to "hibernate" during
its next cycle in 2020...
The prediction is based on,
According to the article,
the drop in output could initiate climate effects comparable to the
Maunder Minimum between 1645 and 1715.
For example, attributing to internal heating the unexpected "weather patterns" recently discovered below the photosphere is like ascribing Earth's weather patterns to heat escaping from within the Earth.
The possibility that
weather systems may be externally electrically powered has not
occurred to investigators.
Stars are electromagnetic
in nature, responding to the laws of plasma physics and
electric circuits and not those of gas dynamics or
The Sun is "plugged-in" to a galactic power source and behaves like an electric motor and electric light.
Electric stars are not born from cold nebular clouds.
The electric currents induce their own encircling magnetic field, which "pinches" the currents to flow in filaments.
Photographs of plasma in the laboratory show those currents forming twisted filament pairs called "Birkeland currents."
The resulting plasmoids
form spinning electrical discharges that glow first as red stars,
then "switch discharge modes" into yellow stars, some intensifying
into brilliant ultraviolet arcs, driven externally by the Birkeland
currents that created them.
