The sun is making the scientists on earth look bloody stupid. We could have 100 times more cars, and still would be ok. It is only about control.
The sun being asleep has shown us, who really controls this planets weather, although weather manipulation goes on.

I was under the impression that the sun was heating up and this was a claim that people made when trying to debunk Global Warming / Climate Change. So if the sun was heating up it mean that humans were not the major cause for the CO2 issue.
Sunspots are areas of the sun with reduced surface temperature, right? So does this mean that the sun is not in fact heating up but getting colder?

dismissing all the research based on some fluctuations in the solar sunspot cycle is incredible. there is less evidence that sunspots effect atmospheric temperature than CO2 but you're happy enough to go along with the idea, why is that?
So basically what you are saying is that the Sun affects the earths temperature less than "Greenhouse Gasses".
No offense but that is absolutely ridiculous.

ive been reading some of the comments and i dont think some people get it. yes global warming is BS, but climate change is real, but what politicans say that we are causing this climate change is pure BS.
i guess the guys at SOHO was right, 2012 will be the most powerful solar maximum we've ever seen.
ive also read somewhere that solar maximums this large will cause auroras to appear near the equator, which probably what those mayans were talking about.
The Little Ice Age by anthropology professor Brian Fagan of the University of California at Santa Barbara, tells of the plight of European peasants during the 1300 to 1850 chill: famines, hypothermia, bread riots, and the rise of despotic leaders brutalizing an increasingly dispirited peasantry. In the late 17th century, writes Fagan, agriculture had dropped off so dramatically that "Alpine villagers lived on bread made from ground nutshells mixed with barley and oat flour." Finland lost perhaps a third of its population to starvation and disease.
