Is the climate changing? The short answer is yes…it is changing and that will accelerate but it has very little to do with what man is doing although we are practicing geoengineering and have been for decades in the hope to block harmful radiation and regulate precipitation. They can literally flood areas or cause regional droughts but they will lose that ability to control the weather as we enter into the Grand Solar Minimum (GSM). The GSM goes hand in hand with a changing magnetosphere and the magnetic excursion changes the global electric circuit which in turn alters the jet streams. This will drastically alter global weather patterns. Moreover, because more moisture gets locked up as ice we can expect to see more droughts. The small amount of CO2 that we produce will hardly make any difference:
CO2 Contributed by Human Activity: 12 to 15ppmv / version 1 (2 min)
Not only that but CO2 is a lagging indicator.CO2 occurs after the earth has warmed up! There’s a lag of about 800 years.
There are so many contrary forces at work that it is difficult to figure out exactly what is going on and that is exactly what they want. The whole “climate” thing is being used to fulfill an agenda. The climate modelling is wrong, but is that due to incompetence or on purpose? On top of that we have geoengineering and huge natural changes. Space weather effects the magnetic excursion and the global electric circuit including the jet streams etc. Increased cosmic radiation effects the ozone layer and seismic activity. Volcanoes spew dust, CO2 and SO2 etc into the atmosphere.

CO-ROTATING INTERACTION REGION: NOAA forecasters say that a CIR (co-rotating interaction region) could hit Earth’s magnetic field on Sept. 17th. CIRs are transition zones between slow- and fast-moving solar wind streams. Solar wind plasma piles up in these regions, producing shock-like structures that can mimic CMEs and spark bright Arctic auroras. Solar flare alerts:SMS Text.
THE STARLINK INCIDENT: A minor geomagnetic storm is supposed to be minor. That’s why even experts were surprised on Feb. 4, 2022, when dozens of Starlink satellites started falling out of the sky. A weak CME had hit Earth’s magnetic field, and the resulting G1-class (minor) storm was bringing them down:

How could this happen? A new paper published in the research journal Space Weather provides the answer.
“Although it was only ‘minor,’ the storm pumped almost 1200 gigawatts of energy into Earth’s atmosphere,” explains lead author Tong Dang of the University of Science and Technology of China. “This extra energy heated Earth’s upper atmosphere and sharply increased aerodynamic drag on the satellites.”
SpaceX launched the satellites from Cape Canaveral on Feb. 3, 2022. Forty-nine (49) Starlinks were crowded inside the Falcon 9 rocket; less than a quarter would survive.

As was SpaceX’s practice at the time, the satellites were deployed at an altitude of 210 km–their first stop en route to an operational altitude near 600 km. In the satellite business, 210 km is considered to be low, barely above the atmosphere. SpaceX starts there in case any satellite malfunctions after launch. From 210 km, a “bad sat” can be easily de-orbited.
A little too easily, as it turns out.
Using a physics-based computer model named “TIEGCM,” Dang and colleagues simulated conditions during the storm. As geomagnetic energy heated Earth’s atmosphere, the air density at 210 km increased globally by 20% with “hot spots” as high as 60%. This movie shows what happened:
Starlink dodged the worst spots. “The satellites did not hit any of the 60% regions,” says Dang. “But that didn’t save them.” The weaker 20% enhancements were enough to bring down 38 out of 49 satellites.
To prevent a repeat, SpaceX has started launching to 320 km instead of 210 km. Earth’s atmosphere has to reach that much higher to drag the satellites back during a geomagnetic storm. Since the change, more than 1200 additional Starlink satellites have been launched on 24 rockets without incident.
There’s still danger, though. “Air density at 320 km is an order of magnitude less (compared to 210 km), but it’s not completely safe,” cautions Dang’s co-author Jiuhou Lei, also from the University of Science and Technology of China. “During an extreme geomagnetic storm, density could increase from 200% to 800% even at these higher altitudes.”
Extreme storms may be in the offing. Young Solar Cycle 25 is just getting started. The profusion of minor storms we are observing today will intensify in the years ahead especially as we approach Solar Max around 2025.

GEOMAGNETIC STORM WARNING: Geomagnetic storms are possible on July 23rd when a full-halo CME is expected to hit Earth’s magnetic field. The storm cloud was hurled toward Earth yesterday by a solar tsunami eruption. NOAA forecasters say that G1– to G2-class (minor to moderate) storms are likely with a slight chance of escalating to category G3 (strong).
Exactly what time will the CME hit? This NASA model of the approaching cloud pinpoints the impact within a few hours around 0000 UT on July 23rd:
In the animation, Earth is marked by a yellow dot. Note that Mars, a red dot, also gets hit–a glancing blow on July 25th.
An independent NOAA model of the CME predicts a slightly later arrival, with the densest part of the storm cloud reaching Earth around 0400 UT on July 23rd. Either way, NOAA or NASA, the timing favors sky watchers in western Europe and North America. In the most optimistic case of a G3-category storm, auroras could descend as far south as Illinois and Oregon (geomagnetic latitude 50 degrees) during the night of July 22-23
