In the United States, the jet stream usually has a pattern similar to the one shown above. The only difference between that setup and the jet stream pattern we see during the Maunder Minimum is the fact that the jet stream tends to expand further southward into Louisiana, Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida. Since 2014, we have seen a lot of this setup.
During a Grand Solar Minimum, we tend to see a global temperature pattern similar to the one shown below. The image below represents the temperature pattern observed during the Maunder Minimum (1600-1850).
Due to solar output and shifts in the Earth’s poles and magnetic field, we tend to see a warmer than normal Alaska, a warmer Bering Sea, a warmer North Atlantic Ocean, Southern tip of Greenland, and we also tend to see a slightly warmer than normal Arctic. Overall, though, the world is about 1°C to 2°C colder than today.
The most noticeable cold spots where temperatures were between 0.35°C to 0.7°C colder than normal were in Central and Eastern Canada, the Eastern 2/3 of the United States, Morocco, Siberia, Germany, and Denmark. Let’s compare that to what we have been recently seeing.
This temperature setup that we are currently seeing lines up almost perfectly with a typical Grand Solar Minimum setup.
As the sun changes cycles, we can expect an even clearer depiction of the temperature anomalies matching up.
Climate science is a simple science, the climate is influenced mostly by the sun, and other small things such as gravitational pulls, wind patterns and ocean circulation. HUMANS are NOT a driver of climate. Sorry Al Gore.
