More evidence El Nino is linked to the planets and Sun
The recent announcement by World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) that El Niño may return later in 2017 is old news for some of us but great news for QS mission! Back in July 2016 the Quakescanner mission had already published results from it's model forecast which was strongly predicting that the odds were 80% in favour of a return to rising temperatures from June/July onwards.
Quakescanner, (which recently completed a 184 public trial of it's ability to forecast earthquakes - resulting in what is believed to be the world's first statistically significant long range earthquake forecast) introduced an experimental “El Niño” indicator back in early 2016. Although a beta feature, the indicator was able to predict over 81% of El Niño years in the past 84 years (see original link from July 2016 here). But... whilst predicting past conditions is useful, the real test is in predicting future conditions. To this end, the model was indicating a short rise in December/Jan followed by a “significant rise” in July 2017. According to this BBC article, it now appears that Scientists from the WMO have caught up. Announcing this week that El Niño may return later in 2017. (see WMO El Niño / La Niña “bulletin” here)
As predicted by Quakescanner, there was indeed a small rise in the December/January 2016 figures according to Klaus Wolter who maintains the MEI SST Index – see link here. The rise in December which was driven by Jupiter/Venus is a common feature. Almost without fail, Venus interacting with Saturn and Jupiter leads to monthly deviations that are out of step with the general trend at the time.
The WMO projection is great news for the Quakescanner mission and further supports the evidence that planets and the Sun do indeed have a huge impact on our planets climate.
