How much of that blame/cause belongs to each variable?
My point is that magnetic variance can be taken out of the equation.
It is not to blame for recent changes, and the report suggest it won't have much effect if it does occur.

We may be flogging the horse, along with volcanoes and who knows what. Maybe the volcanoes hurt the horse more than we do - but we're flogging it nonetheless. We may not be the single cause that kills it, but we do hurt it.
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

Investors woes:
"In hindsight, I should have placed a bet on the horse that won the race"
"In hindsight, I should have bet more on that horse"
