A broken climate pacemaker?—part 2

In Journal of Creation 31 (1): 104-110, April 2017

Recent calculations have shown that the “Pacemaker of the Ice Ages” paper, by Hays, Imbrie, and Shackleton, which convinced many scientists of the seeming validity of Milankovitch climate forcing, is actually largely invalid, even by uniformitarian reckoning, due to a significant revision in the age of the Brunhes–Matuyama magnetic reversal boundary. This article asks the question, can uniformitarian scientists still make a strong argument for Milankovitch climate forcing from other paleoclimatological data sets? Although they can, and indeed often do, make a case from other data sets for some kind of Milankovitch climate forcing, uniformitarian scientists do not agree on the details of the forcing model. In other words, uniformitarian scientists seem unable to reconcile all the paleoclimate data with a single, consistent version of the Milankovitch theory. Hence, the theory is probably much weaker than generally assumed. Implications for geochronology and the debate over ‘global warming’ or ‘climate change’ are also discussed.
