There are four major earthquake 'swarms' currently active running from Alaska to Mexico and these could be related to plate shifts in the Cascadia Subduction Zone, he noted. Ancient texts suggest certain patterns to earth changes, a kind of "science of cycles," said Battros, who believes the Mayans were attuned to such cycles.
He noted that Solar Cycle 24 will be reaching its apex around the start of 2012. Solar changes and geomagnetic storms have an affect on the magnetic field around us, he pointed out. An increase of charged particles can affect people's psychological being, in both positive and negative ways, he added.
Solar Rain is an account of how solar activity, such as sunspots, solar flares and coronal mass ejections affects Earth’s weather. It details the mechanics of how the Sun works, and the physics of interplanetary space, plus the specific impacts on our planet’s atmosphere and magnetosphere. The book analyzes weather patterns and whether they are getting more intense and/or more frequent.
It also discusses the El Niño phenomenon and how it affects our weather, and how solar activity triggers and/or enhances hurricanes, tornadoes, straight-line winds, microbursts, and other effects. Although the book contains hundreds of maps, charts, graphs, diagrams and photos, plus the achievements of dozens of experts in their field, one chapter leaves the scientific world, and enters the realm of ancient prophecy, specifically looking at Mayan and Hopi legends of the origins of our world and its ultimate destiny.
Solar Rain presents arguments against the so-called “Greenhouse Effect,” which claims that human activity is responsible for any increase in the average temperature of the globe, and points the finger firmly at the Sun as the principal driver of any global warming. It points out that the Sun undergoes many cycles of intensity, ranging from 11 years to 100,000 years, and that it is how these cycles combine that drives our weather and global temperatures.
