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 follow very closely that of the average temperature at the earth's surface, which accounts for the influence of the sun on the terrestrial climate. However, the researchers showed that the global warming of the 30 years can only be partially attributed to solar activity. As a result, if solar activity influences the climate, it has played only a minor role in recent global warming.
