does this not also increase the chances for the sun to produce large solar flares?

noted, fascinating....might this give humanity the delay/time we need to make the changes in our infrastructure and energy sources to save our planet from ourselves....

Oh noes! Panic in the streets!!! We're all gonna FREEEEEEZE!

Relax, people. It's just the sunspot cycle. It's more complex than just every 11 years - some parts are longer; some are shorter. We still need to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. This article is NOT permission to slack off on cleaning up our planet!

Cue up Rammstein 'Sonne'

So much for 'global warming'. We should still cleanup the pollution, but with this polar shift we can quit listening to 'Chicken Little' Gore for good.

Why would anyone who rejects the much more conclusive science behind global warming accept this preliminary scientific theory? Science like the universe is not a buffet where you can just pick out what you like and ignore the rest.
