Uncertainties in the multi-decadal variability of the total solar irradiance (TSI) still persist because of the difficulty measuring the luminosity variation of the quiet solar regions. The ACRIM-PMOD TSI controversy needs to be resolved to determine the magnitude of TSI as a driver of climate change. ACRIM uses published TSI satellite measurements that show TSI increasing from 1980 to 2000 (when the Earth’s climate warmed), followed by a decrease from 2000 to date. PMOD uses model-altered satellite measurements and derives a TSI decrease from 1980 to the present. Our new study evaluates TSI proxy models that appear to confirm PMOD. Yet, the observed discrepancies between their predictions and the available high-quality TSI satellite data suggest that they are missing a slow multidecadal TSI variation that confirms the ACRIM TSI record.
