Living in a Light Bulb

WARNING – Adult Content
If you are easily offended or emotionally attached to Settled Science, Solar Science and/or Climate Science then you are advised to change channels immediately.

The good folk over at Watts Up With That? will provide you with a warm welcome and a warm comfort blanket of Settled Science:

If you are generally of an open minded disposition then you are advised to sit down, relax, and pour yourself a brandy before viewing this adult content because you may be shocked.

If you are a hard core aficionado then simply enjoy the show!

The Warm Up Act
Getting the audience in the right mood is a challenge for television shows.

Typically, a good producer employs an excellent stand up comedian to set the mood.

Similarly, hard core science needs a warm up act to catch the audience’s attention.

Therefore, without further ado, let me introduce you to the stand up florescent lamp.

Fluorescent lamps

No cables – No switch – No tricks – Just illumination driven by electromagnetic particles.

Amazing what electromagnetic particles and fluorescing gases can achieve.

In our daily lives we are accustomed to having an on-off switch to control our fluorescent lights and our bills from the electricity company.

Neon light

On the other hand, Mother Nature provides very spectacular fluorescent light shows [although they are not always in the visible spectrum] without ever receiving a bill from the electricity company.

Natural Fluoresce

In our daily lives we are also accustomed to having Settled Science define our technological world and our understanding of Life, the Universe and Everything.

However, in recent years, many independent thinkers have begun to question Settled Science because so many scientific anomalies are simply swept under the carpet.

This is a slow process of enlightenment similar to that experienced by Truman Burbank in the Truman Show as he realises “certain aspects of his near-perfect world” are illusions.

During the 30th year of the show, Truman notices certain aspects of his near-perfect world that seem out of place.

A theatrical light falls from the artificial morning sky, nearly hitting him (quickly passed off by local radio as an aircraft in trouble that began “shedding parts”) and Truman’s car radio picks up a conversation between the show’s crew tracking his movements.

Truman also becomes aware of more subtle abnormalities within his regular day-to-day life, such as the way in which the same people appear in the same places at certain times each day and Meryl’s tendency to blatantly advertise the various products she buys.

Truman’s supposedly deceased father then reappears on the set dressed as a homeless man and is whisked away as soon as Truman notices him.

Independent thinkers who have questioned the Settled Science of Climate Change are frequently labelled Deniers.

Similarly, the character of Truman Burbank was encouraged to believe he was suffering from Truman Show Delusion.

Despite the best efforts of his family and his best friend Marlon to reassure him, all these events cause Truman to start wondering about his life, realizing how the world seems to revolve around him.

The Truman Show delusion, informally known as Truman Syndrome, is a type of persecutory/grandiose delusion in which patients believe their lives are staged plays or reality television shows.

The term was coined in 2008 by brothers Joel and Ian Gold, a psychiatrist and a neurophilosopher, respectively, after the 1998 film The Truman Show.

Truman Show

Similarly, any independent thinker who questions Settled Solar Science can expect to be labelled a fruitcake, especially if they hypothesise the Earth is spinning inside a fluorescing cloud of gas – just as if they were living inside a fluorescent light bulb.

The First Theatrical Light to Fall from the Sky
The problems for Settled Solar Science begin way back in 1836 when Sir David Brewster realised some Fraunhofer Lines were originating in the terrestrial atmosphere.

When comparing the clear and cloudy spectrums it is evident:
Clouds absorb UVB and emit visible light and infrared radiation.

This is additional observational evidence that indicates:
The atmosphere transforms energy.

This was observed by Sir David Brewster back in 1836:

Sir David Brewster (1836) found that certain lines had strengths that varied with the sun’s elevation and with the seasons. He correctly ascribed these ‘atmospheric lines’ as originating in the terrestrial atmosphere.

Unfortunately, these variable atmospheric absorption lines [in the solar spectrum] seem to have been written out the official scientific script.

The problems for Settled Solar Science continue to this day as they attempt to harmonise upon a constant Total Solar Irradiance calculation from a variety of satellites that have orbited the Earth at different altitudes.


TSI Database

The Ceiling Crashes Down
However, the problems with the satellite data are actually terminal for some of the old chestnuts pedalled by the mainstream.

Plotting the Stable Low TSI values for ACRIM I, ACRIM II, SOVA2 and ERBE against average orbital altitude shows that TSI decreases as altitude increases.

TSI Range

The linear trend indicates that TSI reaches zero at an altitude of about 34,000 kilometres and that the TSI at sea-level reaches [about] 1,388 Watts per square metre.

Unsurprisingly, 1,388 Watts per square metre is well within the range of the TSI observations that have been made at ground level.

The Role of the Sun in Climate Change
Douglas V. Hoyt and Kenneth H. Schatten
Oxford University Press – 1997

Therefore, it is very possible that the Earth is spinning in a cloud of gas that fluoresces when it is penetrated by the solar wind and cosmic rays.

