H/T SCT. Story Here. Watch the man made global warmers go bananas. We’ve been in a recession and there’s been less productivity in the west. Their theory would be less productivity less man made warming, right (that’s the whole point of cap and tax, after all)? So if man (especially western man) is responsible for global warming then there should be a corresponding dip in temperature not attributable to the solar minimum, right?
Instead higher temperatures eventually will occur because the sun has apparently burst out of the minimum.
We’re still in a recession with waaaay less productivity, hence less energy use. So let the spin begin. From the webpage Space.com on the burst of activity and solar flares:
The sun’s activity usually ebbs and flows on a fairly predictable cycle. Typically, a cycle lasts about 11 years, taking roughly 5.5 years to move from a solar minimum, a period of time when there are few sunspots, to peak at the solar maximum, during which sunspot activity is amplified.
The last solar maximum occurred in 2001. The latest minimum was particularly weak and long- lasting. The most recent solar eruption is one of the first signs that the sun is waking up and heading toward another maximum.
