Data provides evidence to back up theory previously rubbished by warming alarmists

New scientific research has demonstrated that solar variations have had major effects on the climate of the Earth as recently as 2,000 years ago.
The research , conducted by a team of scientists from the Universities of Ohio, Minnesota, and Texas at Arlington ties a decline in solar radiation to a drop in temperatures and diminished levels of rainfall.
The scientists calculated the data using stalagmites that formed over thousands of years. Precise fluctuations in the Earth’s climate were recorded in the composition of the cave formations.
The new study also provides further evidence for a 1500-year Climate cycle, the evidence for which was first discovered in ice core data.
The Headline Experimental Link Found Between Sun and Climate  may seem ludicrous, but the data gleaned from the new study will go some way to countering claims that human CO2 emissions are the dominating influence on the Earth’s climate.
