Cosmic rays cause global warming

Well, why not? Everything else does.

But seriously, the author of the study – a highly respected scientist – proposes that cosmic rays from outer space influence cloud formation, which impacts temperatures on Earth. This is supported by research from NASA, the University of Kansas, and the Royal Society of Britain.

The study claims that warming and cooling periods in the Earth’s history are closely tied to fluctuations in our planet’s magnetic field, which protects us from most cosmic rays. The paper acknowledges that greenhouse gases from pollution may amplify these trends.
