The following story and in-depth
interview with "rebel" astrophysicist James McCanney was originally
scheduled for our September 2003 issue.
That turned out to be the
first month of a still ongoing temporary suspension of publication
The SPECTRUM due to the departure of a member of our tiny staff.
Readers may remember - from the provocative front-page feature story
of our May 2003 issue - that astrophysicist Jim McCanney offers very
unconventional views (compared to normal textbook doctrine)
concerning what the forces are which really control planetary
activities like weather.
Jim’s insight that the important parameters
to consider are actually ELECTRICAL in nature has far-reaching
implications which extend beyond even the "radical" physics that Jim
is comfortable operating within. But that is a story for another
Similarly, while knowledgeable readers of The SPECTRUM are always
eager for insights about how such suspicious covert operations like
Chemtrails may be contributing to the ever more crazy
weather and Earth changes we’re all observing and experiencing,
these are not a part of Jim’s current perspective. But what
address still provides important insights as to how secret
electromagnetic shenanigans could be a lot more effective than is
officially admitted to be the case!
Rick Martin has brought together a collection of data, about what is
going on these days with Mother Earth, that we are likely to look
back upon as merely the "tip of the iceberg" of what’s yet to come.
Serious questions are being raised that have no good answers in
conventional science because that well-controlled religion holds
tightly onto absurd, outdated dogma rather than recognizing
important subtle-energy interactions that exist among the various
celestial beings who comprise our ALIVE solar system.
"To understand Earth weather, you first have to understand
that the Sun’s fusion is not in the core, it’s up at the surface of
the Sun. That translates into tremendous electrical energy in the
The planets, and the comets, and the moons of the
Solar System, all are discharging this battery (or capacitor) that’s
built-up around the Sun. In the process of discharging this
capacitor, the electrical energy is blowing through the Solar System
all the time and is, basically, the cause of our weather."
- James McCanney
Anybody who has been paying attention knows that we’ve been having
some really weird weather over the last several months.
it’s been downright incredible! And it shows no signs of returning
to "normal" anytime soon.
There are many factors influencing our crazy weather about which the
general public is not being informed. Even the conventionally
schooled meteorologists don’t have a clue. But in an effort to gain
an understanding of what’s really going on, I’ve taken the
opportunity to have a follow-up interview with physicist James McCanney. And I believe, after reading this story, you’ll be glad I
It’s important to give people like Professor McCanney a platform to
voice unconventional yet meritorious views. And as has often been
the case with people on the cutting edge of science, this is seldom
allowed. It is a great loss to humanity when scientists of such
groundbreaking vision are censored.
The views and concepts expressed by James McCanney are clearly and
reasonably stated. It boggles the mind that so many of the old
models so closely held by atmospheric physicists, by NASA, and by so
many others within the "scientific community" don’t crumble to
pieces from the sheer weight of not holding up to the test of either
time or what’s plainly unfolding right in front of their faces.
I would personally like to thank and applaud James McCanney for his
brave and unbending efforts of bringing forth truth for the greater
good of humanity. I would even request our readership to hold him in
As is always the case with multi-faceted stories, I would like to
tie together some necessary background information prior to
beginning the interview. This will, hopefully, provide a broader
view from which to understand the concepts presented here.
What follows are two press releases from an international group
called the World Meteorological Organization concerning the global
I’ll follow that with
James McCanney’s new webpage information
report called The Sun-Earth Connection Forecast & Report. Then I
will provide a summary of some representative Earth-changes data,
prior to moving into some information about Immanuel Velikovsky’s
I’ll then share a press release from NASA about the "oldest
known planet", and then some brief information about Mars and its
close approach to Earth. With that as background, we’ll then move
into the conversation with Professor McCanney.
With that said, let’s begin with the following press release:
World Meteorological Organization:
"Our Future Climate"
WMO Calls For Timely Global Action On Climate
GENEVA (3/23/03) - We are all stakeholders in our future climate. It
is to the benefit of all nations to work together to better
understand our climate in order to adapt to it, and to prevent and
mitigate any adverse impact. Recent occurrences of floods, tropical
cyclones, droughts, and other extreme weather and climate-related
events could well be glimpses of what a change in climate could
bring upon us. The future cost of inaction to protect climate is
expected to exceed by far the cost of timely action. This is
stressed in the message of the Secretary-General of the World
Meteorological Organization (WMO), Professor Godwin O.P. Obasi, to
the international community on the occasion of the World
Meteorological Day (March 23, 2003).
