For geosatellites it is important as you said to watch the electron storm density. The threat from this is highly negative charging of the satellite, such as -10KV, in the dark and then when the satellite first comes into the sunlight the ‘leading’ parts of the satellite rapidly discharge to zero via the photoelectric effect. This then produces arcs that cause glitches, destroys materials or burns out electronics. Kind of an EU effect in plasmas.
A most effective weapon… As long as you can explain the Solar output drivers of weather and show the correlations.
All that’s known… Or at least a lot of it, is contained in Ben’s book.
I’m thankful for the insight.
My problem is not knowing the details surrounding the imposition of the. 01% solar forcing effects of TSI.
Who or what authority is responsible for climate scientists being required to use it?
Are they all citing the same source? Why?
That understanding would be useful.
Fiji had an 8.2 Ben, spot on man, I know you saw the ping.

Thank you for uploading FOTW, like clockwork, you guys always meet and always have great topics to ponder.
The Sun is like a burn barrel, down by your car you can feel the electromagnetic effects of it, but when you get 10 yards of it, the thermal effect is the dominant effect. Our sun in close proximity effects close planets with IR. Sure out yonder where the IR don’t go, you got the electro Universe stuff. But in close, how can you ignore what we feel on our faces while highlighting what is beyond earth range? I think you are spending earthquake credits on electro theory while ignoring heat locally. It will never work, the jury is not out, they are silent. the same as no….
Of course the electric effect would play well being so close, It’s just the heat is the other half of the puzzle and so little is explored about it. The emphasis is always on the other half. I think they play well together .
Happy to report I can hear everyone on the call loud & clear
