#1 Yes, but if its the Sun, then all those grants and taxes go 'puff' just like the other blood suckers exposed to the cleansing sunlight. Pols and eco-weenies power grabbers will be pining for the fjords.

#2 "The parasites are welcome to starve---sadly, they seldom do" Time enough for love.

#3 A few years ago, I read about a climate modelling program that had just been developed; it accurately predicted all the ice ages for the past muillion years or so.... except one. It predicted that we should be in one already. So perhaps all that reduction in greenhouse gasses and carbon has stripped us of the one thing that was holding off the coming ice age.

#4 "muillion" -- like a million, except illiterate

#5 Or maybe a simple typo, Gleash.

Not that you'd ever make one, of course....

#6 As I recall back in the Jimmy Carter era (or disaster as many say), global cooling was the big concern. "The sky is falling morons" would have us all do their bidding. These progressives would shut down any progress. Modern day Luddites. A hearty STFU to all of them.

#7 Livingston & Penn have shown that, due to a decrease in the sunspot magnetic field strength, the number of visible sun spots is steadily decreasing. Since magnetic fields cool sunspots, a decreasing field means that sunspots are getting warmer reducing their contrast with their surroundings, which in turn makes the spots harder to see.

If the trend continues, the number of visible sun spots may fall to values not seen since the Maunder Minimum AKA the little ice age.
