Last week I told Paul Pukite where he was going wrong with his ENSO model:
This week, he’s ‘discovered’ that The Moon and the tides it raises underlie both The El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and the Quasi Biennial Oscillation (QBO), which he previously thought was the driver of ENSO along with the Chandler Wobble (CW), as seen in the tweets above. He hastily added ‘tides’ though they get no mention in his original post.
Today he’s even accused me of being ‘secretive’ 🙂
Long after I alerted him to this post on the relationship between Sun, Moon, and El Nino which I put up last year. In that post, I did a rough plot using Ian Wilson’s Lunar data, plus some solar data I overlaid which shows that as well as the peaks of El Nino coinciding with Lunar alignments as Ian discovered, El Nino is initiated by reversals in the TSI trend at the end of solar Max and start of solar min:
I don’t mind people taking ideas from this blog and developing them further. In fact, I encourage it. It’s a bit thick when someone does that, then claims prior art, calls you a denier, and says you’re secretive though. 🙂
Pukite has a spectrum plot of ENSO on the new post he has put up.
I think the ~0.425 year peak relates to the 19yr Metonic cycle, but I’m double checking that – update as I have time.
