I'm not forgetting about the solar aspect, I just don't it's going to have much of an impact on global temps. The next solar minimum will be a small, short term blip down in a climate that has been, and will continue to steadily warm over the long term.
And globally, the mid 80s weren't cold at all compared to what we saw pre-1980.
Steadily warming, eh? Well, let's look at some DO^18 isotope ratios, to gauge the significance of the modern warming (ice core proxies for hemispheric temperatures based on the differential weight ratios, just FYI).
Here's the instrumental record spliced into the proxy data. Looks like temperatures today are the warmest in ~1000 years, which isn't very noteworthy:
Zooming out a bit, note how insignificant even the most prolific Holocene temperature variations are compared to those within the ice age:
Zooming out a bit farther, note the cyclical nature of the ice age cycles, that arise via differences in orbital eccentricity, as well as obliquity and precession:
Now, for perspective, zooming even father out, looking at the transition into the Pleistocene:
Humans are just ignorant crybabies sometimes. There's nothing unusual of unprecedented about today's climate.
