Retrograde Motion – An Attempt to Explain Something Simple by Making it Complex and Untrue

Retrograde Motion - Theodore Sheldon SumrallOne phenomenon that ancient astronomers had difficulty explaining was the retrograde motion of the planets. Over the course of a single night, a planet will move from East to West across the sky, like any other celestial object near the ecliptic. Most objects in our sky appear to rise somewhere on the Eastern horizon and set somewhere on the Western horizon. The only exceptions are stars near the North celestial pole, that stay above the horizon all the time and appear to make counterclockwise circles around the celestial pole. 

Geothermal Power 101

geothermal 101 - theodore sheldon sumrallA geothermal power plant uses its geothermal activity to generate power. This type of natural energy production is extremely environmentally friendly and used in many geothermal hot spots around the globe.

To harness the energy, deep holes are drilled into the earth (much like when drilling for oil) until a significant geothermal hot spot is found. When the heat source has been discovered, a pipe is attached deep down inside the hole which allows hot steam from deep within the earth’s crust to rise up to the surface.

The Coming Economic Collapse

the coming economic collaspe by Theodore Sheldon SumrallIn his book “THE COMING ECONOMIC COLLAPSE”, Dr. Stephen Leeb predicted that the U.S. economy was standing on the brink of the biggest crisis in its history (which is now here). As the fast-growing economies of China and India pushed global demand for oil beyond production capacity, Americans experienced an energy shortfall far worse than the one in the 1970s. The result has been severe financial hardship for most people and the concept of “Trickle Up Poverty” has been realized.

Renewable Energy and Electric Vehicles

electric vehicle by Theodore Sheldon Sumrall“Why do we not have electric vehicles yet? A 2006 documentary film explores the creation, limited commercialization, and subsequent destruction of the electric vehicle in the United States (specifically the General Motors EV1 of the mid 1990s). The film explores the roles of automobile manufacturers, the oil industry, the US government, the Californian government, batteries, hydrogen vehicles, and consumers in limiting the development and adoption of this technology. Why this recalcitrance on the part of our political leaders? One word describes it all, “”GREED””.
