This thread starts with a Scientific American report, that is well
supported science. What it basically shows is that the earth's EMF
has been shrinking about 10% over the past 150 years, and about 8 %.
More specifically, the north magnetic pole of the earth EMF, which
is located over Hudson Bay, has shrunk. Especially over the earth's
mid-section, and to the Pacific side of the earth, has the field
decreased its intensity.
Which brings us directly to the story of signal noise.
Understand some basics. The sun not only shines upon the earth its
powerful radiative forces, energies, but also periodically spits out
ELICTRICAL energies. These energies, as it turns out, are small
currents in relation to even everyday electrical experiance, and
downright miniscule in relation to strikes from thunderstorms. So,
how could such a small current matter?
It turns out, that like a bar magnet, the earth has a magnetic field
that is more powerful on its ends. Try an experiment to remind
yourself of how bar magnets behave. Turn your magnets on your fridge
sideways and see how sticky the are. That is because there are
patterns of force in a magnetic field, and an isobar, which
describes that pattern, become spread out and not in an attractive
position on the side. Therefore, when the sun spits out electrical
energies, they are only attracted to the closed isobars of the
magnetic poles. And as it happens, these regions where the isobars
are closed--these are the regions where the there isn't a lot of
convection . . . up to this time, anyway. Therefore, the currents
that come from space, though small, are directed to a place where
they matter. This becomes a "signal".
If that signal is subject to being fedback and amplified by cirrus
behavior, as I contend, then that signal will balance against the
EMFs generated randomly by convection, and the storms that are
created by the pattern of the solar pulses of EMF will vary
according to signal and noise of the fields involved.
The earth EMF, following the rules of a double dymino, will carry a
momentum of past currents that induct to create and sustain the
field, so the earth EMF will take on the longer term features of a
signal noise ratio.
Think of it this way. Along the isobar path that is where there is
an alternating current that is amplified. There is an example of
power theft where a theif will hang up a parallel wire to the power
companies, and "steal" the power--what is happening is the current
creates a moving EMF and the wire next to it will then convert that
moving EMF to an alternating current in the second wire. Likewise,
the earth will convert that amplification of the space signal, as
next to this field, like a parallel conductor, and this powers the
earth's EMF! But, as this induction is removed from the close
isobars of the poles of the earth EMF, then the power to inflence
the earth EMF is decreased.
This has been a description of the EMF from above. But where the
oceans warm enough, eventually they themselves become so conductive
that in relation to the amplified signal they become inducting
bodies themselves, and depending on the direction of current, will
define regions of convection like the ITCZ or dry regions. Of
course, over areas where there is no oceans, the signal noise issues
become more interesting in relation to the earth EMF.
So some questions come to mind. In the context of human activity and
increases of CO2 as an ELECTRICAL agent, the oceans have warmed
about 1 degree over the past 100 years to match the decrease in the
earth's EMF. Now, if the oceans are warmer, this will mean that in
the most convective areas, there will be more of a random input or
noise in relation to or opposing the organized signal of the solar
winds . . . BUT there will be more of an ability to have tropical
impedance electrical features, like current direction and induction,
play a stronger role in the way storms behave. As gaia happens to be
a land and ocean shore based mechanism, excepting the microbrial
surface like conductivities changes that occur, for instance, with
the upwelling and microbrial conductivity changes w/ ENSO.
Therefore, an increase in the biosphere from more CO2 from fossil
fuels is going to have an impact on the hydrology in a different
way, depending on the hemesphere, north or south, just based on the
fact that more land is located in the Northern Hemisphere. But that
is not the only electrical regional difference. The Southern
Hemisphere contains the circumpolar, and a warming of the earth's
oceans will increase the impedence, or the induction forces, against
cirrus formation, as the warmer waters will cause greater induction
there against cirrus, but in the northern hemisphere decreases in
cirrus activities will be offset by increases, depending only on the
current directions. Where and how EMF changes occur will depend on
the salinity and temperatures changes of the ocean discussed, and
the North Atlantic and Medeterranean are already relatively saline
and warm compared to the more diluted and cold Pacific.
At the end of the day, the decrease in a signal noise ratio and a
corresponding reduction in expression of an earth EMF will mean a
corresponding reduction in severe weather potential in the US, due
to the close proximaty of the Hudson Bay to the areas of activity,
BUT, that doesn't mean that there isn't a dramatic electrical change
afoot that will have dramatic and non-linear impact on earth climate.
The proximaty of deserts to the Tornado Alley is interesting to me,
There is, on the one hand, the organization brought on by the earth
EMF in a wave of ions that culminates in a large area of ORGANIZED
convection, BUT, additionally, pulses of EMF from the tropics will
bring on the point EMFs from short like electrical behaviors, that
result in the strong instabilities of severe weather. The sub
tropical jet can bring these instabilities, but are of a nature that
if the oceans are warmer, the defining currents can bring incredible
energies that dominate, electrically, a region so much as to cause
those areas nearby to have no electrical chance of forming a the
convection required for rain, excepting small seasonal possiblities.
Such is the character of the Southwest, but it is also a character
of a region with dominate fair weather and consistant voltages.
Seasonal movements bring sharp instabilities to the SW at the end of
the rainy season, that translate electrically to the tornado
alley . . .
