POTENT CORONAL HOLE FACES EARTH

From SpaceWeather:

A canyon-shaped hole in the sun’s atmosphere is facing Earth, and it is spewing a stream of fast-moving solar wind toward our planet.  NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory photographed the giant fissure on March 25th:

 A gaseous stream flowing from this coronal hole is expected to reach our planet on during the late hours of March 27th and could spark moderately-strong G2-class geomagnetic storms around the poles on March 28th or 29th. 

We’ve seen this coronal hole before.  In early March, it lashed Earth’s magnetic field with a fast-moving stream that sparked several consecutive days of intense auroras around the poles. The coronal hole is potent because it is spewing solar wind threaded with “negative polarity” magnetic fields. Such fields do a good job connecting to Earth’s magnetosphere and energizing geomagnetic storms.

Piers Corbyn criticizes Prof Stephen Hawking for backing #ClimateHoax 

Piers Corbyn comment on Prof Stephen Hawking reported interview ITV Morning show 20 March with PiersMorgan – for consideration by Prof Hawking and his team.

“Prof Hawking spoke alarmist delusional nonsense on so-called (ManMade) Climate Change and as a leading world scientist failed in his duty to support evidence-based scientific principles. Science shows CO2 levels are an EFFECT NOT A CAUSE of natural changes in climate. This is spelt out in the pdf:

 “The FACT is there is no real-world evidence that CO2 levels drive temperatures but a million years of data shows the connection is the other way, namely that world sea temperatures control CO2 levels which ARE OBSERVED TO FOLLOW sea temperatures by some hundreds of years. The reason is basic Physics. The oceans which hold about 50x the CO2 of the atmosphere can hold a bit more when colder and less when warmer (just like warming a fizzy drink causes CO2 to come off). So (under Henry’s Law of gas-liquid solvent equilibrium) CO2 is driven from the sea to the air as temperatures rise – a process which happens with a delay of some hundreds of years due to slow ocean circulation. The rise in CO2 levels now are probably a delayed effect of the Medieval warm period

“The idea that CO2 is in any way driving temperatures in recent decades is also shown to be absurd by the fact that the natural cycles of temperature eg 22yrs60yrs are NOT present in CO2 which is supposedly, under the CO2 warmist theory, driving temperature changes. CO2 levels are just slowly rising without the fluctuations observed in temperature.

“It is also a FACT that the various extreme weather events in recent years are not evidence of causation by rising CO2 which is happening at the same time but actually evidence AGAINST the CO2 theory. The extremes, including temporary Arctic ice reductions at times are caused by the wild Jet stream (and associated ocean current circulations). These wild North-South variations in the Jet Stream are the opposite of the general poleward shifted Jet Stream of a generally warmed world predicted by the CO2 theory. In fact these wild JetStream patterns were predicted under my WeatherAction solar-activity – solar-wind ideas in 2008 and totally nothing to do with CO2.

“Prof Hawking and your team, please consider these points and if you have actual evidence that CO2 levels are a cause of climate changes rather than an effect then let me and the world know. If you cannot do that then cease being used by the globalization lobby to promote a delusional theory which is a key ideological pillar of de-industrialization of USA and Europe – and instead stand up for science.”

“On other points you made you must know it to be untrue that you would be unwelcome in the USA because you have criticisms of President Trump. Millions enter the USA who have different views to him. 

“It was also unhelpful of you, as a Labour voter, to sound critical of my brother when despite his forcing the govt to do many u-turns the Tory press denounce him every day beccause they fear the good he will bring to the UK as Prime Minister”.

“As a matter of common interest you and I had the same Physics teacher in different schools. Kieth Reynolds a superbly inspirational dedicated teacher first taught you then moved to my school, Adams’ Grammar school, Newport Shropshire where I learned a huge amount from him.”

Italians Feeling Cursed with Snow & Earthquakes

Update: 

Sadly the earthquake set off an avalanche.

BBC

Update Ends

If you follow Suspicious0bservers you may have heard of Earth Spots which posits a link between storms and earthquakes, which may have some merit:

When I saw news today of another earthquake in Central Italy this morning, I recalled yesterday’s news of pummelling snowfall also in Central Italy (see image at top of page).

It’s a truly horrible situation and no wonder the Mayor feels somewhat cursedYahoo

Piers Corbyn – After Arctic blast expect more surprises for rest of winter

The latest from Piers is below. I’d you want his full thoughts, you can subscribe here. (Note Britain & Ireland FEB 45d is now loaded.)

“After that arctic snow blast for Britain +Ireland expect more surprises for rest of winter” says Piers Corbyn

“Despite fearsome cold in most of Europe this winter (eg the coldest Orthodox Xmas (7 Jan) in Moscow for 120 years and terrible snow in centre, east and SE parts 4-9 Jan) Britain & Ireland had so far missed out on much snow /Arctic blasts until around Jan 12th. Although this was an earlier ice-snow hit (in detail) than we expected for Brit+Ire, it and what is coming was/is in line with our WeatherAction European developments forecast types this month and as one subsciber commented on our WeatherBlog our BI+Eu forecast maps and the Observed maps have been and are  “incredibly similar”:-

Been going through the model runs and then a Piers forecast and then the dates….time and again. And currently synoptically from Piers’ map and now….incredibly similar. Furthermore, what we have had was a pep up surprise and there is a lot more fun and games to come and wild jetstream behaviour to come. I was thinking Piers timing was wrong….no I have misread the situation as what is happening now is the synoptic situation has slipped into what Piers has forecast after the interesting pep up. If u haven’t got the forecast… get it and you will see. Lot’s of winter to come.

“It it also gratifying to see the deluded believers in the #FakeScience of ‘GlobalWarming’ have to come to terms with the fact their personal local square mile of the globe cannot anymore be ‘evidence’ of the ‘end of snow’ (since the last time it snowed there).  The #FakeScience and #FakeNews of so-called man-made #ClimateChange will terminate this year.

“The NOT important storm surge of 13/14th apart from a small event in East Yorkshire was not really a surprise to WeatherAction. 

Authorities must indeed be ready and the Full Moon was indeed a factor and we must congratulate the Met Office and the environment agency / local authorities on short-term detailed forecasting and organisation. Nevertheless the extra pep needed for it appears ALL these really extreme events – ie a WeatherAction R4 /R5 period – was NOT present; so no over-topping in the warned parts of the East coast.

“WARNING! IN THE COMING TWO DECADES it is however important to note the #WildJetStream (= #MiniIceAge in cold parts) conditions that bring these strong (potentially extreme) North winds and storm surges will be more prevelant.
