It was the sun, yea the sun, not SUVs

China study points to the sun as climate change forcing factor, details (here.)
Therefore, the driving force of Holocene temperature variations should be properly ascribed to solar activity.The spectrum analysis further illustrates that quasi-100-yr fluctuation of solar activity was probably responsible for temperature variations in northeast Qinghai–Tibet plateau during the past 6000 years."

Nobody doubts that the sun, volcanoes, etc. contribute to natural cooling/warming patterns. If this is the extent of the argument that rightists can bring to bear, I'm amazed that anyone can be convinced. The point is that there is a NEW influence and trend that is not explained by any previous ones, occuring far more rapidly and distinctly. This new influence is beyond the natural equilibrium by at least one standard deviation, and usually far more.
