Twilight Zone - Global Cooling

Remember that Twilight Zone episode where Rod Sterling tried to warn us about global cooling by showing a world where people were dying from excessive heat as the Earth moved towards the sun only to discover in the end that it was a dream?  It was really an escapist dream as they were actually moving away from the sun and the decreasing frozen temperatures were guiding them to an icy destruction.

Welcome to the Twilight Zone that is our Media/Scientific community.  Can the scientists get past their stipends and stop worrying about their social circles and provide some answers?  This report seems very important and  if a media outlet other than Fox didn't cover it, how would you know?

A missing jet stream, fading spots, and slower activity near the poles say that our Sun is heading for a rest period even as it is acting up for the first time in years, according to scientists at the National Solar Observatory (NSO) and the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL).

“This is highly unusual and unexpected,” Dr. Frank Hill, associate director of the NSO’s Solar Synoptic Network, said of the results. “But the fact that three completely different views of the Sun point in the same direction is a powerful indicator that the sunspot cycle may be going into hibernation.”'s Joe Bastardi
