We have seen the future, and it sucks.

Low Sunspot Activity Linked to Rivers Freezing: Mini Ice Age on Way?

29th August 2012

Read it.

A team of boffins in Germany say they have found a statistical link between periods of low solar activity and very cold winters in Europe. Some physicists believe that a long period of low solar activity – like the “Maunder Minimum” of the 17th and 18th centuries – could be on the cards in coming decades, so the new research might indicate an upcoming “mini Ice Age”.

That would be entertaining, watching all of the Global Warming crowd trying to keep their heads from exploding.

    Amazing, you turn off the heater and the house gets cold. Who’da thunk?

    As usual, a false dichotomy. Global warming and low sunspot activity are not correlated, and both may be happening at the same time.

    Just ’cause it ain’t rainin’ don’t mean there ain’t a storm comin’.

    It’s only a matter of time before someone comes up with a link to show how mankind is screwing up the sun.

    Lefties cannot accept that the planet is dynamic, not static. Their understanding of the world is as limited as looking at a snow globe. Shake it, snow flakes swirl, that’s all one needs to know.

    “Lefties cannot accept that the planet is dynamic, not static.” Oh, we understand that the planet is dynamic. We also understand that, as a dynamic system, what we do influences it. Our actions change the dynamics.

    That is the thing Righties cannot admit, that what we do can, and does, have a negative impact on things.

    My Italian grandmother-in-law had a saying she brought with her from Sicily: Don’t shit where you eat. Guess the Right has never heard it. More’s the pity.
