Planetary Influence on the Sun and the Earth, and a Modern Book-Burning
Eminent scientists publish important new book about the fundamental components of solar physics, terrestrial geophysics and general climate issues. Phenomena such as planetary influence on solar variability, the Sun’s irradiance and solar wind continue to fascinate members of the scientific community. Increasingly, we are realizing it is those overwhelming forces, not human influence, that dictate our planet’s climate.
The new book, ‘Planetary Influence on the Sun and the Earth, and a Modern Book-Burning,’ is edited by internationally-renowned scientist, Nils-Axel Mörner (Paleogeophysics & Geodynamics, Stockholm, Sweden). He and many other independent experts condemn the ‘settled science’ mentality of government climate researchers intolerant of dissent from alarmist UN propaganda about man-made global warming.
What is more astounding is the way in which our planet reacts to those entirely natural occurrences; climate changes, sea levels, tides, ocean circulation and geomagnetism, all caused by the processes mentioned above, but which are too often glibly overlooked by self-serving, government-funded research. This new book analyzes and calculates the relationships between solar causation and terrestrial reaction.
This work begins with a foreword from Walter Cunningham, the famous Apollo 7 astronaut who in 1968 took part in the first manned space flight.
Section A is devoted to the concept of planetary-solar-terrestrial interaction and driving forces that represent a break-through in science. The book begins with a high-lightening of records indicating a planetary influence on solar activity and continues with multiple discussions of terrestrial variables. It concludes with an account of the physics behind the changes in the Sun and in the Earth.
Section B presents the remarkable decision to terminate the journal of pattern recognition in physics because the authors concluded that we are now on our way into a new grand solar minimum. This inspires doubt in an accelerating global warming. In the name of science and ethics, five papers respond to this “modern book-burning”.
Section C is devoted to general conclusions, co-authored by 19 eminent scientists in the field of solar physics, geophysics, geology, hydrology and climatology. It also includes a short note on concluding editorial views.
Review by Astrophysicist, Willie Soon:
After close to 25 years of my full-time scientific research on the Sun-Earth connection, most books in this area fail to hold my attention and curiosity for any reasonable period of time. However, this book is a true exception.
Professor Nils- Axel Mörner’s cumulative talent and knowledge of the Sun and planetary sciences is wonderfully synthesized in this thin volume of book (about 220 pages). Mörner excellently conveys the beauty of the pursuit of science and true knowledge in our Sun and the planets (including our dear Earth) that orbit about it.
Despite your background, all students interested in earth, solar and planetary sciences can learn a lot from this well-written book. Focusing on two broad themes, this book challenges every curiosity-driven researcher. The first 150 pages present a state-of-the art discussion of the science of our solar system and how the Sun affects climate and life on our home planet.
The last 70 pages focus on the unfortunate anti-science “book burning”-like efforts that have arisen in our time. Mörner discloses how a major publisher shut down a viable scientific journal simply because the editors allowed articles to be published that diverged from the socalled “scientific consensus” on anthropogenic global warming.
This book, together with the somber foreward by the Apollo 7 pilot Walter Cunningham, is a brilliant masterpiece that takes one to a better understanding of the Sun-planet interactions and demonstrates that corruption from anti-science forces in social and political spheres can undermine the true scientific quest for knowledge.
I congratulate Professor Mörner and many of the distinguished contributors to this book for their excellent addition to science. The details of the science outlined in the book regarding how the planets influence both the Sun and, in turn, the Earth-Moon system, are far too complex to outline here.
But prospective readers should be excited to know that this book will wet their appetite for the science on a variety of subjects ranging from variations in solar activity and solar flares to changes in sea levels. Students of the history of science also will be intrigued with the second part of this book.
The attack on scientific inquiry is well described herein and several sharp commentaries by Christopher Monckton of Brenchley and Giovanni Gregori highlight the grave importance of protecting scientific freedom and inquiry and why this is of fundamental concern to our society. This book takes a bold and novel viewpoint that often diverges from the consensus view. But the arguments are substantive and impressive and serve to clarify our understanding of the Sun, the Earth-Moon binary planet system, and the other planets that share our solar system.
Make no mistake; this book is not a superficial treatment of the topic. While the discussions may be quite technical for introductory readers but the individual chapters are well-written in a jargon-free, easy-to-read manner. This book is a good read for all humble students of science, regardless of their background. While this substantive book is technically-written, it also contains a good sense of humor – which makes it an entertaining read.
I highly recommended Planetary influence on the Sun and the Earth and a Modern Book-Burning, especially to those professional scientists and students who may think they understand all there is to know about the Sun-Earth climate connection. It’s divergence from the UN IPCC’s reports presents a fresh perspective and facilitates a new understanding of recent changes to our Earth’s climate.
Finally, I am very touched by the editor’s boundless energy and restless curiosity in writing this book, with nearly all the even-numbered pages filled with marvelous illustrations and collections of relevant photos or artistic paintings. Indeed, this book is a labor of love with no pages devoid of science and beauty. Willie Soon Cambridge, MA, USA February 20, 2015
