For my regular visitors, if you find that this blog hasn't been updating much lately, chances are pretty good I've been spending my writing energy on my companion blog. Feel free to pop over to Home is Where the Central Cardio-pulmonary Organ Is, and see what else has been going on.

A few more interesting things.

Obligatory disclaimer...

First, check out these real-time images of the sun. Notice anything interesting?

No sunspots.

In fact, there haven't been any sunspots visible since an "All Quiet Alert" was issued on Oct. 5.

The correlation between Earth temperatures and solar activity is far closer than anything else. The more solar activity, the higher the Earth's temperatures. Less solar activity is followed by colder temperatures. There's a lag of about 2-3 years.

I don't know of any other time we've observed 0 sunspots at all, never mind for such a long period, though it certainly may have happened before and we just don't know it. What will this mean for us within the next few years?

Next are a series of videos from a presentation called Climate Change - Is CO2 the Cause?
Part One
Part Two
Part Three
Part Four

Then there's this interesting article by one of the IPCC's expert reviewers.
