      I wonder if many of the scientists studying
      climate for or against "global warming" are either not
      educated in biological systems or simply choose not to
      understand due to their politics. Few understand the
      biological role that the ionosphere plays in climate, just
      like most skeptics overstate the sun's role. Whether
      this is a political fib or ignorance, frankly it is
      difficult to tell. If you are unfamiliar with the fossil
      fuel party lines, they are always couched in terms of
      physical science and chaos, but not biological science.
      Sadly, most Americans, and women in particular, are
      unfamiliar with the biological systems of the oceans,
      although they seem pretty good at understanding biology
      and ecosystems. Yet, much of what I have been posting
      about is how the ionosphere is adjusted to feedbacks by
      methanogen activity. Biological systems adjust to "nature",
      but now they are having to face a new challenge,
      human activity. "Natrually", coal and oil takes
      millions of years to become part of the carbon cycle
      again. We are doing it overnight. So, the BIOLOGICAL
      systems that control our climate and protect us from
      natural chaotic and random extremes must do double duty,
      and that is risky. Skeptics say to ignore this risk
      because climate and nature is already risky. Again, this
      is either ingorance or a lie--probably a little of
      both.

        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
