Unexpected Teleconnections

Another ‘unexpected’ discovery by NASA – more here

For example, says Cora Randall, AIM science team member and Chair of the Dept. of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at the University of Colorado, “we have found that the winter air temperature in Indianapolis, Indiana, is well correlated with the frequency of noctilucent clouds over Antarctica.”

Noctilucent clouds, or “NLCs,” are Earth’s highest clouds. They form at the edge of space 83 km above our planet’s polar regions in a layer of the atmosphere called the mesosphere. Seeded by “meteor smoke,” NLCs are made of tiny ice crystals that glow electric blue when sunlight lances through their cloud-tops.

Where is the Missing Heat? It escapes from the earth as cyclones.

Further data on this apparently vexing problem climate science has.

From the Engineering toolbox we have the following specific heats of ice, water and water vapour.

Notice that water has double the heat capacity of both ice and water-vapour.

Why ?

Gerald H. Pollack explains why in his recent book “The Fourth State of Water”.

Approximately half the radiant energy goes to where ?????

Screen Shot 2014 04 10 at 4 26 08 pm

Climate science assumes that all the incident radiative energy on water gets transferred to heat.

It doesn’t, only half of it does.

And they wonder where the missing heat is?

Cyclones, hurricanes and typhoons all start in warm oceans, and represent a loss of energy to the system. so where might the energy come from?

Because these weather phenomena are also rotational systems, the most plausible explanation seems to be electric charge loss via Birkeland currents which impart rotational motion.

An up to date summary of climate change theory

This is really interesting and that’s all I am going to comment on at present.

Update: Ben’s concluding point was on the scientific process – where journals drive scientists to publish papers to generate journal sales, and where MIT software engineers write a program that scours the internet for data etc that seem inter-related, and then having the code produce a scientific paper – gibberish – and then have those papers published in the ‘peer reviewed’ journals.

Hannes Alfven pointed it out last century, paraphrasing him, that we have too many scientists, most of whom are academically mediocre, and who subsequently publish gibberish.

A significant improvement in the mainstream understanding of weather – the existing paradigm is wrong.

Willis Eschenbach at WUWT has written an excellent summary of his latest research post:

The volcanoes pose a huge problem for the commonly held view that the changes in global average temperature are a linear function of the changes in forcing. The climate models are nothing but a mechanistic implementation of that circumscribed and simplistic hypothesis.

Now, we know for a fact that the solar forcing after Pinatubo underwent a large and fairly lengthy drop … but we don’t find either the amount or the pattern of cooling predicted by the models. Heck, not only that, but the predominate pattern after Pinatubo was warming, not cooling … once again, the only tenable conclusions are:

1) Whatever the volcanoes might be doing, they’re not doing what the model says or what conventional climate theory predicts, and

2) Whatever the volcanoes might be doing, they are not doing enough of it to even rise above the noise.

To me, this is simply more evidence that the underlying climate paradigm, the idea that changes in temperatures are a linear function of changes in forcing, is simply not correct. If it were correct, the eruptions would show it … but they simply don’t.

That’s why I describe myself as a climate heretic rather than a skeptic—I think that the most fundamental paradigm of how the climate works is wrong. The temperature changes are NOT a linear function of forcing changes as conventional climate theory holds.(My bolding)

Exactly – the current climate theory is wrong – it’s not based on thermal uplift and atmosphere chemistry (the CO2 effect) and solar radiation. Earth weather is driven by space weather that is modulated by the sun’s electromagnetic behaviour, of which sunlight is but a small visual effect much like the speedometer of an automobile. The real weather engine, like the automobile’s engine under its bonnet, is hidden from sight – and is the electrical connection as indicated by earlier posts.

What Defines A Scientist ?

WUWT has posted an interesting topic on what defines a scientist, in response to an article published by USA Today

According to USA Today on April 3rd and repeated on April 4th:

“Keith Baugues is not a scientist, but that didn’t stop him on a recent wintry day from expressing skepticism about global warming — something that is broadly accepted in the scientific community.”

“Baugues studied engineering at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute and has spent six years at the Department of Environmental Management and nine years with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.” USA Today

A scientist is some who uses the scientific method in which a theory is proposed, an hypothesis put forward to test the theory, and a binary result expected, false or positive. Exploration geologists are probably the most experienced practitioners of the scientific method since their whole professional life involves the continual process of coming up with a theory, the mineral deposit is so and so, at a depth of etc, and the hypothesis to test the theory is then the drill-hole which either yields a yes or no result. After you have drilled a few thousand drill holes testing various theories, you tend to become somewhat proficient in the scientific method, apart from understanding what it means. Good exploration geologists are few and far between, I should add.

