I recently started a thread predicting that decreased solar activity would soon cause decreased temperatures across the globe. http://www.sciforums.com/showthread.php?t=77459 Many people asked: Well, apparently, it's here. Recent data shows that the entire increase in average global temperature over the past century has been wiped out in one year! Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! http://www.dailytech.com/Temperature Monitors Report Worldwide Global Cooling/article10866.htm So there you go. All the horrible damage inflicted by CO2 output wiped out in one year. ONE YEAR! I seem to recall someone saying that the increase in average global temperature of about 1 degree over one hundred years was unheard of. But we now have almost the same change in just a year. If this trend holds (let's pray it doesn't, because a new ice age would be a real problem, as opposed the the bullshit global warming hysteria), will environmentalists be begging us to drive big SUV's to help increase the temperature and forstall an iceage? Will we begin bragging about our giant carbon footprints? I doubt it. The point always was that the global temperature is BEYOND OUR CONTROL!
