And it’s not the kind of news that Al Gore, or his wallet, will welcome.Apparently sunshine is the cause of global warming. (H/T James Delingpole)
Sadly, rays of sunshine don’t make a great deal of noise, leastwise when the MSM doesn’t like the tale.
The science is now all-but-settled on global warming, convincing new evidence demonstrates, but Al Gore, the IPCC and other global warming doomsayers won’t be celebrating. The new findings point to cosmic rays and the sun — not human activities — as the dominant controller of climate on Earth.
The research, published with little fanfare this week in the prestigious journal Nature, comes from über-prestigious CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, one of the world’s largest centres for scientific research involving 60 countries and 8,000 scientists at more than 600 universities and national laboratories. CERN is the organization that invented the World Wide Web, that built the multi-billion dollar Large Hadron Collider, and that has now built a pristinely clean stainless steel chamber that precisely recreated the Earth’s atmosphere.
In this chamber, 63 CERN scientists from 17 European and American institutes have done what global warming doomsayers said could never be done — demonstrate that cosmic rays promote the formation of molecules that in Earth’s atmosphere can grow and seed clouds, the cloudier and thus cooler it will be. Because the sun’s magnetic field controls how many cosmic rays reach Earth’s atmosphere (the stronger the sun’s magnetic field, the more it shields Earth from incoming cosmic rays from space), the sun determines the temperature on Earth.
Short form — the source of heat in the solar system is the source of global warming. The response from the doom-sayers and hucksters has been predictable: the scientific results were neutered, the report edited and the potential truth of the matter obfuscated in the bureaucrat-ese. Sadly, the religion of global-warming isn’t ready to address the science.
