For a long time it’s been suspected that the Sun played a role here, too.During the period of 1645 to 1715 there were few or no sunspots, a time called the Maunder Minimum. If you're looking for a particular comic, the search engine can help you out!

Even more obviously, if you’ve been reading my blog for more than about ten seconds, is that a lot of climate change deniers like to point to the Sun as being the culprit in the rapid warming of the Earth over the past century.

However, even before this study was announced, we knew that’s dead wrong: there is nothing to link the Sun to the current rise in temperatures.

My supervisor, who has to travel with me on occasion, is male and close to my age, so that makes it worse.

I have no issue with anyone who doesn’t object to this like I do. I searched your site but can’t find much that fits this case. It’s a normal part of work life to travel and dine with colleagues who might be of the opposite sex.

It’s been thought that the cooling started around then, but it’s been hard to pin down until now.
