‘Snapshot’ of the main magnetic field at Earth’s surface as of June 2014 based on Swarm data. The measurements are dominated by the magnetic contribution from Earth’s core (about 95%) while the contributions from other sources (the mantle, crust, oceans, ionosphere and magnetosphere) make up the rest. Red represents areas where the magnetic field is stronger, while blues show areas where it is weaker. image copyright: ESA/DTU Space
Our earth is one of the most dynamic, unpredictable complex adaptive systems that we mortals will ever confront, yet current government sanctioned propaganda would have us all believe that anthropomorphic global climate/warming/catastrophic weather is “settled” science. The modern usage for the term science itself defies this absurd conclusion, for science is truly never at rest and there are always layers of complexity and unknown causation that mankind will be researching well into the infinite.
The magnetic fields are changing, and so are the polarities of the Sun. Each of these events are serious determinants of weather patterns on this planet, each will not be discussed broadly, for to do so would pull down the massive evidence of lies and the wealth built up around them and destroy the reputations of so many sycophantic scientists and politicians that it simply will not be allowed.
But of course, in the end it is mans use of fracking technologies and our carbon emissions that must be causing the vast molten inner core of the planet to be shifting in unexpected ways and accelerating. It must be our over-consumption and greed that is driving activity of the sun. It must be so, for how can we demand sacrifices? How can the rulers rule through the fear and trembling of the masses without the high priests and the keepers of the sacred forcing us to all obey?
The first set of high-resolution results from ESA’s three-satellite Swarm constellation reveals the most recent changes in the magnetic field that protects us from cosmic radiation and charged particles that bombard Earth.
Magnetic field is in a permanent state of flux. Magnetic north wanders, and every few hundred thousand years the polarity flips so that a compass would point south instead of north. Moreover, the strength of the magnetic field constantly changes – and it is currently showing signs of significant weakening. (ESA)
Measurements made by Swarm over the past six months confirm the general trend of the field’s weakening, with the most dramatic declines over the Western Hemisphere. But in other areas, such as the southern Indian Ocean, the magnetic field has strengthened since January.
The field is particularly weak over the South Atlantic Ocean – known as the South Atlantic Anomaly and the latest measurements confirm the movement of magnetic North towards Siberia.
The weak field has indirectly caused many temporary satellite ‘hiccups’ (called Single Event Upsets) as the satellites are exposed to strong radiation over this area. (ESA)

#2 Why it matters

Swarm was launched in November 2013 and is providing unprecedented insights into the complex workings of Earth’s magnetic field. The objective of the Swarm mission is to provide the best-ever survey of the geomagnetic field and its temporal evolution as well as the electric field in the atmosphere using a constellation of 3 identical satellites carrying sophisticated magnetometers and electric field instruments.
Its first results were presented today, June 19th, at the ‘Third Swarm Science Meeting’ in Copenhagen, Denmark.
“These initial results demonstrate the excellent performance of Swarm,” said Rune Floberghagen, ESA’s Swarm Mission Manager. “With unprecedented resolution, the data also exhibit Swarm’s capability to map fine-scale features of the magnetic field.”
Over the coming months, scientists will analyse the data to unravel the magnetic contributions from other sources, namely the mantle, crust, oceans, ionosphere and magnetosphere.
This will provide new insight into many natural processes, from those occurring deep inside our planet to space weather triggered by solar activity. In turn, this information will yield a better understanding of why the magnetic field is weakening.
Evidence of space weather induced natural disasters – EU2014
Strong solar activities have long been known to cause damages to electrical grids and global communication systems. However, there exist evidence that solar activities have strong correlation with abrupt weather conditions and tectonic activities, including storm formations, flash floods, volcanic activities and earthquakes. In this presentation, case studies of such connections are examined and discussed that are linked to electrical properties of the Earth. Simple electrical theories based on laboratory experiments are presented to explain such phenomena.
Dr. Kongpop U-yen obtained his PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology. As an electric universe enthusiast, he has conducted an independent research on topics related to space weather and solar activities predictions.
Of note: unfortunately, Kongpop’s presentation at EU2014 was the victim of AV breakdown. However, he produced this video summary after the conference, and it is posted on his YouTube Channel. Since the conference, Suspicious0bservers has highlighted his work. A recent paper has been released by them on the topic of space weather induced

Presentation a tad slow and for some, I am sure, a bit boring–but fascinating and very, very compelling research.
New research, published this week, has provided scientists with greater insight into the climatic changes happening in the upper atmosphere. Scientists found that changes in the Earth’s magnetic field are more relevant for climatic changes in the upper atmosphere (about 100-500 km above the surface) than previously thought. Understanding the cause of long-term change in this area helps scientists to predict what will happen in the future. This has key implications for life back on earth.
A good understanding of the long-term behaviour of the upper atmosphere is essential; it affects a lot of satellite-based technology, such as global navigation systems and high-frequency radio communication systems. Some satellites even operate within the upper atmosphere itself.
The increase in atmospheric CO2 concentration has been thought to be the main cause of climatic changes at these high altitudes. This study suggests that magnetic field changes that have taken place over the past century are as important.
Changes measured by the Swarm satellite over the past 6 months shows that Earth’s magnetic field is changing. Shades of red show areas where it is strengthening, and shades of blue show areas that are weakening.
