Sun not guilty of warming earth - latest
Scientists have produced further compelling evidence showing that modern-day climate change is not caused by changes in the Sun's activity.
The research contradicts a favoured theory of climate "sceptics", that changes in cosmic rays coming to Earth determine cloudiness and temperature.
As far as I can tell from the BBC report (and a google for more details) the scientists have found there is "no significant link" (BBC) or "a very weak contribution" Terry to cloud cover from cosmic rays. This is pouring doubt on a proposed mechanism not on the actual results which is the global temperature that we are worried about. For more on the bigger picture see, for instance this as a starting point:

Having failed to find one mechanism our hero returns to the comfy fold of another unproven mechanism with an evangelical zeal. He has failed to find the angels on the end of a pin so they must be on the ends of needles.
The BBC report ends:
According to Terry Sloan, the message coming from his research is simple.
"We tried to corroborate Svensmark's hypothesis, but we could not; as far as we can see, he has no reason to challenge the IPCC - the IPCC has got it right.
"So we had better carry on trying to cut carbon emissions."
