  1. Using the Precomputed tables - Finding the sun's true bearing published by The Civil Aviation Branch, Department of Transport in Ottawa in 1965. It showed the sunrise and sunset times for Ottawa may 20 as 0320 and 2032. The weatheroffice showed the sunrise and sunset times for Ottawa may 20.2022 as 0527 and 2032, that suggests to me that there is a very significant wobble on earth as the sun is now rising 2 hours later but setting at the same time making up the 2 hour time difference. I live in Ottawa and it seems to be a lot more windy since I moved here 50 years ago. The planet is still spinning at 1670 kilometres an hour and zooming around the sun at 107000 kilometres an hour all this having an effect on the weather.

  2. Svensmark links sun spot rarity periods to enhanced cosmic ray atmospheric penetration and increased cloud cover due to ionization and temperature decline via albedo effect on an 11 year sun spot cycle .
    2020 to 2053 great maunder minimum according to noaa linked to sunspot nosedive and negative irradiance effect of newly discovered double dynamo in solar interior . Plant growth in peril no time to curtail traditional energy.

  3. It goes back to Svensmark's predecessors at the Danish Space Center who published a paper in Science magazine in 1991. Friis-Christensen and Lassen (1991) showed a 95% correlation between solar cycle peak frequency (not the sunspot number) and warming and cooling of the northern hemisphere over 130 years - there are significant deviations from the carbon dioxide trend. It did not take long for ad hominem from alarmists and the trend ended with the eruption of Pinatubo to disrupt the correlation. Since then, Henrik Svensmark has conducted a number of experiments to support the hypothesis. Their work at the Hadron collider in Switzerland was so successful that the Director of Hadron denied permission to publish the conclusions. There are several YouTube presentations by Svensmark that document their experimental follow-up to the Friis-Christensen and Lassen hypothesis. It is now elevated to a theory by experiments.

  4. It is reported that the world uses 100 million barrels of oil per day which flows up from underground.
    50% or so of that is used for fuels and is burnt in engines.
    I wonder what happens to the other 50% which is exhausted as heat, CO2 and H2O.
    Fires and Floods could be a result. And, yes, I am sure varying heat output from the sun is a contributor as well.

  5. Thank you very much for producing these informative videos. This one on the effects of solar activity on the climate is particularly important in understanding that AGW is a political, and in some cases, entirely fraudulent movement.

    Keep up the excellent work. I continue to be a proud monthly sponsor of CDN.

  6. John,
    John, you might want to reference this article: (https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/technology/the-daring-lightsail-2-spacecraft-is-being-sucked-into-fiery-doom/ar-AAZ2LTT?cvid=5e74c34c863d4f3ca9920de95535940d&ocid=winp2sv1plus) in a future Wednesday update.
    "Ironically, the Sun also worked against LightSail 2. When the Sun is more active, it heats Earth’s upper atmosphere, causing it to expand into higher altitudes. At the start of the mission, the Sun was going through some downtime as part of its 11-year cycle, but our host star recently revved up its activity for its solar maximum period. This has caused the atmosphere to be denser at higher altitudes, even reaching the spacecraft, causing LightSail 2 to drag downwards."
    Who knew the solar constant wasn't? I noticed the link is being distorted because of the question mark but I am sure you can search it from the title.
