Researchers claim link between tsunamis and outer space

Researchers claim link between tsunamis and outer space

 


MARK COLVIN: After the devastation of the Aceh tsunami nearly two years ago, Australians have a clear idea of what a tidal wave can do. But imagine a mega tsunami, a tidal wave 10 times bigger than the Aceh event.

A group of scientists from the US, Australia, Russia, France and Ireland have been working on a theory that such mega tsunamis may happen, not every half a million years as astronomers had predicted, but every couple of millennia.

They say they're caused by meteor or asteroid impacts, which they believe have been much more frequent in earth's history than had been believed.

They call themselves Holocene Impact Research Group, and one of their members is Associate Professor Ted Bryant of
Wollongong University
.

He told me one factor behind the theory had been a better way of detecting where asteroids had fallen at sea.

TED BRYANT: It's a technology that's been around for about 10 years. Basically the sea surface reflects the bottom topography. So you get very small changes in the elevation of sea level across the ocean and it's a mirror image at the bottom topography. And you can pick up or measure the sea surface using altimeters on satellites.

MARK COLVIN: So the result of all this is that you think that a lot more comets and asteroids have hit Earth than had been previously thought, with devastating consequences?

TED BRYANT: Definitely and definitely. It's greater than the rate that American astronomers in Spaceguard believe is occurring.

There is a group of astronomers in
Britain
that don't really have objections to what we're looking at and have a higher rate of debris coming in, in the last 10,000 years.

MARK COLVIN: But what it comes down to is that instead of expecting a catastrophic impact every half a million years, you might expect one every few thousand years?

TED BRYANT: Exactly, and it might even be a shorter time frame.

MARK COLVIN: How often do you think there have been big comet impacts near
Australia
?

TED BRYANT: I guess now we're looking at maybe five events in the last 10,000 years.

MARK COLVIN: What kinds of effects did they have?

TED BRYANT: I mainly study tsunami and I think coming from here, we have comet impacts in the ocean, I was looking at shorelines and seeing on shorelines we have indicators of catastrophic erosion and deposition, which is beyond what storms can do and beyond what our historical record of what tsunamis can do.

Tsunamis are generated, 95 per cent of them, by earthquakes and these deposits are higher up than what an earthquake tsunami could do around the Australian coastline.

MARK COLVIN: Some people in
Australia
who have got 'water views' as they say, are already a bit worried about global warming. They're going to be even more worried when they hear you saying that tsunamis are much more likely, much more frequent than anyone ever expected.

TED BRYANT: Well, I have a water view and I'm not worried. There is a periodicity of about 2,500 years and there is... what the British astronomy group believe is a larger comet came into the inner solar system about 15,000 years ago and broke up and the Earth passes through the debris trail of this comet.

And it's quite common. The Earth passes through, annually, about 12 of these debris trails from different comets, broken up comets.

We tend to every 2,500 years pass through... close to the concentrated area of debris of this broken up comet and it's in a stream called the Taurids and the Taurids turn on in the end of June, you see a lot of meteorites there, small meteorites burning up in the sky.

Turns on about the third week of November, which is actually next week. The one 15,000 years ago was particularly big and its left a lot of debris and that is what we're passing through at regular periods giving rise, I think, to some of the comets... the impact craters that we're finding in the ocean.

MARK COLVIN: Your website says a tsunami will happen again sometime soon on a shoreline near you and you give people a lot of safety tips as to where to go if it happens. I mean, that sounds quite alarmist.

TED BRYANT: There I was sitting on Aceh, in
Indonesia, Boxing Day at eight o'clock
in the morning and if you told me a tsunami was going to come in, I would never have believed you.

And certainly if I was on Phuket in
Thailand
, I would have committed you to an insane asylum. If you wait long enough, a tsunami will come into any coastline of the ocean.

MARK COLVIN: Now, it's fair to say that the theories of the Holocene Impact working group are not universally accepted. How much work do you think you still have to do to get full scientific acceptance?

TED BRYANT: It'll be deadly. I'll be dead before the scientific community accepts what we believe. That's the nature of science, I mean, it's not stirring stuff out there, with people coming up with ideas and everybody gone... light bulb stuff.

