I finished the book!

And in record time that is - the book was for me extremely engaging, a real page turner! 2 days ago, I was literarily half asleep, looking at the clock how late it is - but couldn´t put the book down - one more chapter just to finish this or that... 😂
Your questions at the end of the chapters were the death for me, made me constantly wanting to read more... 😉

Was a bit lost in chapter about electric discharge. 😅
But in general, I really liked that there is so many references to scientific papers and researchers, so many images and graphs that one can get good picture of the topic being told and follow the links to specific article.
I especially liked that you included mythological side of the Venus and comparison to actual data.

Many things were already familiar to me, because of your articles on SOTT - but there was A LOT more information presented in the book.
With so many sources added in the book, it´s fascinating how this is not general knowledge!
I think it should belong to SHOTW series.

I probably wasn’t paying attention, or I forgot about that after reading the articles on SOTT, but I was really surprised that it took only 6 centuries for Venus to make her passes and stays in solar system. I thought it took more time, so that was an interesting fact.

Great job in collecting and presenting the data, all done with an understandable language and systematic coverage.
Your storytelling is like in pictures, I could put myself to being there in Siberia and see all those events.

Excellent book, excellent research and excellent storytelling!

Epilogue was spectacular and I can´t wait for your next book!

:perfect:

I just finished the book. Great one. I like it. :perfect:
I like the writing style. It is simple and packed with information. Easy to read and understand.

What fascinates me is that you used information and data that are available to everyone today.
The magic in this book is how you connected the dots into a story that can give the reader the general image of how comets play a huge role in planet climate and life. Climate changes, temperature drops, floods, droughts, CO2, and other gases emissions are just a part of the natural cycles. People should know that, and this book describes that in a simple and scientific way. This book exposes the lies and propaganda of the elites today about human-made global warming and greenhouse gas emissions.

The last part about viruses is also very fascinating. It can give us a clue about what is happening today, especially since the Covid madness started. It gives some kind of explanation why the elites are so obsessed with vaccination especially now when we are heading toward completion of another 3600-year cycle.

They want to play gods and interfere with the natural cycles of DNA upgrade, so to say with their own lab-created version of it. As we have seen through the history of this planet, and as you mentioned in your book, each destructive and cataclysmic cycle followed the period when a new species emerged.

Let's just hope that this cycle will bring a new and better reality.

@Pierre, I found a couple of possible errors in the text:

On page 7, the following is written:

Notice, however, that the overall cooling that occurred during the Younger Dryas was not and while some regions like Siberia, Europe, Greenland or Alaska experienced a marked cooling, other regions like Northern America, apart from Alaska, and the ‘Asian’ side of Antarctica experienced a relative warming.

Should "Antarctica" mean "Arctic" instead?

On page 2 the following is written:

Try to imagine the barely imaginable: millions of giant creatures inexplicably flash-frozen overnight.8

In the corresponding footnote 8, the following written:

8Along a 600-mile stretch of the Arctic coast were found more than half a million tons of mammoth tusks. Because the typical tusk weighs 100 pounds, this implies that about 5 million mammoths lived in this small region. See: Mark Krzos (2006), “Frozen Mammoths,” p. 12.

When I calculate the statement, I come up with a much higher number of mammoths. 500,000 Tons = 1,102,311,310.92 Pounds : 200 Pounds = 551,155,655 Mammoths.

Further down on page 2 the following is written:

So, in the following we will try to find explanations about how and why millions of woolly mammoths ended up flash-frozen overnight.

On page 3 the following is written:

To illustrate this point, between 1750 and 1917, trade in mammoth ivory prospered over a wide geographical region, yielding an estimated 96,000 mammoth tusks. 15 It is estimated that about 5 million mammoths lived in just a small portion of northern Siberia.

Then on page 7 the following is written :

Along with the drastic temperature drop, one of the major features of the Younger Dryas is a massive die-off: 35 mammals, among them mastodons, giant beavers, saber-toothed cats, giant sloths and woolly rhinoceroses, and 19 genera of birds, became extinct in a very short time period.3

It is estimated that as many as 40 million animals died in North America alone.37 In total, hundreds of thousands of mammoths were killed.

Am I missing something?

More on Mars
In the article: Did Earth 'Steal' Martian Water? -- Sott.net, there is this map https://www.sott.net/image/s26/537720/large/Valles_Marineris_topographic_m.png of Valles Marineris, page 86 in the book.
From Global Topography of Mars one can see the differences in altitudes quite clearly.

From the same page, there is an image of the whole surface. Some areas appear more crater filled than others:
global_cover.gif
From List of quadrangles on Mars there is Phoenicis Lacus and this Coprates that covers the area of Valles Marineris On these maps and to my eyes what is low above appears as higher, anyway, Phoenicis Lacus shows:
USGS-Mars-MC-17-PhoenicisRegion-mola.png

If one looks at the image above of Phoenicis Lacus and finds Sinai Planum, there is a round structure called Oudemans crater. It has a diameter of 124 km and is near Valles Marineris:
About craters in general, the electrical universe people say some are electrical and some are impact:
Impact Craters vs. Electrical Discharge Craters | Space News
I looked more into the crater formation process, 124 km is a huge distance, if it had to be electrical.
In the middle there is an elevation. An article in Britannica mentions a central peak of uplift as a feature of a complex crater:
1645285088292.png
United States Meteorite Impact Craters - Chapter 7 - Crater morphology - simple and complex craters has a picture that shows both a simple and a complex crater:
Impact_Crater_Morphology.304130046_std.jpg
And this article Understanding the Impact Cratering Process: a Simple Approach - ERNSTSON CLAUDIN IMPACT STRUCTURES - METEORITE CRATERS has this illustration:

This article illustrates the cratering process by shooting a high power air gun pellet into sand and photograph the process with a high speed camera. Interestingly enough, throwing a stone in water shows some of the same features initially. The difference is that since water is a liquid, the initial turbulence settles down, so the surface returns to where it was. Slow motion throwing rock into water
Other article which go more into the physics of the formation are: https://www.lpi.usra.edu/publications/books/CB-954/chapter3.pdf or https://geosci.uchicago.edu/~kite/doc/Melosh_ch_6.pdf or
As I was looking into Mars, I found the axis of rotation is more unstable than that of Earth:
Modern-day Mars experiences cyclical changes in climate and, consequently, ice distribution. Unlike Earth, the obliquity (or tilt) of Mars changes substantially on timescales of hundreds of thousands to millions of years. At present day obliquity of about 25-degree tilt on Mars' rotational axis, ice is present in relatively modest quantities at the north and south poles (top left). This schematic shows that ice builds up near the equator at high obliquities (top right) and the poles grow larger at very low obliquities (bottom) (References: Laskar et al., 2002; Head et al., 2003).

Was Mars more stable before it lost its water?
