Here is a video clip of an AccuWeather meteorologist discussing the influence of sun spots on “global warming”. His thesis is that increased sun spot activity is responsible for the warming temperatures. And that with said activity decreasing, we should have a period of cooling (which we have already entered). One really interesting thing he shared was a picture of a US submarine at the North Pole in March 1959. For it to be visible, there was a decided lack of ice, especially for March. That is 50 years ago, before “global warming.”
Update: Yes, that was pulled. But here are some other things on the subject.
