      I disagree. The double dymino theory is flawed in that it does not have
      a biological aspect.

      The problem with this idea is that the earth's EMF flips from time to
      time.

      Gaia would explain this in terms of strike activity causing amplification
      going the other way depending on biological conditions.

      This is cool. BUT in relation to the earth's EMF and the 'SE' the solar
      wind is VERY small as a current. What is more important is the
      relationship between convection and charge separation and the cirrus
      sorting that does occur from the solar pulse. What this relationship is
      and how the biosphere modulates these currents eventually determines the
      earth's EMF.

        WOODS HOLE, Massachusetts, February 26, 2003 (ENS) - New research
        suggests that warming oceans could cause "intense eruptions" of methane
        from the sea floor, leading to "catastrophic" global warming.
        Scientists have found new evidence indicating that during periods of
        rapid climate warming, methane gas has been released from the seafloor in
        intense eruptions. In a study published in the current issue of the
        journal "Science," Kai-Uwe Hinrichs and colleagues Laura Hmelo and Sean
        Sylva of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) provide a direct
        link between methane reservoirs in coastal marine sediments and the
        global carbon cycle, an indicator of global warming and cooling.

        Molecular fossils from methane consuming bacteria found in sediments in
        the Santa Barbara Basin off California deposited during the last glacial
        period - 70,000 to 12,000 years ago - indicate that large quantities of
        methane were emitted from the seafloor during warmer phases of the last
        ice age. Methane, one of the major greenhouse gases, is stored on the
        seafloor as an ice like solid known as methane hydrate.

        Previous evidence for such massive eruptions was based on isotopic
        properties of calcite shells of foraminifera, microscopic marine animals
        called forams. Because a variety of factors could lead to very similar
        signals in their shells, that evidence has remained controversial.

        The preserved molecular remnants found by the WHOI team result from
        bacteria that fed exclusively on methane and indicate that large
        quantities of this powerful greenhouse gas were present in coastal waters
        off California. The team studied samples that were deposited between
        44,000 and 37,000 years ago.

        "For the first time, we are able to clearly establish a connection
        between distinct isotopic depletions in forams and high concentrations of
        methane in the fossil record," said Hinrichs, an assistant scientist in
        the Institution's Geology and Geophysics Department.

        "The large amounts of methane presumably released during one event about
        44,000 years ago suggest a mechanism different from those underlying the
        emissions at warmer periods, i.e. slow decomposition of methane hydrate
        triggered by warming of bottom waters," Hinrichs continued. "The sudden
        release of these enormous quantities of methane was probably caused by
        landslides and melting of the methane hydrate."

        Since there was already indirect evidence of methane eruptions in the
        Santa Barbara Basin area, Hinrichs and colleagues looked for fossil
        remnants of bacteria that would have flourished only under high
        concentrations of methane. In a 44,000 year old sediment sample, a
        distinct type of biomarker representing bacterial communities that
        oxidize methane in the absence of oxygen provided evidence for an abrupt,
        catastrophic release of methane, presumably trapped as hydrate below the
        sea floor.

        The WHOI team's data, from sediment cores taken by the Ocean Drilling
        Program off southern California, show that substantial quantities of
        methane were released at least several times during the past 60,000
        years, leading to periodic fluctuations in the levels of methane in deep
        waters in the Santa Barbara Basin.

        The researchers say increased bottom water temperatures could mobilize or
        release large amounts of methane hydrate in shallow waters. According to
        some current estimates, there are about 10,000 billion tons of methane
        stored beneath the ocean and on continents.

        In comparison, the contribution of humans to the atmosphere's inventory
        of greenhouse gases by fossil fuel burning amounts to about 200 billion
        tons of carbon in the form of carbon dioxide. If even a small portion of
        the stored methane were to escape into the atmosphere, the resulting
        greenhouse warming would be catastrophic.

