Submission + - Solar Cycle Linked to Global Climate (spacefellowship.com) 2

Matt_dk writes: "Establishing a key link between the solar cycle and global climate, new research led by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) shows that maximum solar activity and its aftermath have impacts on Earth that resemble La Niña and El Niño events in the tropical Pacific Ocean. The research may pave the way toward better predictions of temperature and precipitation patterns at certain times during the Sun's cycle, which lasts approximately 11 years."

  • I have heard the moon contributes significantly to global cooling...

  • This is wrong. The continual fusion bomb at the center of our pathetic little corner of the universe only shoots out 4 x 10^26 W. It is much more likely that this is something politically powered. I choose to first blame the Republicans, then the Democrats, then China. Maybe we should crush up all of our cars.
