You want to be careful about talking about “natural” and “anthropogenic” climate change in the same sentence, because they’re very different things. The post notes that “The dilemma climate specialists face is to separate natural from anthropogenic climate change.” That’s not really true. The dilemma climate scientists have in the short term is to distinguish between anthropogenic change and climate variability. The variables you’re talking about generally take thousands of years to have a major effect, with the exception of volcanoes. Anthropogenic climate change is “forcing” the climate at a rate natural variables never have.

Ok, hey guys. The main source of Earth’s heat is the Sun, so even small variations in solar output can have an impact on the climate. Researchers monitor these changes by observing sunspots and (more recently) satellite measurements

Volcanic activity is well known to change the climate. Climate data from volcanic events indicate that just one large eruption is enough to cause global cooling of around 0.3°C and between 1 and 2 years.
