|REPORTS OF GLOBAL DIMMING|
|FROM BBC NEWS, January 13, 2005, Story by David Sington:|
Scientists have reached the disturbing conclusion that the amount of solar energy reaching the Earth's surface has been reduced... the effect was first noticed by Dr Gary Stanhill, an English scientist doing research in Israel when he compared Israeli sunlight records from the 1950's with current ones.
Dr Stanhill, was astonished to find a "staggering 22% drop in the sunlight..." Intrigued, he searched records from all around the world, and found the same story almost everywhere he looked.
The amount of sunlight reaching the Earth's surface had fallen by 10% over the USA, nearly 30% in parts of the former Soviet Union, 16% in parts of the British Isles and an alarming 37% in Hong Kong."
