Rhodes Fairbridge and Sun Spot Minima and Maxima

At www.mitosyfraudes.org/Calen2/Rhodes.html ... we have an interesting article by the redoubtable Rhodes Fairbridge, written when he was about 80 years of age. It was published in '21st Century Science and Technology' magazine and impacts directly on terrestrial climate and the current craze of some people to warn that we are descending into a Little Ice Age as sun spots seem to be in decline.

Some Greenland Anomalies

At http://malagabay.wordpress.com/2014/04/greenland-raised-beaches/ ... Tim Cullen raises some anomalies on Greenland and as always is thought provoking and perplexing at the same time. In this post it is raised beaches - and the official consensus explanation for these oddities of geology. He begins by quoting an old edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica (the one with all the paper volumes and the stiff covers that were sold by door to door salesmen). This reaches the conclusion the whole of Greenland has been raised out of the sea - or sea levels have declined - in post glacial times.

Official - it's a belief system!

Like most of the population In the News has got a bit bored with Climate Change. Most everybody now realises it is all a load of codswallop and is really all about making some people rich at the expense of the less well off. However, for anyone with the stomach for this subject go to www.thegwpf.org/nigel-lawson-the-bath-lecture/ ... where he makes a strong case that CAGW is indeed a belief system and has nothing whatsoever to do with science.

Ice Ages ... some explanations aired

A day or so ago there was a post on Ice Age Greenland - and the possibility it was really a succession of Little Ice Ages and amounted to no more than a succession of increased episodes of sea ice in the N Atlantic (around southern Greenland and Icelandic waters).

Caribou hunting in the early Holocene

Archaeologists have finally cracked what all those stones were for submerged beneath Lake Huron. At www.sciencenews.org/blog/science-ticker/lake-huron-holds-9000-year-old-h... ... a reference to stones laid out in a linear fashion that were found a couple of years ago underneath the waters of Lake Huron. Caribou and other game was driven into a centralised 'killing zone' according to an article in PNAS April 28th 2014

Volcanoes and Ice Cores

Mike Baillie has moved from an extraterrestrial event to a volcano in order to account for the AD540 low growth tree ring event - claiming it is a better fit with the data as it currently stands. The shift arises from his belief that there was a 7 year discrepancy between tree rings and ice cores - and he hopes to resolve this issue with the new paper - a fuller version of last year's AGM talk at Wigmore Church Hall in Luton.

Electrictity and Flourescence and the Moon

At http://malagabay.wordpress.com/2014/04/26/protecting-lunar-archaeology/ ... Tim Cullen wonders what, if anything, NASA isn't saying about its LADDE mission - which was recently terminated by crashing it on the far side of the Moon. What is the reality of electricity and flourescence on the Moon?

The Moon may have at atmosphere consisting of small particles constantly leaping up and down from and falling back to the surface, excited by the solar wind, an atmosphere of dust particles in constant motion.

Spy satellites and archaeology

At http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2014/04/140425-corona-spy-satell... ... US spy satellites data from the Cold War period has been released and it displays images that can be used by archaeologists as it shows up clear as daylight numerous ancient settlements (citeis, towns, villages) in fine detail, some of which were unknown to scholars. In this instance, it the Near and Middle East (modern Turkey, Syria, and Iraq) that is of interest - many of the sites are now stranded in the desert and far away from human habitation. Other sites are big, really big.
