Oscillations of the baseline of solar magnetic field and solar irradiance on a millennial timescale

Posted by seumasach on February 8, 2020

The appearance of Valentina Zharkova’s thesis in Nature magazine lays down the gauntlet to the warmists and their leading theorist Michael Mann- he of the famous hockey stick who is in danger of becoming a habitual loser of court cases against opponents who have accused him of fraud. Zharkova has created a model for cycles of sunspot activity and the sun’s irradiance based on the suns behaviour as an electric dynamo which appears to correlate with historically recorded sunspot measurements and carbon 14 traces in tree rings. Thus , her model fits perfectly the historically documented Maunder Minimum 1645-1715. It also predicts a new minimum from this tear, 2020 and her theory is therefore soon to be put to the test. Mann regards the sun’s activity as being negligible regarding climate and denies that the Maunder Minimum was a period of exceptional cold- which seems to leave him standing on very thin ice.

Recently discovered long-term oscillations of the solar background magnetic field associated with double dynamo waves generated in inner and outer layers of the Sun indicate that the solar activity is heading in the next three decades (2019–2055) to a Modern grand minimum similar to Maunder one. On the other hand, a reconstruction of solar total irradiance suggests that since the Maunder minimum there is an increase in the cycle-averaged total solar irradiance (TSI) by a value of about 1–1.5 Wm−2 closely correlated with an increase of the baseline (average) terrestrial temperature. In order to understand these two opposite trends, we calculated the double dynamo summary curve of magnetic field variations backward one hundred thousand years allowing us to confirm strong oscillations of solar activity in regular (11 year) and recently reported grand (350–400 year) solar cycles caused by actions of the double solar dynamo. In addition, oscillations of the baseline (zero-line) of magnetic field with a period of 1950 ± 95 years (a super-grand cycle) are discovered by applying a running averaging filter to suppress large-scale oscillations of 11 year cycles. Latest minimum of the baseline oscillations is found to coincide with the grand solar minimum (the Maunder minimum) occurred before the current super-grand cycle start. Since then the baseline magnitude became slowly increasing towards its maximum at 2600 to be followed by its decrease and minimum at ~3700. These oscillations of the baseline solar magnetic field are found associated with a long-term solar inertial motion about the barycenter of the solar system and closely linked to an increase of solar irradiance and terrestrial temperature in the past two centuries. This trend is anticipated to continue in the next six centuries that can lead to a further natural increase of the terrestrial temperature by more than 2.5 °C by 2600.

Global warming in a climate of ignorance

Posted by seumasach on October 5, 2013

Wal Thornhill


15th February, 2007

Global warming has been deemed a fact. However, the inconvenient truth is that humans are not causing it. Al Gore has been given poor advice. Like Darwin’s theory of evolution and Big Bang cosmology, global warming by greenhouse gas emissions has undergone that curious social process in which a scientific theory is promoted to a secular myth. When in fact, science is ignorant about the source of the heat — the Sun.

Congenital Climate Abnormalities

What’s Up With That

13th February, 2010

Science is what we use to explain anomalies, to elucidate mysteries, to shed light on unexplained occurrences. For example, there is no great need for a scientific explanation of the sun rising in the morning. If one day the sun were to rise in the afternoon, however, that is an anomaly which would definitely require a scientific explanation. But there is no need to explain the normal everyday occurrences. We don’t need a new understanding if there is nothing new to understand.

India widens climate rift with west

Posted by seumasach on August 2, 2009

India will not discuss signing up to legally binding obligations to make absolute cuts in greenhouse gas emissions for at least 10 years, Jairam Ramesh, the country’s environment minister, said on Friday.

“In 2020, it’s conceivable that we might look at a limited target. But in 2009, no way,” said Mr Ramesh.

A split between rich and poor nations in the run-up to climate-change talks widened on Thursday

India rejected key scientific findings on global warming, while the European Union called for more action by developing states on greenhouse gas emissions.

Global Warming or Global Cooling? A New Trend in Climate Alarmism

Global Research

23rd July, 2009

Senator Steve Fielding recently asked the [Australian] Climate Change Minister Penny Wong why human emissions can be blamed for global warming, given that air temperatures peaked in 1998 and began a cooling trend in 2002, while carbon dioxide levels have risen five per cent since 1998. I was one of the four independent scientists Fielding chose to accompany him to visit the Minister.

Is Nature Warning Us of a New Ice Age?

Posted by seumasach on January 16, 2009


“The intent of the global warming scare is to reduce world population. That is the stated intent of its initiators and of such important promoters of this and related anti-science scares as the World Wildlife Fund, founded by Britain’s Malthusian Prince Philip and former Nazi SS officer Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands. Isn’t it time to stop being a sucker for the fear- mongering of people with another agenda—a very evil agenda whose end result will be the reduction of world population from its current level of 5 to 6 billion to less than 2 billion souls, with the concomitant dissolution into perpetual war, famine and human misery that such a plan must entail?”

If such an agenda really does exist, I would suggest that the neo-Malthusians have hit on a much more effective device for population elimination and one based on the last word in technical progress: the telecommunications system. EM radiation can be destructive of life in general but also interferes with the ability of insects, birds and animals to orientate themselves. The disappearance of the bees and other pollinators ultimately  heralds our own demise. Significantly, “global warming”, or rather “climate change” is being consistently used in the media as a cover for this apocalyptic development. Here is some more background:

January 14, 2009 (LPAC)–Global warming fears aside, all students of climate science know that the Earth is presently in an Ice Age and has been for approximately the past 2 to 2.5 million years. This Ice Age has been characterized by successive advances and retreats of a glacial ice sheet, originating in Greenland and extending across the northern portions of the North American and Eurasian continents. Just 12,000 years ago, the undisputed geological evidence shows that New York, Chicago, and all of North America up to the Arctic regions were under a sheet of ice, estimated to have been from 1 to 2 miles thick. Mountain glaciers also extended downward from the Rocky Mountains and the Appalachians in regions further to the south than the main glacial mass. A similar situation prevailed over most of Germany, northern France, the British Isles, Scandinavia, Poland and other parts of eastern Europe, and Russia.
