New Concepts in Global Tectonics journal (of September 2018, volume 6, number 3). See http://ievpc.org/ncgt-journal.html and http://ievpc.org/journals.html... and straightaway we learn the editor is dead. Dr Dong Choi suffered heart failure and Louis Hissink has replaced him. He begins, editorial policy will remain the same, as before ... etc. The journal will continue its policy of political incorrect news, since all scientific theories are provisional and subject to change when new data or observation occurs, rednering the previous scientific explanation obsolete.

Cranial modification

At http://www.godkingscenario.com/blog/did-the-bizarre-practice-of-artifici... ... did the bizarre practice of cranial deformation derive from observations of an elongated celestial body. Artificial cranial modification, head flattening and head binding, leads to some peculiar shapes of the skull ...

Emerald Comet

The comet that was supposed to make a show in November and December has taken a back seat, possibly forgotten as a new comet on the blocks is showing off in the sky right now, Comet Wirtanen. It is situated just below the orbit of the Earth but it is set to make a spectacular entrance in the next few weeks. Go to http://spaceweather.com (29th November 2018). It is hyperactive at the moment, in a way that belies its actual small size. ...

Meteor Blast over Sodom

At https://www.timesofisrael.com/evidence-of-sodom-meteor-blast-cause-of-bi... .. this is the expected paper promised by SIS member Phil Silvia - just read out at a conference (and already making waves). The Biblical tale of Sodom has intrigued people for generations. Silvia and Collins enlisted some members of the Younger Dryas boundary event team including our friend George Howard of https://cosmictusk.com/tall_el_hammam_sodom_trinity_university_jordan_si... ...

Magnetotail Explosions

Robert also sent in this link to the discovery of explosions in Earth's magnetic tail - buffetted by a stream of solar wind (but see earlier post at https://sis-group.org.uk/news/musical-wave.htm ). Go to www.gizmodo.co.uk/2018/11/spacecraft-witness-explosion-in-earths-magneti... ... which is derived from https://arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/1809/1809.06932.pdf ... and the claim is that this is evidence of magnetic reconnection events. Robert says that what is really happening is that double layers are accelerating electrons (electron jets) etc.

Water and Plates

Robert sent in this link to www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-6407781/Earth-swallowing-TRILLIO... ... which is derived from an article at https://nature.com/articles/s41586-018-0655-4 ... which according to Robert has it the wrong way around. It is not the earth swallowing water but the earth disgorging water (or that is what another study claimed a couple of weeks ago, posted here on In the News).

Levallois Flake Technology

At https://phys.org/print461827831.html ... scientists from Australia and China and the US have published a study in the journal Nature (19th November 2018) which purports to show humans with the ability to make stone tools in the Levallois fashion go back to 170,000 years (at least) in East Asia. This is of course contrary to the Out of Africa theory where Levallois technology only reached that part of the world around 50,000 years ago. Is this another nail in the coffin of the multi culti propaganda masquerading as serious science?

Wood Pellets

This is one of those things where you just have to wonder where they are coming from - and quite how their brains work. It seems the Green Blob have been embarrassed about the amount of co2 involved in bulk carriers bringing wood pellets from Carolina to power stations such as Drax in Yorkshire - and are aimlessly swinging their arms (and their mouths) in several different directions. Earlier in the week there was a report that people were seriously trying to make the bulk carriers (and all shipping) less co2 dependent, even to the really weird idea of bringing back sails.

Asteroid Strike

This time the asteroid strike was on a moon of Mars, Phobus - see https://phys.org/print461938210.html ... a new study claims stranges goings on Mars moon Phobus were made by rolling boulders. It is the origin of the boulders that is intersesting from a catastrophist angle and the theory is that they were formed in the wake of an asteroid strike. The research was published in Planetary and Space Science (November 2018). The grooves are a distinct feature of Phobus ...

Musical Wave

At http://spaceweather.com 23rd November 2018 ... musical waves in Earth's magnetic field (see also https://wattsupwiththat.com/2018/11/23/our-quiet-sun-produces-musical-wa...) ...  our quiet Sun produces musical waves in Earth's magnetic field. A space weather observatory in Norway (above the Arctic Circle) has this week detected sine waves of exceptional purity rippling through Earth's polar magnetic field. For some reason the comments at the second link are not exactly impressed - but you can't please everyone.
