While a significant number of people and world leaders are concerned about global warming, a renowned solar physicist has come up with a theory that is entirely contradictory.

Professor Valentina Zharkova, a solar physicist at the UK’s Northumbria University, claims that the earth is in fact not warming up, but cooling down. She has been conducting extensive research on sunspots – ominously cooler regions of the sun’s surface characterized by intense magnetic activity – pivotal in influencing climate patterns. According to some researchers, the current increase in global temperatures is a result of increased sunspot activity rather than the emission of greenhouse gasses.

Earth is facing the prospect of a ‘mini ice age’

According to Professor Zharkova, sunspot activity is likely to fall – similarly to what took place during the Maunder Minimum or “The Little Ice Age.” This will culminate in drastic drops in temperature and more winter-like conditions. Zharkova observed that solar activity had a significant influence on past climate trends.

During the “Little Ice Age” that lasted close to two centuries, sunspot activity was low, and temperatures plunged throughout the Northern Hemisphere. Winters were more pronounced, and the summers were unconvincing at best.
