Did a large CME cause the Great Chicago Fire?

The Carrington Event -1859 - at the peak of solar cycle 10 - as the Sun was beginning to wake up from the Dalton Minimum. One year after the peak of the next solar cycle, bracketed by events due to a magnetically hyperactive Sun, the Great Chicago Fire. On that hot, dry, and windy autumn day, three ...

Re: Earth's Magnetic Polar Reversal - the mechanism

NASA held a live Q&A this afternoon. I asked some Qs. I like to start simple and work my way up: "What are the "wild particles" trapped by the magnetic fields of that region? Where do they come from? Does the region become overcharged at times? If so, how does the system handle it? How would it be h...

Re: Earth's Magnetic Polar Reversal - the mechanism

To me it makes sense that the events observed on the Sun that are concurrent with the regularly occurring 11 year cyclic polarity flip should also be the same type of events we would see on Earth for its own polarity flip. The variable spin rate from equator to pole on the Sun's surface is well know...

Earth's Magnetic Polar Reversal - the mechanism

Differential rotational speed of the Sun surface = 11 yr. mag pole reversal & heliosphere weakens. The effects are seen in the sunspot cycle. Sunspots begin a cycle at higher latitudes and move equator-ward. As the cycle progresses, magnetic activity weakens as magnetic field lines go from north/sou...

Re: About that "Micro-nova"...or "Major Solar Outburst"...what I would call Enormous CME (ECME)

Andy, The battle against the CAGW brigade on twitter is quite a furious one. A new tactic has appeared with promulgators of the scam closing off their accounts from scrutiny by those who expose the faulty science they use to brainwash the unsuspecting masses.

Re: Mass Animal Deaths - Frozen Animal Life - Land & Oceans

As noted in Christian's most recent video, the drought condition brought on in parts of Australia as we enter the Eddy Minimum is taking a large toll on farming. Efforts to try and mitigate the toll include ecologically destructive methods of lake and river water re-allocation in an effort to preven...

Another for the lesser likelihood side of the ledger: A paper from Paul LaViolette with some data found in the Greenland Ice Sheet and lunar samples that falls in line BOTH WITH a solar event linked to the Younger Dryas mass extinction AND the con...

No well, off-grid water. Solar powered sourcing. Emergency back-up solution.

https://www.zeromasswater.com/ Cody Friesen, a materials scientist and associate professor at Arizona State University, spent nearly seven years developing the Source Hydropanel. Using solar power, a single system can produce enough drinking water for two to three people each day--even in desert co...

Re: What did you do to prepare today?

Thanks Andy, My "back" problem, being the cervical vertabrae was all in my neck. It's just as bad as the back but you can't even turn your head. You can't walk or really move at all. I've had more painful things in my life. A kidney problem that went on for years leading to sepsis before emergency e...
