Lawrence Solomon: Science getting settled
New, convincing evidence indicates global warming is caused by cosmic rays and the sun — not humans
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. (Financial Post)

A paper published this week finds that cloudiness over Russia has increased during the period of 2001-2010 compared to 1991-2000. Interesting in light of the corresponding global cooling since 2001, Svensmark’s cosmic ray theory of cloud formation, the rise of cosmic rays since 2001 to record levels, and the concomitant decrease in solar activity.

“The great tragedy of Science: the slaying of a beautiful hypothesis by an ugly fact.” Thomas Huxley
Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) is the hypothesis being slain by an ugly fact. AGW has dominated world attention for thirty years because proponents used it to push a political agenda. Normally, scientists perform their natural role as skeptics, disproving a new hypothesis. Some scientists were complicit in thwarting the scientific method by participating in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the political vehicle set up to put all the focus on CO2. They, with their political cohorts, used the bureaucrats in each national weather agency through the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) to divert, downplay or even attack any person or fact that threatened their agenda. Most threatening were claims that they ignored the major climate driver, the Sun. (Tim Ball)
If you think Solar Cycle 24 is weaker and still progressing slower than previous solar cycles? You are correct. This is a comparison of Solar Cycles 21, 22, 23 and 24 so far.
