    A repost from here (<---):

    I have been looking at the reported changes happening around this planet and wondering what's really happening for an increase in the number of powerful earthquakes, storms and hurricanes as well as the considerable increase of plumbing system mishaps called "sink holes."

    Weather storms seem to indicate an increase in the spinning power of their vortex... water damage turning into sinkholes could also indicate an increase in the vortex power of circulating water... but I couldn't fit earthquakes into that model until realizing where these powerful earthquakes are mostly happening: subduction zones.

    What's the engine for subductions and oceanic crusts motion: convection cells in the mantle acting as conveyor belts (like some hydraulic gear shifts work)... VORTEX!

    There is an increase in the strength of vortex spins affecting anything having some "fluidity."

    That's an increase in the difference of potential between something and something else which is usually translated in terms of electromagnetism.

    Where could such an increase in potential be coming from...

    ... enters the "Electric Universe"!

    ... and our solar system postulated as a binary system. That's our sun and its postulated dwarf twin acting as the two poles of a charged capacitor.

    When the two poles get closer, the potential difference increases due to the shortening of the distance... up to a maximum when at closest to each other (hopefully not a shorting of the circuit where the system is reset at equipotential for both poles with a big spark).

    That's where I am at, at the moment and it's subject to revision at any time new data show up
    There seems to be something happening in the cosmos of our solar system:

    Weird volcanoes are erupting across the solar system

    Elizabeth Howell Live Science

    This annotated image highlights the location of the new heat source close to the south pole of Io. The image was generated from data collected on Dec. 16, 2017, by the Jovian Infrared Auroral Mapper (JIRAM) instrument aboard NASA's Juno mission when the spacecraft was about 290,000 miles (470,000 kilometers) from the Jovian moon. The scale to the right of image depicts of the range of temperatures displayed in the infrared image.
    Higher recorded temperatures are characterized in brighter colors - lower temperatures in darker colors.

    NASA's Juno spacecraft recently spotted a possible new volcano at the south pole of Jupiter's most lava-licious moon, Io. But this volcanically active moon is not alone in the solar system, where sizzling-hot rocks explode and ooze onto the surface of several worlds. So how do Earthly volcanoes differ from those erupting across the rest of the solar system?

    Let's start with Io. The moon is famous for its hundreds of volcanoes, including fountains that sometimes spurt lava dozens of miles above the surface, according to NASA. This Jupiter moon is constantly re-forming its surface through volcanic eruptions, even to this day. Io's volcanism results from strong gravitational encounters between Jupiter and two of its large moons, Europa and Ganymede, which shake up Io's insides.

    Rosaly Lopes, a senior research scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, managed observations of Io between 1996 and 2001, during the Galileo spacecraft mission to Jupiter.

    "Io has lots of caldera-like features, but they are on the surface," Lopes told Live Science. "There are lots of lava flows and lots of lakes. Lava lakes are pretty rare on Earth. We have half a dozen of them. We think they have occurred in the past on Venus and Mars. But on Io, we actually see lava lakes at the present time." Hawaii's Kilauea volcano is one such spot on Earth dotted with lava lakes.

    Juno scientists asked for Lopes' help in identifying Io's newly found hotspot. She said the new observations of Io are welcome, because Galileo was in an equatorial orbit and could rarely see the poles; by contrast, Juno is in a polar orbit and has a much better view. There are some hints that Io might have larger and less-frequent eruptions at the poles, she said, but scientists need more observations to be sure.

    Venus and Mars volcanoes are all right tonight
    Venus also appears to have active lava flows on its surface, where temperatures reach more than 800 degrees Fahrenheit (425 degrees Celsius). The few Soviet Venera spacecraft that landed there in the 1970s and 1980s lasted only a short while. Lopes said it's unclear if Venus has active volcanoes currently, although multiple observations from Europe's past Venus Express mission suggested it might. One example is Idunn Mons, which is a hotspot that may have erupted relatively recently.

    Venus has dome volcanoes, or volcanoes with lots of peaks, although these volcanoes might be inactive. This kind of volcano is also common on Earth. A dome volcano is formed from eruptions of viscous (sticky) lava, with only a small percentage of gas that oozes out.

    "Volcanologists call it two-face lava, because it hides itself and oozes out," Lopes said. Mount St. Helens, in Washington state, is one such example, with several of these lava domes dotting its crater. Venus is also populated with other types of volcanoes and volcanic features - pancake domes (which look like pancakes), arachnoids (eroded calderas that look like spiders), lava flows and volcanic plains.

    Venus and Mars also have shield volcanoes, a type of volcano made up almost entirely of fluid lava flows. (Shield volcanoes are common on Earth, in Hawaii in particular, Lopes said.) Mars possesses the highest volcano in the solar system - Olympus Mons - and several other monster volcanoes, perhaps because its gravity is lighter than Earth's and the volcanoes can grow taller.

