Save the World, Buy a Hummer

Drudge links to an interesting article by a Canadian scientist who studies sunspot cycles:

Solar scientists predict that, by 2020, the sun will be starting into its weakest Schwabe solar cycle of the past two centuries, likely leading to unusually cool conditions on Earth. Beginning to plan for adaptation to such a cool period, one which may continue well beyond one 11-year cycle, as did the Little Ice Age, should be a priority for governments. It is global cooling, not warming, that is the major climate threat to the world . . .

Climate change is a normal process on this planet. Most of North America was once covered with glaciers and may someday be covered with glaciers again. So run your air conditioning full blast, take that vacation on a private jet, and trade in your Prius for a gas guzzling Hummer. If you want to save the Earth you’ve got to get as much greenhouse gas out there as possible.
