Global warming caused by sunspot cycles: what?

So I thought it was pretty bad when I got junk email about global warming being caused by sunspots. However, that pales in comparison when I hear that someone managed to get an article in the Melbourne Age. The sun is at the end of one of it’s 11 year sunspot cycles, true, but the effect of changes in the insolation due to changes in this cycle are miniscule, about 0.07% according to these guys. At least this guy has a sense of humour… and sums things up pretty well.

Anyway, if the sunspot cycle is 11 years, why haven’t I had an ice age in my lifetime?
