Earth facing a mini-Ice Age 'within ten years' due to rare drop in sunspot activity

A decrease in global warming might result in the years after the approximate time when sunspots are expected to disappear for years, maybe even decades.

Galileo's tracking of sunspot activity in 1612 showed the rotation of the sun for the first time - GIF on Imgur

Galileo didn’t know it at the time, but his observations of sunspot activity in 1612 were tailor-made for the animated GIF! He demonstrated that sunspots can be tracked across the disk of the sun as.
