|1-11-08 - DREAM - I seemed to be on the 5th floor of a building and
I saw what looked like the sun floating past the west window. There were
flames shooting of one side of it - (10:00 on the clock)
to get my roommates to look at it, but they were busy trying to find
clothes to wear for the day.
I then saw what looked like sunlight coming up over the horizon in
the northwest and I knew it should be coming up in the northeast as it was
7:30 a.m. I felt very distressed by this too.
Then as I watched, I realized the floating sun with the flames going
by my window was a giant balloon on strings held by a man on the ground.
I was looking out the north window now and the man was dressed like
an evil clown and he pointed to a UPS truck parked by the north curb of
the street. When he looked back, I pointed to the truck and then to
myself and he nodded, indicating he was delivering a package for me.
One of my roommates, who was dressed in a long white nightgown and
barefoot, almost stepped out the window which had become a door - she
looked rather angelic - with blonde hair and that long nightgown. I
made her step back so she wouldn't fall out the door.
So then we went down to the lobby to fetch the package. I somehow
knew this was not going to be a welcome package, considering the means by
which it was delivered.
There were a lot of old ladies in the lobby. My roommate and I
took the large package we found by the door and took it to a table to open
it in the lobby as it a group of brightly wrapped rounded gifts that was
obviously baked goodies and cakes for Christmas.
One of the old women said, "I just turned 70 - how old are you?"
I answered, "69". (This is true through Christmas of 2008)
She helped spread out the goodies on the tables for the others to
I wanted desperately to eat some but I knew I couldn't, so I left
the white bread, globs of butter, and turkey slices all stay on the
platter for them and I only took a few pieces of turkey for my roommates
and office co-workers upstairs.
I went to my upstairs office then, and the head secretary was
complaining that she had forgotten her desk key somewhere. On top of
her desk was a golden object that was more brilliant than anything I've
ever seen in person. She showed me a brilliant gold key that went with it
and it had a round end on it, not like a door key.
I asked her if I could see it closer because I'm nearsighted, but
she was reluctant to let me come too close to it. She stood about six feet
away from me and I still couldn't clearly see what it was. She told
me then that the gold key went to a pipe organ.
I told her my father could identify the key for her, but she
wouldn't let me near it.
Solar Cycle 24
John Jay Harper discussed how
Solar Cycle 24 marks the start of a
disastrous cycle for our climate and
civilization. The new solar cycle, which
according to experts is currently under
way, indicates that solar activity —
sunspots and solar flares — is likely to
begin increasing. Harper said the activity
will reach its peak on or about the year
2012, in agreement with the Mayan calendar
and other end-time prophecies.
Harper expects Solar Cycle 24 to trigger a
series of cataclysmic events. "Solar
flares have been equated with flu
pandemics, with increased earthquake
activity and underwater volcanism," he
explained. Harper said Greenland's ice cap
will likely melt, forcing additional ocean
water toward the equator and causing a
disruption in the axial tilt of our
planet. He said an electromagnetic pole
shift will occur as well.
The disruption to our agricultural,
economic, and telecommunications systems
will put us back into the pre-industrial
age, Harper forecasted. All is not lost,
however, as Harper believes these events
will lead to an integration of science and
religion into a single truth — the idea of
energy transformation. He said many will
survive the apocalypse because of their
ability to link into a unified mind field.
Solar flares produce high energy
particles and radiation that are dangerous to living organisms. However,
at the surface of the Earth we are well protected from the effects of
solar flares and other solar activity by the Earth's
magnetic field and atmosphere. The most dangerous emissions from
flares are energetic charged particles (primarily high-energy
electromagnetic raditation (primarily
The x-rays from flares are
stopped by our atmosphere well above the Earth's surface. They do disturb
ionosphere, however, which in turn disturbs some radio communications.
Along with energetic
ultraviolet radiation, they heat the Earth’s outer atmosphere, causing
it to expand. This increases the drag on Earth-orbiting satellites,
reducing their lifetime in orbit. Also, both intense radio emission from
flares and these changes in the atmosphere can degrade the precision of
Global Positioning System (GPS) measurements.
The energetic particles produced
at the Sun in flares seldom reach the Earth. When they do, the Earth's
magnetic field prevents almost all of them from reaching the Earth's
surface. The small number of very high energy particles that does reach
the surface does not significantly increase the level of radiation that we
experience every day.
The most serious effects on
human activity occur during major
geomagnetic storms. It is now understood that the major geomagnetic
storms are induced by coronal mass ejections (CMEs). Coronal mass
ejections are usually associated with flares, but sometimes no flare is
observed when they occur. Like flares, CMEs are more frequent during the
active phase of the Sun's approximately 11 year cycle. The last maximum in
solar activity was in the year 2000. The next maximum is expected to occur
in late 2011 or in 2012.
According to one leading solar
physicist, the sun is turning blue.
David Hathaway of the NASA Marshall
Space Flight Center is using red and
blue to tag sunspots of the old and
new solar cycles. When he plots the
color-coded sunspot numbers, it's
a change is taking place.
"New Solar Cycle 24 is on the
upswing while old Solar Cycle
23 is decaying," he says. The
sun is still in the pits of a
deep solar minimum, he points
out, but the little blue bars
in Hathaway's plot show that
it won't last forever. An
increasing number of
new-cycle sunspots in the
months ahead should propel
the sun out of the doldrums,
eventually leading to a

