...The vanity-publishing scammers at SCIRP are onto a good thing with Michael Persinger (whom FSM preserve) of Ontario. They published a first piece of junk science last year, but because the publisher's peer-review process consists of waiting for the cheque to clear, a not-unimportant error slipped through, over-estimating the climate-changing energy available from geomagnetism:
Vares and Persinger state this value as 2.1 x 10¹³ J, which is too small by 12 orders of magnitude
(boldfaceThis error being noted, SCIRP profit from a second junk publication correcting the first (by postulating "recondite mechanisms" to provide the missing energy).
mine caused by changes in the Earth's magnetic field).
I hasten to add that "recondite" is not a variety of piezoelectric mineral. Here is a recondite mechanism, and it is mine. Persinger has previously shown that:
- The Earth's atmosphere is functionally equivalent to the human brain, with lightning activity in one paralleling axonal discharges in the other.
- Our brains emit more ultra-weak biophotons when we visualise illumination.
