A Quiet Concern

A new cause for concern may put global warming fears aside as some meteorologists say we could instead face a period of global cooling.

Meteorologists say the sun is the dimmest it's been in nearly a century. They believe that after three decades of abnormally warm temperatures, the Earth may be taking a turn toward tremendous cooling.
