question

What modulates our Sun? The majority of science work on the principle that the Sun is self modulating and each solar cycle is a product of a random number generator. There are others that suspect the Sun is modulated by the planets with a special emphasis on Uranus & Neptune. Thanks to Carl Smith who has recently left us we have new knowledge that significantly adds to Jose, Landscheidt & Charvàtovà's work.

Arctic air to surge into the Great Lakes region

Thu, 11/09/2017 - 17:05

Hazardous weather outlook – Well below normal temperatures.

______________

The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook for northern Lower Michigan…eastern Upper Michigan…and adjacent nearshore waters of Lake Michigan…Lake Huron and Lake Superior.

 

“Arctic air will surge into the Great Lakes region Thursday through Friday, leading to well below normal temperatures. Lake enhanced snow, heavy at times, will occur Thursday and Thursday night, with several inches of snow expected downwind of the Great Lakes. Gusty winds will lead to lowered visibilities due to blowing and drifting snow.”

“Gale force wind gusts are expected across much of the northern Great Lakes Thursday and Thursday evening.

“Another period of accumulating snow is possible later Saturday into Saturday night.”

Minus 40 degrees in Oymyakon

Thu, 11/09/2017 - 16:38

For those who don’t know how to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit, minus 40C is exactly the same as minus 40F. I don’t care what day of the year it is, that is cold.

Almost everywhere in the Russia, temperatures are running above the norm.

However, in Oymyakon , the temperature last night dropped to -42.4°C.

This is apparently NOT a record. According to Wikipedia, Oymyakon is a rural locality in Oymyakonsky District of the Sakha Republic, Russia, and is one of the coldest permanently inhabited locales on Earth.

Greenland glacier emitting mysterious plumes of steam

Thu, 11/09/2017 - 15:54

During a flight from Keflavik to Portland on July 11, 2017, pilot Ágúst Arnbjörnsson snapped a photo of plumes of steam rising from the Greenland ice sheet.

The photo, taken  from a height of approximately 34,000 feet, shows what appear to be three plumes of steam rising from cracks in the glacier. The plumes were located about 75 km from Kulusuk in Greenland.

I’m guessing that those plumes of steam are not being generated by global warming. You see, just six days earlier on July 5th,  Greenland recorded the coldest temperature ever in the northern hemisphere for July.

Record cold in Winnipeg

Thu, 11/09/2017 - 13:12

Far, far below normal. “These are temperatures we normally see in January,” says meteorologist. 

According to Environment Canada meteorologist Natalie Hasell, the overnight low in Winnipeg on Wednesday night was –23.7 C (-10.7F). The old record, set in 1966, was –20.6 C.

Brandon dropped to –25 C overnight, matching the 1966 record for that city.

“These are temperatures we normally see in January,” Hasell said.

The mercury plunged to -21C (-5.8F) this morning in Winnipeg. Combined with the wind chill, it felt more like –31 (-23.8F).

Normal temperatures for this time of year in Winnipeg are a daytime high of 0 C (32F) and an overnight low of –8 C (17.6C).

Washington ski area could open on Friday

Wed, 11/08/2017 - 13:19

With more snow in the forecast, Crystal Mountain could open on Friday, November 10. That’s just two days from now.

“We’re currently looking at 10-20″ of snow across the mountain,” says the Crystal Mountain website. “We just need another 6-12″ to start spinning lifts.”

“We’re expecting more snow Wednesday night and Thursday so if Mother Nature delivers we plan to open Friday. “

If Crystal Mountain ski resort should open this Friday, it would be two weeks earlier than last year’s Nov. 25 opening day, says The Seattle Times.

Crystal Mountain is about 80 miles southeast of Seattle.

Unseasonal snow and giant hail for New South Wales

Tue, 11/07/2017 - 19:48

‘Massive’ damage in some parts of northern NSW. (New South Wales is a state in southeastern Australia.)

Hail the size of golf balls fell at Narrabri, and 10cm of snow was recorded at Perisher.

Stephen Butcher, from Tregeagle, near Lismore, said the damage from Sunday night’s storm was “massive”.

“I fear for some of my stock, I have thousands of dollars worth of yearlings, two-year-old thoroughbreds in the paddocks,” he said.

“I could hear the roof tiles breaking with the force of the wind and the size of the hail. I’ve never seen anything like it.”  “I’ve got massive fig trees that are just shredded.”

said it was the most severe hailstorm he had seen in 30 years of growing berries in the area.

“It was very very scary, said Otto Saeck, owner of Blueberry Fields at Brooklet near Byron Bay. “We were sitting in the middle of the house hoping the windows wouldn’t break.”

“It was like a tornado. We’ve lost most of the summer crop. We’ve got to spend hundreds of thousands in repair work.

NASA Has More Evidence Volcanic Activity Is Heating Up Antarctica’s Ice Sheet

Tue, 11/07/2017 - 15:39

Underground streams of heated rock may be melting the ice.

NASA Has More Evidence Volcanic Activity Is Heating Up Antarctica’s Ice Sheet

By Michael Bastasch

Ancient underground streams of heated rock, called a mantle plume, might be an explanation for the instability of Antarctica’s western ice sheet, according to a new NASA study.

Scientists have been debating whether or not mantle plume heat contributes to western Antarctica’s instability. Some recent studies provided evidence this might be the case, but even this study’s authors were skeptical.

“I thought it was crazy,” Hélène Seroussi, the study’s co-author and scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, said in a release.

“I didn’t see how we could have that amount of heat and still have ice on top of it,” Seroussi said in a statement.

NASA says Seroussi’s study provides more evidence of geothermal activity underneath a portion of the world’s largest ice sheet.

