Theodor Landscheidt ( Bremen, 1927 – May 20, 2004) was a German author, astrologer and amateur climatologist. [1 ]
In 1989, Landscheidt forecast a period of sunspot minima after 1990, accompanied by increased cold, with a stronger minimum and more intense cold which should peak in 2030
, which he described as the "Landscheidt Minimum" His work on solar cycles is cited by [2 ] global warming skeptics to argue that observed warming is not anthropogenic and will soon be reversed, based on an assumption that fluctuations in climate are controlled by solar activity. [3 ] [4 ]
In 1983 he founded and financed the "
Schroeter Institute for Research in Cycles of Solar Activity" in Lilienthal, near Bremen. The Institute later moved with him to [5 ] Nova Scotia, Canada. In 2000, Landscheidt was a panelist at Rice University's Baker Institute for Public Policy Global Warming Conference .
