Svensmark effect verified — again

Recall last summer Svensmark published his paper verifying the Svensmark effect (correlation of cloud cover with galactic cosmic ray (GCR) intensity, modulated by the solar magnetic field) by observing the effect of Forbush decreases in GCR intensity on clouds over the oceans.  Now other researchers have independently verified the effect by observing periods of significant cloud changes, GCR flux changes, and surface air temperature changes over mid-latitude regions.  They say their results “provide perhaps the most compelling evidence presented thus far of a GCR-climate relationship”.

More extensive coverage is provided by the Hockey Schtick and Watts Up With That.
