During our 11 minute plus discussion with Dr. Pal Brekke & John Batchelor, we discussed the current solar cycle 24, the Solar Max, sunspots, climate change, and the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis). Please note that John Batchelor spoke with Dr. Brekke in Norway via a cell phone so the audio is up to its usual quality. Dr. Brekke explained the Northern Lights, answered many questions and then we connect our discussion to the current solar cycle, the issue of fewer sunspots at this time and why, plus what does it mean to see fewer sunspots. Near the end of the segment, I asked Dr. Brekke about the impact of the double peak which is making the Solar Max quite different.
