but I'd be a bit sceptical of the fact that it happens on a
one-day-to-the next basis.
Anyway, I'm of the opinion that an active sun means warmer temps, and
vice-versa. Taking your hypothesis out through a much longer time
period, shouldn't we see a really significant warm-up through periods
of prolonged solar inactivity? It's the opposite, however, that seems
to be true. Turn the sunspots down for a few thousand years, and you
get an ice age.
