Svensmark - an exoneration?

http://hockeyschtick.blogspot.com/2010/08/paper-cosmoclimatology-is-real.html is a report on a paper in the Journal of Geophysical Research 142 (2010) which comes out in support of Henrik Svenmark's hypothesis. The Passive Atmospheric Sounding instrument onboard Enviset (MIPAS-E) from July 2002 to March 2004 were used to investigate a possible link between galactic cosmic rays and mid altitude to high altitude clouds.

Sea Levels and Sprott

At the same web address and the same piece Sprott says the barycentric orbit affecting the weather also effects sea levels. It is illogical to ascribe a rise in sea levels as being due to an increased volume of water, he siad. The level of the world's oceans are affected by the location of the barycentre - and this alters due to planetary influences. Hnece, the rise and fall of sea levels has an oscillation tuned into the solar system = the wave theory.

A Sprott on the Landscape

At www.scoop.co.nz/stories/print.html?path=SC0811/S00028.htm ... a press release from the New Zealand Climate Science Coalition on November 11th 2008 can be found at this web address, with the title, How Barycentric Orbits Influence Climate and was made by Dr Jim Sprott, OBE, MSc., PhD., FNZIC, a chemist and forensic scientist in Auckland. He warned the new minister for Climate Change (an AGW advocate) that projections by the IPCC are simplistic, superficial, and wrong etc etc.

The Sun is waking up

The Sun is waking up according to NASA - see www.physorg.com/print199985777.html which  has an image of a filament of plasma blasted from the surface (plus access to a video clip)

Icy Centaurs

Are icy centaurs between the orbits of Jupiter and Neptune a threat to the earth? is the headline of a piece by Casey Kazan at www.dailygalaxy.com August 2nd ... He says the greatest threat to earth comes from comets and NASA has found it difficult to keep a track on these objects. Most comets are on orbits that enter the inner solar system at intervals of two to three hundred years.

Geoglyphs from the Atacama Desert in Chile

At http://archaeology.about.com/od/artandarchitecture/a/atacama_glyph.htm there is a post on geoglyphs from the Atacama Desert in Chile, and how they were made. Geometric shapes are common, such as circles, concentric circles, circles with dots, rectangles, crosses, arrows, parallel lines, rhomboids, all of the symbols are also common in pre Hispanic ceramics and textile design.

Current World Archaeology

Current World Archaeology 42 (August 2010) has some information that might be interesting (see the web site www.archaeology.co.uk ) such as the arrival of modern humans in North Africa is being now dated to 80,000 years ago. We also learn that the once huge fruit and nut forest in central Asia is rapidly disappearing as a result of fires, logging, and population pressure.

A Negritoe Migration?

Negritoes are a very obvious minority population element in various parts of SE Asia and the Pacific, and once lived in India (and still inhabit the Andaman Islands) and various other places enroute (even in the Malayan peninsular), and it could be argued they represent a well defined migration, an Out of Africa movement that has some reality. At www.gmanews.tv/print/197541/ a footbone has been found in a cave in the Philippines that has been dated as early as 67,000 years  ago.

The Jared Diamond Myth in tatters

Manchester University (at www.manchester.ac.uk/aboutus/news/display/?id=5997 ) it seems is about to publish new research set to overthrow the 'environmentalist propaganda' disseminated by Jared Diamond in his book a few years ago, much loved by eco-campaigners and politicians as an example of how to rubbish your own backyard.
