Skookerasbill needs to add art work to cap this off but according to scientists who have been monitoring the Sun, it appears that whatever recent "Warming" there is on Earth and other planets is likely due to the Sun, that Big Yellow Thing in the Sky, that either never gets included, or gets kicked to the curb in any manmade global warming models. Solar surprises raise questions for climate models "Insisting on caution, Haigh said that if the Sun turned out to have a warming effect during the "waning" part of the cycle, it might also turn out to have a cooling effect during the "waxing" part of the cycle. In that case, greenhouse gases would be more to blame than thought for the perceptible rise in global temperatures over the past century. "We cannot jump to any conclusions based on what we have found during this comparatively short period," Haigh said. "We need to carry out further studies to explore the Sun's activity, and the patterns that we have uncovered, on longer timescales." Wow! The Sun affects Earth's climate Who else is totally fucking shocked by this breaking "news"?
