Alas, it's us humans - People are in denial about climate change (and other things as well), but no matter what they say, scientists insist that sunspots and solar cycles are not the cause of current global warming.
The idea that sunspot activity is the cause of global warming just isn't true. The problem started with studies published in 1991 and 1998 that claimed to establish a link between global temperatures and solar activity. However, most scientists now believe that these studies are seriously flawed. When the errors in them were removed by researcher Peter Laut, the link between sunspots and global warming disappeared as well. While the sun plays a role in climate change, it is a very minor one.
In the Independent, Steve Connor quotes researcher Paul Crutzen as saying, "There is definitely a problem [with these studies]. Laut has really pinned it down but the [sunspot] argument keeps reappearing and its quite irritating." It's more than irritating, it's dangerous, because it gives heavily-polluting nations like China an excuse not to change their ways.
If we're going to stave off disaster, we need to follow the right path and clean up our act here on earth. Don't forget the wise words of that great pundit who said: "Mankind is trapped. I want to help you spring the trap." "The veil between the worlds can fall. The undiscovered country can become your backyard." "Your destiny, each of you, is to become all of God."
