Spots? I Don't See No Dang Spots

A lot of spotless days have come and gone since the video was made.
At the risk of triggering a new sunspot by talking about it, I’ll cautiously mention that by GMT time midnight tomorrow, August 10th, we will possibly have a 30 day stretch of no sunspots at a time when cycle 24 has been forecast by many to be well underway.
Sun spots are kind of like the weather. Every one talks about them. No one does anything about them.

In any case the sun, like the climate, is not following earlier predictions.

You can read more about the number of spotless days at the link provided. What does it mean in terms of climate? No one knows for sure.
