  • In fact, they have stated: "At the moment, it the study actually says nothing about a possible cosmic-ray effect on clouds and climate, but it's a very important first step."

    Al Gore: Wall Street Journal Gets It Wrong on Climate, Again

  • He got in touch with Mr. Friis-Christensen and they used satellite data to show a close correlation among solar activity, cloud cover and cosmic-ray levels since 1979.

    The Other Climate Theory

  • But while the cosmic-ray theory has been ridiculed from the start by those who subscribe to the anthropogenic-warming theory, both Mr. Kirkby and Mr. Svensmark hold that human activity is contributing to climate change.

    The Other Climate Theory

  • He got in touch with Mr. Friis-Christensen, and they used satellite data to show a close correlation among solar activity, cloud cover and cosmic-ray levels since 1979.

    The Other Climate Theory

  • There has been no significant change in cosmic-ray intensity over the same period in which we have seen the increase in global temperatures.

    Cosmic Rays, Cloud Influences and Climate Change

  • The cosmic-ray theory is also discussed in the landmark book "Heaven and Earth—Global Warming, the Missing Science" 2009 by Prof.

    Cosmic Rays, Cloud Influences and Climate Change

  • However, one school holds that the predominate influences arise from astronomical sources, such as the cosmic-ray mechanism.

    Cosmic Rays, Cloud Influences and Climate Change

  • As such, the issue that should be addressed relates to changes in cosmic-ray intensity: i.e., assuming cosmic rays do influence clouds, have cosmic-ray intensities changed during the time when global atmospheric temperatures have changed?

    Cosmic Rays, Cloud Influences and Climate Change

  • The issue for climate change is not whether cosmic rays influence clouds, the issue is whether cosmic-ray intensities have changed during the years when global atmospheric temperatures have changed.

    Cosmic Rays, Cloud Influences and Climate Change

  • A $1.5 billion seven-ton cosmic-ray experiment scheduled to be carried aloft July 29 on the space shuttle Endeavour won't be ready until August, according to the experiment's leader, Samuel Ting of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, delaying the end of the 29-year-old shuttle program.
