At least it's a real science article, I`ll give you that, even though it`s not exactly new, it`s enough. But you`re reaching with your conclusions about the paper and what the author is saying. The author himself said he`s only analyzed 200,000 years and would need corroborations after looking into at least a million years to prove his model. So while this may suggest a possibility of a 100 ka solar cycle, this paper alone does not show that it actually exists. This also doesn`t really explain the rapid warming more recently seen, as his model is for predicting relatively moderate changes over a very long time frame. There are also sources of error from core samples.

So while it is interesting, it is not exactly shown to be correct, and even if it is it doesn`t somehow invalidate climate change. He`s not saying the Sun is the reason for all the warming we`ve seen, nor is he saying that we have no substantial impact on climate ourselves.

Thanks again 5cats and Ollie! What is the opinion of the overwhelming amount of climate scientists and those in the field with PHDs compared to right wing pundits and educated people such as yourself? Nothing that's what! Everyone with a brain can see that there is a global conspiracy going with these scientists, that and these people with years of study in the field are far too stupid to take into account details like what you guys constantly post! Keep fighting the good fight!

It tis true, the sun seems to be on a 10,000 cycle including a 'snapping of the magnetic arcs that get twisted up over time from its rotation.

@TJEx: They're not trapped in "summer ice", eh?

They`re trapped in "bitter irony"

The SS Ice block aka MV Akademik Shokalskiy will be stuck in the Antarctic summer ice that is not to be there as it summer until they run out of supplies and have to be air lifted off the ship.
