Record October Ice Gains On Greenland; Low Solar Activity Persists; + Unprecedented Gamma-Ray Burst “Made Currents Flow In The Earth”

Record October Ice Gains On Greenland

Continuing the trend reversal that began in 2013, Greenland’s ice sheet has started the 2022-2023 season in comparatively impressive fashion.

Yesterday, the island logged Surface Mass Balance (SMB) gains never before witnessed during the month of October in data extending back to 1981.

Daily gains of 7+ Gigatons were registered by the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) on Monday — unprecedented for the time of year:


Moreover, the season —overall– continues to comfortably track above the 1981-2010 mean:


Greenland, once the poster by for ‘Anthropogenic Global Warming’, is letting the side down.

And undoubtedly, as inconvenient data set after inconvenient data set continues to roll in, the Greenland Ice Sheet will go the same way as Polar Bears and The Great Barrier Reef; that is, swept under the rug, never to be mentioned again, due to their real-world data points continuing to jar with –and potentially upend– The Narrative.

Low Solar Activity Persists

The face of the Sun is almost blank.

Despite four numbered sunspot groups peppering the surface, they are all small, insignificant and quiet.

As a result, solar activity remains very low:

Quite Sun. These sunspots have simple magnetic fields that pose little threat [SDO/HMI].

This has largely been the story of Solar Cycle 25 so far.

Officially commencing in December, 2019, SC25 –although slightly outperforming its predecessor, SC24– is progressing within the expected range; that is, the cycle is on course to be another historically weak one, markedly lower than SC21, SC22 and SC23:

Solar Cycle 25 progression (green line) compared to 24, 23, 22 & 21 [updated Oct 18, 2022 —]

Also as predicted, the cycle’s strength appears to be waning somewhat — ‘the curve is flattening’.

This likely means a persisting migraine for the AGW Party, because as has ALWAYS occurred throughout known time, a drop in solar activity coincides with a drop in global temperatures — this correlation is well-established and irrefutable.

Clear to see is just how lackluster the two most recent cycles are proving to be. They are the weakest in more than two centuries:

It is fair to conclude that the forecast continuation of the Sun’s slumberous trajectory will continue to impact global temperatures, which, as of Sept, 2022 — the latest data point– are some 0.47C off the 2016 peak and falling, according to the satellites.

Unprecedented Gamma-Ray Burst “Made Currents Flow In The Earth”

Astronomers have never seen anything quite like it,” reads the opening line of a Dr Tony Phillips’ article.

On October 9, 2022, Earth-orbiting satellites detected the strongest gamma-ray burst (GRB) in modern history: ‘GRB221009A’. The blast was so strong that it caused electrical currents to flow through the surface of our planet.

Dr. Andrew Klekociuk in Tasmania recorded the effect using an Earth Probe Antenna:

Note: Data from STIX have been flipped (increasing counts go down) to ease comparison of the two waveformsNWC is a VLF transmitter in Australia.

The blue curve is a signal from Klekociuk’s antenna, which was sensing VLF (very low frequency) currents in the soil at the time of the blast. The orange curve shows the gamma-ray burst recorded by the high-energy STIX telescope on Europe’s Solar Orbiter spacecraft, one of many spacecraft that detected the event — clear to see, the waveforms are an almost perfect match.

“I am a climate scientist at the Australian Antarctic Division–that’s my day job,” says Klekociuk. “VLF is my hobby. I started doing VLF radio measurements in the 1970’s when I was in high school. This is the first time I have detected a gamma-ray burst.”

Klekociuk’s unusual “ham rig” uses Earth itself as a giant antenna. In his back garden he has two metal spikes stuck into the ground 75 meters apart. These are connected to a radio receiver via insulated buried wires.

In recent years, amateur radio operators have been experimenting with this weird kind of antenna to detect VLF radio signals circling our planet in the Earth-ionosphere waveguide. Earth’s crust forms one of the waveguide’s walls, allowing Earth Probe antennas to detect distant transmitters.

“During the gamma-ray burst I detected flickering from multiple stations,” says Klekociuk, who made the below map showing transmission paths illuminated by the GRB:

NWC, VTX3, Mokpo and NML are VLF transmitters Klekociuk monitors using his Earth Probe Antenna. GRB effects were observed for all except NML, which was outside the radiation footprint.

Researchers have known since 1983 that gamma-ray bursts can ionize Earth’s atmosphere and, thus, disturb the great waveguide. This, however, appears to be the first time anyone has recorded the effect using an Earth Probe Antenna.

The outburst on Sunday, October 9 truly did shock astronomers, continues the article.

Consider this tweet from Phil Evans of the University of Leicester in the immediate aftermath of the burst. Evans, who works with data from NASA’s Swift gamma-ray observatory, adds that the overflowing signal actually broke some of his plotting software.

Researchers have now pinpointed the origin of the burst.

It came from a dusty galaxy some 2.4 billion light years away, almost certainly triggered by a supernova explosion.

This is actually the closest GRB ever recorded, accounting, at least in part, for its extreme intensity.

“In our research group, we’ve been referring to this burst as the ‘BOAT’, the Brightest Of All Time, because when you look at the thousands of bursts gamma-ray telescopes have been detecting since the 1990s, this one stands apart,” says Jillian Rastinejad, an astronomer at Northwestern University who has been monitoring the burst’s afterglow using the Gemini South Telescope in Chile.

