Study: finds a solar amplification mechanism by which solar activity & cosmic rays control climate

Watts Up With That?

The HockeySchtick writes: A paper published today in the Journal of Atmospheric and Solar-Terrestrial Physics finds another potential solar amplification mechanism mediated by galactic cosmic rays [GCRs] (and distinct from Svensmark’s cosmic ray theory of climate). The author demonstrates:

  • Solar modulation of GCR [Galactic Cosmic Rays] is translated down to the Earth climate.
  • The mediator of solar influence are energetic particles.
  • GCR impacts the O3 [ozone] budget in the lower stratosphere.
  • O3 influences the temperature and humidity near tropopause, and greenhouse effect.
  • Effectiveness of this mechanism depends on geomagnetic field intensity.

“In this paper we show that bi-decadal variability of solar magnetic field, modulating the intensity of galactic cosmic ray (GCR) at the outer boundary of heliosphere, could be easily tracked down to the Earth’s surface. The mediator of this influence is the lower stratospheric ozone, while the mechanism of signal translation consists of: (i) GCR impact on the lower stratospheric…

Watch “Atmospheric Compression Snow and Rain Events Happening Across the Planet (492)” on YouTube

Some interesting events going on as we had deeper into northern hemispheric winter.

Humor “What is it with british people and snow ?”

Although Piers brilliantly forecast the snow going further south giving a lovely surprise, even the 12 inches of show in the Breacons and the near 7 inches in High Wycombe are nothing. Most of North America, Europe and Asia would see this as a light shower 😁. However, in defense of Blighty especially most of … Continue reading Humor “What is it with british people and snow ?”

Britain starts dismantling wind farms after successful Lake District campaign

Finally!! Let’s hope this is the beginning of the end for the prayer wheel monstrosities blighting our lands and pockets.

Let’s hope other scenic but corrupted areas take up the baton to get more of these ridiculous industrial eyesores removed from our natural environment.

A dozen 140ft wind turbines on the edge of the Lake District are due to be dismantled next summer after a decision which could result in many more being removed to restore views, reports the GWPF (from The Times).

The wind farm on Kirkby Moor on the Furness peninsula in Cumbria would be the first large one to be taken down since they began appearing around Britain in 1991.

South Lakeland district council refused an application by the wind farm operator to keep the turbines operating for another ten years until 2027.

Snow Across Deep South Early December: Liberals Think It Is Too Hot

What an amusing weather map!  The western half of the continent is warmer than normal and the deep south is in the freezer!  Mexico is very much colder than usual.  It is sort of ‘warm’ here in that it is slightly above freezing upstate New York but we will be in the deep freeze starting tomorrow going to zero F by next Wednesday.  California is still burning up.

Retraction request to Bioscience: FOIA emails document another harsh criticism of Amstrup’s 2007 polar bear model

Good to see Dr Crockford fighting back against the merchants of smear including renowned motor mouth Mann who is such an expert with hurricanes he gets even the fundamentals wrong. Riiiiiiight…


Today I sent a letter to the editors of the journal Bioscience requesting retraction of the shoddy and malicious paper by Harvey et al. (Internet blogs, polar bears, and climate-change denial by proxy) published online last week.

The letter reveals information about the workings of the polar bear expert inner circle not known before now, so grab your popcorn.

Harvey et al. 2018 in press climate denial by proxy using polar bears_Title

I have copied the letter below, which contains emails obtained via FOIA requests to the US Geological Survey and the US Fish and Wildlife Service by the Energy and Environment Legal Institute, E&E Legal, and the Free Market Environmental Law Clinic (USFWS request; USGS request) and sent to me by lawyer Chris Horner in 2014, unsolicited. I reveal some of them now, with his permission (most of the emails are boring, involving mostly technical topics not relevant to anything, as might be expected).

The emails in…
