New paper links cosmic rays, clouds, and temperature

This new paper shows what appears to be a link between Forbush descreases and terrestrial temperature change shortly afterwards. It is a short time scale demonstration of what Svensmark is positing happens on a longer climate appropriate time scale as the solar magnetic field changes with long periods. I’ve covered the topic of Forbush decreases…

Some reactions to the CLOUD experiment

CERN Finds “Significant” Cosmic Ray Cloud Effect Best known for its studies of the fundamental constituents of matter, the CERN particle-physics laboratory in Geneva is now also being used to study the climate. Researchers in the CLOUD collaboration have released the first results from their experiment designed to mimic conditions in the Earth’s atmosphere. By…

CERN: “Don’t interpret the CLOUD experiment results”

From the Register and Nigel Calder’s blog via bunches of people who submitted in Tips and Notes, hints of a new project, the RCC (Real Climate Collider) /sarc. CERN ‘gags’ physicists in cosmic ray climate experiment What do these results mean? Not allowed to tell you The chief of the world’s leading physics lab at…

Update on the CERN CLOUD experiment

WUWT reader Max_B tips us off to this article and video. According to Nigel Calder’s Blog, CERN’s CLOUD experiment (testing Svensmarks’s cosmic-ray theory) shows a large enhancement of aerosol production and the results are due for release in 2 or 3 months’ time. There is a short Physics World interview with Jasper Kirkby which is…