I haven't been burnt at the stake, and they made Galileo recant and Copernicus, I don't know what they did to him, but no one believed him at the time and they were punished most severely.

I don't put ourselves in the same boat as Galileo or Copernicus, we're just average scientists in a range of fields who've come together and think that we're in agreement.

The scientific community, I wouldn't expect 99.9 per cent of it to agree with us.

Ted Bryant of Wollongong University.

Anonymous Fame

Anonymous Fame

http://www.ugkrishnamurti.org/ug/ug_video/cover1994.jpg

"Have you ever thought about it? We want to be famous as a writer, as a poet, as a painter, as a politician, as a singer, or what you will. Why? Because we really don't love what we are doing. If you loved to sing, or to paint, or to write poems - if you really loved it - you would not be concerned with whether you are famous or not. To want to be famous is tawdry, trivial, stupid, it has no meaning; but, because we don't love what we are doing, we want to enrich ourselves with fame. Our present education is rotten because it teaches us to love success and not what we are doing. The result has become more important than the action.

You know, it is good to hide your brilliance under a bushel, to be anonymous, to love what you are doing and not to show off. It is good to be kind without a name. That does not make you famous, it does not cause your photograph to appear in the newspapers. Politicians do not come to your door. You are just a creative human being living anonymously, and in that there is richness and great beauty."

-         J. Krishnamurti - "Anonymous Creativity" - The Book of Life

It Takes All Kinds: Earth Liberation Front


It Takes All Kinds
Earth Liberation Front - Believe in Life


The Earth needs friends. The only places ever saved from the march of industrial ‘progress' are those protected by aware and active custodians. 

            The termite hive cities are the best place to store most hominids in the early third millennium. Confined to their nests they can do less damage to the ecosystem. In ‘developed' countries most humans are so alienated from nature and their own roots they damage any natural system they attempt to live within - or, more often, on top of. By the time city dwellers have stopped destroying, polluting and exploiting their small urban environments they're ready to take the first steps to immersing themselves in nature - or if they've learned nothing, the first steps to destroying the rest of the planet as well.

            It takes all kinds to make a world and the world needs to be shielded from those who'd destroy it with ‘progress' for their own health-eroding comfort. Living in tune with nature and wildlife is the only way to progress; evolution is stopped by society and the so-called order it provides. A minority of modern humans are psychologically or physically equipped to be stewards and custodians of Creation - our co-creation. Are you one of them? Will you be?

            If a bread-and-circuses existence in the ‘modern' feudal/imperial states fails to fascinate you, you're probably ready to immerse yourself in your own nature and climb out of infantile pupal programs most people are locked into until their dying day - for the benefit of the hive society.

            If you can walk, you're on your way. Immerse yourself in the real world. Very few younger civilized (literally, city-dwelling) people are at a stage where living outside the hive's distractions is distracting or appealing enough - unless a group of young people can cast off together into the great unknown. The younger you leave the brainwashing mind-field the easier it is to find truth, beauty, freedom and love - but it's never too late. Simplifying your life frees up your time and achieving freedom is not ‘downsizing' but expanding. All you have to do to be free is liberate yourself from habits, attachments and excess baggage. Your time is your own - in fact it's all you really have. Time is not money - it's priceless!

            If you need air conditioning or heating you're actually not living in the optimum place or the best structure or system for people to have a great time. In the best homes and home sites the environment is pleasant for humans. Obviously, not everyone can live in paradise - but then, in practice, hardly anyone does. Do you want to? If you live in a place with clean water, air and soil, where snow doesn't fall, you can survive and thrive without the self-negating drone of industrial civilization. Survival's not hard - but to thrive we have to create our own localised societies through cooperative living. As the old saw sings, if we don't hang together we'll surely hang separately.

            You can live in a garden paradise now, today. There are many such places, some already inhabited by people who could use your help. Connected to the world wide web and generating your own electricity (and real power), the tyrannies of isolation and distance involved in living remotely become a doddle.

          
If you have resources, liberate some land and save and regenerate it and yourself. But there's no point moving into an intact pristine paradise if the first thing you're going to do is ‘clear' a few acres of it around yourself. If you've never lived in a forest it's best to live on the forest fringe; buy a cow or sheep ranch that still has water and soil and replace the cattle with plants and Permaculture. Such land - which has already been ‘cleared' or decimated - can survive the few inevitable mistakes everyone's likely to make. It can only be improved. 

