The Climate Control Knob

Sunspot Numbers – Maunder Minimum – Wikipedia

Prior to the widespread adoption of the superstition that a 0.0001 mole fraction increase in CO2 over the past century controls the climate, scientists took a more rational approach.

The first director of NCAR – Walter Orr Roberts – was a brilliant solar physicist. He understood that the sun controlled earth’s weather.

In 1973, Roberts predicted a drought based on sunspot cycles.

The drought occurred, exactly as he predicted.


In 1951, Roberts discovered a critical relationship between solar activity and weather.


In 1967, National Geographic understood that the sun controls glaciers.

In 1931, meteorologists were certain about the relationship between sunspots and the weather.

In 1936, the Australian Medical Congress was certain about the relationship between sunspots and natural disasters.

In 1932, scientists showed a close correspondence between sunspot cycles and past climate.

In 1994, astronomers showed a correlation between the length of sunspot cycles and Earth’s temperature.

The relationship between sunspots and grain prices has long been known.

This idea was first proposed by British astronomer William Herschel in 1801, and confirmed 200 years later.

Scientists now claim that a 0.0001 mole fraction increase in CO2 over the past century controls the climate.  This is because the Sun can’t be controlled, scientists can’t pretend they know how to prevent bad weather, and politicians can’t use sunspots as an excuse to raise taxes and control energy policy.

The 1:10,000 increase in atmospheric CO2 over the past century is equivalent to packing an extra two people into Madison Square Garden
