"The Left isnt made up of friends&allies. It's made up of competing parasites."
Revelation! The sun is hot! Thank you, scientists. Now let's stop buying the snake oil.

NASA's Latest Discovery: Sun Heats the Earth


"Robert Calahan at NASA’s Goddard Space Center could be in big trouble -- for telling the truth. Here is a headline for an article in the Daily Tech:

'NASA Study Acknowledges Solar Cycle, Not Man, Responsible for Past Warming"

'Past research has shown that the sun goes through eleven year cycles. At the cycle's peak, solar activity occurring near sunspots is particularly intense, basking the Earth in solar heat. According to Robert Cahalan, a climatologist at the Goddard Space Flight Center, "Right now, we are in between major ice ages, in a period that has been called the Holocene."'

"This report may represent the third time that NASA’s DR. James Hansen, Al Gore’s point man on his AGW hoax, has had to backtrack on his claims that humans are responsible for climate change.

In the past Dr. Hansen was forced to admit that 1934, not 1998, was the warmest year on record due to a lack of standardization of weather reporting stations. Hansen also misstated that “October 2008 was the hottest on record,” largely because the data used repeated September’s."

"The article concludes:

"The inconvertible fact, here is that even NASA's own study acknowledges that solar variation has caused climate change in the past. And even the study's members, mostly ardent supports of AGW theory, acknowledge that the sun may play a significant role in future climate changes.'"

The snake oil salesmen said we HAD to accept "the scientists," no matter what they said. So what's it to be now?

Will it be real appreciation of science, or the coming dark ages due to the embrace of the religion that is Modern Liberalism?

I've been saying this for years, and i'm not even a scientist!

Damn I'm a freakin' genius!!! Where's my Nobel Prize?

The fact that injecting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere at a rate faster than its uptake increases the average global temperature, which results directly from the physics of infra-red light, does not vanish because Solar cycles have a stronger effect on the climate. And we still don't know whether or not, and if so how much, anthropogenic alterations of the atmospheric compositions have affected our climate over the last couple of hundred years.

Note that this cuts both ways. The scientists who claimed that anthropogenic global warming was proved were making far too strong a claim, and making it for primarily political reasons. And it's even possible that anthropogenic global warming might be true -- and might be averting something worse, like the Ice Age that began to start in the 14th century but then aborted in the late 19th.

The truth is -- we just don't know. Still don't know.

I agree. We don't know.

I'm not saying it is or was certainly the sun. As you say, we don't know, and too few are showing examples like this for why we should question those who say they do know.

If we are on the descent into an ice age let's start up the SUVs.
