A new paper published today in Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics suggests that the relationship proposed by Henrik Svensmark is supported. Svensmark proposes that changes in the sun’s magnetic field modulate the density of Galactic Cosmic Rays (GCRs) which in turn seed cloud formation on Earth, which changes the albedo/reflectivity to affect Earth’s energy balance and hence global climate.

Cosmic rays linked to rapid mid-latitude cloud changes, B. A. Laken , D. R. Kniveton, and M. R. Frogley.
This will make the 3rd International Energy and Climate Conference that much more interesting as Svensmark himself will be one of the distinguished speakers, along with Fred Singer and others.
