RE: The Great Global Warming Swindle
An other indication of climate change.
"Experts are now probing whether this period of inactivity could be a second Maunder Minimum, which was a 70-year period when hardly any sunspots were observed between 1645-1715, a period known as the "Little Ice Age."
Scientists predict rare 'hibernation' of sunspots

Yeah, I saw that article too, but they are doubtful if the decreased solar activity will do much to offset greenhouse gases. We can see this trend already.

Solar activity has been dropping, but temperature keeps going up Undecided

RE: The Great Global Warming Swindle
Global climate change is a natural process for the Earth. It appears that the most devastating mass extinctions in history are due to rapid changes in Earth's climate via natural processes (volcanic eruptions, destabalization of vast reservoirs of methane, feedback loops, etc). We have to adapt with the enviornment not try to change it. At one point in time England grew grapes and made wine that rivaled the best French wines to the point where the French levyed large tariffs on it to prevent French wine producers from going belly up (prior to the Little Ice Age). Is there evidence for Anthropogenic forcing of climate? Maybe. Is there evidence for Antrhopogenic pollution that causes an increased rate in medical conditions such as asthma and cancer? Yes. We need new sources of energy and better standards to protect our health AND we need to begin preparing for climates to change by planning out new crop locations and water usage.

“Science is simply common sense at its best, that is, rigidly accurate in observation, and merciless to fallacy in logic.”

Maybe because you are learning from the past: most of the species that ever lived on this planet are now extinct (or fucked to use your vocabulary). I don't see why humans should expect anything different.

English is not my first language. If you think I am being mean, ask me. It could be just a wording problem.

The time period seems short for a general trend of fluctuations in Earth's temperature. Solar activity may not be the only cause of global temperature changes as other people mentioned Smile
