Cosmic Revelations

It's really no news at all for anyone who has done a modicum of reading on the subject beyond hysterical headlines:

Man-made climate change may be happening at a far slower rate than has been claimed, according to controversial new research. Scientists say that cosmic rays from outer space play a far greater role in changing the Earth's climate than global warming experts previously thought.
But there is one thing they have got wrong:

They hope this will prove whether this deep space radiation is responsible for changing cloud cover. If so, it could force climate scientists to re-evaluate their ideas about how global warming occurs.
Not so - it could force climate scientists to re-evaluate where they get their government research grants from.
