New science papers from independent scientists that show that the sun is the main influence on climate, not CO2 as the politicians, media and activists try telling us, are discussed here. It shows that money rules them!
It only takes one paper to falsify a theory, so the AGW theory is now well and truly busted. First, through Dr Ed Berry, a paper released last year:
by Dr. Ed Berry (Ph.D., Atmospheric Physics)
A new, peer-reviewed professional paper shows our sun, not our carbon dioxide, causes climate change. It also shows atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations are an insignificant player, and possibly a non-player, in climate change.
The authors, Willie Soon, Ronan Connolly, and Michael Connolly received no government, corporate, or any outside funding for their work on their paper.
Later this year. Dr Evans has 2 new papers being published which will rock the original model it’s all based on. Evans’ theory predicts cooling to begin in 3 to 4 years if not already.
In other words it’s a theory that can be soon falsified if he is wrong. This is Part 22 of the publishing on Jonova’s blog.
This post makes the case for a delay of ~11 years or one sunspot cycle between a change in smoothed TSI and the corresponding change in surface temperature. And we mean an actual delay between two discrete events, not just a corresponding gradual surface warming smeared out through time as the effect of the change in TSI builds up.
(By the way, what motivated us to look for a delay, which is a novel thing to do? Well we had initially thought that the notch filter found in post 21 implied that there must be a delay, but this was based on an incomplete analysis that indicated that a notch filter is necessarily non-causal (see the old blog posts). Such a non-causal transfer function requires an accompanying delay to make it physically realistic. But a notch filter can also be causal, as insisted upon by blog reader Bernie Hutchins, and as a complete analysis later showed.** In retrospect this was a lucky mistake to have made, because once we started looking for evidence of a delay we found rather a lot of it.)
Observational Evidence for a Delay
A delay of ~11 years from changes in smoothed TSI to corresponding changes in surface temperature has been found independently several times, though apparently mostly interpreted as delays in the propagation of heat around the Earth. Few, if any, appear to have considered the delay might be in the Sun itself. […]

Observations are Suggestive of a Delay
We constructed a composite TSI record and a composite temperature record by splicing together the data mentioned in post 21 on the notch. Fig. 2 below shows global temperature versus 11-year-delayed TSI, back to 1800, where the TSI is 11-year smoothed to remove most of the effect of the sunspot cycle (the smoother simply averages the values in a centered 11-year window; if the sunspot cycle was exactly 11 years such a smoother would remove all cyclic behavior). With the obvious exception of the 1950s through early 1980s, which we discuss in a later post, the temperature and 11-year-delayed TSI trend up and down mainly in unison — which is suggestive of an ~11-year delay. Be aware that the data is from proxies before 1850 for temperatures and before 1979 for TSI.
Figure 1: Global temperature and 11-year delayed TSI, both 11-year smoothed, have mainly trended together.

Update, Peak exaggeration by the Great Global Warming ‘master’, Raymond Pierrehumbert, the man himself and author of the “gold standard” textbook in climate science, and his media sidekick Andy Revkin.
Following Raymond’s fairytale, Joanne Nova writes in despair:
Thus speaks one of the most respected brains behind the Great Global Warming Scare. This is the man who wrote The Textbook every larval climate scientist is currently fed. He’s the one who captured in writing (without naming it) the invisible mental model that is the application of “basic physics” to estimating sensitivity to increasing Co2. He gave us a glimpse of the holy grail source code that drives the implacable belief that atmospheric CO2 Must Cause Global Warming with a climate sensitivity of 1.5C – 4.5C.
At this point, I have to mention (go on, forgive me) that David Evans recently found a couple of oh-so-minor problems with the basic mental model (mental being the most appropriate word, h/t Steve Milloy). Fixing these mistakes reduces climate sensitivity by a factor of ten; the whole CO2 was due to a simple modeling error; who forgot a class of feedback loops? David’s work is laid out here. For a shorter summary see the updated Synopsis. The mistakes, specifically: The Rerouting Feedback, and Omitting Feedbacks that are not Temperature-Dependent.
