Hotbed of Bull-Connor-Era Racism Discovered At CERN Physics Laboratories

Al Gore declares that if any of your friend expresses any doubt about Global Warming, you should shun/shut him up/shut him down as if he were indulging in racial slurs.

The newest racial slur? "Cosmic rays' central role in cloud formation will compel global warming 'scientists' to throw out all their old 'models.'"

This has significant implications for climate science because water vapour and clouds play a large role in determining global temperatures. Tiny changes in overall cloud cover can result in relatively large temperature changes.

Unsurprisingly, it’s a politically sensitive topic, as it provides support for a “heliocentric” rather than “anthropogenic” approach to climate change: the sun plays a large role in modulating the quantity of cosmic rays reaching the upper atmosphere of the Earth.


Climate models will have to be revised, confirms CERN in supporting literature (pdf):

“[I]t is clear that the treatment of aerosol formation in climate models will need to be substantially revised, since all models assume that nucleation is caused by these vapours [sulphuric acid and ammonia] and water alone.
