It is almost certain that Bush's Republicans and industrialists everywhere alike will pounce on this, citing it as though it was ironclad fact (a.k.a. "sound science") and wielding it as a cudgel to silence their critics, despite much unresolved controversy.

It would, I think, be wise to await further confirming or disconfirming studies of solar irradiance to be conducted, especially since AGW is such a contentious, even heatedly emotional, issue.

I fully agree with you, but even if global warming is not solely caused by human activities I don't think it's a bad idea to seriously start looking for alternative energy sources in any case.

We boil or we run out...  sooner or later.

New Scientist has a nice set of articles critical of global warming skepticism on this page:

http://environment.newscientist.com/channel/earth/dn11462

They discuss, amongst other things, the Martian warming thing.
