Too right the link was broken!
I've never heard of the "Space and Science Research Center" and it seems that neither has anyone else, this guy sums it up best:
Looks like a hoax to me http://tomnelson.blogspot.com/2008/0...oax-to-me.html
...Essentially every single aspect of that website looks bogus to me. No papers or other staff people are mentioned; "Casey's" email address looks bogus, etc etc.
.....If the above claim were true, doesn't it seem likely that the site would provide some actual names?
SSRC has on its staff of consulting scientists, some of the world's best known experts in the field of solar physics pertaining to the research into the matter of the coming major solar minimum.
Doing some Googling, I found the alleged research center's address and fax number at an unrelated website for what's supposed to be an investment company. I also found that the "research center's" phone number matches that of an attorney at an unrelated address.

The ?Space and Science Research Center? and John Casey should not be relied on for valid research. I know of Mr. Casey and have checked his credentials and they are not legitimate. He has tried to recruit even me into his band of ?experts?. I would not place any value on the ramblings of the press release.
You appear to have very limited abilities of discernment Derek and are happy to peddle any old spurious garbage that matches your preconceived ideas.
You claim I deleted an entire post of yours - not true.
You are at best misguided, at worst you know exactly what you are doing and revel in the rhetoric and banter regadless of truth/honesty or accuracy.
Have a nice vacation.
