It is a LIE that the Sun's activity had stopped in the 1950s, or the 1980s...

NASA Study Finds Increasing Solar Trend That Can Change Climate
Since the late 1970s, the amount of solar radiation the sun emits, during times of quiet sunspot activity, has increased by nearly .05 percent per
decade, according to a NASA funded study.
"This trend is important because, if sustained over many decades, it could cause significant climate change," said Richard Willson, a researcher
affiliated with NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies and Columbia University's Earth Institute, New York. He is the lead author of the study
recently published in Geophysical Research Letters.
"Historical records of solar activity indicate that solar radiation has been increasing since the late 19th century. If a trend, comparable to the one
found in this study, persisted throughout the 20th century, it would have provided a significant component of the global warming the Intergovernmental
Panel on Climate Change reports to have occurred over the past 100 years," he said.
NASA's Earth Science Enterprise funded this research as part of its mission to understand and protect our home planet by studying the primary causes
of climate variability, including trends in solar radiation that may be a factor in global climate change.
In this study, Willson, who is also Principal Investigator of NASA's ACRIM experiments, compiled a TSI record of over 24 years
by carefully piecing together the overlapping records. In order to construct a long-term dataset, he needed to bridge a two-year gap (1989 to
1991) between ACRIM1 and ACRIM2. Both the Nimbus7/ERB and ERBS measurements overlapped the ACRIM 'gap.' Using Nimbus7/ERB results produced a 0.05
percent per decade upward trend between solar minima, while ERBS results produced no trend. Until this study, the cause of this difference,
and hence the validity of the TSI trend, was uncertain. Willson has identified specific errors in the ERBS data responsible for the difference. The
accurate long-term dataset, therefore, shows a significant positive trend (.05 percent per decade) in TSI between the solar minima of solar cycles 21
to 23 (1978 to present). This major finding may help climatologists to distinguish between solar and man-made influences on climate.
That study only covered 24 years, from 1978 until 2002, and in it Wilson found an increase in solar irradiance.
That study is not the only one that exists, other studies have concluded that the Sun has/had been more active in the last 80-100 years, if not more,
than at any time in the last 1,000-1,500 years...
Sunspots reaching 1,000-year high

But the most striking feature, he says, is that looking at the past 1,150 years the Sun has never been as active as it has been during the
past 60 years.
Over the past few hundred years, there has been a steady increase in the numbers of sunspots, a trend that has accelerated in the past
century, just at the time when the Earth has been getting warmer.
Over the past 20 years, however, the number of sunspots has remained roughly constant, yet the average temperature of the Earth has continued to
The above excerpt claims that the past 20 years the "number of sunspots has remained constant", but Wilson's research found that the total irradiance
of the Sun had continued to increase during that time until the end of the research in 2002.
I have also posted other evidence in the past which shows the activity of the Sun has/had been increasing, and we know this for example because the
strength of magnetic storms in the Sun has/had also been increasing even well after 2002 and at least until the end of 2005 to the beginning of 2006,
at which time the Sun's activity slowed down to a crawl, and lo and behold the Earth's temperature dropped.
