New Paper: Most Modern Warming, Including Recent Decades, Is Due To Solar Forcing, Not CO2

‘Two-Thirds Of Climate Warming’ Since 1750 Due To ‘Solar Causes’

Though advocates of the dangerous anthropogenic global warming (AGW) narrative may not welcome the news, evidence that modern-day global warming has largely been driven by natural factors – especially solar activity – continues to pile up.

Much of the debate about the Sun’s role in climate change is centered around reconstructions of solar activity that span the last 400 years, which now include satellite data from the late 1970s to present.

To buttress the claim that solar forcing has effectively played almost no role in surface temperature changes since the mid-20th century, the IPCC has shown a preference for modeled reconstructions of solar activity (i.e., the PMOD) that show a stable or decreasing trend since the 1970s.

Why?  Because if the modeled results can depict steady or decreasing solar activity since the last few decades of the 20th century – just as surface temperatures were rising – then attributing the post-1970s warming trend to human activity becomes that much easier.

The trouble is, satellite observations using ACRIM  data (which have been affirmed to be accurate by other satellite data sets and are rooted in observation, not modeled expectations) indicate that solar activity did not decline after the 1970s, but actually rose quite substantially.

It wasn’t until the early 2000s that solar activity began to decline, corresponding with the denouement of the Modern Grand Maximum.

    And were some 93 million miles away from the sun yet it still has a bigger influance on our weather and climate then dose all the cars backyard BBQ’s and Air Contioners combined

    This should be front and center. The IPCC is ignoring satellite data in favor of their forecast.
    Why would they do that? They can’t tax the sun.

    The International Panel of Climate Criminals has gone quiet as … the SUN . They knew the solar activity ran the climate show and now that we have entered a period of lower solar activity with a cooling a consequence they want to run and hide .
    Hard to justify the great global warming heist when 10’s of thousands will die this winter from fuel poverty . Yep just keep cranking those utility rates and add the population control
    carbon tax dor legalized mass murder . The puppet masters leading the climate fraud should be rounded up to live in an Antarctica outdoor prison . They have known all along that natural variables are the overwhelming drivers of climate yet purposely lied to further their own goals . Robbing tax payers all over the world .
