#1305: Sun vs Climate, and the joys of communism.

Sun's magnetic field still in a slump. While SpaceWeather desperately tells us that there's nothing at all unusual about the extended quiet sun, little bits and pieces of information keep popping up nd showing that the sun is unusually quiet.

Such as the graph presented here which shows Cycle 24--the current sunspot cycle--as the second most quiet ever.

Certainly there is activity--sunspot #1005 emerged a couple days ago and is merrily traversing the face of the sun as I write this--but one must remember that during previous deep solar minima, there were not no sunspots, just a vastly reduced number of them.

We're seeing the weakest solar wind since we've been been able to measure them. We're seeing a sun that's unusually devoid of sunspots. And the GISS global temperature anomaly dropped 0.775 degrees. Is there a connection?

Hugo Chavez demonstrates how thoroughly communism fucks things up. There is nothing I can add to what's written in the article.

There aren't any surprises here. Communism has failed every time it's been tried, and the only thing that ever saves a communist economy (such as, oh, China's) is the introduction of capitalism.

Heh. Suck it, Hugo. You're a douchebag.
