For those of you interested, there was a huge X-class solar flare yesterday. Possible northern lights at lower latitudes the next couple days.

http://spaceweather.com/

GEOMAGNETIC STORM UPDATE: A CME propelled toward Earth by this morning's X5-class solar flare is expected to reach our planet on March 8th at 0625 UT (+/- 7 hr). Analysts at the Goddard Space Weather Lab, who prepared the CME's forecast track, say the impact could spark a strong-to-severe geomagnetic storm. Sky watchers at all latitudes should be alert for auroras. Aurora alerts: text, phone.

guilty as ch@rged.. =; ..i couldn't help poking a little fun at your....sensitivities and irritable bowel syndrome..

I'd suggest you lighten up Francine, the tightness in your undies is shutting off the supply to your

To assess whether the airborne fraction is indeed increasing, Wolfgang Knorr of the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Bristol reanalyzed available atmospheric carbon dioxide and emissions data since 1850 and considers the uncertainties in the data.

In contradiction to some recent studies, he finds that the airborne fraction of carbon dioxide has not increased either during the past 150 years or during the most recent five decades.

The research is published in Geophysical Research Letters.


And, btw..CO2 accounted for 0.04% of the atmosphere in 1860 and 0.04% today, sooooo.. CO2 isn't a cause of warming - at least not now, and not over the last 150 years, as your hysterics claim. And despite the predictions of climate-carbon cycle models, no trends in the airborne fraction can be found. Information is a good thing, you really shouldn't be scared.

I doubt they'll be visible here in N.GA...but will look anyway.

That's pretty far south....

I've only seen them 3 times. first time was riding my bike back home in the Chicago area about 12:30am after a closing shift at McDonald's. 2nd was on an Alaska cruise - it was pretty impressive. 3rd was at my mother in law's cabin in Northern Wisconsin, where if you turn the lights off, the sky is incredible. The Milky Way isn't just a faint band - it's clearly obvious.

Auroras are occaisionally observed pretty far south, but Georgia would be pushing it.

I'll take my chances here. They might force me to join Alpha Flight.
