      Now, the very specific rule of current flow is
      thus--the warmer the ocean, the greater the resistence to
      electrical current flow. That is your "iris." It is an
      independant limitation to a cirrus warming FEEDBACK, true,
      but if offset by the insulating properties of methane
      hydrates, electric current will better flow. <br><br>The
      idea that cirrus formation 150 km from the
      cumulonnibus cloud tops, which are found in a very small area,
      is maintained by the intensity of cumulonimbus
      vertical dynamics is completely absurd. What is happening
      here is the electrical charges of the ice/water is
      countered by the electrical currents in the oceans
      underneath these clouds, and hence they stay air borne
      longer. And I don't even have to add this is consistant
      with a living Gaia planet that had to keep out UV
      light and warm the ocean from a colder sun. <br><br>Are
      methane hydrates really insulating?

      discuss methane hydrates (MHs) have a resistance of about

      concentration having about 1.5 ohms/meter (as you go deeper in
      the sediments core thermal energy melts the methane
      hydrates). I have postulated suspended methane hydrates with
      upwellings. Conductivity of ocean water is greater because

      because MHs have a lower density than the ocean water

      if it does not and rises about the MH stability
      zone, it can for a short time insulate currents as it

        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
