Do the Earth’s volcanoes emit more CO2 than human activities? Research findings indicate that the answer to this frequently asked question is a clear and unequivocal, “No.” Human activities, responsible for some 36,300 million metric tons of CO2 emissions in 2008 [Le Quéré et al., 2009], release at least a hundred times more CO2 annually than all the world’s degassing subaerial and submarine volcanoes (Gerlach, 2010).
The most significant climate impacts from volcanic injections into the stratosphere come from the conversion of sulfur dioxide to sulfuric acid, which condenses rapidly in the stratosphere to form fine sulfate aerosols. The aerosols increase the reflection of radiation from the Sun back into space, cooling the Earth's lower atmosphere or troposphere.

Yes it is real but guess what. Is is happening on other planets as well.
The sun is going though some changes. It does that from time to time. It is just that we human were not around the last time it happened. If there were any one around they sure did not write about it.
Yes and guess what - that thread was debunked on page 3. But of course most people don't bother reading the details, only the headlines.
The Sun's past influence can be evaluated through proxy data, and in the meantime it has been closely monitored by satellites for the last 3 decades. It is showing a cooling trend:
