Climate Alarmists Insist That The
Sun Is "Not Linked" To Climate Change

Early last year, scientists produced ridiculous claims showing that modern-day climate change is not caused by changes in the Sun's activity.

The research contradicted thousands of reputable scholars who have documented evidence statistically correlating sun spots and cosmic rays to changes in the Earth's clouds and temperature.

"The variations in solar activity are irrefutably connected to cosmic rays and their intensity and changes to Earth's climate," said weather specialist Marina Stojanac.

But based on nefarious science, UK scientists insist there has been no link between cosmic rays and cloudiness.

They presented their findings in the Institute of Physics journal, Environmental Research Letters, the University of Lancaster team.

Terry Sloan said "the IPCC has got it right, so we had better carry on trying to cut carbon emissions."

Danish scientist Henrik Svensmark at the Danish National Space Center (DNSC), had established in several works including a documentary called The Great Global Warming Swindle, how the sun directly affects climate.

"If he is right, then we are going down the wrong path of taking all these expensive measures to cut carbon emissions."

Cosmic rays are deflected away from Earth by our planet's magnetic field, and by the solar wind - streams of electrically charged particles coming from the Sun.

According to Svensmark, when the solar wind is weak, more cosmic rays penetrate to Earth.

That creates more charged particles in the atmosphere, which in turn induces more clouds to form, cooling the climate.

The planet warms up when the Sun's output is strong.

Professor Sloan's team investigated the link by looking for periods in time and for places on the Earth which had documented weak or strong cosmic ray arrivals, and seeing if that affected the cloudiness observed in those locations or at those times. The team's work found no "convincing" evidence that the Sun affects climate.

Dr Svensmark himself was unimpressed by Sloan's findings.

"Terry Sloan has simply failed to understand how cosmic rays work on clouds," he told BBC News.

"He predicts much bigger effects than we would do, as between the equator and the poles, and after solar eruptions; then, because he doesn't see those big effects, he says our story is wrong, when in fact we have plenty of evidence to support it."
