Donald Scott: Is Mysterious South Polar Heating Electrical? | Space News


Welcome to Space News from
the Electric Universe, brought to you by The
Thunderbolts Project™ at A new scientific paper attempts to explain
a mystery at our planet’s South Pole. A team of investigators from
the British Antarctic Survey discovered a localized area where the Antarctic
Ice Sheet is melting surprisingly quickly. Using radar, they found that some of the ice
in a 3 km thick layer appears to be missing. They have proposed that the heat
source causing the melting is “unusually radioactive rocks” combined with unusually hot
water from deep underground. Lead author Dr. Tom Jordan
says of the investigation, “Our results were
quite unexpected, as many people thought this region of
Antarctica was made of ancient and cold rocks, which had little impact
on the ice sheet above. We show that even in the
ancient continental interior, the underlying geology can have a
significant impact on the ice. But a clue to the actual cause of the
anomalous ice melting might be found at the “surprisingly hot poles of other
planets in our solar system.” As we’ve pointed out
in countless episodes, physicist Wal Thornhill made the seemingly
outrageous yet successful prediction that the freezing cold
North Pole of Saturn, which had been deprived of
sunlight for more than a decade, would have a “hot spot” similar to
the one at the planet’s South Pole. In 2007, a surprising warm spot was also
found at the South Pole of Neptune. The Electric Universe
theory has always stated that the Sun is primarily
an electrical phenomenon and electric currents flowing
from the Sun to planets has implications for many
atmospheric phenomena including the tremendous
winds of gas giant planets and also jet streams and
weather patterns on Earth. In recent years, professor Dr. Donald Scott
has developed a model of the structure of a type of electric current
called a ‘Birkeland current’ which can be identified visually
by its unique counter rotation. Critically, this counter rotation has
been seen at the poles of Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune, and in our own planet’s Auroras. Of course, the question
is speculative but we asked Dr. Scott if an
incoming Birkeland current could be the cause of the anomalous
ice melting at the South Pole. It’s always interesting how relatively
often new “surprising discoveries” are being made that might be explained
better by the Electric Universe ideas. Much better than by accepted models
of whatever it is being observed and I’m just sort of amused by the
way that classic standard scientists will lurch and grab on
to whatever is nearby except they never think about looking up
and say gosh, could it be electrical? And so, using radar to look down through
3 km of ice, the British team found that some of the ice covered an area that’s
twice the size of the City of London. Now, this is a pretty big
area, pretty big volume. And that ice appeared to be missing,
there’s a big hole in there. One explanation for the missing
ice, their explanation, was that there may be a radioactive rock deposit
there that is supplying heat from below. Now I guess it’s certainly possible that
there’s a radioactive rock deposit below where the ice has melted but the Antarctic ice pack has
been growing in recent years while the Arctic ice
pack has been shrinking. So if there’s any difference at all
between the Arctic and the Antarctic then it seems as though the
Antarctic is getting colder and that makes the melting of this ice
even more anomalous, I guess. So and the question is, why is there a region deep down under the
southern growing ice pack that’s melting? Well, after, if you think about it a
minute, we know that the polar regions, both north and south
of the Earth, are regions where Birkeland currents
are coming in from the Sun and they impinge down through
the Earth’s magnetosphere. Several years ago, NASA said that the
amount of current was unexpectedly high, somewhere around
650,000 amperes. Now, 650,000 amperes is a lot of, to put
it in the vernacular, a lot of juice. It’s a lot of electric
energy there. Amperes is not energy but it can
produce a great amount of heat. OK, that’s fine but why should that produce
more melting at one pole than at the other? The answer may lie in the fact that
the northern Arctic polar region is a layer of ice floating
on top of a saltwater ocean. And salt water is an excellent electrical
conductor, that’s my main point. Ice is a good conductor and maybe
it’s not quite as good as salt water but it’s a pretty
good conductor. Well, the difference in the
South, in the Antarctic, is that the ice pack is sitting right down
a smack on top of a continent of Earth, Earth’s material. There is a continent down there,
there’s no Southern Ocean. Instead of where the Arctic Ocean
is, there’s an Antarctic continent. And the material that
the Earth is made of is generally not nearly as good an
electrical conductor as salt water or ice. So if you think about what’s
going on, if you consider the path that maybe a Birkeland current
might take as it comes in from the Sun, comes down through the magnetosphere
down vertically into the Earth. And by the way, we’ve got
some very nice video of the counter-rotating currents in the Aurora
Borealis that is certainly supporting evidence that indeed that’s what’s happening
so that Birkeland was quite right. Anyway, if that current comes down through the
snow and ice and then into Earth and rock. Now in the North it flows
through ice and saltwater. Now each of these cases we can think of the
electrical properties of those two layers through which the current flows. Well, the current flows
through one resistor of, if you think of those as
layers as being resistances, and the current and each of
those resistors is the same, the same amount of currents,
the same amount of amperes. The two resistors both have
fairly low resistance values when at the South Pole one of the resistors,
the ice pack, has relatively low resistance. But the earth and the rock is a
very much higher resistance. So just to get technical
for a second, when electrical current flows through
two resistors connected in series, energy is liberated
in each resistor. The expression is familiar to many
people who had physics course. Power equals I²R. The I²R is the amount of electrical power
that’s released in the resistor R. So the current is the
same in both resistors but the resistance of each of
these resistances is different. So the amount of heat, and
this is the punchline, the amount of heat produced
in each of the two resistors depends linearly on their
resistance values. So if the current, same
current flows through, one of the two resistors is the low
resistance and one is a high resistance. The low resistor will not get very
warm but the high resistance one will. And so, Birkeland currents have been
passing down into the Earth for millennia. So is that the cause
of the hotspot? Maybe, but the thing that makes me think
that maybe it might indeed be correct, is that there is the difference
between what happens at the two poles may well be explained by the difference between
the electrical properties of the paths, the two paths that the polar
Birkeland currents have to take. At least it seems like a
more reasonable answer to me than just postulating and groping
around and say, oh my god, what causes it must be a
radioactive rock down there.

