From Global Warming Art
The sun is the ultimate source of nearly all energy at the Earth's surface, and consequently drives climate. It is widely believed that variations in solar activity have played a major role in past climate changes, but that solar changes are too small to play more than a minor role in recent global warming (e.g. Stott et al. 2003, Ammann et al. 2007).
