Remember the wacky satellites cause global warming theory? Maria Brumm has found another one. Global warming has caused a fivefold increase in seismic activity. And this one was published by CBS news (though it’s now been deleted) and picked up by Matt Drudge. Brumm comments:
Cursory examination reveals that Dr. Tom Chalko is a complete wackaloon! Even if you do not know the first thing about seismology, consider the warning signs that this “research” may actually be an attractive organic fertilizer:
Research article is published in a journal where 5/5 articles in the current issue are authored solely by… Dr. Tom Chalko!
She has three more, and I’d like to add my own.
Chalko isn’t a seismologist, he’s a mechanical engineer formerly at Melbourne University. His research plan for 2001-2005 is still on Melbourne U’s web site:
Research requirements: stable employment and time to think
Albert Einstein spent the last 30 years of his life trying to integrate gravity with other laws of physics and did not succeed. The entire scientific community on Earth remains intrigued with the problem of gravity ever since.
If gravity is a special electromagnetic field – why can’t we generate it? If generation of gravity is possible – it should be also possible, under certain conditions, to overcome gravity.
Practicing “engineering” without the understanding of gravity is a phenomenal waste of resources, and energy. It is also the main reason for the planetary pollution and destruction of Nature. Isn’t the most of the “energy” that we generate on Earth used to lift things up and move them around?
A method to generate and overcome gravity would be arguably the most significant scientific discovery in the history of humanity, that would dramatically change the way we live on Earth.
My aim is to make the above discovery and place the University of Melbourne in an international spotlight. On the basis of several years of preliminary studies, I estimate that the development of the necessary theory and presenting it in a form of a book (“The Nature of Gravity”) will take approximately 5 years.
Alas, the short-sighted people at Melbourne University didn’t take advantage of this chance to be in the international spotlight and 2001 was his last year there.
