|Cosmics Leaving OUtdoor Droplets|
Lawrence Sullivan writes in The Financial Post that we now have scientific proof that the Sun controls the Earth's climate:
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.Dr. Svenmark's theory was derived for correlation of sunspot activity, solar winds and cloud formations in our Heliosphere. In 2007, Danish scientists launched a project known as SKY using a high energy particle accelerator beam, which according to this paper, first confirmed the Svenmark hypothesis.
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.
Update: This National Post editorial that I just linked succinctly describes the impact of the sun and clouds on the Earth's climate and it rightly laments the political influence that has CERN scientists downplaying their own successful scientific experiment. To paraphrase President James A. Garfield: “He who controls the money supply of a world controls the world.” Government funding seems to be more important to scientists (especially those chasing the new field of climate science) than the immediate economic impact that would result from declaring the magnificence of this proof of the Sun's influence. Man-made global warming has now been disproved.
