Mexican scientist: Get ready for next "little ice age"

Think there's "consensus"? Me thinks not. We keep hearing this one bantered about every few months. Now, wait! You mean the Sun could help vary our climate??!! No way! It's La Nina, damn you!

Translated version of http://www.milenio.com/mexico/milenio/nota.asp?id=651680:

An expert from the National Autonomous University of Mexico predicted that in about ten years the Earth will enter a "little ice age" which will last from 60 to 80 years and may be caused by the decrease in solar activity.

Victor Manuel Velasco Herrera, a researcher at the Institute of Geophysics of the UNAM, as argued earlier during a conference that teaches at the Centre for Applied Sciences and Technological Development.
