The facts:<quoted text>
The cosmic ray theory is directly related to the heliosphere. Higher solar activity creates a larger heliosphere. The heliosphere protects us from some cosmic ray activity. As solar energy decreases so does the heliosphere and more cosmic rays make it into our solar system and to earth.
Cosmic rays are thought to add to the production of cloud cover. More clouds more solar energy is deflected. The low solar energy generated by the sun is reduced further by deflection and reduces the amount of energy received by the oceans.
Cooler oceans, cooler temperatures.
- This theory has been considered and dismissed before. A 2010 report by the National Academies of Science was commissioned by Congress to examine all the evidence surrounding global warming including the theory that cosmic rays might influence Earth’s climate. It concluded that “a plausible physical mechanism… has not been demonstrated” and “cosmic rays are not regarded as an important climate forcing.”
