January 11, 2018 Zimmerman/Batchelor podcast

For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.


Please consider donating by giving either a one-time contribution or a regular subscription, as outlined in the tip jar below.

You can also support me by buying one of my books, as noted in the boxes interspersed throughout the webpage. And if you buy the books through the ebookit links, I get a larger cut and I get it sooner.

    None of the stories I’ve read on the movement of the north magnetic pole has mentioned the south magnetic pole.

    According to wikipedia the south magnetic pole is moving much slower. 6-9 miles/year vs. 34-37 miles/year. The south magnetic pole also looks to be much further north than the north magnetic pole is south (86 deg N vs. 64 deg S).

    What it all means, who knows!

  • Howard: Thank you for your kind words. Stick around and enjoy the website. I suspect you’ll like it also.
