I'm hoping some meteorologists or climate experts will explain this part of the press release:
"These observations imply that the upper atmosphere has cooled substantially since then. The research team expects the atmosphere to heat up again as solar activity starts to pick up in the next year.
"While this warming has no implications for climate change in the troposphere...."

If it's either warming or cooling way up there, why would the change have no "implications" for temperatures nearer the surface? Does the atmosphere have the ability to maintain equilibrium despite the current great cooling at high altitudes and subsequent great warming when the Sun becomes more active?
