I’ve always maintained that climate science’s focus on Total Solar Radiation, TSR), as the principal physical forcing in the climate system, is incomplete. My preferred metaphor is to equate TSR with an automobile’s speedo, and conclude that the force that propels the automobile is correlated with the position of the speedo arrow, not realising that hidden from view is the engine that is actually powering the car.
In the Plasma Universe model the engine is the electromagnetic component, EM, of the solar circuit and the TSR the speedo.
The climate system can be considered to be driven by natural and non-natural forcings, the latter being identified as the human effect. The only identified natural forcing is TSR, so the relationship could be algebraically specified as:
Climate Change = Natural + Human.
Climate Change = (TSR + EM) + Human Plasma Universe Model
Climate Change = Natural + (Human + EM) Mainstream Model (Gravity only).
The EM forcings are allocated to the human contribution by definition, since if TSR is the only energy input to the Earth, then any variation above and beyond the TSR effect must be human. (And the EM effects are truly human as well, grand human error, that is).
Why do mainstream climate scientists think this way? Because that’s how they have been trained. They have been addicted to a particular mode of thinking that I would explain as religious, a dogmatic subservience to authority. While thinking is intrinsically a physical process, it, like any physical activity, can become habitual from repetition and frequently so habitual that it becomes a subconscious activity, much like bicycle riding, a learnt habit that becomes automatic with practice.
The mainstream gravity dominant cosmos is the outcome of the Enlightenment when God was ejected and replaced by Gravity. Still the Big Gee, but different. Newton did not recognise the role of electricity in the cosmos. His successors still don’t.
Post Script: Apparently the mainstream majority of astrophysicists believe electricity has no role in the cosmos: So too in their personal neural circuits between their ears.
More: If we assume the Sun’s TSR is the automobile speedo and the EM component the (hidden) engine, then the variations of the speedo needle is equivalent to the TSR variation, sunspots etc) while the weather and other geophysical phenomena on the Earth are equivalent to the engine variation.
