(ETH) – Several days ago End Time Headlines shared a story that was originally sourced from the New York Post that originated from the Sun-News publication who claimed that “The sun has gone into ‘lockdown’ which could cause freezing weather, earthquakes, and famine, say scientists. Nasa scientists fear it could be a repeat of the Dalton Minimum, which happened between 1790 and 1830 — leading to periods of brutal cold, crop loss, famine, and powerful volcanic eruptions.”
The story has since then been fact-checked to be proven to contradict or be unsupported by scientific evidence. According to the NOAA., While the Sun varies in energy output in approximately 11-year cycles, this cycle has little effect on Earth’s climate, particularly compared to global warming caused by greenhouse gas emissions.
The claim “Nasa scientists fear it could be a repeat of the Dalton Minimum, which happened between 1790 and 1830 — leading to periods of brutal cold, crop loss, famine, and powerful volcanic eruptions,” is unsupported and contrasts with scientific evidence showing no relationship between low solar activity and Earth’s climate The latest sun cycle forecast data shows a solar minimum occurring this year, but there is no evidence of a prolonged “grand minimum” occurring.
