In Hawaii, Kilauea has been erupting steadily for 31 years. But a newly formed Kilauea vent opened on June 27, 2014. Lava flowing from the vent is said to be extremely hot – 2,100 degrees Fahrenheit. 
On November 15, 2014, a volcano in the Alaska Peninsula launched an ash plume 30,000 feet into the air. The “anthropogenic discharges” of carbon dioxide and such is negligible compared with the amounts of natural flows (carbon dioxide, water vapor, and dust) from the ocean and land to the atmosphere via such things as volcanoes and the sea. The Mt. Pavlof, Alaska volcanic eruption is one such example of “natural flows”, in contrast with the relatively negligible “anthropogenic discharges”.

In Wyoming, the “Old Faithful” geyser erupts every 91 minutes. Between 1983 and 1994, four probes containing temperature and pressure measurement devices and video equipment were lowered into Old Faithful. The probes were lowered as deep as 72 feet. Temperature measurements of the water at this depth was 244 °F. 
All this suggests heat originating in the Earth’s interior and having nothing to do with the Sun. It is telluric heat – heat from the Earth’s interior.
How cold is outer space? “If you could travel from world to world, from star to star, out into the gulfs of intergalactic space, you’d move away from the warmth of the stars into the vast and cold depths of the void.” 
The Earth is surrounded by a canopy of cold. Descending or ascending canopy of cold columns produce the changes in our seasons. The colder air displaces the warmer air and does not mix with it. Electrical disturbances in the upper atmosphere cause the canopy of cold to either descend or ascend, depending upon whether the charge is positive or negative. It is surplus telluric heat – heat from the Earth’s interior – which forces upwards the canopy of cold. (Background: Canopy Of Cold Descends, Ersjdamoo’s Blog, November 20, 2014.)
It is a misapprehension that Albert Einstein abolished the Ether. Einstein did not “abolish” the Ether. “The theory of relativity,” wrote Isaac Asimov, “does not flatly state that an ether does not exist. It does, however, remove the need for one, and if it is not needed, why bother with it?”  Furthermore, Albert Einstein was not consistent throughout his life as to his opinion of the Ether: At first, Einstein accepted it. Later, the Nobel Prize-winning physicist abandoned the Ether during the years 1905-1916. But then, between 1916 and 1924, Einstein introduced a concept of the “new ether.” 
Other objections to the existence of the Ether, a medium which fills all space, including space already occupied (such as by planets), have been previously deconstructed in the Ersjdamoo’s Blog 46-part series, “Our Friend, The Ether”, published from October 2013 through December 2013.
Because “nature abhors a vacuum”, the space through which light travels from the Sun to the Earth must be filled with something. Light traveling at marvelous speed through this “something” produces friction, which in turn produces electricity.  The “something” through which the light travels is, in other words, the Ether.
Telluric heat – heat from the Earth – comes in contact with the cold of outer space. Mediating the dispute are electrical disturbances in the upper atmosphere. A canopy of cold either descends or ascends, depending upon whether the charge is positive or negative. Positive electricity produces the warm seasons; negative electricity produces the cold seasons. Decreases in Total Solar Irradiance (TSI) beginning in the 1990s, as well as Solar Cycle 24, which began January 4, 2008 and is on track to be the Solar Cycle with the lowest recorded sunspot activity since accurate records began in 1750, mean the mediating electrical disturbances in the upper atmosphere are more negatively charged. Curséd, damnable cold is expected.
