Experiment finds global warming caused by sun; AGW crowd censors results

Next time you hear Al Gore or some other global-warming moron claim that "the science is settled" that human activities are causing the planet to warm, just laugh.

For almost two decades now, the theory of "anthropogenic global warming"--that humans are causing it--has been pushed with a ruthlessness that's astonishing. When anyone voiced even the mildest skepticism about the theory, the pro-AGW fascists immediately rallied their network of friendly journalists to villify and discredit the skeptic.

Pro-AGW scientists also worked hard to ensure that experiments that had a good chance of debunking their pet theory didn't get any funding.

Fifteen years ago a pair of Danish scientists speculated that cosmic rays might have a much larger role in forming high-altitude clouds than had previously been thought. They proposed an experiment using the CERN particle accelerator that would either prove or disprove the theory.

Sounds harmless enough, eh? But the AGW establishment saw a big danger to their stream of government grants: Clouds reflect the sun's energy away from the earth, so anything that affected the amount of clouds formed would play a huge role in climate change.

Since it was already known that the number of cosmic rays reaching earth varied over time, and was controlled by the sun's magnetic field, it followed that IF the theory was right, a huge chunk of global warming would be due to...the sun, not humans.

Accordingly, pro-AGW scientists succeeded in killing funding for the Danish cosmic ray experiment for a whole decade. It was finally funded due to the great efforts of one one scientist who was willing to stand up to the mud-slinging from the AGW establishment.

The results of the experiment were released last week, and show convincingly the role of cosmic rays in cloud formation. But if you think the AGW establishment has been defeated you're naive: CERN--the lab where the experiment was done--is totally dependent on government funding, so its executives are careful to avoid offending the politicians that control those funds. Thus the bosses at CERN ordered the Danish team to avoid “the highly political arena of the climate change debate,” telling them “to present the results clearly but not interpret them” and to downplay the results by “mak[ing] clear that cosmic radiation is only one of many parameters.”

For the AGW establishment, it doesn't matter what the science actually shows as long as you can control what's printed about it later.
