Here is a selection of links (using the PDF download file) to stories from the ClimateDepot.Com web site by Marc Morano. They illustrate that there is a continuation of a long cold winter in parts of our world.
Some would say that it's just a coincidence that these locations have had a prolonged winter at the same time our Sun has had a very long "Quiet" period between the end of Solar Cycle 23 and the start of Solar Cycle 24.
I for one don't believe in coincidences, and what you read in these stories today will be more common in the future as our world continues to cool down as we head into Low Solar Activity from a period of 50-60 years of High Activity.
In the last "Quiet" Sun period from 100 years ago, the temperature fall was not as noticeable as of today, and that was because the world had NOT been through the highest recorded period of Solar Activity since the Medieval warming period.
