Welcome to our group Jim
- You will really enjoy discussing your interests with David here.
I see that Steve MacDonald (Gigabite) has been posting with you.
Steve used to belong here but his old email address is bouncing.
Perhaps you can PM him over at 2YK to come join so that we can
communicate. I would appreciate that.
As you know I was suspended, and I didn't flame or do ANYTHING except
write my theory with respect to large scale electrical features and
cloud microphyics. The Windy and Kevin posters there are having a
great deal of difficulty, because the baratropical behaviors that
they are comfortable with have event horizons of a few days whereas
what we are talking about have horizons of longer timescales.
I used to post EVERYDAY for five years with a operational
meteorologist over at NYTimes when they had a thread on global
warming. That discussion evolved, and my appreciation for CO2 as an
electrical, conductivity forcing changed with time. It reached a
point where at the end of October I predicted a tropical storm in the
E Carribean at the end of the season, and it occurred. He saw it
coming about 5 days out. And after that I teased him that the score
was 45 to 5, and he took it for about 2 weeks and then didn't post
again. Five years of arguing, debating, EVERYDAY and then after that-
-nothing. His ego had been crushed. The same thing you are dealing
with in Windy and Kevin, because they are jeolous of the fact that
you are talking about a forcing beyond the event horizon of the
baratropical approach they are familiar with.
Those posters wouldn't know the 'science' of large scale EMFs if it
bit them in the ass, so to them none of your posts have any causal
mechanism to make your predictions anything less than a crystal
ball. But there is indeed a causal mechanism, and it starts with
appreciating that in DC fields the ions in super cooled cloud
droplets migrate and that impacts cloud formation microphysics, cloud
dynamics, their fluid dynamics. They will NEVER understand what you
are posting about.
BTW, I really enjoy David's posts here particularly in the winter
when elevated solar winds (not under 500 like you see for
cyclogenesis) mean a greater chance of a storm for us here in
Redding, particularly with a rising SOI, although the solar wind
change can cause the SOI to rise . . . it's going to be really
interesting here if we get you and Steve and David to start comparing
