Aussie blogger Jo Nova is unveiling a brand new climate model that her husband, Dr. David Evans, has been working on. It's all very complex (to a layman) and concerns an old denier favorite: the sun.

This "BIG NEWS" is detailed in a string of posts. The main point of the posts — hidden behind mountains of technical statistics and discussion of "notch filters" (which are used in electrical engineering to filter out audio feedback) — is that greenhouse gasses don't cause climate change. But the authors are puzzled to find that the Earth didn't cool in response to the Sun's 11 year cycle of cooling. By way of explanation, they find some sort of unnatural forcing has made it so the Earth's temperature isn't responding directly to the cycle of the sun, causing temperatures to increase as the Earth receives less solar radiation.

While we're sure they won't come to the obvious conclusion that greenhouse gasses are trapping heat and causing the planet to warm, we eagerly await their findings. It's been hinted that it may have something to do with cosmic rays, so it should be entertaining!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
