Climate variability linked to solar variations – Correct??

“Although the solar effect on the North Atlantic Oscillation explains only a few percent of the total variance, the close relationship between solar activity and phase North Atlantic Oscillation is an important indicator to improve the predictability of climate variability” say GEOMAR (press-release 15.

COP21 – US $ per year for waste?

Admin/04/11.04.2015 Forward! Forward! Let’s proceed to the largest and probably most senseless investment ever. Big money for climate science in sight!
