Researchers claim that solar activity will decrease around the year 2030 by 60 percent. The predictions are deemed to be 97 percent accurate as scientists have been combining both magnetic waves together and have been comparing their results to real data for the current solar cycle. According to the researchers behind this dreadful prediction, there are magnetic waves in the sun’s interior which fluctuate between sun’s northern and southern hemispheres. This results in various solar conditions over a period of 10 to 12 years which can help scientists determine probable courses of evolution in sun activities.
If the sun really causes this “mini ice age” to arrive on Earth, then we are all in for some big climate changes. Winters would be so cold that even big rivers will freeze over very quick. The last time planet Earth was hit by a similar low solar activity was 300 years ago, during the Maunder Minimum(prolonged sunspot minimum). This lasted from 1645 to 1715.
