Area of convection developing near Vietnam

An area of convection that formed in the South China Sea in late December can be seen here near the coast of Vietnam. The animated imagery shows the system is moving southwestward towards the Malay Peninsula. The area of convection is being monitored for possible development into a tropical cyclone.

  1. Many of us know that the inner core of our Earth is heating up causing volcanoes to react by spewing ash and lava on a greater scale never witnessed before by a large collective whole.

    Atmospheric changes and planetary heating up is taking place with other planets in our solar system based on NASA information released to the public. I posit the following changes happening in our solar system due to magnetism, degaussing of our Sun losing its magnetism by heating based on inner and outer pressure.

    Imagine a pressure bubble, radiating outward created by our Sun protecting Earth and our planetary system, now imagine external pressure pushing against that bubble inward. Compression takes over from a greater force outside of our solar system generating heat, decay and demagnetization (think magnetic pole wander) of our Sun and Earth.

    A simple experiment of subjecting a common magnet to high heat temperatures will cause the magnet to loose its magnetic force. Take this example and apply it on a greater scale to our solar system and you’ll begin to better understand cause and effect.

    There’s not much we can do about these external colossal changes, so enjoy the ride and make the best of each day.

    1. The middle of the earth has a dying star and its not heating up, its dying just like the sun. The inner core of the earth and the sun counter react as a strong magnetic field which shields earth. Earths magnetic field absorbs solar radiation and distributes it to the northern and southern hemispheres where theres displays of auroras.

      Solar radiation is coming to earth in two separate ways, from the sun and from the earths core. This does work as a magnetic field that can change the earths tilt and direction if theres a great change in temperature causing a great shift of weight distributing globally.
