New Scientific Study Proves Solar Activity Impacts Climate
Data provides evidence to back up theory previously rubbished by warming alarmists

New scientific research has demonstrated that solar variations have had major effects on the climate of the Earth as recently as 2,000 years ago.

The research, conducted by a team of scientists from the Universities of Ohio, Minnesota, and Texas at Arlington ties a decline in solar radiation to a drop in temperatures and diminished levels of rainfall.

The scientists calculated the data using stalagmites that formed over thousands of years. Precise fluctuations in the Earth's climate were recorded in the composition of the cave formations.

The new study also provides further evidence for a 1500-year Climate cycle, the evidence for which was first discovered in ice core data.

The Headline Experimental Link Found Between Sun and Climate may seem ludicrous, but the data gleaned from the new study will go some way to countering claims that human CO2 emissions are the dominating influence on the Earth's climate.

Global warming enthusiasts have sought to dismiss past research linking solar activity to changes in the climate of the planet.

In reality, warming was observed throughout the solar system during the 1980s and 1990s, at a time when the sun was at its brightest. Since the end of the century there has been a significant drop in sunspot activity.

Astronomers who count sunspots have announced that 2008 is now the "blankest year" of the Space Age, with 200 spotless days, the most since 1954.

"Sunspot counts are at a 50-year low," says solar physicist David Hathaway of the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center. "We're experiencing a deep minimum of the solar cycle."

Astronomers' forecasts for the rest of the year indicate that 2008 could pass 290 spotless, the most for almost a century.

In addition, NASA held a media teleconference last week to discuss data from the joint NASA and European Space Agency Ulysses mission that reveals the sun’s solar wind is at a 50-year low. The space agency has stressed that "the sun’s current state could result in changing conditions in the solar system."

This lack of solar activity has coincided with evidence of a cooling trend across the world.

Earlier this year, China experienced its coldest winter in 100 years while northeast America was hit by record snow levels, Sydney experienced its coldest August for 60 years and Britain suffered its coldest April in decades. African countries such as Kenya and South Africa have seen rare snow fall and ice storms as temperatures have plummeted.

Rapid decrease in solar activity is an event that has always preceded so called mini-ice age periods throughout history, no wonder then that many scientists are predicting prolonged global cooling.
