Likewise on Earth, Milankovitch Cycles are responsible for the series of ice ages we've had for the last 3 million years or so. In other words, global warming and cooling caused by our orbital fluctuations.

Most climatologists see solar output variations as being minor compared to orbital forcing.

Personally, I think the sun may be more variable now than before and may play a bigger role, but I'm not a climatologist (I do read many papers on solar output though).

I think the Martians need to give up their SUVs, just like King Arthur should have given up his Humvee during the Medieval Warm Spell.
