What modulates our Sun? The majority of science work on the principle that the Sun is self modulating and each solar cycle is a product of a random number generator. There are others that suspect the Sun is modulated by the planets with a special emphasis on Uranus & Neptune. Thanks to Carl Smith who has recently left us we have new knowledge that significantly adds to Jose, Landscheidt & Charvàtovà's work.

Yours Truly on the Barometer Bob Show.

Last Tuesday the 27th January 2011 was something different for both myself and the Barometer Bob Show. This was my first media appearance relating to my research and Barometer Bob (Robert Brookens) ventured into a new area of asking questions relating to the solar connection with climate. Bob has been running his show weekly since 2001 and has had many top line guests such as Joe Bastardi, Judith Curry, James Hansen, Kevin Trenberth etc. I am not in this league but thank Bob for the opportunity to air a different view.

The Barometer Bob show airs (radio & webcast) every Thursday night from 8:00 to around 10 pm Florida time, and can be found HERE. My appearance can be viewed HERE.

Note: The wrong image of myself was displayed in the earlier part of the interview, for those interested this is me below.

Many thanks go to Carl's brother Dave for providing the Domain, Server and Software.
