Modern concepts of the physical mechanisms providing a potential link between solar as well as cosmic factors and climate are described. Possible climatic effects of solar luminosity, fluxes of galactic and solar cosmic rays, UV and microwave radiation are considered. A survey of the most important experimental evidence of the reality of solar-cosmic influence on climate is presented.

Keywords: Cosmic rays, solar-climatic relationship, solar irradiance.
