sky is falling" cried chicken little.
All of you people
keep promising me disasters of horrible proportions, I am
stocked up and ready to escape and what happens? Nothing.
When, that is all I ask. When??? is it too much to ask?
I don't know when, it could be thousands (or millions) of
years. I know what others have said, and you get anything
from tomorrow, to 2003, 2011, 2012, 2020, etc.
I'm not trying to be chicken little, I'm not promising
disasters of horrible proportions, in your lifetime anyway.
I'm just trying to get people to either confirm, correct, or
disprove my hypothesis. I do believe that there has been
massive and cataclysmic upheavals in the past, extinction
level events. . . and it seems more to me I have discovered
'a' mechanism, not 'the' mechanism.
The nice part about the Solar Typhoon hypothesis, is that
with the development of ever more advanced supercomputers
and refinement of MHD, the day will come when a simulator
can be written and the hypothesis tested. With a simulation
would come the information of how big a solar typhoon would
be required to cause ECD, and with the SOHO, we would get
anywhere from 72 to 18 hours of notice of a potentially
Earth changing solar event. Advanced solar analysis may give
even more warning of such a solar event. Such computational
power will be available within the next ten to fifteen
years. Additionally, that same computational power could be
used to try to predict, based on the most current and
accurate measurements, which direction the crust would slip,
and what would be the new 'center of gravity' for the Earth.
With that information, you would have some idea of where to
run. What good would being on a tall mountain be if that
mountain migrated to the new polar circle? Flood or Frozen,
both are bad.

There were some provocative
ideas in your Solar Typhoon hypothesis. At the moment, I'm
tracking a number of phenomena (CMEs, volcanic and
earthquake activity) and I'm fairly convinced that your
proposed scenario may not be far from the truth. Not only
that, it may be more imminent than most of us would prefer
to believe. In days of war and other fantastic events (many
of them literally astronomical in nature) it's easy to fear
the worst and assume that "the end is nigh".
However, that's not necessarily a reason to discount all
ominous predictions. We're just on the cusp of a NEO (Near
Earth Object) encounter with asteroid 1998WT24. And while
projections indicate that this relatively small mass (1 to 2
km in diameter) will miss us by about 1.7 million km, I
believe that's just too close for comfort. With little
effort being paid to such space-borne hazards, it's
inevitable that we'll pay a dear price for our ignorance,
Now, I shouldn't be too harsh
in my assessment. A few well-intentioned organizations have
expended serious effort in trying to make plain the
precarious nature of our position. Unfortunately, their
pleas have fallen largely upon deaf ears, so I'm not getting
my hopes up. In addition to the possible calamity of an
Earth-grazing, hair-raising asteroidal experience, we are
also facing the real possibility of geomagnetic
polarity-reversal. Some would contend (the majority, I
imagine) that this is such an unlikely event that it barely
merits consideration. But, the evidence of geomagnetic field
diffusion would seem to support an increased likelihood of
such an occurrence. And given the massive CMEs we've seen
this year, I wouldn't entirely discount the possibility that
they could enhance the tendency of the Earth's field to
"flip". Most of the "serious space
sites" contend that the geomagnetic field of the Earth
is a "weak force" and hardly something to be
feared. Most say that GM progeny, like the Coriolis Effect,
can only affect such phenomena as Hurricanes because the CE
is so generalized; basically implying that it's incapable of
exerting any other predominant effect. Well, they were
obviously nowhere near South Dade, FL, when Andrew came
ripping through. To these folks, I would hasten to mention
that the molten core of the Earth can be expected to respond
similarly to a polar shift.
It would be extremely
disconcerting, to say the least, if we had a gravitational
asteroid "slingshot" event with a certain amount
of debris, followed by a polarity reversal in the Earth. The
latter would likely be heralded by increased lightning,
volcanic and seismic activity. I'll be keeping an eye open,
and I encourage others to do the same. Hysteria has only a
short term effect, and a negative rebound afterward, but by
gathering data and postulating plausible theory, perhaps we
can gather the sustained momentum required to save us.
Hmmm... think I'll take a
break now. I feel an X-Class flare coming on.

I just read your theories from
Flem-ath's web-site after being tipped off to it on the
dailygrail.com. I have just recently read Rand's
I don't know if there is
really enough evidence for the kind of slipping crust
that you describe, but I'm sure people will start looking
for it now. So many people don't realize that
"science" is comprised of such a large and
complex establishment, and "looking" for
evidence is such an expensive and involved task, there are
an infinity of discoveries yet to be made; and they almost
never find anything unless they look to prove or disprove
a certain hypothesis.
Your solar typhoon theory is
totally exceptable to me based on logic alone. I am
a native Arizonan, born in 1953, and I was there in the
1970s when the first "100 year flood event" hit
the state filling all the Salt River reservoirs which had
previously, since their construction, held all the
seasonal floodwaters with no problem. This heavy
rain event caused the first releases of water into the
Salt River through the Phoenix metropolitan area and wiped
out all the crossings between the north side of the river,
Phoenix and Scottsdale; and the south side, Tempe and
Mesa; with the exception of the old two-lane Mill Avenue
bridge constructed before statehood on a solid stone reef
foundation. This flood event also washed out a
number of homes and businesses, which had been
built during during the years since the flood plain had
first become protected by the upstream dams.
After the flood, many of the structures in the flood
plain were repaired or rebuilt, thinking the "100
year flood" would not happen again for a long time.
They were wrong and the same type of flood event has
happened immediately following and several times
since that first event. Now people talk of "200
year floods" or even "500 year floods"
I witnessed one described that way in the Verde Valley in
The point I'm trying to make
from this, is how complacent the human population is
about natural disasters, and how we get lulled, quite
easily, into believing they never happen or won't happen
in our lifetime; yet there is always a stronger storm
out there. A bigger hurricane, a colder winter, a
hotter summer, a bigger flood than any we have recorded.
It is only logical that a bigger solar storm is just a
matter of time and the evidence is out there for
disastrous changes to the earth when that happens.
The mainstream media has brought some awareness to the
population about the possibilities of Comet or meteor
impact; but we are almost oblivious, as a population, as
to the effects the suns normal fluctuations could cause.
Can you imagine the
disruption which could be caused by the depressing of the
magnetosphere to the distance of our communication,
weather and GPS satellites. Our technolgy is
heading towards almost total reliance on electricity
and various energy waves which would be rendered
useless by such a storm. The crustal shift you
hypothesize would be totally destructive, yet before
that point is reached, or if your hypothesis on this
is wrong and it is never reached, I do believe your
warming of the core hypothesis is most likely correct.
This alone I expect would cause increased volcanic
activity, melting of the ice caps and weather shifts of
unthinkable scale and speed.
Very scary stuff, and very
well presented. I enjoyed reading it.
