Diagram from 50 year old NASA book about the climate which is still very relevant today: note that the top of this diagram is ‘solar radiation’.
Despite all the name calling, viciousness, cruelty, censorship of anyone who understands how the sun is the #1 big time major driver of climate and temperatures on our planet, global warmists who refuse to look out the window or who live in places that never saw glaciation during the previous Ice Ages, those of us who recognize the first signs of another Little (we pray!) Ice Age continue to chip away at the global warming behemoth. Reality is on our side and will be more and more obvious to nearly everyone outside of Southern California and parts of Australia.
A paper published today in Journal of Atmospheric and Solar-Terrestrial Physics finds a “strong and stable correlation” between the millennial variations in sunspots and the temperature in Antarctica over the past 11,000 years. In stark contrast, the authors find no strong or stable correlation between temperature and CO2 over that same period.
“We find that the variations of SSN [sunspot number] and T [temperature] have some common periodicities, such as the 208 year (yr), 521 yr, and ~1000 yr cycles. The correlations between SSN and T are strong for some intermittent periodicities. However, the wavelet analysis demonstrates that the relative phase relations between them usually do not hold stable except for the millennium-cycle component. The millennial variation of SSN leads that of T by 30–40 years, and the anti-phase relation between them keeps stable nearly over the whole 11,000 years of the past. As a contrast, the correlations between CO2 and T are neither strong nor stable.”
This is taking direct aim at the global warmists. Bravo. About time, more and more papers will be coming out refuting this bizarre religion that seems to be sucking the life out of climatology and space sciences. This paper, like so many other strikes at the dogma, won’t see any coverage in the mainstream media.
There are many, many scientists who are now getting quite furious about being censored or silenced and even when scientific publications begin to publish the truth, our media owners hide this news from everyone and yes, this is a conspiracy! And the people doing this also do other conspiratorial things to hide news from all of us. They notoriously do this and they plot how to do this!
I have the 1978 edition of this NASA book about the sun: Sun, Weather, and Climate: John R. Herman, Richard A. Goldberg …click here to read the entire book: http://www.leif.org/EOS/Sun-Weather-Climate.pdf
“A growing mass of evidence suggests that transient events on the Sun affect our weather and long-term variations of the Sun’s energy output affect our climate. Solar terrestrial exploration can help establish the physical cause and effect relationships between solar stimuli and terrestrial responses. When these relationships are understood, science will have an essential tool for weather and climate prediction.” This paragraph, written by Robert D. Chapman as part of a proposal for a five-year plan for Solar Terrestrial Programs in the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, is an indication of the present status of Sun-weather/climate investigations.
Kitt Peak National Observatory was founded by my dad:
Kitt Peak was selected by its first director, Aden B. Meinel, in 1958 as the site for a national observatory under contract with the National Science Foundation (NSF) and was administered by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy. The land was leased from theTohono O’odham under a perpetual agreement.
McMath–Pierce solar telescope was launched because my father was very curious about the Ice Ages and why they began so abruptly, end suddenly and are periodic in nature. He suspected it had something to do with the sun changing its characteristics.
TheMcMath–Pierce solar telescopeis a 1.6 mf/54reflectingsolar telescope at Kitt Peak National ObservatoryinArizona,USA. The building was designed by Myron Goldsmithand built in 1962. It is the largest telescope of its kind in the world and is named for astronomers Robert McMathand Keith Pierce. At the dedication in 1962, Dr. Waterman read a letterfrom President Kennedystarting with:
“ The great new solar telescope at the Kitt Peak National Observatory in Arizona is a source of pride to the nation. The largest instrument for solar research in the world, it presents American astronomers with a unique tool for investigating the nearest of the stars, our sun. This project is of exceptional interest to all our citizens…
This observatory was my playground when I was a kid. My grandfather always told me, ‘We should study our nearest star, the sun, not ignore it.’ My father eventually decided he was right about this. My father persuaded NASA to focus on the sun, too. Then, for some horrible reason, NASA has dropped the sun as the main driver and decided it is all CO2 that makes ‘climate change’ which is pure insanity. But lucrative for government funding which began to collapse under Reagan, Bush Sr. and Clinton until money was revived by making NASA a ‘we are roasting to death!’ propaganda machine for the CO2 derivatives market.’
Back to the book my father gave me half a century ago:
The literature on this subject covers a period of more than 100 years, and many distinguished scientists have contributed. Nevertheless, until very recently, Sun-weather/climate investigations have not been taken very seriously by many scientists. In the last fewyears, compelling (but not absolutely conclusive) evidence for correlations between solar variations and the area of tropospheric cyclones has helped to make this subject suitable for serious studies. Almost every large solar-terrestrial symposium now includes at least one session on Sun-weather/climate investigations.
So true!!! I remember those days really well because I participated in these meetings to some degree! I knew many of the scientists!!! Since early childhood!!!!!! Suddenly, these meetings have ceased. Now, it is omerta, silence. No media stories about talk about sun spots! Remember sun spots? I bet many young people have no idea the real driver of ‘hot or cold’ is those pesky sun spots!
This book is particularly welcome at a time at which many astronomers, space scientists, geophysicists, and meteorologists are entering the field of Sun-weather/climate investigation. The subject is an example par excellence of an interdisciplinary endeavor in which any single scientist is not likely to have professional competence throughout the entire range of relevant subject matter. The literature on the subject is often confusing and contradictory and of highly variable quality.
Yes, people flooded in for a while and there was all sorts of papers published. Today, the CO2 storyline has locked out everyone quite literally. These clowns locked out my own highly regarded father just before he died of a broken heart. I am still furious about that.
Within the present state of meteorological art, short-term weather forecasts for a given region are rarely accurate beyond a lead time of about 2 days. Longer-term forecasts (up to about 30 days) based on computer modeling of atmosphere systems are marginally effective, and long-term changes in climate are anybody’s guess.
NOAA’s long range predictions are total fantasy. For the last several years until recently, they uniformly showed only ‘warmer than ever before’ predictions. Now, they concede that the near future might not be warm at all but this is niggardly done. At no point have they shown the true nature of extreme cold in the Midwest and Great Lakes, for example.
The only way in which this state of affairs can be improved is to improve the predictability of weather and climate. Standard meteorological techniques, even with more sophisticated and complicated computer modeling techniques, can be improved only by introducing new concepts of the workings of the whole atmospheric system.
One key element that has been largely ignored and that we believe could be crucial to a better understanding and predictability of weather and climate is the possible influence of solar activity on meteorological and climatological parameters. We use the term solar activity to distinguish the transient and energetic outbursts of solar energy from the more regular radiation often termed the solar constant.
I highly recommend this old book, I wish there were new ones since we have more observations of the sun to include! Rats. I am so pissed about all of this.
This book, by the way, makes zero mention of CO2 as anything important. Cosmic rays are talked about, for example. But not CO2. The CO2 hysteria is a mania, not science. A very lucrative mania and users of energy are being heavily taxed and seeing the beginnings of a deterioration in services thanks to this stupid mania. The EU is strangling the people of Europe to force them into fixing the imaginary CO2 problem.
This is going to kill millions and millions of people if it doesn’t start WWIII.