Possible Smoking Gun
- Tinkering With The
By Ted Twietmeyer
7-7-2003 - I heard a long, personal story of alien
manipulation today from a dear friend who is a life-long
abductee/contactee, which I know for certain is true. I can't let this lay
in secret - because I've seen the evidence of what she told me on the
website of another friend - in the sun. The black-ops ETs with IQ's
of between 300 and 400 with supercomputers have been working for 80 years
on the physics of making the 'Tuning' occur faster than it should and the
exact moment necessary to make the earth change frequencies to the
positive, because their own planet turned negative in their own past. I've
been told that 11 teams of 10 psychics each have been in training since
the 70's, to work on this project.
That might be all well and good in their minds to make
something positive rather than negative, if you don't understand what it
means to have the earth 'Tuned". It ultimately means the deaths of
billions of people will occur before the zero point is reached.
I hate to admit that I've heard this stuff in other
places for years and didn't want to accept it. My friend said that over
the weekend, some ETS who are like the US black government - hijacked and
arrested and held hostage the ET she usually works with. Then they tried
to manipulate her into using her psychic powers to do something she had
decided was not a good thing to do. This whole thing is related to
HAARP. It seems that where the
HAARP scientists said that they were going to bombard our own atmosphere -
they were bombarding the sun instead. I don't know if you follow space
weather at all, but the sun was supposed to reach its peak and diminish,
but instead has continually gotten worse As a result, earth weather is
also out of control. Sunspots, solar storms; what is going on is not just
sunspots - but huge explosions. I've seen the photos of 'light' perhaps
lazer torpedoes being shot at the sun for quite some time now. Kent
Steadman has been following those for a couple years now. We have the
photographs of these torpedoes hitting the sun also. The evidence is there
for all to see. It affect both our weather here on earth as well as
communications. I don't really personally care about the communications so
much because I can live without a cellphone - but people are getting
killed because of the violent weather. And this is just the beginning. A
pole shift is what is being worked towards because of the magnetics but
that's not all either; the core of the earth has become unstable too,
which will cause the pole shift. There will be a large increase in
volcanic activity before the shift happens.
7-25-03 - It has come to my knowledge that the little
greys who are scientists have come to some kind of 'awakening' since this
event occurred two weeks ago. They assumed all this while that because
they had a 'hive mind/consciousness' with each other that they knew
everything that was going on within their own government, and just now
found out that they were being lied to by their own government. (Sounds
familiar to me thinking about my own government while I write this too)
Because they are beholden to their government to feed, house, and
transport all these little scientists around the galaxy, they don't have
much of a choice if they want to continue their work.
Meanwhile, since this weekend event occurred, there is
a lot of thought being given to the topic of the 'spirit' of the planets
and sun, not just of human beings and animals. This is the awakening that
the ETs are going to have to deal with in the very near future if they
haven't considered it already. Because these crafts are so large
and take so much metal and other materials to construct, it takes an
entire planet, which up to now have been completely destroyed to provide
that material. They are careful to make sure there are are no animals or
other life on these planets before they destroy them, yet no consideration
has been given to whether the planet had a 'spirit' housed within it. The
Native Americans were well aware of the spirit of the planet and of the
sun, as well as other ancient tribes in Africa. Why weren't the ETs aware
of this? Or were they so scientific minded, (perhaps like our own
scientists) that if it couldn't be proven in a laboratory and tested and
retested, that it didn't have life?
These questions need to be addressed soon or this
program has basically come to an end. Now that the psychics are aware of
what is going on with the 'spirit factor' they will not participate in the
program. Their eyes have been opened to the truth.

has been ongoing debate whether Cycle 24 began on July 1st
2006, or began January 4th 2008. What determines a new solar
cycle is when the first sunspot distributes a ‘reverse’
magnetic field. Over the last several months, the sunspot and
solar activity have been extremely mild. This is known as
’solar minimum’. From this point on, solar activity will begin
to ramp up with more significant activity becoming noticeable
by the end of this year. Cycle 23 introduced us to the largest
solar flare “ever recorded”. On November 4th 2003 a solar
flare coming from just around the western limb of the Sun
exploded. It was measured as an X-40. Until this moment,
nothing had measured past an X-9. (at least since instruments
were developed to measure). In addition to this, Cycle 23
showed us dozens of X-class flares, and even more numbers of
M-class. Also note Cycle 24’s ‘apex’ (maximum) occurs between
2011 and 2012. I suggest our Mayan elders knew of this all
along and is in association with Mayan prophecy and calendar.
Solar Storm Warning: You Have One Year or Less to Prepare.
The federal government now predicts a new cycle of solar
storms will begin to intensify by spring 2008. By this time we
will start to see larger and possibility of dangerous
consequences. The new set of storms are expected to peak
around the end of 2011 and beginning of 2012. That’s the
conclusion of some scientists at NASA and NOAA.
On November 4th 2003 a solar flare and following CME
(coronal mass ejection) exploded just as it began rotating
over the western limb of the Sun. If it had been just 48 to 72
hours earlier, the flare would have been Earth directed and we
would have experienced a direct hit. The strength of this
event measured an X-40, of which such strength had never been
witnessed or anticipated. Even to this day we can only
speculate the damage it would have caused to our power grids,
satellites, GPS, and any number of devices which depend on
communication or directional satellites.” -

has been largely ignored because it is so
difficult to quantify over long periods.

