If something happened to knock a planet out of the solar system completely I could see how it might... but I think the atmospheres are pretty self-contained.
Jupiter has had far worse storms & changes & none of them has affected earth.
source source 2 we are in the Solar Cycle 24 so I will not rule that out either. The main idea is that if we are to look around at the little tidbits of information we do come across from time to time.. somethings are too much of a coincidence to be taken as such and I do agree with some that we need to understand or re-understand the Science of space and probably try to modify earth science in the process..at least we are getting there as a race.
"These results are striking in that they point to a scientifically feasible series of events that link the 11-year solar cycle with ENSO, the tropical Pacific phenomenon that so strongly influences climate variability around the world," says Jay Fein, program director in NSF's Division of Atmospheric Sciences. "The next step is to confirm or dispute these intriguing model results with observational data analyses and targeted new observations."
