The evidence is preserved in ice samples dating back in time 120,000 years. We see in the ice cores evidence of climate fluctuations ranging upwards to 40-times the cooling that had been experienced in the Little Ice Age in the 1600s. These discovered enormous, and extremely-fast rising climate fluctuations, stand as evidence that the Sun is mostly inactive during the long 90,000-years glaciation period, but recovers briefly to its active state in 1,470-year intervals. These recovery periods that are typically of short duration, which may be seen as miniature interglacial events, may have prevented the Earth from freezing up completely. Nevertheless, the potential for the Sun to go inactive, with 70% less radiated energy being received on Earth, poses immense challenges for agriculture under the resulting dimmer Sun.
