Shifts in climate

This is the null hypothesis of natural variability that is responsible for the 179 year patterns of heat peaks as seen in the period from 1993 to 2008, with the synod conjunction of Neptune with Uranus in 1993 with the Earth passing them occurred in NH late spring, by 1998 NH midsummer, peaking the heating effects of the ENSO driven by lunar declination, then as the lunar declination angle at culmination peaked in 2005, there by giving rise to the surge in global hurricane production, as a result of the global circulation turbulence at the turning of the atmospheric tide, as the polar jets came back toward the equator, the hurricane and severe weather patterns have decreased considerably.
Now in 2010 the earth’s synod conjunction with Uranus and Neptune are occurring in fall about 30 days apart, the effect is causing more intense fall type weather patterns, in a few more years the peak precipitation will be in the form of heavy winter snows in the NH. The peak heat effects will no longer come at midsummer, and the “CAGW” “Hansen modified” GISS temperature signal will disappear, although the plant food CO2 levels will increase, thanks to China and India helping to support the growing global population.
