Influence of solar activity on the Earth’s climate limited

Newsitem | 08-11-2006

Conclusions arising from new research on the influence of solar radiation on climate point to the unlikelihood of being able to unambiguously explain how the temperature variations in the past centuries came about. However, the influence of variation in solar activity on climate in the long-term (since 1700) seems to be smaller than previously estimated.
