That description is at the bottom of this article: SOON AND BRIGGS: Global-warming fanatics take note, Sunspots do impact climate."
Briggs has an interesting website where I found the article referenced. Briggs was all the rage back in April when Bill Whittle made the video below claiming Briggs had posted the "Greatest sentence ever written" on his website.
Briggs regularly debunks statistical errors and claims. I recommend his website highly. I regard him as a scientist with integrity, a truly open mind and a love of truth. Consider this bit of Briggs' wisdom:
When and if a theory describes reality without error it is no longer a theory but truth. If a theory does not describe reality perfectly, then it is not true. To love a theory over truth is the mark of madness. Or of Enlightenment. Or, nowadays often, of tenure.But I digress. Here is why I'm not a scientist.
In his sunspots article, Briggs reproduces the following graph with the following description:
The graph shows almost an exact correlation between solar radiation and daytime high temperatures.
What? Am I wrong or is this graph simply an illustration of the obvious, i.e., it gets hotter when the sun's out?
God bless Briggs for being a scientist and being interested in and writing about the apparently obvious. I couldn't do it.
The worst part is the global warming "scientists" Briggs is criticizing don't see and don't believe in what's obvious to the rest of us.
How does Briggs maintain his cool, scientific detachment in the face of such idiocy?
Do you think the global warming "scientists" will change their mind after Briggs took the time to spell the truth out for them in words and a picture?
My bet is "no," because of the truth contained in Briggs' greatest sentence ever written:
The love of theory is the root of all evil.
