Scientists: Sun is not a factor in our climate change
Story: Scientists have produced further compelling evidence showing that modern-day climate change is not caused by changes in the Sun's activity. The research contradicts a favoured theory of climate "sceptics" that changes in cosmic rays coming to Earth determine cloudiness and temperature. The idea is that variations in solar activity affect cosmic ray intensity. But Lancaster University scientists found there has been no significant link between them in the last 20 years. Over the last 20 years, solar activity has been rising, which should have led to a drop in global temperatures if the theory was correct.

Once again, Scientists have laid to rest the notion by climate skeptics that our climate change is caused by changes in the Sun's activity. The skeptics, who have argued that advocates of global warming are using climate change as an excuse to further their agenda to raise a carbon tax, is both ludicrous and erroneous at the same time. Rather it is the climate skeptics that are carrying the torch of falsehood. They seem to believe that everything that occurs on the earth is natural, and should have no bearing on how we prepare for natural disasters or cataclysmic events. I wonder what excuse they will conjure up now to discredit the scientists in their continual quest to disprove the facts and findings presented in climate research. We can only gaze in amazement as to why they reject scientific findings, and ponder just exactly what planet they are all living on!
