Calm, dispassionate scientific language...

From Science Alert:

The paper, titled "Oscillations of the baseline of solar magnetic field and solar irradiance on a millennial timescale," led by mathematician Valentina Zharkova of Northumbria University in the UK, was published in June 2019.

It claimed that human activity was not to blame for the roughly one degree rise in global temperatures since the Industrial Revolution, and therefore we can avoid culpability for the shockingly fast upward trend of global temperatures having devastating effects on communities and ecosystems around the world.

Plus, she's a Russian and so obviously just trying to cause mischief.

B, she is a bit of a trouble maker, that is true. But re-imagine that paragraph after it has been established that the climate has changed (as it has, ever so slightly) for reasons that have nothing to do with CO2.
