The Planets (the gods of the ancients) Control Weather Cycles?

In my latest 'Revelation' research I came across this new post, that claims that the major planets cause the Sun Spots, and thus impact weather on Earth:

In the time before the current period of faith-based science, much good work was done on the role of the Sun in controlling climate. One of the best monographs from that time of innocence is Hoyt and Schatten’s The Role of the Sun in Climate Change, published by Oxford University Press in 1997. That book starts with this paragraph:

About 400 years before the birth of Christ, near Mt. Lyscabettus in ancient Greece, the pale orb of the sun rose through the mists. According to habit, Meton recorded the sun’s location on the horizon. In this era when much remained to be discovered, Meton hoped to find predictable changes in the locations of sunrise and moonrise. Although rainy weather had limited his recent observations, this foggy morning he discerned specks on the face of the sun, the culmination of many such blemishes in recent years. On a hunch, Meton began examining his more than 20 years of solar records. These seemed to confirm his belief: when the sun has spots, the weather tends to be wetter and rainier.

So the idea that sunspots and the solar cycle control climate is at least 2,400 years old. In the modern era, the appreciation of sunspots started again in 1610 with telescopic observations by Galileo, Thomas Harriot and others. The solar cycle was discovered by Samual Schwabe in 1843 after 17 years of observations, though William Herschel’s correlation of sunspots and the wheat price in England dates from 1801. A 2003 paper by Pustilnik and Din entitled Influence of Solar Activity on State of Wheat Market in Medieval England confirmed Herschel’s observation. ...

The red "Full Model" includes the the effects of Uranus and Neptune:


They claim that the relative sun spot activities found in the Northern and Southern solar hemisphere's also match the collective contemporaneous inclinations of the planet's orbits.

The OT famously records the 7 years of plenty and the 7 years of famine prophesied by Joseph, which does not appear, on first glance to correlate to the graph or the 11 year cycle. But perhaps one might allow that the 7 year periods are only those respective periods significantly over and below the thresholds to qualify as feast or famine ... and in the case of the Joseph narrative are consecutive peaks?
Is that a good thing or a bad thing?
