Does solar activity have to KEEP going up to cause warming? Mike Lockwood responds Posted By: floppingaces 3/25/2011 1:07:07 PM Flopping Aces, by Alec Rawls Original Article
My first post on this subject remarked on the number of scientists who assert that late 20th century global warming cannot have been driven by the sun because solar activity was not trending upwards after 1950, even though it remained at peak levels. To follow up, I asked a dozen of these scientists whether solar activity has to KEEP going up to cause warming?
Wouldn’t that be like saying you can’t heat a pot of water by turning the flame to maximum and leaving it there, that you have to turn the heat up gradually to get warming?
