Hurricane Hypothesis

John DiNardo | 28 October, 2012

The Weather Channel's meteorologists just commented that they are baffled by the extraordinary hazardously low pressure predicted for this Hurricane Sandy over the next few days. The reason why they are baffled is because the authoritative meteorological principle is erroneous regarding the conditions which dictate the strength of hurricanes. Authoritative mainstream meteorological principles state that the warmer the water, the lower the pressure of the hurricane, and hence, the stronger is the hurricane. However, it is not the temperature of the water, but the amount of electricity being discharged from the hurricane cloud's electrical capacitor (or from the ionosphere) to the water or the land below, which (in inverse proportion) dictates the barometric pressure of the hurricane, and which therefore dictates (in direct proportion) the intensity of the hurricane. This unheralded principle explains what mainstream meteorology's erroneous water temperature principle could never explain; that is, why hurricanes are strongest over the ocean, and why they weaken over land. The reason is because water (particularly salt water) is more electrically conductive than dirt, sand, and rock. Given an electric circuit, and there occurs an increase in the electrical resistance in that circuit, the electric circuit's current decreases, and vice versa. The same principle exists in the cloud-to-ground electric circuit (or the ionosphere-to-ground electric circuit) of a hurricane.

New Sprawling Hurricanes such as Sandy and Irene

Perhaps we can get some understanding of this new phenomenon by visualizing the formation of atmospheric electrification, due to some ionizing energy coming from solar winds or solar flares. Now, either in the ionosphere or at lower altitudes into the troposphere, there may occur a buildup of positive ions. We know, from basic principles of electricity and magnetism, that the greater the density of static (stationary) electric charges, the greater is the resultant electrostatic energy field. The atmospheric mass of positive electric charge is just like the positive terminal of a battery. The salt water of the ocean below is a mild electrolytic (conductive) solution containing both positive sodium ions and negative chloride ions. Well, an increasingly dense concentration of atmospheric positive ions will create an intensifying electrostatic energy field extending through the ionosphere-to-troposphere layers. If the sky-to-sea electrical resistance decreases enough, this will permit the discharge of the atmospheric ions down into the sea water. Think of this sky-to-sea electric current as controlled lightning. Now, a lightning bolt is a rather uncontrolled shot of electric charge; like the sudden conduction that occurs when a faulty fluorescent light blinks and flashes. However, a hurricane's moist sea-to-sky atmosphere is semi-conductive, having some resistance so as to limit the amount of sky-to-sea charge flow. Then, the sky-to-sea electric charge flow (current) is not as the brief intense electric bolt of a short circuit, but more of a sustained and limited flow of charge, as a circuit having a resistor between the positive (sky) and the negative (sea) terminals of the circuit.

Now, how might this new "sprawling hurricane" phenomenon relate to the theory just described? Do new sprawling ion fields now form in the ionosphere -- a condition that may have developed over the past several years? New solar hyperactivity has also developed over the past several years. Perhaps new solar phenomena may be linked to the new "sprawling hurricane" phenomenon. Yet, there is more than just new atmospheric electrification patterns to consider in this new era of bizarre geophysical and meteorological phenomena. There is what I suspect has been the dislodging of Earth's solid inner core from its center point, and the related new turbulence of Earth's molten outer core, both of which, I believe, have been caused by this very same solar hyperactivity over the past decade, notwithstanding the 2009ish 18 months of extraordinary solar quiescence. Incidentally, that solar quiescence, punctuating a decade of solar hyperactivity, may be explicable when we begin to study the evidence showing that deep space comets are being gravitationally drawn into our Solar System by the Sun's great gravitational force field.
