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 …

Gingrich Fears EMP Doomsday

Submitted by on December 15, 2011 – 3:30 pm2 Comments

It is certainly reassuring when a leading politician mentions the possibility of a catastrophe that most people are unaware of. Newt Gingrich is the subject of an article this week at the NY Times:

In debates and speeches, interviews and a popular book, he is ringing alarm bells over what experts call the electromagnetic pulse, or EMP — a poorly understood phenomenon of the nuclear age.

The idea is that if a nuclear weapon, lofted by a missile, were detonated in outer space high above the American heartland, it would set off a huge and crippling shockwave of electricity. Mr. Gingrich warns that it would fry electrical circuits from coast to coast, knocking out computers, electrical power and cellphones. Everything from cars to hospitals would be knocked out.

In the introduction to the 2009 novel One Second After, Gingrich said millions would die in the first week alone.

The US military believe that the following three factors should give US citizens peace of mind:

  • The Missile Defense Agency has an arsenal of ground-based interceptors ready to fly into space and smash enemy warheads
  • Iran and North Korea don’t have such weapons yet
  • Terrorists would prefer destruction over disruption

Well, in response I suggest:

  • The Missile Defense Agency hasn’t had much practice, so who knows if they could thwart such an attack
  • Russia and China aren’t exactly best friends of the USA, and who says the target can’t be an American ally?
  • The mindset of the terrorist in charge is not something to be predicted

Imagine if you whispered into the ear of a maniacal Russian or Chinese general, and told them that with the combination of an EMP and a ground-based attack, they could own the USA. I’m sure they’d at least day dream about it.
