Tell Us, Oh Goracle: Are These Guys Part of Your “Consensus” of Scientists?

If so, your Chicken Little bit is screwed…

“Everything we thought we knew about X-ray images of the Sun is now out of date,” says Leon Golub from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Massachusetts, US. “We’ve seen many new and unexpected things. For that reason alone, the mission is already a success.”

Dazzling new images reveal the ‘impossible’ on the Sun – New Scientist Space

“Almost every day, we look at the data and we say – what the heck was that?” says Golub, a member of the XRT science team.

Remember, these guys are the “experts” on the single-biggest planetary climatological influence in the entire bloody solar system.

Another surprise sighting is that of giant magnetic field loops crashing down onto the Sun’s surface as if they were collapsing from exhaustion, a finding that Golub describes as “impossible”. Previously, scientists thought they should emerge from the Sun and continue blowing out into space.

Can it be clearer, Goracle? They have discovered everything they believed concerning their study of the Sun was wrong.

So stop trying to make out that a sofa-sitting, sideline riding “scientist” like yourself knows jack shit about how Earth’s climate works, when the people actually doing research in the field–as opposed to presenting Powerpoint slides to the rubes, as you do–have just had their world turned upside down.
