Svensmark - Did Exploding Stars Help Life On Earth To Thrive? Or, Is That You Fluffy? Or, Take Your CO2 & Shove It
Just something I ran across. Yes, this is the same Svensmark who "In 1997 with Eigil Friis-Christensen popularised a theory that linked galactic cosmic rays and global climate change mediated primarily by variations in the intensity of the solar wind, which they have termed cosmoclimatology."
[link to en.wikipedia.org]

Todays article follows the same theory;
"When the most massive stars exhaust their available fuel and reach the end of their lives, they explode as supernovae, tremendously powerful explosions that are briefly brighter than an entire galaxy of normal stars. The remnants of these dramatic events also release vast numbers of high-energy charged particles known as galactic cosmic rays (GCR). If a supernova is close enough to the Solar System, the enhanced GCR levels can have a direct impact on the atmosphere of the Earth. Prof. Svensmark looked back through 500 million years of geological and astronomical data and considered the proximity of the Sun to supernovae as it moves around our Galaxy, the Milky Way. In particular, when the Sun is passing through the spiral arms of the Milky Way, it encounters newly forming clusters of stars. These so-called open clusters, which disperse over time, have a range of ages and sizes and will have started with a small proportion of stars massive enough to explode as supernovae..."

i.e. This is the man who would know if 'Fluffy' was going to kill us all.

Somewhat interesting...

Here's part of the second link; A Stellar Revision Of The Story Of Life
[link to thegwpf.org]

"Today the Royal Astronomical Society in London publishes (online) Henrik Svensmark’s latest paper entitled “Evidence of nearby supernovae affecting life on Earth”. After years of effort Svensmark shows how the variable frequency of stellar explosions not far from our planet has ruled over the changing fortunes of living things throughout the past half billion years...In Svensmark’s new paper an equally concise theory, that cosmic rays from exploded stars cool the world by increasing the cloud cover, leads to amazing explanations, not least for why evolution sometimes was rampant and sometimes faltered. In both senses of the word, this is a stellar revision of the story of life..."

Anthony is on it. Top post at WUWT, the comments should be interesting;

Svensmark’s Cosmic Jackpot: “Evidence of nearby supernovae affecting life on Earth”

"Note: I’m going to leave this as a sticky “top post” for a day or so. New stories appear below.

Nigel Calder asks us to republish this post for maximum exposure. He writes:

Well, I finished going over it once, I'm going to have to go over it a few times to be satisfied. I have a feeling, if you look in the right spots, you are going to be hearing a lot about this paper.
