Tides, Vectors, Scalars, Arctic Flushing, and Resonance

A brief look at why ignoring the direction of lunar tide forces is a bad idea, and why just looking at the size of the scalar portion is not the path to understanding. Continue reading

A Remarkable Lunar Paper and Numbers on Major Standstill

Times of Major Lunar Standstill are special. Very old data matters. The basic value of a computer simulation is to illustrate where our understanding is wrong so we can go back to that very old data and learn something new. It’s the Moon and Sun that matter most. Continue reading

The Moon’s Orbit is Wrong, It Can Change a Lot, And Tides Will Too

What we don’t know about time and tides, and the moon, could fill volumes. This is a bit we do know. It can make bigger tides than we know have, and that can change the global temperatures. This matters, and perhaps it has in the past, too. Continue reading

Calorie Counting Thermometers

I think there is a simple way to demonstrate the basic flaw of the “average temperatures” to see if the planet is warming or cooling. Think of trying to take your body temperature to decide if you are eating too much. That’s what “Climate Scientists” do with global temperatures. Continue reading

Does Anybody Really Know What TSI It Is?

Turns out TSI is a mess an one of the best solar researchers on the planet (IMHO) thinks were up for a Grand Minimum and lower TSI leading to a little ice age. Continue reading
