See you on the dark side of the moon
------- Cyclones - what causes them?
Tropical cyclones develop mainly when the seas reach a temperature of
about 28degC and this usually occurs when the Sun is over a
particular hemisphere and close to or past its solstice position of
that tropic, which will allow sufficient time for the Sun's rays to
heat the sea to that critical temperature.
The reason there are no cyclones off Brazil is probably due to the
very large volume of cold fresh water from the Amazon that keeps the
temperature of the adjacent oceans below that required for a cyclone
to form. Where conditions are warm enough for them to form, the
heating process will continue after the Moon has crossed the equator
and into the other hemisphere. The build-up of heat will be speeded
to that level during a Full moon phase and into the Last Quarter
because that is the time for the low atmospheric tide, both from the
Moon being a night moon and because the Moon is over the opposite
Also, if the Moon is at perigee, the atmospheric tide will be even
lower because of the greater gravitation effect from the Moon in that
period. Occasionally the New moon will also cause a TC to form, due
in part to the increased gravitational pull occurring and especially
if the Moon is at or near to crossing the equator at this time.
2001/2: Cyclone "DINA" appeared on 25th of January, which was 4 days
after Last Q.
"CHRIS"; formed 3 days afterward on February 8th, 3 days after Last
Q, and reached here after a few days.
Cyclone "GUILLAME" formed 2 days after a Last Q.
Cyclone "DES" formed a day after a Last Q.
All in all there were about 14, including Trina, Pam, Waka, Bernie,
Dina, Eddy, Chris, Claudia, Guilliame and Des. They all formed at the
same time of the Moon's phase cycle, aided by perigees.
The perigee is now occurring in the southern hemisphere. The perigee
had been in the northern hemisphere for 3 or 4 years but after
January 2003 it started to occur south of the equator and it will now
stay south for 3 or 4 years. This is a very regular 8.85 year cycle.
Southern perigees bring destructive weather to the southern
Another factor is the 11-year cycle of solar activity, and we are
entering a cooling phase now after experiencing a peak. This will now
begin to diminish the potential for increased heat from the summer
Sun, meaning again that less cyclones may be expected and this will
be added to, once the perigee of the Moon has passed to the south.
The moon roils the oceans and changes its conductivity. But pure
coupling of cloud behavior and moon activity doesn't occur because
the whole complex system is modulated, or dampened, by the biosphere
and conductivities it creates or deletes.
- Ken Ring, a former New Zealand maths teacher, may be a very clever
weather watcher. Or perhaps he is just lucky.
On July 13 the Herald reported the bold tip of the long-range weather
forecaster from Auckland, who calls himself the "moon man". On
Saturday, August 14, Sydney's skies would open. "It will be the start
of a week of rain ... It will rain right through to the 20th," he
But the weather bureau suggested yesterday that his success in
predicting this week's rain had more to do with chance than
science. "One out of one is not statistically significant," a
spokeswoman said, adding that Mr Ring's forecasts would "need
verification over years. I think we'll wait and see."
Mr Ring said yesterday that there was more rain on the way, although
not for another month or so. "The next lot will begin on September
Sydney Morning Herald
Moon gravity waves cause roilings and GAS EXCHANGE increases in
CONDUCTIVITIES. GAS EXCHANGE is about CO2! So is life. In the oceans,
conductivity and life have been tied together even before there was
cellular life. And the moon roiling the oceans and gas exchanges and
nucleotides in parasols have been so tied--as a feedback merely has
to then passively increase rainfall and follow up storms and sort the
solution from the nucleotides that fall back down as rain, not cause
the storm directly.
The world is quickly running out of oil and there are no more great
oil fields to find. The clock is ticking and the doomsday nightmare
is quickly approaching
Is there a master plan out there to forestall this impeding economic
In January 2001, the U.S. Department of Energy estimated the world's
supply of unexploited oil reserves the world supply of oil will be
totally exhausted 35 years from now (June 2003).
For its part, OPEC now expects global oil consumption this year to
reach 81.18 million barrels a day , up 280,000 barrels from an
Total oil resources (both discovered and undiscovered, excluding oil
already produced) are 2,311 Billion Barrels.
If all the oil will be gone in 35 years at current consumption rates
then with even a modest growth when will it run out?
When supply and demand forces the price of oil above $100 a barrel we
will see a world wide economic depression that dwarfs the American
depression of the 1920's.

That's less than half of the figure you gave for the estimated reserves!

Necessity is the mother of invention. If and when the price of oil
becomes too expensive to be economicially viable, you can bet there
will be new technologies.
- Oops. It's millions, not billions. I just cut and pasted it, so it
wasn't my mistake :)
