This year is shaping to be one of the biggest in terms of global warming.
That’s because a new “Golden Week” is about to kick off the first quarter of the new year.
On March 21, 2018, the Earth’s magnetic field will be strong enough to push Earth’s atmosphere upward by up to 3 feet.
The phenomenon, known as coronal mass ejection (CME), is caused by a small amount of solar wind hitting the Earth, causing it to spiral outward.
Scientists have long theorized that the Earth could have a chance of avoiding the impact by spinning into a ball of magnetic energy and sending it away from the Earth.
But there is a catch.
The Earth’s surface is very unstable, so the shockwave from the CME could eventually travel outward, pushing the atmosphere upward.
In the next few weeks, the magnetic field could be stronger than before, and Earth’s rotation could become slower.
It’s possible that Earth could spin faster this time around, which could trigger a new CME event.
Scientists at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, have studied the effects of CME on the magnetic fields in recent years.
They found that the new “Goldilocks” zone of Earth’s temperature would be very similar to what was seen during the early 2000s.
But in this new “goldilocks,” the Earth should not experience any significant change in temperature during this time, said Paul Johnson, a geophysicist at JPL.
Scientists expect that a lot of this “golden week” could be attributed to the solar activity.
But scientists also think that it’s possible Earth could experience a big change in its magnetic field during the next three weeks, as well.
The scientists expect that this period could also be the “gold-time” for Earth, since that’s when the sunspot cycle starts.
If this happens, Earth could enter a period of extreme solar activity and a solar storm, which might lead to an increase in CO2 levels in the atmosphere.
The amount of CO2 released by the sun in a solar flare is very dependent on how much energy the flare produces.
For example, a very large flare could release a lot more energy than a small one, but it would only release a small fraction of the amount of energy from a small flare.
The increase in the amount and duration of a solar eruption would affect the Earth in a variety of ways, Johnson said.
The CO2 from the flare could increase the surface temperature of the Earth by as much as 2 degrees Celsius, or by a full 1 degree Celsius.
The researchers predict that this “Golden week” will likely last for at least the next two months.
The last time that Earth experienced a Golden Week was in 1997, and the last time it happened in this manner was during the CPP cycle in the 1970s.
Johnson said that he’s excited about the potential of this year’s Golden Week to be a record-breaker.
But even if the “Golden” week does not end with a record temperature, there is plenty of time for Earth to start to experience some major changes.
The next major solar outburst will happen in 2019, which would be a sign that the sun is beginning to make changes to its behavior, Johnson added.
“It’s definitely possible that the next solar eruption could be a big one,” he said.
This is a developing story.
