Global ... Cooling?

Check this:

The sun has been spotless for a entire month. From the post, previous such events "have all led to rapid cooling. One was large enough to be called a mini ice age".

This could be bad for us, as a cooler temperature will result in lower farm outcome, and could lead to global famine. Yes, no matter how technologically advanced we are, we as humans are still depend on FOOD!! Just because right now food is abundant, doesn't mean we won't have shortage later.

So I started doing some climate research, and read this:
Never mind about the other claims, the important one is, since we are on the peak of the warm period, it will take another 100 year or so before we officially enter an ice age (but not include the mini ice ages, such as the one during American revolution).

I am glad to declare that we are safe :-)
