The Sun and global warming

Further evidence (via Gay and Right) that at least part of global warming is caused by the Sun:
At least 10 to 30 percent of global warming measured during the past two decades may be due to increased solar output rather than factors such as increased heat-absorbing carbon dioxide gas released by various human activities, two Duke University physicists report.
Good work - keep on chipping away at the misconceptions.
Also see this excellent EU Rota post (by the way, reports of the blog's death have been greatly exaggerated...):
As the global warmists would like everyone to believe, each year is warmer than the last, each month is warmer than it was in previous years. Unless the US has let a no-bid contract to Halliburton for climate control over North America, temperatures should be warmer and warmer, year after year. Well, what does the data say for our friend October? Per those right-wingers at NOAA, from 1895 to 2004:
The average monthly US temperature for the month of October is 54.75 degrees Fahrenheit. The lowest average monthly US temperature for October was 49.46 degrees Fahrenheit in 1925. The highest average monthly US temperature for October was 60.03 degrees Fahrenheit in 1963 (what the .... you mean it isn't 2004?).
Do read the whole thing.
