THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: Settled science: New study 'shows that atmospheric gases can help clouds form in a way no one had ever considered'
Scientific American reports today, "a new study shows that atmospheric gases can help clouds form in a way no one had ever considered" and, in perhaps the understatement of the year, that "Although scientists may have a better handle on clouds, even they don’t know it all." The uncertainties with respect to clouds greatly exceed the alleged effect of CO2, such as recent papers demonstrating an increase in US sunshine has had 4.4 times more effect than greenhouse gases since 1996 and that an observed decrease in cloud cover alone could account for all global warming observed since the ice age scare of the 1970's.

That’s what FOIA compliance officers are for, and even my own little local University has one. – Anthony
