and the influence on climate change is discussed in this webcast. The 11-year solar cycle exerts a powerful control on Earth's climate as evidenced by the Maunder Minimum (a prolonged period of extraordinary low solar activity) that coincided with the coldest part of the Little Ice Age.

Any objective discussion of the cause(s) of climate change must include this important mechanism. So why isn't it?
