  1. Oct 28, 2005 #1
    a friend of mine in university told me to read up on the van allen belt as another argument fro my essay on global warming jsut being part of a giant climate cycle.
    but i didnt really find anything relating to the subject

    The reason why you find little about the Van Allen belt and climate because it's thought that isn't much relationship:

    There is some correlation between solar activity, radio activity and climate:

    Since the Van Allen belt is also about cosmic radio activity, somebody may have suggested a connection.
