I just wish I could give you years of biological education in a
paragraph or two, but I would have to disagree again with your
characterization. Understand this isn't about hot and cold but about
MODULATED hot and cold. IOWs if I put you in a heated room your body
temperature stays at 98.6 degrees--and you sweat. But if you catch a
cold your body temperature rises.
What the cosmic rays would do is increase the protons to ground and
how the ocean terresphere EMF balance is modulated by the biosphere.
Once an area is frozen the hydrology ends and so do river feedbacks.
IOWs what we are talking about is the RISK of putting a neo glacier
on and how long it takes for the sun to melt it back without
precipitation replacing it.
This is why we see storms w/ the elevated PROTON wind. But that
doesn't mean that these storms are not modulated by the biosphere and
the EMF control it exerts . . .
So it again comes back to feedback loops and DEFECTS in them by a
fossil fuel subsidized culture--or a culture that messes w/ its
hydrology, and therefore the modulating biosphere in the deltas of
this hydrology . . .
