60 Year Oscillation

At ... the 60 year oscillation is an obvious feature in climate data sets - but only back to 1850. Prior to that date it is not so obvious. Javier has posted an article on the 60 year cycle in which he says prior to 1850 it was variable and is not well identified during the Little Ice Age. The reason why may emerge later. A side effect of this situation is that the origin of the oscillation is an unknown - and although it is often said to be associated with the Sun this might not be strictly so.

Rossby Waves

At ... the headline is, waves similar to those controlling weather on Earth have been found on the Sun. The research is published in Nature Astronomy this month, May of 2018. They are what is known as Rossby waves which propagate in the direction opposite to rotation, have lifetimes of several months, and maximise amplitude at the Sun's equator. Rossby waves also occur in the oceans and the atmosphere of the Earth.

Stone of Destiny

A complication has arisen to the Stone of Destiny identification - the piece of red sandstone that is incorporated into the coronation chair in Westminster Abbey. Rosalind Jones in Deposits magazine 27 (summer of 2011) says the Stone of Scone, used to crown the kings of Scotland in Perthshire, and apprehended by Edward I after his conquest of the Scots, may not have been the genuine article. In other words, it may have been switched to a local stone - the red sandstone of Perthshire.

Red Air Glow

The image below is of red air glow over the Atacama desert in Chile - courtesy of (May 11th). Photographer Yuri Betelsky took the image - the air glow was so bright parts of the Milky Way were barely visible because of the intensity of the red glow. This is caused by chemical interactions in the atmosphere - via ultra violet radiation. The red air glow was floating in a band 87 km above the surface of the Earth. Betelsky has captured air glow on film on many occasions - but rarely as bright as on this occasion.

Sea Ice Graph that says it all

The climate alarmists with the media hanging on their coat tails have been bleating about a melting Arctic all winter long - just because we had a warm November (2017) and a warmish month in the early year (2018) but what is really happening out there in the Arctic where in spite of the so called warming spells it has remained under freezing point and in almost total darkness.

Velikovsky Tribute

This tribute to 'Worlds in Collision' comes from a UFO web site. However, it was inspired by a recent headline, in April, that a wandering binary star sideswiped the solar system 70,000 years ago and knocked dozens of comets and asteroids into orbits contrary to mainstream thinking. David Halperin says, being of that generation his mind went back to 'Worlds in Collision' - go to ...

At ... genetic studies are said to have shown a connection between the Lemba tribe of Zimbabwe and the Jews. This apparently supports the theory of Robin Brown-Lowe in his book, 'The City of Solomon' (Sutton Publishing:2003). The World Jewish Congress article goes back to 2010 and a report of the story broadcast by the BBC. The Lemba live in central Zimbabwe and northern South Africa, about 80,000 strong.

Giant Wave

Interesting link at ... a 78 foot tall wave was recorded in New Zealand, the largest on record (but the records don't go very far back).

However, more importantly, at ... we learn there is now strong evidence that shows changes in co2 levels in the atmosphere have no significant effect on global temperatures. Yes, co2 changes in the atmosphere do not impact on temperatures at the surface. It is flannel.