    On Mars, the volcanoes appear to be dormant, as there are no visible recent lava flows on the surface. There's extensive evidence of past volcanism, though. There are flood plains of basalts, as well as other types of volcanoes that "were formed by more explosive volcanism, because they are highly eroded on the flanks," Lopes said.

    Other worlds in our solar system also had lava volcanism in the ancient past, including Earth's moon, Mercury and the dwarf planet Ceres, Lopes said. And then there are worlds with possible cryovolcanism - or icy volcanoes - in which the erupting material is water, or water mixed with nitrogen or methane.

    There is evidence of active plumes at Jupiter's moon Europa and Saturn's moon Enceladus. Saturn's moon Titan may also have past cryovolcanic features on its surface, Lopes' research has found. Other worlds with possible cryovolcanism include Triton (Neptune's largest moon), Pluto, and Charon (Pluto's largest moon).

    As I was mentioning in post 397, the Haboob can strike.

    Phoenix has been getting it, the massive storms that occlude the light, turn day into night, and get that dust into everything:



    Here is the official page on them:

    https://ein.az.gov/hazards/dust-storms
    Thunderstorms frequently produce strong downward rushes of air called microbursts that spread out along the ground and spread dense blowing dust called “haboobs.”

    Haboobs (also called dust storms) are unexpected, unpredictable and can sweep across Arizona's desert landscape at any time. You can endure these brief but powerful windstorms if you know how to react.

    I haven't noticed anything unusual, we get Sahara dust every year... today was exceptionally sunny, but I didn't look long distance. I'll see if I notice anything tomorrow.. either way the dust storm seems to be pretty minimal as far as density.

    Snow during a heatwave? Mysterious weather strikes Italy with 30cm 'snow blanket' amid 35ºC
    5 August, 2018

    A MYSTERIOUS ice blast covered an Italian island in a 30cm-deep 'snow blanket' after the temperatures suddenly plunged yesterday from 35ºC to 12ºC despite a record-breaking heatwave across the continent.

    Europe looks set to experience its hottest temperatures on record later today while a bizarre hailstorm and 22ºC plunge in temperature hit Italy.

    The Italian island of Sardinia was experiencing a sweltering heatwave along with the rest of Europe when the bizarre ice blast took place on Thursday this week.

    Witnesses described a "snow blanket" on the roads, just minutes after a sweltering 35ºC heatwave.



    The violent hailstorm was caught on camera by drivers on the Strada 131 in Campeda, Sardinia, prompting dozens of requests to emergency services.

    The sudden hailstorm caused transport chaos for some motorists, including an accident between two cars.

    The cold temperature blast was also felt in nearby towns, including Mamoiada, Sorgono and Tonara.

    Flash flooding struck the nearby region of Nuorese, with emergency services called out to empty water from flooded basements.

    Mayors and traffic wardens have been at work since to restore road conditions in the affected zones.

    Despite this week's ice blast, the Italian island is back to scorching temperatures of 28ºC today.

    This comes amid predictions that the scorching heatwave in Europe will the continent's all-time record temperatures today, with 50ºC expected in Portugal and Spain.

    Weather centres in Spain and Portugal have issued "extreme risk" warnings, after three people were found dead from heatstroke in the past 24 hours.

    The temperatures have continued through the night, with temperatures above 30ºC even at midnight in Spain.

    Viewers online describe the weather videos in Sardinia as "unbelievable" while others claimed "the end was near" due to the bizarre weather.

    And how about this. This is in ECUADOR. Go figure. (This happened at quite a high altitude, but it's still almost unheard of here. Although I regularly hike in mountain areas higher than this road, I've not seen a snowflake since I left Switzerland in 2011. )
    Snow storm snarls traffic near Quito
    5 August, 2018

    An unexpected snow storm stranded at least 50 vehicles, including inter-provincial buses, Saturday on the highway connecting Quito with Papallacta. The national weather service said the storm affected about 10 kilometers of roadway in Napo Province at elevations of 3,800 meters and higher. Emergency personnel from ECU 911, the Ecuador Red Cross and the Quito fire department assisted trapped motorists and bus passengers during the day, transporting several who were injured in accidents to area hospitals.


    Traffic came to a standstill Saturday on the highway from Quito to Papallacta.

    As of Saturday night, the highway from Palugo to Papallacta and Papallacta to Baeza remained closed and transit police advised motorists to divert south and take the Ambato-Baños highways to reach the Amazon region. Snowfall amounts in the affected area ranged from five to 17 centimeters.

    Just to make it clear, this is hail, not snow. Heavy hail storms can occur any time of year in Europe, but quite commonly in the summer with thunder when it's very hot. I've seen it myself. It almost looks like snow (especially in a photograph), but the meteorological cause is quite different. It soon melts.

    can you site another equatable event?

    has it ever been a 30cm thick blanket over this large of an area? (hint's of the coming global cooling period, more likely I think....)

