Ignored Climate Forcing or Drivers

The following will be a page on the climate drivers that are linked to Solar and Cosmic activity which are currently ignored by modern meteorologists and climate scientist.

Ignored forcing drivers – Currently only TSI – Total Solar Irradiance is considered to be the energy from our sun that has any potential to impact climate and weather. This is an enormous gap in the forcing of climate through other solar particles and cosmic rays. According to NASA the following graph shows TSI in relation to climate change. The TSI is measured in Watts per meter squared W/m2 .


Cosmic Rays – Our space agencies around the developed countries all record data on the other particles and cosmic rays as they are required to be monitored to protect satellites and forecasting of radio blackouts for various radio communications on earth. Along with the now confirmed Cloud Experiment and Sky experiment proving Henrik Svensmarks theory correct other particle forcing papers are being published and cited.

These include Solar energetic particles which are made up of:

  • Electrons
  • Protons
  • HZE Ions – HZE ions make up a small proportion of cosmic rays, their high charge and high energies cause them to contribute significantly to the overall biological impact of cosmic rays, making them as significant as protons in regard to biological impact. The most dangerous GCRs are heavy ionized nuclei such as Fe +26, an iron nucleus with a charge of +26. Such heavy particles are “much more energetic (millions of MeV) than typical protons accelerated by solar flares (tens to hundreds of MeV)”. HZE ions can therefore penetrate through thick layers of shielding and body tissue, “breaking the strands of DNA molecules, damaging genes and killing cells”. For HZE ions that originate from solar particle events (SPEs), there is only a small contribution toward a person’s absorbed dose of radiation. During a SPE, there is such a small amount of heavy ions generated that their effects are limited. Their energies per atomic mass unit are all significantly less than protons found in the same SPE, meaning that protons are by far the largest contribution to the body exposed during an SPE. HZE Ions can consist of:
    • Carbon (C)
    • Oxygen (O)
    • Magnesium (Mg)
    • Silicon (Si)
    • Iron (Fe)

Beyond the damage to the body, these particles all have an impact on the climate, weather and mental stability as they are all charged particles that will attract opposing charged particles. This often can be water vapor, dust, smoke or other pollution in the atmosphere.

Weather impacts Weather systems are all energetic, regardless of being a positively charged Low Pressure system or a negatively charged High Pressure system, these particle events either strip energy or add energy to these.
