Japanese Scientists Claim Global Warming Not Man Made
Some of Japan's top scientists recently expressed data against the popular belief that global warming is a trend caused by human influence. Going against the generally accepted western idea that human interaction and production of greenhouse gases have contributed to an accelerated warming trend, 3 of the top 5 scientists claim that this is instead part of a natural relationship between the earth and sun.
"We should be cautious, IPCC's theory that atmospheric temperature has risen since 2000 in correspondence with CO2 is nothing but a hypothesis. "
Akasofu calls the post-2000 warming trend hypothetical. His harshest words are reserved for advocates who give conjecture the authority of fact.
"Before anyone noticed, this hypothesis has been substituted for truth... The opinion that great disaster will really happen must be broken."
They cite solar activity for variations in earth's temperatures. The sun goes through cycles of sun spots approximately every 11 years and for the last few years there has been little to no sun spot activity. Also, solar winds are at their lowest point for the last 50 years.
There is a relationship between transported energy and the light emissions from the photosphere and sunspots. It was thought that times of few sunspots are times of lower energy. Satellites were launched in 1980 to research this, and results were contrary to expectations. It became clear that these times were more energetic than periods of high sunspots. Periods of low sunspots have vigorous solar activity.
These (counter-intuitively) increase solar activity though there is not a clear correlation between climate change and solar activity. These scientists call for much more significant testing before any serious conclusions are drawn.
n this way, climate change and solar activity's relationship is inconclusive. It is necessary to increase research efforts into the relationship between Earth's climate fluctuations and solar activity.

What do you think? Is global warming really all our fault?
