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.

Think yourselves lucky,  America

You too could have had a Green-Socialist paradise like Australia.

Think yourselves lucky,  America

By tomOmason

Maybe Americans should look at how their country could have looked by contrasting how the US is now, to how currently Australia is doing.

“…the death of Australian manufacturing. Invest downunder! Get high taxes, high labor costs, expensive unreliable energy, and a tiny market. We’ve got lots of land and resources, but a Titanium Shield of Red Tape, no free speech, barely any real media, and government funded anti-business activists. ”

Yes, Australia, like America, is a vast country full of riches, resources, and an educated population. However successive Socialist and Green governments have borrowed, taxed, and spent increasing amounts of this generation’s, and the next generation’s, wealth. They started by massively expanding the government, ensuring it could interfere in the smallest aspect of every citizen’s life, and every company’s basic operation.

They did this while massively funding ‘green’ schemes in electricity generation and anti-coal actions (blowing-up upgradeable coal generating plants), paying huge subsidies to government favored cronies for providing intermittent electricity via unreliable ‘renewables’ at the same cost or more, often at elevated costs over reliable, fossil fueled, electricity generation.

They’ve also imposed harsh and needless green laws and ‘sustainability’ restrictions on most industries, and atop all that is the never-ending rounds of socialist schemes in taxing companies and wealthy individuals to the maximum.

All this done while state run TV and radio relentlessly churn out the government ‘good news’, and climate/industry/environmental ‘bad’ news.

This has ensured that ordinary Australian don’t just feel the decline in living standards, they know that it is real but feel powerless to prevent it.

Think yourselves lucky,  America. With the Democrats, you too could have had a Green-Socialist paradise like Australia.

Trump approval rating jumps to 49 per cent

Fri, 02/02/2018 - 13:15

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows President Trump making substantial gains after Tuesday’s State of the Union speech. This is Trump’s highest voter approval rating since March 7, 2017, and I think it is well-deserved.

BBC – Paris Climate Agreement Is A Con – Video

Thu, 02/01/2018 - 12:40

“Let’s be clear. Climate change energy charges on your electricity bill are actually a poll tax on the poor,which even causes people to die in winter when they cannot foot the bill.” – Astrophysicist Piers Corbyn

“The alarmism plastering the media is fraudulent,” says Corbyn. “There is no such thing as man-made climate change.”

“U.N. models have failed, and failed, and failed again.”

“The world now is cooling, and our own scientific examination of solar activity shows it will cool even more rapidly in the next 20 years.”

CBS admits that 75% of viewers approved of State of the Union speech

Wed, 01/31/2018 - 14:56

“Three in four Americans who tuned in to President Trump’s State of the Union address tonight approved of the speech he gave,” CBS admits.

And a full 80% of viewers felt “the president was trying to unite the country, rather than divide it.”

It must have pained CBS to say that.

Summer Blizzard in Tasmania

Wed, 01/31/2018 - 11:58

31 Jan 2018  – The Great Lake Hotel in Miena in central Tasmania filmed this incredible footage of summertime snow falling on Tasmania’s higher peaks earlier this morning. 

Kaylee Hattinger, the owner of the Central Highlands pub, said at 5.45am she saw the first flutters of snow.

“By 6.15am we were in the middle of a blizzard it was amazing,” she told Tom Elliott.

“The last time we had a significant snowfall that was out the season it was the 3 December and we probably had eight inches.

“It’s still only January!”

The Bureau of Meteorology reported snow above 900m. The snow hit just two days after the state sweltered through blistering heat.

First snow in 50 years paralyzes southern Morocco – Video

Tue, 01/30/2018 - 19:41

Follows unprecedented road conditions across Morocco on January 20, 2018, when 3,100 miles (5,000 km) of roads were closed due to ‘exceptional’ snowfall.

29 Jan 2018 – Now, just 9 days after that exceptional snowfall, the first snow in 50 years to hit southern Morocco has again blocked roads, making travel “absolutely impossible.”

From 6 am Jan 28 to 6 am Jan 29, Amzri received 22 to 30 cm (almost one foot!) of snow and Imdrasse received 10 to 20 cm (3.93 – 7.87 inches).

The snowfall is currently affecting Ouarzazate (gateway to the Sahara Desert), Taroudant and even Zagora, which hasn’t experienced snowfall since 1968.

Ouarzazate’s city center recorded between 1 and 5 cm (0.39 – 1.96 inches) of snow.

Minimum temperatures in this region are expected between -4 and 1 °C (24.8 – 33.8 °F) and maximum between 5 and 9 °C (41 – 48.2 °F).

France – Worst rains in 50 years a reminder of Little Ice Age floods

Mon, 01/29/2018 - 21:34

Reminds me of the Little Ice Age floods that wiped out the bridge in Avignon.

