We are now entering into an era of low solar radiance.People call this new era -The Grand Solar
Minimum.These minimums occur every 300-400 years in earth's history, and can last 50 years or so.Longer ,colder winters are results of near complete fall off in sunspot activity.Galactic Cosmic Rays
increase as less solar activity presents a void to be filled.A decrease in total Solar Radiance of 3% seems little for this late date,however a decrease of 30% could help regrow Arctic Sea Ice.

Are there other factors like, I don't know, greenhouse gases, that could overwhelm this particular factor?

Hullo Neven,
There is a thread for the solar cycle.

Arctic Sea Ice : Forum » AGW in general » Science » Solar cycle

And guess what ......

Minimum.

Do people call it that?
I don't - it is not proven.
There has been a debate recently in this thread on that very subject.

Thanks, gerontocrat, I didn't properly check where this was posted. One solar thread should be more than enough.

Please, continue the conversation here.
