OH, GOOD, SOMETHING ELSE TO WORRY ABOUT:
Solar scientists predict that, by 2020, the sun will be starting into its weakest Schwabe solar cycle of the past two centuries, likely leading to unusually cool conditions on Earth. Beginning to plan for adaptation to such a cool period, one which may continue well beyond one 11-year cycle, as did the Little Ice Age, should be a priority for governments. It is global cooling, not warming, that is the major climate threat to the world.
So we'll either be roasting, or freezing. I guess either way, more insulation in my attic is a good idea.
