MagickWizard, you're not arguing for a new force. Even with the sun reducing its output, the general increase in temperature as we approach our fiery galactic center could easily counter the decrease in output by the sun. Mars: the notion that Mars is warming came from an unfortunate conflation of weather and climate. THIS IS THE PROBLEM Science has taken a knee to politicians and federally funded scientists. The Earth's climate seems to be changing much more quickly than it used to do. The only other planet showing any sort of climate change at the moment is Jupiter, where the giant red spot has changed recently. - you think it's ok to dismiss them. [Fortunately, Einstein is long dead, and so won't be able to protest against that "Alternative Fact".]. MagicWizard, why would forces that we can not detect have more of an effect than the forces that we can detect. In order for any observed variable to be determined to have a significant departure from normal, a long enough time serie must be acquired to define normal. 1) The water discovered on Mars was discovered by an orbital platform that has been orbiting Mars since 2006. 2000 years of fake Gods, and Brainwashing. For a really strong greenhouse effect, we should look at Venus. For comparison, the reduction in release of energy from the Earth's surface due to the increase in CO2 since the preindustrial is 1.9 +/-0.19 W/m^2. Strawman arugments also have no place. "NASA's fleet of THEMIS spacecraft, launched less than 8 months ago, has made three important discoveries about spectacular eruptions of Northern Lights called "substorms" and the source of their power. It's reasonable to hypothesize that galactic weather could have a much greater effect on the solar system, as a whole, during certain galactic weather events. The clues to climate change on Venus will probably be found in the composition of its atmosphere, with isotopic ratios of elements like carbon and hydrogen pointing the way to understanding when and why it became so hot and dry. Even if we removed all man-made contributors driving the AGW climate change, it would only clear up 10%-12% of the problem. The next solar cycle did not start until 2010, the maximum until 2014, and it was the lowest maximum since 1958 (and probably since the early 20th century): Jacksan recommends that we should "Question everything and always do your own research and take your own conclusions." Since our solar system is roughly 25,000 light years from the galactic center, then our solar system would need to travel around 20,000 light years to get into the more densely-starred inner regions, where, let us suppose [though it isn't] the background radiation level is the equivalent of 1 degree hotter (i.e. - "On Christmas Eve, 2009, the startling hypothesis that our Solar System, the Sun and all its planets, are moving into a potentially dangerous and destabilizing interstellar energy cloud, was resoundingly sustained." Neptune: observations of changes in luminosity on the surface of both Neptune and its largest moon, Triton, have been taken to indicate warming caused by increased solar activity. And even when told of two newlt discovered sources of energy never added to any clculation - you think it's ok to dismiss them. Extra milliWatts can be safely ignored. Now put the brisket back on the oven and lower the oven's temperature slightly to 325 degrees Fahrenhiet for a half hour. Response to sjw40364 from inappropriate thread: I looked at all the links provided, and not a single one of them alludes to a warming of the climate of the planets mentioned. Please stay on the topic of this thread, Other planets are warming. Damn your lying eyes!). It's nothing new - has been going on for as long as this earth has existed - and will continue to go up and down regardless of what we choose to do. Life on Earth would disappear due to the extreme temperatures long before reaching even half of the concentrations of carbon dioxide on Venus. I agree with what I think was the OP's original assertion that the Sun's weather is, by far, the greatest determinant of weather on the Earth. It would be a suitable place for life if it were not so cold: its surface is at a freezing -180 °C. Hi there. 2)  On the outer planets, at least, higher windspeeds are associated with cooler temperatures. Understanding the factors influencing Titan, Venus and Mars, could also help to us to understand the climate on Earth. That’s equivalent to observing the Earth’s weather for just three weeks out of the year. I'll add that, before condescending onto others about thermodynamics, you should perhaps verify that the ideas you defend do comply with them. You desire that all planets be warming, so you infer from any change (or entirely new observation) that it is evidence of that warming with no effort to tie the two phenomenon together. the 1 degree hotter that the Earth's surface temperature has risen, in the past 150 years or so). I must agree with Tom Curtis on this one. Unfortunately for Joseph (and Jacksan), Opher et al make no claim that "the Solar System has begun to pass into" the magnetic field. Just as they will be ignored in this conversation. Right now we can only detect earth's solar connection. Opher et al (2009) find that "We find that the field strength in the local interstellar medium is 3.7–5.5 μG", which is more than twice the previous estimates mentioned in the paper of 1.8-2.5 μG. Why then are we so arrogant as to think there is not an elite in science as there is in sport and that cobbled together misquotation is a genuine substitute for scientific expertise? Lest you think that Daniel's reply is giving you the "brusque off" . So as soon as the Sun's input to the Earth flattens, the energy imbalance in the Earth (energy in minus energy out) instantly starts decreasing. Climate models predict temperature increases along the equator and cooling at the poles. We can measure the various activities of the sun pretty accurately from here on Earth, or from orbit above it, so it is hard to ignore the discrepancy between the facts and the sceptical argument that the sun is causing the rise in temperatures. Uninformed opinions carry no