“Orbits and Ice Ages: The History of Climate” (republished by popular demand) – Prof. Dan Britt, UCF Physics

Base upon his calculations, we predicted back in March-April that this Summer is going to be HOT!  Remember our throw-away line from April 10th…

If that keeps up, then the 2019 Summer is looking HOT!”

“Dr. Daniel Britt is the Pegasus Professor of Astronomy and Planetary Sciences at the Department of Physics, University of Central Florida.  He was educated at the University of Washington and Brown University, receiving a Ph.D. from Brown in 1991.  He has served on the science teams of four NASA missions, Mars Pathfinder and Deep Space 1, the New Horizons Mission Science Team for the flyby of the Kuiper Belt asteroid 2014 MU69, and the Lucy Mission Science Team for a series of flybys of asteroids near Jupiter.

“He was the project manager for the camera on Mars Pathfinder and has built hardware for all the NASA Mars landers.  He currently does research on the physical properties and mineralogy of asteroids, comets, the Moon, and Mars under several NASA grants and is the director of the Center for Lunar and Asteroid Surface Science (CLASS), a node of NASA’s Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI).

“He has served as the Chair of the Division for Planetary Sciences of the American Astronomical Society and the Planetary Geology Division of the Geological Society of America. Honors include six (6) NASA Achievement Awards, election as a Fellow of the Meteoritical Society, and an asteroid named after him; 4395 DanBritt.”

This is the complete lecture and presentation with questions at UCF.  The lecture was given at the beginning of 2012.  Why is it significant?

At that time, it was not generally known that anthropomorphic temperature rise was exponential and not linear.  Dr. Dan Britt is the professor at UCF in Physics.  He was an US Air Force officer and ICBM launch specialist.  He is the scholar behind Exolith Lab and regolith simulant soils.  He, like me, is not a climatologist. He is a scientist.

He took all of what have been termed, “the climate-deniers data and information” and incorporated into the anthropocentric sourcing of CO2 emission, quantitatively!  He found, without a single doubt in the data, that nothing compares to humans as the source of Climate Change.  But more!  His predictions from 2012 have held up.

The model fit is r = 0.87, a pretty good fit for just these 4 factors. Compare his dotted line prediction from 2012 to the recorded data in 2015, below.  If that keeps up, then the 2019 Summer is looking HOT!
