Well... NASA have discounted the effect of Solar Cycles on climate trends.... Clickety Click

The Solar Maximumum/Minimum events you mentioned are magnetic activity, sunspots etc, not energy output.

Here's a suitable extract to summarise...

By and large, the space-based observations of the last 35 years have not recorded substantial changes in energy output from the Sun. Nonetheless, scientists include all the influences they can (including solar changes) when studying changes in climate. These estimates suggest that a small decrease in solar irradiance over the last 35 years would have caused a slight cooling of the climate over this time period – but only in the absence of other influences on Earth's climate.

The physics of the situation also doesn't back up the idea that changes in the Sun are a large force behind current climate change.
Thanks, Colin. I'm well aware of the mini ice age from c.1100 AD to 1806 AD.
And how it aligned to Solar activity.

NASA is not even a major source of information on Solar activity, let alone the ultimate authority on the subject.

As Matt has said, we should leave it there.

I’m not sure how or why we have a second landscape thread, but congratulations on finding it!
Oh, the "why" is very easy - this forum is an amalgam of various previous boards, so there's bound to be "redundancy"; I'll fix it - and this time, I'll leave the comments around for a spell; it pays to know a bit of history ;)

EDIT: There's a second comment I should want to add at this point: If you want to know why I *really* don't like what I call "ego"-threads, i.e. new threads instead of posting to existing ones - for the sake of short-time visibility or simply due to laziness: This is why! Those fade away quickly, but stick around and cause this kind of a nuisance. Always, no exception. That's why I never look at them - if you want *me* to see something, don't post to your "own" thread. You'll never "own" a thread. This is a community - not a travesty like FB or Insta!

P.S. Gosh, this needed a lot of edits to get right ... and it's not even worth it. Pity.