Replant trees along the damaged waterways. Resurrect local indigenous (adapted) plants and animals and learn how to live with them - they've been here much longer than humans. Plant food forests and look after them. Do you know how long trees can live if we keep axes and saws away from them? Develop an identification with immortality by watching a tree grow for a few decades or centuries.

            If you don't liberate the land, the cattle will ultimately destroy it - given time. That's how humans habitually make deserts out of gardens. They grow meat - the fruit of the tree of knowledge, if you will - and the meat kills the world.

            If you don't have resources you can start now, today. There are plenty of communities who'll accept you and tolerate your idiosyncrasies - if you accept theirs!

There Is a Sanity Clause

There Is a Sanity Clause
  
photo

Why are you alive?

There is no Santa Claus. There is no tooth fairy. There is no old, whit-bearded man sitting on a throne on the clouds. There is no real, actual Easter bunny - not in this particular universe.

Jesus lived, died and was buried. Moses and Mohammed lived, died and were buried in the earth. No whirlwind, Pegasus or resurrection raised them up into the sky. There is no devil. Priests and lawyers are pathological liars. No books were ever written by god. This is heaven or hell, depending on us.

History is one story written by one-eyed men. Education is brainwashing and schools mostly teach conformity. Babies aren't delivered by stork.

Money doesn't actually exist. There is no such thing as scarcity - only inequity. All leaders, presidents and dictators are power hungry, mediocre madmen. All rulers are tyrants. Democracy (the worst system aside from all the rest) is the tyranny of the majority. All followers get what they deserve. There are no just wars.

Adults are adulterated children. Parents are children with children.

Now the Good News

You are free. Humans are capable of anything. Humans are telepathic, clairvoyant and can learn to levitate, become invisible and move matter with mind. Humans control their own fertility. Humans are incarnate immortals whose aeternal memories await recovery. Mind and matter are one and anything is possible.

The past is a dream, the future isn't what it used to be and there's no time but the present. Life is what you make it and love is why we're here. You create your own reality.
Thou art god and the lotus rises through mud, sludge and liquid to bloom in the air and light.

There's only one rule - the Golden Rule. But it comes in two forms - be careful which one you choose;

1: Those who have the gold, rule.

2: Do to others as you'd be done by.

Can you guess which belief system will save you and the planet? Which vision leads to a great society, do you think? Which leads to busy-ness as usual?
If you can't decide, ask a child or a hippie - they always know (and tell) the truth.

Top scientist asks: is life all just a dream?

Top scientist asks: is life all just a dream?

Jonathan  Leake


DEEP THOUGHT, the supercomputer created by novelist Douglas Adams, got there first, but now the astronomer royal has caught up. Professor Sir Martin Rees is to suggest that "life, the universe and everything" may be no more than a giant computer simulation with humans reduced to bits of software.
Rees, Royal Society professor of astronomy at Cambridge University, will say that it is now possible to conceive of computers so powerful that they could build an entire virtual universe. 


The possibility that what we see around us may not actually exist has been raised by philosophers many times dating back to the ancient Greeks and appears repeatedly in science fiction. 

However, many scientists have always been dismissive, saying the universe was far too complex and consistent to be a simulation.
Despite this, the idea has persisted, popularised in films such as Tom Cruise's Vanilla Sky and The Matrix, starring Keanu Reeves.

It was also the basis for The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, written by Adams, who died in 2001. In the book, Deep Thought creates the Earth and its human inhabitants as a giant calculating device to answer the "ultimate question". 

The BBC's rerun of the radio version of Hitchhiker finished recently, just as Rees was putting together his contribution to the debate in which he will concede that the depictions by Adams, Cruise and Reeves might have been right after all.
In a television documentary, What We Still Don't Know, to be screened on Channel 4 next month, he will say: "Over a few decades, computers have evolved from being able to simulate only very simple patterns to being able to create virtual worlds with a lot of detail. 

