    Add Space.Com to the list of "Deniers", that is, the clear-headed people not snorting AGW Kool-Aid straight from the can. Apparently, that Big Yellow Thing in the Sky Affect our climate.

    Never saw that coming.

    "Even small changes in solar activity can impact Earth's climate in significant and surprisingly complex ways, researchers say.

    The sun is a constant star when compared with many others in the galaxy. Some stars pulsate dramatically, varying wildly in size and brightness and even exploding. In comparison, the sun varies in the amount of light it emits by only 0.1 percent over the course of a relatively stable 11-year-long pattern known as the solar cycle.

    Still, "the light reaching the top of the Earth's atmosphere provides about 2,500 times as much energy as the total of all other sources combined," solar physicist Greg Kopp at the University of Colorado told SPACE.com. As such, even 0.1 percent of the amount of light the sun emits exceeds all other energy sources the Earth's atmosphere sees combined, such as the radioactivity naturally emitted from Earth's core, Kopp explained."

    LOLOLOLOLOLOL.....ROTFLMAO......Oh, CrazyFruitcake, you are such a funny little retard.....I'm sure that the fact that the sun's activity affects the Earth's climate is a big news "FLASH" for an imbecile like you.....but if only you had the brains to actually read the articles you scrape off of some nutsoid denier cult blog and copy and paste here.....maybe you wouldn't always be making such a fool out of yourself in front of everybody.....

    From your article....

    Although the sun is the main source of heat for Earth, the researchers note that solar variability may have more of a regional effect than a global one. As such, solar variability is not the cause of the global warming seen in recent times.

    "While the sun is by far the dominant energy source powering our climate system, do not assume that it is causing much of recent climate changes. It's pretty stable", solar physicist Greg Kopp at the University of Colorado said. "Think of it as an 800-pound gorilla in climate — it has the weight to cause enormous changes, but luckily for us, it's pretty placidly lazy. While solar changes have historically caused climate changes, the sun is mostly likely responsible for less than 15 percent of the global temperature increases we've seen over the last century, during which human-caused changes such as increased greenhouse gases caused the majority of warming".

    Regional effect? Is that because the sun only shines on certain regions? Did a compuer model tell you that?

    That is beyond SSDD's abilities.

    And this thread is an example of how you do "debate", CrazyFruitcake.

    A retarded OP that is immediately debunked with quotes from your own article, which you obviously didn't read.

    I think it is hilarious that you are such a clueless retard. You provide some nice comic relief from the fairly easy work of debunking the more serious denier cult retards among us.
