Just a heads up for those that may not know This disease has always made me colder. I hate cold so this is relevant. This is why I moved to Florida. I like warmth. Over the longer term, the earth will get colder. Earth is going into a Grand Solar Minimum. The last Meander one that occurred happened in 1645 to 1715 period. The Dalton Minimum was in 1800s. We are on the doorstep of another Solar Minimum. The latest prediction models have said there is a 97% chance earth will enter into that by 2030s. I'm pretty sure that event has just arrived. Make no mistake about it, the Sun has the greatest influence on weather events on earth. Another thing to keep a watch on is earths magnetic fields. They are weakening more rapidly and this is what causes the magnetic poles to shift. They were shifting at a rate of 5% per century. In the last 10 years, they shifted another 5%. Earths magnetic poles will eventually flip over time. Even the Suns magnetic poles shifts every 22-24 years. Nobody knows how fast this shift will occur on earth but researchers say these can happen much more quickly than people realize. The implications of this is that the ionosphere will likely attract more hydrogen ions from solar winds as the magnetic field weakens. Earth will release more oxygen into the ionosphere. Through some unknown process, this may create more water by combining. May be the reason water is plentiful in the solar system. We could have increased chance of an Arkstorm event. Earth's weather is not only determined by the Sun but where it is in the milky way galaxy. The connecting mechanism between both are cosmic rays. The more active the Sun is, the more earth is shielded from cosmic rays. With less Sun activity, those cosmic rays will get through to the lower atmosphere. The clouds most effected are the lower clouds. With more cosmic ray particles, the more clouds cover that will get formed in atmosphere. This will cause more heat to be reflected back into space making earth colder. Cosmic particles come from the milky way galaxy. The more particles bombarding earth, the higher the temperature of earth. So if it was traveling through an arm of the galaxy, we'd be a more warmer climate all over. Currently we are traveling past the spiral arm where there is less cosmic rays so earth will stay cooler. This is not relevant for your lives but over the next ten thousand years, we will be traveling thru a great void in the galaxy. BTW The Sun is like an inverse Faraday motor or transistor driven by Birkeland currents which interconnect the entire galaxy. There will be higher earthquake and volcano risks also. Dr John Casey wrote a book called the Dark Winter. In it, he says earthquake risk will become extremely high in the next phase of the Grand Solar Minimum. His group has sent out warnings to the national and state government. He indicated to FEMA that the high risk earthquake period will last from 2017-2038. The most high risk areas seem to be the west coast especially california, madrid fault, charleston south carolina, hawaii and alaska from the map i'm looking at. Probably that earhquake everyone has been waiting for in california will strike. Climate change on earth is real but it is primarily a natural event and the Sun is the primary driver of it. We know this because climate change is happening on other planets in the solar system and much more than earth so entire solar system being effected by solar events. Earth will have longer term cycles also. Earth climate has always and will always be changing in the future no matter what we do as humans. Expect wild weather and other things for decades to come.
