The arguments in this book significantly weaken the theory that man made CO2 is controlling global warming. Even today, there is Global warming and cooling depending on the cloud cover caused by the cosmic ray intensity and it's not mankind's fault.
The text can be technically challenging at times but in general the narrative is flowing and always interesting.
I think Svensmark and Calder prove their thesis that the Sun controls the climate on Earth by means of modulating the cosmic rays input.
