Hawking Venusian Nonsense

British Professor Stephen Hawking wrote a letter to President Trump criticising America’s pull out from the Paris Climate Change Agreement, arguing that this

could be the “tipping point” which wipes out humanity and turns our planet into a living hell. Source

Hawking believes the Earth will end up like Venus, a literal planetary hell-hole if we continue to emit the greenhouse gas CO2 into the atmosphere.

Of course no one has observed Venus turning into a thermal hell-hole but our ancestors did, apparently, witness its birth as an ejection from Jupiter, and that humanity feared it because of its cometary-like characteristics.  It was Immanuel Velikovsky who first proposed that Venus would be hot because it was a recently formed planet. This was put forward in his controversial book Worlds in Collision and published in 1950. It was met with a hostile reception by the scientific world and during the 1970’s Carl Sagan used the fabrication of a runaway greenhouse process to explain the Venusian temperature.  The American scientist Jim Hansen was a PhD student under Sagan’s supervision and his thesis was the Venusian atmosphere.

It was this unproven assertion by Sagan, later admitted to be thermodynamically impossible, that fueled the present global warming and climate change meme and Hawking, living in his mathematical fantasy, is simply continuing the tradition of fake science.

We are not dealing with science but religion – since global warming hasn’t occurred yet in order for a theory to be framed to explain it. It’s all prophesy and no observation, and Hawking will most likely be remembered as another prophet to join Isiah, Ezekiel and all the rest of the various religious doomsayers over the course of history.

The problem with the religious is that they have retreated into their own imaginary world that is divorced from physical reality.  It is the outcome of too much thinking about things that only exist in their minds and like zombies, they will react from cognitive dissonance when  the rest of us prefer not to join them on their journey to la la land utopia.

All Hawking has done is extrapolated the past, his memories, into the future. What he and his fellow CO2 illusionists seem unable to work out is that humanity has survived quite a few climate catastrophes, according to what historical evidence there is, since the Bronze Ages, and their intellectual retreat into the vast cave that is their minds have resulted them ending up lost and forever wandering around in their personal la la lands, escaping the memories of the past (real) by constant thinking and repeating magical mantras and incantations to ward off the ever present fear they refuse to confront.

And like lemmings they will eventually run off the cliff and for those of us who remain in the rational world, the trick then is not to be swept up with them in the mad mob behaviour.

About Louis Hissink

Retired diamond exploration geologist. I spent my professional life looking for mineral deposits, found some, and also located a number of kimberlites in NSW and Western Australia. Exploration geology is the closest one can get to practicing the scientific method, mineral exploration always being concerned with finding anomalous geophysical or geochemical data, framing a model and explanation for the anomaly and then testing it with drilling or excavation. All scientific theories are ultimately false since they invariably involved explaining something with incomplete extant knowledge. Since no one is omniscient or knows everything, so too scientific theories which are solely limited to existing knowledge. Because the future always yields new data, scientific theories must change to be compatible with the new data. Thus a true scientist is never in love with any particular theory, always knowing that when the facts change, so too must he/she change their minds.

    Speaking of nonsense…

    The idea of large asteroids and perhaps even planet sized objects suddenly exiting their existing orbits (or parental bodies) and heading for new ones is not really a contentious issue in mainstream science, even the martian moons Phobos and Demos are usually thought to be captured asteroids and exhibit low escape velocities..


    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moons_of_Mars

    But what if a planet sized body somehow managed to pass close to earth and electrically discharged in the process… what kind of physical evidence would we be likely to find? My guess is that we should be looking for massive electrical discharge craters.

    Several Antarctic stories I read over the years never made any sense to me. They had to do with 3 massive supposed impact craters found in Antarctica…. namely the 480 km wide Wilkes Land crater which supposedly was formed 250 million years ago, the Ross crater at 550 km wide some 23 to 34 million years ago and the 100 km wide Bowers crater formed only 3 million years ago.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_impact_craters_in_Antarctica

    Remember these are all supposed to be IMPACT CRATERS because that’s the only kind that can be officially acknowledged by the current batch of geniuses incapable of understanding reality who are comfortably ensconced in mainstream academia right now.

    So…

    JUST A FEW OF THE TURDS THAT WILL NOT FLUSH

    1) The Chicxulub crater which wiped out 75% of all species on earth 66 million years ago was only 180 km wide yet the Ross crater 22 to 34 million years ago and 550 km wide is not even an Eocene-Oligocene boundary extinction candidate.

