      "Milly and his colleagues combined a climate
      model with a river model, tied them together, and
      examined different scenarios to identify trends. The
      trends for the 20th century, particularly at high
      altitudes and in equatorial regions, closely mirrored what
      had actually happened, giving the scientists a fair
      degree of confidence in the model. <br><br>Based on the
      model's projections, said Milly, it's reasonable to
      assume that increased flooding over the past century was
      related to global warming, and the increase is likely to
      continue." <br><br>From: Climate Studies Point to More

      exactly the kind of study most of the thermal chaos
      scientists doen't have a clue about, as most of thier ilk
      are clueless. It's really sad, actually, the damage
      from this kind of spin off the data.

        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
