Green Movement Causing Global Warming

No, I am not referring to all the hot air they produce.

I'm referring to a new article appearing in NewScientist.com which says that three decades of cleaning up the air in Europe has allowed more sunshine in, leading to higher than expected warming:

Christian Ruckstuhl of the Institute for Atmospheric and Climate Science in Switzerland and colleagues took aerosol concentrations from six locations in northern Europe, measured between 1986 and 2005, and compared them with solar-radiation measurements over the same period. Aerosol concentrations dropped by up to 60 per cent over the 29-year period, while solar radiation rose by around 1 watt per square metre.
I for one am highly supportive of all efforts towards cleaner air. But why can't the global warming alarmists honest enough to admit ALL the causes for the small amount of warming we've seen?

This actually made me laugh out loud.
