From the TallBloke blog...It is my pleasure to publish this guest post by Tim Cullen, an independent solar system researcher. His previous post here didn’t get the attention it deserved due to the other events occurring around the same time, so take a look at that too. Tim Cullen has generously given me permission to add a link to a full pdf copy of this article. Please disseminate it widely.
The problem with Total Solar Irradiance [TSI] is two fold:
Firstly: Scientists aren’t Climatologists.
Secondly: Climatologists aren’t Scientists.
Let me explain.
Scientists have been using satellites since 1979 to measure Total Solar Irradiance.
The current generation of measurements come from the state-of-the-art satellite mission called the Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment [SORCE]:
The Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment (SORCE) is a NASA-sponsored satellite mission that provides state-of-the-art measurements of incoming X-ray, ultraviolet, visible, near-infrared, and total solar radiation.
SORCE measures the Sun’s output with the use of state-of-the-art radiometers, spectrometers, photodiodes, detectors, and bolometers engineered into instruments mounted on a satellite observatory.

The following comments were left by Tim Cullen at tallbloke.wordpress.com on the topic of TSI, SORCE and a signature...
Very interesting subject…
Clive Best also picked up on this “lunar” signature…(above)
The signature shows increased TSI at Full Moon:
Personally, I am very interested in trying to understanding “cause and effect”.