role is the fact that its energy output waxes
and wanes every 11 years. This solar cycle, as
it is called, reached
in the middle of 2000 and achieved a
in 2002. It is now ramping down toward a solar

These global warming whackos are losing the argument, jd, but
they sure are persistent. The mere fact that they ignore these

Solar max has also been

It might seem logical to assume tie climate to solar
output, but firm connections are few. Other studies looking
further back in time have suggested a connection between
longer variations in solar activity and temperatures on Earth.
Examinations of ancient tree rings and other data show
temperatures declined starting in the 13th Century,
bottomed out at 2 degrees below the long-term average during
the 17th Century, and did not climb back to
previous levels until the late 19th Century.
Separate records of sunspots, auroral activity (the Northern
Lights) and terrestrial deposits of certain substances
generated in atmospheric reactions triggered by solar output,
suggest the Sun was persistently active prior to the onset of
this Little Ice Age, as scientists call the event.
Solar activity was lowest during the 17th
Century, when Earth was most frigid.
Large-scale ocean and climate variations on Earth can also
mask long-term trends and can make it difficult to sort out
what is normal, what is unusual, and which effects might or
might not result from shifts in solar radiation.
To get above all this, scientists rely on measurements of
total solar energy, at all wavelengths, outside Earth's
atmosphere. The figure they derive is called Total Solar
The new study shows that the TSI has increased by about 0.1
percent over 24 years. That is not enough to cause notable
climate change, Willson and his colleagues say, unless the
rate of change were maintained for a century or more.
On time scales as short as several days, the TSI can vary
by 0.2 percent due to the number and size of sunspots crossing
the face of the Sun. That shift, said to be insignificant to
weather, is however equal to the total amount of energy used
by humans, globally, for a year, the researchers estimate.
The study analyzed data from six satellites orbiting Earth
at different times over the 24 years. Willson ferreted out
errors in one of the datasets that had prevented previous
studies from discovering the trend.
A separate recent study of Sun-induced magnetic activity
near Earth, going back to 1868, provides compelling evidence
that the Sun's current increase in output goes back more than
a century, Willson said.
He said firm conclusions about whether the present changes
involve a long-term trend or a relatively brief aberration
should come with continued monitoring into the next solar
minimum, expected around 2006.

Mars Melt Hints at
Solar, Not Human, Cause for Warming, Scientist Says
warming on Earth and Mars suggests that our planet's
recent climate changes have a natural—and not a
human-induced—cause, according to one scientist's
Earth is currently experiencing rapid warming, which
the vast majority of climate scientists says is due to
humans pumping huge amounts of greenhouse gases into the
atmosphere. (Get an overview:
"Global Warming Fast Facts".)
Mars, too, appears to be enjoying more mild and balmy
In 2005 data from NASA's Mars Global Surveyor and
Odyssey missions revealed that the carbon dioxide "ice
caps" near Mars's south pole had been diminishing for
three summers in a row.
Habibullo Abdussamatov, head of space research at St.
Petersburg's Pulkovo Astronomical Observatory in Russia,
says the Mars data is evidence that the current global
warming on Earth is being caused by changes in the sun.
"The long-term increase in solar irradiance is
heating both Earth and Mars," he said.
Abdussamatov believes that changes in the sun's heat
output can account for almost all the climate changes we
see on both planets.
Mars and Earth, for instance, have experienced
periodic ice ages throughout their histories.
"Man-made greenhouse warming has made a small
contribution to the warming seen on Earth in recent
years, but it cannot compete with the increase in solar
irradiance," Abdussamatov said.
By studying fluctuations in the warmth of the sun,
Abdussamatov believes he can see a pattern that fits
with the ups and downs in climate we see on Earth and
Abdussamatov's work, however, has not been well
received by other climate scientists.
"His views are
completely at odds with the mainstream
scientific opinion," said Colin
Wilson, a planetary physicist at
England's Oxford University.
"And they contradict the extensive
evidence presented in the most recent
IPCC [Intergovernmental Panel on
Climate Change] report." (Related:
"Global Warming 'Very Likely' Caused
by Humans, World Climate Experts Say"
[February 2, 2007].)
||Mars's southern polar
ice cap, seen here in true

According to one scientist's
controversial take, the
simultaneous rise in
temperatures on Earth and Mars
indicates a natural—and not a
human—cause for global
warming. But the vast majority
of experts maintain that
humans are responsible for
Earth's climate changes and
that the Mars phenomenon is