The changes in climate observed over the last decades will continue,
presenting urgent and growing challenges to many aspects of our
lives, including health. Addressing those challenges in his message,
Professor Obasi warns that:
"The most immediate threats to humankind
relate to increased variability in the intensity and frequency of
storms and other extreme weather and climate-related events such as
floods and droughts, heat waves in major urban areas, and the impact
of sea-level rise on low-lying coastal regions."
Already, over the last ten years, the number of disasters of
hydrometeorological origin has increased significantly.
drought and desertification seriously threaten
the livelihood of over 1.7 billion people who depend on the land for
most of their needs. The 1997/1998 El Niño event, the strongest of
the last century, is estimated to have affected 110 million people
and cost the global economy nearly US$100 billion.
Statistics compiled from insurance companies for the period
1950-1999 show that the major natural catastrophes - which are mainly
weather, water and climate-related - caused estimated economic losses
of nearly one trillion US dollars. A leading reinsurance company
estimates global warming impacts could cost US$300 billion annually
Current projections show little change or a slight increase in the
amplitudes of El Niño events over the next 100 years. But with
higher temperatures, the extremes of floods and drought generally
associated with El Niño events could be more severe.
And if that were not enough of an ominous warning, how about this:
According To The World Meteorological Organization, Extreme Weather
Events Might Increase
GENEVA (7/2/03) - Record extremes in weather and climate events
continue to occur around the world. Recent scientific assessments
indicate that, as the global temperatures continue to warm due to
climate change, the number and intensity of extreme events might
INCREASE, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) states in a
press release issued today.
In June, record high temperatures were recorded across southern
France, with maximum temperatures exceeding 40°C [104ºF] in parts of
southwest France. This resulted in June average temperatures of 5º
to 7ºC above the long-term average. In Switzerland, the month of
June was the hottest in at least the past 250 years, according to
environmental historians. In Geneva, since 29 May, maximum daytime
temperatures did not drop below 25°C [77ºF], making June the hottest
June on record for the city.
[Note: As of late-August, as I am adding some more details to this
story, the HOT trend throughout Europe continues. Paris has had
record-breaking heat topping 104ºF, which is the hottest in the last
50 years. According to the 8/21/03 Daily Record:
"Undertakers in France estimate the recent
heatwave has killed more
than 13,600 people.
"Funeral home giant OGF says almost 3500 people [other stories
indicate the number may be as high as 5,000] will have died in Paris
alone by the end of the month."
Other similarly bizarre (yet
under-reported) weather-related events are occurring elsewhere on
the planet, with no good explanations given. - R.M.]
In the United States, there were
562 tornadoes during May, which
resulted in 41 deaths. This established a record for the number of
tornadoes in any month. The previous monthly record was 399
tornadoes in June 1992. In the eastern and southeastern part of the
U.S., wet and cold conditions prevailed for well over a month.
Weekly negative temperature anomalies [meaning it was colder than
average] of _2ºC [_4ºF] to _6ºC [_11ºF] were experienced in May
while precipitation excesses [meaning it rained more than average],
ranging from 50 mm [2 inches] to 350 mm [13.8 inches] over a period
of more than 12 weeks starting in March 2003, have been recorded.
In India, this year’s pre-monsoon heat wave brought peak
temperatures of between 45ºC [113ºF] and 49ºC [120ºF] which
correspond to weekly temperature departures from the normal of +2ºC
to +5ºC. At least 1400 people died in India due to the hot weather.
In Sri Lanka, heavy rainfalls from Tropical Cyclone 01B exacerbated
already wet conditions, resulting in flooding and landslides and
killing at least 300 people. The infrastructure and economy of
southwestern Sri Lanka was heavily damaged. A reduction of 20-30% is
expected for the output of low-grown tea in the next three months.
