RICKIES rapid climate change events

[Does not go into the interplanetary solar wind induction and barycenter movements of the sun , effecting the mechanism of actions possible but lays bare the trends that will be found with the introspection of the electromagnetic, gravitational, and tidal forces among and between the solar system bodies as they interact to remain in the center of the heliopause, suspended on the furthest outlying closed loops of the solar wind magnetic fields, with a foam of turbulent small particles.]

Implications and Consequence of Flat Temperatures for 16 plus years and No Tropical Troposphere Hot Spot

The fact that there has been no planetary warming for 16 plus years and the fact that atmospheric temperatures have not increased at roughly 10 km above the surface, in the tropics as the CO2 warming theory predicts when CO2 increased, disproves the extreme AWG paradigm. A lack of warming can be explained away, in the short term, with heating hiding in the ocean or some unexplained mechanism that is cooling the planet. Hansen’s particulate reflection hypothesis fails to explain the lack of warming, as particulates do not move from hemisphere to hemisphere unlike atmospheric gases such as CO2 which equalize in about a year between hemispheres. The particulates are emitted in the Northern Hemisphere which is where the warming has occurred, particularly at high Northern Latitudes. The lack of warming has occurred in the tropics and in the Southern Hemisphere. (i.e. The lack of warming mechanism must explain the fact that observed warming has not been global.) There is no explanation for the fact that there is not observed warming of tropical troposphere (10 km) tropical troposphere hot spot. (The lack of a tropical troposphere hot spot is just ignored.)

Unequivocal planetary cooling, as opposed to a lack of warming is a game changer. The public will require, will demand a definite, logical, physical explanation for global cooling. There is now observation evidence of the start of a mechanism change which will lead to significant planetary cooling. (If and when there is unequivocal evidence of cooling, I can provide an explanation of how the sun is causing the cooling and what to expect if a solar forced Heinrich event is unfolding.) (more…)

Orbital movie

Nice video on the orbital dynamics of the earth alone, but no mention of the lunar interactions, will keep searching…

30 years of soil moisture imaged from satellite data


What you are seeing is monthly averages (I think) the way they dance between about four different patterns makes me wish that the data was sorted by lunar declinational periods of 27.3 days so the four fold patterns of the repeating jet stream location shifts could be better visualized. I would like to see the whole map remain in view instead of the zooming around to make political statements about weather events while loosing the overall view, by doing so they might have reached a bigger audience, but lost the objective transfer of usable total view of all data available. In the same vein I would have liked to have seen both the complete loop of the actuals as well as the anomalies.

(note to self) acquire the data and make the the movies you want to see, the (almost affordable) technology is available you know. Thanks for covering this story I’ll add this to my list of things to do when I win the lottery. Soon as I get the bugs worked out of the new map update on this site I will be working on making several more movies to show lunar declinational effects on the weather and climate.

Journal of Geophysical Researcharticle on Lunar declinational tides


Monthly lunar declination extremes’ influence on tropospheric circulation patterns

Key Points

  • Monthly lunar declination deform Rossby longwaves
  • The deformation signal is distinctly regional and high latitude
  • A case study of the Great Storm of 1987 demonstrates effect

Short-term tidal variations occurring every 27.3 days from southern (negative) to northern (positive) maximum lunar declinations (MLDs), and back to southern declination of the moon have been overlooked in weather studies. These short-term MLD variations’ significance is that when lunar declination is greatest, tidal forces operating on the high latitudes of both hemispheres are maximized. We find that such tidal forces deform the high latitude Rossby longwaves. Using the NCEP/NCAR reanalysis data set, we identify that the 27.3 day MLD cycle’s influence on circulation is greatest in the upper troposphere of both hemispheres’ high latitudes. The effect is distinctly regional with high impact over central North America and the British Isles. Through this lunar variation, midlatitude weather forecasting for two-week forecast periods may be significantly improved.

Austrailan lunar tidal study

Paul Vaughan says:

Just learned of this brand new release:

Wilson, I.R.G. (2012). Lunar tides and the long-term variation of the peak latitude anomaly of the summer sub-tropical high pressure ridge over Eastern Australia. The Open Atmospheric Science Journal 6, 49-60.

Will read when time permits.

[I have read and saved it is very informative but does not investigate declinational components driving the meridional flow surges in the atmosphere, just pressure waves of the interactions of the solar  pressure and the “lunar tidal lifting” timing effects]
