I see a picture of "light pillars". Not a change.
I see pictures of Undulatus asperatus clouds. It is often misleadingly described as a new type of cloud. It is no more "new" than cirrus intortus was
when it was given a separate classification
in 1951. They have been photographed by
Margaret LeMone for at least 30 years.
Aurora have been happening for a long time, yes with spirals.
From Bob Young, who traveled with Admiral Byrd in 1933
There was an extra fine Spiral Aurora display, with gorgeous coloured flickering curtains hanging down from it.
A hole punch cloud. Not new.
A Sun halo? Really? Not new.
Mammatus clouds. Not new.
Roll cloud. Not new.
Iridescent clouds. Not new except for the one in the rocket trail.
Sink hole? Not new.
Nothing new there (only one "Earth change", the sinkhole). The only thing that's changed is the internet makes it easier to get people to panic over
things they have never personally experienced.
Yes, CO2 levels have risen but there isn't much reason to think it has anything to do with a comet.
I guess I miss your point with Stephan Hawking an Brittany Spears. What do they have to do with "Earth Changes".
Yes, there are solar cycles. Number 24 is turning out to have a very low level of activity. Number 23 was quite a bit more interesting.
