Sunshine speeded 1940s Swiss glacier melt

A surge in sunshine more than 60 years ago helped Swiss mountain glaciers melt faster than today, even though warmer average temperatures are being recorded now, Swiss researchers said Monday.

Their study into the impact of solar radiation on Alpine glaciers made the "surprising discovery" that in the 1940s, and especially summer 1947, the ice floes lost the most ice since measurements begin 95 years ago,

The conclusion of this study is that glacial warming is more dependent on sunlight radiation than on average temperatures.

"The surprising thing is that this paradox can be explained relatively easily with radiation," said one the ETHZ researchers, Matthias Huss, in the university's online review.

"This should not lead people to conclude that the current period of global warming is not really as big of a problem for the glaciers as previously assumed," he added.

The researchers found from historic data on three Swiss glaciers, as well as radiation recordings from the eastern Alpine town of Davos, that the level of sunshine in the 1940s was eight percent higher than average and significantly higher than now.

As a result, snow and ice melted by about four percent.'

"Studies have shown that solar radiation can vary substantially due to cloud cover"

The case for CO2 is further discredited!

just go to your basic hardware store buy a co2 tank fill it then open the gauge and watch the frost emerge.

now go to your basic hardware store and buy a high power sodium lamp and shine it at the frost and watch it melt
