Thank you Cassini. You've been a wonderful probe.

 

Interdisciplinary studies Reveal Relationship between Solar Activity And Climate Change

One of the major achievements by the multidisciplinary team is that a robust relationship between solar wind speed and North Atlantic Oscillation was found.

In other parts of this twisted universe it seems bill nye the mechanical engineering guy got a new hat to wear along with the one calling him the un chief climatologist of which he has zero training or schooling. Now he is a gender specialist jumping on the you are what you feel you are crowd.

 

This is pretty cringe worthy so be warned before you clicky.

Before Bill Nye was Mr. Climatologist he was a Seattle super hero.

 

 

I took your advice and had Digital Storm build me a computer with an i5-7600K 3.8ghz. Took the money I saved on the CPU and got a 960GB SSD. Also got a PNY 1080ti Founders Edition. That was the only option for a 1080ti card.

Ya! That was not a good sight.

 

I'm not seeing a huge upgrade in video quality but that SSD is great. The EVGA 980ti in my other computer went bad. It was still under warranty so I sent it in for a replacement and now I have an EVGA 1080 FTW card sitting on the shelf. :D

Evidence for solar forcing of sea-surface temperature on the North Icelandic Shelf during the late Holocene

A  positive  and  significant  correlation  between  our  SST record from the North Icelandic Shelf and inferred insolation, together with modeling experiments, supports the hypothesis that solar forcing is an important constituent of natural climate variability in the northern North Atlantic region.

Reinforcing the double dynamo model with solar-terrestrial activity in the past three millennia

In this paper we reproduce the summary curve of solar activity for the last 3000 years that shows a remarkable resemblance to the sunspot and terrestrial activity reported in the past millennia.  These include the most significant grand minima:  Maunder Minimum (1645-1715),  Wolf minimum (1280-1350 AD), Oort minimum (1040-1080 AD), Homer minimum (800-900 BC), also pointing to the grand maxima:  the medieval warm period (900-1200), the Roman warm period (400-10 BC) and so on. We also verify the extrapolated summary curve,  as the solar activity curve, by available pre-telescope observations of large sunspots in 14 century, by increase of the terrestrial temperature and by the intense terrestrial auroras seen in 14-16 centuries and by the batterfly diagrams simulated and observed for Maunder Minimum. We predict the upcoming Modern grand minimum in 2020-2055, which will have the solar activity slightly higher and its duration twice shorter than in Maunder minimum of the 17 century.

Multiverse: have astronomers found evidence of parallel universes?

UAH Shooting Investigation Update

For the last 25 years our science has been viewed as standing in the way of efforts to institute a carbon tax or otherwise reduce carbon dioxide emissions. The amount of money involved in such changes in energy policy easily run into the hundreds of billions of dollars… more likely trillions. When I was at NASA, my boss was personally told by Al Gore that Gore blamed our satellite temperature dataset for the failure of carbon tax legislation to pass. So why am I not surprised that our building was shot up? Because people have been killed for much less reason than hundreds of billions of dollars.
