(Global warming protesters ironically getting pounded by snow in freezing temperatures)

The global warming nutroots are spinning like crazy as they try to convince us all that human-caused global warming still exists – even though the rest of us are digging out under record snow in record cold temperatures across the globe.

Avid readers of this blog will know that I have repeatedly showed that Al Gore’s back-of-the-napkin math simply doesn’t add up. He has continuously been debunked by well-respected geniuses like the Oregon Petition Project, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, and NASA. But he still just doesn't seem to cave!

So what do un-relenting zealots do when they are backed into a corner?.. They get defensive, baby!

First they wanted to tax us to death, then they wanted to start issuing pointless carbon credits, then they wanted to phase out light bulbs, then people started sterilizing themselves cuz having children was destructive to the environment, then they started having abortions altogether to fight the cause… and now, because too many of us are starting to doubt global warming, they want to throw those of us who don’t believe in climate change in prison!

These people have lost… their… minds.

And if that's not enough, useful idiot-in-chief John Kerry blamed the recent destruction by tornados down South on global warming. Riiiight... Because tornados never happened before global warming, right Senator? He probably should've read Earth & Sky's article stating that "no scientific studies solidly relate climatic global temperature trends to tornadoes" before publicly making a fool of himself. Again.

Ah, but there is hope for humanity. Scores of Canadian scientists have conducted a large, well-funded study and are now stating that, get ready for this, the sun actually has more of an effect on global warming than many realize.

Huh, imagine that. The sun actually plays a role in the earth's temperature. Who would have thought?

Read the article. The scientists believe that the sun doesn't have a fever and is actually on a path towards cooling. Here's an excerpt:

Solar activity fluctuates in an 11-year cycle. But so far in this cycle, the sun has been disturbingly quiet. The lack of increased activity could signal the beginning of what is known as a Maunder Minimum, an event which occurs every couple of centuries and can last as long as a century.

Such an event occurred in the 17th century. The observation of sunspots showed extraordinarily low levels of magnetism on the sun, with little or no 11-year cycle.

This solar hibernation corresponded with a period of bitter cold that began around 1650 and lasted, with intermittent spikes of warming, until 1715. Frigid winters and cold summers during that period led to massive crop failures, famine and death in Northern Europe.
So how does Al Gore respond to this? He actually goes out and slaps hard scientific data in the face and cries that climate change is "significantly worse" than originally thought!

Folks, I'm telling you, this guy is hanging on by his fingernails.

Maybe the 400 prominent UN IPCC scientists who publicly announced that global warming is a hoax can convince him to end greenhouse gas emissions by shutting his mouth.

Exit question: How long until some activists call for a ban on the sun?
