Abstract

It is Earth's place in space that determine our climate. Sun with the planets are traveling through a galaxy, the Milky Way and pass through galaxy arms with clouds of dust and magnetic fields. This gives climate variability and geological time scales. Near and distant exploding stars send showers of particles (cosmic rays) into the solar system. Energetic particles are stopped by the sun and the Earth's magnetic field, while particles of higher energies collide with particles in our atmosphere and produce daughter particles that can lead to increased cloud formation. The effect is marked in a few days after a heavy shower of cosmic particles. Also variations in the Earth's axis tilt and orbit causes climate variations - then with periods from 20 000 and up. In this article we look at climate variability with periods from 5 to 100 years, that may be caused by orbiting the moon and planets. In a later article we will explain how the sun as a variable star, affecting Earth's climate. (AG)
