#1 the Mauder minimum was a severe dearth of solar activity coincided with the little ice age

there really is no reason to expect our 21st century minimum to be as severe - it could be like the Dalton minimum in the early 19th century

#2 Well just re-elect obama and you can have a complete burn up and drought and no water, and famine, and pestilence and then maybe the sun will black hole sun on you and show you mercy before all your Family becomes starving animals like every other democrat paradise.

Better to go quick, you know.

#5 What if we release tons of freon into the atmosphere and create a huge hole in the ozone layer? Hopefully that would allow more heat from the sun to reach earth.

#6 the ozone in the stratosphere adsorbs and re-radiates the UV which is a small percentage of the Sun's radiation

decreasing stratospheric ozone might create a small decrease in temperature in the polar areas

outside the polar areas, there are offsetting effects of reduced stratospheric ozone some effects increase ground temps, some decrease, its a complicated question for which we don't really have a good quantitative answer because other issues, like CO2, cloudiness, El Nino, etc. greatly outweigh the ozone issue in terms of temperature

#7 It's better to have "Fallen Angels" than "Footfall" or "Lucifer's Hammer"!

#11 The Dalton Minimum was a period of low sunspot count, representing low solar activity, named after the English meteorologist John Dalton, lasting from about 1796 to 1820 which corresponds with solar cycle 4 to solar cycle 7.

Recall that Napolean decided to invade Russia in 1812 which is right about in the middle. I guess Napoleon didn't own a Farmer's Almanac.

#12 Recall that the last half of the 20th century saw 5 Solar grand maximums in a row.
