We used a new series, highly reliable and representing the mean surface temperature of Central Europe for the period 1760-1998, to study Sun-Climate relationships. The results indicate that the influence of solar activity is evident only on a long time scale, in particular for the period 1860-present. On a short time scale it is not directly evident. From the spectral analysis we deduced that the strength of solar signal in the temperature series has an intermittent behaviour. We proposed a mechanism of resonance between the two non-linear systems, the Sun and Earth climate, to explain our results.
