Re: Solar Maximum At Peak

Is your spidey sense tingling for 2015 as well?

I think 2015 will be a record as well, around the solar max and an el nino? It will not be as high as one would expect though, another just barely higher year.

Re: FYI on A. Watts.

Saying that he is denying SOMETHING is not calling him a denier mate. Keep looking.

Re: FYI on A. Watts.

I didn't call him a denier and given the quoted statement is the bulk of the post, the fact that it contains dishonest argument is completely relevant.
