So does this have anything to do with global warming?

Re: Perhaps you should read a better newspaper?
Here is the important takeaway from that article.

quote:
Some climate change "sceptics" claim that this process, rather than the burning of fossil fuels, can explain much of the Earth's recent rise in temperature.

Climate scientists point out that there is evidence to show that the sustained rise in global temperatures over the past 15 years cannot be explained by cosmic ray activity. They also point to a vast body of research pointing to rising carbon dioxide (CO2) levels to be the cause. According to Professor Lockwood, it is very unlikely that variations in cosmic rays have played a significant role in recent warming.

I guess this completely undermines the article GDR presented.

Seems like Lorne Gunter does not allow things as trivial as facts to get in the way of his ideology.

Here is a review of a previous column by him.

Fact checking, National Post style: Lorne Gunter on global cooling

quote:
In the wake of the kerfuffle concerning George Wills column on sea ice in the Washington Post, Lorne Gunter has upped the ante in the Canadian daily newspaper National Post with a particularly error-ridden and nonsensical column on a favourite theme the supposed intellectual dishonesty of climate scientists who refuse to accept the fact of global cooling.

A key issue in the Will case was the apparent failure of fact checkers and editors to catch what should have been obvious errors. Like Will, Gunter appears to lean on tidbits from such reliable sources as U.S. senator James Inhofes climate disinformation clearing house (run by aide Marc Morano), or blogs like Stephen Mcintyres Climateaudit.org or Anthony Watts Wattsupwiththat.com. Gunter then proceeds to somehow mangle even those dubious assertions.

Judging by this latest column, any checking appears designed to ensure that no actual facts actually appear. If so, the fact checkers have done a particularly outstanding job.