validity whatsoever against those formed by the understanding of the scientific issues involved. I've found this thread very intriguing (and long-running). Various quotes from the same source previously mentioned: "“We have discovered a strong magnetic field just outside the solar system. Magnetic flux has been considered as an element of the GCR argument. That is because heat introduces turbulence that decreases the velocity of the wind. In that article, he repeatedly refers to his book, Apocalypse 2012: An Investigation into Civilization’s End, which is described in his bio: "Apocalypse 2012 is a personal exploration of the strange coincidence that both ancient Mayan prophecy and contemporary solar physics indicate that the year 2012 will be uniquely pivotal, perhaps catastrophic. However, most scientists agree that Mars was much warmer in the past and even had oceans, which means that the atmosphere was also very different. What do we do to achieve the least expensive means to accomplish this? To any respondents, please likewise follow those guidelines before discussion goes west and I have to start deleting comments. Your strawmen convince no one but yourself. In fact, the brightening is due to the planet’s seasons changing, but very slowly. So what? Not recognizing that, and pulling quotes out of context, assuming predictions are valid when they are falsified and generally questioning everything except your own conclusions as Jacksan has done is a recipe for pseudoscience, conspiracy theories and nonsense. University Of Toronto. All this has zero credibility. This does not stop the nutters deciding the warning is about something completely different. After all you don't have to heat it back up 5 minutes after it comes out of the oven. Together, these act like a greenhouse, trapping heat and warming the planet. http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/cassini/whycassini/cassini20110420.html. It went up right? Flux ropes eh? Select serious sources. . Mars, Triton, Pluto and Jupiter all show global warming, pointing to the Sun as the dominating influence in determining climate throughout the solar system." If all the land ice on Earth melted, it would raise sea level around 260 feet (80 meters), so understanding how the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets are changing is important to predicting future sea level. But pretending 15 hours or less of internet searches (or even a year of internet searches) is some kind of substitute for those hard yards is arrogant nonsense. ; "In fact, most scientists had either minimized the possible significance of the interstellar energy cloud or dismissed the whole notion of its existence altogether. Use the controls in the far right panel to increase or decrease the number of terms automatically displayed (or to completely turn that feature off). let me expand the answer to your humorous question [though to be more precise, your question is more like 3 jocular assertions, well beyond science fiction comedy]. So many inferences about lack of research and data, now one about backyard quarterbacks (did you mean armchair quarterbacks? Angelopoulos estimates the total energy of the two-hour event at five hundred thousand billion (5 x 1014) Joules. Frankly, you most recent post adds nothing new to the discussion, illustrating only your determination to shut your eyes to counter evidence with regard to your pet theory. Therefore its existence does not constitute a change. Link to this page. Saturn and its moons take 30 Earth years to orbit the Sun, so three decades of observations equates to only 1 Saturnian year. In this analogy, what is typical for the brisket is the 175 degrees worth of heat radiation from the oven. Venus will help us understand what happens when the greenhouse effect is really extreme. However, these atmospheric gases trap some of the outgoing energy, and it is retained as heat. "We believe that solar wind particles flow in along these ropes, providing energy for geomagnetic storms and auroras.... ..."THEMIS encountered its first magnetic rope on May 20, 2007," says Sibeck. You select snippets from news stories, fail to look into their true significance, and automatically assume that they support your theory, while said theory is itself ill defined and rather free of constraints from basic physics. Are they warming at all? I found this claim very interesting and I was intrigued how this claim could support the idea that climate change in natural and not caused by anthropogenic factors. I'm just curious if our temperature changes might be related to the position of our solar system withon the galaxy, just as seasons temperatures can change based on our position around our sun. THINK positively, and critically! http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/cassini/media/cassini-20080103_prt.htm. The magnetopause is where the solar wind and Earth's magnetic field meet and push against one another like sumo wrestlers locked in combat. After an hour check the brisket's temperature. Pretty much says it all, really - but not if you want to follow the great Mayan Calander catastrophist of 2012 in reading catastrophic outcomes from interstellar tea leaves. You didn't even know that this energy source, http://newsroom.ucla.edu/releases/scientists-discover-surprise-in-101025. Please comment on an appropriate thread, such as the rebuttal to "It's a Natural Cycle." Various theories suggest its highly elliptical orbit may play a part, as could the large angle of its rotational axis. Venus is covered by a thick atmosphere of carbon dioxide and clouds made of sulfuric acid. You post has numerous instance where you making such statement. IBEX has been directly sampling neutral helium atoms from the interstellar cloud as part of its mission to map the boundary between the solar system and the rest of the galaxy. I'll add that not everything is a matter of point of view. The lag is not nearly as long as the time in which the Sun's radiance has been flat. All the outer planets have vastly longer orbital periods than Earth, so any climate change on them may be seasonal. The Red Planet displays hardly any greenhouse effect. Your