All because the Sun stopped producing spots meaning that we are going to a cooling trend
The sun goes through an approx 11-year cycle as far as sunspots are concerned. The last cycle which ends in an ebb has just recently ended. The first sunspot of the newest cycle appeared on Jan 4,2008. In approximately 5 years the current cycle will peak and you will see how wrong you are in trying to base your opinion on this type of information.
Opinions are fine but if you wish to call those with opposing views idiots you might want to use information backing up what you say that isnt so easily disproved.
In any case the sunspot cycle does have an effect on global temperature. And the fact that the ebb of the last cycle which was longer than usual does question whether it marks the start of a change in the heating/warming trend because it puts into question whether the sunspot cycle is heading towards a minimum in a longer less cyclical cycle. Last years lower global temp was predicted by many climatologists because the start of the new sunspot cycle hadnt yet occured and was initially predicted to occur in 2006. In all only time will tell.
There is not one shred of proof that man is more than a contributing factor when it comes to climate change. We can’t slow it down because we don’t do enough to cause any real change one way or another
It doesnt matter whether man is a greater contributing or not, or for that matter whether man has contributed to the problem at all. Man is quite capable of solving problems that they dont cause. Whether we can correctly address this one is questionable but not worth ignoring. It does not mean people should not try to find possible solutions or try to predict how and why climate will change so that populations can plan ahead for what can be expected. My views on issues such as energy policy are not are not based on taking a side in the climate change debate. They are more closely related to issues of foreign policy, public health and economic factors.
So if we had taken steps back in the 70's where exactly would we be? We could very possibly have less of a reliance on foreign oil and oil altogether. Instead we are faced with much the same situation as well as a number of other problems to try to solve.