"If that trend were to continue, then we can imagine computers which will be able to simulate worlds perhaps even as complicated as the one we think we're living in.
"This raises the philosophical question: could we ourselves be in such a simulation and could what we think is the universe be some sort of vault of heaven rather than the real thing. In a sense we could be ourselves the creations within this simulation." 

Rees will emphasise that this is just a theory. But it is being increasingly discussed by other eminent physicists and cosmologists. 

Among them is John Barrow, professor of mathematical sciences at Cambridge University. He points out that the universe has a degree of fine tuning that makes it safe for living organisms. 

Even a tiny alteration in a fundamental force or a constant such as gravity would make stars burn out, atoms fly apart, and the world as we know it become impossible. Such fine tuning, he has said, could be taken as evidence for some kind of intelligent designer being at work. 

"Civilisations only a little more advanced than ourselves will have the capability to simulate universes in which self-conscious entities can emerge and communicate with one another," he said. 

The idea that life, the universe and everything in it could be an illusion dates back more than 2,000 years. Chuang Tzu, the Chinese philosopher, who died in 295BC, wondered whether his entire life might be no more than a dream. 

René Descartes, the 17th century French philosopher, raised similar questions. But he famously came down in favour of existence, saying: "I think, therefore I am." 

The idea was resurrected last century, notably by Bertrand Russell, who suggested that humans could simply be "brains in a jar" being stimulated by chemicals or electrical currents - an idea that was quickly taken up and developed by science fiction writers such as Isaac Asimov. 

However, some academics pour cold water on the notion of a machine-created universe. Seth Lloyd, professor of quantum mechanical engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said such a computer would have to be unimaginably large. 

"The Hitchhiker's Guide is a great book but it remains fiction," he said.



As regular readers may know, one of our favourite quotes is "All that we can see or seem is but a dream within a dream" - Omar Khayyam. We've only had the terminology to describe what the universe might actually be for a little over a decade. A fractal hologram, an infinitely recursive quasi-Mandelbrot (isn't the similarity between 'Mandelbrot' and "Mandala' slightly fascinating?), an 11-dimensional brane, all terms which skate the surface of deeper reality and the nature of multiple intersecting and interpenetrating dimensions. Until these words appeared it was extremely difficult to work with these apparently slippery concepts - or even to conceive of them. And popular culture has certainly made its contribution to the new noosphere...

The future isn't what it used to be. As all the world is mindstuff, we all need to have better, happier dreams and pictures of our future if we are to deserve a great millennium. We are the programmers. Thou art God.

Do we dare to dream of paradise, here, now? It's the only place it ever is.
Wake up?

Greenhouse gases hit record high


Greenhouse gases hit record high

Globe showing bands of temperature change   Image: Climateprediction.net 

The steady rise in atmospheric levels of the greenhouse gases blamed for climate change shows no signs of abating, a UN agency has announced.

The atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide rose by about half a percent in 2005, the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) said.

It said levels were likely to keep rising unless emissions of CO2, methane and nitrogen oxides were slashed.

The announcement comes on the eve of UN climate negotiations in Nairobi.

"There is no sign that N2O (nitrous oxide) and CO2 are starting to level off," Geir Braathen, a senior scientist at the WMO, told reporters.

            To make CO2 level off we will need more drastic measures than are in the Kyoto Protocol today. "It looks like it will just continue like this for the foreseeable future."

Scientists say the accumulation of such gases - generated by burning fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas - traps energy coming originally from the Sun, causing global temperatures to rise.

This is expected to lead to melting of polar ice caps and glaciers, rising sea levels and more extreme weather events such as storms and floods.

'Drastic measures'

The WMO said concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2) were measured at 379.1 parts per million (ppm), up 0.53% from 377.1 ppm in 2004.

Concentrations of nitrous oxide (N2O) reached 319.2 ppm in 2005, an annual increase of 0.2%.

Levels of methane, another greenhouse gas, remained stable, it said.

The trend of growing emissions from industry, transport and power generation is set to continue despite international agreements on regulating them, the UN agency warned.

"To really make CO2 level off we will need more drastic measures than are in the Kyoto Protocol today," Geir Braathen explained.

"Every human being on this globe should think about how much CO2 he or she emits and try to do something about that."

