Some times there are things you look at and just go: “Wha?” …
And some times there are people who find more of them than most anyone else.
IMHO, Vukcevic is one of those people. He’s already found a great little predictor formula for how the sun will cycle. Now he’s got this correlation of magnetic field strength and the Arctic temperature anomaly. Who knew?
While these are not long on mechanism, I don’t find that an issue. For centuries science proceeded from observation, to correlation, to thesis, to … So I see the finding of interesting correlations to be the first step of classical science. The “Say What?” moment that makes you look in a new direction.
There are a lot more and more interesting graphs in the page, here:
But I have not asked for permission to use the graphics, so I’m not going to pull out the best bits…
So I’ve read it. Find it terribly intriguing. And have no idea what to do with it. That wonderful state of bliss when you are aware there is something Very Important that you can see happening, but don’t have a clue about how it works or what it does.
The basic thesis seems to be that the mag fields somehow steer the flow of arctic currents, and through them, change the weather. This might be a simple connection between an electric conductor moving in a mag field (salty water) or perhaps one could even speculate a method for The Electric Universe folks to connect Galactic Currents to events on earth. Who knows where it might lead.
But Vukcevic is a careful worker and generally gets his facts and math right. So something is connecting those two things. But what? Why? How? To what effects? One possible is that he also has a graph showing that the AMO tracks along too. So maybe our whole solar cycle to ocean cycle connection can come through a direct connection via magnetic fields. Now that would be a really annoying result. (I use “It’s done with magnets” as a flag for most likely bogus theories.) But nature doesn’t mind annoying me, so maybe “AMO change is done with magnets” is where we will end up.
It’s times like this I wish I had a dozen more hours in each day…
