Since 2002 sunspot activity has drastically dropped off, with only two sunspots visible at this time, and those are about to rotate out of sight. NASA's predictions for solar activity have continually decreased, and it now seems this could be the greatest minimum we have seen since the Dalton Minimum of the early 1800s/late 1700s.



Here's the link to the latest graph of the sunspot cycle:

Any thoughts on this phenomenom, and could it change our climate towards colder, at least for a time?

"Who hath divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder; to cause it to rain on the earth, where no man is; on the wilderness, wherein there is no man; to satisfy the desolate and waste ground; and to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth? Hath the rain a father? or who hath begotten the drops of dew? Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it? The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen."
-Job 38:25-30
