Apparently caught up in global warming controversies (or about to be)... AnonMoos (talk) 20:56, 16 September 2011 (UTC)
It should be clarified here that the isonisation of gas and following aerosol formation induced by particle radiation really is nothing spectacularly new. The principles have been around for a very long time. Actually Wilson's Cloud Chamber this year celebrates its 100th birthday. Buntrabe 10:16, 29 September 2011 (CET)
Indeed. Is in't it amazing how the same answer to a question must be obtained over and over again, at ever greater expense; particularly when the original answer was never in doubt! The real question being 'is this science'?--Damorbel (talk) 13:54, 5 November 2011 (UTC)
We know as well since long that cloud formation is a process we do not understand well. En detail Atmospheric new-particle formation affects climate and is one of the least understood atmospheric aerosol processes. That said, the recent results confirm the importance of land use patterns impact on climate and will be helpful an various issues, independent of the "truth" of the Svensmark hypothesis.
