What would we do without Experts? (slogan shamelessly stolen from James Taranto-Opinion Journal)

Sun Energy Output At Over 1,000 Year Peak
Sami Solanki, Professor at the Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich Switzerland, says the Sun has been burning more brightly over the last 60 years than over the previous 1090 years.

“We have to acknowledge that the Sun is in a changed state. It is brighter than it was a few hundred years ago, and this brightening started relatively recently – in the last 100 to 150 years. We expect it to have an impact on global warming,” he told swissinfo. "
You see the sun, which warms the planet, might be expected to have an impact on GLOBAL WARMING. One might also imagine the sun having an impact on GLOBAL MELTING someday as well. Just so you know.
  Man, I guess those guys back in England during the Crusades had some nice Solar Thermometers around to measure and record accurate solar temperature readings.
 I guess we should all listen to the experts and, um, I don't know, block the sun for a while?
  Maybe that'll help. That and more beer.
