Skip to comments.Report shows UN admitting solar activity may play significant role in global warming

The Earth has been getting warmer -- but how much of that heat is due to greenhouse gas emissions and how much is due to natural causes?
A leaked report by a United Nations group dedicated to climate studies says that heat from the sun may play a larger role than previously thought.
[Results] do suggest the possibility of a much larger impact of solar variations on the stratosphere than previously thought, and some studies have suggested that this may lead to significant regional impacts on climate, reads a draft copy of a major, upcoming report from the U.N.s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

Well, Duuuhhh. It has been know for 100 years that weather is more variable during sunspot minimums and maximums.
No rocket science to understand that.
Oh, I forgot. AGW is about agenda, not science.
hee hee hee
Wait a minute! The sun warms the earth? Who would have guessed? I can see why they leave such an indirect influence out of their models.
We spend nearly $9billion a year studying GW in the US alone, business regulations to control global.warming costs our economy about $1.8trillion per year, or half the annual budget...and we’re just now figuring out that the sun warms the earth? Seriously?
When someone starts talking about a 1.1 degree change over a hundred years I stop listening. Does anyone really believe the measurements are that accurate?
The Sun can kill you.
I don’t know. Ask Al Gore.
I always wondered why it is warmer when the sun is out during the day and cooler at night? Duh! But at last the UN has researched this and now we know why. So my bumper sticker is dead on fact now verified by the United Nations. I'm so proud!
I can't believe my tax dollars were used in this research, they could have read my bumper sticker for "free."
Stop the presses! The IPCC discovers the Maunder Minimum!!! How will AlGore take the news?
ROFL! They could've talked to any Amateur Radio Operator who's known for DECADES the impacts of the solar cycle on the atmosphere, radio signals, and btw temperatures on the planet.....
the sun may play a larger role than previously thought.
This is shocking news. Governments of the world must contribute all effort and treasure immediately to find a way to move the sun before it’s too late.
This is going to be very expensive folks.
And you're not cherry picking the data?. I generally ignore any charts with a suppressed zero. Both lines on your chart have a suppressed zero. I am also highly skeptical of any data from NASA GISS. Their history of altering history is well known. See this chart from JoNova showing a complete REVERSAL in historical data: http://jonova.s3.amazonaws.com/graphs/giss/hansen-giss-1940-1980.gif
BTW welcome to Free Republic. Hope to see you for more than a day.
Next comes SOLAR TAX CREDITS to offset costs for government control of solar activity.
On the local news, when they show the high and low temperatures for the day, they also show the record high and low temp. Very often the record temps are from 50-60 years ago and there is sometimes a 20+ degree difference in both. Where was Alwhore then?
And speaking of Al, watching him defending to selling out to Al Jazzera reminds me of George Costanza. “It isn’t a lie if you believe it.”
suppressed zero = suppressed origin in cartesian coordinates (the “O” where the x and y axes meet).
This leads to a visual distortion (often intended) of the data.
On a proper scale that divergence in your plot would hardly be visible.
(Thanks NPS, btw, for pointing this out - I’ve done so a few times and received some very weird responses...*sigh*)
Many years ago when I first heard of AGW I looked into it. I discovered that the energy output of the Sun was concidered a constant by the models predicting warming. That was when I decided AGW science was junk science.
