ANOTHER X-CLASS SOLAR FLARE: This is becoming routine. The sun just produced another X-class solar flare, the 7th of 2023. The X1.2-category explosion came from sunspot AR3256 near the sun’s southwestern limb:
Radiation from the flare ionized the top of Earth’s atmosphere, causing a strong shortwave radio blackout over southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand. Ham radio operators may have noticed loss of signal and other propagation effects below 30 MHz for as much as an hour after the peak of the flare (March 29th @ 0233 UT).
A faint CME left the sun after the explosion. NOAA analysts have determined that it will miss Earth–no impact.
The real significance of this flare may be the number “7.” That’s the total number of X-flares in all of 2022. With today’s flare, the sun has already matched that total in 2023–and it’s only March.
This is yet another sign that Solar Cycle 25 is rapidly intensifying. If the trend continues, we could have nearly 30 X-flares by the end of 2023, an order-of-magnitude greater activity than only two years ago. Official forecasts are calling for Solar Maximum to arrive in 2024 or 2025. If so, there is plenty of time for the solar cycle to intensify even more; X-flares could become routine, indeed.
SPACE WEATHER BALLOON DATA: Almost once a week, Spaceweather.com and the students of Earth to Sky Calculus fly space weather balloons to the stratosphere over California. These balloons are equipped with sensors that detect secondary cosmic rays, a form of radiation from space that can penetrate all the way down to Earth’s surface. Our monitoring program has been underway without interruption for 7 years, resulting in a unique dataset of in situ atmospheric measurements.
Latest results (July 2022): Atmospheric radiation is decreasing in 2022. Our latest measurements in July 2022 registered a 6-year low:
What’s going on? Ironically, the radiation drop is caused by increasing solar activity. Solar Cycle 25 has roared to life faster than forecasters expected. The sun’s strengthening and increasingly tangled magnetic field repels cosmic rays from deep space. In addition, solar coronal mass ejections (CMEs) sweep aside cosmic rays, causing sharp reductions called “Forbush Decreases.” The two effects blend together to bring daily radiation levels down.
.Who cares? Cosmic rays are a surprisingly “down to Earth” form of space weather. They can alter the chemistry of the atmosphere, trigger lightning, and penetrate commercial airplanes. According to a study from the Harvard T.H. Chan school of public health, crews of aircraft have higher rates of cancer than the general population. The researchers listed cosmic rays, irregular sleep habits, and chemical contaminants as leading risk factors. A number of controversial studies (#1, #2, #3, #4) go even further, linking cosmic rays with cardiac arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death.
Technical notes: The radiation sensors onboard our helium balloons detect X-rays and gamma-rays in the energy range 10 keV to 20 MeV. These energies span the range of medical X-ray machines and airport security scanners.
Data points in the graph labeled “Stratospheric Radiation” correspond to the peak of the Regener-Pfotzer maximum, which lies about 67,000 feet above central California. When cosmic rays crash into Earth’s atmosphere, they produce a spray of secondary particles that is most intense at the entrance to the stratosphere. Physicists Eric Regener and Georg Pfotzer discovered the maximum using balloons in the 1930s and it is what we are measuring today.
Flares, Filament Eruption, Solar Health Impact | S0 News Mar.30.2023 (3 min)
A flood of new scientific papers in the last 75 days demonstrate that Ben is on the right track with his catastrophe cycle every 12,600 years when we face a recurrent micro-nova. There are also half cycle events etc (like Noah’s flood a Heinrich event). I was surprised to find that earth magnetism dropped to 4% during the Laschamps event (The Laschamps event was a geomagnetic excursion It occurred 41,400 years ago, during the end of the Last Glacial Period). That is virtually non existent and it was global.
Our global supply chains are grinding to a halt because they are overloaded and at the breaking point, which is strange since a huge percent of businesses went under in the last 18 months, but demand for everything across the world is at all time highs. There seems to be a disconnect. At least Bitcoin is being mined with hydropower from the USA’s oldest powerplant.

Don’t think of this as the end…but as a new beginning.
These “powerful” people who want to rule the world are flesh….and as the Psalmist says (as cited by Peter):
"For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you". (1 Pet.1:24)
This is a very good interview published in 2018 with John Casey an ex NASA and NOAH scientist who was making big headway against the false global warming narrative. It is lucky (sic) for the opposition that he had a stroke (end of 2017) and retired. I found this communication:
John Casey Discussing the Grand Solar Minimum, Earthquakes & More GSM EXCLUSIVE
This important new science book, “Upheaval!” is now available through Veritence Publishing, Inc., Trafford Publishing and Amazon.com and other retail outlets, in both paperback and eBook formats. This profound science work by some of the world’s leading climate science and seismology experts, shows why the United States has just entered one of its most dangerous periods ever. The book lays out the case for catastrophic earthquakes striking the USA with long term adverse consequences for the entire country starting as early as 2017! Hundreds of billions of dollars are likely in property damage and tens of thousands of Americans may die during the next twenty years of geophysical ‘upheaval.’ Mr. John L. Casey. IEVPC Co-Founder and Director. Mr. Casey is also President of Veritence, Inc., a science and engineering consulting company and Veritence Publishing, Inc. a company established to aid scientists, nature and science-fiction authors to get their books published. He was, previous to 2015, the President of the Space and Science Research Corporation (SSRC), a leading climate science research organization. Mr. Casey is a former White House space program advisor, NASA Headquarters and Congressional Consultant and was a Senior Field Engineer on the Space Shuttle program. He is a leading researcher on the science of solar activity cycles and their impacts on climate change and associated catastrophic geophysical events (CGE), including earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions. He is also the author of the widely acclaimed climate science books including the 2011 climate book “Cold Sun,” its 2014 remake and natiowide best seller, “Dark Winter,” and the December 12, 2016 book “Upheaval! – Why Catastrophic Earthquakes Will Soon Strike the United States.”
At 1:11 Casey says that until 2023-2026 we will know for sure how cold it will be either a very difficult Dalton minimum or far worse case little ice age.
One of the questions they struggle with in the video is the same one that I struggle with….namely “Why the Geo-engineering” ? What they are doing will make it worse. I am coming to the conclusion that they are front-running the problem so that they can push people into the cities.
