A warm spell and a low-dipping jet stream are fueling the monster storms that are spawning tornadoes this week across a wide swath of the country, weather experts said. More storms are expected as the sun’s current coronal mass ejections CME activity may be causing unusual number of tornadoes by pushing the jet stream further south and creating warmer weather.
Mitch Battros writes, “A new X1.3-class flare has just fired off from sunspot region 1429 at 1:03 AM (PST) on March 7, 2012. Region 1429 is now at solar meridian center - this flare will be heading directly to Earth. Although the initial hit to Earth occurred within 10 minutes of the event, it is always the following cloud of plasma (charged particles) taking 48 hours to hit Earth - which will cause potential damage to satellites, power grids, and extreme weather conditions.

Severe storms, tornadoes are possible across the Midwest and South. Local emergency officials encourage residents to be alert, and prepared. Mitch Battros presents fascinating, and sometimes shocking, research from the world's top scientists. “In a paper recently published in the journal Nature Physics, a team of scientists shows that missing electrons are swept away from the planet by a tide of solar wind particles during periods of heightened solar activity.”
"This is an important milestone in understanding Earth's space environment," said lead study author Drew Turner, an assistant researcher in the UCLA Department of Earth and Space Sciences and a member of UCLA's Institute for Geophysics and Planetary Physics (IGPP). "We are one step closer towards understanding and predicting space weather phenomena."
During powerful solar events such as coronal mass ejections, parts of the magnetized outer layers of Sun's atmosphere crash onto Earth's magnetic field, triggering geomagnetic storms capable of damaging the electronics of orbiting spacecraft. These cosmic squalls have a peculiar effect on Earth's outer radiation belt, a doughnut-shaped region of space filled with electrons so energetic that they move at nearly the speed of light.
Just as the Sun's solar activity affects the Earth's magnetic field which has a dramatic affect on Earth's "weather" i.e. earthquakes, floods, volcanoes, and hurricanes; so does this wave of electrical currents affect the human body's magnetic field? Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) provides empirical evidence of how magnetic fields can influence human emotions.
Solar Cycle 24 is in full swing and is predicted by NASA, and NOAA to be up to 50% stronger than its 'record breaking' predecessor. The magnetic influence produced by the Sun which will usher in what is described by our ancient ancestors as "the transition" bringing us to a new state-of-being".
