The Sherrick winter

The famous, "year with out a Summer," was during the Dalton Minimum. There was also a large Volcanic Eruption to compound the cooling for a temporary period.
We are heading into another such minimum. During these minimums there are large measured changes in the Sun's and the Earth's magnetic fields. It is theorized (but not proven) that because of that volcanic activity increases. It is well known that volcanic eruptions emit large amounts of Sulfur Dioxide which accentuates Global Cooling.
So, we may be in for quite a sleigh ride for the next several decades. We will just have to wait and see.

Did the Dalton Minimum occur around the same time Krakatoa erupted?

A paper published today in Climate of the Past finds the low solar activity during the Dalton Minimum from 1780-1840


https://nextgrandminimum.wordpress.com/ ... ry/dalton/

The eruption of the volcano at Krakatoa in the western Pacific Ocean in August 1883

The dust from Mount Tambora, which had erupted in early April 1815, had shrouded the globe. And with sunlight blocked, 1816 did not have a normal summer.

Apparently not.

We woke up to 50 degrees here this morning (thermometer on the shed out back), with some of the local 'Weather Underground' backyard online weather stations reading as low as 46 within 4 miles of here. Burr.

This is what I've been saying for years. When the earth is done with us, it will shake us off. There is nothing we are doing that is having this huge effect on the planet. I believe that we are "contributing" but it's like .00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001%.

Yes, it is a good movie.

Everytime I watch one of William's You Tube video's it reminds me of that movie.
