We are Now Tipping into a “Landsheidt Minimum” Mini Iceage. Earth Climate Predictions Using NASA Solar Sunspot Tracking, and Works by the late Theodor Landsheidt, and the Late Carl Smith with Geoff Sharp Contributions


We are quickly entering a period of deadly cold on Planet Earth.  NASA’s own Sunspot Tracking page makes specific note of the similarity between today’s declining Sunspot activity and a similar event the lasted from the year 1645 to the year 1715 called the “Maunder Minimum”.  This period in history is known for cold weather that made growing food difficult or impossible in Europe and North America. Disease and Famine and resulting Wars racked the planet.  Theodor Landscheidt was first to correlate these times with Solar Sunspot activity and El Nino/La Nina events to accurately predict temperatures in the Northern Half of the Earth.  Carl Smith and Geoff Sharp found the influence of the large planets Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Uranus on the Sun.  The gravity of these huge planets tug on the sun, influencing the Sunspot cycles. Together, Landscheidt, and Smith, and Sharp, predict we are entering into a mini ice age similar to the Maunder Minimum, that could last 30 years or more.

Evidence for this cooling has been provided by Calibrated Satellite temperature measurements of the entire Earth, something that NASA’s thermometers on the surface cannot do.  These satellite temperature measurements show a slight cooling that began in 2003, not the warming that NASA/NOAA claims from surface thermometers they adjust to make warming appear.  If the Landscheidt predictions are correct, we are tipping into a period of deadly cooling, not uncomfortable warming as predicted by the IPCC International Panel on Climate Change at the United Nations.  They are not scientists.  They are Politicians who pay scientists.  They are getting what they pay for.  They are getting more predictions of Global Warming.

As the real trend of cooling continues, we will need all the energy sources we can find to compensate, including renewables and non-renewables. Politics and science have teamed up in the past to predict future cold and warm periods. They have always been wrong because the scientific mechanism was not fully understood.  This includes the current “Global Warming” or “Climate Change” predictions.  Look back at them and see how many of their predictions have come true.  NONE of them have come true.  Decide then for yourself who to believe.

Now we finally have a scientific explanation for these warm and cool periods, and it does not seem to follow the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere.  Instead, CO2 follows the temperature changes with a delay of hundreds of years.  Today’s Global Warming theory has them backwards. Al Gore conveniently shifted the long term graphs to make it look the other way.  Check it.  The only time in recent history when warming followed CO2 was a coincidence from 1974 to 2003.  That was very convenient for Al Gore, a politician, not a scientist.  Before that (1950s and 1960s), and after that (2004 to now), temperatures went down while CO2 went up. NASA/NOAA Thermometer Records are wrong from 2003 to now, they are too hot.   NASA/NOAA adjusted their measured temperatures upward, showing a warming trend, by adjusting their own raw surface measurements that are very close to Satellite temperature measurements.  Why do they make these adjustments when their own raw data is confirmed by the satellites?  Ask them. NASA/NOAA also went back in time to adjust the past Thermometer records to make the past cooler than today.  Therefore, they continue to make claims of “The Hottest Year” each year.  There are other posts here on this site from other sources that clearly show this is true, including a simple presentation to Vladimir Putin from his scientists in 2004 making it very clear.  It also makes it very clear that the cost of trying to change the weather is infinite if you choose CO2 as the control knob.  It does not work.

Here is a link to that presentation:  http://iccfglobal.org/ppt/Illarionov-013004.html.ppt

The sunspots are directly correlated with temperature cycles on the Earth.  NASA themselves observed that this is true in the quote below.  The mechanism is not that the sun gets brighter or dimmer, but instead, the active sun blocks cosmic rays that make clouds.


The sun is in a declining cycle of activity right now, predicted by Landscheidt, Smith, and Sharp.  This means Cosmic rays are free to increase cloud cover on the Earth.  To see how all of this works, see another post on this site at:


We are being prepared for the opposite temperature trend than is truly happening for political and financial gain.  We will know for sure in the next few years, but the signs are already here.  Polar Ice caps are back to normal and growing.  Greenland is not melting. The Northwest Passage is closed.  Record Cold weather events are at least as frequent than Record Warm weather events.

