IPCC: ummm, ahhhh, yea maybe the Sun does have something to do with climate

The 2013 IPCC report will now include solar effects in their "models".

...Over the famous 11-year solar cycle, the sun's brightness varies by just 0.1 per cent. This was seen as too small a change to impinge on the global climate system, so solar effects have generally been left out of climate models. However, the latest research has changed this view, and the next report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), due in 2013, will include solar effects in its models...
The Sun just emailed me and requested I relay this message to the IPCC:
"How's my ass taste now bitches?" - The Sun

Ass munching bonus round - The arctic sea ice strikes back:

...Canadian Journal of Earth Sciences finds that Arctic sea ice extent at the end of the 20th century was more extensive than most of the past 9000 years...
Real scientists make mistakes. Propagandists lie.
