On the other hand, you would do well to enjoy  whatever sunspots we have 
while we have them. (And be thankful if you were able  to be in CQWW last 

There is a body of research out there that says  there may be no sunspots 
after  2015.


Googling  on "Livingston and Penn" will get other links to this  research.

Well, we've regressed to the same point  as we were a year ago with
pretty much nothing indicating a rebound. It was  good for a while, but
certainly not long enough to be a peak. The peak in  ~1970 was not very
tall, but at least it lasted. My gut is that it will come  back (but then
again I've never been much of a gambler), and the smoothed SSN  will be
the most ridiculous -looking smoothed SSN of our lifetimes. Next peak  we
can say "you kids have no idea how bad we had it..."
