The paper appears to corroborate the Svensmark cosmic ray theory of climate, which predicts increased cloud formation associated with decreased solar activity.

New paper finds significant increase in mid-latitude clouds, corroborates Svensmark theory of climate
A paper published today in the Journal of Geophysical Research Atmospheres finds a significant increase in mid-latitude clouds over the past 10 years. According to the authors, " Increases in cloud frequency appear to be driven by corresponding temperature decreases over the same time period. During this time, solar activity decreased from an active to a quiet period, which might have been partially responsible for the temperature decrease over this time period."
