Cooler Sun = Cooler Temperatures?

Here we go again with talk on low sunspots. Consequently, “global warming’s” decline has mirrored the depression in sunspot activity. Why isn’t anyone asking the simple question: Is there a correlation between global mean temperature and solar activity? No, because that might endanger the pipedream of a CO2-driven climate system. Instead, we’re fed an unending stream of revisionist reasons on why we’ve seen such cooler temperatures—the oft mentioned “masked global warming.”

Why in the heck would anyone think that solar weather has anything to do with temperatures on Terra Firma, or any of the other planets for that matter?

The answer is YOU WOULDN’T…if you’re a news-believing moron.

Deep Solar Minimum

April 1, 2009: The sunspot cycle is behaving a little like the stock market. Just when you think it has hit bottom, it goes even lower.

2008 was a bear. There were no sunspots observed on 266 of the year's 366 days (73%). To find a year with more blank suns, you have to go all the way back to 1913, which had 311 spotless days: plot. Prompted by these numbers, some observers suggested that the solar cycle had hit bottom in 2008.

All of our planets were hotter with more sunspots.Some scientist somewhere has something riding on man made global warming.-politics-
