Theory v Raw Data on Sun Energy Output


QUESTION:  Professor Valentina Zharkova gave a presentation of her Climate and the Solar Magnetic Field hypothesis at the Global Warming Policy Foundation in October 2018. The information she unveiled should shake/wake you up.

Zharkova was one of only two scientists to correctly predict solar cycle 24 would be weaker than cycle 23 — in fact, only 2 out of 150 models predicted this.

Zharkova’s models have run at a 97% accuracy and now suggest a Super Grand Solar Minimum is on the cards beginning 2020.

Reduction of heat from the sun to 60%! 97% probability!
Have Mr. Armstrong included such data into Socrates?

THANKS much for the work and viewpoints.

Raphael … one of the appreciative readers.

ANSWER: I have included the raw data, not Professor Zharkova’s theory. Our computer accurately forecasts that decline in Solar Cycle #23 and it is projecting a major decline for Solar Cycle #24.

Now, Socrates is not concerned about the theory. It is correlating the data from many fields. The link between economics and the energy output of the sun is beyond question. Civilization has expanded ONLY during warming periods and has contracted during global cooling. It does not care as to the reasons. It is only concerned with the correlations.

Each solar cycle has been in a declining position making lower highs than the previous. This is market terms in a bear market. The next one, Cycle #24, is going to decline sharply. That is simply cyclical analysis and pattern recognition. I am not using any particular theory, but our results can be used to confirm the validity of a theory.

Full story of Hywind Scotland – world’s first floating wind farm


Some people thought we were crazy when we put a giant wind turbine on top of a floating spar structure and towed it out to sea. But it turned out to be the future, and the future is now. This year we made a giant leap forward as we installed and started producing electricity from the world’s first floating wind farm. The 30 MW Hywind Scotland pilot park will demonstrate the feasibility of future commercial floating wind farms that could be more than four times the size. This will further increase the global market potential for offshore wind energy, contributing to realising Statoil’s ambition of profitable growth in renewable energy and other low-carbon solutions.

Applauded by many governments around the world as one of the cleanest initiatives for the generation of energy, the wind industry is also one of the most expensive and heavily subsidized, compared with other power generation alternatives. Ryan M. Yonk, Research Fellow at the Independent Institute, presents interesting and little-known facts, which demystify wind power’s efficiency, cost, and benefits for the environment.

 

Winter Wonderland – Volatility in Weather & Communism


Our computer models have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that there is absolutely no basis for human-caused global warming and that the climate has ALWAYS changed. There is no foundation to presume that the climate is being altered by humans. There have been previous periods where CO2 levels have been more than twice that currently.

We are breaking records for cold each year. Weather is changing and the next solar cycle our model is forecasting will be a lower activity level that the past wave and there remains a risk of things getting much more colder during the winters with swings to heat and droughts in the summer.

This usurpation of climate change to force communism/socialism upon society to justify government seizing control of industry and to punish wealth is a major fraud. It is being rejected in Asia and many see this as a political agenda to keep developing nations in poverty.

We are facing a very serious threat to our liberty from these Climate Change people and most of the supporters actually think they are saving the environment and are oblivious to the real agenda behind the fake research. It certainly appears that the West will decline and Asia will rise for the next cycle to be the Financial Capital of the World because the hidden agenda of the real communists are pushing Climate Change to take over the economy.

I even question whether Al Gore, who has no expertise in science, understands that he is being used for a covert agenda and the $100 million he is earning from Global Warming may end up in their pocket at the end of the day.

The Climate Change Fraud Used by Marxists When Communism Failed


This is a good documentary on the subject of human-caused climate change. In a court of law, the evidence argued by the global warming crowd is absolutely a joke and in a real court of law, they would be charged with criminal fraud. This is an agenda which has been usurped by the Marxists who simply want to destroy the free market and impose their will to redistribute wealth so they do not feel inferior because other people have made money they only dream of having but either are too lazy to work or lack the talents to earn money.

This is the backdrop to people like Thomas Piketty, the French economist from communism’s birthplace, who argues it is not fair that anyone has more money than he does. Piketty wants to drive a stake through the heart of capitalism and restore Marxism thereby subjugating human rights. If it is unfair to discriminate against race, gender, or creed, then why is it reasonable to discriminate against people because of their wealth? To this crowd, a doctor should earn no more than a trash-truck driver. By earning more, you are suppressing others even if you try to help others.

