subject: solar climate forcing
Thank you for the copy of your Royal Society paper. I have just returned from holiday to
find that the comments I might have made
have been put much more succinctly by David Whitehouse in the Sunday Telegraph and today by
Joseph D'Aleo on the icecap.us website.
In summary, the conclusions cannot be justified from a simple analysis over a short time
frame which is dominated by the problem
of the ACRIM gap, and almost seem to contradict your comments in the preceding two
paragraphs which suggest that there is indeed a solar influence. The need now is to
quantify this influence as Scafetta and West and others have attempted.
It reads almost as if your paper has been hijacked by the Royal Society and others to
answer a TV programme! I hope this is not the case.
