Another Expert Agrees With Dark Comet Theory

February 21, 2013 – 11:31 am | No Comment

Astronomer David Asher (from Armagh University) has agreed with Bill Napier and Janaki Wickramasinghe (Cardiff University) that “dark comets” are real and dangerous.
The following quotes are from a paper by Napier and Asher published in Astronomy & Geophysics.

We know that about one bright comet (of absolute magnitude as bright as 7, comparable to Halley’s Comet) arrives in the visibility zone (perihelion q<5AU, say) each year from the Oort cloud. It seems to be securely established that ~1–2% of these are captured into Halleytype (HT) orbits. The dynamical lifetime of a body in such an orbit can be estimated, from which the expected number of HT comets is perhaps ~3000. The actual number of active HT comets is ~25. This discrepancy of at least two powers of 10 in the expected impact rate from comets as deduced from this theoretical argument on the one hand, and observations on the other, is …

Tambora Awakens

The 1815 Mount Tambora eruption. The red areas...

In 1815 Mount Tambora erupted, killing 90,000 locals and affecting the weather of the entire planet.

Aside from a few minor bursts in steam in the 1960s, the mountain has been quiet for much of the last 200 years. Gede Suantika of the government’s Center for Volcanology said activity first picked up in April, with the volcanic quakes jumping from less than five a month to more than 200.

“It also started spewing ash and smoke into the air, sometimes as high as 1,400 meters (4,600 feet),” he said. “That’s something I’ve never seen it do before.”

Authorities raised the alert to the second-highest level two weeks ago, but said only villagers within 2 miles (3 kilometers) from the crater needed to evacuate. [Washington Post]

In theory it takes more than 200 years for such a volcano to erupt with the same intensity as last time. So we probably shouldn’t be concerned…

    As a precaution – since some ‘expert’ says in ‘theory’ and indicates that it takes some 200 years for a volcano to repeat itself … oh, my goodness – we best not be concerned.
    There is a related post with this posting = Tsunami Underestimation – When Will We Learn – I believe the tsunami that was recently in Japan was not within its time frame to repeat.

  • Steve Hunter says:

    My teachers at High School always said to beware of Theory as Practical is the real thing.
    And in relation to time lines about when Tsunami and other phenomenon will occur, it seems they fall under the heading of possibility/theories etc.
    I believe that nature will have the last word.
    And I say NATURE, not God.

    Look after our planet. Its the only one we have.
    Good luck.
