Always something to worry about.

Space Weather reports:

Could northern summer 2019 go down in history as “the summer without sunspots”? From June 21st until Sept 22nd, the sun was blank more than 89% of the time.

During the entire season only 6 tiny sunspots briefly appeared, often fading so quickly that readers would complain to Spaceweather.com, “you’ve labeled a sunspot that doesn’t exist!” (No, it just disappeared.) Not a single significant solar flare was detected during this period of extreme quiet.

This is a sign that Solar Minimum is underway and probably near its deepest point.

The last Solar Maximum was ‘way down too . Keep in mind, the Carrington Event of 1859 occurred at Solar Minimum .

Solar Minimum:  Lower energy output from the Sun.  During other historical Solar Minimums, epic levels of human deaths occurred.

Carrington Event:  The last event occurred during a time when the human race wasn’t using any electronics and the most important electrical device was the Telegraph.  And telegraph keys welded themselves shut from the effects of the event.  Today a similar, equal event would kill at least two billion humans by killing our infrastructure.
