This article is one of a continuing series on the impacts of Solar Cycle 24 (2009-2020).
On May 19, 2009, record low temperatures were recorded in 28 states, more than half the states in the United States of America. Many of these record low temperatures are the lowest in 100 years, and some the lowest in 115 years. Iceagenow.com, a web portal tracking global temperatures reports, “If there had been record warmth in 28 states, your would have seen ‘we're-causing-global-warming’ headlines plastered across the front page of almostevery newspaper in the country, and TV hosts would have gleefully announced the dire news. . . . But had you even heard about this?”
NOAA’s full report on these locations and record low temperatures is set out at the end of this Examiner.com article.
In an April 2, 2009 article, retired U.S. Navy physicist and engineer James A. Marusek writes: “The sun has gone very quiet as it transitions to Solar Cycle 24…. We are now at a crossroad. Two paths lie before us. Both are marked with a signpost that reads “Danger”! Down one path lies monstrous solar storms. Down the other path lies several decades of crushing cold temperatures and global famine.” “A quiet sun will cause temperatures globally to take a nose-dive. We will experience temperatures that we have not seen in over 200 years, during the time of the early pioneers.
On April 1, 2009 Examiner.com also reported that a January 2009 National Academy of Sciences reported that a repetition of the 1859 Carrington solar flares event during the solar maximum (2012-13) would destroy the high-power electrical energy grid, and cause millions of deaths and $4 trillion damages in the U.S. alone.
To listen to solar science experts, humanity is poised between a Scylla of potential solar collapse by solar flares and a Charibdis of ‘crushing cold temperatures and global famine during solar cycle 24 (2009 – 2020) – both alternative scenarios carrying the risk of global pandemics, and, according to Marusek, “cosmic rays that can lead to genetic mutations and evolutionary leaps.”
In its series on solar cycle 24, Examiner.com has documented the risks of 2012-13 solar flares. We now begin to document the risks of a quiet sun – or as one Canadian newspaper reports: “Forget global warming: Welcome to the new Ice Age”
Forget global warming, welcome to the new ice age
Canadian journalist Lorne Gunter writes in February 2009: “According to Robert Toggweiler of the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory at Princeton University and Joellen Russell, assistant professor of biogeochemical dynamics at the University of Arizona -- two prominent climate modellers -- the computer models that show polar ice-melt cooling the oceans, stopping the circulation of warm equatorial water to northern latitudes and triggering another Ice Age (a la the movie The Day After Tomorrow) are all wrong.
“’We missed what was right in front of our eyes,’ says Prof. Russell. It's not ice melt but rather wind circulation that drives ocean currents northward from the tropics. Climate models until now have not properly accounted for the wind's effects on ocean circulation, so researchers have compensated by over-emphasizing the role of manmade warming on polar ice melt.
“But when Profs. Toggweiler and Russell rejigged their model to include the 40-year cycle of winds away from the equator (then back towards it again), the role of ocean currents bringing warm southern waters to the north was obvious in the current Arctic warming.”
Gunter observes, “The last time the sun was this inactive, Earth suffered the Little Ice Age that lasted about five centuries and ended in 1850. Crops failed through killer frosts and drought. Famine, plague and war were widespread. Harbours froze, so did rivers, and trade ceased.”
Crushing cold temperatures and global famine
The International Journal of Inactivism criticizes former U.S. Navy nuclear engineer James A. Marusek, (who is, the Journal says “… guess what… yet another nuclear scientist! (sploosh)” in an article citing Marusek as one of the signatories of a Cato Institute petition against global warming regulation. The Journal states, “The global warming ‘skeptics’ are at it again. RealClimate reported that the neoliberal Cato ‘Institute’ was spamming climate scientists in order to get signatures for its petition against global warming regulation. And now that the petition’s published, we have the International Climate ‘Science’ Coalition claiming that the petition was signed by “over 100 climate scientists”. One of these signatories it cites is Marusek, no climate scientist but a nuclear engineer.
Marusek’s April 2, 2009 paper on the possible climatic impacts of our currently quiet sun is drawing increased positive, public attention.

We are reprinting Marusek’s article here at Examiner.com in its entirety, to allow you our readers to decide for yourself – regardless of your political stance on global warming regulation - his observation that in solar cycle 24 (2009-2020) we may be facing a period of harsh planetary cold and global famine. (Marusek’s views on global warming are summarized here.)
There are two paths ahead; each marked with a “Danger” signpost