29 Thoughts to “Record October Ice Gains On Greenland; Low Solar Activity Persists; + Unprecedented Gamma-Ray Burst “Made Currents Flow In The Earth””

  1. I am furthermore surprised about the recent graph from FMI (Northern Hemisphere Snow Mass), beginning with extraorinary high data, and then a sudden cut: latest observation 09. October 2022. Nine days without update. Do they have to “adjust” their systems?

    1. “The GCW/FMI SWE Tracker is a product of the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI), based on GlobSnow snow water equivalent (SWE). It was developed as part of the GCW Snow Watch project. It illustrates the current Northern Hemisphere snow water equivalent relative to the long-term mean and variability. NOTE: The SWE retrievals can be unreliable in summer between approximately late May and early October. Therefore, the plots might not be updated during that period.”
      Early October is long gone ….

    Just think if that Burst had been at HALF the distance…we would not be reading about the burst!!!
    And was this burst a direct hit or a glancing blow? Hey Cap, Thank you for all, your hard work Sir.

    Whenever i read about Greenland ice gains I wonder what percentage

    of statistical insecurity those numbers have to deal with.

    The area is pretty large and numbers must be estimates to some

    degree, but how much 1-5% for years could make a HUGE difference

    and I am sure that DMI would never estimate more snow or less ablation.

    Considering how much BS is going on with UHI temps and corrections

    in general I expect the last years real ice gains to have been enormous

    COVID, climate refugees & the great reset: recycling narratives for a technocratic AI social credit takeover
    Behind nearly every WEF climate & pandemic narrative is a 4IR solution facilitating the great reset: perspective
    Behind nearly every WEF climate and pandemic proposal is a technocratic solution facilitating the unelected globalists’ great reset agenda by way of the fourth industrial revolution.
    When COVID came along, the WEF took many of the outcomes it wished to achieve with climate change — less driving and flying, narrative control, and track-and-trace digital surveillance — and imposed them onto the pandemic response, so that the differences in desired outcomes became almost indistinguishable.
    Accelerating the erosion of individual ownership, sovereignty, autonomy, privacy, and liberty in the name of fighting both climate change and the pandemic, the architects of the great reset continue to push digital identity for all, programmable digital currencies, mass data collection and surveillance, individual carbon footprint trackers, corporate ESG scoring, less meat consumption, limited travel and mobility, censorship, and the merger of corporation and state through public-private partnerships.
    Now that the COVID control narrative is collapsing, climate change is clawing its way back to the forefront, as evidenced by the 31 sessions dedicated specifically to “climate and nature” at this year’s WEF annual meeting.
    And just like with COVID, climate change solutions require technologies emerging from the fourth industrial revolution to program, monitor, and enforce compliance.
    “Some leaders and decision-makers who were already at the forefront of the fight against climate change may want to take advantage of the shock inflicted by the pandemic to implement long-lasting and wider environmental changes. They will, in effect, make ‘good use’ of the pandemic by not letting the crisis go to waste” — COVID-19: The Great Reset, Klaus Schwab & Thierry Malleret, 2020
    Digital Identity For Climate Refugees & Vaccine Passports

    Climate change is said to displace millions of people, and the fourth industrial revolution will provide a way to document and aid these “climate refugees” with digital identity.

    The “good” Canuks and EU [coldbacks] and Mexican/little latitude [wetbacks] and American [dry/droughtbacks] “climate refugees” with “digital identities” will all need to be sorted out/high-graded as General Winter GSM/Cooling [and associated droughts and global dimming] continues to advance on the “Big Ball”.ww.

      I don’t ever remember hearing that before! We had a drier summer in Missouri than the last 5-10 summers, but it was more like the summers we used to get previously. And the great river didn’t go dry back then. Perhaps because the Missouri River, which feeds into the Mississippi, arises out West where they are having drought conditions. I’ll have to see how that tributary is doing.

      When my Grandma was young the great Mississip’ froze over and they drove wagons pulled by teams of horses across it. She also said it snowed once in the month of June. Tho I could find no record of that, I’ll believe my Grandma before I’ll believe govt records.

      1. Deb

        Yep, it looks like the Missouri River is low as well, lots of what they are calling drought all over its watershed. I call it a “normal” summer and fall here.

    2. Homo Erectus

      So when did the multi-letter crowd start becoming so interested in Mississippi River traffic?
      Mississippi enacted its first criminal provision dealing with sodomy in 1839, which was defined via the common law. The law provided punishment of up to ten years’ imprisonment for anal sex (both homosexual and heterosexual). It also applied to private consensual activity. In 1937, in the first sodomy court case in the state, the Supreme Court of Mississippi held, in State v. Hill, that cunnilingus was not a “crime against nature” and thus not criminal. In 1942, the Mississippi Legislature authorized a recodification of state law with that power given to the Attorney General. The Attorney General changed the heading over the sodomy law from “crime against nature” to “unnatural intercourse”. Due to this change, the Mississippi Supreme Court ruled in 1955 in State v. Davis that cases of fellatio (oral sex) could also be prosecuted.[2] So why is there nothing in here about Mississippi River traffic?

      1. Deb

        Where do I start, lol?

      2. Deb

        Let’s see…Mississippi River and the state of Mississippi are two completely different, unrelated entities.

        I’m not going to touch your issues…
