It shows that for the last 20 years, the Sun's output has declined, yet temperatures on Earth have risen.

It also shows that modern temperatures are not determined by the Sun's effect on cosmic rays, as has been claimed.

What's it worth?

On Line Opinion is unique in the world - an eJournal that really is at the centre of the national conversation, that is impartial, fair and open to new ideas. So what is it worth to you?