    If both poles receive the same amount of power then I propose that the heat generated at the north pole is conducted away by the currents in the Arctic Ocean. This is not happening at the south pole. Secondly, I think that all that power is what actually keeps the earth's core molten.

  2. Tom Falconburg says:

    when gletsjer s move they produce heat on the rock surface that can actually melt the ice.
    volcanoes or geothermal energy can also be the cause.
    did you or scientists look into these options?
    just saying this phenomenon can have more explanations than berkowits currents or nuclear rocks

    from wikipedia:
    Occam's razor is a problem-solving principle attributed to William of Ockham (c. 1287–1347), who was an English Franciscan friar and scholastic philosopher and theologian. The principle can be interpreted as stating Among competing hypotheses, the one with the fewest assumptions should be selected.

    too bad most “consensus science “ has not ever actually done the real thinkythinky part of science and followed occam’s missive to our poor imprisoned minds

  4. Wild Alchemical Spirits says:

    I recently read that solar activity can affect the rate of radioactive decay on Earth and that the sun appears to be communicating with radioactive isotopes. Can anyone into the electric universe theory tell me if this would be due to the nature of plasma and would this impact carbon dating?

  5. billy the dead says:

    It's a giant microwave there right as soon as the ice gets went it all starts to melt

  6. TOMHBOMB1963 says:

    Grand solar minimum effects volcanic activity. There are 3 million undersea volcanoes. Lots under this area losing ice.

    This will fit in with the EU.

    The rest of Antarctica is gaining ice, like the Artic.

    See John Casey's Upheaval book.

  7. Chasing A Murderer says:

    Yes it is somewhat electrical. Oh my gosh I can't watch these videos go use the scientific method and don't make a video until you've done research

  8. Chasing A Murderer says:

    This is the dumbest s*** I've ever heard if you don't understand that there is lava and heat underneath the Arctic then guess what you don't need to be in science

  9. Chasing A Murderer says:

    Okay scratch what I said because you were talking about something different but like I said go back to the scientific method if you don't have solid proof do not talk about it

  10. Midlander NC says:

    No, the Arctic ice is actually recovering in the past few years, especially this year. Even Greenland's ice is net gain.

  11. Midlander NC says:

    I would be interested in Dr Scott's opinion of the the micro Nova theories being discussed recently. Ben Davidson's is excited by the possibilitys but I think it lacks definitive physical evidence on periodicity and causation perhaps a mix of many different mechanisms. I would appreciate Dr Scott's looking into the possibilitys and mechanics of such an occurrence.

  12. Aaron Pitts says:

    How many active volcanoes are on Antarctica?

  13. Erik Schiegg says:

    "650000 amperes is, eh, is a lot of juice!"
    Well said, sir, well said!

  14. linda linacre says:

    But it is only doing it in a localized area.

  15. Thomas A. Anderson says:

    Also northern hemisphere is mainly populated and polluted.

  16. RockManDo KeeperOfTheStones says:

    Lol. Strange heating from underneath. Lol. Like we dont live on a massive chemical reaction we call the core. Changing chemistry below capable of freezing us or literally cooking us with ZERO external inputs. As chemical reactions change and alter through complex pressure, chemical exhaustion and creation. Gas expansion or contraction and of course our extraction and input. Changing volcanic evidences over time suggest a current low volatilty within the cores now ..depletion of reactions. Highly likely all theories regarding universal electrical, global warming , sun …all ignore the clear rock and stone evidence of great periods of internal perturbation and quiessence mostly brought on by internal chemical reactions changing over time right beneath our feet. Explaining anything is pointless waste of time untill we understand earths own chemical and engine…golden earth thread,, we end up barren wasteland as the internal reactions slowly die off….

    Is it a speech defect or a mental defect that makes Mr Scott keep saying Ar tic?

  18. Remko Jerphanion says:

    The melting must have been ongoing for thousands of years, I guess. I don't know if the melting is increasing or not, and perhaps the weakening magnetic field and upcoming pole shift have an effect? Just my 2 cents…
