More evidence from Nasa, from Astrophysicist Piers Corbyn, from Dr H Abdussamatov that it is the sun that is the dominant player in the global climate. The new Nasa paper recently published titled "The Effects of Solar Variability on Earth`s Climate" is most revealing. One ofthe authors Dr Greg Koop of the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics at the University of Colorado, overturned mainstream climate science thinking by declaring that even slight changes in solar output have a considerable impact on climate. Kopp said " even typical short term variations of 0.1% in incident irradiance exceed all other energy sourcescombined". This massive change by Nasa shows that a paradigm shift is now in full swing and the discredited claims of man made global warming alarmists are being tossed aside at the highest levels of government.
London`s own Astrophysicist Piers Corbyn of WeatherAction.com and Fellow of the Royal Meteorological Society has challenged Professor Joanna Haigh to
1. Produce observational evidence with real observed data(or accepted proxies thereof) from the last hundreds, thousands or million years that CO2 changes in the real atmosphere drive world temperature changes.(No answer from Professor Haigh as the simple truth is they don`t!)
2. Produce observational evidence and physics based argument that refute our knowledge that the 22 year cycle of variation in world temperatures is driven by the 22 year magnetic Hale cycle of the sun.
Top Russian solar physicist Dr H Abdussamatov Director of Space Research at the Polkovo Observatorey St Petersburg and Director of the Russian segment of the International Space Station agrees with both the new Nasa paper and with Piers Corbyn. In his classic paper
"Bicentennial decrease of the TSI leading to unbalanced thermal budget of the earth and the Little Ice Age" Abdussamatov predicts that due to the declining bicentennial component of the total solar irradiance(TSI) and the decline of the 11 year solar cycle(which are not being compensated by a decrease in the emission to space of the earth thermal energy) the earth is quickly heading into a new Little Ice Age due to start 2013/2014 and lasting well into the 22nd century! No more global warming this century!!
