>From the Realclimate article:

The problem is obvious when you look at the statistical results below, with
temperature data (T) in black (NH = northern hemisphere), estimated solar
effect in blue and human effect in orange*.

Obviously, no blue line explains “most” of the warming.

Notting the authors of the peer reviewed climate science paper discussed in
this RealClimate.org article, I knew immediately, without reading the
Realclimate content, that at least one of the co-authors, Wilie Soon, was a
well known fossil fuel industry supported scientist:
How much has the Sun influenced Northern Hemisphere temperature trends? An
ongoing debate

Fossil Fuel Funding

As part of a March 2018 legal case
the cities of San Francisco and Oakland and fossil fuel companies, Soon was
asked to disclose any connections he had to connected parties. He offered
the following response
(emphasis added):

“I have not received any funding for the climate-sensitivity research led
by Christopher Monckton of Brenchley. In the past, I have received
scientific research grants from Exxon-Mobil Foundation, Southern Company
and the Charles G. Koch Foundation for my work on various topics, including
scientific research on the Sun-climate connection.” [98]
