Global warming??? Climate
By Thomas Laprade

Recent research by Henrik Svensmark and his group at the Danish
National Space Center points to the real cause of the recent
warming trend. In a series of experiments on the formation of
clouds, these scientists have shown that fluctuations in the
Sun's output cause the observed changes in the Earth's temperature.
In the past, scientists believed the fluctuations in the Sun's
output were too small to cause the observed amount of temperature
change, hence the need to look for other causes like carbon
dioxide. However, these new experiments show that fluctuations
in the Sun's output are in fact large enough, so there is no
longer a need to resort to carbon dioxide as the cause of the
recent warming trend.
The discovery of the real cause of the recent increase in the
Earth's temperature is indeed a convenient truth. It means humans
are not to blame for the increase. It also means there is absolutely
nothing we can, much less do, to correct the situation.
