    Through experimentation Henrik Svensmark and the Cloud experiments in CERN have proven Galactic Cosmic Rays have a major influence on the Earth's Climate. When the Sun's activity level is high, the Earth's magnetosphere strength increases prohibiting Galactic Cosmic Rays from penetrating the Earth's atmosphere, resulting is less clouds and warming the Planet. When the Sun's activity level decreases, the opposite occurs. The Earth's magnetosphere or shields decrease in strength allowing more Galactic Cosmic Rays to penetrate the Earth's atmosphere creating more clouds, resulting in a cooling effect for the Planet.

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is in the early stages of launching a debate about climate change that could air on television – challenging scientists to prove the widespread view that global warming is a serious threat, the head of the agency said. “Red Team, Blue Team” Tactics Pruitt said his desire for the agency to host an ongoing climate change debate was inspired by two articles published in April – one in the Wall Street Journal by theoretical physicist Steve Koonin, who served as undersecretary of energy under Obama – and one by conservative columnist Brett Stephens in the New York Times. Koonin’s article made the case that climate science should use the “red team-blue team” methodology used by the national security community to test assumptions. Stephens’ article criticized claims of complete certainty in climate science, saying that it “traduces the spirit of science.” Pruitt said scientists should not scoff at the idea of participating in these debates. “If you’re going to win and if you’re so certain about it, come and do your deal. They shouldn’t be scared of the debate and discussion,” he said. .

    Is Ice Core Evidence More Reliable Than Heavily Adjusted Instrumental Record?

    Earlier this year, an intriguing paper published by Steiger et al.

(2017) contrasted the instrumental temperature record (which showed dramatic recent warming) with the global-scale temperature record as revealed by “real proxy” evidence from ice cores. The reconstructions using proxy evidence showed a global warming trend during the first half of the 20th century, and then no significant net warming thereafter.

  • What is Europe's solution to Global Warming? Other than punish the USA?

    Best answer: Firstly, no one is talking about 'punishing' the US. The view in Europe is that we need to reduce our CO2 emissions. Doing that will incur a cost in the short-term, but those costs will be offset in the longer-term. The view in Europe is simply that if we are incurring a cost in order to deal with global... show more
    Best answer: Firstly, no one is talking about 'punishing' the US.

    The view in Europe is that we need to reduce our CO2 emissions. Doing that will incur a cost in the short-term, but those costs will be offset in the longer-term. The view in Europe is simply that if we are incurring a cost in order to deal with global warming, and the US is not, then we may need to impose tariffs on US goods to equalize that cost. But we haven't gotten to that point yet because Trump will not be in power forever.

    In terms of our solution, we don't have a solution to global warming. It requires a global solution. All we can do is our bit in terms of reducing our CO2 emissions in keeping with targets.

    Does Europe rely on the US? Yes, of course we do. But Americans can't suddenly whinge about their role in the world and Europe's reliance on them when it was US policy decisions after WWII that defined that role for the US. You can't spend decade after decade 'projecting power' then turn around and try to wash your hands of the responsibilities you defined and created for yourselves. It's sort of like writing your own roles and responsibilities for a job, then complaining when you have to do the things you wrote down ...

    Best answer: Yes and it will continue to fall in the long term.

    The EIA projects that trends in coal production in the US could range from flat to continuing declines through 2040. Electric power generation accounts for more than 92% of US coal demand, and domestic coal production has declined significantly over the past decade as coal has been displaced by natural gas and renewables in electric generation.

    Despites Trump's blustering about reviving coal jobs, according to the MSAH, US coal production went down again in Q2 2017. (The largest recent rise in US coal production was in Q3 2016.)

    The two gases that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) identifies as being the instruments by which humanity is destroying of the biosphere are the two gases that give the biosphere life—carbon dioxide (CO2) and water vapor (H2O), i.e., humidity. They call them “greenhouse gases” because they are said to enhance a “greenhouse effect”, which in turn they say will cause catastrophic global warming. However, Astronomers looking for life on other Planets use that equations to find the " Goldilocks Zone" for life! Something is not right!
