    I ran across this video about the Sun's atmosphere (something that has always fascinated me) and found the sequence from 2:35 on REALLY interesting. It shows the Sun's activity from 1999 and on. While some scientists have postulated, and I think correctly, that any level of warming in the early 2000's was related to Sun activity (and conversely the offsetting cooling trend later on), I find it unconscionable that so called "climate science" chooses to utterly ignore this correlation. I know why they are doing it, mind you, but it is detestable.

    I saw Bill Nye the Science Guy on TV talking about the first HD video of the sun.

    The sun is directly or indirectly responsible for every chemical reaction that goes on in the solar system. To unilaterally rule out it's culpability in global warming is at best asinine.

    I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.

    I also saw him debating for AGW not to long ago. It was sad because he was using arguments so lame I'd expect Wilbur to have done a better job at it then he did.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    This just goes to show how naive you guys really are here - what on Earth would convince you that climate scientists unilaterally rule out the effects of the Sun on our global temperature? You, here, by yourself, sitting in your chair at home, had the brilliant idea to think about the sun, and believe that all the worlds climate scientists simply overlooked it?

    Solar Variation is a huge area of interest in climate science.

    Yet the "consensus" is that man warms the Earth more than the primary source of all energy in our solar system. They obviously aren't as interested in the Sun as they are in tenure and grant money.
