Global Warming in the light of LIGO ….

February 22, 2018


Folks, I am all in favor of our being good stewards of our planet. My support for combating harm to our planet is a motherhood thing. Who does not want to protect our home? I am in favor of doing some of the things man-made global warming proponents want to do anyway, regardless of the science.

But if it is a matter of scientific debate, I have presented a whole new and highly disturbing dimension that must come into it.

The LIGO project is the latest in a half-century long sequence of organized science fraud by the physics establishment. The science and technology involved here are some of the same science and technology involved in climate research, and the scientific methodologies are also similar.

LIGINT: LIGo INTelligence

February 17, 2018


First, two points.

Based on my reading of official investigation of past science frauds, it is standard practice to include relevant non-scientific, circumstantial matters (who entered the lab when, left when – that kind of thing.)

And we all know about how intelligence-gathering agencies analyze chatter – conversations in the airwaves – to gain specific knowledge.

When you put these two together, the work of Demetris Christopoulos would make sense. His reports were in plain public evidence and known to the Nobel Committee for Physics when they decided to award the LIGO Nobel Prize.

The following diagram is based on this report.
