The SUN drives the climate on earth. (and the occasional volcano) The global warming pseudo-scientists did NOT even take any variations in the Sun into account when they did their infamous climate calculations and came up with the stupid "hockey stick" graph.
If you look back at the variations of global temperature they are in direct correlation to the suns activity. CO2 is GOOD, plants grow better with increased levels of CO2.
The Sun (at the extreme frustration of Gore and the people who plan on enriching themselves on the backs of the working poor) since the beginning of 2008 has entered a quiet period. Sunspot activity has virtually come to a complete halt. We have had long stretches with a totally spotless sun.
Why does this matter? Sunspots are magnetic storms on the surface of the Sun. The magnetic fields and solar wind of a Sun with lots of active sunspots shield the Earth from Cosmic rays.
What do cosmic rays have to do with anything? The increased cosmic rays hitting the Earth as a result of the lack of sunspots, interact with water vapor in the Earth's atmosphere to form CLOUDS. Increased cloud cover reflects more of the Sun's energy back into space. Ever wonder where the energy comes from for lightening? Cosmic rays, which is actually gamma radiation are the source of the energy for lightening, and the increased level of cosmic rays hitting the Earth also are thought to affect DNA causing mutations and evolutionary changes.
In summary, the Earth is getting cooler, not warmer. The current decrease in Solar activity will come to be known as the "Gore Minimum".
It is going to get VERY COLD if the Sun continues in its present state. There is no sign the Sun is going get more active and on the contrary, what I have seen indicates a continued long period of solar INACTIVITY.
Global Warming is NOT what we need to worry about..
What we need to worry about is HUGE icecubes in our backyard and figuring out how grow enough food for everyone and keep from freezing our butts in the coming ice age.
The "warmists" are doing a HUGE disservice to humanity diverting attention from the real problem in order to line their pockets with their "carbon trading" snake oil scheme!
