    So I found this site by looking for info on Cosmic rays and the discussion about whether or not it's related to global warming. It turns out I already had a membership from god-knows-when! Anyway I found my way to the solar vs. CO2 debate thread, which is now locked. I did some research on the topic because it really got me interested, and wrote an article on cosmic rays and temperature levels, I'd add it to that other thread but since it's locked I thought I'd start a new one - it seemed to have people interested.

    Anyway, here is my article on why I think cosmic rays do not affect climate.

    Looking forward to many more posts and discussions with you guys
    Jason

    Myself, I have not formed an opinion on Cosmic Rays yet. The factors I have focused on explain to me well enough that AGW is more a natural cause than any other anyway.

    This recent paper seems to support your view.

    This article looks and cosmic radiation and the impact of them on global climate very differently. Definitely different than in the ways you considered them. The researcher seems to have identified interaction between cosmic radiation and flouro/chloro carbons that seem to have contributed to short term global warming.

    Any comments on this angle?

    After writing my initial article on the direct effects of cosmic rays on climate change, I explored the indirect effects and wrote an article on cosmic rays and cloud forming effects on temperature. I didn't specifically assess the flouro-carbon aspect but this article more or less universally covers the effects of cosmic rays, both direct and indirect. Feel free to comment
