Evidence Accumlating that Global Warming Driven by Sun
Posted by: McQ on Saturday, November 08, 2008

While the politicians move ahead (or stay behind, you decide) considering how to combat AGW and impose a "cap and trade" system on a faltering economy, you may want to read through this:
Man-made carbon dioxide is generally thought to produce global warming. However, in a recent article entitled "Does Carbon Dioxide Drive Global Warming?" I presented several major reasons why carbon dioxide is probably not the primary cause. But if carbon dioxide is not the cause, then what is? Evidence is accumulating that cosmic rays associated with fluctuations in the sun's electromagnetic field may be what drives global warming. A new theory called cosmoclimatology that proposes a natural mechanism for climate fluctuations has been developed by Henrik Svensmark, Head of the Center for Sun-Climate Research at the Danish National Space Center.
Yes he said "theory" (AGW is a theory as well). But he also said "evidence is accumulating". Any guess as to how open-minded the consensus crowd will be to this or any new evidence which would tend to discredit their theory? Espeically with their guru's party now coming into power with him calling for something called "sustainable capitalism?"

Unfortunately this "research" is published at the "Institute for Creation Research". Any "science" coming out of an anti-scientific body like this must be taken with a huge grain of salt.

Well obviously, then, given the most important aspect of all of this is where it is published, it will easily be taken apart by "science".

Go for it.

My quick read through the article shows nothing to dissuade me that his theory is based in science.

No, the linked article is published is published there. The research is performed and published elsewhere (ex. Physical Review Letters), but you wouldn’t know that since you took the narrow-minded route of intellectual laziness.

Perhaps the Institute of Creation Research may not be the most scientifically compelling institution, but then again, there’s undoubtedly great pressure on the liberal illuminati not to report anything that would conflict with Obama’s global warming program. So because right-wingers have nothing to lose, they just may be the ones to listen to—and go ahead and do your homework. It can’t hurt.

Well, i guess that won’t stop the big Zero from spending trillions to fix what ain’t broke. But that is what he is about isn’t it.

I’ve got to agree with the first post. Right message, absolutely the wrong messenger.

I understand it’s an uphill battle to get this kind of opinion and papers about the causes of ’global warming’ out, but people with an interest and background in science are gonna click on that link and then close it out because of the position on creationism. That’s exactly what I did.

Messengers don’t validate or invalidate messages - they just deliver them. It’s up to the individual to be smart enough to figure that out.

I just today read a comment on this very topic at RealClimate.org.:

". . if [you are] thinking about GCR-cloud connections [the Svensmark theory], [modelling] is being done (it requires a full aerosol model including all the different modes of formation, accumulation, growth and impacts on clouds), but all estimates so far are that changes in ionisation makes only a negligible difference. This is of course completely independent of critiques of the statistical work put forward by some, and the plain fact that with no trends in GCR, it can’t be related to recent warming." You can find more detail about the critiques of Svensmark at RealClimate.

On the other hand, the consensus view of global warming rests on *many thousands* of peer-reviewed papers, so don’t be too quick to dismiss the mainstream, regardless of the views of the Creationists.

Hey Kevin - if we’re going to play the "website" game, RealClimate doesn’t have the best "scientific" reputation in the world.

Additionally, peer reviewed doesn’t mean "right" if the premise is wrong to begin with.
