UEA's Tim Osborn: "it is becoming increasingly obvious that solar variations are important"

ClimateGate FOIA grepper! - Email 2036

The range of scientific opinion is quite broad on the topic of how much climate variability and change is driven by solar variations. Nevertheless, as more observational data and improved statistical analysis techniques become available, it is becoming increasingly obvious that solar variations are important. For temperature, many scientists now feel that natural solar variations were the main contributor to the early 20th century warming that occurred between about 1910 and 1950. The dramatic warming since 1980, however, cannot be explained by changes in solar output.  [UEA's Tim Osborn, Nov 2000]

That is total bull ****. the AGW crowd doesn't know about magnetic influence or the effect of the Moon. The moon does come into play. I call it Lunacy. It is an effect of high CO2 concentrations.This guy should get in touch with Judith Lean. I am sure they would agree on a lot of things.