NASA wrote: “Early records of sunspots indicate that the Sun went through a period of inactivity in the late 17th century. Very few sunspots were seen on the Sun from about 1645 to 1715 (38 kb JPEG image). Although the observations were not as extensive as in later years, the Sun was in fact well observed during this time and this lack of sunspots is well documented. This period of solar inactivity also corresponds to a climatic period called the “Little Ice Age” when rivers that are normally ice-free froze and snow fields remained year-round at lower altitudes. There is evidence that the Sun has had similar periods of inactivity in the more distant past. The connection between solar activity and terrestrial climate is an area of on-going research.”

Here is a link to that NASA page:


NASA has since become attached to the Political Bandwagon of Global Warming supposedly caused by CO2, caused by Humans.  The science for this could not be more incorrect.  NASA abandoned their statement above, their understanding of the relationship between the sun’s activity and Earthly temperatures because they did not understand how it works.  They observed that the sun’s brightness only varies slightly, perhaps 3%.  Because of the attraction towards blaming Humans for “Climate Change”, they abandoned the clear relationship between sunspots and Earth’s Temperature.  Instead, they attached themselves to the unproven theory that CO2 causes temperature changes, and they have tried to explain how the tiny amount of CO2 contributed by humans (.03% of the CO2 in the atmosphere) can make the tiny amount of CO2 itself (3% of the atmosphere) change the weather.  It sounds very unlikely, doesn’t it? It is clearly a political position, not a scientific one.  What more likely explanation could there be for the Earth’s temperature cycles?  We must go back to NASA’s own statement above on the direct correlation between the Sunspot count and periods of deep cold or warmth on Earth.

A Meteorologist named Theodor Landscheidt (Died 2004) predicted today’s decline in Solar Activity back in 1989, and successfully predicted the weather trends that have accompanied it.  His forecast is for a period of decades where Earth’s weather will be similar to what was seen in the “Maunder Minimum”.  It is becoming more common to refer to today’s low Solar Activity period as the “Landscheidt Minimum”.  Per Landscheidt, we are already tipping into a dramatic cooling period that will deepen rapidly.

Here is a link to a page with Theodor Landsheidt’s papers.  Note he successfully predicted recent El Nino and La Nina events.


Here is a link to a page by Geoff Sharp on the late Carl Smith’s research on the effects of the Planets tugging on the Sun. Carl’s observations, going back 6,000 years describe the empirical connection between the orbiting movement of the Planets and the Solar Activity as measured by Sunspots.

Building on Theodor Landsheidt’s work, Carl has demonstrated even greater accuracy than Landsheidt how the Sun’s activity may be explained and predicted.

Geoff Sharp has contributed, standing on the strong shoulders of Landsheidt and Smith to refine and demonstrate further the direct empirical relationship between planetary movement and the Sun’s activity, and the Earth’s climate.


What does this mean regarding the Earth’s weather in the future?  If Theodor and Carl were right about the pattern of Solar activity we can expect in the near future, then Landscheidt’s prediction of a mini ice age in the first half of the 21st century will come true.  There will be predictable effects on the Earth’s weather, including El Nino and La Nina ocean events and Global temperatures.  We can expect dangerous, even deadly cooling in the next fifteen years with deeper cold and longer winters.  The end will depend upon how fast the Sun recovers from the influences of the larger planets.

Here is a link to a blog with discussions on this subject, giving credit to Theodor Landsheidt for his accurate predictions in the past.


In 2004, for the Kyoto Convention, Putin saw this Powerpoint Presentation by Russian Scientists and Economists about CO2 Global Warming. See all the Charts and Graphs Presented Then and see if You Agree With Him Today.