    It's exceptionally hazy today (was over cast the past few days); visibility is probably at 20-30 miles (cannot see St Thomas (40 miles away) or PR (80 miles away)).

    Some people are having mild reactions to the dust, but a bit of benadryl to manage the histamine reactions seems all that is needed.... everything inside my house is coated with a light dusting (or heavy dusting.. if I haven't cleaned the area in a while, haha).

    Yes. A quick google showed this in Alberta this July. And another in Cyprus. Unusual, but certainly not unprecedented and nothing to do with extraordinary cold in the summer.

    I have seen hail up to two inches deep after summer storms in the UK three or four times in the past 50 years. The ambient temperature is always well above freezing. It is not snow and any meteorologist (there must be some on here) will tell you that the formation of snow requires completely different conditions to that of hail; hail can form at any time of the year. Snow requires freezing or near freezing conditions high up and also at ground level.

    So since it's not snow or freezing temperatures causing these summer events, I can't see 'global cooling' being relevant here.

    I meant examples out side of this year.

    And upper atmospheric cooling would seem logical in an over all atmosphere change, it may be the first/best place to measure change as it's less effected by the pockets and valleys that can store heat energy closer to the surface.

    Just speculating.

    The haze (suspended dust particles) is pretty bad.

    smoke and sand would buffer heat losses (trap more heat)..... interesting that this is happening as we seem to be going into a cooling period, coincidence?

    You would think ... but it is my direct observation that at least on a local scale, that heavy smoke reflects heat upward before it can be trapped. I vacationed in BC last summer and half the province was on fire and smoke was as thick as pea soup in places. The heavier the smoke, the much longer it took for the day to come up to forecast temperature or the cooler the overall day was compared to clearer days.

    I have experienced the same this year as well (more wildfires and more smoke) and the smokey days are cooler for certain, as the suns heat can't get through. We reached an all time record high today in Calgary 38C (100F - yeah it normally doesn't get into the extremes here much but this is record for us) and the day was a bit slow to heat because of the smoke this morning. I wonder what we may have hit in the absence of smoke ... ?


    I think back to the grounding of all the planes in the world after Sept 11th and how for those three days the average earth temperature rose a few degrees - in just three days. The effects of flying commercial planes (either from plain old contrails or of weather manipulating plane flights) seems to actually be keeping global temperatures cool ... the smoke could be, or perhaps "thought" to be an additional way to keep these extremes from happening. I'm not sure I take the extremes of conspiracy that far, but it holds a little logic.

    That said, if heat does get trapped under the smoke, say if the smoke exists longer term (months / years), it could in the long run eventually warm cooler spots on earth (eventually trap heat and diffuse colder areas of the planet), which lends some credence to your thought. But I still think mostly the opposite would be true in most conditions - that this smoke may help facilitate an overall cooling.

    Is the smoke (from wildfires) being "used" (created) to help attempt to keep out heat (fight "climate change") ... or, perhaps <insert conspiracy theory> purposely, to instigate a coming "cooling"?


    As far as the video above goes, the "dust" is mostly all smoke. B.C. wildfires burned a record number of hectares last year, the previous year was just about as bad, and this year is looking really bad as well. But much of the smoke we are getting in Canada is from Siberian wildfires. You can see in the satellite photos clearly that huge amounts of smoke are blowing straight from Siberia into Canada on the jet stream. Not to mention, have you seen western USA's wildfire maps this year? The Siberian wildfires are the worst in 10,000 years they say.

    I'm not sure when this "ice age" is coming, but it appears not until well after we experience more time with extremes in heat - at least in selected areas. The northern hemisphere seems to be getting it good this year, as we did the last couple.

    And to add to Nicks comment above, yes hail, not snow. There hasn't been snow in Alberta since April (and we got a LOT of it then). but we have had some extreme hail conditions ...

    This "hill" is about a mile away from where I took this picture today on my way back from lunch:

    I'm going to revise my visibility rating, apparently it's about 6 miles currently.

    The haze (suspended dust particles) is pretty bad.

    Wow ... clear compared to here. I can't even see downtown towers from my office at all this week. Downtown is only about a mile or so away ... Last year this was almost the norm - as we got a lot of smoke from the BC wildfires. This year the Siberian wildfires are definitely adding to the mix.

    I had no clue what that meant, so I looked it up.

    RSOE EDIS = The Hungarian National Association of Radio Distress-Signalling and Infocommunications (RSOE), which operates the Emergency and Disaster Information Service (EDIS).

    Was speaking with my neighbor today, he said he's having respitory issues and I've been sick all weekend ,sinuses ,fever, now it's in my chest, and it's 90 degrees out during the day. I,m looking at the sky now as the sun sets and it's an orange haze, i,m thinking it's the smoke from the fires out West. I saw a flow map on Saturday of that smoke traveling east and were right in the bullseye of the smoke travels.
