Switching magnetic poles on the sun – a second report. Global warming, huh…..

Switching magnetic poles on the sun – a second report.  Global warming, huh…..

“A storm is coming: Sun’s poles are set to FLIP within four months and it could lead to bad weather and radio disruption – These bursts can lead to space storms and changes to Earth’s climate”

“During this…activity the outbursts of solar energy…can affect the planet’s temperature.

‘It looks like we’re no more than three to four months away from a complete field reversal,’ solar physicist Dr Todd Hoeksema of Stanford University told Nasa Science.

When a magnetic field flips it causes the current sheet to become wavy, which Scherrer described to Science@Nasa as being like the seams on a baseball.

As Earth orbits the Sun, the planet dips in and out of the sheet and these transitions can cause stormy space weather.

It can also affect cosmic rays, which are particles that travel almost at light speed, and these rays can be dangerous to astronauts and space stations. Some researchers believe these rays also directly affect how cloudy Earth is.”
