The 'Theory of Relational Cycles of Solar Activity' or 'Relational Cycle Theory' or simply the ‘RC Theory’ was developed during the spring of 2007. It was the culmination of independent research by John L. Casey, President of the Space and Science Research Corporation. Following his independent research, he performed an extensive review of other published scientific literature to corroborate his findings and evaluate the accuracy of his work. As a result, it was found that most if not all of the elements of the Theory were also established by other researchers, providing significant validation for the Theory and its importance as a tool for prediction of future climate changes. His peer reviewed climate research paper available below, though the only one by Mr. Casey, has led to the foundational RC Theory and a track record of major climate predictions since 2007, that is one of the best. His independently validated record and that of the SSRC far exceeds for example, the accuracy of predictions found in the US government's climate reports for the current administration as well as those of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (UN-IPCC). His series of correct major climate predictions, led him to being named "America's best climate prediction expert," by at least one source in 2013. As a result of the last seven years of effort, along with other research and climate predictions announced via numerous press releases, Mr. Casey has created an international following of supporters among both scientists and non-scientists.


                                    ****   The Theory of Relational Cycles of Solar Activity ****

                                                                            (The RC Theory)  


                             (1) There exists a family of solar activity cycles that has a profound and direct influence
                                   on the Earth’s climate.   
                             (2) These cycles are called ‘relational cycles’ since their effects can be experienced or
                                  ‘related’ to during one or two human lifetimes.  

                             (3) There is a “Centennial Cycle” of 90-100 years duration, which manifests itself with

                                   solar activity minimums and associated low temperatures with episodes lasting a few

                                   years to 1-2 decades.

                             (4) There is a “Bi-Centennial Cycle” of about 206 years that is the most powerful of the

                                   relational cycles and has significant effects on the climate of the Earth lasting

                                   many decades resulting in the most extreme variations in solar activity and temperatures.

                             (5) These cycles are correlated strongly to all past major temperature lows.

                             (6) There is remarkable regularity and hence the predictability of these oscillations, such that

                                   the theory may be a powerful tool in forecasting of major temperature and climatic cycles

                                   on Earth, many decades in advance.  

                             (7) There may be other relational cycles of shorter duration accounting for lesser solar  
climatic events which may be revealed in subsequent research.
