Watts Up With that has the details here:
Long-anticipated results of the CLOUD experiment at CERN in Geneva appear in tomorrow’s issue of the journal Nature (25 August). The Director General of CERN stirred controversy last month, by saying that the CLOUD team’s report should be politically correct about climate change (see my 17 July post below). The implication was that they should on no account endorse the Danish heresy – Henrik Svensmark’s hypothesis that most of the global warming of the 20th Century can be explained by the reduction in cosmic rays due to livelier solar activity, resulting in less low cloud cover and warmer surface temperatures.
Willy-nilly the results speak for themselves, and it’s no wonder the Director General was fretful.
Jasper Kirkby of CERN and his 62 co-authors, from 17 institutes in Europe and the USA, announce big effects of pions from an accelerator, which simulate the cosmic rays and ionize the air in the experimental chamber. The pions strongly promote the formation of clusters of sulphuric acid and water molecules – aerosols of the kind that may grow into cloud condensation nuclei on which cloud droplets form. What’s more, there’s a very important clarification of the chemistry involved.
Bad news for the warmists … They won’t like this one bit.
Sunspots do regulate the earth’s climate, at least to real scientists. Lack of spots, means the climate is cooling, like today. It’s just not what you thought was doing. But you would expect people like the flake Al Gore, or the liars like OblameO to tell you.
Or to put it another way: The good people of CERN failed to discover the ‘God’ particle. However, for climate science they did discover the ‘OMG Particle’. That’s the particle that says everything you ever heard about CO2 and climate was wrong, and it IS the Sun, stupid. So far, almost 24 hours after the news broke, crickets are chirping at the warmist’s home blog, Climate Progress.
