Our cosmic climate
Lawrence Solomon – Sep 2, 2011
The 20-year-long global warming debate is in its final stages, the controversy having been settled over whether manmade causes such as carbon dioxide or natural causes such as the Sun dominate climate change on Earth.
First, the global warming doomsayers lost the argument in the court of public opinion — barely one-third of the U.S. public, for example, now believes that human activity can lead to dangerous warming.

The Other Climate Theory
The politics behind cosmic rays
By Anne Jolis – September 7, 2011
In April 1990, Al Gore published an open letter in the New York Times “To Skeptics on Global Warming” in which he compared them to medieval flat-Earthers. He soon became vice president and his conviction that climate change was dominated by man-made emissions went mainstream. Western governments embarked on a new era of anti-emission regulation and poured billions into research that might justify it. As far as the average Western politician was concerned, the debate was over.
But a few physicists weren’t worrying about Al Gore in the 1990s. They were theorizing about another possible factor in climate change: charged subatomic particles from outer space, or “cosmic rays,” whose atmospheric levels appear to rise and fall with the weakness or strength of solar winds that deflect them from the earth. These shifts might significantly impact the type and quantity of clouds covering the earth, providing a clue to one of the least-understood but most important questions about climate. Heavenly bodies might be driving long-term weather trends.

CLOUD Rains on Climate Theory
By James Delingpole on Sep. 02, 2011
“It’s the sun, stupid.” This was the excited conclusion many readers drew from a recent much-read blogpost of mine about the latest results from the CERN laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland. The story concerned a major experiment called CLOUD (Cosmics Leaving Outdoor Droplets) and seemed to confirm everything that the world’s growing band of “skeptics” would dearly love to hear: that the sun, not man-made CO2 is by far the most important factor in “Climate Change.”
Actually, though, the story’s more complicated than that. And, in many ways, more interesting. Yes, the experiment did lend encouraging credence to the theory by the Danish physicist Henrik Svensmark that solar radiation may play a significant role in seeding the clouds which warm (and cool) the planet. But what it didn’t do was prove anything except that this is a promising area and that more research needs to be done.

The sun shines some light on global warming orthodoxy
Lorne Gunter – Sep 1, 2011
Suppose an ossuary – an ancient burial box – containing the skeletal remains of Jesus of Nazareth was discovered. Its contents would prove a challenge to the central fact of Christianity, that Jesus was god made man who ascended to Heaven whole – bones and all – after his crucifixion.
That would be big news, right? The significance of it would be debated in religious circles around the world, as well as in newspapers and on 24/7 news channels. Or it would be, if the remains didn’t come under the control of some Christian organization whose leaders had a vested interest in suppressing reports about the discovery.

Alarmists Got it Wrong, Humans Not Responsible for Climate Change: CERN
By IBTimes Staff Reporter | September 1, 2011
Global warming and climate change are phenomena that broke the bonds of scientific circles to emerge as a matter of debate between “believers” and “skeptics.” Countless studies validating and denying global warming have seen the light of the day, providing fodder for more, often somewhat bitter debates. Within the past month, Nobel Prize winner and leading climate change “alarmist” Al Gore has called those who deny global warming akin to “racists,” and “pseudo-scientists,” and accused media of manipulating evidence about global warming.
Research findings published by none other than CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, in the journal Nature which holds cosmic rays and the Sun, not human activities, responsible for global warming, isn’t exactly what Gore would welcome right now.

Den globale opvarmning hæmmer sig selv
Af Sybille Hildebrandt – 7. september 2011
Arktis varmer langsommere end forventet. Den globale opvarmning føder nogle vejrfænomener, der holder temperaturen nede. Det viser nye omfattende analyser af satellitdata, der netop er fremlagt i Oslo.
