Most of the energy in the Earth’s atmosphere comes from the Sun. It has long been recognised that changes in the so-called total solar irradiance (“TSI”) – the amount of energy emitted by the Sun, over the last few centuries – could have contributed substantially to recent climate change.
Crucially, a 2021 CERES-led study found that the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (“IPCC”) only considered a small subset of the published TSI datasets when they were assessing the role of the Sun in climate change and that this subset only included “low solar variability” datasets. As a result, the IPCC was premature in ruling out a substantial role of the Sun in recent climate change.
CERES, the Center for Environmental Research and Earth Sciences, is a multi-disciplinary and independent research group whose aims are to address important issues in the fields of environmental and earth sciences.

The study, which is the most comprehensive to date, was conducted by 23 experts in the fields of solar physics and climate science from 14 countries and published in Research in Astronomy and Astrophysics (“RAA”). It examined the role of the Sun in climate change over the last 150 years and found that the IPCC may have been premature in their conclusion that recent climate change is mostly caused by human greenhouse gas emissions.
The authors wrote that scientists come to opposite conclusions about the causes of recent climate change depending on which datasets they consider. In a press release announcing their study, CERES gave examples of how, by selecting certain datasets, IPCC skews their conclusions and noted what various experts had to say about the study’s findings. Below is a sample of what the real experts had to say.
CERES co-team leader Dr. Ronan Connolly, lead author of the study, said:
“The IPCC is mandated to find a consensus on the causes of climate change. I understand the political usefulness of having a consensus view in that it makes things easier for politicians. However, science doesn’t work by consensus. In fact, science thrives best when scientists are allowed to disagree with each other and to investigate the various reasons for disagreement. I fear that by effectively only considering the datasets and studies that support their chosen narrative, the IPCC have seriously hampered scientific progress into genuinely understanding the causes of recent and future climate change. I am particularly disturbed by their inability to satisfactorily explain the rural temperature trends.”How much has the Sun influenced Northern Hemisphere temperature trends?

WeiJia Zhang, Professor of Physics at Shaoxing University (China) and a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society (UK) said:
“The quest to understand how the Earth’s climate is connected to the Sun is one of the oldest science subjects studied by the ancient Greeks and Chinese. This review paper blows open the mystery and explains why it has been so difficult to make scientific advances so far. It will take the real understanding of fluid dynamics and magnetism on both the Sun and Earth to find the next big leap forward.”How much has the Sun influenced Northern Hemisphere temperature trends?

László Szarka, from the ELKH Institute of Earth Physics and Space Science (Hungary) and also a member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences said:
“This review is a crucial milestone on the way to restoring the scientific definition of ‘climate change’ that has become gradually distorted over the last three decades. The scientific community should finally realise that in science there is no authority or consensus; only the right to seek the truth.”How much has the Sun influenced Northern Hemisphere temperature trends?

Recently, Dr. John Robson of the Climate Discussion Nexus (“CDN”) interviewed Dr. Connolly on the role of the Sun in recent climate change.
CDN published a 20-minute “explainer” video including extracts from this interview and a discussion of some of CERES’ recent scientific research. Although the video covers quite a few technical points, they are explained in a very clear and accessible manner.
The video refers to the CERES study described earlier in this article, namely: ‘How much has the Sun influenced Northern Hemisphere temperature trends? An ongoing debate’ and you can read a brief description of the topics the video covers HERE.
YouTube, of course, has labelled the video to “nudge” viewers away from facts and towards the UN globalist “party line.”
