Scafetta Paper: Solar and climate oscillations are linked to planetary motion

“These results clearly indicate that both solar and climate oscillations are linked to planetary motion and, furthermore, their timing can be reasonably hindcast and forecast for decades, centuries and millennia.”

  1. If this paper is claiming that the motions of Jupiter and Saturn affect the Earth’s climate, there is a 99.99% chance it is “Junk Science” itself. (Especially when you’re supposed to pay $30 to read it!) The gravitation effect of those planets on earth is infinitesimal, and their magnetic effects are so weak as to be virtually unmeasurable.

  2. this could be an interesting read, pity it’s behind a pay wall……isn’t big oil funding this sort of information?
    Us climate agnostics have been on to this one for a while.

  3. I expect that the causation will be found to be the coupling of the solar and Jovian magnetic fields that I have long suspected to have a great influence. I’m not sure Saturn has a strong enough magnetic field to be very important. Someone with the appropriate background should run the calcs.

  4. I am instantly suspicious of claims involving ‘are linked to’. Inflated claims resting more on correlation than causation, and all that. If the headline contained ‘are caused by’, I would be more encouraged. But, being a skeptic, I want to see the data and methodology. This is especially true because climate models consistently fail in hindcasting. Demonstrating skill in that direction could be vastly important.

  5. Steve, since this document costs $30 to read and the language is not such that common people can readily understand, can you simplify the findings? It seems to justify what we scptics have been saying for a long time.
