Default Climate report for the solar system

In a few days the empirical modelling will give a fresh injection of hoopla in order to tax people via the decarbonisation agenda. Despite the fact that most nations are making huge efforts to lower exhaust pollutants and rely more on electricity from natural dynamics like wind, waves, heat pumps and so on, it is a huge distraction from solar system climate including the climate of our home planet. For my part, if people are willing to pay for a cleaner environment then good however the pretense of climate as it is presented to the wider population is awful in respect to what climate is and what it does on a solar system scale.

Climate is the rate of change in atmospheric, land and sea surface conditions across latitudes for an entire circuit of the Sun -


The closer to the orbital plane the daily rotational inclination is ,the more pronounced the fluctuation North and South of the Equator while a lesser inclination moderates those fluctuations.

People are supposed to recognise the Polar day/night cycle which allows observers to frame the annual or seasonal fluctuations in the same terms as conditions at either poles in terms of sunrise/sunset, noon and midnight however this is lost to modelling the Earth's atmosphere in terms of a conditions found in a common greenhouse.

To butcher the complex interactions between atmosphere, sea and land surface by ignoring the dynamics which present a background to our planet's unique climate within context of all planets in the solar system who have their own climate based on the same principles is dismaying.

Default Climate report for the solar system

The reception these days to the warnings are mostly groans that it means more taxes and while there is a core of people chanting the usual stuff based on extreme weather events that occasionally hits parts of the world, it has descended from the hyperfuss about a decade ago to noise despite attempts of people to deal with genuine pollutants of the atmosphere (without predictive modelling).

One of the greatest meteorological and planetary events is just beginning this month as Arctic sea ice starts to expand once more and creates millions of square miles of solid surface with the North Pole at its centre.


The orbital surface rotation causes an expansion of area centered around the North Pole where the Sun and solar radiation is constantly out of effect until its reaches a maximum circumference on the December Solstice in a few months.

All planets in the solar system have this expansion/contraction and while planets like Jupiter have a very small expansion as the North pole of the planet always remains very close to the circle of illumination, Uranus has a very large expansion/contraction of that area as the distance from the North/South Poles to the circle of illumination is close to a maximum.

This is not an exercise in throwing good information after bad but it should interest those who realise that there is a place for modelling once the various elements of dynamics and effects are laid out. The days of trying to scare people with the version that passes itself off as climate may have moved to the political sphere but quietly climate research moves to a place which is almost untouched and free from human involvement.
