Renowned Indian physicist Udupi Ramachandra Rao reviewed the role of cosmic rays in global warming, which is greater than previously thought, says Indian newspaper Telegraph.
According to him, the UN overstates the contribution of human emissions of greenhouse gases through the warming of the planet and underestimates the influence of cosmic radiation on clouds and climate.
Conclusions Rao, who in 80 years led the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), published in the study, which was presented this week in Goa.
Scientists believe that the contribution of human activity to increase in global temperature over the last century (estimated at 0.75 degrees) is 60%, significantly lower than the official estimates of Experts. Rao came to this conclusion after a thorough analysis of long-term measurements of the intensity of cosmic radiation.
Meanwhile, the Russian academician Professor Andrei Kapitsa believes that the human impact on global warming trends are even lower. According to him, the activity of the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajokull in one day exceeded emissions small European country during the same period, and the main reason for changing the temperature of the oceans today are evaporating.
Scientists believe that the elementary particles from space — such as neutrons and electrons — contribute to the emergence of clouds in the Earth's atmosphere. Reduction in the intensity of cosmic radiation causes the global cloudiness decreases, the surface of the planet gets more cosmic rays and it is very hot, and helping to warming.
Minister of Environment and Forestry of India, Jairam Ramesh, commenting out the book, said that she does not deny the impact of greenhouse gas warming, but reinterprets it.
