Darn Global Warming, we're all gonna die...

A couple of years ago, I blogged (somewhere :-) about a group of Russian scientists who were willing to bet what little money they had that in ten years the world would be COOLER, not warmer. They were proponents of the theory that the sun has much more to do with global temperature cycles than the atmosphere.

Naturally, loudmouthed pseudo-intellectual Manmade Catastrophic Global Warming proponents have all their complicated forecast models (none of which can predict the weather next week, let alone in ten years), and in NONE of them is cyclical solar activity even FACTORED.

Well, the sun, in spite of being a great light source, doesn't read what Gore and his gang are writing. It seems to be on its own schedule, and that has some folks concerned that-- you guessed it-- over the next several years it could get cooler. No, COLDER.

Sunspots have ceased, and the next cycle of sunspots is now long overdue. and temps are dropping worldwide, albeit not precipitously as yet.

The last time sunspots quit for an extended period, we had 'the little ice age' in the early 17th century, and millions died because crops failed. Southern England was covered in permafrost for a generation.

The next cycle was due at the beginning of this year. Predictions were shifted to early NEXT year, but now those too are to be moved back.

The sun is quiet; TOO quiet. We might well have to start flying MORE, using autos MORE, firing up the leaf-blower even if no leaves are present, just to add to the CO2 level and try to WARM UP this place.

If that theory has any substance at all, which I doubt.
