More bad news for the Global Warming crowd

The paper, published in the Journal of Atmospheric and Solar-Terrestrial Physics focused on the period 1844-1960 (but extended at least one graph back to 1600) and finds our current warming period is not that different from earlier episodes and that the increase in solar activity in the last 400 years explains the warming, without any need to invoke a man-made enhanced greenhouse hypothesis.
Ah, but this time it's different.  Srlsy.  I mean, Greenpeace said so.

But really, how on earth are you supposed to get any sweet, sweet research grants saying nothing to see here folks, move along?
