Ok with all the crap going on in Europe over the Ukrainian issue why doesn't this surprise me that the Russians are just now coming out with this...
Could it possibly be to scare the EU into relaxing their stance over Eastern European Pipelines/Oil/Ukraine crises?
We can expect the onset of a deep bicentennial minimum of total solar irradiance (TSI) in approximately 2042±11 and the 19th deep minimum of global temperature in the past 7500 years – in 2055±11. After the maximum of solar cycle 24, from approximately 2014 we can expect the start of deep cooling with a Little Ice Age in 2055±11." --Habibullo I. Abdussamatov, Russian Academy of Science, 1 February 2012

But if you bothered to read any papers on the topic you would know that it's perfectly legitimate to say that colder winters or increased sea ice are symptoms of global warming... because they ARE. Here is an article that explains it simply.

Diana Rehm (NPR): We do wonder whether there's human involvement in all of these eruptions, earthquakes, storms -
Elise Labott (senior State Department producer for CNN): - and how much global warming has a role in it. You know we've seen a lot of wacky weather but that's just a microcosm for what's happening around the world and how much climate change is contributing to earthquakes and volcanic ash - it's a really good question.

If only the lot of you understood basic science.
Cold air is denser, and heavier, and higher pressure. Warm air is less dense, lighter, and lower pressure. When you create warm areas (low pressure areas), the cold air (high pressure) will naturally move to the low pressure areas much like how the high pressure air inside a balloon wants to escape to the lower pressure of its surroundings. Since cold air is heavier, it sinks down and forces the cold air down on the ground, and warm air up, causing severe weather.
This battle between hot and cold will cause temporary cooling until there is no such thing as cold air, and warm air will win the battle. Global warming.

The link says "supposedly" caused. The list is hogwash. Acne? Really? Caused by global warming? What idiot declared that?
