Fuckin A. Thankfully we'll all be dead in 20 years anyway due to all the drowning and coronavirus.

I just took the trouble to find out what the science actually is, and all her paper was about is reduced sunspot activity, not climate related at all. Click bait reporters turned reduced sunspot activity to the sun dimming, which is simply incorrect. You couldn't find that out for yourself, probably not so much because you are scientifically illiterate but more because of your delusion level confirmation bias.

Here's another article from the same source:

THE MOON LANDING'S authenticity has been debated for more than 50 years, but a man who worked on developing the computer system for the lunar landing has set the record straight.

USA literally leads the world in reducing carbon emissions:

"The United States saw the largest decline in energy-related CO2 emissions in 2019 on a country basis – a fall of 140 Mt, or 2.9%, to 4.8 Gt. US emissions are now down almost 1 Gt from their peak in the year 2000, the largest absolute decline by any country over that period."

That's what's always so fun about science reported in the popular media. Details, lot's of 'em, get left out.

This solar cooling and the heating up of the global climate are not mutually exclusive. That was pointed out, if a little poorly:
However, other experts disagree with Prof Zharkova’s theory, stating any cooling effect will be “vastly offset” by climate change.
It would be best to go back to her sources and research and to eye her conclusions a little deeper. That's how real science works.
If you can't be a good example, you can still serve as a horrible warning.

Looking for Signs of Alien Technology

Unusual changes in the atmosphere and temperature of distant planets might be our first clue to the existence of life beyond Earth.

By Frank Wilczek
Feb. 13, 2020 9:58 am ET


The search for planets outside our own solar system has unearthed more than 4,000 of them so far. The challenge in finding planets is that astronomers aren’t looking for the biggest, brightest or most unusual objects in the sky, as they usually do. As sources of mass and energy planets are relatively insignificant, and they are much dimmer than the stars they orbit, making them hard to discern. But astronomers have risen to the challenge.

New techniques in exoplanetary astronomy now in development will vastly increase the count and give us more detailed information about the objects we discover—not just their masses and sizes but their temperatures and the chemical composition of their atmospheres. Atmospheres are especially significant in the search for alien life because they might be affected by biological processes, the way that photosynthesis on Earth produces nearly all of our planet’s atmospheric oxygen. The search for signs of life is a core subject in astrobiology, the study of life beyond Earth.

But less consideration has been given to a more spectacular possibility: astrotechnology. Could future exoplanetary exploration turn up evidence of advanced technology outside our solar system? What would such evidence look like?

A technologically advanced civilization born on one planet might want to diversify its portfolio by colonizing other planets nearby. (Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos, among others, have advocated that we Earthlings get to work on it.) To make such colonies habitable on a large scale, it would probably be necessary to re-engineer the new planet’s atmosphere to mimic the old one. Such clone exoplanets, with an otherwise inexplicable resemblance between their atmospheres, could be one signature of astrotechnology.

Another possibility is that an alien civilization might deliberately trigger a greenhouse effect to raise a planet’s temperature. A runaway greenhouse effect caused by an accumulation of water vapor and carbon dioxide turned Venus into a hellish wasteland; notoriously, an accumulation of carbon dioxide is currently warming Earth’s climate.

An advanced alien civilization could use this technique in a more controlled fashion to raise the temperature of a cold planet, making it more favorable for life by allowing it to support liquid water. Alternatively, it might be possible to use atmospheric engineering to produce cooling effects. Exoplanetary exploration could reveal “unnatural” atmospheres of either kind.

Anomalously high temperatures on an exoplanet could also be a sign that it is using artificial energy sources. Manufacturing powered by nuclear fission or fusion could look like that. Closely related to this concept is the Dyson sphere, a hypothetical structure named after the physicist Freeman Dyson. It involves deploying solar panels in space, on a colossal scale, to trap a significant fraction of a star’s energy output and beam that energy to planetary manufacturing centers.

The classic strategy in SETI, the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, is to look for signals that an advanced technology might broadcast. But this is an inefficient strategy, since almost all of any potential signal would miss our detectors. The pursuit of exoplanetary astronomy suggests a different approach. An alien species that wants to communicate could draw the gaze of exoplanetary astronomers to anomalies in its solar system, effectively using its parent star to focus attention. This might turn out to be the most practical way to open communications across the universe.

Yep. These people who automatically assume any alien visitors will be benevolent or care about us at all are kind of delusional. I'm not saying it's certain they'd be hostile but I'd say it's at least 50/50

Its been in the 60s and 70s several days the last 2 weeks. Jonquils are fully bloomed a full month ahead of normal, trees are already blooming, and I'm going to have to cut grass next week... in the middle of fucking February. This is usually our coldest time of year.
