Could reduced sunspots be tied to temperatures on Earth?
Imagine that, the hottest object in the solar system possibly being linked to global warming and/or cooling? Maybe it's not us humans causing climate change but that huge, hot ball of fire in the middle of the solar system? Who would've thought! Really, isn't this just common sense?
I guess not, because later in the same article:
"There are many uncertainties," Jose Abreu, a doctoral candidate in Switzerland, tells National Geographic News. "We don't know the sensitivity of the climate to changes in solar intensity. In my opinion, I wouldn't play with things I don't know."
If we don't know the sensitivity of climate to changes in solar intensity, aren't there too "many uncertainties" related to trying to predict climate change at all?
It seems to me that trying to predict climate change without knowing the sensitivity of the climate to the sun is trying to predict how a bottle will float across the Atlantic ocean without knowing how ocean currents will effect the route. Trying to predict something without understanding arguably the biggest variable seems absurd to me.
