A Shockingly Inconvenient Truth

Back in 1991, before Al Gore first shouted that the Earth was in the balance, the Danish Meteorological Institute released a study using data that went back centuries that showed that global temperatures closely tracked solar cycles.

To many, those data were convincing. 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.

Read the rest here.

Seems the REAL cycles have to do with sunspots, and we're in store for a return to the icebox effect by roughly 2020. Wonder what that'll do to futures in carbon credits. Of course, the Global Warming nuts don't care. Hell, it's all Bush's fault anyway.
