How much do changes in the sun’s activity level affect climate change?

    There is a lot of scientific research which closely relates solar activity to climate. Since the sun is the driving force behind all weather on the planet, even slight variations in energy output can have far reaching consequences. However, most observations of the sun indicate there are several cycles of variability, ranging from decades to hundreds to thousands of years from peak to minimum. The true role of the sun’s variability is ambiguous with respect to global warming because most of these cycles fail to match up with the recent warming of the globe. In addition, the increased levels of Carbon Dioxide and other contaminants in the atmosphere make conditions today unlike those in the past. This means previous global climate changes have only secondary relevance with respect to the change occurring today.