We are facing a very serious crisis for the Marxists who have usurped climate as the new excuse to end the freedoms that were once guaranteed by the constitution we generally refer to as human rights. This is building into a serious issue for they then immediately attack anyone who disagrees with their agenda intimidating politicians around the world.

Using Courts to End Fossil Fuels


In Alaska, attorneys for 16 young Alaskans have sued over state climate change policy. They are trying to shut down fossil fuels and arguing their case before Alaska Supreme Court justices. They are claiming that state policy, which promotes fossil fuels, violates the constitutional right of young Alaskans to a safe climate. They are claiming that human-caused climate change will be catastrophic unless atmospheric carbon dioxide declines.

If they have a constitutional right to a safe climate, which has never been defined and they could never prove is human-induced, then I should have a right to be free from Marxists trying to shut down airplanes, cars, and the industrial revolution. That is a denial of my right to be free from their subjugation. They simply want to seize the economy and impose central control all over again. They are communists using climate change as their excuse.

 

Cold & the Great Migration


QUESTION: Marty, are you still in Asia because you wanted to miss this early snowstorm?

Pete

ANSWER: No, the crisis is Asia has capital in a state of concerned. Because of the problems in Hong Kong, there remain major concerns not just about the peg, but the future of Hong Kong. As I have said, we have 3 offices in Asia and clients on every side of this issue with questions.

I moved to Florida because (1) it was going to get much colder, (2) my lawyer told me to tell my family if I died in New Jersey, make sure my family dragged my body across the state border before they told anyone, and (3) my accountant made we swear in blood to get out of the state before it was too late.

As far as the cold is concerned, AccuWeather said this is definitely a “massive size and intensity of this snowstorm is unheard of for October…” I do not do well in cold and having to shovel my way out of a house. Civilization always expands with warm weather and contracts with cold.

As far as population migration is concerned, the #1 state people are fleeing from in New York. Also, Connecticut and Illinois are not far behind. According to recently released data from the US Census, about 38,000 more people left California than entered it in 2018. This is the second straight year that migration to the state was negative, and it’s a trend that is speeding up. Every year since 2014, net migration has fallen.

The interesting thing is as revenues decline in these state, they raise taxes and enforcement to make up the short-fall which in turn then send more people out. If a retail store sees a recession and sales decline, they run a sale to entice people to buy. The government is incapable of proper management. This is like a recession comes so the store doubles its prices to make up for the decline in prices. Dah

Climate Change Will Add to Unemployment in Auto Industry


The internet reshaped the retail consumer world by eliminating many small stores and forcing big stores to close locations as online shopping exploded. Many small book stores and camera stores were particularly vulnerable. Now climate change is having a similar impact.

The strike with the United Auto Workers’ (UAW) and General Motors is not so much about pay raises. Instead, UAW members are deeply concerned that climate change and electric cars mean less employment. Most other automakers have come to the realization that the internal combustion engine will be replaced by electric vehicles. Exactly how fast, it is hard to say for it also depends on the political rhetoric to win an election.

Electric cars come with fewer parts, which means fewer people are needed for assembly and they are more prone to be produced by robots than combustion engines. Hence, the UAW is more concerned about losing jobs, not the pay increases

Correction: We Should all be Dead in 2020 Because of Climate Change


COMMENT: Dear Marty,
in your blog today you write that politicians state we have allegedly only 12 years to live.
Please see this picture of the most read German yellow press paper „Bild“. They stated on front page of February 23rd, 2007: „Secret Climate Report: We have only 13 years left to save the earth!“
This comes due next year. If it were not about all the fear they are mongering I would call it ridiculous.
Kind regards,
MS from Germany

ANSWER: The number of forecasts they have made that NEVER come true are just amazing, and yet the press loves to project these people as infallible. They are absolutely stupid for they do not even realize that they are being manipulated as a tool to remove their own freedom.

These reports are always “secret” to not panic the public. But that is to hide the fact that they are really trying to make sure the truth does not surface.

This is like handing a person a loaded gun who has no idea what it is or what to do with it. They will be lucky if they do not kill themselves since they do not understand what it even does.
