    LOL. So are what you are saying is we need to pump more Co2 into the air to prevent global cooling?

    If it would work I would say yes but as CO2 has yet to be shown to affect anything I would say continue as you were.....just get a good food supply laid in!

    In 2008, we had a strong and persistant La Nina, and a very low level of solar activity. Yet, 2008 was the 8th or 10th warmest year on record. Sounds to me like we are warming in spite of other variables that should have us cooling.

    And that is the conclusion of the three papers just published by the National Academy of Sciences.


    Triple Crown of global cooling could pose serious threat to humanity

    In 2008, we experienced 265 days without a sunspot, the fourth-highest number of spotless days since continuous daily observations began in 1849. In 2009, the trend continued, with 261 spotless days, ranking it among the top five blank-sun years. Only 1878, 1901 and 1913 (the record-holder with 311 days) recorded more spotless days.

    WOW! Lie on top of BS on top of Lie on top of BS.

    I pulled my favorite lie from the above link. There is absolutely no correlation between sunspots and temp as the below chart proves!
    What a moron!!! :rofl:

    Actually there is a minor coorelation between sunspots and temperture. You see, during periods of low sunspots, the total solar irradiance is very slightly lower.
