On Thursday solar cycle 23 sunspot group S740 re-emerged near S08W64. Today NOAA/SWPC assigned it #10116. Solar cycle 23 is now 13 years long from first spot to present one, an extension of the already record long solar cycle!!! 

Besides space plasma physics I also have education in paleoclimatology, meteorology and oceanography. Having said that I am becoming seriously concerned that we are really headed for a second "Dalton Minimum" and it's attendant global cooling for a period of 20-30 years. 

Another "Dalton Minimum" will put quite a strain on resources such as food and petroleum.
