The Chilling Stars: The New Theory of Climate
In this interesting book the authors
explain their theory that sub-atomic particles from
exploded stars have more effect on the climate than manmade CO2. Their
conclusion stems from Svensmark's research which has shown the
previously unsuspected role that cosmic rays play in creating clouds.
During the last 100 years cosmic rays
became scarcer because unusually
vigorous action by the Sun batted away many of them. Fewer cosmic rays
meant fewer clouds--and a warmer world. The theory, simply put here but
explained in fascinating detail, emerges at a time of intense public
and political concern about climate change.
Motivated only by their
concern that science must be trustworthy, Svensmark and Calder invite
their readers to put aside their preconceptions about manmade global
warming and look afresh at the role of Nature in this hottest of world
book covers so much territory in so few pages, no brief review can
begin to do it justice. If you have any interest in global temperature
you must read this book!
