  1. And I'd still have to disagree with you GW...! ;)

    Still, I shan't argue with you because, well, we've been through it all before. Bottom line: I think our current understanding of climate drivers is wrong. The fact that something as compelling as the LI is so easily swept aside in favour of the pre-assumed "concensus" is, I feel, rather disturbing.

    Anyway, I didn't come here to argue. As ever, time will tell...

    =)


  2. I read recently that something weird has happened on the Sun - solar maximum appears to have peaked and passed in the Sun's northern hemisphere, but activity is still ongoing in the southern hemisphere.

    I have no idea what that means for the cycle as a whole, but it is interesting nonetheless. Of particular interest is this paragraph:

    Such a large asymmetry between hemispheres could be a sign of big changes ahead, says Steven Tobias, a mathematician at the University of Leeds, UK, who models what drives the sun's magnetic field. According to his models, such a situation precedes an extended quiet phase called a grand minimum. "Changes in symmetry are more indicative of going into a grand minimum than the strength of the cycle," he says.


  3. Hi C-Bob!

    I'm happy to see you still keep an eye on us in here!!

    From what I'm given to believe the impacts that particulate pollution impart are far greater than any solar variation we have measured? The 'Horizon' docu had a guy advising us that climate models had used a figure fro lost solar (due to dimming) of 0.5 to 1% but the global average of deflected solar seems to be nearer to 10% of that arriving here?

    Hi there, Gray-Wolf :)

    Still keeping half an eye on the board every now and again, just waiting to pop up and spew my usual stuff when everybody least expects it! ;)

    No time at the moment to elaborate further, but the whole crux of the LI hypothesis in the first place was that solar variations were not given their due impact. Just because a scientist (or scientists) say they have taken solar variation into account does not necessarily mean that they actually have. The sunspot cycle clearly correlates with global temperatures, even over the last hundred years, as was shown by a (comparatively) simple mathematical equation, into which were added real-world numerical values.

    There's more here than meets the eye...!

    =)


  4. It was made quite plain that climate models have underestimated, by a factor of 10, the power of pollution to 'cool' the planet and yet that strength of 'cooling' has not stopped the top ten global temps from turning up year upon year (even whilst nature also tried to 'cool' the planet via her phases and the sun did it's best with an extended minimum and low solar max sunspot numbers.to cool the planet also).

    So what do we have in store over this next 15yrs as the power of the sun is turned back up from it's full power and dimming fades?

    As a point of order, 1) we don't actually know what the Sun is going to do over the next few cycles and 2) the LI (if anyone remembers that) did predict that temperatures wouldn't start to drop for about a decade or so. Has the Sun "done its best" yet, or is it still working on it?

    Here's me, CB, still banging on about the Sun...

    :)
