Sunspot activity continues to decline




For those who haven't kept up, sunspot activity is much more closely correlated to global temperature than CO2. This article point out that 2008 had the lowest sunspot activity in a century, and that so far 2009's count is even lower.

The total for this 11 year solar cycle is now the 4th lowest since the 1600's. The previous low cycles were associated with periods of extreme cold. Not surprisingly, global temperatures are dropping.
