Mike Lockwood at the University of Reading, UK, may already have identified one response - the unusually frigid European winter of 2009/10. He has studied records covering data stretching back to 1650, and found that severe European winters are much more likely during periods of low solar activity (New Scientist, 17 April, p 6).

The California-Mexico border continued to rattled by what the U.S. Geological Survey called an "elevated level" of earthquake activity as hundreds of aftershocks to Monday's 5.7 temblor were recorded.
The USGS also said the 5.7 quake "probably occurred on a northwest striking fault that follows the trend of the Elsinore fault in this region. The Elsinore fault is more than 110 miles long, and extends into the Orange County and Los Angeles area as the Whittier fault."
Experts have said the 7.2 temblor has caused thousands of aftershocks, increasing overall seismic activity in the Southern California-Baja California region.
There were dozens of aftershocks overnight, but fewer were greater than 3.0 magnitude when compared to Tuesday or Wednesday.
On Thursday morning, a 4.1-magnitude quake on the border was reported; it probably was an aftershock of the April quake.
