The Truth about Global Warming

Okay, Global Warming is no longer the term of choice, mainly because it is not happening, but the Huffington Post has an article that is dead on with everything that I know scientifically and historically in showing that the whole "climate change" movement is a hoax. One of the observations made by the author, is that solar activity may have not only an effect on temperatures, but may have an effect on volcanic activity. Couple this with the recent earthquake storms, and we have the possibility of a true natural disaster if the Yellowstone caldera should suddenly erupt. Specifically:
Many solar physicists anticipate that the slumbering Sun of early 2009 is likely to continue for at least two solar cycles, or about the next 25 years. Whether the Grand Solar Minimum, if it comes to pass, is as serious as the Maunder Minimum is not knowable, at present. Major solar minima (and maxima, such as the one during the second half of the 20th century) have also been shown to correlate with significant volcanic eruptions. These are likely the result of solar magnetic flux affecting geomagnetic flux, which affects the distribution of magma in Earth's molten iron core and under its thin mantle. So, let us say, just for the sake of argument, that such an eruption takes place over the course of the next two decades. Like all major eruptions, this one will have a temporary cooling effect on global temperatures, perhaps a large one. The larger the eruption, the greater the effect. History shows that periods of cold are far more stressful to humanity than periods of warm. Would the eruption and consequent cooling be a climate-modifier that exists outside of nature, somehow? Who is the "flat-Earther" now?

The concept that the sun may be a factor in earth's changing climate is considered a controversial theory. National Geographic said so.
