Argentina – Heavy snowfall in Chubut

Persistent snowfall forecast until Thursday, August 1. Fifty to 100 cm (20 to 40 inches) of snow expected

METEOROLOGICAL ALERT TUESDAY JULY 30, 2019 – At dawn on Tuesday, the National Meteorological Service (SMN) issued an alert for persistent snowfall that will affect a sector of Chubut.

Until Thursday morning, 50 to 100 cm of accumulated snow expected.

The snow will affect the central and northern Chubut mountain range, Neuquén mountain range and Río Negro mountain range.–se-esperan-entre-50-y-100-cm-de-nieve_a5d403cc364756e1d2f613fc4

Why Phi? – exoplanetary resonances of HD 40307

Moons of Pluto

This one may have slipped through the net, so to speak. The link to Pluto is explained below.

Star HD 40307 has six planets orbiting between 7 and 198 days, but here the focus will be on the outer three: e, f and g. These were reported in 2012 (whereas b, c, and d were found in 2008).

However, it seems the resonances described below have been overlooked, if lack of related internet search results can be relied on.

First the relevant orbit numbers, in days:
200 e = 6924.0
134 f = 6925.12
35 g = 6923.0

The conjunctions (alignment of two planets with the star) work out as follows:
66 e-f (200-134) = 6921.73
99 f-g (134-35) = 6925.87
165 e-g (200-35) = 6924.21

But 66, 99 and 165 are all divisible by 33 so we have:
2 e-f = 3 f-g = 5 d-e
(2, 3 and 5 are Fibonacci numbers)
2 e-f = 209.7493 d
3 f-g = 209.8748 d
5 d-e = 209.8246 d

An analogy in our solar system would be three of the moons of Pluto. Quoting Wikipedia:
The ratios of synodic periods are such that there are 5 Styx–Hydra conjunctions and 3 Nix–Hydra conjunctions for every 2 conjunctions of Styx and Nix.

UHI In The 2003 European Heatwave

The UK had a week of hot weather in early August 2003.  I was there a few days earlier freezing my tail off at the beach in Christchurch. Coldest summer beach day of my life.

All of the hottest temperatures during that heatwave were right around the urban heat island of London.

The hottest day was August 9th.  One thermometer at Heathrow reported 100 degrees, and another one close by reported 95 degrees, It is amazing what jet exhaust can do to a thermometer.

Temperatures reported so far this year in the GHCN database are much lower than 2003, but I will wait a few days to see how that changes.

Alarmists Getting Desperate

Tom Steyer is now paying money to interfere with my videos.  Brilliant marketing putting a global warming scam ad in the middle of a video exposing his scam.
