It cannot be denied that mankind has caused the strengthening of the greenhouse effect with carbon dioxide emissions. Its influence on the climate varies in different parts of the globe. In addition there are seasonal changes within the same area. Climate researchers also speak of natural variations, that must be kept separate from changes caused by our actions. These two factors, and their combined effects, constitute the circumstances we must live with. It has been said these natural variations are impossible to predict. This disadvantage no longer exists.
Our better knowledge of the meteorology based on the whole solar system and the development of the weather scores has strengthened our understanding that all the heavenly bodies that circle the Sun contribute to the Earth's weather each in their own way - and with different strengths and timings. The effect of the nearest ones lasts for shorter periods of time and the more distant ones for longer periods, according to their distance. Mercury circles the Sun in 88 days and it takes Sedna about 11,500 years for one rotation.
In practice, however, it would be impossible and impractical to focus our inspection on all the satellites of the Sun. At this point we have found it best to include in the weather scores, in addition to the planets, only the largest transneptunic bodies, of which Pluto is one. It can be assumed that the influences of the smaller bodies would be submerged under stronger influences.
The farther the satellites are from the Sun, the longer they are reflected in the weather for one element area. The periods of weather caused by these most distant heavenly bodies are actually so long that their influences cannot be seen in everyday weather change. Instead they can only be distinguished in extended climate curves from which short changes have been eliminated. (See the comparisons in the diagrams)
When it turned out that Sedna has a strong connection to the coldness of the upper atmosphere, interest awoke in reviewing its slow movements in the different areas of the elements. A surprising discovery was thus made: at the same time as the climate started to warm up alarmingly fast - around 1975 - Sedna also moved to the area of the warmth element. From this developed the idea of placing all the slower planets and the largest objects of the Kuiper Belt in a diagram that shows their location in the different element areas over the course of many centuries.
The diagram made this way allows us to better compare different periods of time to each other and makes it easier to evaluate which part of climate warming is caused by human activities and which part by cosmic factors. It also shows how the situation develops into the future.
Although there is currently a lot of debate concerning the true figures the charts about climate change should be depicting, there is no doubt that the interference of mankind in nature's own regulation systems influences them on many levels. Various natural phenomena will become increasingly severe and unbalanced.
Our responsibility to our planet, the nature and the atmosphere is not diminishing. Better control over carbon dioxide emissions, protection and cleansing of our lakes, rivers and seas, better waste management and increased recycling, preserving of natural diversity and countless other things - among them the questionable genetic engineering - are still questions, whose answers have a tremendous impact on our lives.
