Solar Cycle 24 is on its way to a “minimum” . That Minimum will probably be in late 2019 or early 2020. The video illustrates several issues that are newsworthy.
- Global Temperature measurements made by satellites are often consider the “gold standard”. Two organizations make and report their interpretation of these measurements. The UAH and RSS organizations have typically reported very nearly the same temperatures but separation of the values occurred with RSS now giving higher readings. A major part of the separation is based how to correct for the drag that these satellites encounter as the circle above the Earth.
- And a small point. When the narrator says that Cycle 24 Sunspots were “relatively high” he is comparing the Sunspot level now. However, it might cause some people to think that he means as opposed to other Solar Cycles–which by and large is not true.