        "It was a surprise to find this sort of evidence," said Hinrichs, who was
        looking for evidence indicating mechanisms other than methane. "Although
        this research tells us something about the amount of methane consumed by
        bacteria in the ocean, it doesn't tell us anything about methane
        emissions into the atmosphere because neither forams nor methane
        biomarkers record the portion of methane that escaped out of the ocean."

        "But one thing is for sure," he said, "our results clearly show that
        relatively minor environmental changes can have a major impact on
        sensitive coastal regions with yet unknown consequences for climate and
        biota."

        Hinrichs plans to look for similar evidence elsewhere to determine
        whether this process, as a driver of climate variation, happened
        simultaneously at other locations around the world. This work, he said,
        is just the beginning of better understanding of the role of methane in
        the carbon cycle and ultimately on climate on geologic time scales.

        "We have a very poor understanding of the biogeochemical mechanisms that
        control production, destruction and accumulation of methane in sediments
        underlying the ocean," Hinrichs said. "We need to understand the big
        picture of what drives methane and the carbon cycle and the actual impact
        of methane emissions from hydrates on climate."

        Comment:

        In the late 1990s when I first started researching climate a runnaway
        methane hydrate meltdown was one of the biggest concerns. In April 2000
        Clinton signed the methane hydrate research bill--which passed Congress
        without a vote in opposition--giving 5 million a year in research over
        the next 10 years. In contrast, the Japanese spend 50 million in
        research. Then I spoke frequently with Dendy Sloan, from the Colorado
        School of Mines, about phase change energies and then later about the EMF
        consequences of the hydrates. One of the key things that should be
        understood is that methane in the ocean is like pure food to many
        creatures there--and is consumed rapidly. Further, the methane is DEEP in
        the ocean and dissolves almost immediately. The best research is on the
        McKenzie River delta along the near shore ocean, where coring over 1,000
        meters under the ocean surface have revealed microbrial communities! As
        it turns out, the mass of the biosphere under the surface of the ocean
        rivals the microbrial biosphere on the terresphere. So when humans farm
        the land and add chemicals and fertilizers and so forth and it runs off--
        it goes to an equally large biosphere! At this time it is too energy
        costly and costly to harvest the hydrates--and all climate concerns are
        of the CO2 as a GHG concern--which is flat wrong.

        The key feature here relative to this research and a potential for
        climate change is the mobility and containment of conductity altering
        materials by the biosphere. Hydrates are EMF insulating. Think--rubber.
        Contained biology is conductive--think wire. Water and methane quickly
        turns to dissolved methane and salt water in the deeps of the oceans--
        which are conductive. The impact on large scale EMF of large scale
        changes brought on by massive FEILDS of hydrates would be significant to
        these waves and how they move from ionosphere to cloud to ocean/sea and
        back up.

        These are the electrical properties that will QUICKLY alter climate.
        Witness the fires and drought in the SW and the Colorado River and Sea of
        Cortez/Gulf of California.

        This is what is the concern in the SOC/GOC--where there are hydrates,
        when we build a Hoover dam (that helps cause a Dust Bowl) or don't let
        any biological material flow down it under CAP and Mexican water usage of
        the Colorado River on their side of the border. The resulting fair
        weather over the GOC and the drought, fires in the SW should be no
        surprise. Equally of no surprise is once upwellings occur that the
        biological activity would be intense and storms like those in Arizona--
        the snows there, should occur like they are at this time.

        Read--extremes (drought and precip events) with hydrate melting events
        BUT as long as the hydrate fields are there--MODULATION by them. IOW
        extremes of MODULATION. Not the way chaos idiots

        look at the problem. Interestingly, at the end of the Wisconsonian--as it
        was peaking 20,000 years ago BP, west of Italy there were hydrate fields
        that unformed as the oceans were at a low point. 10,000 years later very
        powerful volcano erupted in the region, and the glacial ended and 14,000
        years later the Sahara turned to dust. What did those hydrate fields mean
        to climate in the region? I suspect MUCH. Current directions and
        induction values, EMF insulation, EMF conductivities--all would mean more
        precipatation in the region.

