Sun Dictates the Climate Change

I have just commented on the environment article posted at Newsweek, entitled “Which of These Is Not Causing Global Warming Today?” I believe the article’s title is quite irrelevant and confusing. The cause of global warming is still being debated by politicians and economists and there is no proof or scientific experiment that will provide concrete evidence that other contributory factors are present except that of the sun.


My comment runs like this: Carbon dioxide is much less the cause of global warming. This is a natural cycle of the earth that maintains and supports life. If the greenhouse effect is being considered as the warming suspect, it should be water vapor as the contributory factor as it is the major component of greenhouse gases. It is an elementary fact that the sun is the source of warm climate, the source of renewable solar energy, and the source … of our itchy prickly heat. Climate change varies from place to place as the earth pole or axis change every year due to wobbling rotation of the earth –the mark at the Ceremonial South Pole is being moved every year as its exact location shifted over time.


Ice is prevalent in the north or south poles because it is not the direct hit of the solar rays of the sun. The geographic poles receive minimal sunlight compared to east and west or earth’s equator where the temperatures are high all year round. South pole is located in the middle of a continental land mass and colder than the North pole which is in the middle of the ocean, the depository of heat where ice melt. In either of the poles, it may be all night throughout the year and daytime in another year.


This is how I understand the varying temperature of the earth responsible to climate change. Cooling and warming cycles are the earth’s natural phenomena and any abrupt changes will imply the terrifying existence of living things.


There is no other factor that will influence the warming changes of the earth. It is only by the sun during the solar maximum when sunspots and solar flares are predominant in a cycle of eleven years.
