A broken climate pacemaker?…part 1

In Journal of Creation 31 (1): 88-98, April 2017

The results from the well-known “Pacemaker of the ice ages” paper, which convinced uniformitarian scientists of the validity of Milankovitch climate forcing, are now largely invalid, due to a significant revision in the age of the Brunhes–Matuyama magnetic reversal boundary. Unfortunately, the Blackman–Tukey method used to obtain both the original and new results is somewhat obscure. Because of the important role that Milankovitch theory plays in both geochronology and ‘climate change’ speculation, it would be helpful if there were a simple way that other scientists, and even nonspecialists, could confirm these new results without the need for extensive computation. Here I summarize the results of these new calculations and present a simple conceptual argument that allows others to partially verify these results, using only a pocket calculator or an Excel spreadsheet. This would make an excellent critical thinking exercise for high school or middle school science or mathematics students.
