I feel obligated to remind everyone that not every sunspot is a prelude to disaster - far from it. Just because you see a bright spot on some SDO images, it is irrational to then believe that you're seeing impending doom. You need a clear image that can discern polarity of a sunspot accurately to even begin to predict the probability of flares, and even then we're shielded from the effects by our geomagnetic dynamo and atmosphere. Only in the worst of cases will anything on the surface of the planet be negatively impacted, and even then the impacts are dwarfed by terrestrial events such as flooding, drought, wildfires, heat waves etc.

The climate deserves more of your worry than our Sun, in my honest opinion.
