      During that time, the winter deeper water
      temperature and salinity levels of the western Mediterranean
      didn't support methane phase changing to methane
      hydrates, and the specific conductivity of that region of
      the ocean changed and less evaporation occurred in
      the summer, and cirrus where not enhanced--and
      monsoonal flow ended. As desert, this area no longer
      supports carbon cycling in the air. Likewise, warming of
      areas under ice will result in the carbon cycle taking
      time to add CO2 to the air as it take time for the ice
      to melt, greenery to grow, and for the rotting
      greenery to make it to ocean and air. <br><br>This lag
      doesn't mean that CO2 isn't a positive feedback. Indeed,
      it is part of the methanogens metabolism. What it
      means is that what we are doing with fossil fuels is
      sort of like urinating in your IV bag. Sure you need
      fluids, but you body modulates your chemistry and you
      urinate for a reason. <br><br>The other so called
      "skeptical" thing that propaganda.org does is talk about
      greenery doing better with higher CO2. To that, I agree,
      but again it is the spin. The spin it to say that we
      should have unfettered use of fossil fuels--that is the
      purpose of their point. But my skeptcism of CO2 as a
      green house gas is objective--and goes another way--the
      more CO2 and more greenery, the more ROTTING. Indeed,
      the Keeling Whorf Hawaiian Islands data shows greater
      and greater annual oscillations of CO2, or swing--and
      that is just the rotting that makes the air. The
      breakdown of CO2 that matters the most is occurring in the
      oceans respecting methane hydrates, and again, it is
      like urinating in your IV bag respecting the earth's
      health.

        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
