[ RadSafe ] Solar radiation causes global warming

Hi Otto,
If you look closely at the graph, you will notice that the data stops 
somewhere in the 1980s. I believe that's when the authors noticed (or were 
told of) a mistake in their analysis and the graph has never been updated 
since. Someone has extended the x-axis to make it appear as if the data was 
current and the analysis had not been discredited 20 years ago.

The solar irradiance has been pretty constant since 1960, see 
http://www.junkscience.com/Greenhouse/aerosol.gif (I hope no one considers 
the junkscience website as a environmentalist alarmist mouthpiece.) It 
appears that solar irradiance and temperature correlate OK until ~ 1945 and 
then the relationship totally falls apart.
