      The electrical induction causes electrons or a
      charge to go or not to the ocean surface. It makes the
      ocean like a giant charge plate of a capacitor. (Of
      course, the movement of the ionosphere also causes cirrus
      change--see <a href=http://www.ssiatty.com/climate/flaring.html target=new>http://www.ssiatty.com/climate/flaring.html</a> ). As
      water is poler, it can be moved by electrical fields. A
      good example is the experiment where you rub a balloon
      on you shirt to give it a static electricity charge
      and then hold it by slow running water from a
      faucet--the water stream will bend.<br><br>Cirrus clouds are
      tiny ice crystals, and while not poler like liquid
      water, can have charges and therefore can be moved.
      Cirrus, as you read from the Lindzen paper, form on the
      tops of storm clouds. Their shapes are often
      irregular, so we are not only talking about enhancing their
      lifespan but shape as well. A more flat shape would cause
      more even distribution of heat underneath them--and
      enhance their formation. Certainly, uplifting will
      maintain cirrus as well.<br><br>The lifespan of cirrus is
      related to how fast they evaporate. If warm moist air is
      underneath them, then this water rises and condenses and
      freezes and replaces the ice crystals lost to
      evaporation. As the cirrus CREATE conditions of warming and
      humidity, it presents something of a chicken egg issue.
      There is also issues of gravity and ice crystal size,
      as larger crystals fall down whereas smaller
      crystals are upheld in ambiant winds or updrafts. But even
      at 300-500 mb of pressure where the cirrus form, the
      gravity is decreased and the forces of electrical fields
      can have meaning. <br><br>Incidently, cirrus are
      studied in laboratory conditions by use of electric
      fields to suspend ice crystals!<br><br>All of this has a
      context of Lindzen's data--the inverse relation and the
      current direction in the tropical east Pac. The proof is
      in the pudding, so to speak.

        On Feb 28th, the Interplanetary Magnetic Field
        swung to a strong south-pointing orientation. That,
        coupled with an elevated solar wind speed and density,
        triggered a G-1 class geomagnetic storm. The result was
        some high latitude aurora. See this link for a
        photgraph of aurora observed over Quebec :
        <a href=http://www.spaceweather.com/aurora/images/01mar02/Moussette2.jpg target=new>http://www.spaceweather.com/aurora/images/01mar02/Moussette2.jpg</a> . As of right now, there are 3 sunspot regions,
        namely 9839, 9842, and 9845, that appear to be capable
        of producing M-class flares. Regions 9839 and 9842
        are close to rotating out of view over the western
        limb of the solar disk. Sunspot region 9845, however,
        is close to the sun's central meridian. A rather
        large coronal hole is also approaching the sun's
        central meridian, and coming into an Earth-pointing
        position. High speed colar wind gusts are likely around the
        first of next week.<br><br>The current solar and
