    If they are right (maybe a big if, I don't know) then it could be catastrophic for our modern day world. Mass starvation maybe.
    It would far outweigh the effects of temperature rises from climate change from man made global warming.
    It is known that the cold period in the 1700s coincided with the Maunder Minimum but as far as I am aware there has been no proof of any connection between the two, it is just theory at present.

    Then the rain started. Wipers on full speed could barely cope at times.

    Very happy to get home in one piece.

    Could be an album cover from the 1970s that.
