Actually, the ad-hominem about Al Gore is about as rational as claiming that he isn't a Christian because he doesn't wear a crown of thorns or nail himself to a cross. How are you doing on that score, or have you sold your soul (if any) to Satan?)

What would YOU know about religion? Wearing sack cloth and ashes or are you a hypocrite..(<sarcasm>)

Can't admit Al Gore is a hypocrite?

Global cooling: Are we headed into a ‘little ice age?’

Global warming? More like global cooling, according to a leading U.K. scientist.

Professor Mike Lockwood from Reading University told the BBC that at the current rate of decline in solar activity, there is a risk that Northern Europe could become much colder and enter a new “Little Ice Age.”

The “Little Ice Age” refers to a period during the 1600s when winters were harsh all across Europe. The cold weather that plagued the continent coincided with an inactive sun, called the Maunder solar minimum.

Lockwood argues that during the late 20th century, the sun was unusually active, with the so-called “grand maximum” of solar activity occurring around 1985. But solar activity has decreased since then.

This is a regional effect, not a global one. Does not negate the effects of global warming.

And what did the leading UK scientist have to say about the story?
Mike Lockwood It amazing how one can be misrepresented no matter how clear one tries to make it! One point I made to Hudson is that many of the so called bits of "evidence" for solar influence on global temperature actually come from Europe in winter (cf Eddy and all that) and so are not global at all. Depressing.
Mike Lockwood I am only talking of regional effects!!!!!!!!!! On the global front I refer you to Jones, Stott and Lockwood (JGR 2012 doi: 10.1029/2011JD017013) in which we showed that even a Maunder minimum would have almost no effect on global temperatures - very similar to the result in Stefan's paper. I have always made it clear (and did make it absolutely clear to Paul Hudson - I couldn't have stressed it more!) that I am only talking about blocking events so for example if such an event brings cold Arctic air to central Europe in winter, it takes warm moist air up to Greenland.

"The researchers have found strong correlations between weak solar activity and the occurrences of 'blocking'. As the temperature is affected by a weak Sun so the wind's patterns also change and, as the warmer westerly winds fail to arrive, the UK is hit by north-easterlies from the Arctic."

Hmmm... weak solar activity blocking jet stream. No mention of global warming. Could warming come from the sun?

Naaw... that's silly.

What does the author say?
Mike Lockwood so there is absolutely no misunderstanding here - I too am 'vociferous advocate' of (the known science that anthropogenic greenhouse gases causes) global warming!

What influence will future solar activity changes over the 21st century have on projected global near-surface temperature changes?
Gareth S. Jones
Mike Lockwood
Peter A. Stott

"During the 20th century, solar activity increased in magnitude to a so-called grand maximum. It is probable that this high level of solar activity is at or near its end. It is of great interest whether any future reduction in solar activity could have a significant impact on climate that could partially offset the projected anthropogenic warming. Observations and reconstructions of solar activity over the last 9000 years are used as a constraint on possible future variations to produce probability distributions of total solar irradiance over the next 100 years. Using this information, with a simple climate model..."

A "simple climate model"?

There is such an thing? Seriously?

Sheesh...

A "simple climate model" is not a literary concept but a coded science term..
