    Until now it has been assumed that less activity from the Sun equates to less warming of the Earth.

    But the new research, which focuses on a three-year snapshot of time between 2004 and 2007, suggests the opposite may be true.

    The article is rather shameful for even bringing it into their title considering the scientist several times dismissed a significant effect on current climate several times during the interview. Confusing people about the meaning of theory isn't a good feature either. Media reporting of science are absolutely horrendous.

    Yes, that's a ridiculous headline, but about par for that particular rag. Science Daily has it about right.

    It occured to me when reading the original article that if you have CO2 cause global warming (one of the causes), then it must absorb heat and so expand and so cool as concentrations go down?
