Absolutely not, but CO2, particularly the man-made portion, is insignificant. And the cosmic rays are coming from the galaxy and being blocked to varying degrees by solar activity.
Global Warming, a closer look
See particularly Table 4a.
What about table 4a? Without the greenhouse effect earth would be freezing over. We're interested in what's above the natural baseline here.
You're condemning the science before the experiment has been performed. Very unscientific. All we have at this point is preliminary.
I'm not condemning anything except your belief that there can only be one variable that influences the climate. When CO2 levels were fairly low, prior to 1980, solar activity does seem to influence climate according to some chart's I've seen.
Yeah, in 1980 they start going in opposite directions, and that's the same time that CO2 increases dramatically.
Read the article again Tino. It posits that less solar activity will increase our average global temperature. You have it backwards. The graph you posted shows exactly the relationship we would expect to see if these cosmic rays were having an effect.
Not quite " During periods of low solar activity, more cosmic rays reach Earth." More cosmic rays = more clouds = lower temps, so more solar activity = less cosmic rays = less clouds = higher temps, according to this theory.