Amato Evan, a climate scientist at
the University of Wisconsin, Madison,
added that "the idea just isn't
supported by the theory or by the
The conventional theory is that
climate changes on Mars can be
explained primarily by small
alterations in the planet's orbit and
tilt, not by changes in the sun.
"Wobbles in the orbit of Mars are
the main cause of its climate change
in the current era," Oxford's Wilson
"Don't Blame Sun for Global Warming,
Study Says" [September 13, 2006].)
All planets experience a few
wobbles as they make their journey
around the sun. Earth's wobbles are
known as Milankovitch cycles and occur
on time scales of between 20,000 and
These fluctuations change the tilt
of Earth's axis and its distance from
the sun and are thought to be
responsible for the waxing and waning
of ice ages on Earth.
Mars and Earth wobble in different
ways, and most scientists think it is
pure coincidence that both planets are
between ice ages right now.
"Mars has no [large] moon, which
makes its wobbles much larger, and
hence the swings in climate are
greater too," Wilson said.
Perhaps the biggest stumbling block
in Abdussamatov's theory is his
dismissal of the greenhouse effect, in
which atmospheric gases such as carbon
dioxide help keep heat trapped near
the planet's surface.
He claims that carbon dioxide has
only a small influence on Earth's
climate and virtually no influence on
But "without the greenhouse effect
there would be very little, if any,
life on Earth, since our planet would
pretty much be a big ball of ice,"
said Evan, of the University of
Most scientists now fear that the
massive amount of carbon dioxide
humans are pumping into the air will
lead to a catastrophic rise in Earth's
temperatures, dramatically raising sea
levels as glaciers melt and leading to
extreme weather worldwide.
Abdussamatov remains contrarian,
however, suggesting that the sun holds
something quite different in store.
"The solar irradiance began to drop
in the 1990s, and a minimum will be
reached by approximately 2040,"
Abdussamatov said. "It will cause a
steep cooling of the climate on Earth
in 15 to 20 years."

10, 2008 Huntsville, Alabama -
month ago on December 11, 2007, a patch of magnetism on
the sun was declared by NASA to be the first official
sunspot of the new Solar Cycle 24. The spot was in a
high-latitude on the sun with reversed polarity from the
previous Solar Cycle 23 that has been in minimum for a
long time. The sun has had a blank face without any
sunspots for days and weeks at a time. But from now
forward to 2012, sunspots should start appearing again all
over the sun, leading up to what NASA astrophysicist,
David Hathaway, Ph.D., thinks will be one of the more
intense solar maximums on record. Dr. Hathaway is the
Solar Physics Team Leader at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight
Center in Huntsville, Alabama. He received his Ph.D. in
astrophysics from the University of Colorado in Boulder in
The Solar Cycle 24 will last
approximately 11 years. The maximum will be around 2012 and the next minimum will start

It has been predicted by scientists
that Solar Cycle 24 will be the worst experienced in the
last 50 years. That's what we have to look forward to.
When Solar Cycle 25 begins, there will
be so few sunspots, that the earth will plunge back down
into a cooling period. It remains to be seen what

