Heresy: sun warms earth!

No. No, it can’t be. It just can’t be.

Some researchers believe that the solar cycle influences global climate changes. They attribute recent warming trends to cyclic variation. Skeptics, though, argue that there’s little hard evidence of a solar hand in recent climate changes.

Now, a new research report from a surprising source may help to lay this skepticism to rest. A study from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland looking at climate data over the past century has concluded that solar variation has made a significant impact on the Earth’s climate. The report concludes that evidence for climate changes based on solar radiation can be traced back as far as the Industrial Revolution.

IANAS, of course, but I’m going to go out on a limb here and make the radical assertion that it’s been going on a good bit longer than that.

While the NASA study acknowledged the sun’s influence on warming and cooling patterns, it then went badly off the tracks. Ignoring its own evidence, it returned to an argument that man had replaced the sun as the cause current warming patterns. Like many studies, this conclusion was based less on hard data and more on questionable correlations and inaccurate modeling techniques.

Well, there are plenty of religious folks at NASA, after all. And having the central tenets of one’s faith disproved by science has never been an easy thing for the devout to accept.

The climate-change religion will sooner or later go the way of all other superstition and sophistry. But in the meantime, any of you liberal bedwetters up for an entertaining and edifying renewal of the flat-earth debate? Or that eclipses are caused by a great snake-god swallowing the sun?

Hey, just trying to cheer you idiots up a little, that’s all.

  1. Its cold in the winter and hot in the summer and it alternates in spring and fall were 93 million miles away from the sun and the sun is whats cuasing moonbat greens to go wacky SQUAWK SQUAWK SQUAWK HYUK,HYUK,HYUK,

  2. /liberalbedwetter on

    I don’t wish to be sarcastic, but here is a problem you need to explain in order to be correct.

    The Temperature of the Earth over the last 4 or so billion years has remained, on average, fairly constant. However, the solar activity of the Sun (a main sequence star) has increased (significantly, like 30%) over that time.

    Interestingly enough, one sees that this is so because CO2 concentrations have gone down, significantly, over that same time span.

    Example; I believe it was about 60-80 million years ago there was a very hot period, however, the Sun (one would assume) put out LESS energy. CO2 concentrations were very high, like 700-800 CC. We are are at ~380 CC now.

    Another example is Mars and Venus, our fellow terrestrial planets in the solar system. Both of their atmospheres are mostly CO2, and warm their surfaces to temperatures A LOT hotter then they would otherwise be. (Teh Greenhouse effect).

    The article said that “The fluctuations in the solar cycle impacts Earth’s global temperature by about 0.1 degree Celsius, slightly hotter during solar maximum and cooler during solar minimum”- However, we have seen a lot more warming than 0.1 C (0.5 C is what one guy said, I think it is more like 0.8 C).

    Its interesting you make such blatant charges against the world’s (yes, I did say the world’s) scientists; every major developed country’s academies of science has accepted global warming (also called climate change because the climate changes from the warming).

    Oh, and for the record, I am sick of everyone saying anyone, EVER, believed in a flat Earth. Aristotle and other Greeks proved it was not flat. Even John Mandeville in the 1350s said the Earth was round; everyone (educated) believed it was, it is a common misconception.

    So ya, to prove global warming wrong you have to answer
    (a)Why has the temperature of the Earth remained fairly constant over its history while solar activity has gone up
    (b)Why does increased CO2 NOT warm the climate
    (c)Is the solar forcing responsible for all 0.5 C or whatever degree increases

    Have a nice day.

  3. Dear LiberalBedwetter,

    Perhaps the cooling of the Earth’s core? Lots of people tend to forget that we are warmed by the Sun AND by the earth.
