GRAPH ON GLOBAL WARMING AND SOLAR IRRADIANCE
This graph shows an evaluation of the increase in Solar Irradiance (green line) and global warming since 1600 AD (blue line). The current warm period begun in 1690 AD (blue arrow) and it has continued until date. Coincidentally, the increase in the Solar Irradiance begun to increase in 1690 AD (green arrow). The Industrial Era begun in 1850 AD. The evidence confirms that the Solar Irradiance is closely related with global warming.
The carbon dioxide concentration started to increase in 1876, a date by far after the beginning of global warming. Evidently, the anthropogenic global warming idea merely is political propaganda, almost a religion, it is not science.
