Cosmic rays could and probably are the source of all global warming. This article describes a new book by a scientist who published that idea ten years ago, and now has experimental validation of the mechanism that makes it possible.

For 10 years, Svensmark has protested that man-made carbon dioxide is not the gas which is suffocating the planet. Instead, he claims, there are greater forces at work: cosmic rays - streams of high-energy particles from exploded stars.

His theory goes something like this: cosmic rays bombard the earth's atmosphere, helping to seed the formation of clouds. Clouds reflect sunlight and keep the earth cool. So, what would happen if the levels of cosmic rays subsided due to interference from the sun?

The earth would warm.

Video clip of a debate between a supporter of the cosmic ray climate change theory and a detractor.

Quote:
The Chilling Stars by science writer Nigel Calder and climate physicist Henrik Svensmark outlines a controversial new theory on the origins of global warming.

The book sets out to prove that a combination of clouds, the Sun and cosmic rays - sub-atomic particles from exploding stars - have altered our climate far more than human carbon emissions.


Also more information and an excerpt from Svensmark's book.

Startling evidence that hints at cosmoclimatology...

Quote:
Published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters and led by scientists from the UK's National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) and the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), this remarkable study shows how the number of high-energy cosmic-rays reaching a detector deep underground, closely matches temperature measurements in the upper atmosphere (known as the stratosphere).

"Our results show a strong correlation between the strength of the earth's magnetic field and the amount of precipitation in the tropics," one of the two Danish geophysicists behind the study, Mads Faurschou Knudsen of the geology department at Aarhus University in western Denmark, told the Videnskab journal.
