Besides the respect that I have for Tim Ball’s abilities and understanding of our climate, this piece puts together the mechanisms that I am convinced control our climate and weather. Thanks to Albert Jacobs of the Friends of science for sending this to me. And thanks to others like Piers Corbyn who has made a life out of analyzing the effects of solar/Earth magnetic interactions, the late Timo Niroma who analyzed the solar sunspot cycles and their effect on our planet, as well as Will Alexander who predicted the solar effect on rainfall/drought in Africa. And not to forget Oliver Manual who first showed me how the Sun was not a stable star but was often “an insolent child”. There were others who have made significant impacts on my understanding of the solar /climate/ Earth relationship where Paul Vaughn was particularly astute. Paul’s charts have been a source of confusion, generally followed by a breakthrough in awareness of the total effect of the whole system. This is a great piece worthy of a careful read.
Opinion; Dr. Tim Ball
Way back in the last century, I suggested that in this 21st century the dominant issue in science would be magnetism and in resources water. This especially applies to climatology, where, thanks to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), they are either marginalized or ignored. It is not the only damage the IPCC have done. They kept the focus almost exclusively on CO2, and temperature within the atmosphere, at the expense of many other factors. William Kininmonth explains,
Climate models track the transfer of energy through the Earth system. The only boundary condition to the Earth system is solar intensity; everything else is dependent on the composition and physical/chemical/biological processes within the Earth system.
The recent article about the role of the “oceanic conveyor belt” in climate is nothing new, but is a reminder of IPCC narrowness. It is even worse with regard to extraterrestrial…
