Wow. The Sun? I am pretty sure the Sun hasn't gotten hotter in over a million years.

Steve do you really believe the sun's output is constant?

How long did it take to fill the air in L.A. with smog? Certainly not Millions of years!

Is anything constant?

It may have, stars go through all kinds of stages that determine their temp, intesity, and size.

The sun isn't any exeption.

True... But there are billions of years between a phase, and the sun doesn't just change temperature in the course of 100 years. When you go outside and it is a very sunny day, is it because the sun is shining brighter??? NO, there is less "stuff" between the sun and the surface of the earth, i.e. clouds, pollution, etc... The sun is consistent to a point... as in, the only time it is not consistent, is when it is moving through phases, which is constantly, and a very linear line of decreasing/increasing temperature, which is over the course of billions of year. So it is safe to say that over the course of 300 years, the sun's temperature will be the same.

Really! I seem to recall that there was a mini ice age in the 1600's or 1700's. Not exactly billions of years ago. And since the sun is only around 4.5 billion years old that doesn't exactly leave room for very many changes that take billions of years.

The suns cycle of sunspot activity is an 11 year period. Just a bit shorter than billions.

If the sun can just magically change temperatures, then why can't the earth have a cycle of absorbing and releasing heat and compounds? I strongly feel that the earth just naturally has cycles of cooling and warming, that can be attributed to compounds in the air, not the sun heating and cooling.

There are alot of theories that can explain climate change.

I feel that humans are not causing climate change. The only reason we should go solar, wind and electric is because it is cheaper.

Correct! The sun doesnt rotate as a rigid body like the earth does. It actually rotates faster near it's equator which twists its magnetic field lines. When one of those lines punctures the surface of the sun, it creates a cooler region called a sun spot. The number of spots reaches a maximum every 11 years:


There are also longer (than the 11 years) periods of increased and decreased sun spots:


It only makes sense that as the power output (shown in the above chart) increases and decreases, that the amount of energy and heat received by the earth would follow suit.

Ah, the Little Ice Age... some contributing factors that are theorized about:

1.The sun's output decreased about 1/2 of 1%

2. The midieval time period was unusually warm, melted off enough fresh water into the ocean to reduce salinity and effectively shutting down the thermal haline conveyor.

3. The most popular theory... ice core samples show a huge amount of sulfur crystals were in our stratosphere due to an average of 10 major volcanoe eruptions per 100 years that were roughly 100 times larger than St. Helens each. The sulfur crystals reflect sunlight back out into space. A modern example - The year without a summer, Google it.
