About the author and this text:     (from the introduction of "The Weather Book")

James M. McCanney, M.S. received a sound classical physics training at St. Mary’s University, receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree with a double major in physics and mathematics in 1970.  He was offered full scholarship awards to three major US physics graduate schools to pursue his graduate physics studies.  However, he chose instead to postpone graduate studies for a period of three years while he traveled and taught Physics and Mathematics in Spanish in Latin America.

During this time he spent a good deal of  time traveling to ruins of ancient cities and archeological sites, studying firsthand many times as the ruins were dug from under dirt that had not been moved for thousands of years.  Also during this time he developed the basis for his theoretical work that would, at a later date, deal with the celestial mechanics of N-bodies and plasma physics. It was here also that he learned to appreciate the fact that the ruins and devastation he was witnessing had to have come from celestial events that were so devastating that they left the Earth and these stone cities in ruins, in some cases, leaving no trace of the inhabitants.

With this new understanding of archeology, astronomy of the ancients, physics and the world around him, Mr. McCanney returned to graduate school in 1973 and earned a master’s degree in nuclear and solid-state physics from Tulane University, New Orleans, LA.  He was again offered a full fellowship to continue on with Ph.D. studies, but once again he declined and returned to Latin America to study archeology and teach physics, mathematics and computer science in Spanish.  He continued his work to explore the mysteries of celestial mechanics and its relationship to the planets, moons and other celestial bodies.

In 1979 he joined the faculty of Cornell University, Ithaca N.Y. as an introductory instructor in physics.  It was during this time that he had access to NASA data returning daily from the Voyager I and II spacecraft as they traveled by the planets Jupiter, Saturn and beyond (as well as data from many other space craft).  It was here he recognized that his theoretical work regarding the electro-dynamic nature of the solar system and universe had its signatures in the new data that was streaming in from the edges of the solar system.  All standard science continued to look at gravitational explanations for the working of the planets, moons and other objects of the solar system, while Mr. McCanney was applying his electro-dynamic scientific theories, and ventured to say for the first time that comets were not dirty snowballs.  His papers were published at first in the standard astrophysical journals, but soon he began to receive resistance from the standard astronomical community and within a short period of time, the journals would no longer publish his theoretical work.  Mr. McCanney was removed from his teaching position because of his beliefs regarding the electro-dynamic nature of the solar system. 

Contrary to the traditional belief that the solar system formed all at one time 4.5 billion years ago and has not changed significantly since,  Mr. McCanney’s theoretical work essentially stated that the solar system was dynamic and adopting new members on an ongoing basis.  He pointed to the planet Venus, the Jovian moon Io, the Saturnian moon Titan and the small planet Pluto (which supports an atmosphere even though it is so distant from the warmth of the Sun and has insufficient gravity to hold an atmosphere for long)  as being obvious new members of our solar system.  He stated that all this was proof  that the way this occurred was by “planetary capture”. 

His theoretical work additionally stated that comets were not dirty snowballs, but were large electrical “vacuum cleaners” in outer space.  The comets were drawing in vast amounts of material by way of  powerful electrical forces and there was potential for very large comets capable of disrupting the planetary structure that was already in place.  His innovative theories on plasma physics and a new model for fusion in the solar atmosphere provided the basis for the electric fields and plasma discharge phenomena that have become the core elements of his theoretical models of the true nature of the solar system in which we live.

Upon being fired from the physics department for his radical beliefs, Mr. McCanney was rehired shortly thereafter by the mathematics department also at Cornell University, where he taught for another year and a half and continued to publish his papers in astrophysical journals.  Once again astronomers forced his removal and he was once again blackballed from publishing in the astrophysics journals in1981. 

During this time Mr. McCanney established himself as the originator of the theoretical work regarding the electrical nature of the cosmos for which he coined the term “THE ELECTRIC UNIVERSE”, which today is being proven correct on an ongoing basis by space-probes returning data from outer space.  Many of his predictions such as x-rays to the sunward side of  comet nuclei, that comet nuclei would be found to have no ice or water frozen on their surfaces and that comets interact electrically with the Sun to affect Earth weather,  have now been confirmed by direct measurements in 1986, 1996, 2001 and 2002 respectively.  Many other more abstract concepts have also been verified.

There exists a rare combination of factors that makes Mr. McCanney a unique person who stands alone in the development of the scientific principles and historical perspectives summarized in this book.  Some have tried to borrow and copy this work, but when observers consider the factors involved they too will agree that the extensive rewriting of standard scientific structures had to be accomplished by someone with a rare set of characteristics and circumstances.

He was always at the top of his classes in Mathematics and Physics and was always creating his own formulas and proofs.  His education was soundly based in classical and modern physics.  He was able to recognize that when the basic new aspects of the functioning of the solar system were understood and then verified in space probe data, he had the ability to extend this information and take it to all its logical conclusions.  This all occurred while working in and around the top rated scientists of the day at Cornell University who were still at least 2 decades behind what Mr. McCanney was discovering and writing. 

Another unique condition was that Cornell University offered a rare location since it was not only a Library of Congress (if it was in print it was there), but also it was a repository of data for NASA. Armed with his existing theoretical work and this incredible source of information, and with the timing that coincided with the daily arrival of new data from the Voyager and other space craft from the far reaches of the solar system, he was in a totally unique position to do what he has done. 

