What, pray tell, is the controlled experiment that the authors propose should be run?

Further, regarding cloud cover and temperature, the authors confuse cause and effect. This article is garbage.

Dr. Heinrich Svensmark & CERN have performed physical experimentation of cloud seeding from cosmic radiation.

There is physical experimentation re: cause & effect. Perhaps you could write a rebuttal since you feel so strongly in your beliefs.

Since this post was "flagged" & taken down, here is the original scientific paper which caused this controversy.

> “During the last hundred years the temperature increased about 0.1°C because of carbon dioxide. The human contribution was about 0.01°C”, the Finnish researchers bluntly state in one among a series of papers.

> This has been collaborated by a team at Kobe University in Japan, which has furthered the Finnish researchers' theory: "New evidence suggests that high-energy particles from space known as galactic cosmic rays affect the Earth's climate by increasing cloud cover, causing an 'umbrella effect'," the just published study has found, a summary of which has been released in the journal Science Daily. The findings are hugely significant given this 'umbrella effect' — an entirely natural occurrence — could be the prime driver of climate warming, and not man-made factors.
