It says no such thing. You are just makin' $#!+ up again. What it actually
says is that SOLAR
activity (not SUNSPOT
activity, you are factually wrong about that, too) doesn't account for ALL of the warming seen in the thirty years up to the time of the paper's publication in 2004 (not "the last" thirty years, you are factually wrong about that, too).
You like to make a lot of factually wrong claims, don't you?
so it contradicts any causative claim between solar activity and recent global warming.
That is just flat false, as proved above (aside from the fact that there is
no recent global warming, despite continued exponential increase in CO2). The fact that genetics cannot account for all of the gain in a child's height between age 13 and 14 does not mean there is no causative link between genetics and height.
See what it's like to demonstrate some understanding of scientific inference?
So again, you are just factually -- as well as logically, scientifically, and morally -- wrong.
