A useful discussion. . . .

I suggest that Tony Blair and his G8 pals might just be dumbfounded by this excellent discussion. Note that the summary has one sentence I have to disagree with - the last sentence in italics "By the 1990s, there was a tentative answer: minor solar variations could indeed have been partly responsible for some past fluctuations... but future warming from the rise in greenhouse gases would far outweigh any solar effects". Why - because this is outrageous speculation that rides on the back of hard won research, thought and deductive process. Why was this sentence included? Simply to act as a salve, I would have to guess, which is too damn bad.