Scientists tend to worry more about future global warming’s effect on Antarctic ice sheet. NASA glaciologist Eric Rignot said western ice sheet collapse is “unstoppable” and could dramatically raise sea levels.

However, Antarctica has gone through periods of instability in the past. Seroussi’s study provides important context for the western ice sheet’s instability, and how mantle plumes may play a role.

Seroussi and co-author Erik Ivins used enhanced numerical modeling to see if a mantle plume could really be creating rivers of melted water under Marie Byrd Land in western Antarctica. They compared their model to real-world observations of changes in the ice sheet.

Scientists think mantle plumes are thin streams of heated rock that makes its way upward, melting ice and creating rivers and lakes of meltwater under Antarctica’s western ice sheet. Mantle plumes could have contributed to ice sheet instability about 11,000 years ago.

Seroussi’s study showed a mantle plume pushes 150 milliwatts per square meter of heat up towards the ice sheet. That’s about two to three times the heat flux of regions of the world without volcanic activity.

A 2014 University of Texas study found western Antarctica was a literal hotbed for geothermal heat. Researchers concluded that “large areas at the base of Thwaites Glacier are actively melting in response to geothermal flux consistent with rift-associated magma migration and volcanism.”

The following year, another team of U.S. scientists found there’s a huge amount of geothermal heat under western antarctica. “The high geothermal heat flux may help to explain why ice streams and subglacial lakes are so abundant and dynamic in this region,” the study found.

Earlier this year, Scottish researchers found 91 previously unidentified volcanoes under the Antarctic ice sheet, including one that’s some 13,000 feet tall.

If one of these volcanoes were to erupt it could further destabilise west Antarctica’s ice sheets,” Robert Bingham,a study co-author, told The Guardian. “Anything that causes the melting of ice – which an eruption certainly would – is likely to speed up the flow of ice into the sea.

“The big question is: how active are these volcanoes? That is something we need to determine as quickly as possible,” Bingham said.

Burgundy wine growers on verge of bankruptcy

Mon, 11/06/2017 - 20:44

That’s what three years of frost can do.

______________________________

“Just how bad is France’s wine shortage going to get?” asks French website.

Wine production in 2017 is “historically low” in France as a direct result of “extreme weather,” the article explains. (Do I detect an unwillingness to blame it on cold weather?)

According to the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV), volumes are down by a steep 19 percent on 2016’s production levels.

This comes after a disastrous 2016. when volume dropped to a 30-year low.

According to experts, this decline is the direct result of “extreme weather” in the three largest wine producing countries in the world.

Italy and Spain have seen volume drop by 23 percent and 15 percent respectively.

Vineyards have been hit by spring frosts in several areas, particularly Bordeaux and Jura, while hail was the culprit in Beaujolais.

On top of that, south eastern Vallée du Rhône has seen severe drought while southern parts of Provence and Languedoc have seen zero rain.

“Locally, there is already a lot of anxiety,” said Georges Haushalter, president of the Economic Commission of the Interprofessional Bordeaux Wine Council. “In Burgundy, for example, where they have had three difficult years because of frost, I have been told that wine growers in Pommard are on the brink of bankruptcy.”

Vineyards could lose out on about a billion euros this year, says Haushalter.

Party Time for Climateers

7 November 2017

The climate warriors are holding yet another Global Warming Jamboree in Bonn. We can expect an orchestrated flood of frightening forecasts to support their alarmist agenda.

Naturally they will not use carbon energy to get there.

Cartoon posted by permission of Steve Hunter


For 23 years they have maintained these shindigs with no effect on the climate but causing great harm to many ordinary people – soaring costs for unreliable subsidised green electricity, loss of manufacturing and mining jobs, and increased food costs caused by high power prices and using food for ethanol/biodiesel.

Climate alarm is just a cover story. The glittering goal they seek is world government directed by unelected officials and funded by a global carbon tax.

What has kept these unproductive conferences alive for so long?

Massive Snow Accumulation Records in U.S & Canada – Video

Sun, 11/05/2017 - 17:41

All-time ice gain in Greenland, record ice growth in the Arctic, cold fronts romping through Mississippi a month early. “And yet they’re still talking about CO2?”

“IPCC is dead in the water…. Bye, bye IPCC, your time is done. Your lies are over. It’s time for us to deal with the truth. The Grand Solar Minimum is here. We’re going to need to think about how we’re going to mitigate this with our crops that are going to be lost.”

Eruption could be brewing at Iceland’s biggest volcano – Video

Sun, 11/05/2017 - 14:31

Last week, Bardarbunga volcano was shaken by four of the largest earthquakes since its last eruption in 2014.

Geophysicist Páll Einarsson, a volcanology expert at the University of Iceland, says the tremors indicate that pressure in the volcano’s magma chamber is increasing.

Einarsson warned that Bardarbunga, which is hidden under the ice cap of the Vatnajökull glacier, is “clearly preparing for its next eruption” within the next few years.

Such an eruption could create an ash cloud that could bring travel chaos similar to that caused by the 2010 eruption of Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull volcano, which threw thousands of tons of ash into the sky and stranded more than 10 million air passengers.

That eruption, the strongest of its kind in Europe in more than 240 years, cost the European economy an estimated £4 billion ($4.9 billion).

Experts envision a similar scenario if Bardarbunga, one of the most active of Iceland’s 130 volcanoes, were to erupt.

However, this does not mean the 6,591-foot-tall volcano is going to erupt tomorrow.

According to the Catalogue of Icelandic Volcanoes, although Bardarbunga’s activity level is high, the warning code remains green – meaning the volcano is in a normal, non-eruptive state