An essential requirement of anyone who attempts to alter the fundamental propositions of a subject as complex as astronomy and astrophysics, is an in depth knowledge of the history of that and all related sciences.  Mr. McCanney has studied the history of science extensively and understands where the theories came from that currently make up the structures of science.  He studied archaeology and geology and was in the field in remote areas to witness ancient civilizations unearthed from a previous devastation,.

He has the rare ability to speak at many levels.  He has taken a topic as complex as plasma physics and celestial mechanics (the study of rarified gasses and the motion of the celestial bodies) and simplified it in terms that the general public can understand.  That is why his university classes always grew rapidly.  He does not make an ego trip out of trying to impress his audiences with big words and unusual terms as do many university professors or the recent influx of internet hoaxsters.

There are few people who would have the tenacity to pursue and uphold their beliefs for as long as he has had to do in facing the odds pitted against him over the past decades, and to emerge in tact with as full a commitment as when he started that long ago.  His personal philosophy states that he will not accept government funding on the principle that it has corrupted the scientific process.

These numerous and individually rare characteristics make the record clear that the important contributions made here combine both personal traits and a situation of “being in the right place at the right time” as the space craft data poured into Cornell University as Mr McCanney’s theoretical ideas were solidifying.

In 1981 the Interdisciplinary Journal KRONOS agreed to publish what has since become known in inner circles as the “3 Part comet paper”, which is republished in it’s entirety at the end of the first book of this series Planet X, Comets and Earth Changes, along with other historically significant publications of Mr. McCanney. His work today includes many new significant insights into the connection between the Sun, comets, earth weather, The Sun-Earth Connection and Earth Changes.  The results of that knowledge will become obvious when you read these books.

Mr. McCanney has also remained active and well known within the space science - astronomy community and within professional societies, and although standard astronomers still resist accepting his theoretical work, he is generally well respected amongst his peers in these communities when attending professional conferences. He is what some have called “the last of the independent scientists” who were able to work “on the inside” and still remain active to talk about it on the “outside”.

In the mid-1990s Mr. McCanney’s work was recognized by a group of high-level Russian scientists who had measured but did not understand electro-dynamic effects around Earth and in the solar system.  They translated all of his papers to date into Russian. These are being taught at the university level as the leading edge of research in this field.  It is only due to the ongoing and intentional efforts of NASA that his work has received such little attention in the western scientific community and press.

It should be pointed out also that no new or bizarre fundamental laws of physics are needed to understand the electro-dynamic nature of the universe.  This entire textbook is based on standard physics and simply introduces the principles of the working of our solar system based on a new understanding of how the Sun produces fusion and therefore electric fields (and magnetic fields) in the solar system. Once these fundamental principles are put in place, the rest is simply the logical conclusion of standard laws of physics being applied to the situation. 

It is very interesting to note that historical records of the major disasters witnessed by the ancients are now understood in light of this new understanding of how our solar system works.  A scientific basis and the “theoretical key” has now been introduced to give fundamental understanding of the Biblical references regarding the End Days, The accounts of the Exodus from the Legends of the Jews, the Mayan accounts of Quetzalcoatl (the plumed serpent god of the night sky whose heart became the planet Venus), the accounts of the Egyptian mythological planet Nibiru, the accounts and historical records and writings of the destruction of Atlantis as well as the writings of such world renowned authors as Casey, Sitchin, Velikovsky, Blavatsky, Donnelly and others who could see beyond the standard and incorrect explanations of where we came from and the true history of man and our planet.

This book is a summary of information that spans over 25 years of serious research and is needed on the international market to inform the public of  the true nature of our past relative to celestial events, and additionally, of the dangers that stand before us as we deal with the possibility of new planetary members being adopted into the solar system. 

The books in this series do not make any specific predictions of dates on the arrival of a new celestial object nor does it make any predictions or analysis regarding any particular planetary object(s) that might come into the solar system.  Additionally, regarding the historical events, these books do not state definitive dates for past events … but only indicate the most plausible dating based on current information.  Dating of events is a difficult area of study and many times taken too lightly by people who have done insufficient study to know what they are really talking about.  The study of ancient calendars, for example, is probably one of the most complicated areas of study known to man.

The current text is the fourth in a series of books.  The first book Planet X, Comets and Earth Changes  defines the science behind the true electrical workings of the solar system and relates it to historical studies and modern space probe data.  It is a treatise written for the layman on the 25 years of  Mr. McCanney’s theoretical work.  It is essential that the reader understand at minimum the basic contents of that book to put the current book into perspective.  The reader will not understand the current book and the science of the ancients without having a basic understanding of the true electrical nature of the workings of the solar system.

The second book of the series Surviving Planet X Passage (a 60 page pamphlet), although not essential, covers an aspect of history that the avid reader may well wish to understand.  This is the re-calendaring of our celestial clock after the Earth’s orbital elements have been affected by a close encounter with a near passage of a massive celestial object as we know has happened in the past.  This book outlines what the ancients performed to rebuild their calendars for survival so they would know the correct planting seasons.

The third book Atlantis to Tesla – The Kolbrin Connection takes the reader’s knowledge to a new level and for the first time, defines for the general public the Physics of the ancient advanced cultures such as Atlantis.  It links the past with the present, giving also a glimpse of the direction we must take to assure our species a place amongst the stars. 

The current book Principia Meteorologia - The Physics of Sun Earth Weather is the culmination of Mr. McCanney’s lifelong work which now details the effects of electrical conditions in the solar system on space weather and ultimately the weather systems of Earth. At present there are two more books destined to become part of this series that will be released at later dates.
