Four New Papers Link Solar Activity, Natural Ocean Cycles To Climate – And Find Warmer Temps During 1700s, 1800s

sun-earthAs of mid-September, there have already been 77 peer-reviewed scientific papers authored by several hundred scientists linking solar activity to climate change.  There were 43 as of the end of June, as seen here. In other words, there have been 34 more papers linking solar forcing to climate change made available online just since July.

This publication rate for 2016 is slightly ahead of the pace of published papers linking solar forcing to climate change for  2015 (95 Solar-Climate papers ) and 2014 (93 Solar-Climate papers). At this rate, it is likely that a list of 300+ scientific papers linking solar forcing to climate change will have been made available between 2014 and 2016.

In addition, there have already been 41 papers published in science journals this year linking natural oceanic oscillations (i.e., ENSO, NAO, AMO, PDO) to climate changes. There were 27 such papers as of the end of June.

The solar-ocean oscillation climate connection has gained widespread acceptance in the scientific community. For example, see “35 New Scientific Publications Confirm Ocean Cycles, Sun Are the Main Climate Drivers

The latest papers linking solar activity as well as ocean oscillations to climate changes are listed below. Not only do these papers describe solar activity and ocean oscillations as the dominant mechanisms of climate change, they provide evidence that the modern, post-1950 period does not contain the highest temperatures of the last few hundred years. In fact, these papers each document that temperatures during some periods of the 1700s and/or 1800s were just as warm or warmer than present temperatures.

The periods with much lower CO2 concentrations (of about 280 parts per million, or 0.028% of atmospheric gases) could have warmer-than-now temperatures (with present CO2 concentrations reaching 400 parts per million) defies claims that variations in CO2 primarily (or even exclusively) determine the temperature of the planet’s water and air, and that natural variations in solar activity, ocean heat distribution/cycling, clouds, volcanic activity…play little to no role in long-term climate change.

Perhaps this CO2-drives-climate paradigm needs to be updated to reflect the growing body of scientific evidence that the Sun and natural ocean cycling are primarily what drive temperature variations — not CO2.

    These scientific studies confirm ocean cycles and the sun are the main climate drivers .
    Whew, how shocking . The Sun really . So if the earth has a fever believers still want to fantasize about climate control how are they planning on adjusting the Sun ? NOAA could give it a shot . A massive dimmer switch over Sacramento California and Gov Brown’s cow fart patrol are ready for action .

    A copy of these peer reviewed papers confirming the obvious , natural climate variables
    like the sun . are the “dominant mechanisms of climate change” , should be sent to the twit AG witch hunters so when it is their turn to answer the “who knew ” question there is a record of their denial .
    Does an AG have to declare who they lobby for while the tax payers pay their mortgage ? Are AG’s permitted by law to act as lobbyist’s while employed by the government and while punching the tax payers time clock ? If so does this benefit extend to all government employees ? Who oversees the code of conduct of AG’s ?

    It’s quite amazing how long it has taken the PHDs to realise that the great fireball in the sky from which the Earth receives 99.9% of it’s heat (which keeps homo sapiens in business) could be the principal source of all our climate fluctuations. Wow!

    Forget about the 77 papers. Peer review in the climate discussion (not debate – that’s over, remember- although I can’t quite find out when it started, who was the moderator and who were the judges who decided who won that ??? debate) has been totally discredited; argumentum ad verecundam has also been shown to be a sticky wicket; nullius in verba; decide for yourself and use commonsense.

    Of course it’s the Sun, stupid.

    Funny how that works? Eh! Ya know, Water Vapor, Clouds, Oceans and that Big Yellow Ball we see in the sky!
