    If more of the sun's energy is trapped over time then the Earth would warm up even if the sun is going through a cooling period. And why is the sun's energy being trapped? Gases in the atmosphere such as CO2.

    The article does not say what you're trying to imply

    You're missing my point.

    My point is that this article is being represented as being authoritative, yet it begins with that moronic statement.

    Do you believe that our star isn't the main controller of Earth's climate?

    OK. The article says 'can't be'.

    "If the sun's energy is decreasing while the Earth is warming, then the sun can't be the main control of the temperature."

    This is the important paragraph:
    "Figure 2 shows how much different factors have contributed recent warming. It compares the contributions from the sun, volcanoes, El Niño and greenhouse gases. The sun adds 0.02 to 0.1 °C. Volcanoes cool the Earth by 0.1-0.2 °C. Natural variability (like El Niño) heats or cools by about 0.1-0.2 °C. Greenhouse gases have heated the climate by over 0.8 °C."

    I generally stay out of the global warming debates. I only looked at this thread because of my interest in astronomy.

    My critique of the article is based upon that idiotic statement at its beginning. If such a stupid declaration is made, at the start, why should I bother to read further? That one sentence is a credibility killer.

    I go from the best minds on the planet- NASA
    We could get 30-40 percent less Solar activity ... that means freezing weather for 5 years .. Winters are going to suck

    I do believe that GW is very small and is a mix of Humans and Solar Activity.

    NASA scientists lie to further political interests because they are underfunded.

    That's right ALL the scientists at NASA and other organizations around the world that monitor the Earths weather/ecology are lying,every single one of them. Its all a big 'conspiracy' and only climate deniers have integrity and are far sighted enough to see the truth. :applause:

    The moon landings were fake.. JFK actually shot himself but the establishment couldn't stand the embarassment

    Oh yeah.. and the Queen is a space alien lizard

    You can't "lie" your way to Mars.. It takes faithful devotion from top to bottom to make it
