Hi everyone. I'm not here to blister people's goats with a deep fried theory, nor am I here to cause mass panty attacks from f3vr Mongering.

I would however like to point out some relevant facts about (Part 1) the Sun and it's relationship to Earth's processes, as well as bring to light (Part 2) what Scientists both believe could occur and have a geologic record of events that HAVE occured, and then (Part 3) we'll take a look at the sun as it has evolved from June 2009 to the present Day... June 26, 2010.

Part 1: The Sun's Relationship to Earth's Processes



Besides the obvious things the Sun provides for the Earth, such as Light, Heat, and Photosynthetic nutrients, it affects this planet in other ways. It creates changes
on Earth at every spheraic level of it's existance, except for one, which is what has been proven to be the key to why mankind evolved and remains alive upon this planet: Earth's solid Iron Core.

Solar Mass Coronal Ejections (C.M.E.) are what cause the negative effects of the Sun upon Earth's processes, as they affect Earth's spheraical balances, much more
so with an increased C.M.E. Intensity Level.

C.M.E. Events arrive upon Earth at different time intervals, according to how fast certain elements involved in the C.M.E. travel. some travel faster than others.

Lets look at these aspects and find out what they do.

the Layers of the Earth

Proton Events:

Energetic protons can reach Earth within 30 minutes of a major flare's peak. During such an event, Earth is showered with energetic solar particles (primarily
protons) released from the flare site. Some of these particles spiral down Earth's magnetic field lines, penetrating the upper layers of our atmosphere where they produce additional ionization (Ionosphere, Thermosphere) and may produce a significant increase in the radiation environment. It is speculated that this event also includes Nutrinos, which are still being researched as to how they affect the Earth. It is speculated that Nutrinos - which travel directly through the Earth and it's core, instead of around it - have an affect similar to a Microwave Oven, and can quickly cause Earth's Outer Core as well as the asthenosphere to heat up. This isn't good...

The outer core of Earth is a scorching hot, electrically conductive liquid in which convection takes place. This inner layer, in mutual combination with the rotational motion of the Earth creates a dynamo effect where a force field of electrical currents is generated. This field is also known as Earth's magnetic field.

Geomagnetic Storms

One to four days after a Solar C.M.E., a slower cloud of material and magnetic fields reaches Earth, buffeting the magnetosphere and resulting in a
geomagnetic storm. These storms are extraordinary variations in Earth's surface magnetic field. During a geomagnetic storm, portions of the solar wind's energy
is transferred to the magnetosphere, causing Earth's magnetic field to change rapidly in direction and intensity and energize the particle populations within it.

These events disrupt electrical and electronic processes, both artificial as well as biological, as they exist upon Earth. The more intense the C.M.E., the more the
affect it will have on these processes.

Part 2: the Science Behind the Reasoning



Scientists have begun to understand that the Magnetic balance of the Earth can become disrupted very easily, which is not good for us, as fragile humans...

The theory of Earth Crust Displacement is more and more now, even on a daily basis, becomming a COLD, HARD FACT... Pole Shifts, or even partial Shifts, create Earthquakes of a magnitude unfathomed as of yet, cause volcanic eruptions we only have geologic records of, and cause tsunami activity on such a massive scale, the best way to describe the intensity of them is to reveal to you the evidence...

Fossils in the tens of thousands, of CLOSED giant clam shells, have been discovered literally litering Mt. Everest, and adjoining Mountains. What's significant about that is that the only reason clam Shells close is due to the clam becomming iritated, or disturbed somehow, otherwise they would have been open, single shell fossils. These disturbed Clam fossils have been discovered as deposited on the highest point on Earth...

These events become a global ordeal, durring a Magnetic Pole Shift, which causes Earth Crust Displacement.

Part 3: What the Sun is Doing Now




SOHO observed a series of coronal mass ejections blasted out from the Sun over a 6-day period (June 11-16, 2010). Although none of them was a major storm, they did explode into space about once a day. And that pace suggests an
uptick in solar activity. Coronal mass ejections are solar storms that carry clouds of particles and magnetic field into space. In these coronagraph images, the Sun (represented by the small white circle in the center) is blocked out by the larger occulting disk so that we can see the faint structures in the corona.

Great thread buddy
S&F


I think the two most hazardous natural bodies that possess the means to ruin the Earth are:

1. Us/Humans.
2. The Sun.

The old Mayan prediction about our doom by "Fire from the Sky" is starting to like mighty true with our soon finally deciding to show its true colours and all.

