Here is a website called .....SunWise /US EPA.Gov
www.epa.gov...

I'm posting it so that you can personally check out the UV in your own town by your zip code .. pretty cool
they have this .. right now mine is at UV level 9
that’s really high .. and who says the sun doesn’t affect us people ???? is off sun blinded lol

They also have a UV index for kids ..

ahahahahaha! Prove it! I really think its funny when people say the Sun does not do anything at all to Earth. Saying it does not have anything to do with our Weather is really the funniest thing I have heard all day! Thanks!

The activity of the Sun does have an effect on the Earth's weather, although it is normally imperceptible. The Sun's energy is what drives our climate. Greater than normal solar activity can increase the amount of solar radiation reaching the Earth. Therefore, a prolonged period of change of the energy reaching the Earth would result in a change in climate. Because of the immensity of the atmosphere and the huge mass of the Earth itself, short term changes in the energy from the Sun are rarely perceptible in the climate.

I was thinking the same thing and how dumb to think that the sun does not do anything to our earth..

I said to my self ..... Whaaaaat are you thinking ????????

ok i won go into all the details cuz I don’t want the firing squad attacking me about how we seem to disagree .. this is so funny .. I just had to say this .. I don’t agree and of course the sun has a lot to do with the earth..

Alrighty... now that I can think again, I can stop being short and evasive. A quick (in fact, very quick - 0.28 second) Google search lead immediately to the following article:

Cycles of Solar Flares and Weather

To quote from the article:


A large flare can release energy equivalent to the explosion of more than ten million hydrogen bombs in a feu minutes' time. Momentary temperatures exceed twenty million K, hotter than in the dense core of the Sun (Eddy, 1979). The small fraction of the energy of such flares, that the Earth intercepts, is adequate to generate striking effects in the upper atmosphere. These effects are produced by the ultraviolet, x-ray, and energetic particle emissions from flares and other eruptions, and not by an appreciable change in the overall output of the Sun, which at most reaches one thousandth of 1%. None the less, single energetic eruptions and periods of enhanced flare activity seem to be related to weather.



As observed by Reiter (1979c) and Cobb (1967), a sharp increase in air-Earth current density occurs on flare days. The departure from normal lasts three to five days. Accordingly, Bossolasco et al. (1972) and Muir (1979) found a 70^ variation of thunderstorm incidence with the occurrence of solar flares. Harkson (1979) developed a model that shous hou flare induced variations in electric fields and ionizing radiation can control cloud electrification, rainfall, and circulation by the redistribution of energy already present within the atmosphere. Schuurmans (1979) could demonstrate that strong flares cause atmospheric circulation changes or variations in mass and temperature distribution at middle and high latitudes, starting within 6 to 12 hours after the flare and lasting approximately one day. Zerefos (1975) obtained similar results.


That pretty much sums it up. The sun's solar flares seem to have an observable affect on weather patterns - especially those in the mid and upper atmosphere. Can't say I'm surprised... I did allow for the possibility.

Starred and flagged the thread for your post alone. Great site and an excellent one for me to help the kids stay safer from the harmful rays of the sun.

It is currently 100 F here in eastern NC, not including the heat index.......OMG is it hot. I cant remember in the last 15 years it being that hot in MAY!!!!!!

ANd as far as the flare, as long as it is not an X class, we should be alright


Thanks for posting the heads up, internet slow down is a bummer!

Cool EPA index site! I wonder if it's always 10 in my area...it says to wear a hat and sunscreen. How am I gonna get my daily Vit D?

EPA says we should get l our Vit D from VIt supplements.

Solar activity is lower today than yesterday, but the respite may be temporary. Big sunspot 1226 still harbors energy for M-class solar flares.

*woot woot* not a threat really...just m class flares

It will be very easy to blame any power grid "hits" on the heat (and the drawing of extra power) and not the solar flares...

I was telling my family and friends about NC's temps yesterday...I heard that the heat index was 115.

Here in Memphis temps are 96-98 all week, heat indexes past 100.

Well I generally have a very solid internet connection but about four hours ago it was horribly slow and then when out over and over for the next 30 minutes. Not sure if it was related but thought I'd report.

I'm in the SE as well and the heat about an hour ago just went off the charts. I was sitting in my room in the dark and I just started feeling it, the heat, going up my spine. I went and checked and sure enough the heat pump is no longer able to keep up and the temp in the house went up 5 degrees in less than an hour. I put something up over the window to give some relief but sheesh its hot.

Alright, I need to be fair here and clear this one up for Phage.


Here's what he actually was saying back on page 2




I didn't say the Sun does not affect weather. It is the primary driver of weather.

I said solar flares do not affect weather. The total energy released by the most powerful flares is a small fraction of the total energy released by the Sun every second.

If a flare "reached out and barbecued" any part of the Earth I would not have the same opinion. But, besides the fact that solar flares don't "reach out", that hasn't happened. Or did I miss hearing about it?


Quoted from here

Hope that helps!

I'm getting a solar filter for my 8" dobsonian from UPS today. Can't wait to check this out


Sorry to disappoint you, but you won't see solar flares with a cheap solar filter (Baader type), with that you will be only able to see sun-spots. To see solar flares you need a solar telescope with a Ha-filter. You can look and drool here : www.luntsolarsystems.com...

The same one I learned it from, I'm guessing: the textbook of Common Sense and General Knowledge.
Solar flares barely make a dent in the magnetosphere, let alone have any affect on the weather.



Common sense and general knowledge?

First- That is no kind of answer to the guy’s question.

Second - Common sense and general knowledge tell me that if something is coming from the sun it is going to be hot. Now if someone who actually studies the sun (especially Phage) says that this is not going to be hot even though it is coming from the sun, well I guess I will have to believe him.

edit on 31-5-2011 by president because: grammar and speeling


no sir, you DONT HAVE to believe him

you can check it out for yourself and make sure hes not misleading you for his own agenda

to blindly follow anyones words, even the words of einstein would be ignorant (to be clear to BLINDLY without question follow einstein would be ignorant)



Now how in the hell will I "just check it out" for myself?

Are you suggesting that I interpret the temperature readings from some satellite?
Are you suggesting that I believe the readouts from that satellite are accurate and not contaminated by some outside presence?

Of course I will have to take someone’s word on this subject.
Even the guy that interprets the data has to take the word of the satellite builder. Lest he uses a piece of equipment that he only thinks works.

And of course I believe satellites work the way they are explained to. I am simply saying interpreting satellite data about solar flares and coronial mass ejections is not common sense.
"Common sense" sounds like, "The sun is hot."

Interesting article, supposing a causative effect between the orbits of the planets and solar activity.

I can't locate the only reference in the article which would seem to provide documented evidence (Bossolasco 1972). The quote from Roberts (1979) is from the "Proceedings of a Symposium/Workshop" which is not available. The rest seem to be theoretical work rather than direct evidence. All of the references date from the 1970's and early 1980's. For a topic which would seem to be of great scientific interest in the global warming debate, direct evidence seems to be lacking.
