      Five factors that determine the temperature of the earth     are solar radiation, which can be prevented by changing the     incoming solar radiation, by changing the fraction of solar     radiation that is reflected, and by altering the long wave     radiation from Earth back towards space. Volcanic eruption,     because the dust blocks the...
