Global Climate Status Report

Just the facts, folks.

This is an El Nino year, with an augmented ocean warmth to boot. Tremendous snowpacks almost everywhere, flooding events/hazards/prospects distributed widely across the country.

Here is a presentation of the jet stream.... it's been on the south side for a few weeks now, and has been at times quite prolific in terms of moisture content.

https://www.wunderground.com/maps/wind/jet-stream

Notice the "polar vortex" centered on the Hudson Bay. Studies of past ice ages have consistently centered the most dramatic ice build-ups here.... not in Russia or Siberia or Northern Europe quite so much. I think this pattern is characteristic of ice ages.

Yes, one the ice is established, the oceans begin to cool as well.... but the moisture source for the snow and ice buildup is lower latitude.....

And here's a feature article from the same site, from yesterday:

https://www.wunderground.com/cat6/Weirdly-Quiet-Sun-May-Get-Even-Quieter-and-BTW-Earth-Still-Warming

Before this site was "bought out" for a fair price by folks committed to the global warming political crusade, you could get reasoned discussions about the topic here. But no more.

Here, Bob Henson has to go out of his way to deny the correlation between solar cycles and earth climate....


There are no studies on solar cycles and earth climate in the long run, on the geologic time scale of ice age events... because all the evidence we have access to is buried in our muck and rock and ice. We don't even have studies which look for solar wind remnants in earth sediments or rock..... some isotope studies could theoretically link solar wind particles to the relative abundance of certain isotopes which could result. Beryllium, for example, is thought to be formed in our upper atmosphere from charged particles found in the "solar wind". But has anyone ever gotten a grant on a proposal to study sediments across geologic time to determine the relative abundance of Beryllium for the purpose of understanding solar flare history across geologic time?

I don't think so. but I'll be looking it up....

My point.... two items here presented.... in favor of my hypothesis of an ice age advent.... happening now.

And more.... this is actually a wholly different topic.... but very important climate cycles:

"Using a coupled lithium-carbon model, we show that initiation of the glaciation was likely caused by declining CO2 degassing, which triggered abrupt global cooling, and much lower weathering rates. This lower CO2 drawdown during the glaciation allowed climatic recovery and deglaciation. Combined, the data and model provide support from the geological record for the operation of the weathering thermostat."

https://www.geochemicalperspectivesletters.org/article1726

This says, in babe terminology, that carbonic acid in rain can dissolve common rocks..... a process that decreases atmospheric CO2 and even oceanic CO2 content. The low CO2 starts the ice ages..... and cools everything off.... and then CO2 levels spring back and things start to warm up.

The system as a whole stabilizes and/or regulates climate like a "thermostat" of global proportions.

ah ha.

How many "Global Thermostat Deniers" do we have to send to re-education camps?

and yah yah. Trump doesn't care that much, so you're all safe.

And anyway.... I was looking for a way to objectively measure long-cycle, geologic time-scale cycles, of our sun's solar wind by evidence left here on earth.

basic hypothesis…. The sun is important, maybe most important, in earth climate changes....

more to come.

Hence the reason he said almost everywhere.

So, there are snow packs in India? Vietnam? The Congo?

There are snow packs in the northern temperate region as warming in the arctic has pushed cold air south. That's a consequence of global warming, nor evidence against it (nor for it).

There is this small range of mountains that runs through India. Maybe you're heard of it? The Himalayas. I believe there may be some snow pack there.

Here is a pic of the Rwrenzoi Mountains on the Congo side.

That might be some snow pack that I see.

And a bit less dramatic, it does snow in Vietnam, notably Sa Pa, Vietnam albeit only during a short window and it does melt off quickly. It is a huge tourist attraction.

Do you seriously believe this **** that you say, or are you just a troll?
