More wacky "science": We are getting 15% less sunlight than we used to yet the earth is still getting warmer? You figure it! See also my post of 12th. The truth appears to be that warming effects tend to be self-cancelling -- something never allowed for in the scare stories

"Thanks to thicker clouds and growing air pollution, much of the Earth's surface is receiving about 15 per cent less sunlight than it did 50 years ago, according to Michael Roderick, a climate researcher at Australian National University in Canberra.

"Global dimming means the transmission of sunlight through the atmosphere is decreasing," Mr Roderick said. "Just look out the window when you fly into New York or to California - it's dimmer," said Beate Liepert, a climatologist at Columbia University in New York."
