Tom is collecting titles of scientific papers you would really rather not see. Only one entry so far, but I have to agree that 'Unusual activity of the Sun during recent decades compared to the previous 11,000 years' is indeed a title I really would rather not have seen.

Go Meta! Go Geneva!

Indeed - well done Geneva et al. Also, Go Niall :-)
Interesting overview ... so I can only comment on that abstract - this solar variability has been a consistent argument throughout the climate change research, and the impact of its forcing shouldn't be underestimated, surely. Nevertheless, we are left with what we can do about it, and that takes us back to greenhouse gases in the main.
Well done Geneva!
