You may find this You-Tube video interesting. Be aware in advance, though, that this Solar physicist and meteorologist Piers Corbyn is one of the leading sceptics of the theory of man-made climate change. My purpose in providing the link here is to emphasise the point the Sun is the main force that governs weather patterns on Earth. As he points out, the main channels of communication from Sun to Earth are radiation and charged particles. View it with an open mind and decide for yourself if it makes sense to you.
