Sun Day: A good refresher on how the sun relates to the current global warming

In the spirit of having a basic understanding of climate science, I like to periodically re-visit good articles and videos on the subject. Peter Sinclair has been a pretty consistent source of well-crafted, well-explained videos. This one gives a solid overview of both the misinformation, and the actual info on how the sun has been interacting with our climate over the past few decades. I couldn’t find a transcript, but the auto-generated captions are actually on point for this one:

    Revisiting and recirculating Valuable Old Stuff is a good service, and this video’s very helpful I still hear people talking vaguely about how global warming is part of some “natural cycle.” Maybe it’s an example of the natural cycle by which advanced civilizations screw up their worlds? Not time to give up yet on this one, though.

    If the sun was responsible for the present change in climate on Earth, then we’d expect to the the same trend on the other planets and moons of the solar system.
