I think they're seriously wrong
"The notion that we are heading for a new Little Ice Age if the sun actually entered a Grand Minimum (a period of almost no sunspots) is wrong," said Georg Feulner, lead author of the study at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research.
Despite a deep winter chill in parts of Europe and North America, January 2010 was the equal second warmest January worldwide since records began in the 19th century, according to NASA data. The warmest January was in 2007.
"World temperatures are likely to rise by between 3.7 and 4.5 degrees Celsius by 2100 if greenhouse gas emissions keep building up -- far more than the impact of known shifts in solar output, the study showed."
"The sun has gone through four Grand Minima since the 13th century, including the Maunder Minimum from 1645-1715 that overlapped with the Little Ice Age. The Thames River froze in London, for instance, during a "Great Frost" of 1683-84."
What can I say? Here are a few headlines from just the last 45 days.
