Science: Experiments performed by a European nuclear research group indicate that the sun, not man, determines Earth's temperature. Somewhere, Al Gore just shuddered as an unseasonably cool breeze blows by.
The results from an experiment to mimic Earth's atmosphere by CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, tell researchers that the sun has a significant effect on our planet's temperature. Its magnetic field acts as a gateway for cosmic rays, which play a large role in cloud formation.
Consequently, when the sun's magnetic field allows cosmic rays to seed cloud cover, temperatures are cooler. When it restricts cloud formation by deflecting cosmic rays away from Earth, temperatures go up.
Or, as the London Telegraph's James Delingpole delicately put it:
"It's the sun, stupid."
This new finding of 63 scientists from 17 European and U.S. institutes from an experiment that's been ongoing since 2009 is, if we may paraphrase Vice President Joe Biden, a big deal. Which is exactly why the mainstream media, with so much invested in global warming hysteria, is letting last week's announcement from CERN pass like a brief summer shower, ignoring it.
Even CERN's own director general, Rolf-Dieter Heuer, is trying to avoid the meaning of the findings.
He told Germany's Die Welt Online that he's "asked the colleagues to present the results clearly, but not to interpret them. That would go immediately into the highly political arena of the climate change debate."

Maybe that is why it always seems to get cold at night?
The truth will come out sooner or later.
The truth comes out; the sun is racist!
Don’t worry Algore will counter this with something brilliant or his head will explode ,stay tuned
The sun? Really? Who knew? Wonders never cease. What great discoveries must lie just over the horizon.
Well, duh. A light goes on.
A “No ****, Sherlock” Ping.
There are anthropogenic means of seeding cloud cover by vegetation management using animals, the lack of which can have climatic effects on a continental scale. But the greenies are CAUSING that problem, so it will go unstudied and unmentioned.
And if you notice there has been a recent push for Climate Change (formally called Global Warming, name changed to protect the guilty) and push back on us rebel’s who want to see the science!
It would be nice if references to the research talked more about the... research.
Anyway, this isn’t really a “no duh”, this has to do with magnetic fields allowing cosmic rays to seed the formation of clouds. This is CLOUD formation we are talking about. A big big deal when it comes to adjusting the average temperature or a long period of time say over the course of a century. Depending on the activity of the sun and it’s magnetic fields, we may see more or less cloud cover over decades which pretty much sums up ALL of the upward or downward trends.
This is awesome science since it gives us another way to predict temps being over or under median and explains why the earth actually sees temp differences other than the simple seasons every year.
In short, it is NOT mainly from anything happening on or under the earth. Some cataclysmic events like massive volcanoes may alter things for a few years at a time, but it’s the SUN that is driving cloud formation.
I thought “Green Fiction” was in regard to the Aliens landing and kicking our A**es.
Let's let the University of East Anglia's Ian "Fudge Factor" Harris work on that data until it agrees with the settled scripture, I mean science.
In other news from CERN: still no hint of a Higgs boson at the expected energy. (Heh! heh! heh!)
Okay, in a way it’s irrelevant to the thread, but in another way it’s relevant. String theory, like AGW, seems to be an example of the “madness of crowds” in a scientific context.
Note also: the correlation between solar activity and global temperature has been described numerous times in the recent past - check out some of the graphs in this paper from 1991:
Obama told us he would stop the seas from rising, he FINALLY has something to run on!
