Alternative explanation for Global Warming

There is a alternative theory out there that seeks to explain the global rise in temperature as observed in the past years. Theorists have reason to believe that the sole contributor to rising temperatures here on Earth is due to the Sun.

Our Sun goes through periods of high and lows, and has hotspots. The Sun, according to past recorded cycles, is in the period where it flares up and expulses more heat. It is so called in the "high" period of its cycle, such that it radiates out more heat, which we subsequently also experience here on Earth.

However, protagonists of this theory say that the theory of increasing carbon emissions trapping more heat, and the like, is a way mankind has brought it upon itself to settle the issues that it thinks it can handle. One cannot simply lay back and do nothing, on the simple gamble of if which theory is right, and thus those who support the theory of Global Warming have convieniently left out this alternative sunspot theory.

Barry's Response - Sunspots are well known to contribute to the global climatic cycle. This drawing shows the last four hundred years worth of activity and a cross-comparison of the data would show at least some correlation of solar activity with recorded temperatures (and their proxies).

Every eleven years or so, the solar magnetic field goes through a complete cycle, some stronger than others. We can also see what looks like a multi-century cycle forming in the data as well. This takes us from the Maunder Minimum of the 1600's to our Modern Maximum.

This cycle accounts for a significant percentage of the global warming recently witnessed.
