There is no such thing as man-made global warming. Our planet warms and cools naturally, primarily due to solar activity related to sunspots, solar flares, and the lack thereof. As much as man wishes to be like God, we do not have the kind of affect on weather patterns the global warming scientists would like you to believe. Man-made global warming is the perfect scam. They make you feel good by telling you that if your recycle, use solar panels, pay more for electricity, and drive a hybrid, that you are saving the planet, and then use their environmental scam to get you to spend more money on "green" technology that is worthless, and meaningless, while also creating big government programs like cap and trade so that they can achieve more statist control over the people.
Now, the scientists are realizing that what is on the horizon is quite possibly that the sunspot cycle may be going into hibernation."
Solar activity fluctuates, which explains the warming and cooling periods throughout history, without the benefit of SUVs and factories. We may be entering a period, according to studies, that could lead to a cycle much like the 70-year period where hardly any sunspots were observed between 1645-1715, a period known as the "Little Ice Age."
It is possible that we are getting ready to experience the last solar maximum for a few decades, which could influence everything from space exploration to Earth's climate.
Recently, a moderate solar flare sent a coronal mass ejection in the Earth's direction, and the result was record temperatures in many points around the world.
Though most of these scientists ramble on about if such an event will offset "human carbon emissions and global warming," I see it as just another normal cycle that we will have to adjust to.
A lack of sunspot activity, in my opinion, will result in cooling.
So, wear a jacket. It's getting ready to cool globally.
Be aware, however, that the next group of environmental alarmists will step into the spotlight, and cry like they did in the early seventies, claiming that the next major ice age is on the horizon.
Ice age? Maybe. But it will get cold.
