Since 1950 years, the sun presents a phase of extraordinary activity. This is a conclusion reached that researchers
the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research, in collaboration with Finnish scientists, in an article published in the journal Physical Revew Letters. The temporal development of solar activity seems to closely follow that of the average temperature at the Earth's surface, which accounts for the influence of the sun on the Earth's climate. However, researchers have shown that the global warming of 30 in recent years can only very partially be attributed to solar activity. As a result, while solar activity influences the climate, it has played only a minor role in the recent global warming.
