The local newsies picked this up a couple of years ago, but this is the 
first time I've seen it on the web. It is a major embarrassment for the 
Greenies BTW; they prefer to hush it down as much as possible. Can't 
imagine why <g>

If it is correct (and the evidence I've seen suggests that at least
holds a 
very large grain of truth) there are some bad news, and some good news.
bad news are that we can't do anything about it and that all the
models are wrong (since they "predict" the current temperature rise
taking variable solar activity into account, and thus probably
the CO2 etc. greenhouse effect by a factor lots); the good news OTOH is 
that failing to implement the Kyoto protocol isn't automatically
<g> and that this sort of thing has happened quite a few times before 
(which we already knew from ice cores etc., of course) without causing
end of Earth.

Whether you count the problems the theory causes for the 
eco-fundamentalists as "good news" or "bad news" depends on your point
view, I suppose :-)
