I could not disagree with your analysis. If I am reading you
correctly..Electrical changes bring along MJO changes...than climate
I know how you feel about the biological feedbacks of the oceans by
way of gases etc...on storms...ENSO ...many others...
But where does the space weather effect go ....in the assembly line?
Does it change the biological feedback system altogether or does it
enhance the cards that are already dealt?
