From The Guardian..........To be taken with a large pinch of salt!
On a planet 4C hotter, all we can prepare for is extinction
by Oliver Tickell (As you will see below, Oliver is trying to sell his NEW BOOK
There's no 'adaptation' to such steep warming. We must stop pandering to special interests, and try a new, post-Kyoto strategy
We need to get prepared for four degrees of global warming
, Bob Watson told the Guardian last week. At first sight this looks like wise counsel from the climate science adviser to Defra. But the idea that we could adapt to a 4C rise is absurd and dangerous. Global warming on this scale would be a catastrophe that would mean, in the immortal words that Chief Seattle probably never spoke, "the end of living and the beginning of survival" for humankind. Or perhaps the beginning of our extinction.

This newsletter from Nature magazine suggests that the sun does have a noticeable effect on temperature and indirect on hurricane activity. AND.... the good news, it is published in a real PEER reviewed Journal
Sunspot-hurricane link proposed
by Jeff Tollefson
Controversial research hints that solar cycle affects cyclone intensity.
A new study suggests that more sunspots mean less intense hurricanes on Earth. But many hurricane experts are cool on the idea. James Elsner, a climatologist at Florida State University in Tallahassee, has analyzed hurricane data going back more than a century. He says he has identified a 10- to 12-year cycle in hurricane records that corresponds to the solar cycle, in which the Sun's magnetic activity rises and falls.
