Is the Sun heading towards a Maunder Minimum? http://science.nasa.gov/headlines/y2006/10may_longrange.htm The following is an excerpt from the above link: The sun's "Great Conveyor Belt" And from the next link, it appears there was a failed solar magnetic field reversal. http://science.nasa.gov/headlines/y2006/15aug_backwards.htm Incidentally, Solar Activity in the 20th century was the highest in 8,000 years: http://cc.oulu.fi/~usoskin/personal/nature02995.pdf There was a Doubling of the Sun’s Coronal Magnetic Field in the last 100 years. http://www.nature.com/nature/journal.../399437a0.html And based on proxy data, the sun appears to vary cyclically. http://www.essc.psu.edu/essc_web/seminars/spring2006/Mar1/Bond et al 2001.pdf Has anyone reviewed the results from the Wilson H-K study, where astronomers examined 70 solar like stars, to determine if stars varied cyclically?
