Sun's activity not to blame for climate change

A 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. It also shows that modern temperatures are not determined by the Sun's effect on cosmic rays, as has been claimed. Writing in the Royal Society's journal Proceedings A, the researchers say cosmic rays may have affected climate in the past, but not the present. http://www.pubs.royalsoc.ac.uk/index.cfm?page=1086 http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/6290228.stm http://www.theregister.co.uk/2007/07/11/solar_activity_climate/ http://www.swissinfo.org/eng/front/detail/Greenhouse_sceptics_disproved_by_solar_study.html?siteSect=105&sid=8013719&cKey=1184173580000 http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2007/jul/11/climatechange.climatechange1
