Climate “Science” on Trial; Did Cosmic Rays End the CA Drought?

download (2)Talk to any climate “scientist” before the recent California flooding, and they would have described an endless drought being caused by man made CO2.

California Drought Is Made Worse by Global Warming, Scientists Say

California to experience endless drought

Parched: California Braces for Drought Without End in Sight

Like the recent election, the “experts” and media could not have been more wrong. As we know now, the drought ended in California in dramatic style. Fears went from endless drought to whether or not the Oroville Dam will survive the “ARkStorm.” Just like after the election, when the “experts” or so epically wrong, it is time to self-reflect and ask “what went wrong, what didn’t we see?”

What went wrong should be obvious to everyone. If you aren’t looking for the answer, you will never find it, especially for a question as complicated as the global climate.  Ask any climate “expert” the cause of the drought and there will be a universal canned answer of “man-made CO2.” Ignoring the fact that droughts have occurred in California throughout history and some of the worst were before the industrial era.   The answer is easy, and the media will never challenge it. The problem that answer has been proven 100% wrong.

The California drought demonstrates the dangers the extreme focus on man-made CO2 causes. All the research money is directed away from real research, research that may actually help understand the climate, and towards the pseudo-science of man-made CO2 caused climate change. No one is even looking for the real answers.

Cosmic rays, combined with the ending of an abnormally strong El Nino may have created the perfect storm to end the “endless” drought in California. Unfortunately, we may never know. Why won’t we know? Because the data needed to reach such a conclusion doesn’t exist. Once again, if you aren’t looking for the answer, you will never find it. To answer that question you would need to have a robust data set measuring the cosmic rays and cloud cover over the globe. Those data sets simply don’t exist. Money needed to collect that data has been misdirected towards measuing CO2 and its impact.

What data we do have however starts to make an interesting case:

  1. Satellite Data demonstrates a sharp El Nino/Nina spike and decline in global temperatures.UAH_LT_1979_thru_February_2017_v6-550x317
  2. The sun has entered an unusually quiet period, with the current solar cycle being the third weakest since 1755.download1
  3. The weak solar cycle has resulted in more cosmic rays entering our atmosphere.download2

The hypothesis would simply be that the El Nino greatly increased the ability of the atmosphere to hold water vapor and the cosmic rays “seeded” the clouds. The combination of the two created what is referred to as an “atmospheric river.022017-Pineapple-express_online

Why haven’t you read in the New York Times such a theory? Because it doesn’t require CO2, it explains the climate change as being natural. Will this theory be tested anytime soon? Doubtful. Why? Because the data simply doesn’t exist. The data for the above cosmic rays graphic is collected by a bunch of volunteer students in California. I guess NASA was too busy mothballing the Space Shuttle to make room for their CO2 labs.

What is this all about? Approximately once a week, and the students of Earth to Sky Calculus fly space weather balloons to the stratosphere over California. These balloons are equipped with radiation sensors that detect cosmic rays, a surprisingly “down to Earth” form of space weather. Cosmic rays can seed clouds, trigger lightning, and penetrate commercial airplanes.

How a “science” can be settled without ruling out any of the other possible causes, or even having the data to do so is beyond me, but once again, if you don’t look for alternative explanations, you will never find them. The is the real problem with the pseudo-science of CO2 driven climate change, it diverts resources away from those who wish to perform real research and real science to help humanity truly understand the climate.Screen-Shot-2017-03-10-at-8.23.06-PM

BTW, the MO of the Climate Alarmists is to deny, deflect, deceive, distort, and attack. One favorite tactic is to “appeal to authority,” who are often the “Fact Checkers.” These favorite attack dogs are a tainted jury at best.

  1. The polar vortex is subject to a 60-year cycle (weak-strong). Polar vortex also responds to changes in the solar wind. Therefore the jet stream went far south to the Pacific. Therefore, the air in the upper layers of the California is cold and in the mountains still snowing.


    1. Those are the kinds of things I would think we should be studying. I would want to know how a continually increasing CO2 can cause a “cycle.” Thanks for the comment.


  2. “Having a way of remotely measuring the electric fields on the ground … would be very useful,” says lightning physicist Joseph Dwyer of the University of New Hampshire in Durham, who was not involved with the research. To improve our predictions of where lightning will strike, Dwyer says, scientists first need to understand the basics of how it happens. With this method, he says, “eventually we may be able to … catch lightning initiation in action,” which could help unravel the mystery behind its formation.

    Scientists have come up with a few possible explanations for how lightning gets going, and the new technique could eventually discern between the options. One is that chunks of ice and water in a storm concentrate the fields, creating small regions that are strong enough to spark. Another controversial idea is that cosmic rays themselves might initiate lightning, thanks to the charged particles they leave in their wake. But there’s no convincing evidence for either option. The new method could finally settle the question, Schellart says.

    The technique is still in its early stages, with just a handful of showers characterized so far, so the results aren’t reshaping scientists’ ideas about thunderstorms yet. But with more data and an improved analysis, it could be a powerful tool. Still, Dwyer says, this is the first time the technique has been demonstrated, “so they certainly deserve a boatload of credit for this.”


  3. Cosmic rays are responsible for 99.99% of atmospheric (warm) energy.

    Man made co2 is 0.01% of our atmosphere.

    Considering this “tiny” difference your theory seems very very probable.

    Sadly modern climate theory is=

    You have a big big elephant in your living room(=cosmic rays)
    you also have a big pile of poo there(=climate/warming)
    a mosquito(co2) is sitting on the top of this pile =

    Blame the mosquito(co2)
    for creating the pile of poo(climate)
    and not the elefant(cosmis rays)

    as the elefant is on the other side of the room
    but the poo has contact to the butt of the mosquito.

    Every 5 year old knows who is responsible for the pile of poo
    but not a modern scientist.

    btw-there is a reason why california is full of deserts.
    Ongoing droughts for thousands,maybe millions of years
    and if you let in some million new people(eg illegals)
    without building new reservoir dams to compensate the additional demand you will run out of water very fast.
    Especially in dry periods-and dry periods are a normal thing in california.