The slow solar wind has a velocity of about 400 km/s…
the fast solar wind has a typical velocity of 750 km/s…

Earth itself is largely protected from the solar wind by its magnetic field, which deflects most of the charged particles; however some of the charged particles are trapped in the Van Allen radiation belt.

A smaller number of particles from the solar wind manage to travel, as though on an electromagnetic energy transmission line, to the Earth’s upper atmosphere and ionosphere in the auroral zones.

The only time the solar wind is observable on the Earth is when it is strong enough to produce phenomena such as the aurora and geomagnetic storms.

Bright auroras strongly heat the ionosphere, causing its plasma to expand into the magnetosphere, increasing the size of the plasma geosphere, and causing escape of atmospheric matter into the solar wind.

Geomagnetic storms result when the pressure of plasmas contained inside the magnetosphere is sufficiently large to inflate and thereby distort the geomagnetic field.

In other words, the Earth’s Magnetosphere and atmosphere stop the vast majority of incoming charged particles through a series of step-down transformations that generate the familiar Fraunhofer Lines and the much touted TSI Spectrum.

Solar Spectrum
The Main Act
Having endured the warm up act it is now time to introduce the main act: Eric Dollard.

Eric Dollard is an Electrical Engineer who is a “living legend” in the field of electrical research.

He is considered by many to be the most knowledgeable expert alive today on the true nature of electricity.

Author of the landmark mathematical papers Symbolic Representation of Alternating Electric Waves and Symbolic Representation of the Generalized Electric Wave, Eric shows how all electric phenomena can be mathematically measured and engineered WITHOUT using calculus or “Maxwell’s Equations.”

Author of Condensed Intro to Tesla Transformers and Theory of Wireless Power, he is also the only person since Tesla’s death to successfully build a real Magnifying Transmitter.

Eric Dollard doesn’t pull any punches.

His approach is direct and knowledgeable and frequently stunning.

Perhaps, for starters, it’s best to focus upon three points from Eric Dollard.

4:00 You can’t see the sun in free space.

4:35 There are no light years as there is no light.

4:52 All the theories collapse when you can’t see the stars in outer space.

Then you might like to consider why the solar spectra observations from the SOHO spacecraft [orbiting at the Earth-Sun L1 point] “do not lend themselves so readily” to being released to the public.

In addition to its scientific mission, it is the main source of near-real-time solar data for space weather prediction.

Along with the GGS Wind and Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE), SOHO is one of three spacecraft in the vicinity of the Earth–Sun L1 point, a point of gravitational balance located approximately 0.99 astronomical unit (AU)s from the Sun and 0.01 AU from the Earth.

Public availability of images
Observations from some of the instruments can be formatted as images, most of which are also readily available on the internet for either public or research use (see the official website).

Others such as spectra and measurements of particles in the solar wind do not lend themselves so readily to this.

Enjoy your brandy!

    I saw the reference to WUWT and the titled “light bulb” and had to laugh. (I like to call him “Light Bulb Watts”, after his hilarious experiment.)

    But, I was glad I read your entire post. The chart of historical TSI was EXTREMELY interesting. My old physics book (circa 1965) stated that “solar constant” was 1340. That was back before we knew we could heat the planet!

  2. Bob Weber says:

    Well done Tim.

    The funny thing about TSI is how a certain individual who also happens to frequent WUWT, someone who spent a very long time studying solar activity and geomagnetism, is hell bent on describing the solar-terrestrial connection with a single number, TSI, that he says has hardly changed in the last three hundred years. Svalgaard & Co sees no solar climate change influence.

    Given the opportunity to elaborate on a comment I made regarding his solar “constant” stance, he falls back to his default “safe” position and doesn’t discuss the ongoing ever-present solar variation. People are catching on to him – it’s too bad the climate sciences are hung up by this too. They will never produce climate models that work as long as they continue to ignore solar variation as they use the same ole TOA TSI number for everything all the time.

    My solar climate model is based on F10.7cm “radio” flux, since it is measured at ground level without interference or bias, has been recorded since the 1940s, and is highly correlated to other parts of the solar spectrum. Photon flux density at TOA changes constantly at all timescales and wavelengths.

    It’s astonishing how few WUWT regulars appear to pay attention to what the weather, the sun, and the moon are doing in realtime. Any attempt to get them to focus on reality gets quickly diverted. Too much emphasis there on ripping to shreds someone’s science paper to understand reality firsthand. I think the problem for them and others is there are apparently no peer-reviewed papers that prove on first principles beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Sun warms the Earth! ‘You can’t claim that’ – if you read between the lines of many commentors – ‘without a peer-reviewed paper saying so first.’ Since we know peer-review is loaded towards CAGW and against everything else, it could be a long time before the Sun-Earth connection is “proven” beyond a shadow of a doubt.
