Stumbled upon a possibly interesting looking book written by a supposed geologist and engineer that works in the oil industry. It's doubtful that it's nearly close to the gold standard quality that is Jan Lamprecht's book and research, but I thought I'd share (Amazon Link):
I guess what bugs me is that he wrote another book that's entirely unrelated and feels somewhat strange that he would write it. You can see this by looking at a list of his books available for sale.
He does seem to show up on LinkedIn as what he advertises:
He also appears to make interesting and meaningful comments such as this:
Wherein he says in the comments:
The solar “wind” or Birkeland current cannot account for this phenomenon and auroras. It is deflected by the magnetosphere and a fraction that goes through is trapped in the Van Allen’s belt. A tiny fraction can leak and reach upper atmosphere but its energy is too low to excite auroras and cause hurricanes. A study in the European Geosciences Union journal Annales Geophysicae (2013), has found a 'plasmaspheric wind' of ionised particles flowing from INSIDE Earth's atmosphere into the outer magnetosphere. Before, in 1987, Chappell and the RIMS team published a paper describing the polar ion fountain and described the ionosphere as a "fully adequate source of material for the magnetosphere." That means that scientists did not need to look to the solar wind to fill the magnetosphere. Earth, they contended, does a good job of supplying all the materials. In fact, astronomer Edmund Halley, when trying to explain an extraordinary aurora borealis display in 1716; he suggested that it might be due to inherently luminous matter INSIDE the Earth emerging through fissures in the North Pole. In other worlds, Earth is hollow with an inner sun ejecting warmth and plasma trough Earth’s polar openings. https://pwg.gsfc.nasa.gov/istp/news/9812/solar1.html
Of course this is important to note in face of so many people beating the "Birkeland current" drum right now.
He makes another valid observation on another article further augmenting my confidence that he is sincere in his efforts vs just seeking to publish popular topics:
Wherein he comments below:
That's what MSM would say. We are living interesting times. In a geological time frame, Earth has gone through many periods of increased volcanism. These volcanic periods resulted in; major plant and animal extinction events, the end of glacial eras and the dramatic alteration of Earth’s climate. All indications are that Earth is currently experiencing another period of strong volcanic activity which is acting to infuse CO2 into our atmosphere thereby demolishing the validity of the manmade global warming theory or better said scare.
He was interviewed in this Mud Pie production (MudPie Episode #10: Hollow earth with Oliver Milatovic):
