      Here is a link to a story that blames the sun for
      the hole in the ozone at the poles, and in particular
      Antarctica, not on CFS emissions, that, unlike CO2 emissions,
      have found disfavor in the political world. In fact,
      you may be surprised to hear what type of gas gets
      now tets released in the refrigeration business,
      according to a air conditioning repair person I
      know--CO2.<br><br><a href=http://www.theage.com.au/breaking/19990621/A56110-1999Jun20.shtml target=new>http://www.theage.com.au/breaking/19990621/A56110-1999Jun20.shtml</a><br><br><br>At this newsstory link there is a report that
      geology professor in China postulates that the damage to
      the ozone in Antarctica is caused by high energy
      particles of the solar winds. In this discussion it has a
      context that some have argued that solar variability, in
      particular with respect to these winds, is responsible for
      changes in climate. Indeed, it was only a three years ago
      that every book I could get my hands on respecting the
      Little Ice Age cycle indicated that this cycle was
      solar, and the Meander Minimum was always cited. Now, of
      course, we know that the cycle is better defined by the
      cycling of moon orbiting the earth in a pattern Whorf at
      Scripps described.

        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
