Shhhhhhhhhhh, We Just Put The Baby to Bed

I'm fairly certain that what we think we know, at any point in time, and therefore what we are convinced we should be panicked about, at that point in time, is always about to be overwhelmed by something we didn't know we were about to find out.

Take "climate change" aka "global warming." Yes, the name change arouses suspicion. It suggests that those who made the change understood a certain reality, that those involved in fleecing the public for funding for their projects (including the quite entrepreneurial types that simply want to drive green-conscious consumers into Green markets for goods and services) realized that "global warming" would be a hard categorization to maintain fears over if temperature changes flipped in the direction of cooling.

We are being daily harangued by complete science dolts -- including 57 States Obama and "More Welfare, Less Jobs" Jerry Brown -- about how the slight, gradual increase in temperatures is the fault of humanity. 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:

Last night, I went to bed in a nation on the brink of being drowned by the earth's tears over rising temperatures. This morning, I woke up to the apparent realization by solar scientists that the sun apparently is tired from an extended period of work and is going to take a nap. 

Mind you, not a little nap, like one takes on a lazy Sunday afternoon. A nap, the science suggests, deep enough, long enough, to witness the freezing of the River Thames, the mark of the so-called Maunder Minimum.

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.

So, there you have it.

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.

Given all the panic over global warming, I've just got one thing to say:

"If you wake him, you take him!"
