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.

Don't count on El Niño to Solve the Drought

Recent reports about the potential for a “significant” El Nino and the effect this would have on weather in the United States have specifically focused on whether this might be the answer everyone is looking for to solve the severe drought whose effects are being felt across California, which is also currently being ravaged by serious wildfires.  The 2015 Sierra Nevada snowpack is at a 500-year record low.

A Universe in the very small

The past few years have seen the news peppered with articles about the sub-subatomic: elementary particles, more elementary than protons or neutrons, that make up everything. These particles have only been able to be studied under extreme conditions, where energies equivalent to a million billion degrees are looked down upon as too weak.

Towards a Galactic Science Driver: The Solar System's Motion Through the Galaxy • Part 1

Our Galaxy presents mankind with a new scientific frontier, expressed in different ways. In astronomical terms, it is not clear how the galaxy exists and operates as a single, unified system. In terms of the Earth's history, we see records of dramatic climate changes, variations in geophysical activity, and even fluctuations in the evolutionary process of life all corresponding to the changing relationship of our Solar System with the Galaxy. While these are often presented as independent studies, the 2015 Basement research report “Towards a Galactic Science Driver” examines these as aspects of a single challenge: the quest to understand the unifying principle of our Galaxy, as Kepler had discovered the unifying principle of our Solar System.

In a continuation of this effort, here we will examine what we know (and what we don't know) about the motion of our Solar System through the Galaxy. This will be addressed in a series of posts.

Physical Economic Case Study: Costs of the Failure to Go Nuclear – Part 2

There is no such thing as an infinitely sustainable steady state for an economic process. To exist an economy must continually generate and implement scientific and technological progress. Without this progress an economy will become entropic, drawing down resource supplies and requiring an increasing physical cost to society to produce and provide the capital goods needed by society. Perhaps one of the clearest examples is the failure of the US economy to fully embrace the revolutionary transition to nuclear power. 

Here is part two of a brief, two-part investigation (part one can be found here).

Solar Grand Minima & the New Madrid Seismic Zone

I recently reviewed a white paper by former director of meteorology for the Weather Channel, Joseph D’Aleo, on the potential effects global cooling could have on agriculture, in light of a recent flurry of discussion about the potential for a new mini ice age.

Bertrand Russell, in 1895, Pre-Ordains that the Quantum and Relativity Will Never Be Discovered

The depths of the present strategic crisis, in which Obama’s actions drive a process that makes a US/NATO confrontation with Russia becomes more possible by the day, cannot be understood without posing the question: how have people, generally, allowed this situation to develop?

A Brief Review “Food Security and Climate” White Paper by Joseph D’Aleo

LaRouchePAC recently initiated a “Defeat Green Fascism” campaign in response to the renewed push for a scare campaign around hypothetical catastrophic global warming caused by man’s activities.  Executive Intelligence Review will soon release a publication exposing the fraudulent premises of this, which have their roots in an intentional depopulation agenda.
