"We demonstrate that the detrended annual means of global surface air temperature in 1965–2012 show the maxima during CRs [Cosmic Rays] and Dst index [of the solar wind] minima. It proves that CRs [Cosmic Rays] play essential role in climate change and main part of climate variations can be explained by Pudovkin and Raspopov’s (1992) mechanism of action CRs [Cosmic Rays] modulated by the solar activity on the state of lower atmosphere and meteorological parameters. Following this we have to seek for another ways of looking for global warming reason, first of all, as a man impact on climate."
Data from the paper shows a strong correlation between cosmic rays and detrended surface temperatures in two locations 1966-2006 and 1965-2012:
|Top graph shows changes in cosmic rays correlated to detrended surface temperatures in second graph. Note vertical axis is inverse on the temperature graph because increased cosmic rays are believed to seed cloud formation, which causes cooling. Bottom graph shows sunspot numbers and 3rd graph is an index of solar geomagnetic activity.|
|Graphs on right hand side show correlation between CR cosmic rays and detrended temperature (B,nT)|
|Cosmic Rays [CR] are believe to seed cloud formation and thus inversely related to temperature as bottom two graphs show. |
We previously calculated using the greenhouse equation that a mere 1% change in global cloud cover up or down would change average global surface temperature ~1C, thus if clouds are indeed seeded by cosmic rays, and cosmic rays vary up to 8% over solar cycles (as shown in the first graph above), this theoretically could have a significant effect on local and global temperatures.
