Kroll on Cosmological Climate Factors

I have recently become familiar with Hank Kroll’s speculations on the apparent path of our sun and the possibility that that path has impacted on our climate. Hank Kroll is an Alaskan sea captain and fisherman with college background from the sixties who has caught the bug of digging up new science. He has pumped out several books on various subjects and is putting one out shortly on his cosmological ideas.

Like many he is inspired by ancient sources that hint at knowledge that we are trying to rediscover. The danger with that is to rely too heavily on the metaphors used.

What he has put together is that the sun is possibly in an elongated orbit with Sirius whose period is around 100,000 years. The Sirius group of stars including our own is traveling towards the constellation Hercules. In addition he points out that a possibly related star (Barnard’s Loop) exploded three million years ago, possibly altering the dynamics of the Sirius cluster and perhaps destabilizing the sun’s orbit around Sirius.

So far so good. What is lacking is measurement precision. A study was done estimating our velocity against the background of nearby stars and we apparently are 8.5 light years away and are heading back (Why if not an orbit?). A real effort is needed to refine this possible orbit. Barnard’s loop is much more problematic, but in fairness accepted ideas about it are just as problematic. I never forget that astronomy is the science that looks good but cannot be tested except from one viewpoint.

The payoff for this theory is that it places the sun in the Sirius group before three million years ago on an apparent 54 year orbit and subjected to much more UV energy. This allows the unusual conditions of the carboniferous age to even be explained and the additional lack of polar icecaps until recent geological time. As Hank points out, this also provides enough energy to end the initial ice bound state of earth before the emergence of life.

Of course, we still do not know any of this and are in need of an accurate orbital path. What I have just described is plausible and needs to be modeled and tested. And while we are at it we need to look around to see if we are eventually vulnerable to other stellar interactions. I say this because this is a new orbit and it is possibly unstable. This implies that we could easily be captured by another sun within ten light years of Sirius and we cannot anticipate the level of perturbation on a pass by Sirius.

The day is coming when we send a space telescopes out a long ways and start getting an accurate picture of what is happening out there. A moon on Jupiter would be fine.

The mass/gravity figures along with velocity and distance are in the book.

Sirius A+B at 8.5 LY is 3.5 solar masses thereore it has over 3 times the gravity of our sun. Then you have Procyon at 10.4 LY from our sun 2+ solar masses add to this the gravity of the Galaxy istelf which is transmitted in a spiral from star to star creating the great spiral of the Orion Arm. When you total all that mass up the gravity in the direction of Orion is over 25 times that of our sun and we are heading in that general direction toward Sirius at 7.5 kilometers per second.

I had two astronomers do their own math and the orbit period is 105,000 years which corresponds with the present Ice Age cycle.

Cosmological Ice Ages is 400 pages with 30 or so color star charts, prints, and diagrams. The essoteric data will blow your socks off. Ancient stone monuments dipict two suns in the sky. Hopeully it will be availalbe at maor booksellers next month and:

I know it is difficult to accept the fact that we are in orbit around Sirius A & B. One would have to see all the evidence before wrapping their mind around the obvious.

Before our capture by the Sirius multiple star system Earth and Mars had high pressure atmospheres and was in the Huronian Glaciation one billion years. The sun could never pierce such an atmosphere to get plankton to grow to release free oxygen. Mainstream data said 750 PSI or 50 bars. Given the fact that Earth was smaller in diameter at that time such an atmosphere would be 3,000 miles deep. You would never see the sun. It took the power of a white dwarf putting out more than 100 times the UV of our sun to get the plankton to grow and create the explosion of different life forms during the Edicaran and Cambrian Eras.

The Banard's loop explosion is the only event that fits the timeline where Earth started having ice caps for the first time in 65-million years.

We have made 58 orbits around Sirius after that event. The first ice ages were only a few hundred years where Earth had small ice caps. Now we go out to 9 light years where most of the Earth is covered with ice for 90-thousand years.

The only reason we are nit sitting under a mile of ice right now is because somebody came along and tilted Earth 23.5 degrees in relation to the sun thawing the ice caps back 1,800 miles so they could mine gold. They didn't do it to extend the life of the planet and give us a few more thousand years to become conscious but that is what happened. This event doubled arable land and doubled the productivity of the oceans with increased sunlight penetrating the depths which doubled plankton growth to replenish the atmosphere.

Now stupid humans have cut down and burned over 2/3 of the rain forests. Half the plankton and fish in the oceans are missing and over half the topsoil has either blown away or been flushed down river into the oceans. We have poisoned all our food with radiation from several reactor meltdowns. To read more about this check out my blogs. When are we going to grow up?
