Electric Weather

I have just watched Gerry Pollack’s Keynote note address to the EU 2015 conference held in Phoenix, Arizona recently in which he presented extremely interesting ideas about the role of electric charge and the Earth’s weather.  The videos of the presentations etc can be viewed online by going to the Thunderbolts.info site and paying your money to gain on line access.

Very briefly the following points were made:

  1. The incidence of solar radiation, vis light, causes electric charge separation over the oceans during the daytime in which protons evaporate and accumulate. This emission of protons also might occur in the subsurface due to IR affecting ground water, and deeper where magmatic and hydrothermal fluids dominate.
  2. There is a diurnal electric charge differential between day and night hemispheres that causes prevailing winds to form moving west to east, faster than the underlying solid earth.
  3. If atmospheric winds are produced by electric charge movement (positive) then co-rotating electric charges would generate magnetic fields, and thus raises the possibility that the geomagnetic field is produced externally, and not internally via an unseen dynamo mechanism. The geomagnetic field is thus probably the average of the fields produced by the circulating atmosphere and the co-rotating Van Allen Belts.
  4. Atmospheric high pressure cells are caused by accumulation of protons near the earth’s surface and not from gravity.
  5. The earth’s weather is electrically driven by the effect of the sun, not gravity and thermal effects. This idea was previously put by a paper I had published in NCGT News some years back.

And some ideas I have:

  1. The counter-rotating winds at the equator could also be explained by Dr, Don Scott’s Birkeland current mechanism.
  2. Protons reach the Earth’s surface via rain, so it’s not gravity that causes rain to fall, but the existence of proton rich rain ascending down to the negatively charged Earth.

The one physical parameter not routinely measured by climate science is the magnitude and fluctuation of the solar electric field, and hence the earth’s electric field. Further no climate theory incorporates any electrical force in its modelling.

It very much looks like I was right all those years ago that weather is electric, and this is why the existing climate models do not work — they have the basic physics wrong.

But will it take them another 100 years to learn, or might it come sooner? Scientific paradigms change when the old school dies out. That makes those paradigms not science but religion. Only religious minds are not swayed by empirical evidence to the contrary.

More in future posts.

About Louis Hissink

Retired diamond exploration geologist. I spent my professional life looking for mineral deposits, found some, and also located a number of kimberlites in NSW and Western Australia. Exploration geology is the closest one can get to practicing the scientific method, mineral exploration always being concerned with finding anomalous geophysical or geochemical data, framing a model and explanation for the anomaly and then testing it with drilling or excavation. All scientific theories are ultimately false since they invariably involved explaining something with incomplete extant knowledge. Since no one is omniscient or knows everything, so too scientific theories which are solely limited to existing knowledge. Because the future always yields new data, scientific theories must change to be compatible with the new data. Thus a true scientist is never in love with any particular theory, always knowing that when the facts change, so too must he/she change their minds.

    Hi Louis, great to see you carrying the Electric Weather ball, practically all by yourself so far. Just a few thoughts to add in today:

    “Protons reach the Earth’s surface via rain, so it’s not gravity that causes rain to fall, but the existence of proton rich rain ascending down to the negatively charged Earth.”

    … reminds me of Mitch Battros’ book Solar Rain. – a great intro to the subject

    There is definitely a connection between proton storms and extreme weather events. Kongpop U-Yen covered this at EU2014, as did I. His presentation was excellent.

    “The one physical parameter not routinely measured by climate science is the magnitude and fluctuation of the solar electric field, and hence the earth’s electric field. Further no climate theory incorporates any electrical force in its modelling.”

    Total solar irradiance is the sun’s electric field, by definition, and is measured daily at 6 hour intervals by SORCE. Short and long-term TSI fluctuations are very important to weather and climate changes – and are not well understood by your typical climate scientist – whatsoever!

    The Earth’s electric field: when I finally launch my data-driven site, one of the things I’ll be calling for from the governments is the necessary construction of a worldwide electric-magnetic measuring network so scientists can see what the Earth’s electric and magnetic fields are doing worldwide at all times, just like other weather indices. I want to see those variations daily along with the weather.

    My Electric Weather website is nearly ready. Basically my site is setup to be a glorified multimeter. I’m making some data presentation ‘products’ consisting of updating data streams of ACE, GOES, SORCE, geomagnetic, and lunar information, to see in all in one place our daily electric, magnetic, electromagnetic environment, along with worldwide weather and climate data.

    One such product is particle fluences of protons and electrons at different energy levels, to be used to evaluate whether/when charge build-up events occur over time in Earth-space from the solar wind current, and to see what else is connected to the incoming time-varying & directional charge.

    Your observations on Electric Weather are definitely well ahead of mine, so I appreciate your continual postings on this matter. I’ve been documenting the most extreme natural disasters wrt electric weather, and plan to submit paper(s) this year. Your journal will receive a paper from me regarding the electrifying solar causation of the most severe geophysical events in our lifetime.

    • Hi Bob,

      One comment – TSI is total solar irradiance which is different to the electric field which is the tension a charged particle experiences when immersed in an electric field. It’s a bit like equating TSI with an automobile headlight, and the electric field to its ‘hidden’ engine; both are related but at the same time quite different aspects, so I’m not sure climate science actually measures the electric field per se.

      Electric fields are produced when electric charge separation occurs, while TSI is essentially the radiation emitted by an object when immersed in that electric field, other things being equal.

      Looks like your site will be a ‘site’ to monitor once up and running.

        Hi Louis. Yes you’re right, but there are no direct electric field measurements possible of the Sun, that I know of anyway, but indirect methods may possibly be used to determine it.

        “…while TSI is essentially the radiation emitted by an object when immersed in that electric field,… ”

        All light & heat from the sun results from charged particle acceleration.

        TSI is an electrical phenomenon because TSI occurs from accelerating charges, which are caused by charge separation in the solar corona & photosphere (where electric, magnetic force via moving charged particles becomes electromagnetic force). TSI varies with sunspot number & F10.7cm flux, with a lag (to be discussed on my site).

        See the properties section of the definition for irradiance here:
        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irradiance, where it is a function of the solar electric field, E.

        TSI varies over a solar rotation and daily like all other solar indices. It goes up and down as the active regions appear and disappear, so any electric charge separation is local to every specific area of ‘activity’, meaning the electric field of the sun varies with location on surface of the sun. Of course by superposition there is a total solar electric field from all localized charge separations but how to calculate that is something yet to be determined.

    always i used to read smaller articles or reviews which also
    clear their motive, and that is also happening with this article which I am reading at this place.
