It was a curious exercise, watching environmentalists and weathermen turn Global Warming into a universal evil: the average temperature of the world is rather chilly.
Virtually all animals and plants do better in a warmer climate than a cooler one.
And not just because of the temperature: a warmer climate means more rain showers because water vapor increases. This also means less cyclonic storms, contrary to public perception.
But not to be deterred from turning a very active sunspot cycle into good news--in spite of record harvests throughout the world between 1995 and 2005--nut jobs, hysterics, Luddites, and opportunists have caused a world wide panic, blaming mankind for essentially warming the Earth by the release of Carbon Dioxide.
Albeit, the panic, so far, seems to be primarily among those of similar inclination--which unfortunately includes all 3 Presidential candidates, as well as every socialist government on the planet. As well as the scientific illiterates that make up the Mainstream Media...
Mob logic: "The issue is settled", "the argument is over" and "Shut up! We have a scientific consensus".
But there was one group of scientists that was not panicking about global warming: The astrophysicists. However they were concerned--but for a different reason: they were aware that the convergence of sunspot cycles would be followed by a dearth.

The sun is blank—no sunspots.
I’d give the low another 16 months before thinking something wrong.
Nothing is wrong.
For all of GWs faults (and he has many), he is right on this topic, too: http://www.reuters.com/article/environmentNews/idUSN0225568220080603?feedType=RSS&feedName=environmentNews&rpc=22&sp=true
Actually, given the Iraq War, tax policy, Supreme nominations, and his rare-in-politics sanity of global warming, GW really has been a good President. Maybe even great. This is esp. true when you consider BDS, the way the libdems have been fighting him on everything, constant villification in the MSM, etc., etc.
