Ah, this would be the paper that claims decay rates undergo fluctuations in accordance with solar neutrino flux. The trouble being of course that again, any such fluctuations are extremely small. The neutrino flux required to make a significant change, even if this hypothesis is valid, would equivalent to the simultaneous output of several billion simultaneously detonating supernovae all concentrated on our small planet, and somehow, I think that isn't going to happen.
