Dung, that quote came from an interview last year - the underlying Welt Online article is dated 15.07.2011, It caused a bit of a stir at the time - rightly so as the research supported (at least to some degree) a Svensmark effect.

I suspect the Principia article is just displaying the current date at the top of the page.

Here's a link to some discussion at WUWT

an interesting perspective from Texas

http://blog.chron.com/climateabyss/2012/04/an-extremely-unusual-march/#comments

it is quite thought-provoking but it feels right that "It sounds paradoxical, but if you think about it a bit you’ll realize it’s true: the more extreme the temperature anomaly, the smaller the relative contribution from climate change and the greater the importance of other weather factors".

CERN Chief Forbids Scientists Discussing CLOUD Experiment

Nigel Calder reports:

Although still very busy with other work, I keep looking out for results from the CLOUD experiment at CERN in Geneva, which is testing Henrik Svensmark’s hypothesis that cosmic rays help to make clouds. They are due for publication this summer. All I have just now is a startling remark by Rolf-Dieter Heuer, Director General of CERN, in an interview by Welt Online a few days ago.

An Engineering Approach to Understanding the Climate Change Controversy - NASA


The first of two planned symposiums was held on September 12, 2011 and was quite successful with 77 people attending. The meeting was conducted as planned, (see agenda below for details on the schedule and the speakers) We had a significant amount of discussions between the panels members and the audience especially during the panel discussions and after the formal meeting. Briefing charts used by the speakers during the meeting will be posted on our web site within the next few weeks as they become available. Thanks to all the speakers for their excellent presentations and for allowing us to put their briefing charts on our web site.

These are the types of meetings that are not promoted by the media, well worth a read through the presentation notes!

More Good News!

Scientists monitoring water flow in streams at test sites across the USA have found, unexpectedly, that the global warming seen in the late 20th century had basically no effect on most of the ecosystems they studied.

Are we finally seeing a shift in attitude towards alarmism?

Good News!

The amount of floating ice in the Arctic's Bering Sea - which had long been expected to retreat disastrously by climate-Cassandra organisations such as Greenpeace - reached all-time record high levels last month, according to US researchers monitoring the area using satellites.

... will they ever admit it and mend their ways??

Will a leopard ever change its spots?

More disgrace for the IPCC but will they ever admit it and mend their ways?? See here:

This could be important. It will certainly be useful:
The unbridled advocacy of CO2 being the major cause of climate change is unbecoming of NASA’s history of making an objective assessment of all available scientific data prior to making decisions or public statements.

Extract from open letter to the NASA Administrator just published on WUWT from experienced ex-employees of NASA: http://wattsupwiththat.com/2012/04/10/hansen-and-schmidt-of-nasa-giss-under-fire-engineers-scientists-astronauts-ask-nasa-administration-to-look-at-emprical-evidence-rather-than-climate-models/

So many have been convinced, or at least been able to avoid thinking things through, by deferring to authorities such as the now shabby Royal Society, that this little undermining of NASA's odious role in the alarm business is at least a little bit encouraging for those of us who have failed to be convinced by the case for alarm over CO2.