ALL EYES ARE ON THE SUN AFTER NOAA-
LED SOLAR CYCLE 24 PANEL PREDICTS UPCOMING PERIOD OF
INTENSE SOLAR STORMS
April 26, 2007 — All eyes are on the sun (though not
directly with the naked eye) now that the NOAA-led
Solar Cycle 24 Prediction Panel released its
official consensus solar cycle forecast at the
Workshop in Boulder, Colo., yesterday. The panel
agreed that the Earth will soon experience the start
of a period of intense solar storms and the exact
number of solar storms expected will become clearer
in time. The panel agreed that the Earth will soon
experience the start of a new cycle of solar storms
and the expected intensity of the upcoming cycle
will become clearer in time.
“The next 11-year cycle of solar storms will most
likely start next March and peak in late 2011 or
mid-2012,” said Doug Biesecker, a solar physicist
Space Environment Center in Boulder, Colo., who
also chaired the NASA-funded 12-person panel.
Although the effects of
solar storms are often seen from Earth as
beautiful lights dancing in the night sky (i.e., the
Northern Lights or aurora borealis), looks can be
deceiving. In reality, these storms can carry
tremendous power and travel at speeds up to 5
million miles per hour. Solar storms have been known
to knock out satellites, power supplies,
communications and navigation systems. Many of these
effects are transitory (and virtually invisible),
but they can be very disruptive and potentially
dangerous — both to the systems themselves and in
turn the nation’s economy. Damage to these systems
can also result in secondary effects that can
disrupt virtually every major infrastructure
dependant on them, including transportation,
security and emergency response systems,
telecommunications and other wireless networks and
electronic equipment. Solar storms even create a
biological threat to both astronauts and people
flying in aircraft at high altitudes and latitudes.
Therefore, the Solar Cycle 24 Prediction Panel’s
forecast is being used by various industry and
government groups for planning purposes, including
power companies, communication networks, satellite
manufacturers/operators and airline flight planners.
Unfortunately, the nation’s (and the world’s)
vulnerability to solar storms will only increase as
we become even more dependant on these technologies.
"As people become more dependent on space-based
technology, the potential far-reaching and dramatic
impacts of space weather make our mission more vital
each day," said Bill Murtagh, a space weather
forecaster at the NOAA Space Environment Center in
Boulder, Colo. "Accurate space weather measurements
and predictions are vital in mitigating the
potential impact of these storms."
“The Space Environment Center’s space-weather
alerts, warnings, and forecasts are a critical
component of NOAA’s seamless stewardship of the
Earth’s total environment, from the sun to the sea,”
said retired Vice Adm.
Conrad C. Lautenbacher, Ph.D., undersecretary of
commerce for oceans and atmosphere and NOAA
The NOAA SEC is the nation’s first alert of solar
activity and its affects on Earth. Just as NOAA’s
hurricane experts predict the upcoming season of
Atlantic storms and forecast individual hurricanes,
the agency’s space weather experts issue outlooks
for the next 11-year solar “season” and warn of
storms occurring on the sun that could impact the
Earth. Both the
NOAA National Hurricane Center and SEC are among
nine National Centers for Environmental Prediction.
SEC is also the world warning agency of the
International Space Environment Service, a
consortium of 11 member nations.
NOAA Perspectives on the Solar Cycle 24
“The prediction process was much more
challenging than the previous two solar cycle
forecasts because it was conducted much earlier
in the cycle and because of the wide array of
predictions that needed to be reconciled this
time around,” stated Biesecker. In all, the
panel evaluating more than 40 predictions from
15 different nation — some
predicting a small solar cycle with as little as
42 sunspots, while others predicted a larger
cycle with up to 185 sunspots (which would
nearly rival the record setting Cycle 19
observed in the 1950s).
“Since we have not even reached the solar
minimum or end of this solar cycle , we were
really pushing the envelope on this one,” said
Biesecker. “Solar cycle predictions are fairly
reliable once the cycle is underway, but prior
to that time the predictions are less certain —
although equally important.”
“The predictions for the strength of Solar Cycle
24 had more than a threefold difference among
them — that's a tremendous range," says
Murtagh. “Satellite design and mission
planning teams and other end users aren't always
able to sort through all the conflicting
information, so it is up to the NOAA Space
Environment Center and the rest of the panel to
come up with a single official prediction upon
which they can base their decisions.”
The Science Behind the Predictions
Eleven-year solar cycle forecasts
predict the number of sunspots which will occur
during a given solar cycle, and sunspots are
known to generate solar storms that could
potentially damage Earth systems. Like other
long-term weather forecasts, the solar cycle
forecast does not predict the time, intensity or
duration of the solar storms. In this way, the
solar cycle forecast is very much like NOAA's
seasonal hurricane outlook — the overall level
of activity for the season is forecast, but it
doesn't predict the specific time, intensity
etc. of any given storm. That is covered by more
short-term space weather warnings issued by the
NOAA the NOAA Space Environment Center.
Each 11-year solar cycle consists of a solar
maximum characterized by a large number of
sunspots (and solar storms) followed by a solar
minimum characterized by a smaller number of
sunspots (and solar storms). Currently, we are
approaching the end of Solar Cycle 23 (a solar
minimum) and are on the heels of the start of
Solar Cycle 24 (a solar maximum) — so the topic
on the minds of many people is the upcoming
Solar Cycle 24, its much anticipated solar
maximum, and the number of solar storms it will
The sun, like Earth, has seasons. The
sun’s season is dictated by sunspots and is
known as the 11-year solar cycle. Sunspots occur
when strong magnetic fields emerge through the
solar surface and allow the area to cool
slightly, thus making it appear as a dark spot
in contrast to the even hotter sun areas
surrounding it. These magnetically disturbed
regions are often the source of large solar
flares and coronal mass ejections from the sun.
At the beginning of each 11-year solar cycle,
sunspots first appear at high latitudes, but as
the cycle continues, sunspots start emerging
closer to the equator and eventually stop
forming all together as the cycle comes to a
close. Sunspots only last for a few weeks and
are basically tangled knots of magnetism
generated by the sun's “inner dynamo” (i.e., the
internal engine that powers/drives the sun).
Throughout their life, they decay, leaving
behind weak magnetic fields as their 'remains.'
Then the sun’s “dynamo conveyor belt”
(similar/analogous to the one that drives ocean
circulation on Earth, only it is made up of gas
on the sun) comes along and skims the surface of
the sun, sweeping up the magnetic fields of old,
dead sunspots. The sunspot 'remains' are dragged
toward the poles and then down to a depth of
200,000 km where the sun's magnetic dynamo
(internal engine) reenergizes (essentially
reincarnates) them. Once the sunspot 'remains'
are reincarnated, they become buoyant, float
back to the surface and create a brand new
sunspot! It takes about 40 years to perform one
complete circuit because the sun’s conveyer belt
only moves at a rate of about one meter per
second. Researchers believe the turning of the
belt — especially the speed of the belt —
controls the sunspot cycle.
“It is very dynamic, but basically the sun’s
dynamo conveyer belt ‘recycles’ old sunspots
from the current (or previous) solar cycle(s) to
form seeds which germinate new sunspots during
next (upcoming) solar cycle,” said Biesecker.
“It is important to understand this, because the
sun’s ‘dynamo conveyor belt’ forms the basis for
many of the predictions used in the panels final
Solar Cycle 24 forecast.”
Solar Cycle 24 Predictions and the
“Although they are too complex to describe in
detail here, there are approximately six
techniques used to predict the intensity of a
solar cycle,” said Biesecker. “The first three
are based on statistics and provide a sound
historical baseline upon which to forecast
future cycles. The other three are based on
physics and the sun’s dynamo conveyer belt
Like the previous two solar cycle predictions,
the final Solar Cycle 24 forecast was based on
various combinations of several of these
techniques, however there was a tendency to rely
less on statistical techniques and more on
physical techniques. It is important to note,
however, that the physical techniques are still
relatively new, full of uncertainties and part
of a new field of research NASA is studying
called helioseismology (which is analogous to
studying earthquakes on Earth).
“The biggest question right now is when will we
reach the solar minimum for the current Solar
Cycle , because that will essentially mark
the start of Solar Cycle 24,” said Biesecker.
“It will serve as a good ‘litmus test’ for the
validity of the models used in making the final
prediction. If a given model fails to accurately
predict the start of Solar Cycle 24, then it is
likely that it will also fail to accurately
predict the timing, duration and intensity of
the cycle’s peak [solar maximum] and may
therefore need to be eliminated from future
[updated] Solar Cycle 24 predictions. Therefore,
as the cycle progresses and we get more data,
the panel will need to reevaluate its original
predictions and periodically [annually] update
it over the next few years.”
According to Biesecker, we will have a better
idea of what solar weather has in store for us
in late 2008 when Solar Cycle 24 is on the rise.

THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH
The recent disclosure of a critical temperature
data revision by NASA climate experts under
cover-of-darkness poses as many questions as it
answers. With worried alarmists scurrying to either
dismiss the restatement's relevance or ignore it
altogether, and NASA itself descending to CYOA
tactics, the paramount issue remains that of
credibility both the agency's and the big
green scare machine's.
to the media-subdued mini-furor his amendment
sparked, NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies
(GISS) chief James Hansen reflexively
complained that 'deniers' were “making a
mountain of a molehill" about the 'insignificant'
revision. The overruled head eco-doomer mulishly
denied that the data update had any impact upon 'the
overall trend.' Ironically, while he's undoubtedly
wrong, he also happens to be quite right.
After all, only his fellow doomsayers ever
actually found any trend or anthropogenic evidence
in the old numbers to begin with. And while
the revisions are, indeed, significant, any enviro-plugged
short-term 'trend' they mitigate remains
In fact, Hansen's smoke-and-mirrors are
instantly defogged by basic analysis of the
so-called 'trend' he continues to find even in the
numbers. "NASA DATA"
The Data Interpretations are Hyped
If you'll pardon the expression — it doesn't
take a rocket scientist to recognize that after a
significant (and enigmatic) ascent in 1998, annual
averages tended to drop off before an increase in
2005 and a spike the following year. Available 5
year means (5YM) over 10 years tended to climb to an
apex in 2000, and then drop off until 2004.
Can this possibly represent a harbinger of
boundless warming, as preached before and still by
the minister of the eco-apocalypse?
Take a look at the revised 1930 through 1950
data, and you'll find not only 4 of the 10 hottest
years since 1880 occurring in the 1930s, but a 5YM
'trend' similar to that building today to boot.
You'll also notice a 2nd zenith is reached in 1940,
followed by a gradual drop to below 1930 levels by
So any alarmist argument that we've been
getting consistently hotter over the past decade
would not only ring disingenuous, it would be of no
empirical value whatsoever. And that's exactly why
the subterfuge potential of the hottest ever years
clocking in during that time is so essential to
their misbegotten crusade.
Now consider that atmospheric CO2
reportedly rose from 284 ppm in pre-industrial
1832 to only 300 ppm by 1911; then remained below
320 ppm until rising precipitously from 1960 to
today's level of over 380 ppm. And yet — there is
nothing even remotely analogous in the temperature
figures for those same periods. To the contrary, 60%
of post-industrial CO2 ascension has taken place
since 1960 that's 20 years after the last
decade with warming patterns similar to the present
one. Furthermore, notice that over half of the 15
hottest years took place before 1960 and those 15
are actually spread out over not one but rather
seven decades. That's some trend, my friend.
So then, even if NASA�s figures were
rock-solid, they simply don't advance AGW arguments
any more than they do those for, say, cycles of the
sun. We are, after all, in the midst of a period of
elevated solar activity scientists refer to as
the 'modern maximum.'
And yet, we're to accept that hyped
projections fueled by deliberate misinterpretation
of data are not threatened when such data lose a
good portion of their 'hottest years ever'
In the words of Reid A. Bryson, the father of
modern scientific climatology, what 'a bunch of
And the Misinterpreted Data are
But there's a deeper problem at play here.
Frankly, until GISS comes clean, who's buying any of
their numbers anyway?
Truth be told — even prior to Steve McIntyre's
correction of Hansen's algorithms, the data from
USHCN weather stations had been suspect. Both faulty
collection methods (e.g.
environmental issues of absurdly located
sensors) and the proprietary nature of the software
which purportedly 'fixed' these environmental
irregularities had been openly challenged.
These 'fudge factors,' which remain
unpublished, required McIntyre's
reverse-engineering in order to surface their
faults. As the scientist blogger wrote in a
must-read article at ace weather-station sleuth
Anthony Watts’ site (climateaudit was still
recovering from what were likely eco-maniac DDOS
"" the adjustment methods are not techniques
that can be looked up in statistical literature,
where their properties and biases might be
discerned. They are rather ad hoc and local
techniques that may or may not be equal to the
task of 'fixing' the bad data.""
But it was not only the disproved
'adjustments' to corrupt input data, but also the
shady manner by which GISS revised that information
which warrant our concern. Realizing how the error
reported by McIntyre impacted upon individual
weather stations, they stealthily updated not only
the local station data, but also the oft-cited US
Temperature Data, particularly post-1999. With
virtually no fanfare, estimates for 2000 through
2005 were lowered by about 0.15 deg C, and 2006 by
0.10 deg C � measures McIntyre suggests still fall
So what we have is a 'scientific' data-base
compiled and maintained by an institute conducted by
a true AGW ideologue that uses undisclosed and
flawed algorithms to offset admittedly spurious
input data. That same organization failed to alert
data-base clients (or anyone else to my knowledge)
that significant modifications were made to theory
and policy-critical data
Consequently, until such time that a
satisfactory non-disclosure explanation is proffered
and problem station data are resolved entirely at
their source or, at the very least
interpretive source-code is published, how can GISS
station data and their fruits be regarded as
anything but suspect — if not outright poisoned?

