Investor’s Business Daily has an editorial outlining some research being done on the effects of sun cycles on Earth’s climate. Apparently these heretics didn’t get the word from High Priest of Global Warmism Al Gore that all scientific inquiry into the matter is now over.
Back in 1991, before Al Gore first shouted that the Earth was in the balance, the Danish Meteorological Institute released a study using data that went back centuries that showed that global temperatures closely tracked solar cycles.
To many, those data were convincing. Now, Canadian scientists are seeking additional funding for more and better “eyes” with which to observe our sun, which has a bigger impact on Earth’s climate than all the tailpipes and smokestacks on our planet combined.
And they’re worried about global cooling, not warming.
Prediction: The Earth will enter a cooling cycle, and advocates of things like the Kyoto Protocol, carbon taxes, forcing everyone to use fluorescent light bulbs, etc., will take credit for the cooling, even though there will be no evidence that their efforts had anything to do with it – thereby escaping blame, and paying no price, for being so grossly wrong and hysterical.
