Sunspot Activity Predicts Lower Temperatures

At Watts Up With That, correlating solar cycles with global temperatures. The two are oddly congruent, which we know must be a complete coincidence.

One of my favorite commenter quotes ever. Forget who said it, but I don't forget the line:

If... only there were some natural mechanism for explaining the warming and cooling of the earth.

It would have to be unreasonably large, however -- on the scale of our own sun.

One thing I notice in this post (which, frankly, mostly escapes me) is that the scientist writing it makes actual predictions by which his theory can be judged correct, incorrect, or correct but incomplete.

Remember when scientists used to do that? When they used to bother with the third and fourth step of the scientific method? Good times, good times.

Thanks to SJ.