HAS THE POLE SHIFTED?
WHAT IS THE MAYAN CONNECTION?
9-15-07 - I've been tracking the equinox sunrises for 10 years here
in California. Each year the sun rose exactly in the center of two
rows of trees in our almond orchard. In 2007, I noticed that the sunrise
didn't arrive at that center point until 3 days 'after' the calendar said
that Spring started.
That pretty much shook me up. I realized that next year is a leap
year and all of a sudden we are adding another day to the year, so that
could possibly take up one of those days. But what about the other
two days? Are the calendar makers just lazy and plug in the word
'Spring' every year on the 21st? I know they don't. I've seen the word
'Spring' on the calendar on numbered days all the way from the 20th to the
22nd over time.
I then watched the sunrises for the summer solstice, which I had never
done before, but I noticed that the sun was coming in my north windows of
the house which I couldn't ever remember before. I marked the sunrises for
a week on my east window and almost ran out of window before they stopped
moving north. I'm not washing that window, so I will know next year
how the sunrises compare to this year.
I am now watching the sunrises for Fall equinox and marking it again
on the window - and if the calendar is correct, the sun should rise in the
exact center between the two rows of trees in the orchard. At this point,
it doesn't look like its going to make it there.
As of September 19th, the sunrise shows that the Fall
equinox began today. It's not supposed to be there until the 24th of
September according to the calendar.
|9-14-07 - DREAM - In this dream, I was at my Father's lake cottage
with my sister. We went over to the resort where there was a dance-hall.
A man was sitting at a desk and teaching square dancers how to do a 'new'
movement that had never been done before by these dancers. He told
them to hook their left arms into each other in a circle and then dance
backwards in a counter-clockwise motion.
Meanwhile - three couple lay on
the floor (off the dance floor) and I noticed that the women were wearing

I then went back to the cabin and went on the internet where I started
studying alternative health protocols that I was going to teach in
Milwaukee once I got back home.
When I finished that, I went out to the driveway and since my husband
hadn't come to the cabin, I was going to drive home in my sister's car.
My sister seemed over anxious to have me leave and go home and she made
me promise not to take Highway 41 home which would be fastest, but a main
freeway with a lot of traffic, but she made me promise to turn left at
Germantown and take Highway 45
which was a narrower and slower, but safer.
I told her I wasn't ready to go home yet, but I was just getting ready.
I pulled out a map then and the map was only of Northern Canada that
showed the north pole. The north pole had shifted south into Hudson Bay
right near the northern edge of Canada.
Here is a map of the magnetic North Pole and the Path of

very pale yellow and next to it where the letters FOIA which was

Later - while meditating on the sun on the sofa in the afternoon,
I saw five Mayan words to the right of it, along with the word
tsunami. Right after that I saw the word 'tsunami' again. That
doesn't seem to make any sense to me, but we'll see what happens.
In a dream following the vision, I was going across the
street to a school, and I forgot to take the mail with me.
Inside the school was a set of stairways like the school
was built around the Temple of Palenque.
I got to the top of the steps and was standing on the
top platform and I wanted to go down the center stairs, but it was too
steep for me, so I went down a stairway on the right side that wasn't
quite so steep and it had a green iron hand railing on the right side.
(There was a matching stairway on the left)
I got down to the front door and stood at the curb, waiting
to cross the street, but there was a big fire truck parked at the curb on
the other side of the street. A little girl came running out of the
house across the street and just then two more fire trucks came screaming
down the street with their horns blowing and stopped behind the other fire
9-16-07 - DREAM - I was in a school made of stone.
The students were all adults.
There was a special group of stones set in a pillar-like pattern. Some of
these stones were dated Dec. 7 and some were dated Dec. 9.
There were deep grooves carved into
these stones within and when something was activated, an energy would
spiral through these stones and great upheavals would occur.
We weren't told in advance when this energy would begin
and that we shouldn't mess with these stones unless we knew all about the
We were in awe of what
the teacher said, but just then the energy started and it was too late to
learn about the energy. The stones were already starting to split.
9-16-07 - VISION 2 - I was standing in an area of buildings made of stone.
The ground began to tremble and shake and loose stones began to fall off
the buildings more and more and littered the ground in every direction.
VISION 2 - I was standing in front of a tall pillar made
of dark stone. At the top of the pillar kneeled a young blonde man,
wearing a bright yellow long-sleeved shirt and bright green pants.
I heard a voice say, "He's not going to stop the stones
from falling down!"

