The Link between Dark Matter and the Ice Ages

September 23, 2012

“Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.”
Carl Sagan

I have already explained how a massive dark matter particle orbiting through earth can trigger earthquakes and volcanoes and extreme low pressure weather events along the exit wound and path of the particle.  Depending upon the mass and velocity, this might go on for days, weeks, months or possibly years…

From Wilkepedia:

The Toba supereruption (Youngest Toba Tuff or simply YTT[1]) was a supervolcanic eruption that is believed to have occurred some time between 69,000 and 77,000 years ago at Lake Toba (SumatraIndonesia). It is recognized as one of the Earth‘s largest known eruptions. The related catastrophe hypothesis holds that this event plunged the planet into a 6-to-10-year volcanic winter and possibly an additional 1,000-year cooling episode. This change in temperature is hypothesized to have resulted in the world’s human population being reduced to 10,000 or even a mere 1,000 breeding pairs, creating a bottleneck in human evolution.

The Toba event is the most closely studied supereruption. In 1993, science journalist Ann Gibbons first suggested a link between the eruption and a bottleneck in human evolution. Michael R. Rampino of New York University and Stephen Self of the University of Hawaii at Manoa quickly lent their support to the idea. The theory was further developed in 1998 by Stanley H. Ambrose of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.”

The apparent coincidence of the eruption with the onset of the last glacial period attracted the scientists’ interest. Michael L. Rampino and Stephen Self argued that the eruption caused a “brief, dramatic cooling or ‘volcanic winter'”, which resulted in a global mean surface temperature drop of 3–5 °C and accelerated the glacial transition from warm to cold temperatures of the last glacial cycle.[11] Zielinski showed Greenland ice core evidence for a 1,000-year cool period with low δ18O and increased dust deposition immediately following the eruption. He further suggested that this 1,000-year cool period (stadial) could have been caused by the eruption, and that the longevity of the Toba stratospheric loading may account at least for the first two centuries of the cooling episode.[12]

    absence of evidence is not science

    • There is plenty of evidence: Disruptions in the magnetosphere and ionosphere prior to, during and after earthquakes, ionized air, sonic booms, bird kills, fish kills, ULF orbital frequency and seismic signature, perfectly honed out sinkholes etc. The only evidence that is missing is the murder weapon(particle) itself, which you cannot see and does not stick around on the surface of the earth.
