Roland Emmerich Wins a Round
Oh, by the way, we’re about to add chills to our fever:
What may be the science story of the century is breaking this evening, as heavyweight US solar physicists announce that the Sun appears to be headed into a lengthy spell of low activity, which could mean that the Earth — far from facing a global warming problem — is actually headed into a mini Ice Age.
Bear in mind that the science is inconclusive — while it’s well-established that the Earth experienced a “Little Ice Age” from 1645-1715 the last time the Sun went somewhat dormant, NASA will only say that “the connection between solar activity and terrestrial climate is an area of on-going research.”
And, well, it doesn’t leave humanity off the hook — we’re doing our best to fuck up our environment in a million other ways, with or without the Sun’s help.
