RT Cahill of Flinders University in Adelaide published the original story in Progress in Physics 10: issue 4 (Oct 2014, page 236-242) and it was reproduced, in part, at the NCGT Journal. It claims space speed fluctuations cause solar flares. The direction and magnitude of the space flow has been detected from numerous different experimental techniques and is close to the normal to the plane of the ecliptic. Zener diode data shows fluctuations in speed closely matches Sun solar cycle 23 flare count (the current solar cycle) and reveal that major flares follow major space speed fluctuations by some 6 days. These space speed fluctuations are the actual gravitational waves and have a significant magnitude. This discovery is a significant application of the dynamical space model and means science will be able to predict, by 5 days, the next major flare emitted from the Sun. Space flow turbulence impacts on the Earth's climate – and can imput energy into the system (the atmosphere). Large scale space fluctuations affect the Earth as well as the Sun and explain temperatures in relation to solar activity – such as sun spots. It also shows that sun spots, themselves, do not necessarily impact on Earth temperature (which seems to negate quite a few sceptics as well as climate scientists who are now looking at the role of the Sun). The character of current diminishing gravitational waves may mean we are in for a cooling period on Earth over the next 30 years.
