& Climate Changes
Extreme weather incidents - i.e. disastrous flooding from extreme
precipitation - has always existed ... and well before the introduction of
human industrial/consumer CO2 emissions ... the name Noah rings a bell,
Much research has been done on determining the connection between solar
activity and weather/climate conditions.
Studies investigating the relationship between the sun and flooding
continue to be pursued. The newest research examined solar forcing and the
floods of central Europe using river discharge data and varved sediments.
The peer-reviewed findings:
The three researchers discovered that flood frequency in both records is
significantly correlated to changes in two types of solar activity,"
namely, (1) "the solar Schwabe cycle" and (2) "multi-centennial
oscillations." And they thus further conclude that (3) "the unexpected
direct response of variations in River Ammer flood frequency to changes in
solar activity might suggest that the solar top-down mechanism is of
particular relevance for hydro-climate extremes.
This study determined that flooding frequency over 5,500 years was tied to
solar activity across inter-annual and multi-centennial timescales.
Clearly, CO2 emissions and other human influences are not a prerequisite
for extreme precipitation and the resulting flood disasters.