In the Beginning, was the seminal meeting in Kyoto to pressure the industrialized nations of the world to do something about Human Caused Global Warming due to burning fossil fuels, as theorized by the IPCC.  The theory had not yet been proven by the test of time, but had been politicized by Al Gore’s Book and Film “Inconvenient Truth”  The resultant social and political environment urged industrialized nations to take dramatic action because, IF the IPCC was right, immediate action was required to prevent a climate apocalypse, or it would be impossible to stop later.

But what did non-politicized scientists and economists see when examining the facts?  Be sure to see ALL of the charts and graphs in this Russian presentation and then make up your own mind as if you were Putin:


Note: This online links to the Powerpoint presentation have been blocked off and on as of August 1, 2016.  If it doesn’t work, try again later. I was able to find the title page of the presentation, shown here. The presentation is so clear and definite showing that Humans cannot change the weather using CO2, and that the social and economic damages from trying to do the impossible are, of course, extreme without end.Kyoto Protocol and Russia Illarionov-013004html

Here is a link to the Guardian Article of May 19, 2004 with a summary. Below the link is the text of the article it links to:


“Leading Russian scientists told President Vladimir Putin yesterday that the Kyoto emissions treaty discriminates against Russia, would damage its economy and would not significantly reduce global warming, increasing the chance that the Kremlin will refuse to ratify the agreement.

Experts from the Russian Academy of Sciences submitted a report to the Kremlin containing their long-awaited assessment of the scientific virtues of the pact for Russia. The document, according to the Interfax news agency, said: “Its effectiveness in reducing the concentration of greenhouse gases in line with the framework convention on the climate change is low.”

The scientists added that global warming was occurring, but that to conclude that “the warming is occurring exclusively due to anthropogenic pollutants, namely, manmade emissions” was questionable.

They said the total benefit to Russia would be a small drop in the concentration of carbon dioxide in the air over the next 10 years, but the total cost of the pact’s emission-reduction measures would be “tens of trillions of dollars over a hundred years”.

The report said: “If Russia ratifies the Kyoto protocol, it would have to either reduce its economic growth or buy additional quotas on greenhouse emissions.” The scientists added that Russia’s extreme climate was not taken into account by the protocol.

The report, signed by a fierce Kyoto critic, Yuri Israel, will give Mr Putin the scientific justification he needs to kill off the treaty.

To come into effect, the 1997 protocol must be ratified by at least 55 countries which accounted for 55% of global greenhouse gas emissions in 1990. After the US and other key states rejected the pact, Russia’s ratification became key for it to come into effect.

Mr Putin has procrastinated over the decision for months, saying he will not sign anything while it remains against Russia’s national interests, yet apparently holding out for last minute concessions from the EU.

His key adviser, Andrei Illarionov, has repeatedly panned the treaty, saying it would amount to an “economic Auschwitz” for growth in Russia, where the Kremlin has ambitiously pledged to double GDP in 10 years.

On Friday, a Russia-EU summit in Moscow will see increased pressure for Russia to sign. Yet Mr Putin is thought to be torn between rejecting the treaty, which could ease Moscow’s frayed relations with Washington and remove perceived constraints on economic growth, and ratifying it, which would improve its standing with the EU, its new, expanding neighbour.

The US is responsible for 24% of the world’s carbon dioxide emissions, while Russia accounts for 17.4%. Moscow in any case faces a daunting task in meeting treaty requirements, given its legacy of polluting Soviet industries.

The EU, Japan and the rest of the developed world adopted the agreement more than three years ago.”

Annual “COP” fundraisers have put political and social pressure on world governments to continue with these agreements.  These United Nations fundraisers and their extortion funds THEM, and also gets commitments for internal spending that keeps lots of Scientists and Politicians employed.  “Green Energy” projects are subsidized regardless of economic damage to the economy of nations and the consequential higher cost of living for those least able to afford it as their energy bills leap up.  All of this is allowed to continue, as long as nobody challenges the basic assumption that humans and CO2 control the Earth’s Climate despite ample extensive evidence that it does not.

