Earth should be worried about the rapid solar acceleration

Speed-research students at Loughborough University have warned how the effects of the sun’s electromagnetic radiation could reach humans far earlier than previously imagined.

A team say nature can adapt to just how fast something is moving on Earth with surprising accuracy.

The research was commissioned by the On Settle Windfarm, near Unthanks, in Lourdes.

The researchers – who warn the solar radiation does not appear to accelerate as fast as people have long thought – say we need to rethink our assumptions about how fast Omicron does accelerate.

“We really have underestimated the accelerated speed of the solar radiation,” said student Stefanke Meijer, who carried out the experiment on the wind farm premises.

“To the extent that the speed of the sun is accelerating, for humans it’s much faster than it looks,” he added.

Their model found that as Omicron spins around the sun it causes eruptions of solar wind that reach Earth much sooner than we thought.

Now, the warning about the potential impact of Omicron has been raised further. Another group from Imperial College London has published research into the spectra of Hyrdoastron – the particle produced by Omicron accelerating our atmosphere.

Scientists say we should not worry about Omicron speed and should be concerned about its effect on climate.

“The main concern would be a side effect of the sun, which is to disrupt the upper atmosphere of the Earth,” said Robert Fiedler, who led the research group at Imperial College London.

“That’s something that’s happened before, and the evidence for that is not compelling.”

The group points out that Omicron’s acceleration of the atmosphere has a powerful effect on the whole climate system.

This could work to shift the upper atmosphere towards more solar radiation, cooling the planet, and the effect could be intensified if other particles found in the atmosphere become unstable, such as the ozone layer.

On Settle Windfarm is a wind farm being built in the Fylde, near Unthanks, in Lancashire. The researchers drew on experiences from On Settle.

The farm employs many students from Loughborough and Imperial College London to help construct the project. It was funded by the European Energy Community, a joint European Union/UK project.

The On Settle Windfarm project, said Eco Renewables’ Ben White: “We hope it will showcase this exciting new research and highlight how these students working on the eco wind farm are changing the field with their life’s work.”
