Man may be innocent, after all. Jasper Kirkby of CERN explains new research into whether solar activity has caused cosmic rays to indirectly warm the earth:
This talk presents an overview of the palaeoclimatic evidence for solar/cosmic ray forcing of the climate, and reviews the possible physical mechanisms. These will be investigated in the CLOUD experiment which begins to take data at the CERN PS later this year.
Galactic cosmic rays the cause of climate change? I don’t think so.
Svensmark’s failure to comment on the lack of a clear and significant long-term downward GCR trend, and how changes in GCR can explain a global warming without containing such a trend, is one major weakness of his argument that GCR is responsible for recent global warming.
