    Default Huge Sunspots

    Go to and catch the latest news on the two
    giant 'Jupiter sized' sunspots which are crossing the sun's

    The kind of activity going on is precisely the kind of activity that if
    increased several fold could easily trigger the onset of a rapid
    magnetic pole reversal sequence for the Earth.

    Mankind must be prepared to face the horror story of all of the violent
    and rapid geological changes which must ensue as a function of a mode
    change of the Earth's Electromagnetotoroid (EMT) from the large scale E
    loop mode which displays the features of a magnetic dipole to the H
    loop mode which will display the features of a large scale electric

    Wrong. This kind of activity has been happening for centuries. It has little
    if any effect on the internally-generated portion of the Earth's magnetic
    field. A strong geomagnetic storm will cause variations in the measured
    strength of the field up here, but down inside the Earth, the effects of the
    storm will be negligable.

    Ah, yes, another fear monger (you wouldn't be related to a certain "Cagle" now
    would you?).

    That's not true. These are unusually big sunspots. And as I stated
    'if increased several fold' then there would be cause for concern.

    Utter blustery nonsense. In fact, the dynamics of the generation of
    the Earth's magnetic field is not known by the general community of
    geophysicists. Even less is known about the processes which cause a
    dipole reversal sequence to begin to take place. For you to stand
    forth and pontificate otherwise is dishonest as well as irresponsible.
    I've spent years studying the physics of flux loop structures, the
    mechanism for their generation and have discovered the mechanism for
    the mode change of one type of flux loop into the other. You don't see
    the danger because you haven't a clue as to the underlying physics.
    The reality is that several violent solar flares in rapid succession,
    perhaps coupled with the impact upon the Earth's primary
    electromagnetotoroid of a squarely aimed Coronal Mass Ejection, could,
    in fact, stimulate the Earth's EMT into undergoing a fairly rapid mode
    change. That you remain ignorant of the basic physics of flux loop
    systems is quite understandable but that you pretend to an
    understanding of the Earth's magnetic field so as to attempt to assure
    people that there's nothing to worry about is beyond rational
    comprehension. You assume that this just an opportunity for you to
    start a pissing contest, Knisely. In fact, it should be an opportunity
    for you to learn something. But then how is it that you could learn
    anything when you have given the impression that you already know

    Of course, I'm Charles Cagle. Changing my email address was an attempt
    to shed myself of spam, not an attempt at disguising my identity.


    Fear monger? I'm not selling it. People should be concerned with the
    greatly devastating geological changes which will accompany a mode
    change of the Earth's EMT.

    There are perhaps a billion or more Christians in the world and the
    prophecies of Christ (and Isaiah and others) as to the coming
    devastation of the Day of Wrath are or should be of immediate concern
    to many of them. Clearly predicted is a violent solar maximum, solar
    scorching of the Earth's surface, giant Earthquakes, Tsunamis, the
    rapid descent of whole mountain chains, the rapid rise of other new
    mountain systems. In fact, the violence of these coming events will
    probably kill two thirds of mankind. If people can take some
    preparatory action that might enhance their chances for survival then
    you shouldn't try to thwart any warning that is given to them.

    Of course, you don't believe that you will be held responsible for any
    of your actions, but nevertheless you will be. Hold your peace, David,
    and make things easier on yourself.

    Obviously you have little experience with observing sunspots. There are a
    number of groups in observational history which are on the same order of size
    as the ones currently active.

    Yup, that is what you are spouting "Chuckie". Another entry for the killfile.

    Of course I didn't!
    But I have enough respect for the readers of this newsgroup to believe that
    most (if not, alas, all) of them are perfectly capable
    of distinguishing between a little lighthearted banter (such as my comment)
    and a serious contribution (such as that of Mr Ryder)

    this is much too coincidental to discount.

    From: U. S. National Park Service Website, Geology Fieldnotes - Yellowstone
    National Park, April 2000
    At the heart of Yellowstone's past, present, and future lies volcanism.
    Catastrophic eruptions occurred here about 2 million years ago, then 1.2
    million years ago, and then 600,000 years a go. The latest eruption spewed
    out nearly 240 cubic miles of debris. What is now the park's central portion
    then collapsed, forming a 28- by 47- mile caldera (or basin). The magmatic
    heat powering those eruptions still powers the park's famous geysers, hot
    springs, fumaroles, and mud pots. The spectacular Grand Canyon of the
    Yellowstone River provides a glimpse of Earth's interior: its waterfalls
    highlight the boundaries of lava flows and thermal areas. Rugged mountains
    flank the park's volcanic plateau, rewarding both eye and spirit.

    Reversals have been documented as far back as 330 million years. During that
    time more than 400 reversals have taken place, one roughly every 700,000
    years on average. However, the time between reversals is not constant,
    varying from less than 100,000 years, to tens of millions of years. In
    recent geological times reversals have been occurring on average once every
    200,000 years, but the last reversal occurred 780,000 years ago. At that
    time the magnetic field underwent a transition from a "reversed" state to
    its present "normal state".

    Newly uncovered scientific data of recorded history's most
    massive space storm is helping a NASA scientist investigate its
    intensity and the probability that what occurred on Earth and in
    the heavens almost a century-and-a-half ago could happen again.

    In scientific circles where solar flares, magnetic storms and
    other unique solar events are discussed, the occurrences of
    September 1-2, 1859, are the star stuff of legend. Even 144 years
    ago, many of Earth's inhabitants realized something momentous had
    just occurred. Within hours, telegraph wires in both the United
    States and Europe spontaneously shorted out, causing numerous
    fires, while the Northern Lights, solar-induced phenomena more
    closely associated with regions near Earth's North Pole, were
    documented as far south as Rome, Havana and Hawaii, with similar
    effects at the South Pole.
