The Dunn Raman Spectroscopy Climate Debate Fallacy

The Dunn Fallacy A persistent fallacy has developed from a group of thinkers as part of a rebuttal to my work, mostly from physicist Michael Dunn, whom I have communicated with extensively on this issue and to whom I give name credit on his claim.  This is a strawman fallacy.  Dunn and others respond to my work (words to the effect): "Blair, there is no Raman effect in the atmosphere that contributes to the greenhouse effect". This is something I have never claimed and never thought of claiming because it is just not true. No one has ever suggested this.  Dunn  and others  have brought this claim into existence in some kind of red herring fallacy, or maybe a special pleading fallacy. Dunn and others are maintaining, saving the status quo, that only the IR-active spectra emit and absorb IR heat radiation and the Raman active modes do not.  I am proposing to radiate pure N2 with infrared heat and measure the temperature change (or not) with the Raman CARS spectrometer. I have b

DESI Challenging My Fractal Cosmology Theory

When I saw this in my feeds on Thursday it stopped me in my tracks (stop the train!!) and has since had me thinking - wow! This is epic. A detailed picture looking halfway across the observable universe. It is not looking good for (my) fractal theory, but it is still early days and they are pulling in the (old) quasars out there. We'll see how looks when they are finished. The survey before this one took us out to around 100 (on the x-axis) and was the scale we/I fractal-ists based our work on. I/we have been predicting larger and larger galaxy structures the further out we look. They don't seem to be there. emm ....or?
