This paper is to provide notice that all data collected thus far during the last four months continues to support the existence of anomalous time variations, and subsequently, anomalous earth rotational changes. Efforts are now directed towards the detection of an acceleration component (actually, a deceleration). All data collected thus far continues to support the hypothesis of the existence of the slowing of the rate of rotation of the earth.
Readers may wish to refer to the following Carnicom papers previously released addressing earlier considerations of this subject: ’TIME’ (dated July 24, 2003), ’TIME TO START WATCHING TIME’ (dated August 14, 2003), ’TIME, ENERGY and EARTH CHANGES’ (dated August 26, 2003), and ’THE WAISTLINE OF ROTATION’ (dated September 14, 2003).
Basing concern on a hypothesis forwarded to him by an as of now unidentified source, Clifford Carnicom investigates the possibility that the aerosol programs are being used to change the rotational speed of the earth. This hypothesis purports the onset of major geophysical changes and life extinction cycles in the foreseeable and upcoming decades. The impact upon the earth and life from such events is extraordinary and beyond the realm of consideration for many people. A quote by Carl Sagan brings the possibility of the above claims in line with reality: “extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.” The hypothesis that was passed to Carnicom states that there is an attempt to use the aerosols to increase the rotational speed of the earth. Recognition that the onset of heavy aerosol spraying started late 1998 into early 1999, Carnicom chose to look at yearly earth rotational data from the United States Naval Observatory and the International Earth Rotation Service (Atomic time and actual rotational speed of the earth) to ascertain any change in earth rotational speed. Coincidentally, there is an unexpected sustained increase of the earth’s rotation, starting in late 1998/early 1999, when compared to many years of historical record. Whether this change in rotation has been induced artificially will need to be researched and determined. Of significant note here should be that the reader understand that the records of the earth rotation from the United States Naval Observatory and the International Earth Rotation Service were abruptly discontinued to the public.
