HUH HUH?????

Are you suggesting that they (the electromagnetic waves) are no longer 
linearly polarized (no longer vertical or horizontal) but now have a 
circular or elliptical polarization maybe lefthand circular or righthand 
circular etc?  Please discuss this further I am interested in the wave that 
has no electric field orientation referenced to this planet.
