We might be saved from the minimum we are currently in, which explains the life-threatening global cooling period we have been in since 1998. The fact is, we have been suffering on earth from cooling temperatures which is the real enemy of life and this because of the lack of sunspots which push away cosmic rays, which seed clouds and cool the earth.
Today, Spaceweather.com shows a decent sunspot. The first one in years. If this continues into a decent cycle of sun spots, we may finally have a decent spring and summer in 2010
For more on sunspots and climate please watch the truly excellent documentary, The Cloud Mystery. embedded below.
