It makes a very important point, in that SC25 will have one of the lowest counts of Sunspots in 200-300 years! This could be the same level of Sunspots that started the Dalton Minimum in 1790. With a forecast like that, I hope you see why I want to pass on this information, it is kinda important!

May 10, 2006: The Sun's Great Conveyor Belt has slowed to a record-low crawl, according to research by NASA solar physicist David Hathaway. "It's off the bottom of the charts," he says. "This has important repercussions for future solar activity."

Article continues below this advert:

The Great Conveyor Belt is a massive circulating current of fire (hot plasma) within the Sun. It has two branches, north and south, each taking about 40 years to perform one complete circuit. Researchers believe the turning of the belt controls the sunspot cycle, and that's why the slowdown is important.

One thing I can pass on to you, in layman terms an active Sun is a healthy Sun, a non-active or calm sun is bad news!

Why is it bad news? The first point to remember is that a long term period of non activity on the Sun has meant a cooler climate for the Earth. The next and the most important point is that, when the Sun is in this state of "hibernation" it is more likely that our planet has more volcanic and earthquake activity.
