The assumption of American scientists that solar activity in the mid-century will be reduced significantly, said the chief researcher of the laboratory of x-ray astronomy of the Sun Lebedev physical Institute Sergey Bogachev. In his opinion, so far evidence in favour of such version is not enough, and the trend is the opposite.
Earlier, scientists from the University of California in San Diego expressed the opinion that by the middle of the XXI century solar activity will decline significantly, resulting in the Orb for quite some time would be worse to warm the planet. However, American experts said that this time even if the Sun will really become bright, it will only lead to slowing the pace of global warming. Previously, some scientists, speaking in favor of such a scenario, have suggested that the Earth is still somewhat colder.
Often experts are predicting a considerable decline in solar activity, remind about the period from 1645 to 1715 known as the Maunder Minimum. It was characterized by a long-term decrease in the number of sunspots, and cold. Some experts tend to link these events together, while others suggest that more likely it was a coincidence.