Sun key to Mayan misery?
By BBC News - Ivan Noble
The ancient Mayans may have had good reason for their
fascination with the heavens, new research by climate
It seems that the Mayan
homeland in central America was plagued by droughts
which appear to have followed a cycle determined by the
Researchers at the University of Florida, US,
analyzed sediments from a lake on the Yucatan Peninsula
in Mexico and found a pattern of drought repeating every
The pattern matches a cycle of brightening and
dimming in the Sun.
"It looks like changes in the Sun's energy output are
having a direct effect on the climate of the Yucatan and
causing the recurrence of drought, which is in turn
influencing the Maya evolution," said David Hodell, lead
author of the study.
In 1993, Professor Hodell and his colleagues
extracted a sediment sample from Lake Chichancanab in
northern Yucatan documenting 9,000 years of climate
They found that the driest period of the current era
was from AD 800 to 1000, coinciding with the collapse of
the classic Mayan civilization in the 9th Century.
This time they went back to the lake and found data
that backed up their findings and pointed to other
periods of drought coinciding with other declines in
Mayan building activity.
They found evidence for major dry periods between 475
and 250 BC, and AD 125 and 210, which, they believe,
coincides with the abandonment of pre-classic Mayan
sites in the Mayan Lowlands.
The evidence is by no means conclusive, but, as
Professor Hodell explained to the journal Science: "It's
hard for me to believe that's just a coincidence.
"I think drought
did play an important role, but I'm sure there were
other factors, such as increasing population,
degradation of the land, and socio-political change,
"Civilization collapse has got to be complex," he
Archaeologists specializing in Mayan history have
described the climate evidence as compelling, but agree
with Professor Hodell that it is not sufficient by
itself to explain the Mayan collapse.
But other climate researchers using tree ring dating
(dendrochronology) have also found evidence of a
bicentennial drought cycle in step with the variation of

Re: the suns magnetic field
has doubled, and the chandlers wobble has stopped!
The OP is correct, the Chandler wobble has stopped. And this event
which has developed in the past couple months, could have dire
consequences for the history of mankind.
As the Earth spins about it's axis, it has a slight wobble, like a
spinning top. This is the Chandler wobble. The Chandler wobble when
plotted on a graph, normally makes a regular circular pattern. But it
hasn't been doing that since early December of last year. This
dramatic change in the direction of the Chandler wobble has been
called the biggest anomaly in the history of recording the Chandler
wobble, which goes back over 100 years. Here's the plot for the past 3
years which shows the current shift.
The course of the Earths spin axis is off!! When will it be correcting
itself? Will it correct itself? We will have to wait and see in the
months to come. But if it doesn't, the biggest calamity in human
history will be upon us.

The Sunspot Enigma: The Sun is “Dead”—What Does it Mean for Earth?
Dark spots, some as large as 50,000 miles in diameter, typically move
across the surface of the sun, contracting and expanding as they go. These
strange and powerful phenomena are known as sunspots, but now they are all
gone. Not even solar physicists know why it’s happening and what this odd
solar silence might be indicating for our future.
Although periods of inactivity are normal for the sun, this current period
has gone on much longer than usual and scientists are starting to worry—at
least a little bit. Recently 100 scientists from Europe, Asia, Latin
America, Africa and North America gathered to discuss the issue at an
international solar conference at Montana State University. Today's sun is
as inactive as it was two years ago, and solar physicists don’t have a
clue as to why.
"It continues to be dead," said Saku Tsuneta with the National
Astronomical Observatory of Japan, program manager for the Hinode solar
mission, noting that it is at least a little bit worrisome for scientists.
Dana Longcope, a solar physicist at MSU, said the sun usually operates on
an 11-year cycle with maximum activity occurring in the middle of the
cycle. The last cycle reached its peak in 2001 and is believed to be just
ending now, Longcope said. The next cycle is just beginning and is
expected to reach its peak sometime around 2012. But so far nothing is
"It's a dead face," Tsuneta said of the sun's appearance.
Tsuneta said solar physicists aren't weather forecasters and they can't
predict the future. They do have the ability to observe, however, and they
have observed a longer-than-normal period of solar inactivity. In the
past, they observed that the sun once went 50 years without producing
sunspots. That period coincided with a little ice age on Earth that lasted
from 1650 to 1700. Coincidence? Some scientists say it was, but many worry
that it wasn’t.
Geophysicist Phil Chapman, the first Australian to become an astronaut
with NASA, said pictures from the US Solar and Heliospheric Observatory
also show that there are currently no spots on the sun. He also noted that
the world cooled quickly between January last year and January this year,
by about 0.7C.
"This is the fastest temperature change in the instrumental record, and it
puts us back to where we were in 1930," Dr Chapman noted in The Australian
If the world does face another mini Ice Age, it could come without
warning. Evidence for abrupt climate change is readily found in ice cores
taken from Greenland and Antarctica. One of the best known examples of
such an event is the Younger Dryas cooling, which occurred about 12,000
years ago, named after the arctic wildflower found in northern European
sediments. This event began and ended rather abruptly, and for its entire
1000 year duration the North Atlantic region was about 5°C colder. Could
something like this happen again? There’s no way to tell, and because the
changes can happen all within one decade—we might not even see it coming.
The Younger Dryas occurred at a time when orbital forcing should have
continued to drive climate to the present warm state. The unexplained
phenomenon has been the topic of much intense scientific debate, as well
as other millennial scale events.
Now this 11-year low in Sunspot activity has raised fears among a small
but growing number of scientists that rather than getting warmer, the
Earth could possibly be about to return to another cooling period. The
idea is especially intriguing considering that most of the world is in
preparation for global warming.
Canadian scientist Kenneth Tapping of the National Research Council has
also noted that solar activity has entered into an unusually inactive
phase, but what that means—if anything—is still anyone’s guess. Another
solar scientist, Oleg Sorokhtin, a fellow of the Russian Academy of
Natural Sciences, however, is certain that it’s an indication of a coming
Sorokhtin believes that a lack of sunspots does indicate a coming cooling
period based on certain past trends and early records. In fact, he calls
manmade climate change "a drop in the bucket" compared to the fierce and
abrupt cold that can potentially be brought on by inactive solar phases.
Sorokhtin’s advice: "Stock up on fur coats"…just in case.
