Focus: Simulations Strengthen Earth’s Magnetic-Field/Climate Connection:
Published September 20, 2013 | Physics 6, 103 (2013)| DOI: 10.1103/Physics.6.103
Simulations support the idea that during past ice ages, a slightly faster rotation rate for the Earth could have increased its magnetic field.

Rock samples show that variations in Earth’s magnetic field over tens to hundreds of thousands of years are roughly synchronized with the ice ages. In Physical Review Letters, researchers present a simulation that strengthens the case that the field was influenced by climate changes. The simulation shows that the magnetic field is stronger when Earth rotates faster, which could have occurred when the polar ice caps expanded. The researchers’ model assumes an unrealistically large variation in Earth’s rotation rate in order to show the effect clearly, but the findings could still help geophysicists better understand the value of Earth’s magnetic field record as an indicator of

Volcano Sends Pillar Of Fire 1,000m Into Sky:
The stream of lava rose up to a kilometre above the summit of Klyuchevskoy, one of the active volcanoes on the Kamchatka peninsula in the east of the country.

The volcano, which erupts around every two years, is one of the largest on-land active volcanoes, according to the US Geological Survey.

It stands at 15,584ft on the north end of a belt of 30 active volcanoes.

Kamchatka’s Shiveluch volcano spews ash cloud 9 km high:
The Shiveluch Volcano erupting in Kamchatka has spewed ash nine kilometers high, the Kamchatkan territorial emergency situations department reported on Tuesday. No ashfall has been reported from towns nearby.
"The volcanic event occurred on Tuesday afternoon. The ash cloud stretched northwest, bypassing populated areas," the report said.
No ashfall has been reported from towns nearby, it added.
Nevertheless, rescuers advised tour operators to avoid paths around the volcano, for which a red alert has been issued.
Shiveluch is the northernmost active volcano of Kamchatka situated 45 kilometers away from the town of Klyuchi in the Ust-Kamchatsky district with a population of approximately 5,000.
It is also one of the largest Kamchatkan volcanoes. Shiveluch became active in May 2009 and got a fissure that is almost 30 meters deep in its dome.

Turkey warned of potential eruption hazards from 14 active volcanoes:
December 7, 2013 – TURKEY – Turkey is facing potential eruption hazard from 14 active volcanoes. Armenpress reports quoting the Turkish Haberler news website, that the population of the country has been warned about the danger by the Turkish volcano experts. According to them, the data of only one volcano out of 14 active ones has been monitored and collected.

Our sun put out a CME December 7, that is not earth directed but is wide enough to possibly have some impact.

I must say; you disciples of Orthodox Climatology are a peculiar lot.

Congratulations Less!
2 out of three correct statements.

That is a score of 67% correct.
Still a "FAIL" but kudos for scoring above your personal average.

Today's science lesson:

True or False:
The Earth rotates on it's axis.

Good luck.(It is ok to use google to research the answer)

and more. THere is an average of 50 so you can expect activity to go from maybe 30 to 70 in any particular year. Anything useful to contribute? Note. The magnetic poles are from VERY deep processes. Unlikely that they would have any effect on volcanic eruptons which are relatively shallow features.

Sinabung volcano (Sumatra): large eruption this morning, ash plume at 38,000 ft (12 km) altitude
Tuesday Dec 10, 2013 09:25 AM | BY: T

After a relatively calm period, a large vulcanian explosion occurred at the volcano this morning (04:30 GMT). VAAC Darwin reports an ash plume to 38,000 ft (12 km) altitude drifting 50 nautical miles to the NW.
The eruption was preceded by a smaller one at midnight (GMT) with an ash plume altitude of estimated 18,000 ft (5.5 km).
The volcano has been on red alert for 2 weeks and more than 17,000 people remain evacuated (for good reason!).

Record low temperatures forecasted as arctic blast deep freezes parts of USA:
Powerful and deadly winter storms covered parts of United States in a deep freeze over the last couple of days. More than 6 000 flights were canceled and at least 80 000 households were left without electricity in Washington, Virginia and Maryland on Monday, December 9. &#8203;A new storm is expected to move in by the end of the week.
Dangerously cold temperatures and wind chills are forecast to persist in the western half of the United States, with temperatures about 10 to 30 degrees below average from Rocky Mountains, Great Lakes and Mississippi Valley.
Quick moving clipper systems are forecast to move across the Great Lakes on Tuesday and Wednesday producing "lake effect" - lake enhanced snow over the Great Lakes through Wednesday morning. Lake effect snow will continue downwind from the Great Lakes through Wednesday evening in the wake of the clippers.

You are asking me to believe you were testing the heretics. Yes, I am compelled to believe that sooner than the irrational statements and assertions you make regarding your faith in Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming.

The larger point remains... no matter how obvious it is that your belief system is based on unproven or unprovable principles AND your claims (especially in this case) are clearly false there is NOTHING in your character that compels you to admit you are wrong. That makes you a very untrustworthy source of information and demonstrates seriously flawed reasoning skills.

If I may suggest: take a community ed. course on basic logic or some sort of discussion and argumentation class. Your contributions to these threads could only improve.

Now we know why Aintartiker is a-meltin!

__________

SAN FRANCISCO — A big, hot blob hiding beneath the bottom of the world could be evidence of a long-sought mantle plume under West Antarctica, researchers say.

The possible hotspot — a plume of superheated rock rising from Earth's mantle — sits under Marie Byrd Land, a broad dome at West Antarctica's edge where many active volcanoes above and below the ice spit lava and ash. The hot zone was discovered with seismic imaging techniques that rely on earthquake waves to build pictures of Earth's inner layers, similar to how a CT scan works.

Of course, you have proved this mantle plume started warming the Earth overmuch, beginning a few centuries ago, & wasn't doing it thousands of years ago.

Its like the sun that could easily account for the present Earth warming........ but doesn't.

Where did you see the information that the mantle plume has been active for a few centuries but wasn't active thousands of years ago?

The AGW scientists told us the west Antarctic peninsula was warming because of global warming, the ice shelves were calving because of global warming. I can't remember one pronouncement of a heated mantle plume being cited as a possible cause.

"fun farts" reads, but does not report the silly goofy, erroneous pronouncements of toxic topix AGW deniers.

Some years ago, previously unknown or uninvestigated submarine Antarctic volcanoes were toted by toxic topix AGW deniers as the reason for W.Antarctic warming...... now the toxic topix AGW deniers, immediately jump on the mantle plume as the reason for Antarctic warming.

"fun farts" has allied itself with a distinctly & stinking unscientific bunch of cronies with poorly(or non-) earned hi skule DEE-plooomaas, & now must defend its bunch as poorly as "fun farts" can.

The undersea volcanoes have been known and do cause ice melt and glacier calving. I was asking about your statement that the mantle plume had been known for centuries.

Eruption from Italy’s Mount Etna volcano closes Catania airport:

December 18, 2013 – ITALY – Catania airport in Sicily remains shut due to an ongoing eruption of nearby Mount Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe, airport officials say. Catania, along with the smaller airport of Comiso, was closed on Sunday due to the clouds of ash in the sky. The company that manages Catania, Sec, said the ‘direction and intensity of the wind’ meant that ash from the eruption was a danger to flights. Five flights were cancelled on Monday and were re-routed to Palermo also in Sicily or to Reggio Calabria in the neighboring Calabria region. Eruptions on Etna are relatively frequent but the latest activity, which began on Saturday, is the most intense in several months. The lava flow can be seen from Catania and Taormina
