These findings vindicate the claims of skeptic researchers such as Henrik Svensmark who for years have insisted the Sun is the key driver of Earth’s climate. Skeptics of the man made global warming theory (AGW) argue that the increased activity of the Sun, not human-emitted greenhouse gases, was the real cause of the temporary global warming blip that lasted from 1975-98.

In a reversal of his position, Dr Lockwood explains that the Sun is a key driver in global temperatures:
