    This item from Real-Science.com shows that “Factoring in the cooling effects of volcanic eruptions at El Chichón and Mt. Pinatubo in the 1980s and 1990s, January 2012 will come close to being the coldest month in the last 30 years. This despite a weakening La Nina and a solar maximum in progress.”:

    I dunno, its been crazy mild here all winter. But I believe that's got more to do with natural weather cycles than Al Gores jet exhaust!

    Not much of a "solar maximum", more like "just off the minimum"!

    Do you have a link for your claims?

    I've found a bunch of pages that predicted that 2012 would be the "coldest month" in 30 years, but nothing saying that it was.
