China is experiencing unusual chills this winter with its national average temperature hitting the lowest in 28 years, and snow and ice have closed highways, canceled flights, stranded tourists and knocked out power in several provinces.

The sun's peak of solar activity this year will likely be the quietest seen in at least 100 years, say NASA scientists who watch Earth's closest star daily. Sunspot numbers are low, researchers said, even as the sun reaches the peak of its 11-year activity cycle. Also, radio waves that are known to indicate high solar activity have been very subdued.
"It's likely to be the lowest solar maximum, as measured by sunspot 'number,' in more than a century," wrote Joe Gurman, a project scientist for NASA's sun-observing mission Stereo, or Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory. The current sun weather cycle is known as Solar Cycle 24.THE SUN HAS MORE EFFECT ON EARTH'S CLIMATE THAN CO2 - WHICH IS BENIGN.
IF CO2 DETERMINED OUR CLIMATE, THEN WE'D BE HAVING THE WARMEST WINTERS EVER.
IOW: AGW IS NOTHING MORE THAN CO2PHOBIA AND A LEFTIST SCHEME TO CONTROL INDUSTRY AND OUR ECONOMY.
UPDATE: MORE PROOF HERE.
DON'T BE DUPED.
