Some Confusion Regarding The Article: "The Sun Goes Haywire"
- View SourceSome Confusion Regarding The Article: "The Sun Goes Haywire"...11/14/03
by Mitch Battros (ECTV)
This article was published by a person named Tony Phillips. There are many
who believe he speaks for NASA or the Space
Weather Center. He "Does Not". This person is nothing more than an
independent journalist. He has shown to have a strict
conservative bias for what is now clearly defined as "old school". Tony
Phillips is one of those people who hold on to old
ideas regardless of new evidence to the contrary.
I have come up against this guy since 1999. He simply represents the "old
paradigm". He just cannot adjust to a rapidly
moving shift. I believe it scares him, and all those like him. I have a
whole chapter on this dynamic in my book "Solar
Rain". It is Chapter 9: "NASA, NOAA and Thing Called 'Peer Review' "
So what is a "paradigm". (Webster) It is a set of assumptions, concepts,
values, and practices that constitutes a way of
viewing reality for the community that shares them, especially in an
intellectual discipline. So what is a "paradigm shift"? When
assumptions, concepts, values, and practices are no longer useful or valid.
Tony Phillips has a website that looks like it belongs to Nasa, but it does
not. It is only his independent view of the world,
nothing more. Website: http://science.nasa.gov/ Sure it has Nasa markings,
it may even be so-called "sponsored" by Nasa,
but when you contact Nasa and question them, they make it perfectly clear
"He does not represent us (Nasa)".
It appears many people such as Tony Phillips, are grasping with both hands
what is familiar to them. Oh, I can imagine
today's time must be quite a threat to people like Tony, but nothing will
stop our evolution. I found it quite humorous to see
what he had written in this latest article.
Just like any journalist can do, including me, you can go out and find
someone who reflects your ideology. That is exactly
what Phillips did. He found David Hathaway, a solar physicist at NASA's
Marshall Space Flight Center. I'm sure David is a
great guy, be he does not speak for the scientific community, and
specifically those in the space weather field. This is simply
one physicist who has an "opinion". Nothing more, nothing less.
Here is what Dr. Hathaway has to say: "very few sunspots," says
Hathaway--and space weather near Earth was
mild. "Mild is just what we expect at this point in the 11-year solar
cycle," he explains. "The most recent maximum
was in 2001, and solar activity has been declining ever since."
Now that is interesting. Let me see if I can follow this. Dr. Hathaway, a
solar physicist whom was not made clear if he
specializes in 'space weather' says "everything is normal and fine". Then we
have Dr. Ernest Hindler, the leading authority
specifically in the "space weather" field, and who sat on the six person
panel when the decision was made on what the "Nasa
Prediction" would be for Cycle 23, say live on the air during one of our
interviews "We missed on Cycle 23. We were
wrong". We also made reference to something outside an 11 year cycle, which
I call a "mega cycle". Hmmm, now who are
we going to believe? Surely there can be no dissent in the scientific
Perhaps this is a hint to Tony Phillips 'watch the bouncing ball' interview
with someone he found agrees with his "opinion". A
few paragraphs down from the above statement reads...
Sunspots cause solar flares and, usually, the biggest flares come from the
biggest spots. The three giant sunspots
unleashed eleven X-class flares in only fourteen days--equaling the total
number observed during the previous twelve
months. "This was a big surprise," says Hathaway.
Sunspots => Solar Flares => Magnetic Field Shift => Shifting Ocean and Jet
Stream Currents => Extreme Weather and
Human Disruption (mitch battros)
The effects on Earth were many: Radio blackouts disrupted communications.
Solar protons penetrated Earth's upper
atmosphere, exposing astronauts and some air travelers to radiation doses
equal to a medical chest X-ray. Auroras
appeared all over the world--in Florida, Texas, Australia and many other
places where they are seldom seen.
Well folks, I guess "we are all just kind of guessing". But how could it be
any other way. Life is ever changing, thank
goodness, otherwise we probably would not survive. There are some who are
fearful of change. They will kick and scream,
and do everything they possibly can to hold onto a world they know. There
are others, who are simply aware of change, and
though at times will be confronted with confusion, and emotional upset, they
know it is simply part of the journey. So which
do you feel reflects your inner truth?
Remember: Follow your truth, not mine or anyone else. Seek and you shall
find. Find What? Your Truth!

Thursday November 13th - Nick Begich - author "Angels Don't Play This Haarp"
Since Begich and Manning exposed the
HAARP project a great deal has happened to change the face of society and
our future. In our interview we will explore
several new technology areas as well as their implications for personal
privacy, security and the state of democracy in the
beginning of the 21st century. Website: http://www.earthpulse.com/

Tuesday November 18th - Dr. Bruce Cornet - Yellowstone, Super-Volcano Dr.
Cornet is a Geologist, Paleobotanist,
Palynologist, and Oil Explorer. Post-doctorate research in geology and
paleobotany at the Lamont-Doherty Earth
Observatory, Columbia University (1989-1990). Author and coauthor of 21
refereed scientific papers and two books, all
on paleontological and/or geological subjects. 14 years experience in the
oil industry, and President of Geminoil, Inc., which
successfully explored for and found oil on the East Coast in Triassic age
rocks thought to be barren of hydrocarbons (just
before the collapse of the oil industry in the early 1980's).
Thursday November 20th - Chief Arvol Looking Horse (pending confirmation)
Tuesday November 25th - Greg Little - Gregory Little is an expert not only
on the lost civilizations of the Americas, he's a
leading Edgar Cayce researcher. Cayce left behind a vast trove of prophecies
obtained in a sleeping state. Many of these
prophecies have proved to be correct, and many of them center around the
rediscovery of ancient civilizations of great
power that have been totally forgotten. Greg edits the Association for
Research and Enlightenment's newsletter and is going
to take us on a magical journey into our own past--and our future--using a
combination of Edgar Cayce's prophecies and the
latest archaeological discoveries. Website:
