  1. I got to find it, there was a article where they said the Grand Solar Minimum wouldn’t necessarily result in a ice age or mini ice age because of man made global warming. It also emphasized other ice ages had a volcanic event if I remember correctly and the article pointed out there wasn’t any volcanic activity.

    I’m pretty sure I’m remembering the article correctly. I’ll try to find it and post a link under this post or another if something new pops up. I remember thinking how stupid they’ll look once the next 5 years pans out. I don’t think a warming period is on the horizon.

  2. Nicaraguan San Cristobal volcano erupted at 19:26 UTC on March 9, 2021, blanketing the city of Chinandega and surrounding communities in ash.

    Heavy ash emission lasted approximately 30 minutes, accompanied by deep rumbling. AFP reported cars had to switch on headlights as everything went dark.

    Ashfall was reported as far as 17 km (10.5 miles) from the volcano.
