Eight Recent Papers Overshadow CO2 Warming Hypothesis

Recently I posted a number of reports on the powerful correlation between solar activity cycles and historical climate change. Clearly the sun is a driver. The question that remains is what is the mechanism that drives climate. Recently there have been a number of papers showing Danish physicist Henrik Svensmark is on the right path and that global governments, and the hundreds of climate institutes they fund, are hopelessly lost in la-la land.

New perspectives for long-term climate predictions

The natural, 11-year cycle of solar activity is apparently influencing long-term climate fluctuations in the Northern Hemisphere. An international team of scientists has shown that the so-called North Atlantic Oscillation, one of the dominant circulation patterns on the Northern Hemisphere, is phased-locked to the decadal solar activity with a delay of one or two years.

Solar forcing synchronizes decadal North Atlantic climate variability

Quasi-decadal variability in solar irradiance has been suggested to exert a substantial effect on Earth’s regional climate. In the North Atlantic sector, the 11-year solar signal has been proposed to project onto a pattern resembling the

What’s new on solar energy? Overview of the latest papers on complex topic of sun/climate

Over the past years it has become increasingly clear that the role of the sun on climate has long been underestimated. Recent studies show this, and we will point these out at this blog in the days ahead.What’s new on the subject of the sun?

A new method for forecasting the solar cycle descent time

The prediction of an extended solar minimum is extremely important because of the severity of its impact on the near-earth space. Here, we present a new method for predicting the descent time of the forthcoming solar cycle (SC); the method is based on the estimation of the Shannon entropy.

Multiscale monsoon variability during the last two climatic cycles revealed by spectral signals in Chinese loess and speleothem records

The East Asian Monsoon (EAM) exhibits a significant variability on timescales ranging from tectonic to centennial as inferred from loess, speleothem and marine records. However, the relative contributions and plausible driving forces of the monsoon variability at different timescales remain controversial. […] Spectral results of these two proxies display clear glacial and orbital periodicities corresponding to ice volume and solar cycles, and evident millennial signals which are in pace with Heinrich rhythm and Dansgaard–Oeschger (DO) cycles.

Solar Activity Is Declining -Scientists

While solar activity is declining, our Earth may be slowly heading for a new ice age, according to scientists. Studying the decreasing number of sunspots, researchers found that we are possible entering a nearly spotless solar cycle. This could result in lower temperatures for decades.
