I was trained as an engineer and then did a degree in the History and philosophy of science.

I know how to calculate forces, I understand thermodynamics and radiative theory and I don’t ignore data inimical to any hypothesis.

After thirty years of monitoring and appraising the data, the global warming hypothesis and working out what really causes climatic change I’ve concluded that it ain’t CO2. The real causes of climatic change at the planetary scale are the enormous forces transferring energy between solar system bodies.

Jupiter and Saturn between them hold over 85% of the angular momentum of the system. Venus has, within an order of magnitude, the same gravitational force on the Earth-Moon system as Jupiter. The two of them have shaped the orbit of our Moon, whose tidal forces have a profound effect on the overturning circulation of Earth’s oceans, which contain 1000 times more heat than…

History: Original Intent and the 14th Amendment (Birthright Citizenship)

The Bottom Line


Over two years ago, I attended an anti New York City Mosque rally. While at this event, I ran into a couple of young liberal men who had come to argue with their ideological adversaries. In conversation with them, one brought up the 14th amendment, which even though I knew what it was, off the top of my head I couldn’t remember. When I asked for clarification on what the Amendment was about he said in a very sarcastic, half laughing manner “You don’t know what the 14th Amendment is?” So not totally remembering everything about it, I went back and researched the amendment for myself, and what I found was interesting.

Section one of the 14th Amendment of the United States constitution states:

“All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein…

NASA reports massive hole in Sun’s atmosphere

Watts Up With That?

Huge hole over 400,000 miles long (700,000 kilometers) is 55 times wider than the Earth

A wide hole in the sun’s atmosphere is facing Earth and spewing a stream of solar wind toward our planet. Estimated time of arrival: April 9th. In this extreme ultraviolet image from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, we see not only the hole, but also a bushy filament of magnetic bordering the hole’s leading edge:

Such filaments are often unstable. If this one erupts while it is facing Earth, it could hurl a CME in our direction, adding to the effect of the incoming solar wind.

The canyon-shaped hole is remarkably wide, stretching more than 700,000 km from end to end. As a result, Earth could be under the influence of its gaseous emissions for days.
