I am trying to keep the special notice messages down to a handful.
Parden me in advance.
My last notice was my prediction for the 2002 hurricane season. It
is about to start. What happened last year is that as word got out
how powerful Gaia theory was toward predicting tropical activity,
especially as we interacted in other bbs which are tropical storm
oriented, our members grew. We can really expect great growth this
year as well.
As you all know, I called Allison and Michelle last April, and this
year I called for NO EL NINO despite the Rossby wave, NOAA's, John
Daly's (his expert), and even Dr. William Gray's prediction. Well,
now that the trending reversed, everyone is singing a different
Anyway, the reason this special notice is going out is that the group
picture I have is of El Nino winds and SST anomalies in 1998. It is
interesting as a picture because it really shows how those east to
west winds enhance cirrus activity and then warm the SSTs. However,
since there is no longer anyone calling for an El Nino, I wonder if
anyone has a suggestion for a group picture.
Finally, I also wonder about a chat. Last year, I actually wanted to
join a chat with our sister group the Hurricane Team, but I never
figured out how to do the chat. Which is going to make it even harder
for me to moderate it! It might be fun to do a chat with the first
tropical storm, particularly if we can somehow get real time flaring
data? Anyway, I am open to suggestions.
Fred, I saw how those ads overlay the links. I just cut and paste
dragged it away from the ad to a notepad and then cut and pasted the
link. It's hard to complain too much as this is free and FUN!
I continue to invite top climate people as I see them make the papers
and I can get their email. So far, we are the hottest unknown site
on the net on climate--but I suspect that won't last. This is just
too powerful an analytical tool to go unnoticed long.