Compulsory caps

The Kyoto Protocol sets limits for emissions of six greenhouse gases for the richer countries of the world which have ratified it. The period for which targets exist runs until 2012.

CO2 chart 

World seeks climate compact

The US and Australia have rejected the compulsory cap. China has ratified the Protocol, but as a developing nation, it is not required to reduce its emissions - despite its booming economy.

A report by former World Bank economist Sir Nicholas Stern this week warned of severe problems if global warming was ignored.

Governments involved in the United Nations climate convention and the Kyoto Protocol are due to meet in Nairobi from Monday to examine their future path in combatting global warming.

The latest data were gathered from monitoring stations, ships and aircraft around the world and are published in the WMO's second annual Greenhouse Gas Bulletin.


                       

We can't continue to follow these blind 'leaders' any further into their feudal/industrial pit. It's time to create something new - a new system, a new humanity. What are you doing to save the planet? What are you doing to stop your own 'passive' destruction of it?

The hippies are right. (In)vested interests are always liars. Perhaps it's time to come out of Babylon, people - time to respond and take responsibility for ourselves. Time to learn the difference between wants and needs - while some of our nations still have what we need and can create a great life.

Don't wait until it's too late - you know that our industrial and political leaders WILL.

It's possible to maintain a modern, great standard of living WITHOUT polluting and destroying the world - but we have to do it ourselves; there's only small amounts of MONEY to be made out of self-sufficiency, low growth and health, after all.

Chernobyl haunts the Norwegian uplands


Chernobyl haunts the Norwegian uplands



Tougher controls on the slaughter of sheep have been imposed in Norway after they were found to be contaminated with unusually high levels of radioactivity from the Chernobyl disaster in 1986.

The Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority (NRPA) says the problem has arisen because the sheep have feasted on an unusually large crop of mushrooms, which were more plentiful than usual because of wet weather. Previous research has shown that fungi take up more radioactivity from the soil than grasses or other plants.

There are 36 areas of upland Norway where Chernobyl contamination still requires controls on sheep. According to the NRPA, levels of caesium-137 from the Chernobyl disaster reached 7000 becquerels per kilogram in sheep this year, more than twice maximum levels in previous years.

Farmers can reduce the level of radioactivity in sheep by giving them non-contaminated food for a month before slaughter. For some farmers, this period will now have to be doubled to reduce caesium-137 levels to below Norway's safety limit of 600 bq/kg.

Per Strand, the NRPA's head of environmental radioactivity, stresses that the precautions mean that lamb on the market is safe to eat. He says, though, that the discovery of such high levels of radioactivity so long after the Chernobyl accident came as a surprise.

"No one at the time expected contamination to be so high more than 20 years after the event," he says.

Nuclear security special: Disaster waiting to happen


Enough uranium for thousands of bombs, in decaying facilities, amid doubtful security - and this is in the US.

Spontaneous combustion is not high on most people's list of worries, but when it happens to materials at one of the world's oldest and largest storage centres for weapons-grade uranium, it is a different matter.

On 22 September, the plastic wrapping around some uranium at the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, burst into flames as a technician was removing it inside a glovebox. Exposed to air, the uranium had heated up and ignited the plastic.

The fire took place in a large wooden warehouse built in 1944 to help the Manhattan Project, set up to develop nuclear weapons. The warehouse is one of the facility's main stores for its 400 tonnes of highly enriched uranium, and is now officially rated as a fire hazard, according to an assessment in 1996 by the US Department of Energy (DoE).

In this case the incident was contained, but a major ...

A short memory may not be an appropriate tool for dealing with unclear energy and the millions of years of toxic damage to our world that is its legacy. Nuclear power isn't a viable option to economic growth or saving the planet - see http://gonow.to/freeenergy for some solutions. The second page even holds disposal solutions!

Reactors are for reactionaries. It's the third millennium - let's consign these poisonous, antiquated steam engines (Yes - that's what they actually are - the use radioactive materials to boil water. How high-tech! What vision!) to the past where they belong. All they're good for is making nuclear weapons and 'depleted' munitions.

Let's listen to wisdom for a change. Leave it in the ground where it belongs. And if you reaally don't know - see http://www.ericblumrich.com/pl_lo.html now!
