Last week it was six degrees. Today it was sixty degrees. Pretty extreme. Our weather depends on the star that we are electrically connected to. It's weather depends on the galaxy it is electrically connected to. The solar electrical input has been weakening for a while. It might get cold and stay that way for a long time. It's a cyclical process.
It's easy to track the weather on the sun these days. NASA has a website that does just that called SOHO. The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory. Click here to go there. Most of their conclusions are utter nonsense but the data is real as well as the viewing capability it provides.
It's virtually real-time observation of the sun. If you want to know whats happening on Earth you need to know whats happening on the sun.
