As more and more real scientific data comes in, and we are able to move further and further beyond the mythology and high-hopes of global warming high priest Al Gore, it becomes clearer and clearer that the public has been fed a massive campaign of hooey for the past 20 years.

Just a few days ago we looked at the extensive report from the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine which showed the correlation between temperature change and solar activity. Not only does current science show this, but the examination of historical climate data shows up-and-down climate cycles across the earth long before SUVs and power plants were ever dreamed of.

Just yesterday Space Daily featured an article about the recent diminished solar activity:
According to the forecast, the sun should remain generally calm for at least another year. From a research point of view, that's good news because solar minimum has proven to be more interesting than anyone imagined. Low solar activity has a profound effect on Earth's atmosphere, allowing it to cool and contract.
Earlier this month Fox News also ran a story reported in National Geographic News about reduced sunspot activity and the (coincidental) cooling of late:
And there may be a link to global warming - or, in this case, cooling. Current theories link an earlier solar quiet time to the "Little Ice Age," a cold snap that lasted from about 1300 to 1800 in Europe and North America.

During such "solar minimums," as they're called, the sun dims a bit, magnetic activity is reduced and solar storms are fewer. No one knows how long each will last until it's over.

The Maunder Minimum, a period of extremely low sunspot activity from about 1645 to 1715, coincided with the coldest part of the Little Ice Age, when Dutch canals regularly froze during the winter.

This past January, the Dutch canals again froze, for the first time in 16 years.
The planet has been generally warming from that "Little Ice Age" period (long before there were SUVs), so it's no surprise to have seen a warming trend over the last 100 years or so. And several hundred years prior to that Little Ice Age, the planet was warm enough for the Vikings to colonize Greenland (now covered in ice) and grow vineyards there.

Global warming has also been observed on Mars and Jupiter and other planets in the solar system in recent years - planets where no SUVs, power plants or capitalists exist. Yet somehow we are expected to believe that it's evil capitalist consumption that's causing global warming on earth? Go pull my other leg now.

We really are overdue for telling Al Gore and his apostles to stuff it. They've been shining us on with propaganda about climate change that doesn't even pass the smell test. And his buddies in congress and the White House itching to raise our electric bills 40% with a cap-and-trade global warming tax, there's no time like the present for America to jump off this bandwagon.

It's headed for an abyss and America doesn't want to be on it when it goes over.