Two more years fellas, just Two more years and we will find out.

I dont know, i perceive the Sun as a benevolent being which would never do any harm, after all it literally gives its live away so we and everything else may live.

Greetings Chad! thanks for posting.

My inclusion of the Earthquake data was to emphasize a relationship with our sun in relation to Earth Crust Displacement - the real topic of this post.

While a correlation to a direct C.M.E. to Earthquake / Volcanic Eruption link won't show inevitable cause and effect of the nature of that relationship, I think that it's safe to say that the 'tremors' caused by the interaction of a C.M.E. to Magnetosphere pressurization can, and in my opinion DO create magnetically intolerant pressures on Earth's Outer Core, which will then create the pressures that cause fault lines to slip, strike, or even magmatic batholiths to expand and crack open a new surface opening, to release said pressures.

Crust Displacement has occured in our past, and scientifically speaking, C.M.E. 's (Which are believed to be the cause of these displacements) have an affect on techtonic movements as well.

It's actually quite logical to state such, and given some research into such it's my whole hearted belief that it will prove just as viable as "Crust Displacement".

It seems you have showed us just the info that will make all the doomsayers latch on to this thread.

What about showing us all the Big Earthquakes and Volcanic activity that has happened when there have been no Sunspots/CME's etc?

What about showing us that the previous Solar Cycle 23 which peaked in the early 2000's was much stronger than Solar cycle 24 is expected to be when it peaks NO EARLIER THAN MAY 2013 (nothing to do with 2012 or Mayans in any way)

What about showing us all the evidence that Earthquakes/Volcanic activity/Harmful effects on Earth in General was greater during Solar cycle 23 , which was much stronger than 24 is to be?

What about showing us how the Title of your thread actually fits to what Solar Cycle 24 will be? "A Perfect Storm" implies some kind of extraordinary events that culminate in something that is way more large and destructive than normal, when actually it is stated in your own sources that it will be less of a Cycle than average.

Please provide the evidence you use for these claims. Tectonic activity can be considered crustal displacement but I know of no evidence that any overall and rapid crustal movement has ever occurred or that such movement was caused by coronal mass ejections or that tectonic activity is affected by them either.

The strength of Earth's magnetic field at the earth's surface is at its strongest near the poles and at its weakest near the equator. At the poles its strength is over 60 microteslas and at the equator its about half that. For a comparison, a refrigerator magnet (a strong one) has a strength of .01 tesla, more that 160 times more powerful than the Earth's field at the poles. At the peak of a recent geomagnetic storm the magnetometer at Boulder, Colorado recorded a fluctuation of about 125 nanoteslas. That is .125 microteslas, 1/480th of the strength of the magnetic field at the equator and 80,000 times less powerful than that refrigerator magnet.

The actual magnetic fluctuations produced by a geomagnetic storm are minuscule. But there is another problem. The Earth's outer core is thought to consist of liquid iron and nickel. It is the movement of this material which drives the dynamo which maintains Earth's magnetic field. Liquid iron is very hot, far hotter than the Curie point. Above the Curie point, it is not affected by magnetism. How can fluctuations in the magnetosphere affect it? Even if it did, there are thousands of miles of material (the mantle) between the outer core and the crust. How can movement of the outer core (which is occurring on an ongoing basis) affect the crust?

It took me approximately 3 days to compile this information that I have provided. The information you request of me:

1: Is based upon a speculation that Solar Cycle 24 will be milder than 23 - so far, it has shown to be just the opposite - so much so that NASA recently called a meeting with scientific and community leaders to discuss the potential that SC 24 may indeed actually get very intense as it nears it's maximum... so intense it could cause billions of dollars in damage to Earth's technological electronic and electrical critical infrastructure, and set mankind back about 10 years technologically...

(sound like any other CME stories we've heard about?)

2. is based upon comparing a Solar Cycle that has not run it's course yet to the previously OBSERVED one - which is impossible, but... I think you know that. =

BTW - this thread has nothing to do with the 2012 doomsday crowd - it has EVERYTHING to do with the science, and available factual observation.

I've got one two-part question for crustal displacement enthusiasts that should help diffuse any worries anyone has about it.

1a. How much force would it take to move all of Earth's crust at once?
1b. Where does this force come from?

Two me these would be the two most basic facts to investigate. Once you know how much force it takes to do a, you can see if a solar flare could do it. This is the logic I use to dismiss crustal displacement out of hand, because no crustal displacement theorists can answer this question.