But most people who are employed as scientists are not – they are more accurately described as technicians or engineers, highly skilled people who can put into practice scientifically verified theories. These people are not doing science, but are implementing technology that is the spinoff from science. Meteorologists, for example, are not scientists, but highly skilled experts who can apply specific scientific theories in describing the weather. Forecasting or predicting weather isn’t applying the scientific method, for example. Pattern drilling an ore-body to estimate metal reserves isn’t doing science. Designing automobiles or airplanes isn’t science. You should get the idea.

The problem these days is that the political activists have invaded the halls of science, mainly as the result of the world’s governments hiding the unemployed as students in the universities, and this egalitarianism has had some unfortunate consequences, including an explosion of technicians masquerading as scientists, in the belief that by wearing a white or grey lab coat and doing ‘science’, makes one a scientist and hence credentialed to speak authoritatively on some or other issue of the day.

This leads to the USA Today comment that ‘Keith Baugues is not a scientist’ ad hominem and in the rest of the post on WUWT you can read the rest, including the idea of “consensus science” which means that it isn’t science, of course.

What has actually happened is that science has become politicised, hardly surprising given the golden rule, and that the lunatics have gained control of the asylum. And there’s nothing we can do about it.

We are living during interesting times.

Evidence of Space Weather Induced Natural Disasters

Dr. Kongpop U-Yen has published a simplified explanation of his presentation at the recent Electric Universe Conference in Albuquerque.

Update: In case the penny has not dropped, weather on earth is dominated by the electrical forces at the earth’s surface and has nothing to do with the amount of CO2 in the earth’s atmosphere. As the UN IPCC has recently admitted, its reports are explicitly politically framed at the request of the member governments, and implicitly that the ‘science’ is cherry picked to support the political goals. This is quite interesting because this view means that the IPCC has basically absolved itself from any responsibility for producing specious scientific reports. This admission has basically removed all the wind from the sceptical camp’s sails.

Update 2: Some points made in the presentation -

1. Space weather drives earth weather
2. Solar flares or eruptions cause changes in wind velocity on earth, i.e. a solar flare will increase wind velocity. (Comment: This is because winds are not caused by thermal uplift, but from continual electric charge equilibration as electric charges surges pass through the earth-system. Low pressure areas are where protons leave the earth’s surface to the ionosphere and where the electrons enter the earth-system. The protons arrive at the poles and via a complex route leave the earth via the low pressure cells. High pressure cells don’t seem to be driven by anything, and so have to be interpreted as zones of essentially neutral charge).
3. Earthquakes seem to correlate with ionosphere compression (gets closer to earth) and causes may be in space or internally to the earth itself.
4. Earthquakes seem to be initiated by solar flares, sunspots and CME’s.
5. Hurricane/cyclone wind velocities are increased with appearances of CME’s – again these are simply electric charge surges along the sun-earth-solar system electrical circuit. (I am ignoring the presence of mercury and venus for the moment).
5. Water spouts can be modelled using the Thomson model, and are akin to the laboratory water bridge experiment, where the rotational motion is caused by the effect of Birkeland currents in the presence of a magnetic field. As long as the geomagnetic field has a vertical component, rotational atmospheric effects can occur and include hurricanes, cyclones, typhoons, water spouts etc.

The overriding conclusion from these facts is that weather has nothing to do with the chemical composition of the earth’s atmosphere, but with the passing of electrical charge, both positive and negative, through the earth-system. The primary motive force for wind generation are the protons which have the mass to affect adjacent neutral matter.

Plate Tectonics RIP

From the latest New Concepts In Global Tectonics Journal Vol.2 No 1, editorial.

Plate tectonics in disarray

Many of our readers may have noticed that in the last few years there has been a major reduction in the number of plate tectonic papers in mainstream journals. The Editor was also alerted to this fact by one of our editorial members. There are many more signs everywhere showing the disarray of the plate tectonic camp. These days the television news in Japan and certain other countries often fails to mention plate subduction as the cause of a big earthquake in the Pacific trench. The public attitude towards plate tectonics has changed notably since the March 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake.

