In 2005, when Al Gore produced his film and the accompaning book of the same title, An Inconvienent Truth, neither he nor any of the scientists who were working on climate issues at the time could have predicted the following two events:
1. That the Sun’s activity would drop to low levels not known since the mid 20th Century.
2. That we would be facing a massive economic recession that would affect most of the world.
The former has made global warming much less of a problem, at least for now.
While the latter has caused a slowdown in industrial output, the very thing that was the primary cause of global warming prior to 2005. Thus I have decided that it would be safe and prudent to put climate change on the backburner for a few years or so and concentrate on reviving our economy. Once we have made our economy strong again, and once we find solar activity rising once again, we can and MUST resume the focus on solving the global warming problem.
In the meantime, Al Gore, please find a new cause to champion. This one has run its course!
