Abstract: The influence of natural cycles on the climate of our planet was very successfully and in detail examined by Milutin Milankovitch. He described mathematically precisely how the movement of the Earth around the Sun over long periods of time is reflected in its climate at different latitudes. Modern researches show the existence of some other natural cycles — astronomical, related to the activity of the Sun and its cycles, and terrestrial, related to periodic processes on Earth such as El Niño and La Niña, which also affect the climate. This paper will discuss all these impacts as well as scientific predictions of the further course of climate change in this century.

Key words: climate change, cycles, Earth, Sun, solar activity
