Why the Climate Does Change
Three reasons are shown why the Earth‘s climate does change:
(1) The strength of the Sun’s magnetic field (a function differential rotation and spin angular momentum and their effects on the solar dynamo. (2) The interaction of that magnetic field to divert or allow passage to Earth the cosmic rays from space (a weak field allows rays to strike Earth, form many more clouds and cool the Earth). (3) The additional orbital angular momentum (which adds to the Sun’s spin angular momentum) due to the motion of the Sun about the center of mass of the solar system (the SSB – the solar system barycenter) which changes due to the position of the Sun and the position of the four major planets.
There is an additional factor for the coming and going of the Ice Ages due to our solar system traveling around the Milky Way Galaxy and intercepting the spiral arms of that Galaxy.
Each of these facts are explained in detail and are due to the work of Svensmark and associates.
