In recent months, there have been dozens of papers published in the scientific literature ascribing variations in temperature and precipitation (climate) to corresponding variations in solar forcing.
Another new paper, Zhang et al., 2017, has just been published online. The nine scientists contributing to the research place special emphasis on the relationship between solar activity and climate for the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau region of Central Asia for the last 10,000-12,000 years.
The authors link high and low solar activity to correspondingly high and low temperatures and precipitation. Undulating millennial- and centennial-scale temperatures are found to vary by about 2.5°C throughout the Holocene. No mention is made of carbon dioxide as an influential factor affecting climate change.
Although the instrumental record for the region documents an abrupt warming in recent decades (which aligns with the Modern Grand Maximum), the proxy evidence from subfossil chironomids used to reconstruct temperature does not show a significant or unusual regional warming trend during the last century.
