Pity we can’t see further back than May 2012:

Date    time    mag    place    latitude    longitude

2012-04-11    08:38    8.6    off the west coast of northern Sumatra    2.327    93.063

But the time will come. Plenty of time then, to discover how this thing works:

(One hopes.)

I posted or attempted to post an idea that gyroscopic forces are what have erroneously been attributed to the Coriolis farce. I supposed that the super-quake in Alaska 50 years ago was caused by an anticyclone running counter to the normal (cyclonic course of weather in the Bay of Alaska) throwing out the gyro.

If you look at this chart:

http://mkwc.ifa.hawaii.edu/requests/sequences/86.15.227.105-1394740931.22478.tar

You can see that something of the sort does happen occasionally in one of the most dramatically affected regions of the planet. The Lows of the Bay (Aleutian Lows) are especially dramatic in themselves.

Much more so that ours unless I have been reading the charts the wrong way around. I was trying to post this stuff to Usenet but Google as per googual is making it it more and more Uselessnet. The story to the post is that the cyclone is at home in the Bay of Alaska. When the Low moves from its home or runs counter to the normal flow the weather earth-wide is also disturbed.

But when the Low (a Cyclone) is replaced by an Anticyclone or “High”, then the whole world is in tumult. There is a scripture to cover this very experience. But I am damned if I can remember where it is. It’s about the storehouses of hail prepared for warfare.

Got it: Job chapter 38.
