Does the Sun drive climate change?

Jo Nova:
The central mystery in climate science is the Sun.  ... Stephen Wilde has a theory:
In essence: The Sun affects the ozone layer through changes in UV or charged particles. When the Sun is more active there is more ozone above the equator and less over the poles, and vice versa. ... Thus the Sun’s UV and charged particles modulate the solar heating of the Earth. ...
 the Andersson “energetic electron” paper
The new paper by Andersson et al builds on the hypothesis that ozone is influential and a potential mechanism to amplify solar factors. It adds energetic electron precipitation (EEP) to spectral changes in UV, which is a significant step forward. ... Observations of climate changes across the last thousand years suggest that it must be so....
