You get the privilege of being the first to be enlightened by it.

You're welcome.
Yes, thank you for the "incite"...
Perhaps you would wish to comment on the various relationships below ...



.24 hr Summary...
Solar activity was low. Region 1865 (S21W44, Dso/beta) and Region
1861 (S08W63, Ekc/beta-gamma) continued to be the most active regions
on the visible disk. Region 1865 produced the largest flare of the period,
a C8/1n flare, at approximately 16/1432 UTC. An associated asymmetric
partial halo coronal mass ejection (CME) was observed in Lasco C2
imagery at approximately 16/1548 UTC. Analysis indicated there will
likely be an Earth-directed component, but the relatively slow speeds
(est. 386 km/s) indicate there will not likely be impacts observed
during this forecast period. Region 1861 remained the most magnetically
complex and most active region as it continued to produce several
low-level C-class flares.

.Forecast...
Solar activity is expected to be low with a chance for an M-class (R1-R2
Minor to Moderate) flare for the forecast period (17-19 Oct). The most
likely regions for M-class flare activity continue to be Regions 1861
and 1865.

Energetic Particle

.24 hr Summary...
The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit was at
moderate to high levels, with a peak flux value of 1540 pfu. The greater
than 10 MeV proton flux at geosynchronous orbit was at background
levels.

.Forecast...
The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit is expected
to be at moderate to high levels for the forecast period (17-19 Oct).
The greater than 10 MeV proton flux at geosynchronous orbit is expected
to remain at background levels.

Solar Wind

.24 hr Summary...
Solar wind parameters, measured at the ACE spacecraft, remained slightly
enhanced as a result of residual coronal hole high-speed stream (CH HSS)
effects. Speed decreased from a peak of near 540 km/s to just under 430
km/s by the end of the period. IMF total field held steady at around 4
nT, while IMF Bz waivered between 4 nT and -4 nT. Phi angle remained in
a positive (Away) orientation throughout the period.

.Forecast...
Solar wind conditions are expected to continue to decrease towards
background levels on days one and two (17 - 18 Oct) as residual effects
from the CH HSS subside. A return to ambient conditions is forecast for
day three (19 Oct).

Geospace

.24 hr Summary...
The geomagnetic field was quiet to unsettled.

.Forecast...
The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet to unsettled with a slight
chance for active conditions on days one and two (17 - 18 Oct) as CH HSS
effects continue to wane. A return to mostly quiet conditions is
forecast for day three (19 Oct).

Although you may explain it if you wish...There may be others that
fail to follow the interrelatedness and mechanics as well as the consequences of major-minor changes...
I, obviously, am looking for operations and relationships overlooked by the leading intellectual institutions of the Earth.
I will take the liberty of assuming the earth's #1 brain would submit insights as yet unrealized...

I would not doubt it. Not only are you not worried about the future, you obviously don't care about those less fortunate than yourself. A perfect 'Republican'.....

If HE is listening, I hope he forgives you for your hypocrisy. A good Christian is a STEWARD of the land and not should leave it in the same shape he got it. You obviously benefited a lot from raping and exploiting the natural world yet you deny your duty to GOD because you are yourself safe from the consequences. You disgust me.

Lots of AGW advocates believe in God.
I'm a Christian. But I don't believe in "god's message delivered by re-pubic-lick-uns".

Your life as a non-scientist & disbeliever in science has led you to an erroneous conclusion that science believers & God-believers can't be the same person.

Well as usual your wrong my wife and i donate to many programs from disadvantage kids in cities to our local church , not to feel good but because it's the right thing to do , can you say the same ?, and as for land we own several acres that we have restored to it;s natural being , and no i am not worried about the future as i know GOD has a place for me and mine in HEAVEN ! to the best of my thought I have never taken advantage of anyone be it in business or in my personal life's dealings .
So I believe your statements are sorely wrong I never judge anyone from the few words they post here unlike you and others so called X SPURTS which make you the smug , arrogant , self centered , closed minded , only believe that science is god one , and as far as disgusting look no further than the mirror . oh and for the record I have supported folks from many parties over the years ,for many varied reasons . unlike you warmers who only vote for a few core values and one party not the good of the country , just like a good little socialist !

Wrong again Swan Song , A true Christian would NEVER PUT SCIENCE BEFORE GOD !!!! So therefor we can all assume that most believers in science are non believers in God as he should be first and NOT YOUR SCIENCE ! And sorry not a Republican either INDEPENDANT ! As I have supported folks from each party over the years .

Easing your conscience while profiting from destruction is hardly 'CHRISTIAN'.

Undoubtedly for private property that only YOU and your cohorts can 'enjoy'. This is also typical of the false Christian that tend to join the right wing.

Your hypocrisy is too stupid. Christianity is about being good stewards of the land for EVERYBODY and you have to put yourself into it, not just throw some small change at it.

I seriously doubt if you will ever understand Christian values. You have what you CONSIDER to be Christianity and can ignore it most days.

As you are doing with your responsibility to preserve the climate and resources for future generations.

Claiming that science is 'Ungodly' is about as stupid as it gets. Nor is ignorance of the world a mark of worship.

God said for man to look after the land. He did not say that he must do it in IGNORANCE. To learn about how the world works and ensure that we do no harm is how true Christians approach it.

You fail both to care about learning about GODS work (the world, i.e. science) but about your fellow man who pays the price for your ignorance.

Point is that hypocrites are NOT who they 'say' they are. He is like a middle age's noble, having bought enough 'pardons' from a pardoner to last his entire weekend of sloth and debauchery..

If he was CHRISTIAN he would live for the VALUES of Christianity instead of using it as a 'pretext' for his sins.

These AGW forums have hosted posts on nearly every subject, from AGW advocates, AGW deniers, from racists, threateners, schooled & unskuled, intelligent people & stupid people.

No need to suppress one particular subject.