Putin and RUSSIA have been laughing at us since then. So has CHINA and INDIA, because they all saw the same information from their own Scientists and Economists. However,  Political, Social, and Economic extortion by the United Nations IPCC and the United States anti Fossil Fuel movement, has kept them in line… but not for long… as the real climate will “Trump” “Politicized Science”.  Of course, nobody will pay for these transgressions, and that is why they can do it.

We in the United States, and in Russia, and China and India and Europe, and in Australia, did not do independent analysis of the core theory of Human Caused CO2 Global Warming Climate Change… or did we?  The Emperor will soon be exposed as having no clothes, but surely he will not be embarassed.  Instead, he will claim, as usual, that “He knows better than we do what is good for us” despite the damage done.  Who is “He”? look to the United Nations, who created the IPCC, and conspired with the Politicized Scientists they employed, to grab centralized political, social, and economic power worldwide.  There is a touch of evil there. Beware, they will not give up their agenda.



All US Warming, And Almost Half Of The Data, Is Faked to MAKE a Trend

The details of how recent Global measurements prove Global Warming Climate Models are not working at all.

These results clearly demonstrate — 13 times in fact — that once just the El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) impacts on temperature data are accounted for by themselves, there is no “record setting” warming to be concerned about. In fact, there is no ENSO-Adjusted Warming at all. These natural ENSO impacts involve both changes in solar activity and the 1977 Pacific Shift.

Cosmic Rays are Larger Influence on Earth’s Climate than Humans by making Cloudiness Globally.

Scientists in India make it clear that cosmic Rays are a far bigger influence on Earth’s Climate than Humans.  Cosmic rays make clouds that reflect 90% of the Sun’s heating Radiation from their top surface.  Since The Earth is shielded from Cosmic Rays by the Sun’s Solar wind, an active Sun means a warm Earth and an Inactive Sun means a Cold cloudy Earth. It is not the very small variation in Solar Irradiance that does it. It is the large variation in solar mass ejections as measured by Sunspots that does it. This fooled IPCC climate models into discounting the Sun’s effect in favor of Carbon Dioxide. Also, When the Water cycle is included in Earth Climate models, the vast heat transfers from water changing states to Vapor or Ice dominate. The Water cycle was also left out of IPCC climate models as being “Too Complicated”.  This article and its references address the powerful effect of Cosmic Rays.


Media Finally Sees that We are Heading for Deadly Cold vs. Global Warming

The Media is finally seeing the truth about Global Warming… The SUN INDIRECTLY controls the Earth’s Climate, NOT Humans or Carbon Dioxide.  The Daily Mail is getting the scoop on the BIGGEST STORY OF THE CENTURY.  We are already tipping into a mini ice age that may last 30 to 50 years.  We have recently experienced days of no sunspots.  This happened in the 1600’s, and the Earth Cooled to Deadly Cold as it clouded over.  See other articles in Paullitely.com for all the details on how the Earth’s Climate is subject to the Sun’s activity, not Human Activity.

L.A. Times climate science denial article instead shows the Times clearly denying well established climate science

Florida is safe for a very, very long time…

Watts Up With That?

The L. A. Times published an article claiming that “Trump’s climate science denial clashes with the reality of rising seas in Florida


The article fails to address easily available and comprehensive NOAA tide gauge data updated through the year 2015 (http://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/sltrends/sltrends_us.htm) showing that the Florida coastline is experiencing no acceleration in coastal sea level rise and that the rate of coastal sea level rise there remains constant and consistent over more than 100 years of long term period tide gauge data measurements.

This long term steady rate of coastal sea level rise is documented at numerous locations around the state including Mayport, Fernandina Beach, Key West, St. Petersburg, Cedar Key, and Pensacola.







Climate alarmists have been falsely claiming for 3 decades now that coastal sea level rise is accelerating but NOAA tide gauge data demonstrates that this is not happening in Florida or anywhere else around…
