It’s the Sun?

Good news.

From the birthplace of the World Wide Web we have news about global warming. And, you’ll never guess what’s causing it. No, really, it’s going to surprise you. But, I’m not sure that I can really tell you about it.

You see, it’s a little embarrassing. A bunch of physics types got it into their head to see how much a certain… star… yes, that’s it… star… had on the formation of clouds. And, they got this idea ‘cuz everyone knows that stars are the source of zippy particles – these really tiny, tiny things that rush through the air really zippy fast. And, they thought that these zippy particles might play a role in how clouds are formed. (No really. This is interesting.)

Everyone knows that clouds block sunlight. And, since sunlight is the number one cause of heat… more clouds means less sunlight – which means less heat. And, less heat is like… well, there would be less warming… on the globe… globally.

So, less, uh… Global Warming.

There I said it.

More zippy particles could mean less global warming. Fewer zippy particles could mean more global warming.

Here’s the embarrassing part. These scientists found out that zippy particles (cosmic rays) DO play a role in cloud formation. In fact, cosmic rays play such a big role that it puts into question the whole idea of man-made global warming.

That’s not just embarrassing, that’s humiliating.

And that star that I was talking about? The biggest source of cosmic rays hitting earth?

Are you sitting down? This is quite a shocker.

It’s the sun.

That’s right. If the sun isn’t putting out enough cosmic rays, there are fewer clouds in the air. And, if there are fewer clouds, more sunlight reaches the earth. And, anyone who has ever sat in the shade knows that less sunlight means less heat. But, that’s not the interesting part.

No, the interesting part is what the laboratory (CERN) did when they saw the results. This is from the online version of the newspaper Die Welt:

Welt Online: The results of the so-called CLOUD experiment, exploring the formation of clouds, are awaited with great excitement. Could these results still be important for understanding global climate change?
Heuer: This is indeed a matter of understanding better the formation of clouds. In nature there are many parameters at work – including temperature, humidity, impurities and also cosmic radiation. In the experiment, CLOUD investigates the influence of cosmic rays on cloud formation, using radiation [meaning particles] coming from the accelerator. And in an experimental chamber one can study, under controlled conditions, how the formation of droplets depends on the radiation and particulate matter. The results will be published shortly. I have asked the colleagues to present the results clearly, but not to interpret them. That would go immediately into the highly political arena of the climate change debate. One has to make clear that cosmic radiation is only one of many parameters.

The point?

Scientists are being asked to suppress findings because the results go against accepted notions – because they are ‘politically incorrect’.

Amazing.

No, that’s too calm and dignified.

I’m not amazed. I’m jumping up and down, bouncing off the walls upset!

I don’t care one way or the other about the cause of global warming. Really. But, the fact that we are suppressing scientific results? Because we don’t like the answers?

AARRGGGGHHHH!!!!!

Now, for those of us who have a cynical view of political correctness (like yours truly) this really isn’t news. It’s just more of the same.

So, why am I upset, and why am I writing about it here?

On a site that’s about Israel?

This is the same stupidity that has brought us to the disaster that’s afflicting us right now. If the US had completely sided with Israel from the beginning, we wouldn’t have the problem with global terrorism that we do today. If we had completely sided with Israel, from the beginning, the Middle East would not be the mess that it is today. If we had dealt with Iran the way that we should have, there wouldn’t be an Islamic regime there, and there would be no fear of nuclear weapons from them.

In fact, it seems that we’ve been on a diet of ‘political correctness’ for so long, that we’ve forgotten what truth is. As I wrote about the main stream media in Poetic Justice,

At the same time that they were doing their best to blacken the name of Israel, they were helping create the downfall of the American financial system.

The problem isn’t that they said these things. The problem is that we believed them.

How many other things do we believe that are destroying us right now?

I think that it’s time to take a hard look at what we believe, before it’s too late.

  1. John, darling, aligning a pro Israel site with climate change denyers does not help our cause at all, lol. And as someone with a physics background, you ought to understand that multivariate equations make for non linear functions, and that this research you quote doesn’t disprove that global climate is affected by human activity. Come ON fella!

  2. Hey Sabra,

    It’s great to hear from you.

    I’m not aligning with climate-change deniers, nor am I denying that humanity is directly and negatively impacting our environment. I’m afraid that we’re on such a self-destructive course that climate change will probably never become an issue.

    However, if someone put a gun to my head and asked me if humans are (at least partly) responsible for global warming, I’d probably say yes. Why not? We’re responsible for so much else, why not this? Furthermore, Arab Oil has financed terrorism for so long, taking steps to get away from that… is just good sense. We need to cut the money supply to terrorism, and cutting down on our consumption of Arab Oil will move us to our goal.

    But that’s beside the point.

    What is so upsetting to me is that scientists are playing the political correctness game, when they shouldn’t have to. Even more upsetting, this is the same game that’s brought us to our current situation, and we keep playing it.

    Political correctness is killing us, and we cannot seem to stop.

    Thanks for giving me the chance to clear that up. I obviously didn’t emphasize the point strongly enough.

    – John