____________________

Floodwaters along the rain-engorged Seine River are threatening towns downstream from Paris, said an article today from the AP.

The national weather service said that “January has seen nearly double normal rainfall nationwide, and that the rains in the past two months are the highest measured for the period in 50 years.

The article then went on to warn (of course) that France’s heaviest rains in 50 years have “raised concerns about climate change.”

Those floods raise my concerns, too. But not because of so-called “climate change.” Instead, they remind me of the Little Ice Age floods that wiped out the bridge in Avignon.

I visited the Pont d’Avignon a couple of years ago. Also known as the Pont Saint-Bénézet, the Pont d’Avignon is a famous medieval bridge in the town of Avignon, in southern France.

The bridge, built between 1177 and 1185, spanned the Rhône River between Avignon and Villeneuve-lès-Avignon. It boasted an original length of some 900 meters (980 yards) (More than half-a-mile.)

Unfortunately, Little-Ice-Age floods destroyed it.

Here’s a photo of an artist’s rendering of the Pont d’Avignon that I took while visiting the bridge.

According to a placard at the bridge, “In the 15th century, climate change occurred. (Yep, the placard actually used those words, ‘climate change.’)

“Europe entered the little ice age,” the words on the placard continued, “which significantly changed the hydrological conditions of the Rhône catchment area…”

Then, beginning in the early 1600s the arches were “regularly swept away” by  flooding.

Finally a catastrophic flood in 1669 swept away much of the structure, says Wikipedia. Only four of the initial 22 arches remain, and the bridge has not been used after the 17th century.

Photo of drawbridge, taken from the bridge.  All that remains of the bridge.

The AP may wring its hands over man-made “climate change,” but with the lowest sunspot count in more than a hundred years, I’m much more worried about what Mother Nature may have in store for us.

Instead, this raises my concerns that we could be headed into another little ice age.

Top 10 Climate Change Lies Exposed – Video

Mon, 01/29/2018 - 05:01

Look at how many warming periods – far warmer than today – that we’ve had in the past 10,000 years.

Civilizations flourished during those warming periods, and collapsed when they ended.

Should we blame humans for all those other warming periods?

Cold winters testing limits of US energy grid

Mon, 01/29/2018 - 04:10

“The arctic air that has frozen the northeastern U.S. over the first weeks of 2018 has prompted New Englanders to crank up the heat and New England’s utility companies to scramble for fuel,”

writes Jordan McGillis.

“This season’s above-average heating and electricity demand has tested grid reliability,” McGillis writes, “(but) ISO New England’s analysis reveals that in winters to come fuel insecurity will plague the region.”

Here are a few excerpts from the article:

Insecurity despite abundance

Though the resources are close at hand, a combination of laws and regulations has made New England dependent upon natural gas, yet unable to access all that it needs.

Pipeline paucity

On Jan. 23, ISO New England CEO Gordon van Welie testified before the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee that, “when it gets cold the region does not have sufficient gas infrastructure to meet demand for both home heating and power generation.” …”New England (has) the most expensive spot natural gas prices in the world — including this January.

At the barricade preventing the transport of gas from the abundant reservoirs of Pennsylvania and West Virginia to New England is the state government of New York….  New York politicians have put the brakes on pipeline projects through their permitting power, blocking the Constitution and Northern Access pipelines outright.

The hostility to pipelines is so pervasive in the northeast that ISO New England takes that bleak view that “no new incremental gas infrastructure will be built to serve power generation.”

The Jones Act 

With state governments blocking new pipeline construction to bring in affordable shale gas, New England buys liquefied natural gas (LNG) transported by sea….

But domestic shipping of LNG is made impossible by the obtuse Merchant Marine Act of 1920 — commonly called the Jones Act. The Jones Act mandates that only American-built, -owned, -crewed and -flagged vessels can participate in maritime shipping between domestic ports.

The Congressional Research Service has found that the Jones Act results in American vessels operating at twice the cost of comparable foreign ships.

The cold truth

“….despite unprecedented domestic energy production, New Englanders will soon find themselves out in the cold.

Jordan McGillis is a policy analyst at the Institute for Energy Research, a nonprofit focused on free-market energy and environmental research and policy.

Mt Baker – More snow in 8 days than Idaho and Colorado get in entire winter

Sun, 01/28/2018 - 18:14

11½ feet (3.5 meters) of snow in 8 days – Third missing snowboarder in 3 months

________________

“Just read an article about a third missing snowboarder in 3 months in the Mt. Baker ski resort in Washington State,” says reader. “They said they have received more snow in the last 8 days than Idaho and Colorado get in a whole year.”

“We have been in a rare and significant storm cycle for the last eight days,” said Gwyn Howat, operations manager at the Mount Baker Ski Area.

