Are they referring to the hole in a bottle of Corona? That's called the opening, you need it to get the beer out.

A coronal hole that big and this early in the solar cycle? Welcome to another Dalton Minimum, folks.

Good job, pappy.

I just read the wikipedia article on that. They note a rise in volcanism, and I may not have the best perspective, but it seems like volcanoes have been a little more active recently.

The question of increasing volcanism is not at all settled. See this short synopsis from Oregon State University volcano center. That said, large eruptions that pump gigatons of aerosols into the atmosphere can and do have sharp short and medium term impacts on regional and even global climate. See the Year Without a Summer.

I know there's no real reason to be afraid of this, but the less rational part of my brain is shouting, "That huge powerful thing that we depend upon is doing weird shiat on a mind bending-ly massive scale. Panic. Panic now!"

Which also just happened to occur in the middle of the Dalton Minimum. Interesting theory. Personally, I think there's more and less to global warming than us, but I know things were a bit cooler for a while after Iceland's volcano went nuts.

I live in Los Angeles, so a year without a summer would actually be kind of nice.

We probably are not in for another true Dalton Minimum, but we may well see a roll-back in global temperatures for the next few decades. Here's why...the sun has been getting quieter in a manner similar to what led into the Dalton.

ncwatch.typepad.com
We're further along in Cycle 24 now, and it peaked at about 60, compared to about 50 for Cycle 5. Here's the current NASA graph...

solarscience.msfc.nasa.gov
But Cycle 24's apparent peak is only about half that of typical solar cycles from the second half of the 20th century (see Cycle 23 in the graph). That is going to mean lower temperatures for the next few decades if we follow patterns seen over the past several centuries.

I'm sure this is somehow our fault.
