A response to Michael Cernovich: The secret to making America great again, understanding true source of wealth


We should then recognize that the development of basic economic infrastructure had always been a needed creation of what is required as an ‘habitable’ development of a ‘synthetic,’ rather than a presumably ‘natural’ environment for the enhancement, or even the possibility of human life and practice at some time in the existence of our human species.… Man as a creator in the likeness of the great Creator, is expressed by humanity's creation of the ‘artificial environments’ we sometimes call ‘infrastructure,’ on which both the progress, and even the merely continued existence of civilized society depends.

Pro-Nuclear CO₂ Reduction is a Terrible Policy, With Deadly Results

[read as pdf] Even though opposition to nuclear power has been central to the zero-growth Malthusian movement since the late-1960s, the man-made climate change catastrophe propaganda campaign has increasingly driven some to place a growing emphasis on nuclear fission and fusion power as the basis of a CO₂ emissions reduction policy. 

Any attempt to mandate a CO₂ reduction policy—even while supporting nuclear power technologies critical to mankind’s future—is a horrific policy, and would condemn hundreds of millions of people to unnecessary suffering and premature death.

Notes on the Legacy of Lyndon LaRouche and the Future of Science

Over a long and productive life, Lyndon LaRouche, Jr. provided a myriad of inter-related original contributions to science, art, and philosophy, all flowing from his central discovery in, what he emphasized, was the over-arching field of the science of physical economy (LaRouche, paraphrasing Carl Gauss, called his science of physical economy the “king of the sciences”). Current and future specialists in these fields, as well the rarer renaissance polymath, will, undoubtedly, bring forth new and unexpected discoveries from the implications of these contributions, especially as mankind extends his economic reach beyond the Earth.

Earth as a Geological Telescope for Studying Galactic Physics

Some have called it cosmoclimatology.  Following pioneering work done by Henrik Svensmark, Nir Shaviv showed that changes in the galactic environment experienced by our Solar System have been the largest drivers of climate change on Earth over the past half billion years—mediated through the role of galactic cosmic radiation in cloud formation.

Vernadsky’s Thoughts on LaRouche’s Second Triad

In 2014 Lyndon LaRouche outlined a new conceptual insight into the development of modern science over the past millennium, identifying two multi-personality, multi-generational processes of scientific revolution: one, successful, and, a second, still wanting completion.[1]  Within LaRouche’s circles, these came to be referred to as the “two triads” of scientific revolution—each consisting of an investigation of (1) a minimum expression, (2) a maximum expression, and (3) a unifying resolution. 

This wasn’t presented as a history lesson.

The Anthropocene Viewed from the Noosphere, Revisited

Months ago there was a flurry of articles and studies about “The Anthropocene,” in the context of a debate among scientists about whether mankind had altered the planet to such an extent that that activity could be recognized as a new geological time period, meaning that clear signatures were present in Earth’s geology to reflect those changes. In addition, the question was when these signatures indicated such a change.

“The Anthropocene” viewed from Vernadsky’s Noosphere

The recent publication of studies highlighting the role of mankind as a powerful geological force, referred to as the “Anthropocene,” serve as a good opportunity to clarify how this concept overlaps and differs from Vladimir Vernadsky’s concept of the noosphere (and a great way to honor him just before his upcoming birthday on March 12th!).

In Defense of The Noosphere, "The Kingdom of Reason" : The Fallacy and Fraud of COP21

World leaders are currently convening in Paris for an unprecedented meeting in which they are expected to resolve to implement measures to curb a supposedly catastrophic increase in the average global temperature by 2 degrees Celsius by the end of the century, deemed to be a scientific certainty by various oracles, unless we change our ways.  There is much to be said about this meeting; not only that it is premised on a scientific fraud (that carbon dioxide is far from the main cause of climate change on Earth), but also other biting ironies such as even the fact of the meeting itself in a city reeling from a terror attack just weeks prior caused by a complete failure of world leaders, led by President Obama, to deal with an actual global crisis emanating from a part of the world which has been overrun by chaos.

New Study Bolsters Vernadsky’s Case for Origin of Life

A recent study suggests that life on Earth may have begun long before we thought: to be precise, around 4.1 billion years ago. This is 300 million years before the previous best estimate, and would indicate that life began shortly after the planet itself formed, around 4.54 billions years ago.

Mathamatics vs Science: Low Energy Nuclear Reactions

20151102_155743.jpg
That's me holding the LENR reactor core. Wonder how they got this one through security.  Behind me is Brillouin Energy CEO Robert Georges.

Monday Nov 2 Brillouin Energy presented in work in the Rayburn Congressional building.  The company has decided to go ahead with a track to commercialize a reactor that uses low energy nuclear reactions to produce heat and electricity.  Low energy nuclear reactions (LENR), sometimes known (inaccurately) as  “cold fusion”, has been a subject of heated debate, rivaling manmade climate change. Despite years of data showing that nuclear reactions can occur at relatively low energy, as the CEO’s of Brillouin Energy illustrated with several personal accounts, the existence of the phenomenon is still controversial.  So controversial, that national labs have denied contracts to perform even very isolated tests such as materials or pressure testing.
