Abdussamatov believes that changes in the sun's heat output can account for almost all the climate changes we see on both planets.
Mars and Earth, for instance, have experienced periodic ice ages throughout their histories.
'Man-made greenhouse warming has made a small contribution to the warming seen on Earth in recent years, but it cannot compete with the increase in solar irradiance,' Abdussamatov said.
By studying fluctuations in the warmth of the sun, Abdussamatov believes he can see a pattern that fits with the ups and downs in climate we see on Earth and Mars.
How stunning a concept, that the star at the center of our solar system might be causing temperature changes on this planet! Whoda thought?!
Disciples of the global warming myth, of course, have a different explanation for both planets showing warming at the same time: "pure coincidence."
