Peer reviewed science papers cited:

“These estimates both have much lower upper bounds than those from a predecessor study using AR5 data ending in 2011.” (https://journals.ametsoc.org/doi/10.1175/JCLI-D-17-0667.1)

“solar variability has been the dominant influence on Northern Hemisphere temperature trends since at least 1881.” (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0012825215300349)

“If the climate continues its cooling and the sun behaves in a manner not witnessed since 1800, we can be sure that climate changes are dominated by the sun and that atmospheric CO2 has a very small role in climate changes. If the same climatic patterns, cyclic warming and cooling, that occurred over the past 500 years continue, we can expect several decades of moderate to severe global cooling.” (http://scienceandpublicpolicy.org/images/stories/papers/reprint/multidecadal_tendencies.pdf)

“the ice winter severity index in the Baltic Sea is modulated by solar activity and solar motion in several frequency bands during the last 500 years.” (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1364682612002167)

“These quantities were analyzed in two GCMs and compensating errors in the SW and LW clear-sky, cross-atmosphere radiative flux divergence were found to conspire to produce somewhat reasonable predictions of the net clear-sky divergence. Both GCMs underestimated the surface LW and SW CRF and predicted near-zero SW CRE when the measured values were substantially larger (~70 W m−2 maximum).” (http://journals.ametsoc.org/doi/abs/10.1175/JCLI-D-11-00072.1?af=R)

“These findings, together with the missing orbital signature in published dendrochronological records, suggest that large-scale near-surface air-temperature reconstructions relying on tree-ring data may underestimate pre-instrumental temperatures including warmth during Medieval and Roman times.” (http://www.nature.com/nclimate/journal/v2/n12/full/nclimate1589.html)

“(…) resulting in the conclusion that the early MCA was warmer than the late 20th century by ~ 1 °C.” (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0031018212003926)

“the global temperature increase during the last century is between 0.4°C and 0.7°C, where these two values are the estimates derived from raw and adjusted data, respectively.” (http://www.itia.ntua.gr/en/docinfo/1212/)

“Highest pre-industrial summer temperatures of the 12th century were 0.3 °C warmer than the 20th century.” (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0277379112001680)

“the periods in which solar activity agents affecting the Earth are predominantly related to solar toroidal or poloidal fields are the periods in which the North Atlantic Oscillation is negatively or positively correlated with solar activity, respectively.” (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1364682612001393)

“25–56% of the temperature increase the last 150 years may be attributed to the Sun. For 3 North Atlantic stations we get 63–72% solar contribution.” (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1364682612000417)
