C02 by soda... well then you must believe in the methane released by cow manure ... what about PCB's Aerosols? yer gonna blame soda. What about
the VAST countries that dont drink carbonated soft drinks??? Opps must be Americas fault!!!
And what about the fact there has been no Sun spots for a long time:
"That's good news for people who scramble when space weather interferes with their technology, but it became a point of discussion for the
scientists who attended an international solar conference at Montana State University. Approximately 100 scientists from Europe, Asia, Latin America,
Africa and North America gathered June 1-6 to talk about "Solar Variability, Earth's Climate and the Space Environment."
The scientists said periods of inactivity are normal for the sun, but this period has gone on longer than usual.
"It continues to be dead," said Saku Tsuneta with the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan, program manager for the Hinode solar mission.
"That's a small concern, a very small concern."
The Hinode satellite is a Japanese mission with the United States and United Kingdom as partners. The satellite carries three telescopes that together
show how changes on the sun's surface spread through the solar atmosphere. MSU researchers are among those operating the X-ray telescope. The
satellite orbits 431 miles above ground, crossing both poles and making one lap every 95 minutes, giving Hinode an uninterrupted view of the sun for
several months out of the year.
Dana Longcope, a solar physicist at MSU, said the sun usually operates on an 11-year cycle with maximum activity occurring in the middle of the cycle.
Minimum activity generally occurs as the cycles change. Solar activity refers to phenomena like sunspots, solar flares and solar eruptions. Together,
they create the weather than can disrupt satellites in space and technology on earth.
The last cycle reached its peak in 2001 and is believed to be just ending now, Longcope said. The next cycle is just beginning and is expected to
reach its peak sometime around 2012. Today's sun, however, is as inactive as it was two years ago, and scientists aren't sure why.
"It's a dead face," Tsuneta said of the sun's appearance.
Tsuneta said solar physicists aren't like weather forecasters; They can't predict the future. They do have the ability to observe, however, and they
have observed a longer-than-normal period of solar inactivity. In the past, they observed that the sun once went 50 years without producing sunspots.
That period, from approximately 1650 to 1700, occurred during the middle of a little ice age on Earth that lasted from as early as the mid-15th
century to as late as the mid-19th century."
AND I QUOTE : "In the past, they observed that the sun once went 50 years without producing sunspots. That period, from approximately 1650 to 1700,
occurred during the middle of a little ice age on Earth that lasted from as early as the mid-15th century to as late as the mid-19th century."
And we are facing Global warming ...??????
And all plant life on earth CONSUMES C02... thats how they live!!!
think about it
the truth is out there... look it up
