      Above is another link to a NASA pic that shows just how powerful the
      Gaia consequences to hydrology changes are. What the picture shows is
      a dust storm off the West African coast.

      In the late 1990s, the West Africans completed a series of
      hydroelectric dams along their rivers that flow into the N. Atlantic
      near the equator. The biological implications are profound, and hence
      so are the climate implications. What the dams do is DELAY WHEN
      sedimentation (read bio nutrients) and flow (changing upwelling, and
      again, bio nutrients) impact the microbrial biosphere in the near
      shore oceans off the coast there. Here, in the spring, instead of
      rain to go with the signal noise ratios (read about that elsewhere,
      or ask me and I will expound it) and thermo constrasts of changing
      seasons, there is dust. Dust is a huge sign of Gaia poor health,
      simply because in good EMF conditions dust will be drawn into
      convective regions electrically. That is why during the glacials
      there is more dust.

      Now, the dams are a source of a DEFECT in a living earth feedback
      loop. It is from here that a cost benefit analysis should take place,
      in addition to the cost benefit analysis of flood control and
      generated electricity that goes with the construction of a dam. In
      this case it "shifts" the season. Understand with the fair weather
      region of the Mediterranean, this area in its proximaty is THE most
      struck in the world--and the place of tropical storm genesis. The
      ITCZ is completely an electrical animal--and the nuances of how waves
      flow off West Africa are particularly sensitive to Gaia changes
      there.

      The statistics back me up completely. Dr. Gray has noted with the
      timing of the dams a change and increase in storms that was so
      significant, and not picked up by his rainfall factoring to such a
      degree he threw out his factors!!!! He blamed it on the West African
      reporting! (He is more conservative than Barry Goldwater and I can
      even see him under his breath blaming the ('N' word) for the "bad
      data". But the data on rainfall was hardly to blame. What WAS
      occurring is the dams have delayed sedimentation and flow and changed
      WHEN, electrically, conditions peak for Cape Verde waves--toward
      later in the season when point EMFs conditions are much more likely
      to occur.

      The picture above is merely consistant with a SHIFTED season, where
      during the spring SSTs should have been warmed by more cirrus
      sustained biologically and electrically, and the dust removed from
      the air by convection, and more rain should fall. But it isn't
      because of the dams. This bodes for grave danger LATER in the year
      when the waves come off Africa and form tropical storms.
      what happened during the Dust Bowl to the delta? To the Rio? Why
      would climate follow changes to the river systems?

      What about what flows into the GOM impacts the microbrial biosphere
      there?

      How does microbrial activity impact conductivity--large scale ion
      movements?

      What is the difference electrochemically, between life cummulating
      chemistry and chemistry diffusing broadly in the GOM w/out that life?
      What specifically about microbrial activity near the surface--where
      SSTs are warmest and therefore conductivity highest (the warmer the
      salt water, the better it conducts)?

      How by methane hydrates? The GOM is full of them. What does
      microbrial activity do to hydrates there? How does the fact that
      methane hydrates are ELECTRICALLY insulating play in all of this?
