Benny Peiser introduces Valentina Zharkova at https://www.thegwpf.org/professor-valentina-zharkova-the-solar-magnetic-… …. in a talk (watch the video) on how the solar magnetic field may affect climate on the earth. She begins by telling us that sun spots are dark and cooler regions on the surface of the Sun. Basically, she is predicting a solar minumum and cool weather between 2020 and 2055. Is that one in the eye for the alarmists – or a case of alarmism at the opposite end of the spectrum (cooling instead of warming). The video is also available at https://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2018/11/05/valentina-zharkova-incorporat… … which is derived from near the end of the video when Tall Bloke gets to ask the first question from the audience. Later, Piers Corbyn chips in. What with Benny Peiser as convenor of what looks like a well attended talk it is worth watching from an SIS point of view.
