Sooner, or later, your prediction of the future is going to be compared to the present. Here is an original prediction and (above) the revised prediction of Solar Cycle 24 Sunspot Predictions. The first
comes from October 2005 (sorry for the lousy resolution), not quite 3 years ago. It says that there should have been 60 Cycle 24 sunspots by now. There has been only one. Even earlier
, the scientists were predicting a very active Cycle 24. And it could still happen, however, as you can see from the most recent NCAR graph, the scientists predicting just 1/50th of a century into the future, have had to revise the predictions seriously. We deniers of the validity of dire predictions of
Climate Change over the 21st Century (caused primarily by anthropogenic greenhouse gasses) take some solace from the fact that the predictors of the sun's 'weather' can't get it right mere months after their initial predictions. I predict the climate speculators will be equally inept.
Anyone care to predict I will be wrong?
