‘Sun not behind global warming’

Actual science has shredded the junk science in the documentary The Great Global Warming Swindle.

Our results show that the observed rapid rise in global mean temperatures seen after 1985 cannot be ascribed to solar variability,” they will report this week in the Proceedings of the Royal Society A.University of Melbourne climate scientist David Karoly commented: “These findings completely refute the allegations made by some pseudo-scientists that all recent global warming is due to solar effects.”

Doubtless this won’t keep rabid free market ideologues from trying to slime actual science again. (Such ideologues understand full well that working to stop global warming means an end to their rapacious version of capitalism.) Rumors that they are joining forces with the Flat Earth Society are as yet unfounded.
