This paper discusses possible mechanisms for the influence of solar and geomagnetic activity on the biosphere and the weather, taking into account variations of the microwave radiation of the ionosphere, excited into Rydberg states. These energy estimates of the flux intensity of microwave radiation of the ionosphere from Rydberg states are used to prove for the first time that the values of this flux agree with the experimental data. A method is proposed for distinguishing the contributions of microwave radiation and magnetic perturbation in the geobiocorrelations, taking into account the effect that the magnetic-field variations are not in phase with the flux of corpuscles from the radiation belts in the ionosphere during the period of a geomagnetic storm.
