1. What is the most recent and/or most compelling evidence of the impact of solar variability on climate, particularly in the lower atmosphere, over decadal timescales?

2. What can we learn of the variability of solar irradiance using paleoclimate records?

3. What can we learn of climate responses to solar variability using paleoclimate records?

4. Are there any significant climate impacts of solar variability on regional scales?

5. What are the research directions, additional observations, and/or model improvements necessary to improve understanding and forecast ability regarding solar variability and climate, particularly over the solar cycle timescale?
