Warmist Revkin vs warmist Heidi Cullen: No consensus on solar influence on climate - Solar Snooze News
Given the possibility (only a possibility) of a cooling influence on climate from an extended solar snooze, worth reviewing my 2008 post:

“Can Climate Campaigns Withstand a Cooling Test?”
Friedmanpedia / Heidi Cullen
"'Nature is like a big complex symphony,' said Cullen, 'and the sun is like the bass drum. Its beat drives everything--from when we had ice ages to when we had warming periods..."
Mr. REVKIN: And what I sense this year - there was a little of this last year too - is [skeptics are] realizing they have such a varied array of scientific explanations for what's going on with climate that they felt the need to sort of sync things up, to square up their own stories in some sense, because otherwise they're in danger of losing credibility. [Skeptics are] not gaining traction, let's put it that way. They're still out there. There are people on the other side of the issue who have a very extreme view of, you know, the climate becoming unraveled in real time where the science also is maybe not there. If you're trying to make a case to the public in America, if you're not consistent, that's a sign of you may not have reality on your side.
