The author refutes the suggestion of former U.S. President Bill Clinton that the U.S. economy has to slowdown to reduce greenhouse emissions and save the planet from global warming. He reveals that contrary to claims that the planet's temperature is getting warmer, the planet is actually experiencing abnormally cold weather. He cites a growing body of research that concluded changes in sunspot activity directly correlate with temperature changes on Earth.
