In recent years there has been considerable interest in theories that cosmic rays could influence weather and climate. The best-publicized mechanism for such a link is Henrik Svensmark’s theory of ‘ion-mediated nucleation’ (IMN). A second, less well-known mechanism, called ‘charge modulation of aerosol scavenging’ (CMAS), involves the downward fair-weather electric current density Jz. Although factors that influence Jz have been shown to be correlated with a number of meteorological variables, there are a number of apparent difficulties with the CMAS mechanism, and these apparent weaknesses are now discussed.