An article reflecting the decline of plate tectonics appeared recently in Japan. It was written by a researcher at the Institute of International Policy Studies, a popular web-based business medium, JBpress (http://jbpress.ismedia.jp/articles/-/40113). While introducing a new earthquake model developed by Fumio Tsunoda, one of our NCGT members, he strongly criticizes the plate tectonic model for its inability to explain the cause of catastrophic earthquakes:

…Geologists have a different approach from seismologists. Model-driven seismologists try to fit geological data into their models, often disregarding geological data that do not fit. There is no clearly defined force that can move plates. Despite many attempts using computer calculations, it has become clear that the friction caused by mantle convection is not powerful enough to move plates. Dr. Tsunoda, on the basis of a vast amount of volcanic, earthquake and geological data, has clarified the northing of seismo-volcanic energy at a regular speed along the Izu-Ogasawara ridge. He predicts a shallow, strong quake south of Tokyo around 2020, exactly around the time when the Tokyo Olympics is scheduled. …We should not take plate tectonics as a truth without critical tests, but we have to search and accept pragmatically any theories that help understand the earthquake generation mechanism and their prediction.

This is an opinion openly expressed by a non-seismologist who is close to the Japanese government; it should be taken as representing the majority of the general public. The Japanese people are particularly concerned about future strong earthquakes that may exacerbate the situation at the already critically-damaged nuclear power plants in Fukushima due to the March 2011 M9.0 earthquake and the ensuing tsunami. As printed on pages 113- 118 of this issue, a team from the Explorer’s Wheel and International Earthquake and Volcano Prediction Center (IEVPC) proposes a comprehensive earthquake prediction program to help mitigate further catastrophes with a non-plate-tectonic, multidisciplinary approach.

In addition, our new concept of flowing energy in relation to earthquakes has been applied to many of the recent strong earthquakes. The latest example is seen on pages 61-65 of this issue, one of the most successful predictions by IEVPC: the M8.0 and 6.7 offshore northern Chile earthquakes. The energy flow concept best explains these quakes without invoking plate subduction.

Today it is an unspoken axiom among geologists who engage in hydrocarbon exploration that oceanic basins are underlain by continental rocks. Oil industries have quietly accepted the continental nature of oceanic crust. This is the strong, underlying driving force of current, very active deep-sea hydrocarbon exploration. Thanks to that, we don’t hear any more about ‘peak oil’ in the mass media. NCGT’s concerted effort to document the vast amount of hard evidence for ancient continental rocks in the world oceans, supported by other geological data, has borne fruit and will contribute to the prosperity of the human race.

Not all of our discoveries, however, are applied for the cause of peace and prosperity. Because of the mineral deposit potential of ocean basins, territorial conflicts have been triggered on ocean islands in many parts of the world, including those in the South China Sea and the Sea of Japan (West Sea of Korea), between China and Japan, and Korea and Japan, respectively.

The above facts and developments prove that we have already won the battle. Plate tectonics proponents and supporters are having to admit that the theory that they believed was the supreme truth and which has dominated the global geological scene for almost half a century is groundless and untenable. This marks a revolution in geological thinking. The NCGT group should be proud of being a major player in this historic development.

So if plate tectonics has now failed, thus implying coal and petroleum deposits are not buried accumulations of the biosphere, then we must accept the alternative Russian-Ukrainian theory of abiotic oil, that petroleum deposits are mantle derived from the H-C system. This also means that petroleum and coal are not fossil fuels, since the physical mechanism to explain their occurrence no longer exists.

So how to explain the topographic depressions that form the world’s oceans?

Perhaps the Australian Aboriginal people could supply a clue, for their ancestors believe that the rainbow serpent, best understood as a planetary scaled electric discharge phenomenon between the earth and some external body, whether a meteor, planet, comet or electric plasma, formed the earth’s topography. This suggests that the world’s sedimentary deposits may be for the most part derived from electro-machining of the earth’s surface from planetary scaled electric discharges, and that the earth’s present-day river systems may have originally been excavated by subsurface electrical discharges, not un-similar to the Lichtenberg structures produced by lightning. Of course subsequent erosion by rainwater has produced the familiar river and delta deposits we observe today but importantly, the original excavation was not water-borne, but electrically machined at some previous catastrophic event in the past, and perhaps more recent than any of us suspect if my ideas about the cause of the LIA are even half correct.

It does seem we are living in an electric universe, after all.
