Submission + - A stellar revision of the story of life (wordpress.com)

sycodon writes: Today the Royal Astronomical Society in London publishes (online) Henrik Svensmark’s latest paper entitled “Evidence of nearby supernovae affecting life on Earth”. After years of effort Svensmark shows how the variable frequency of stellar explosions not far from our planet has ruled over the changing fortunes of living things throughout the past half billion years.

It has profound implications on all manner of flagship theories, including AGW.

The paper is available here.