These record extreme events (high temperatures, low temperatures,
high rainfall amounts, and droughts) all go into calculating the
monthly and annual averages which, for temperatures, have been
gradually increasing over the past 100 years.
New record extreme events occur every year somewhere on the globe,
but in recent years the number of such extremes have been
increasing. According to recent climate change scientific assessment
reports of the joint WMO/UNEP Intergovernmental Panel on Climate
Change (IPCC), the global average surface temperature has increased
since 1861. Over the 20th century the increase has been around 0.6°C
[1.0ºF]. This value is about 0.15°C [0.3ºF] larger than that
estimated by the previous reports.
New analyses of proxy data for the
Northern Hemisphere indicate that
the increase in temperature in the 20th century is likely to have
been the largest in any century during the past 1000 years.
It is also likely that, in the Northern Hemisphere, the 1990s were
the warmest decade and 1998 the warmest year. While the trend toward
warmer globally averaged surface temperatures has been uneven over
the course of the last century, the trend for the period since 1976
is roughly three times that for the past 100 years as a whole.
Global average land and sea surface temperatures in May 2003 were
the second highest since records began in 1880. Considering land
temperatures only, last May was the warmest on record.
The influence of
El Niño and La Niña on these extreme events is in
general undefined. The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and
its members - the National Meteorological and Hydrological Services
along with various research institutes - will continue to organize
research and document the influence of El Niño and other large-scale
climate phenomena on climate extreme events.
Recently, physicist James McCanney posted a link on his
www.jmccanneyscience.com webpage, updated constantly, to a fantastic
webpage titled The Sun - Earth Connection Forecast & Report.
This is one of the most detailed and scientifically specific pages
you will find anywhere with:
"Earth weather related to solar
conditions based on data gathered daily from the many solar
satellites and the Plasma Discharge Comet Model Solar Surface Fusion
Model and Electric Solar System Model of Professor James M. McCanney,
Since these reports change on a daily basis, and they are extremely
detailed, I will not quote a report verbatim here. While conditions
will undoubtedly change significantly by the time you are reading
this, nevertheless, the information is included here because it is
valuable to gaining a greater understanding of the larger picture.
Here I will list a few "high points" to give you an idea of
important data you’re not getting in the news. These are excerpts
from the 7/27-29/03 and 7/29-31/03 issues of The Sun - Earth
Connection Forecast & Report:
•Solar storm conditions are present, and as a result the Sun-Earth
ALERT condition continues to be in effect.
•An extremely powerful solar proton storm began on July 26, and as
this proton storm tapered-off later in the UT [Universal Time or
Greenwich Mean Time] day on July 26, the influences of a large
coronal hole on the Sun started producing significantly strong solar
winds, creating MINOR to MAJOR electrical storm conditions in
Earth’s Ionosphere and Upper Atmosphere. The electrical storm
conditions continue as of July 29.
•The influence of the large coronal hole, located in the southwest
quadrant of the Sun, continues to produce some extremely HIGH
•Solar winds on July 29 went above the 900 km/s level. The HIGH
solar wind conditions continue to produce electrical discharge and
inter-action storm activity here on Earth. At the moment, electrical
discharge and inter-action storm activity is at active levels, and
this condition is expected to continue for the next few days.
•ACTIVE to ERUPTIVE solar flare conditions are present at this time,
with a 50% or greater probability expected for C-class solar flares,
or possibly larger.
•Electrical Discharge & Inter-Action Storm Activity: ACTIVE to STORM
LEVEL conditions continues at this time.
•The Electrical Discharge & Inter-Action Storm Activity is the solar
electrical discharge and storm activity level, which is present in
Earth’s Ionosphere and Upper Atmosphere, and that is inter-acting
with the Earth.
•Disturbances caused by the Sun, and HIGH levels of solar storm
activity have a profound effect and influence on Earth’s weather and
geological processes, like earthquake and volcanic activity.
•Due to the current effects of HIGH levels of solar electrical
activity and the presence of solar electrical storm conditions, and
the way this HIGH level of activity interacts with Earth, those on
Earth should remain ALERT for increased disturbances in weather,
earthquake, and volcanic activity levels.
