Sceptics create a best-seller

Professor Ian Plimer’s Heaven and Earth, a bestseller here despite being rejected by four preachy publishers, has now been released in the US – and should do some damage to global warming alarmists there, too, to judge by its Amazon ranking:
Amazon.com Sales Rank: #132 in Books…
Popular in these categories:…
#1 in Books > Professional & Technical > Professional Science > Biological Sciences > Ecology
#1 in Books > Science > Earth Sciences > Meteorology
#1 in Books > Science > Earth Sciences > Climatology > Climate Changes
Once more scientists and politicians realise there’s an audience for scepticism at the claims of warming alarmists, more will speak out.
Meanwhile, a new paper by Henrik Svensmark implicates the sun in global warming – and cooling:
Our results show global-scale evidence of conspicuous influences of solar variability on cloudiness and aerosols… From solar activity to cosmic ray ionization to aerosols and liquid-water clouds, a causal chain appears to operate on a global scale.
Anthony Watts explains:
This paper confirms 13 years of discoveries that suggest a key role for cosmic rays in climate change. It links observable variations in the world’s cloudiness to laboratory experiments in Copenhagen showing how cosmic rays help generate atmospheric aerosols. This is important, because it confirms the existence of a sun-earth atmospheric modulation mechanism for clouds and aerosols.
But there’s been a big jump in global temperature for July.
