Hey, man, do you know where can I buy some of that "global warming"?

"NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, captured this solar image on March 16, 2015, which clearly shows two dark patches, known as coronal holes. The larger coronal hole of the two, near the southern pole, covers an estimated 6- to 8-percent of the total solar surface. While that may not sound significant, it is one of the largest polar holes scientists have observed in decades. The smaller coronal hole, towards the opposite pole, is long and narrow. It covers about 3.8 billion square miles on the sun - only about 0.16-percent of the solar surface. Coronal holes are lower density and temperature regions of the sun’s outer atmosphere, known as the corona. Coronal holes can be a source of fast solar wind of solar particles that envelop the Earth."

Seems to be about the same ratio of coronal a-holes (politians) that we have on earth. Wonder if there's some correlation to the hot wind phenomena?

Everybody thinks the heat generated by stars is some sort of 'problem' in the universe. It ain't. The natural state of the universe is between 400 and 450 degrees BELOW zero. Cold is defined as 'the lack of heat'. When there's no heat, the default is cold. Damn cold! Get it?

An active star is hotter than an in-active star. "Active" is defined and characterized by sun spots. Sun spots are the cause of those huge "coronal mass ejections" we hear about that screw up radio transmissions and power grids on earth. The more sun spots, the 'hotter' the star. Not by much, but enough to for us to feel it.

Our star, the sun, has entered a quiet period that could last, God forbid, for 50 to 75 years. Sun spots have been low in number for years now. If solar activity doesn't pick up soon, it could get colder around here. I'm talkin' "ice age" colder.

Several thousand low temperature records were broken in the USA this year. Most of you can agree that this year's winter has been longer and colder.

What does all this mean? It means that contrary to the liberal mantra, there ain't no such thing as "anthropogenic (human caused) global warming". In spite of 'all that' extra carbon dioxide in the air, the sun still rules temperature on this planet, not the word of democrats.

All the claims of the 'global warming-climate change' crowd have been proven to be bunk. So if any of you happen to spot AlGore on the side of the road changing a flat tire, just ease over to the right a little bit and see if you can clip his ass.

Oh, and don't pack your heavy coat away too quickly. If you think 2014-15 was cold and sun-spot activity doesn't pick up, wait until next year. You'll definitely agree that something is amiss and it ain't got anything to do with humans on this planet.

The sun has something to do with the temperature of the Earth? HUH!

Seems we ought to have a National Space Agency to research crazy ideas like that.

Man made Global Warming and Climate Change are the modern version of the shaman of some south sea island blaming the volcano eruption on a lack of virgin sacrifices.
