The Sun and Climate Change

Solar Activity and Climate Change


Solar activity have an influence on the climate on planet Earth. The question that remains unanswered with a satisfactory certainty is whether it is dominant compared to other effects like CO2.

Based on my experience and knowledge of the field it is done far to little research on the topic, mainly due to politics. It is very dangerous to even ask the questions we need to ask. It is a pity, because asking them is necessary to reduce the non manageable uncertainty of the climate models today.

The Sun is many orders of magnitude larger and energetic than the Earth. However, we do benefit from a protective magnetic field bouncing off enough to make it livable here.

I wish we could look at the Sun in this perspective in a more sober way than what is being done today.
