Climate change sceptics slapped down in new study

British scientist have completed a new study in an attempt to validate or refute claims the suns natural cycle is causing global warming not mankind's carbon releases, which was the major claim in the documentary The Great Global Warming Swindle.

The Results

Over the course of one of the Sun's natural 11-year cycles, there was a weak correlation between cosmic ray intensity and cloud cover - but cosmic ray variability could at the very most explain only a quarter of the changes in cloudiness.

And for the following cycle, no correlation was found.

The study also gives scientist an upper limit of how much the solar cycle is effecting climate change which should improve overall climate modeling. Furthermore, debunking one of the main claims of climate change sceptics supports our need to continue efforts to reduce carbon emmisions

Of course this study will be denounced as flawed by those who refuse to accept mans responsibility in global warming, it will also probably spawn new conspiracies and brand new theories why all the evil "Greenies" are wrong.

Maybe I could convince them to blame it on cats, Rap music, show tunes and brussel sprouts, all things I could live without.Recommend this Post

AGW is concensus product, so it's refutable.
Everybody have their own agenda, inclusively Al Gore.
