Climategate is all the rage and well deserves to be. Scientific fraud on a scale unseen in our lifetimes. MC hasn't posted on it because of wall to wall coverage on other blogs and some media. Sunspots, however, receive less coverage but ought not to. True, Al Gore and CRU won't talk about them but there appears to be a great deal of (credible) science correlating sunspots or their absence with the earth's temperatures. The fewer sunspots, the chillier here on earth.
The sun has a role in climate change? Simply too intuitive for the climate frauds and impossible to tax and manipulate whole societies around the world. Click on the title of this post to read possibly more than you might want to on the subject (but thank God someone with sense is keeping watch).
