Anomalies in isotope decay rates have been observed throughout the 1900's, but have been under investigated, under reported, and suffered from neglect. Late 1950's in the development of ceramic nuclear fuel manufacturing, an anomaly of 35% loss in nuclear fuel content was observed and was written off as a processing loss of the nuclear fuel.
Infinite Energy magazine, Issue 53, 2004, in the article by Gary Christopher Vezzoli entitled “Gravitational Data During the Syzygy of May 18, 2001 and Related Studies” presented data for changes in the earth gravity field. Amazingly, another section in the article presented data measuring the change of decay rate for Po210 corresponding to a lunar variation. Pu239 decay variations were presented for daily monthly, and yearly time frames. Decay rate variations were observed for the period of September 7-11, 2002, when Jupiter eclipsed a deep space quasar. Not only local earth environment affects decay rate of radioactive isotopes, now data is presented showing cosmic influences on the decay rate on earth from the sun, the moon, planets, and one quasar.
Lord Rutherford reported on April 28, 1932 at a meeting of the Royal Society, that J. D. Cockcroft and E T. S. Watson in the Cavendish Laboratory had successfully demonstrated the accelerated release of radioactive energy from lithium elements and other light elements.
Segre and Wiegart established decay rate mutability in 1949. They showed that decay rate was dependent on the chemical environment for Be7, which decays by electron capture. This was extended to the physical environment by investigators for other isotopes, which can decay either by electron capture or isomeric transitions.

maybe, however you jump to a dangerous assumption there that this is not a new phenomona going on.
I mean, it may be repeated throughout time over and over again, but from what I understand, there is no evidence of that as of yet...we don't even understand what the evidence is to begin with...much less jumping down to it being repeated
so, ya...this could be the very first time ever this is happening, in which case, the earth is pretty exact to our understandings...however, it seems plausable its not and this phenomona has happened before
Still, what are we shaving off here is the next question...a few million years? a couple billion? etc.
I really should read the article, but its too late, so tomorrow...
Interestingly, researchers at Purdue first noticed something awry when they were using radioactive samples for random number generation. Each decay event occurs randomly (hence the white noise you'd hear from a Geiger counter), so radioactive samples provide a non-biased random number generator. However, when they compared their measurements with other scientists' work, the values of the published decay rates were not the same. In fact, after further research they found that not only were they not constant, but they'd vary with the seasons.Decay rates would slightly decrease during the summer and increase during the winter.
Sure enough, the researchers noticed the decay rates vary repeatedly every 33 days -- a period of time that matches the rotational period of the core of the sun. The solar core is the source of solar neutrinos.
