Deplume, I don't think you are being daft. I am on the west coast of North America and I am making the same observations as in your original post.
Researching these observations is actually why I registered for ATS.
Sure it is a beautiful sunny day here today and the Sun is in full view, but this is a breakthrough after weeks of un-seasonal gloom. Everyone here
is talking about the weather. Last weekend was miserable, the wettest wet of rainforest wet.
I saw the same old activity in the sky here earlier today, they tried to block the sun but they couldn't break through the high pressure and dry air,
or whatever conditions weren't right. I believe their methods are crude and they are playing mad scientist with our planet. It is a daily occurrence
on the westcoast, (I will not argue this point. I know and while I'd rather you agreed, I'm not the one who is going to convince you.) trapping the
moisture from the Pacific while it is forced against the coastal mountains and falls as rain. Meanwhile the east is suffering from heat and fire.
I believe the sun is changing as it always has. I am too lazy to provide research but anyone with search engine skills and a reading vocabulary can
identify published papers discussing the earth climate which recognize that the sun drives our climate and that of the other planets in our solar
system. Even from as far back as the 1930s. Also papers establishing that the sun's radiance is variable and is affected by the inter-stellar
conditions of the galaxy as our heliosphere travels through it.
I carry a welding lens in my purse and I view the sun whenever I can. I have been paying attention, maybe too much attention. I work in applied
natural science, often outside, and I've been taking daily notes. While it may seem sunny out the window, the sky is whitened from aerosols and the
sun is usually at least partially blocked The day may be bright, warm and dry, but that doesn't mean there aren't c-words in front of the sun. (I
hear they scan for the c-words, lol.)
I'm not an eager poster, but I just wanted to stick my two cents in to support others like Deplume who are making the same observations as I. I'm
going to quickly hit reply before I delete it all, lol.
