Between them, those rubes would bully and, I suspect, jail those that deny their claims that the science "is in."
Well, in the "are we sure the science is in" category, the Daily Mail carried this lovely bit:
The Maunder Minimum covered a stretch of nearly 70 years, when solar activity was at its minimum. Decreased temperatures associated with that minimum produced the record-breaking lows associated with the freezing of the Thames.
We knew that we were going to get boiled in the steamy soup of a man made meltdown.
Now, we're being warned that we're about to enter the cusp of a new mini-Ice-Age, the likes of which we haven't seen in nearly four centuries.
