Al Gore on ice...

The Sun Also SetsShocker... global temperatures closely track solar cycles. In other words, it's the sun, stupid:
... Now, Canadian scientists are seeking additional funding for more and better "eyes" with which to observe our sun, which has a bigger impact on Earth's climate than all the tailpipes and smokestacks on our planet combined.

And they're worried about global cooling, not warming.


The study says that "try as we might, we simply could not find any relationship between industrial activity, energy consumption and changes in global temperatures."

The study concludes that if you shut down all the world's power plants and factories, "there would not be much effect on temperatures."

But if the sun shuts down, we've got a problem. It is the sun, not the Earth, that's hanging in the balance.
I'm with Bryan that maybe we should "stop suffering from collective delusions of grandeur and realize that nature outsizes us in ways we don’t yet comprehend."
