You can't do anything about the sun. We revolve around it. It controls Earth's destiny. Solar flares are increasing in record numbers. That is a bigger threat than any so called man influenced global warming.
i stated a fact not an opinion. We do revolve around the Sun and solar flares are impacting us more and more and there's NOTHING we can do about it!

When I see palm trees growing in my back yard here in Philly, I'll believe global warming. Until then it is so much nonsense.

Yup, I bout roasted today at 81 in Indiana in August. Heard the artic was cooling earlier than normal. Darn pesky globull warming.

Nonsense is when you take a scientific fact and you refuse to believe it.

The Global Warming that has occurred to date is a scientific fact. The amount of Global Warming that will occur in the future is scientific theory.

Lemming leader say's there is no flat earth, and globull warming is real, cause they say so. What to do when lemming leader leads lemmings off cliff.

its a scientific fact that it has been cooler where I live, I guess you'll say it is because of floating ice from the North Pole or change in jet stream.

Ever increasing explosive solar flares impacting the Earth will affect our future more than "man made" global warming. Isn't that a irrefutable scientific fact?

Apparently you do not understand the difference between local weather and global climate.

The federal government's National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration issued its annual State of the Climate report Tuesday. Mostly, it was bad news: rising sea levels, less sea ice in the Arctic and warmer oceans. NOAA said 2012 was in the top 10 hottest years on record for global average temperature, but in the U.S. it was the hottest on record.

Where do you get your "irrefutable scientific fact(s)?"

According to NASA:

Solar irradiance changes have been measured reliably by satellites for only 30 years. These precise observations show changes of a few tenths of a percent that depend on the level of activity in the 11-year solar cycle. Changes over longer periods must be inferred from other sources. Estimates of earlier variations are important for calibrating the climate models. While a component of recent global climate change may have been caused by the increased solar activity of the last solar cycle, that component was very small compared to the effects of additional greenhouse gases. According to a NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) press release, "...the solar increases do not have the ability to cause large global temperature increases...greenhouse gases are indeed playing the dominant role..." The effects of global climate change are apparent (see section below) despite the fact that the Sun is once again less bright during the present solar minimum. Since the last solar minimum of 1996, the Sun's brightness has decreased by 0.02% at visible wavelengths, and 6% at extreme UV wavelengths, representing a 12-year low in solar irradiance, according to this NASA news article (April 1, 2009). Also, be sure to read this more recent article: 2009: Second Warmest Year on Record; End of Warmest Decade.

If you think that NASA is part of a vast conspiracy your tin foil hat is too tight and it is cutting off the flow of blood to your brain.

i do know the difference. Some places are warmer, some are cooler. The average is warmer nationwide and globally. Our country had the hottest in the 1920s and 30s and then in 1998 and 2012. Everything is cyclical!

NASA for generations told us that there were 9 planets in our solar system. That study A lot has changed from that study you referenced. They have now started to pay more attention to solar flares and their impact on our planet. Solar flares do play a rapidly increasing role. Solar flare critics gain nothing by admitting that fact. They now have radiometric imager that map the surface of the sun and reveal the contributions of each of its surface features to the sun's luminosity. They didn't have that for that 2006 study published in an article in 2009. A lot has changed in 7 years.

Except for the man-made ghg emissions into the planet's atmosphere.
