      said in a reporter's version and the abstract, that I
      did read, I actually agree with the full version. It
      turns out that in the absence of methane hydrates you
      get deep ocean eddies under conditions of cold air
      and poor fresh water. Normally they are confined to
      the Med or the poles because methane hydrates and
      methanogen activity is lacking to modulate the methane
      hydrate stability zone. What is happening here is there
      is so little fresh water coming into a part of the
      ocean he is referencing that overturning occurs. I am
      saying something different about the entire North
      Pacific gyre itself changed from the lack of
      ditritus--even in parts of the ocean where the ocean temperature
      is cooler and less saline with methanogen/methane
      hydrate activity and methane hydrate fields to
      buffer/modulate changes in salininty. This is lack of detritis is
      causing the drought in China/Mongolia, all the way to the
      northeast. It is so dry there is a dust bowl.

        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
