Nir Shariv at EIKE 2013

23 Sep 2013

Nir Shariv of the Racah Institute of Physics in the Hebrew University of Jerusalem can be seen on video addressing the German EIKE conference on solar and cosmic ray connections with climate physics. This is not to say that what he says is embraced by the sceptic community - only that he offers an alternative view, in one respect, and one that doesn't shirk from the idea of electrical effects on the atmosphere of the Earth. His work is not the same as that of Svensmark, and colleagues, but involves cosmic rays, too. He has also looked at the Milky Way's spiral arms and their possible connection with the Ice Ages. He also has a blog at and a description of EIKE can be found at