        The Mediterranean is now the perhaps strongest fair weather water body on
        earth, with the nearby central Africa the most struck region on earth. If
        anyone wants a graph of worldwide strikes that show this--I have a link I
        could look up.

        It's all electrical and biological, baby.

            We disagree in this, Walter. The Earth's magnetic field is generated
            from within, not created from the outside.

            Now here, you have something. The Earth's magnetic field is
            definitely influenced by the sun. No doubt about that.\

            > The equator turning motion on the Sun is East to West, meaning that the
            > major electric flow direction is from its north to South.

            Whoops! You got that one backwards. The Earth's magnetic field lines
            emerge at the south pole and re-enter at the north pole, which means
            that the north pole is actually the South pole. Confused yet?
            Ok lets try again. In my understanding the Sun's spots appear to us
            to be twisting from East to West as we look at it. According to the
            right hand rule its rotation turning would be caused by a current flowing
            from its North to its South. This current when it flows out its South
            comes out and around in an eddy current through its planets and back to
            the Sun. As it comes up through the Earth it twists our rotation in
            (according the right hand rule) in a West to East rotation. All of the
            meteorites that land on the South pole that come from space come there
            because of this flow. The clarity of the air in this area is clear
            because this Solar Electrojet current charges all particles and takes
            them down to the ice. The circumpolar current around the South pole is
            in the direction of the same twist of the earth, West to East. It is
            going that direction because the SE is spinning it in that direction.
            Now if you insist that the magnetic field lines are coming out of the
            South pole and going around to the North, then it must be induced to do
            so because of Solar Electrojet going from the South to the North. In my
            way of thinking the currents that drive our compasses are basically
            surface flow of solar electrojet, which hasn't been generated by the
            Earth at all, but are coming in from the Sun and flowing over the surface
            of the earth as well as up through the center, causing its great stirring
            and heating. In order to prove this point we will have to drill a hole in
            the center of the South pole and see which way current flows in it. If
            the current flows into the South pole as well as up towards the North
            over the surface of the earth than it is SE. If the current flows up out
            of and around the earth Northerly, then it is generated by the earth and
            is doing what you say. This would not make sense for it would be turning
            the earth in the opposite direction according to the right hand rule. If
            you put your right thumb up into the South pole indicating the direction
            of the direct current flow that is inducing the secondary field twist in
            the right hand direction and is turning the earth from West to East. (as
            it does). If the magnetic flow which is according to my thinking
            generated by the SE is going in that direction down the center, then it
            is Not causing the earth to rotate because of its flow, because it would
            be turning the earth the other direction. The same direction that the Sun
            turns. One other proof of the SE coming in and up through the South, is
            the shape of the ozone hole itself.. It is shaped by the SE's passage by
            the South Ice cap, for it goes into the earth around the ice cap and into
            the earth. Its path through the Ozone hole is guided by its direction of
            path down and around the ice cap shape. Too bad the bays in the South ice
            pole that were there a few years ago are not still there, for they would
            show distinct shape in the ozone hole that would be unmistakable. As it
            is I think you can still see the shape. Walter
            > CMEs are not the SE, but

            Yes, that is correct. Specifically they are a blast of plasma from
            the sun's corona, as opposed to the solar wind, which originated from
            lower down beneath the corona.

            I'm not quite sure what you're referring to. There is such a thing as
            an interstellar wind, believe it or not. It is a very tenuous, but
            high speed flow of particles that is generated by supernova
            explosions. It permeates the entire galaxy. Where our sun's solar
            wind is finally stopped by the interstellar wind is known as the
            heliopause. With a little luck, Voyager 1 and 2 may survive long
            enough to reach that point and report back their findings. The
            heliopause is considered the true boundary of interstellar space.
            Excactly where the heliopause is isn't really known. In fact, it's
            probably somewhat dynamic, moving in and out with the sunspot cycles.
