The video above ^^^^^ - the effects of global cooling on the digestive tracks of rats and horses changed history. :amazed:

 

Below - star-metal impactors. That sounds so cool.

Milky Way Heading For Catastrophic Collision
This galactic collision would happen much sooner than the predicted impact between the Milky Way and another neighbour, Andromeda. Researchers say there is a small chance that the initial collision could send our Solar System hurtling into space.

J Harlen Bretz was an American geologis. Bretz published a paper in 1923, arguing that the channeled scablands in Eastern Washington were caused by massive flooding in the distant past. This was seen as arguing for a catastrophic explanation of the geology. The Geological Society of Washington, D.C invited the young Bretz to present his previously published research at a 12 January 1927 meeting where several other geologists presented competing theories. Bretz saw this as an ambush, and referred to the group as six "challenging elders". Their intention was to defeat him in a public debate, and thereby end the challenge his theories posed to their conservative interpretation of uniformitarianism.

 

Bretz defended his theories, kicking off an acrimonious 40 year debate over the origin of the Scablands. As he wrote in 1928, "Ideas without precedent are generally looked upon with disfavour and men are shocked if their conceptions of an orderly world are challenged." J.T. Pardee had worked with Bretz and had evidence of an ancient glacial lake that lent credence to Bretz's theories. Pardee, however, lacked the academic freedom of Bretz (he worked for the US Geological Survey) and did not enter the fray. Both Pardee and Bretz continued their research over the next 30 years, collecting and analyzing evidence that eventually identified Lake Missoula as the source of the Spokane Floods and creator of the Channeled Scablands. Research on open channel hydraulics in the 1970s further vindicated Bretz's and Pardee's theories.

For many, old lies are easier to believe than new facts.

Sadly when it comes to the source material that we rely on to make policy decisions like "scientific" studies massive egos play an even larger role. Scientists will lie their butts off to get funding on their pet projects.

I am worried and concerned about it.

 

Seeing the end of the world is on my bucket list and I don't have much time left to see.

 

;)

 

Wouldn't that be a "kick the bucket" list Klaatu? :B
