Here are two recent papers by Australian geologist David Archibald, both posted in http://wattsupwiththat.com. Dr. Archibald is saying that as the current solar cycle 24 (one solar cycle is 11 years on average, some are shorter, some are longer) is projected to be long, probably 18 years. Longer time for the Sun to ramp up, global cooling happens and is extended.
I added a 3rd paper from http://notrickszone.com/ by Pierre Gosselin, more peer reviewed papers are coming out saying "It's the Sun, Stupid".
So even if each person on the planet will be riding a car and the number of SUVs will double to its current number, global cooling will still happen. So what's the fuss about all those UN and government efforts to "fight global warming and climate change" and "save the planet"?
(1) Solar Cycle 24 Length and Its Consequences
And here's the 2nd article by Dr. Archibald.
(2) Ap Index, Neutrons and Climate
Other independent scientists, the astrophysicists especially, even if they are also skeptical of AGW hypothesis, are not that convinced of Dr. Archibald's analysis. But the difference among them are relatively minor, compared to those scientists and environmental groups who totally disregard the role of the Sun and are too focused on regulating and taxing human activities and energy use.
