If you actually read the study and the conclusions that I posted, the scientists are not saying anything about the sun. The study talks about how temperature and humidity affect the East Asian Summer Monsoon (EASM) by either increasing and decreasing its intensity and the interaction between the EASM and the ocean
The study also concludes that warming and cooling is a cyclical phenomenon that has happened before and will happen again. It notes that the northern treeline is already starting to retreat. This is a pretty good clue that the global weather is cooling.
“Driving forces include the sun, the atmosphere, and its interaction with the ocean,”

Sometimes you need to look the the Chinese and Russians for the truth of things. It is no wonder the overlords in the U.S. Deep State don’t like them.

She doesn't seem to be talking about global cooling. She seems to be talking about internal variability affecting the area around Moon lake.
As a result of the research findings, Wu said she was now more worried about cooling than warming.
“A sharp drop of temperature will benefit nobody. The biggest problem is, we know it will come, but we don’t know exactly when.”

According to Wu, the variation in solar activity alone was usually not strong enough to induce the rapid changes in vegetation the research team recorded in the sediment cores of Moon Lake. Instead, the scientists found the warming impact was amplified by a massive, random interaction between surface seawater and the atmosphere in the Pacific Ocean known as the El Nino-Southern Oscillation.
Weird. The terms "500 year cycle" and "random interaction" don't seem to go together very well.
I don't suppose you've found a link to the actual paper? The South China Post seems to be confused.
The paper says nothing about cooling. And the other statements about the study don't give me a lot of confidence in the article's interpretations of what she may or may not have said.
Yes she does talk about being more worried about cooling.
Actually there is much which is confusing about it.This for example:
There is nothing confusing in the article.
The study found that winds from Arctic Siberia have been growing weaker, the conifer tree line has been retreating north, and there has been a steady rise in biodiversity in a general warming trend that continues today.
A new study has found winters in northern China have been warming since 4,000BC
On the centennial to millennial time scale, the results of wavelet analysis and band‐pass filtering show that the occurrence and development of El Niño have also promoted a weaker EAWM after ~6.0 ka cal. BP, which is inversely correlated with the variation of the ca. 500‐year cycle originated from changes in solar output.
This 500-year cyclic climate change occurred in EA during the mid-late Holocene and even the last 150 years dominated by anthropogenic forcing. It was almost in phase with a ,500-year periodic change in solar activity and Greenland temperature change, suggesting that ,500-year small variations in solar output played a prominent ole in the mid-late Holocene climate dynamics in EA, linked to high latitude climate system. Its last warm phase might terminate in the next several decades to enter another,250-year cool phase, and thus this future centennial cyclic temperature minimum could partially slow down man-made global warming.

Wether we are contributing to climate change or not, it doesn’t alter the fact we are polluting the crap out the earth, poisoning the oceans and effectively making the planet a harder place to live on for future generations.
Greed is the problem.