•In addition to increased and disturbed weather patterns and
systems, HIGH levels of solar electrical activity and storminess
interact strongly with Earth’s geological processes, and this in
turn creates an increased risk for earthquake and volcanic activity,
with the possibility for some of this geological activity having the
potential to reach extremely strong levels.
•REMEMBER: Higher levels of storminess on the Sun in turn create
higher levels of electrical activity and storminess, including
instability, in Earth’s Ionosphere and Upper Atmosphere, which in
turn have a powerful and direct influence on Earth processes like
weather, earthquake activity, and volcanic activity.
•The Sun continues to remain extremely active, despite the fact that
the current solar cycle should be in much more of a decline than
what it is for this time in the Sun’s 11-year solar cycle.
•Electrical storm activity _ HIGH.
•Unusual weather index HIGH for locations attaching to the
Ionosphere via existing storm cloud systems
•Solar wind speed VERY HIGH.
•X-ray Index (within past 48 hours) - activity VERY HIGH.
•The solar electrical activity and storminess in Earth’s
and Upper Atmosphere have been extremely HIGH over the last
24 hours, with a great deal of the activity centered over North
America and areas of Europe.
•July 27 has already been filled with several
earthquakes: At 02:04:10 UT there was a magnitude 6.6 earthquake in
the Fiji Islands region; a magnitude 6.3 earthquake in the
Region at 03:20:36 UT; a magnitude 6.7-6.9 earthquake in Primorye,
Russia at 06:25:31 UT; a magnitude 6.5 earthquake in the vicinity of
the West Chile Rise; a magnitude 6.0-6.4 earthquake in
Bolivia at 11:41:28 UT.
•Volcanic activity has also been at increased levels due to the HIGH
levels of solar electrical activity and storminess interacting with
Earth: Bezymianny volcano (Kamchatka) woke-up and erupted on July
26, spewing vast amounts of ash, steam, and gas more than 8 km above
the crater of the volcano, and lava from the volcano is moving down
the east slope of Bezymianny at 30 km per hour. On Friday night,
July 25, Popocatepetl volcano near Mexico City, Mexico, shot glowing
rocks and ash high into the sky, startling residents in nearby
communities and raining its ash down on Mexico’s capital city.
For a few additional points of activity, allow me to list data from
The Sun-Earth Connection Forecast & Report for August 3-August 5:
•The extremely strong solar winds that started on July 26, creating
solar electrical storm level conditions in Earth’s Ionosphere and
Upper Atmosphere, continued until the early hours of August 3, at
which time the solar wind speed finally started subsiding. The solar
electrical storm conditions and extremely HIGH solar winds continued
through August 2. The influence of another coronal hole is due by
August 6, when it is very likely another increase in solar wind
speeds to storm condition levels will start being felt again.
•The influence of the EXTREMELY HIGH solar winds that were present
from July 26 through August 2 is expected to interfere with and
disturb Earth’s Ionosphere and Upper Atmosphere for several more
days. Solar winds on August 1 went above 900 km/s on several
occasions, as has been the case numerous times since July 26.
•The sunspot count for August 1 was approximately 120-135.
•The sunspot count for August 2 was approximately 120-135.
•The updated sunspot count for August 3 has raised the sunspot count
to approximately 135-150.
•The sunspot count for the most part has remained at above normal
levels of activity for this time in the Sun’s 11-year solar cycle.
Some mainstream scientific axiom charting of sunspot data is showing
that the sunspot activity is at normal levels, but actual sunspot
activity, continuing to be tracked, shows sunspot activity at above
normal levels of activity.
•Solar eruptions, flaring, coronal mass ejections (CMEs), and other
storm activity on the Sun continue to remain at above normal levels.
A normal sunspot count for this time in the solar cycle should be
approximately 65-70 (and decreasing) sunspots, with a low amount of
solar eruptions, CMEs, flaring, and other types of solar storm
•On August 1 at 00:39:48 UT the solar wind speed reached a high of
981.80 km/s, and then reached the 900 km/s mark several more times
before fluctuation for the remainder of the day in the high 700 km/s
to high 800 km/s level.
Obviously significant activity is occurring within our
System - mostly unreported and poorly understood by the public - that
has a strong impact on the climate and geology of Earth.
