this guy is right. Global warming has far more to do with solar output and the cyclical variations in orbits, precission, eccentricity and tilt.

Not the current warming trend. The current warming trend over the past 150 years -- acclerating since the mid-1980s -- is too fast to be caused by astronomical cycles. Those factors operate on time-scales of 1-10,000 years.

You cannot accurately predict a trend based on a time scale using only 20 years of data with regards to climate change.
