Sun quakes, the March weather, and solar induced climate change

4 Apr 2012

At ... sun quakes can be produced from eruptions of magnetic field and charged particles, according to the National Academy Meeting 2012, which is apparently a revamp of a former In the News post on sun quakes - as created by CMEs.

At .... warm March weather was not caused by global warming in spite of record highs (in large parts of North America and the UK). The biggest factor was wind as low pressure in the Pacific NW and high pressure New England created a funnel for warm air in the Gulf of Mexico to head north. What was unusual, it continues, is the blocking system causing the wind pattern to remain static for a fortnight. This is reminiscent of the Russian heat wave and Pakistan floods last year, also the result of a blocking system and attributed by Piers Corbyn at to solar factors - namely a prominent solar flare. The same situation may thus apply in this instance we might think as a prominent sun spot and flare preceded the fortnight's heatwave in the UK and eastern US (including the Mid West and Chicago). The article claims a similar thing happened in 1910 but ends with the obligatory paragraph or so of CAGW nonsense.

At ... we have solar flares and CMEs from June 2011 mixed up with cosmic radiation. The latter, it is suggested, might become a problem in coming years as a result of slowing solar activity.
