    Wow. Surreal. Colors are amazing. Katja’s is really impressive.

      He/she seems to have had the good fortune to be right under it, although I though the magnetic pole was somewhere in Canada.

    Paul Cyr’s photo is, without question, the most intense and beautiful aurora borealis picture I’ve ever seen! Most aurora pictures are primarily yellow-green but this is incredible – the depth, the color range, and intensity. Just like some rainbow photos are better than others, this one blows every other aurora picture away! Two thumbs up!

    Very Beautiful indeed.

    Sorry to change the subject but this is such an interesting link that I wanted to share.

    Yet another negative feedback for global warming from CO2 that does not get factored into the IPCC models. This species alone alone is probably not of scale to make a large impact, but the potential for adaptation is not considered. People forget we were living in a CO2-starved setting during the modern ICE AGE relative to most of Earth history.

      “The mismatch between scientific and public opinion complicates a plan by almost 200 governments to work out a deal to limit global warming at a summit in late 2015 in Paris.”
      I don’t know, but I’ve read that a majority of scientists in the environmental movement are not physical, but political scientists. And certainly the UN is a political (in the worst sense of the word) organization. This story seems an extension of the all too familiar one of governmental power grab.

  4. Right here is the perfect blog for anybody who
    wishes to understand this topic. You realize so much its almost hard to
    argue with you (not that I actually will need to_HaHa).

    You certainly put a new spin on a topic that has been written about for many years.
    Wonderful stuff, just great!

    email clients, and social media followers.

  6. Is a very impersonal solution to reach people, and many of these might delete
    this content before reading it. If you possess something to talk about, create a position update
    about any of it. People are more likely to learn them.

  7. It is not my first time to pay a visit this website, i am browsing this web
    site dailly and obtain fastidious data from here
    all the time.
