Other factors in warming occur naturally. The Sun’s radiative energy does change over time, so it can contribute to either warming or cooling—warming as it increases, cooling as it decreases. Another natural contributor to temperature trends is the level of volcanic eruptions. Large eruptions throw into the sky enormous amounts of dust and ash that are rapidly pulled into the air moving around the earth. Because the particles are small and the air is moving quickly, they remain suspended for a year or two before completely falling out.
