The authors of a newly published paper on the role of the sun’s variability on global temperatures overstate their case that there has been no impact of solar variations on the earth’s temperature history during the past several decades. Antithetically, changes to the sun are generally known to influence the earth’s climate on all time scales, from eons to hours. However, the difficulty comes in trying to fully measure the magnitude of the sun’s variability and then to understand how such changes result in changes to the earth’s climate.
