'Fluctuations in the sun’s activity may hold clues to the tangible changes in the planet Earth’s climate, Swiss scientists found. Research funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation indicated that human-induced global warming may show a slight decline over the next few decades as the Sun’s current activity is expected to eventually dwindle. This decrease in solar activity may result in a minute decline in the planet Earth’s temperature, the researchers added.
A team of researchers from the Physical Meteorological Observatory Davos (PMOD), the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology, ETH Zurich, and the University of Bern have developed a calculation model to quantify certain effects that the Sun’s activity will contribute to the planet’s temperature change in the next century.
According to the researchers, the calculation model indicated that following a high solar activity in the 1950s, the planet’s temperature is expected to drop by up to 0.5 decrees Celsius once the Sun’s activities dwindle to a minimum.
PMOD director and project lead Werner Schmutz said such temperature decrease would be significant, but will otherwise do little to taper off the human-induced global warming.“We could win valuable time if solar activity declines and slows the pace of global warming a little. This will be no more than borrowed time since the next minimum will inevitably be followed by a maximum,” said Schmutz.'
