The Hockey Schtick:

A paper published today in Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecologyfinds climate change in the NE Pacific over the past ~5000 years has been strongly related to solar activity. The paper also finds yet another solar amplification mechanism by which the Sun controls climate, stating, “High solar activity … may have been manifested as a prolonged westward shift and/or weakening of the Aleutian Low in the mid-late Holocene, which would have diverted fewer North Pacific storms and resulted in the relatively dry conditions reconstructed for the [NE Pacific].” The Aleutian Low is one of the main centers of action of the atmospheric circulation of the Northern Hemisphere. The IPCC claims tiny variations in solar activity cannot affect climate, but this paper and hundreds of others demonstrate solar activity has greatly amplified effects upon climate via ocean oscillations, stratospheric ozone, sunshine hours/clouds, and atmospheric oscillations such as the Madden-Julian oscillation, Quasi-biennial oscillation, and Aleutian Low.
