Imagine – that nuclear fire ball at the heart of our solar system, which happens to be 1,333,000 times larger than the Earth (in volume), actually has more effect on our climate than a marginal gas making up less than 3% of our atmosphere. I mean, even the oceans – which cover 75% of the world’s surface – should have more effect on global temperature than little ‘ol CO2 wafting around in the air! News is breaking today on a study that shows cloud formation is driven more by the cosmos (that infinite beyond our small planet has wandered through for billions of years) than that magical marginal gas Al Gore (self proclaimed genius on all matters scientific) has become fixated on.
CERN’s 8,000 scientists may not be able to find the hypothetical Higgs boson, but they have made an important contribution to climate physics, prompting climate models to be revised.
The first results from the lab’s CLOUD (“Cosmics Leaving OUtdoor Droplets”) experiment published in Nature today confirm that cosmic rays spur the formation of clouds through ion-induced nucleation.
This towering physical relationship between Earth, Sun and the cosmos was actually under debate by a bunch of PhDs who clearly were over-thinking things and somehow ($$$$’s) got obsessed with CO2 while ignoring the nuclear furnace that is our Sun – as well as the rest of the known universe. How could anyone be so egocentric to think CO2 was overpowering forces at play that dwarf the human imagination? Clearly, some of these PhDs need to cut back on their addiction to crappy statistics and re-experience reality more. Those computer screens are not reality.
The bottom line for the AGW crowd and their silly little models? Scrap them and start over:
Climate models will have to be revised, confirms CERN in supporting literature (pdf):
“[I]t is clear that the treatment of aerosol formation in climate models will need to be substantially revised, since all models assume that nucleation is caused by these vapours [sulphuric acid and ammonia] and water alone.
We have known for a decade now that the climate models were so much GIGO (garbage in, garbage out), since they could not predict the temperature response to CO2 for the last 20 years (plenty of time to verify the AGW claim). Facing the fact the IPCC, NASA GIS, CRU and a host of other bandwagon revelers were all wrong is tough for many. So tough they go into deep denial and hurl angry outbursts at those who have not drunk the Green Kool-Aid. But reality will prevail over bad theory every time.
Oh well, Darwin was right you know. Not everyone succeeds.
