...and God laughed

For the past week or so, during the recent heat wave, much bleating about global warming has been heard from the media arm of the Obama administration -- you know, ABC, CBS, CNN, et al. Coupled with this were dire warnings about how we must change our evil ways, or else.

Juxtapose this with a story which appeared yesterday regarding the Sun's activity. Or, one might say, lack of activity. Despite a large flare erupting, sunspot activity remains low.

What does this have to do with your air-conditioning bill? Well, the last time such a low level of sunspot activity was known to occur, called the Maunder Minimum, our planet experienced another phenomenon called the Little Ice Age.

A hot summer does not indicate a mild winter to come. We merely have to wait for whatever weather the Creator graces us with. Considering that He exhibits a marvelous sense of humor, I can hardly wait.
