‘Ol “I invented the Internet” Al is gonna wish he had never heard the term “Global Warming” and probably real soon. The big worry should be “Global Cooling”. God turned down the furnace probably just to get even with Al. The sun, which really drives the Earth’s weather has been in a quiet period for almost 2 years and that means things are cooling down.

According to NASA, we are seeing:

- The lowest sustained solar radio flux since the F10.7 proxy was created in 1947;

- Solar wind is the lowest observed since the beginning of the space age;

- The solar wind magnetic field 36 percent weaker than during the minimum of Solar Cycle 23;

- Effectively no sunspots;

- Cosmic rays at near record-high levels. (cosmic rays cause cloud formation)

Like one Russian climatologist said... “Better buy overcoats, its gonna get colder”

You should read the book “Fallen Angels” by Niven/Pournelle. It describes a time not too far in the future when the Environmentalists pretty much run the USA. They are still fighting “Global Warming” while glaciers are engulfing the northern tier states (Minneapolis, Milwaukee). It would be funny it there weren’t a ring of truth to it.
