All the forecasts for cycle 25 are still just forecasts.
"Cold" via clouding is a cosmic ray relationship.
A GSM isn't the only way to boost their input to Earth.
The weakening magnetosphere coupled with reduced solar magnetic output has put us in a condition much like a full-blown GSM already.
In the last year or so, it's become more about magnetosphere strength.
And...in the background, there's still Rolf Witszche's contention that the Sun is in worse shape than a descent into a GSM.
There's only one direction from here.

The Sun is coming down with a corona virus. HA HA

So are you going to start doing the comedy club tour pretty soon:-}

He's having a hard time making any of it funny.
He's usually pretty good at it with other serious subjects.

Millions to get hit by record-breaking cold, major snow, and ice storms as the Polar Vortex lobe heads south across the United States this weekend

Snowfall totals to the 18th, hr. 120 on a 366 hr. loop from today's 2PM est run.
pivotalweather.com



These frigid cold temperatures are gradually spreading further south this weekend and are forecast to reach the Gulf Coast on Sunday. This has already been a historic cold for many areas and even more low and high daily temperatures will be challenged and easily broken from Sunday through Tuesday.

I brought up geomagnetic jerks over two years ago 1177. There was evidence that they were coming at an accelerated pace and tied to the geomagnetic reversal. There was also evidence that one had occurred just prior to then.
There's also evidence that they're one cause of rotational "glitches". Millisecond speed-ups in Earths rotation.

At the core/mantle boundary there is a somewhat delicate matrix binding the two. If it were not for this, the weight of the polar ice caps, which is unbalanced with the Earth's angle of rotation, would provide the momentum necessary to slide the solid mantle over the liquid core to bring that mass unbalance into equilibrium.

There's a glitch in the matrix:

As the polarity of our intragalactic environment continues toward reversal.

On another front:

"...develop nonanthropocentric and nonbinary posthumanities that can survive and thrive despite their loss of the concept of human nature that has historically served as the anchorof the humanities."

Chapter Thirteen is a revised and expanded version of Gladden, Matthew E.,
“The Artificial Life-Form as Entrepreneur: Synthetic Organism-Enterprises and the Re-conceptualization of Business,”
published in Proceedings of the Fourteenth International Conference on the Synthesis and Simulation of Living Systems

From:
The Diffuse Intelligent Other: An Ontology of Nonlocalizable Robots as Moral and Legal Actors

academia.edu
[ed: But....isn't this pretty much what the HFT programs are doing in the markets already?]

"Much thought has been given to the question of who bears moral and legal responsibility for actions performed by robots. Some argue that responsibility could be attributed to a robot if it possessed human-like autonomy and metavolitionality, and that while such capacities can potentially be possessed by a robot with a single spatially compact body, they cannot be possessed by a spatially disjunct, decentralized collective such as a robotic swarm or network. However, advances in ubiquitous robotics and distributed computing open the door to a new form of robotic entity that possesses a unitary intelligence, despite the fact that its cognitive processes are not confined within a single spatially compact, persistent, identifiable body. Such a “nonlocalizable” robot may possess a body whose myriad components interact with one another at a distance and which is continuously transforming as components join and leave the body. Here we develop an ontology for classifying such robots on the basis of their autonomy, volitionality, and localizability. Using this ontology, we explore the extent to which nonlocalizable robots—including those possessing cognitive abilities that match or exceed those of human beings—can be considered moral and legal actors that are responsible for their own actions."

It gets worse...much worse...

From page 69 - Human nature and the posthumanities. ----

"Herbrechter notes that simply because critical posthumanism considers ‘human nature’ to be a cultural artifact, it is not obligated to claim that human nature is unworthy of study.
Indeed, the critical posthumanities will be well-positioned to investigate human nature in a way that expands the scope of such a ‘nature’ in a deanthropocentrizing manner.72

With its insights into the history, structure, and practices of various spheres of culture, cultural posthumanism can play a role in taking the critical methodologies developed within critical posthumanism and applying them across the current range of the humanities to develop nonanthropocentric and nonbinary posthumanities that can survive and thrive despite their loss of the concept of human nature that has historically served as the anchor
of the humanities."73

It's just about everywhere in the northern hemisphere. East Asia's getting a break.

February's been a real humdinger so far.
A few events from the past week.
Permanent infrastructure loss appears to be starting with an increasing caliber of GSM/pole shift drive-bys.
