Shock, horror as Wikipedia turns Denier!

A climate realist article from Wikipedia on the sun
Here are some excepts:
Energy from the Sun, in the form of sunlight, supports almost all life on Earth via photosynthesis, and drives the Earth’s climate and weather.

The solar cycle has a great influence on space weather, and is a significant influence on the Earth’s climate since luminosity has a direct relationship with magnetic activity. Solar activity minima tend to be correlated with colder temperatures, and longer than average solar cycles tend to be correlated with hotter temperatures. In the 17th century, the solar cycle appears to have stopped entirely for several decades; very few sunspots were observed during this period. During this era, which is known as the Maunder minimum or Little Ice Age, Europe experienced very cold temperatures. Earlier extended minima have been discovered through analysis of tree rings and also appear to have coincided with lower-than-average global temperatures.
The sun, a major driver of the earth’s climate? Surely not!
Wikipedia, you Climate Heretic/Holocaust Denier/Clearly in the pay of Big Oil!
Read the full article here, but be quick, I imagine it’s only a matter of time before it gets changed.
