Mr Trump’s beach properties will submerge long before our major cities and farms go under, and his empire will be bankrupt, but unless global-warming is stopped – unless we hold at 400 parts per million of CO2 in the upper atmosphere – most of the coastal margins will be flooded and the whole human race will have to adjust. We might move to higher-ground, migrate to newly liberated, ice-free polar lands, or build floating cities, but we cannot live underwater. We are not adapted to it. OR – maybe the Mini-Ice-Age cometh. … More Trump’s Underwater Empire
I really don’t like to brag – anymore than do most other human beings – but as a “distinguished futurist” looking at the far future, I rarely get an opportunity, or expect to live long enough, to see the quantum wave forms of my forecasts collapse into tangible reality. But now, …such a far fetched … More Zero-Tax in Zero-Gravity
A few nights back, to improve my sombre mood, induced by the shocking Trump win, my good wife took me to to see Arrival – an alien Sci-Fi movie; described in the Guardian as: … More The Aliens Are Here.
The Royal Astronomical Society – met on the 9th July 2015, in, of all the places under the sun, in Llandudno, North Wales; a coastal town of very little architectural merit, where I spent many a jolly childhood holiday, they met to warn mankind of the coming ice-age. … More A New Ice Age in Global Warming Era?
Well – it’s Monday – and I have survived from being attacked by a three-year-old, my grandson, Ben. His mother tells me that Ben weighs in at 2 Stone – that’s 28 lbs (12.7 kilograms). I can testify that he is 28 lbs of solid bone and muscle. What a sturdy little chap! As I … More Can Trump survive a 28 lb attack?
This morning, my daughter, three-year-old grandson and my wife’s publisher and her daughter are coming for coffee. At 73, I now have to go and crawl around the floor as creche minder, playing with Lego and avoiding impact from fantastically heavy and strong infants. I will probably be too stiff to move tomorrow. So, I … More Will the White House Kill Trump?
An actual decay of a suspected Higgs boson into two gamma rays (thick green lines) in the CMS detector recorded in 2012. Image credit: CERN With apologies to BBC Radio 4 programme “I’m Sorry – I haven’t a Clue” our indefatigable, critical correspondent – Mrs Trellis of North Wales – writes “Your description … More The Higgs Boson uncloaked.
Trump has pledged, for good social reasons, to re-open America’s coal mines and to burn American oil and gas, to create jobs in The Rust Belt that have been lost to progress. But if he does this, it will take us beyond 400 parts per million (PPM) of CO2 and average temperatures will inevitably rise by +3C or +4C. … More Trump wins – & bans global-warming
Contrariwise – when matter disintegrates in atomic explosions or implosions, the energy is released into the field (ocean) and the additional coherence slows Hubble-Expansion. Thus the 3 cosmic forms, Matter, Dark Energy and Dark Matter interact in an eternal dance. … More MATTER & ENERGY ARE IN BALANCE
