Climate Depot headline:

Breakthrough: Scientists Find Hard Evidence Cosmic Rays Influence Earth’s Climate
New evidence suggests that high-energy particles from space known as galactic cosmic rays affect the Earth’s climate by increasing cloud cover, causing an “umbrella effect.”

Watts Up With That headline:

Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez move to declare the climate crisis an official emergency-–
Democrats to introduce resolution in House on Tuesday in recognition of extreme threat  from global heating, after considerable pressure from environmental groups.The activist group Extinction Rebellion has said the declaration is a crucial first step in addressing the crisis.

Zero Hedge headline:

Bombshell Claim: Scientists Find “Man-made Climate Change Doesn’t Exist in Practice”
A new scientific study could bust wide open deeply flawed fundamental assumptions   underlying controversial climate legislation and initiatives such as the Green New Deal, namely, the degree to which ‘climate change’ is driven by natural phenomena vs. man-made issues measured as carbon footprint. Scientists in Finland found “practically no anthropogenic [man-made]climate change” after a series of studies.

During the last hundred years the temperature increased about 0.1°C because of carbon dioxide. The human contribution was about 0.01°C”, the Finnish researchers bluntly state in one among a series of papers.

This has been collaborated by a team at Kobe University in Japan, which has furthered the Finnish researchers’ theory: “New evidence suggests that high-energy particles from space known as galactic cosmic rays affect the Earth’s climate by increasing cloud cover, causing an ‘umbrella effect’,” the just published study has found, a summary of which has been released in the journal Science Daily. The findings are hugely significant given this ‘umbrella effect’ — an entirely natural occurrence  could be the prime driver of climate warming, and not man-made factors.

I’m sure that makes it all perfectly clear, and you know just how to think about the critical problem of the heating of the climate. Glaciers, in Glacier Park and Iceland and Antarctica are growing, by the way.
