A flat statement with hyperlinked source?
The World Data Center/ UK Particle Physics & Astronomy Research Council, UK, published that even during the Maunder Minimum, the Sun continued to produce a weak and cyclic magnetic field.
Yu. A. Mytsyk and Victor A. Loisha, Dneproppetsrovsk University, Tomsk, Siberia, USSR, published data from Russia, Ukraine, Polish, Armenian, German, and English sources, indicating up to 217 grand aurora during the 70-years of the Maunder Minimum; averaging around 2.8- aurora / year, same as for 1989.
And there's no evidence that life on Earth was ever remarkably impacted by the event.
