Water vapour is the most important green house gas followed by methane. The third important greenhouse gas is CO2, and it does not correlate well with global warming or cooling either; in fact, CO2 in the atmosphere trails warming which is clear natural evidence for its well-studied inverse solubility in water: CO2 dissolves in cold water and bubbles out of warm water. The equilibrium in seawater is very high, making seawater a great ‘sink’; CO2 is 34 times more soluble in water than air is soluble in water.
Correlation is not causation to be sure. The causation has been studied, however, and while the radiation from the sun varies only in the fourth decimal place, the magnetism is awesome.
“Using a box of air in a Copenhagen lab, physicists traced the growth of clusters of molecules of the kind that build cloud condensation nuclei. These are specks of sulphuric acid on which cloud droplets form. High-energy particles driven through the laboratory ceiling by exploded stars far away in the Galaxy – the cosmic rays – liberate electrons in the air, which help the molecular clusters to form much faster than climate scientists have modeled in the atmosphere. That may explain the link between cosmic rays, cloudiness and climate change.”
As I understand it, the hypothesis of the Danish National Space Center goes as follows:
Quiet sun → reduced magnetic and thermal flux = reduced solar wind → geomagnetic shield drops → galactic cosmic ray flux → more low-level clouds and more snow → more albedo effect (more heat reflected) → colder climate
Active sun → enhanced magnetic and thermal flux = solar wind → geomagnetic shield response → less low-level clouds → less albedo (less heat reflected) → warmer climate
That is how the bulk of climate change might work, coupled with (modulated by) sunspot peak frequency there are cycles of global warming and cooling like waves in the ocean. When the waves are closely spaced, the planets warm; when the waves are spaced farther apart, the planets cool.
The ultimate cause of the solar magnetic cycle may be cyclicity in the Sun-Jupiter centre of gravity. We await more on that. In addition, although the post 60s warming period is over, it has allowed the principal green house gas, water vapour, to kick in with humidity, clouds, rain and snow depending on where you live to provide the negative feedback that scientists use to explain the existence of complex life on Earth for 550 million years. The planet heats and cools naturally and our gasses are the thermostat.

Bad News – The new sun spot is from the old cycle

3. E. R. Simon - February 14, 2009

From the Northwoods & Northern Lights 45th Parallel Society;
Great website! I became curious about the low level of N/L’s during the past wo years, and began surfacing the various related topics on the web. I discovered sites, like this one, and immediately discovered that humans are the new lemmings, when it comes to unproven, hysterical and politically driven science. While there is no doubt that emmissions and dust have an impact on micro-climates, the true threat, as I see it, comes from the scientific ignorance of those who soon will have to snuff out their campfires to save the earth. They fail to notice the great scientific discoveries of Galilelo and others, who have correlated the disappearance of sunspots with true climate events. Given sites, like yours, there is a glimmer of hope that the scientific community is discovering a more diverse set of rules that govern life on this planet. Keep up the great work – we need honest debates about what may lay ahead for the planet, in the short term. It is happening before our eyes and I hope and pray that Dangerous AL G. doesn’t ruin the sunspot concern by claiming it is caused by global warmth.
