Paper: Lunar-Tidal Cycles Influences Climate

Obviously, this must all be caused by carbon pollution from you, dear reader, refusing to turn your thermostat to 78 during the height of the summer

(The Hockey Schtick) A paper published today in the International Journal of Climatology finds the 18.6 year lunar-tide cycle influences rainfall and climate over adjacent land areas. According to the authors, in years of strong tides, tide-induced ocean mixing decreases sea surface temperatures and lowers air pressures, which in turn affects rainfall variability over the plains east of the subtropical Andes, South America. The opposite pattern is observed in years of weak tides. The paper adds to other peer-reviewed publications finding a lunar influence on ocean and atmospheric oscillations, which in turn have large scale effects upon climate. The IPCC ignores lunar, solar, and other planetary harmonics, which alone can explain climate change of the past century. 

That paper is here.

Didn’t I briefly mention something about gravity having an influence on climate in a post yesterday? Believe it or not, that was before I saw the Hockey Schtick link via Climate Depot. There are so many natural processes at work that it is foolish to think that any changes in climate are mostly or solely caused by Mankind.

    The IPCC (AND ITS MODELS) ignores lunar, solar, and other planetary harmonics, which alone can explain climate change of the past century.

    Now add gravity, clouds, water vapor, trees, UHI effect, ENSO, ANSO, etc.

    Too many things are not considered or unable to be considered for their models to mean anything. Especially when it has been shown that the models are LOUSY anyway.
