... based on the best science regarding solar cycles, that the cooling trend will likely continue, as mentioned, until 2030 or so....
This is exactly the reason that they want Cap/Trade. They can claim, over the coming years, that their incredible foresight and wisdom saved us. Therefore, attempting to gain credibility of having a clue about anything (which they only know re-election and stealing my money).
I absolutely hate these detestable bastards.

Nope. Everyone involved knows that the total effect of this multi-trillion dollar bill is a .2 degree drop in 2100 (maybe).
Any kind of drop in temperature over the next couple decades is completely unexpected by the global warming community, and such a drop will torpedo their theory. Really, the current drop in temperatures since 1998 should be enough to cancel any global warming based policy, in a sane world.
Instead, 0bama is in power.