There's nothing in the PDF I could find about any crustal displacement. Could you quote it or direct me to it? In fact it talks about there being less volcanic activity during a time of geomagnetic reversal.

so far, it has shown to be just the opposite


Show me the figures to show that cycle 24 has been stronger than 23.

The Sun is fairly quiet considering it should be well on the way to the next solar max. One only has to look back at the space Weather archives from the previous solar cycles to see that the activity then was way more than it is just now.

Very good thread. S&F. I have been reading quite a bit concerning pole and crust shifts lately including a very long presentation of many facts concerning the very same. I can't remember the details of who was the presenter off the top of my head. I'll have to go dig but between your thread here and what he had put together it seems that this could very well be possible! Thanks again for the info!

P.S. It would also help explain why certain elites would be buying up land at extremely high altitudes and the CIA and NORTHCOM moved their headquarters to Denver despite the fact that DC is the hub of politics in our country?...

The prediction for solar cycle 24 is not based on what happened during the prior solar maximum. There is a lot more to it than that.

There is greater concern about the upcoming solar maximum not because it is expected to be particularly intense but because we are now more vulnerable to the effects of geomagnetic storms than we ever have been due to our dependence on satellites and our power systems.

We have no ability to predict the timing or intensity of solar activity which may lead to geomagnetic storms. While there is more solar activity during solar maximum, and thus greater probability of an intense storm, such a storm can happen at any time during the cycle. It could happen next week, next year, or not for 100 years.



[@ Phage]

previously recorded Crust Displacements - one of them at least - is documented in the above PDF link entitled "Revisiting the Jurassic geomagnetic reversal"


That article is talking about a geomagnetic reversal. That is not the same thing as a crustal displacement (by a long shot). Geomagnetic reversals have occurred many times in Earth's history but there is no evidence that they involve crustal displacement, are caused by CMEs, or that they occur suddenly (in human terms). From your source:

Considering that the reversal is recorded over a thickness of some 150 m and that the mean duration for field reversal is of the order of 5000–6000 yr (Kristjansson 1985), the eruption of the Lesotho Basalt might have lasted for some 50 000 yr or so.

The electromagnetic pressures constricting Earth's magnetosphere is what causes the geomagnetic reversal. These pressures arrise by way of Mass Coronal Ejecta from the Sun.

[edit to add] I originally asked you to provide an alternative to the causes of geomagnetic reversal with this sentence. I found an alternative reason why all this excited ideology points to CME events as a cause for alarm.

I'm sure that if anyone would be aware of this phenomina it would be Phage... so here it is, The cause of the alarmist sensationalisms involving an increase incatastrophic awareness, events, and idealism...

Strong evidence exists that these transformations are being caused by highly charged material and energetic non-uniformity's in anisotropic interstellar space which have broken into the interplanetary area of our Solar System. This "donation" of energy is producing hybrid processes and excited energy states in all planets, as well as the Sun. Effects here on Earth are to be found in the acceleration of the magnetic pole shift, in the vertical and horizontal ozone content distribution, and in the increased frequency and magnitude of significant catastrophic climatic events. There is growing probability that we are moving into a rapid temperature instability period similar to the one that took place 10,000 years ago. The adaptive responses of the biosphere, and humanity, to these new conditions may lead to a total global revision of the range of species and life on Earth. It is only through a deep understanding of the fundamental changes taking place in the natural environment surrounding us that politicians, and citizens a like, will be able to achieve balance with the renewing flow of PlanetoPhysical states and processes.

INTRODUCTION

Current, in process, geological, geophysical, and climatical alterations of the Earth are becoming more, and more, irreversible. At the present time researchers are revealing some of the causes which are leading to a general reorganization of the electro-magnetosphere (the electromagnetic skeleton) of our planet, and of its climatic machinery. A greater number of specialists in climatology, geophysics, planetophysics, and heliophysics are tending towards a cosmic causative sequence version for what is happening. Indeed, events of the last decade give strong evidence of unusually significant heliospheric and planetophysic transformations [1,2]. Given the quality, quantity, and scale of these transformations we may say that:

The climatic and biosphere processes here on Earth (through a tightly connected feedback system) are directly impacted by, and linked back to, the general overall transformational processes taking place in our Solar System. We must begin to organize our attention and thinking to understand that climatic changes on Earth are only one part, or link, in a whole chain of events taking place in our Heliosphere.
