Other WordPress Blog Cycles Articles

WordPress is a huge site containing very many blogs. Just a selection of cycles articles that have appeared in some of them. Please use the numbered heading links to visit the various blog articles all of which are concerned with medium to long term climate change. This is an important subject for future human welfare.

1. Papers on the Milakovitch cycles and climate

Posted by Ari Jokimäki on January 4, 2010

This is a list of papers on the role of Milankovich cycles in Earth’s climate, especially in past climate changes. The list is not complete, and will most likely be updated in the future in order to make it more thorough and more representative.

2. Milankovitch Cycles

James Hansen has a new paper (a draft for review), “Paleoclimate Implications for Human-Made Climate Change.” We’ll discuss it in a future post. There’s a so-called “review” by Martin Hertzberg at WUWT in which he claims that Hansen fails to understand the Milankovitch cycles. But it’s Hertzberg whose understanding is a failure.

3. Global Warming Projections using Solar Cycles

Roger Andrews states “In previous attempts to estimate how much global warming was solar and how much anthropogenic I used TSI, i.e. the sum of the amplitudes of all the solar cycles, to define solar forcing, with the implicit assumption being that all the solar cycles impact temperature in direct proportion to their amplitude. But now I’m going to assume that for reasons as yet unexplained some cycles have a larger proportionate impact than others.

So here I will attempt to match the global sea surface (SST) and surface air temperature (SAT) records using a phenomenological model that applies different forcings to each solar cycle. The cycles I used were Tim’s 426.5, 238.9, 112.5, 78.9 and 57.2 year cycles. The shorter 11-year cycles were ignored.”

4. Solar Cycles Cause Global Warming and Cooling

By Nick Anthony Fiorenza, ICECAP, June 3, 2011

Planetary warming has also been observed on Mars, Jupiter, Pluto, and on Neptune’s largest moon Triton during the decades following the peak of the “Solar Grand Maximum” – wonder why – there are no humans there! And Pluto is moving further from the sun in its orbit, thus it should be cooling, but instead it is warming. This is but one blatant indicator that suggests that the climate change on Earth is due to solar changes and our intersellar environment rather than mere human antics.

More importantly, the Sun is now changing from its Solar Grand Maximum to its Solar Grand Minimum. The Earth heats up after a Solar Grand Maximum, lagging a bit after the peak. With a Solar Grand Minimum now on its way, a “global cooling” may be on the horizon–a natural oscillation occurring in much longer solar cycles.

5. Glacial Cycles Part 1

There’s really no doubt that astronomical cycles have influenced the growth and decay of ice on planet earth for the last 5 million years or so. The subject came up recently, and there seems to be a lot of confusion on the issue, so let’s take a closer look at the influence of astronomical factors on earth’s cryosphere.

First, how can we be sure that astronomical cycles have any influence at all? The answer is, that the growth and decay of ice shows cyclic influences with the same periods as astronomical cycles. The statistical significance is so high, and the synchronization so persistent, that frankly it’s pretty much impossible that there’s no relationship. And I think we can safely conclude that it’s not earth’s glacial changes that are causing the astronomical cycles.

Followed by part 2.


About Ray Tomes

Ray's career was in computer software development including system software design, economic modeling, investments. He spent 15 years full time on cycles research and has spoken on cycles and related topics at conferences and seminars around the world. He retired at age 42 to study cycles full time and work out “The Formula for the Universe” and as a result developed the Harmonics Theory as an explanation for observed patterns of cycles and structure of the Universe. His current project is the development of CATS (Cycles Analysis & Time Series) software, and collecting and organizing large quantities of time series data and analyzing this data to test and confirm Dewey's findings in an organized way. Interested in all aspects of cycles especially climate change and causes.
