Reports that researchers in Denmark have found evidence that variations in the Sun on a timescale of decades affect the Earth's temperature. Records of the solar cycle; Significance of the cycles on suggestions that the solar influence on the climate may be reduced in the coming decades; Details of the research conducted by Knud Lasses and Eigel Friis-Christiansen of the Danish Meteorological Institute in Copenhagen.