“We have received as much snow in the last eight days here in the Pacific Northwest as Idaho and Colorado get in an entire winter.”

According to Mount Baker Ski Area’s snow report, in that time the mountain has received more than 3.5 metres of snow.

Howat said while conditions are too treacherous for the active physical search for the missing snowboarder to continue, search teams are using technology to keep looking.

A night drone with thermal imaging has already been deployed, but results were unsuccessful.

Washington ski area closed – Too much snow

Sun, 01/28/2018 - 17:51

More than 9 feet of snow — 112 inches — was measured at 8 a.m. Saturday at the Ridge snow stake, according to the Peninsula News. More snow is in the forecast.

“Sorry, road closed today so we will be closed.” said a Tweet from the Hurricane Ridge ski area yesterday (Jan 27).

Today’s Tweet said, “Due to the Hurricane Ridge road closure we will again be closed today…. Sorry.”

The road was also closed on Friday as park crews worked to clear it and the Ridge parking lot — where high winds had sculpted snow into 14-foot-high drifts.

 

I don’t know how many hours it took for this 9 feet of snow to accumulate, but the Friday update on their Facebook page said: “Careful what you wish for is the moral or this update. 5 feet of new snow and 50 mph winds completely buried the ski area.”

The record amount of snow at the Ridge was 62 feet in the winter of 1998-99, according to Olympic National Park.

Paris – Third-wettest winter since 1900

Sun, 01/28/2018 - 15:32

Paris braces for floods as River Seine surges to 13ft higher than normal, and still rising. 

The floods have already caused damage in 240 towns.

In Paris itself the deluge has forced about 1,500 people from their homes and closed the lower level of the Louvre. The Musee d’Orsay and Orangerie galleries are also at risk.

The River Seine is expected to peak at 13.1ft this evening or on Monday

Around 1,000 people have been evacuated from their homes in the greater Paris region, according to police, while around 1,500 homes lost electricity.

The December-January period is now the third wettest on record since data collection began in 1900, according to France’s meteorological service.

Massive snow dump in Iran

Sun, 01/28/2018 - 13:21
Traffic at a standstill – More than 2½ feet (80 cm) of snow in some areas

28 Jan 2018 – A major snow storm battered much of Iran Saturday night, closing airports, bringing traffic to a standstill and shutting schools across the country.

The snowstorm affected two-thirds of the population in more than 20 provinces, Press TV reported. The north of country was hit hardest, with some areas receiving 31 inches (80 cm) of snow.

Thousands of cars got stuck and were unable to move on Tehran-Karaj highway, western Tehran, on Saturday night. One of the passengers told the Tehran Times that he had reached his home in Karaj after going through 12 hours of standstill traffic. “Many cars have run out of gas,” he regretted.

The extent of the blizzard has yet to emerge, with many towns and villages likely to have been cut off from the outside world.

China rushes to replenish gas supplies ahead of icy blast

Fri, 01/26/2018 - 15:26

22 Jan 2018 – China is pulling in ships from all over the world to avoid a natural gas supply squeeze ahead of yet another “cold snap.”

With temperatures in Beijing set to drop as low as -15C (5F) this week, heating demand will soar and authorities want to avoid a repeat of December’s chaos, which saw serious supply shortages.

To ensure supplies, some 60 ships carrying more than 4 million tons of LNG are on their way to China. This is the third highest total behind December’s 5.1 million and November’s 4.36 million tons, according to shipping data in Thomson Reuters Eikon.

The shipments are coming from unusual origins: Equatorial Guinea and Angola, Peru, Trinidad, Tobago, and several from the United States.

Domestic producers are also churning out more gas.

South Korea – Cold wave spikes power demand to unprecedented level

Fri, 01/26/2018 - 15:07

Public concerns growing over a possible power outage.

__________________

26 Jan 2018 – Bitter cold triggered an unexpected electricity hike across South Korea, putting the country’s power supply at risk.

On Thursday, the Korea Power Exchange (KPX) ordered its client companies to reduce electricity consumption after national power consumption rose to 86 million kilowatts, abnormally high compared to previous winters.

It marked the fourth electricity reduction order by the KPX this year, which issued five such orders last year.

The weather agency issued a cold weather alert as temperatures dropped to minus 17C in the capital on Thursday.

Follows an all-time high on Wednesday

Electricity demand hit an even greater high on Wednesday – an all-time high – with 86.2 million kilowatts and the reserve rate at 14.2 percent.

Seoul’s temperature was forecast to fall to minus 15C on Friday.

“It is most likely the KPX could issue another order Friday,” a KPX official said.

25 Jan 2018 – The sea is frozen off Gangjin, about 410 km south of Seoul. Photo provided by the Gangjin county office.