    “This was a time of major climatic change, especially cooling, not obviously linked with any single major impact or any catastrophic volcanic event.[2] ”

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eocene%E2%80%93Oligocene_extinction_event

    2) Almost ALL possible asteroid candidates for impact craters are found on the solar ecliptic plane and would not impact the Antarctic at a vertical 90 degree impact angle but almost certainly horizontally and we do not see that kind of structure in these craters. The relatively few Oort cloud candidates rarely enter the system as close as earth.

    3) And before you ask YES the Antarctic has pretty much always been there according to plate tectonics lol!

    4) If these are not electrical discharge craters originating from nearby traveling asteroids, comets or planets then it has to be The Big Zap. More on The Big Zap a little later.

      Before I forget…

      The south magnetic pole today is almost at the same location as the Wilkes Land crater.

      For those looking for catastrophic events…

      A Wilkes Land discharge crater event occurring in 1 km depth of ice would release a volume of water of 237,583 cubic kilometers (gigatonnes). Since oceans cover 360 million square kilometers of the planetary surface the increase in sea level from an event of this magnitude would be .65 meters or about 2 feet.

      And always remember the strong correlations between…

      Deep solar minimums, weakening magnetic field, increased earthquake and volcanic activity, jet stream flow changing from zonal (east-west) to meridional (north-south) resulting in extreme climate change (cooling), increased meteorite impacts, plagues, famine, recorded electrical discharge events and civilizational collapse.

      And not to put too fine a point on this but a solar physicist at the National Solar Observatory says we are heading into a Maunder Minimum. That was a period back between 1645 and 1715 when successive massive famine swept over the world.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_famines

      “Weather isn’t climate, but circumstantial evidence indicates our sun may be entering a grand minimum of sunspot activity, not unlike the Maunder Minimum that some climatologists think caused record low winter temperatures in Northern Europe during the latter half of the 17th century.”

      “My opinion is that we are heading into a Maunder Minimum,” said Mark Giampapa, a solar physicist at the National Solar Observatory (NSO) in Tucson, Arizona. “I’m seeing a continuation in the decline of the sunspots’ mean magnetic field strengths and a weakening of the polar magnetic fields and subsurface flows.”

    Louis,

    This is where you should be looking for whatever it was that caused the deluge that buried those Roman water pipes. Not saying it’s this one but think of all those kimberlite pipes and Yamal B1 not to mention all of those craters everywhere with the ‘nipples’ in the center. Then think of what those currents would do if they hit highly conductive seawater and a fast path to the upper mantle. This is as priceless as when the hockeystick Mann proved the Vikings never inhabited Greenland during the Medieval Not-so Warm Period lol! Enjoy!!

    “What is thought to be the UK’s only space impact crater has been mapped in detail in 3D for the first time. The so-called Silverpit structure lies several hundred metres under the floor of the North Sea, about 130km (80 miles) east of the Yorkshire coast. The new pictures show a spectacular set of rings sweeping out around a 3km-wide (1.8 miles) central hole.”

    “I’m 99% certain – as certain as you can be – that this is an impact structure,” Phil Allen told the BBC News website.The geomorphology of the crater is absolutely right. If you saw that on Mars or any of the other planetary bodies you wouldn’t question it.”

    IF YOU SAW IT ON MARS??? WTF? But wait…it gets better…

    “Allen and Stewart say the inner bowl contains a 300m-high central peak, or nipple, typical of impact craters. This bowl is then surrounded by closely spaced rings, produced by rocks that have collapsed along lines of weakness. The rings stretch out almost 10km from the central point. As far as we’re concerned, the structure is pretty near unique – certainly on Earth,” said Mr Allen, a consultant geophysicist with Production Geoscience Ltd in Aberdeen.

    Although nothing quite like Silverpit can be seen elsewhere on Earth or on the other inner planets, Stewart and Allen say the tight rings are a good match for those of impact craters on Jupiter’s icy moons, such as Europa and Callisto.”

    JUPITER’S ICY MOONS??? Which we see constantly discharging to Jupiter… Hey they know somethings up and are finally going to make the connection… I can just feel it…

    “The two researchers think this may have something to do with the type of surfaces being bombarded. It goes to what’s under the ice in the Jovian examples, which is probably a briny ocean; and what’s under the chalk at Silverpit, which are these shales that may transmit the energy. We are beginning to think the layering is important.”

    SHALES TRANSMITTING ENERGY??? DAMN! . Maybe next ‘impact’ crater lol!