reasoning is shown to consist of taking some unanalyzed (by you) data from the news and simply assume that it automatically applies in support of your theory (without analysis) and that it is very significant (again without analysis and in very stark contradiction to the facts). The first is gamma-ray emissions from the centre of our galaxy. According to NASA, the Themis spacecraft have "... made three important discoveries about spectacular eruptions of Northern Lights called "substorms" and the source of their power" (emphasis added). Suggesting that any of these articles indicates a warming climate on the planets considered indicates that sjw did not read or understand the articles. One cosmic year ago the Earth was just recovering from the worst mass-extinction ever, the end-Permian 252 million years ago. Things could be more delicate than most of us realize.So, if the Sun has such a major impact on the Earth's weather, how much more does our own galactic weather have on our Sun and it's solar system? I heartilly recommend to as many people as possible that they do do the hard yards to become genuine scientists. Last updated on 15 September 2010 by gpwayne. We need concensus and realistic goals. Your link dates from 2012 and is wrtten in particularly sensational language, usually a bit of a give-away with such publication. So those who claim to follow science are going to contiinue to ignore that during the same time frame that the earth became warmer - the Winds of venus increased - over the entire timeframe that the mission proceeded. What the Energy Cycles of Other Planets Can Tell Us About Climate Change on Earth Written by Megan Gannon Source astrobio.net Scientists sometimes think of a planet’s atmosphere as an engine. Use the search engine. What could have triggered such a huge change in climate? That would be a grave situation — indeed, a situation of extreme gravity! You must back your position by references/data. They are useful to see our errors and to help us make adjustments. mkuske, please do not refresh the page after submitting a comment. but the general public only knew about around 2009(!!!) It is referenced only by use of a NASA quote “once in a lifetime super solar storm event”  that apparently dates to March 2006 (the NASA archive links to this are not providing any text at present) and is about the 11-year solar cycle which (No 24) was soon to begin in 2006. Falsified every textbook you had on the subject - so of course it is unimportant to you, you still use them. The existing atmosphere is so thin that it cannot retain energy from the Sun. It is astonishingly rapid in astronomical terms, but in terms of earthly impacts it is glacial. have damaged our ecosystems - just a debate over the degree to which we have damaged things. Every single atmosphereic scientist in the world was stunned by what they found, yet you discount this newly discovered source of energy as unimportat????? "UCLA atmospheric scientists have discovered a previously unknown basic mode of energy transfer from the solar wind to the Earth's magnetosphere. Compensating for human error and good and bad "guesses". Skeptics on Earth argue that the rash of 1 in 1000 years weather events we saw on a regular basis over the past few years are not due to a warming climate. That's approximately equivalent to the energy of a magnitude 5.5 earthquake.". We can detect freakin's neutrinos for God's sake, why would something that we can't detect have such a hufe effect, which is perfectly explicable by the forces we can detect? There is a right answer. Our solar system is travelling through an interstellar medium, the density and energy of which may vary greatly - and for extended periods of time. Sceptical arguments have ignored the fact this is not a phenomenon we have observed, and that the modelled forcing is storm and dust movements, not changes in solar radiation. Now NASA knew something was up, knew enough energy was being generated to disrupt satelites, probes, etc. "; "The fact that the wind is shifting over the span of mere decades means that the interior of the cloud is either unusually turbulent, or that the solar system is a mere 1000 or so years away from punching its way out. It should be unnecessary to say that any significant climate changes related to the galaxy (if there are any) happens on a much, much larger time scale than a century or so! The hypothetical rubber-band pulling our solar system (toward the inner Galaxy) would need to be extraordinarily strong — also, if you care to calculate the accelerations involved, they turn out to be truly formidable. "It was very large, about as wide as Earth, and located approximately 40,000 miles above Earth's surface in a region called the magnetopause." Or is there a different magnetic flux you're aware of but scientists are not?You can argue for all the mysterious undiscovered forces you want, but until you show the force as a physical mechanism, no one will take you seriously. If you wish to discuss whether global warming has continued over the recent decade+ period, go to this thread where they explain why you are very, very wrong: Global warming since 1997 more than twice as fast as previously estimated, new study shows. It seems scientists have noticed recently that quite a few planets in our solar system seem to be heating up a bit, including Pluto. ESA’s Huygens probe is currently heading to Titan. And yet the earth has been undergoing heating for the last 25,000 years with no help from man at all. Jacksan @43 is the latest in a long line of people endorsing the Anthing But CO2 (ABC) theory of climate change. Likewise if it's been out of the oven for 30 minutes and you do want it a little warmer, you don't have to cook it for an hour again, starting from scratch. Frankly, I am no impressed. http://clivebest.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/Global-temps.png. Then there is the minor difficulty: umpteen thousand professional and amateur astronomers (as well as a few billion non-astronomer humans) have not detected any significant displacement of Earth relative to the stars visible at nighttime, during the past century or so.
