Default RA/Dec modelling as a systemic failure

The issue of ‘climate change’ where speculative predictions are presented as facts using computer modelling began with the modelling of planetary motions using accurate clocks in the late 17th century or the ‘clockwork solar system’ as it became known. This clockwork system is based on a rotating celestial sphere and looks like this -


You can describe the location of any celestial object such as the Sun, moon and planets pasted on to this spherical framework as they move relative to each other which is why it is so good for predicting the time and dates of astronomical events like transits, lunar/solar eclipses and so on. All current software programs such as Stellarium are based on this calendar based framework.

The problem is that it is totally useless for modelling the motions of the Earth as it tries to bypass cause and effect. The weekday is anchored in the return of the Sun to noon along with the day/night cycle as the planet turns daily but the Royal Society guys in the late 17th century tried to bypass the Sun and appeal to rotation of the stars around Polaris directly and eventually this has become RA/Dec. The ancestors of the flawed clockwork modelling are now wrecking havoc with planetary climate by rigging observations to suit their computer modelling agenda by conveniently morphing the success of short term weather modelling into ‘climate’.

Default RA/Dec modelling as a systemic failure

The problem is not ‘climate change’, the problem is a human systemic one founded on artificial modelling whether with a clock or a computer. The clockwork solar system puts all observations of motions into a rotating celestial sphere so you can describe the Sun’s location to the celestial sphere just the same as you would the planets or the moon as the right ascension/declination modelling doesn’t discriminate what is moving around what, all it does is accurately relate the position of one object to another.


With the arrival of software based on this celestial sphere, the physical descriptions have followed suit so things like the Equinox are now described as the ‘Sun moves South of the celestial equator’ leading to horrifying conclusions by NASA such as a pivoting circle of illumination off the Equator -

The agenda of ‘climate change’ is really a symptom of systemic failure where observations are rigged to suit modelling just as the late 17th century system was rigged thereby destroying the ability to work with the motions of the Earth for cause and effect.
