No one seems to know what caused the 1970s cool down.
This is rich.
Just more "just more it was man's fault" and now "it never happened".

Scott Adams has a video up on Youtube titled Scott Adams talks about parade persuasion, Pelosi, Uranium One, and climate models. I'm listening right now, he burns through the other subjects in 11 minutes and spends the rest of the 37 minutes on climate models. I'll have to listen again, but I think it's pretty good.

[spoiler] His conclusion is that humans are cave people and with Virtual Reality and a Vitamin D Machine the New Golden Age will be underground.

Huh? What are you talking about? We know what caused it - particulates in the air.

I am starting to read some articles about a new solar grand minimum approaching similar to the little ice age of 1645.

People insist scientists know exactly what causes autism. When I ask them to enlighten me they mumble incoherently.

I've never heard anyone, scientists or otherwise, purport to know what causes autism.

Autism represents the forward evolution of the species.

High functioning autists are currently dismantling the Deep State via pseudocode posts on 8chan. Shia Lebeouf was just a warm-up.

Some are instantiated with heave propensity to autism, those with bad/misunderstanding parents are turned into vegetables.

Mumble, mumble....

People rant against those against vaccines and I ask "So, what does cause autism?"

I imagine that many people never ask this question, but then again, most people do not have siblings with autism.

Yet...

But I like how the believers think everything is man's fault.
Solar minimum?

Over what time frame do you suppose an eleven year solar cycle causes changes in the climate? Through a multi-decade spike, or an oscillation within the frame of that cycle?

Same question for the oft-cited Milkanovitch cycles... over what time period should the change occur? Obviously not in that same sharp multi-decade spike, but in a smooth cyclical twenty six thousand year wave, right?

The effects of these cycles are known. And have been studied. And the current warming trend is decoupled from both. In fact, the effects of solar variance are so small as to often be lost in the noise caused by volcanic eruptions and carbon-emission led warming.

Uh, Neil and I both answered this before you posted. If "no one" includes the entire climate science community, yes, you may be right.

Partially genetic or epigenetic. Of course, we do not know the EXACT switches that cause it, but it is widely recognized as faulty brain wiring and neurotransmitter imbalance. There are signs now (this was my morning reading a while ago) that it shares genetic markers with schizophrenia, and signs that some cases are misdiagnosed schiz.

Which doesn't surprise me, because when they expanded the scope of ASD under DSM IV, everyone and their mother was "diagnosing" new cases of autism... which fueled the "autism epidemic" in mass media, borne of faulty statistical comparisons and the fact that once mild, undiagnosed cases were now brought into the spotlight.

Yes, vaccines didn't cause the "epidemic". Media alarmism and over-zealous diagnosticians did.
