Abstract: 

Recent observations of downward solar radiation fluxes at Earth's surface have shown a recovery from the previous decline known as global "dimming" with the "brightening" beginning around 1990. The increasing amount of sunlight at the surface profoundly affects climate and may represent diminished effects of certain counter-balances of the greenhouse warming, thereby making it more evident during the past decade.
