More Emissions Please

R. Timothy Patterson is more than a denialist, he's a global coolist:

Solar scientists predict that, by 2020, the sun will be starting into its weakest Schwabe solar cycle of the past two centuries, likely leading to unusually cool conditions on Earth. Beginning to plan for adaptation to such a cool period, one which may continue well beyond one 11-year cycle, as did the Little Ice Age, should be a priority for governments. It is global cooling, not warming, that is the major climate threat to the world, especially Canada.

If Patterson is right, only the SUV can save us now. When you consider the possible ravages of a considerably cooler climate, a slightly warming climate seems all but insignificant. I, for one, hope Patterson is wrong.
