By Brian K. Sullivan (Bloomberg) — A weakening Hurricane Joaquin probably won’t be a threat to the U.S. as it turns north in the Atlantic away from the Bahamas, where it’s battering the islands with winds that fell to 125 miles (200 kilometers) per hour.

Florida-Gulf Coast is the program everyone recognizes in the Atlantic Sun, but another school from the Sunshine State has taken control of the league.
Definitely an iceberg (Photo: Rita Willaert/Wikimedia) When the International Ice Patrol first started searching the North Atlantic for icebergs, after the Titanic sunk in 1912, a ship would make its way into the middle of the ocean, find the southernmost iceberg and babysit it for the rest of the season.

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach Anthony recently highlighted a new study which purports to find that the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) is synchronized to the fluctuations in solar activity. The study is entitled “Solar forcing synchronizes decadal North Atlantic climate variability”. Show More Summary
The natural, 11-year cycle of solar activity is apparently influencing long-term climate fluctuations in the Northern Hemisphere. An international team of scientists has shown that the so-called North Atlantic Oscillation, one of the dominant circulation patterns on the Northern Hemisphere, is phased-locked to the decadal solar activity with a delay of one or two years.
