The Sun Has Just ‘Gone Blank’, will global warming be reversed?

Don’t be alarmed, but our sun has just ‘gone blank’ - with a total lack of sunspots leaving the surface like a snooker ball.

It’s part of the sun’s cycles - a sign that the ‘solar minimum’ is approaching - and some experts have suggested a new ‘mini ice age’ might be on the way.

Meteorology expert Paul Dorian of Vencore Weather says, ‘For the second time this month, the sun has gone completely blank.

‘The blank sun is a sign that the next solar minimum is approaching and there will be an increasing number of spotless days over the next few years.

‘At first, the blankness will stretch for just a few days at a time, then it’ll continue for weeks at a time, and finally it should last for months at a time when the sunspot cycle reaches its nadir. The next solar minimum phase is expected to take place around 2019 or 2020.’
