(Landscheidt, 1981-2001) document the importance of the Sun's eruptional activity for climate.
There is cogent evidence that the Sun's eruptional activity, too, has a strong effect in the tropics.
During periods of high eruptional activity, the cosmic ray flux into the atmosphere is reduced so that the production rate of radionuclides such as
This argument, however, does not take into account that the Sun's eruptional activity (energetic flares, coronal mass ejections, eruptive prominences), heavily affecting the solar wind, as well as softer solar wind contributions by coronal holes have a much stronger effect than total irradiance.
As explained in the text, the IPCC's hypothesis of man-made global warming is not in the way of this forecast exclusively based on the sun's eruptional activity.
