Only people with oversized egos believe that mankind has caused global warming.

Scientific Consensus is an Oxymoron

Just throwing this out there...I have been following space weather since I was a kid. I was actually going to go to school for astronomy but I couldn't decide on where I wanted to go to in time. I love the scientific side of all of it.

I created a page on my website back in 2006 dedicated to auroral data which shows proton/electron flux charts, different x-ray views of the sun and sun spots, real time kp index charts, auroral ovals, bz flow charts, and pretty much anything else you'd need to track the sun and it's happenings. The link is http://www.furiousskies.com/aurora.html

Besides SpaceWeather, my site is actually the only one I ever go to anymore. You can click on any chart you see and it will send you to the linking address if you need more information.

Oh, more Deja Vu moments....I think this thread going into the Cycle 23 Sunspot Minimum was one of my first posts and exchanges with Satx & Harvestmoon back in 2008

Not long after that Wattsupwiththat at http://wattsupwiththat.com/widget/
came up with their "World Climate Widget"

Since I already had a WeatherUnderground 'local weather' widget on my Desktop, I've been using the CO2/Sunspots/Solar Flux widget now for maybe 2 years??

But on a related note checkout http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/SWN/index.html


BTW....why do I keep thinking we've met someplace, John Galt? lol

MINI ICE AGE ON THE WAY

http://weeklyworldnews.com/headlines/264...n-the-way/

Renowned climate scientist predicts a new ice age is on the way! Scientists, climatologists and the mayor of London are all in agreement – the cold snap in Europe is going to get worse, much worse. A new ice age is underway.
According to Piers Corbyn, a British scientist who gets the climate right about 85 per cent of the time, were absolutely entering a new ice age. Serious business people – notably in farming – are starting to invest in his forecasts.
Corbyn, an astrophysicist, gets it right again and again.
In November, Corbyn said it would be the coldest for 100 years. He was correct. He predicted a snowy December for Europe, and he put his own money on a white Christmas for most of the U.S. – something that no one, not even AccuWeather had predicted.
How does he do it?
He looks at the flow of particles from the Sun, and how they interact with the upper atmosphere, especially air currents such as the jet stream, and he looks at how the Moon and other factors influence those streaming particles.
He takes a snapshot of what the Sun is doing at any given moment, and then he looks back at the record to see when it last did something similar. Then he checks what the weather was like on Earth at the time – and he makes a prophecy.


Corbyn believes that the last three winters are a harbinger of a mini ice age that could be upon us by 2015, and that it could start to be colder than at any time in the last 500 years. He believes there is also a chance that full-blow ice age is cyclically overdue and might occur by 2020.
What about global warming? Well, anthropogenic global warming ignores the role of the Sun. Corbyn believes that all that matters is the mood of the star that gives life to the world? The Sun is incomparably vaster and more powerful than any work of man. We are forged from a few clods of solar dust. The Sun powers every plant and form of life, and one day the Sun will turn into a red giant and engulf us all.
