This guy isn't always correct,
...isn't mostly correct....guesses wildly....has no system that is based on fact....depends on coincidence
but he's a lot of the time spot on with the areas of interest and warnings which he concludes upon based upon connection to coronal holes,
solar wind speeds and arrivals, and the times at which such CME(s) spike up on the magnetosphere.
Well (1) when you cite Chile, Mid-Atlantic ridge, Ecuador, New Zealand, Tonga etc as possible areas you are pretty darn sure to be right most of the
time. It is bit like saying "there will be seismic events in California" or "tomorrow there will be an earthquake in the ring of fire". These people
are all the same. I gave up proving the cali site wrong as it happened every day - got a bit boring really.
(2) As muzzy stated we have looked at this before and there is no discernible correlation between coronal holes and seismic events. In fact it is
often quieter in high solar activity times.
Now I am always happy to be proved wrong so if you can show the connections then I would be very happy to take a look, even if only because logically
in an electric universe there should be some effect one might expect. I would also like someone to explain just how this can trigger earthquakes.
Sorry but "OMG a CME! There will be a Mag 8" does not cut it. I need reasons why this might be.
During these times you can see a "hot spot" diagram of Earth, so to speak, of which I've witnessed increased seismic activity of these
locations a good few times during strong solar winds and stronger earth-directed flares or erupting magnetic filaments and other areas of the
I am not saying you have not seen this increase, but can you substantiate it? Unfortunately I do not have time to cover all the areas I would like to
cover so it would be useful if someone else could keep track of these and see if there is in fact a connection. The person on YT is not researching
anything. He just has a bee in his bonnet and depends on apparent synchronicity due to happenstance. In that video he admitted nothing occurred - with
The earth's activity, whe Sun, it's cycles, sunspots and coronal holes should be one of the main things taught in junior and high school. What
did I get back then? Dinosaurs for a year or two, Math, old Canadian cultures, some useful weather courses, chemistry, physics, and my favourite:
Earth Systems, which did get into seismology a little and a lot of other useful information surrounding plate tectonics, of which at the time I was
fairly interested in but if I had my time back I would be right into it.
Now what is the point of teaching anything about the Sun when we know it has nothing to do with the systems on the Earth
It's a lot more tangible than with the Moon. The moon doesn't emit this volley of radiation and strong flares in an earth-facing
No, it just bends the crust by up to 55mm twice a day. Do solar flares do that?
