I have been researching (just started) the affect of the suns solar flares/cmes/geomagnetic storms etc and see if they affect the earths climate.
Now i live in England(UK) and the weather here is so wierd i mean yesterday i was sunbathing in the garden with my lass from 11-4pm (look like a lobster now mind you!) the sky was perfectly clear just nice and blue although it was extremely humid! We had something to eat and around 7-8 pm it starts raining extremely hard for about 20mins then stops then starts raining around 11pm till god knows when.
What the hells going on! This is England were not used to all this extreme heat then raining we just dont get enough time to acclimatise just give us one or the other please!!!
Also here is a table about which types of space weather can affect earth
If you dont want to read through it all then heres a short version
Change in solar irradiance contribute to global warming
Sunspots MAYBE contributing
WOW just found this...
SUNSPOT WATCH: Sunspot 649, which unleashed five X-class solar flares in July, has returned, and it's growing again. Witness this 3-day (Aug. 6th - 8th) animation from the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory:
Sunspot 649 is the one on the left. If the active region continues to develop, it could soon pose a renewed threat for strong solar flares.
Also if you look at the chances of m and x-ray solar flares they keep going up everyday! Also on www.spaceweather.com
The 7th of august was hot but the 8th was even hotter in England now is this coincidence? Anyone else notice weather changes from the 6th august to the 8th?

there have been cicadas everywhere around here. usually you just hear them, and never find them. well i've been finding them! a couple in the cars, and a few in the basement. what would be driving the bugs to get places they shouldn't get? we can't figure out how they got into the basement. they'd have to fly in one of the doors, and then we'd see a giant bug flying around the house. it's just weird. any ideas anyone?
