It’s the sun, stupid!

Yet another recently published study, this time by scientists at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, points to the sun as a key factor in the determination of the earth’s temperature (as opposed to man and his puny activities).  As the summary from Investors.com website succinctly puts it (emphases added):

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.

Please note the number of scientists and institutes involved in the study.  This is not one lone rogue quack.

Yep!  Not only does it not fit their agenda, it flatly contradicts their agenda.  Therefore, they aren’t going to let on that they even know about it.  Which is yet another example of their bias.

Of course, the concept that the sun plays a major role in earth’s temperature is not new, and has been considered a “no-brainer” in the past, at least until AGW advocates started trying to convince us otherwise.  One would think that, being a “no-brainer,” this should be easy for neuronally-challenged liberals to grasp.  But no, they’d rather stifle any debate and declare themselves the victors and therefore the ones to decide the policy.


The level of their desperation is clearly seen in their increasingly shrill rhetoric and absurd denunciations of all who differ from them.
