Deniers Denied

One of the central counters to man-made global warming has been completely discredited in a new study:
A new scientific study concludes that changes in the Sun's output cannot be causing modern-day climate change.

It shows that for the last 20 years, the Sun's output has declined, yet temperatures on Earth have risen.

Dr Lockwood initiated the study partially in response to the TV documentary The Great Global Warming Swindle, broadcast on Britain's Channel Four earlier this year, which featured the cosmic ray hypothesis.

"All the graphs they showed stopped in about 1980, and I knew why, because things diverged after that," he told the BBC News website.

"You can't just ignore bits of data that you don't like," he said.

"This paper reinforces the fact that the warming in the last 20 to 40 years can't have been caused by solar activity," said Dr Piers Forster from Leeds University, a leading contributor to this year's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) assessment of climate science.

In the grand scheme, this confirmation probably won't matter to the hardcore denier crowd, they will just attach themselves to another flimsy theory. Having said that, it did snow in Buenos Aires, Argentina, for the first time since 1918- clearly another signal that the analysis of mainstream science is misguided.

Another 'scientific' study has.... blah, blah, blah.... Who cares.

Regular people are beginning to understand the contradictions and absurdities of 'climate science'.

The jig is up, only morons would hand over their wallets to any of these people.

The Jig, fellow anonymous, lies soley within the flea brained, of which I would nominate you as leader.....no, wait...the leader has to be....Steve The Denier....oh, I know he's had epiphany but he's only pretending...so that he can have a majority.....

I'd say the morons are the ones who refuse to believe, who don't give a damn for the next generation.

Even if climate change isn't true and we all know it is - we have to clean up the air and water, find away to prevent the severe weather conditions all over the world.

I think the moron is the one calling others morons.

"Regular people"? Maybe you should go outside, because you don't seem to have a clue.

Don't forget that "regular people" is code for hammer sack stoopid Conservatives.

So the anonymous pencil neck is right.
