Announcing the end of Global Warming

A recent change in the sunspot regime will lead to intense global cooling, according to the Space and Science Research Center, an Orlando-based solar research organization. I doubt we'll see this story on the front page of the local daily any time soon.

I still believe that the response to "climate change" (an annoying term that hints there ought to be "climate stasis" instead) is what mankind has always done as the climate has changed, ie choose among the following three alternatives:
  1. Adapt
  2. Move
  3. Perish
Nothing we do about carbon emissions will make the slightest difference anyway. Let's go fry bigger fish, maybe starting with water quality and availability. I can't wait for the debate around the first nuclear powered desalination plant.
