One thing that is different in this election of 2012 versus the election of 2004 and 2008 – neither candidate has mentioned global warming
. Indeed, if one searches through archives, the main persons concerned or discussing global warming the most was the media and a certain group of scientists, to include “experts” at NASA
. Now, except for an infrequent report concerning the ice shelf melts, which occur regularly and have through recorded history, the doomsday scenario has disappeared off the radar.
Is it because the global warming danger has passed?
No, it is because weather changes and climate change has existed far back in the history of our planet, Earth – long before humans had “impact” upon this planet, and because scientists are focusing upon the sun’s solar storms
as the culprit.
So, the gist of the global warming theory, and theory was, all it ever was, nonsense and has disappeared from the media radar. The media never likes to admit it was either (a) duped, or (b) incorrect. Any places suffering (or enjoying) climate or weather changes can reliably expect it to be the natural process of Mother Nature.
A solar flare is a sudden brightening observed over the Sun‘s surface or the solar limb, which is interpreted as a large energy release of up to 6 × 1025 joules of energy (about a sixth of the total energy output of the Sun each second or 160,000,000,000 megatons of TNT equivalent, over 25,000 times more energy than released from the impact of Comet Shoemaker–Levy 9 with Jupiter). They are mainly followed by a colossal coronal mass ejection also known as a CME. The flare ejects clouds of electrons, ions, and atoms through the corona of the sun into space. These clouds typically reach Earth a day or two after the event. The term is also used to refer to similar phenomena in other stars, where the term stellar flare applies. Solar flares affect all layers of the solar atmosphere (photosphere, chromosphere, and corona), when the medium plasma is heated to tens of millions of kelvins and electrons, protons, and heavier ions are accelerated to near the speed of light. They produce radiation across the electromagnetic spectrum at all wavelengths, from radio waves to gamma rays, although most of the energy goes to frequencies outside the visual range and for this reason the majority of the flares are not visible to the naked eye and must be observed with special instruments. Flares occur in active regions around sunspots, where intense magnetic fields penetrate the photosphere to link the corona to the solar interior. Flares are powered by the sudden (timescales of minutes to tens of minutes) release of magnetic energy stored in the corona.

The sun, long regarded as mystical and included in mythological and folklore tales of human history, is actually a star as well, which the Wikipedia
description above refers to other stars in the visible portion of the universe we can see as something separate than our star we call the Sun
In the past ten years, there have been strong flares or bursts from the sun that has disrupted electronic communications and electrical sources. During that time, the United States government’s Energy Department has involved itself, with NASA and scientists to be prepared for massive bursts that are strong enough to get past the protective layer that surrounds our planet. Recent news
reveals that in the next couple of months we can expect a series of sun flares or storms greater than the one that occurred on October 22nd
, 2012. The flare erupted from sunspot AR 115998
, the category number designated by scientists whose job is to study the sun. It disrupted, temporarily, radio service.
A Space Weather
website entitled Solar Storms
has interesting data and has continuous updates on solar conditions. It also revealed that:
- $4 billion in satellite losses can be traced to space weather damage. (other damage would be from meteor showers and other small debris in space and mechanical failures of some type)
- The last major space storm caused an electrical blackout in Quebec.
- Solar flares have cost the airline industry millions of dollars.
- You may have already been affected by solar storms and do not know it. [more] (Referring to radiation and electromagnetic waves)
NOAA has a website entitled Space Weather Scales
(SWPC) that provides alerts concerning space weather.
During the hullaballoo over the so-called global warming, later changed to climate change, after their sky-is-falling “theories” were blown out of the water and investigation showed scientists either did not want to be proven incorrect, going full charge on a theory based on only one person’s evaluation and an incorrect computer model, and/or money was involved. For goodness sake, a Nobel Prize was given to Al “Pinocchio” Gore for his global warming enthusiasm and later it was found that he and wealthy investors, mostly from Europe were scheming to make money off “global warming” nonsense. Al Gore got a “C” for science in high school. He got an “A” for the reputation of being an exaggerator and a story teller.
After spending a lot of taxpayer funding, the United States government appears to be backing off the global warming nonsense. Common sense would have told them we could do nothing except prepare and adapt, as humans have been doing for centuries. It is exactly what the energy folks are doing. Maybe it is because more scientists, like Charles F. Keller
, who wrote in The Scientific World Journal
in 2003, A Review of the Current State-of-the-Controversy
– Global Warming: The Balance of Evidence and Its Policy Implications
The rise of greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide is not detrimental, as pointed out in a more recent article at Newsmax
(27 Mar 2012) by Martin Gould
and Wall Street Journal
World temperatures have remained virtually unchanged in the past 10 years despite predictions of global warming …
Weather plans in the first part of 2012 were much like the winter of 1942 when the United States experienced a warm winter, while Alaska and Asia received severe weather and bitterly cold that stalled the Nazi advance into Russia.
, Princeton physics professor, was quoted
CO2 is not a pollutant. Life on earth flourished for hundreds of millions of years at much higher CO2 levels than we see today. Increasing CO2 levels will be a net benefit because cultivated plants grow better and are more resistant to drought at higher CO2 levels, and because warming and other supposedly harmful effects of CO2 have been greatly exaggerated.
Anyone with mere grade school science knowledge knows that (carbon dioxide) CO2 is beneficial to plants, which in turn produce oxygen, which supports the animal life.
Happer ends his statement with:
What used to be science has turned into a cult.
And for some, a money-making enterprise. PT Barnum said: There’s a sucker born every moment.
Meanwhile, stupid people that operate our government are spending our tax dollars on nonsense.
Be aware of this fact: sometime many thousands of generations from now, if we do not kill ourselves off, the sun will begin to turn into a dark star, and Earth will no longer exist. Further, in time after that, the dark sun/star will create a blackhole
and nothing will exist in its proximity. By that time, the solar flares we are experiencing now is pale in comparison to what will happen as the dark star phase approaches. I hope that for humans on Earth, we would have spent more time in space exploration and developing colonies elsewhere before that time comes near. Maybe if we quit fighting each other, such sciences would be accelerated. In addition, if our space explorers and space pioneers come across indigenous, intelligent beings; I certainly hope they do not treat them as the European settlers and later the United States government did to Native Americans.
has an excellent news coverage video concerning solar flares and solar storms that includes a video.
website has a solar storm warning posted.
A geomagnetic storm caused by coronal mass ejection was reported
on September 9th
, 2012 that ended up to be six solar flares in a period of 24 hours.
One last thought … if global climate changes are occurring, which it seems to be a sporadic event, could it be caused by all of this solar activity, especially since weather in areas have been warmer than usual? Has anyone with all those degrees considered that instead of blaming it on humans? If we are going to commit global genocide, it will not be from global warming. It will be over something real estate, religion, or something other stupid reason.
|Golden Rule is Ageless
I am all for cleaning up our water (without clean, drinkable H2O humans would die off – killing each other for fresh water) – I am an avid angler and appreciate clean streams, rivers, lakes, and oceans. Problem is that most of the “tree hugging” crowd base their analysis and opinions on nonsensical theories and tampered scientific research. It defeats the purpose. I enjoy the outdoors – I’m a Sagittarian
. I appreciate nature and natural order. However, I detest events like what happened with the global warming nonsense. Science and invention has brought us wonderful things, improving technology. We need to use that technology wisely and respect what nature and/or the Creator
has provided. It also means that with that technology we do not lose the basis of success of any civilization, forget the Golden Rule
from the wisdom of the ages and one that spans the principles of many religions, and forsake our values that lead to a satisfying life.
