it's vs that's

We say in English: "there is something else I don't care for, and that's the sun." or else : "…care for: the sun."
How does one explain why we don't can't say (assuming I am right) "and it's the sun" ?

Thanks for your help

    I don't quite see why you're posting this in the French/English forum but I can tell you what I was taught in France anyway:

    "that" put more emphasis on the subject than "it"
    also, that refers to something that was already mentioned (here it's the case: "something else I don't care for" is mentioned)
