Environment of Violence series

Books that challenge geological orthodoxy


1
Environment of Violence: Readings of Cataclysm Cast in Stone
2
Expanding Geospheres: Energy and Mass Transfers from Earth's Interior
Environment of Violence: Readings of Cataclysm Cast in Stone by C. Warren Hunt. The evidence for geologically violent events in the recent and distant past give pause for thought to an observant person. This evidence is before our eyes but remains largely unrecognized - even among professional geologists. This book was written to describe personal observations of these phenomena gathered during the author's fifty years in field geology. Expanding Geospheres: Energy and Mass Transfers from Earth's Interior Editor: C. Warren Hunt; Contributing authors: C. Warren Hunt, L. G. Collins, E. A. Skobelin. Growth of the earth episodically throughout geological time is abundantly evident. The three authors of this book give new spins to many geological phenomena that can better be explained by earth expansion than by existing, widely accepted theories, such as plate tectonics.

The Tectonics of Geoid Changes: Major Deformation and Failure of the Earth's Crust
Hydridic Earth: The New Geology of Our Primordially Hydrogen-Rich Planet by Vladimir N. Larin. In the late sixties the author discovered that hydrogen under pressure mobilizes otherwise rigid crystalline, rock-forming elements. This book explores the profound geological consequences of the phenomenon, essentially creating entirely new geological theory. The Tectonics of Geoid Changes: Major Deformation and Failure of the Earth's Crust: An Alternative to Plate Tectonics by Peter James. Dvelops his geomechanical theory of tectonics on the evidence of paleopoles and paleoclimates, demonstrating that geosyncline development is an equatorial phenomenon.



Polar Publishing proudly presents books that challenge geological orthodoxy with solutions to long-standing enigmas. The writing is aimed at an audience of peers and science-literate laypersons so as to offer serious, new, and detailed insights into a wide range of familiar phenomena. The books offer new earth theory for 21st century geology.

There are four books in the Environment of Violence series, offering a progression of ideas that amount to a new paradigm in geological thinking.

Contents
The evidence for geologically violent events in the recent and distant past give pause for thought to an observant person. This evidence is before our eyes but remains largely unrecognized - even among professional geologists. This book was written to describe personal observations of these phenomena gathered during my fifty years in field geology.

C. Warren Hunt is a professional geologist in petroleum and mining exploration. In this book he attempts to present in language comprehensible to reasonably science-literate laymen a balanced perspective on the many hyper-energy phenomena that have affected our planet.

First, to contrast the two vitally different kinds of violence, exogeny (external to Earth) and endogeny (internal to Earth), he summarizes the former, which is receiving much attention from others, before moving on to the latter, which is largely ignored, despite the fact that thousands are killed every year from earthquakes, volcanism, and floods while no one is reported terminated by strikes from outer space.

Readings of cataclysms of all forms of endogeny are dealt with and interpreted, often with wholly new concepts. The great Cenozoic floods and the consequent canyons and boulderfields of western North America, earthquakes, the Klamath arc, the San Andreas fault, and, most significantly, the inner Earth's probable source of energy. Realizing that an enormous gas source was required to explain a strange volcano in Namibia, Hunt conceived the carbide-hydride theory of energy emanating from the Earth's interior. This theory holds profound implications for all geology and demanded a sequel volume. Expanding Geospheres followed (see accompanying description). References, index, and glossary are provided for the less than expert reader.

Expanding Geospheres:
Energy and Mass Transfers From Earth's Interior

Editor: C. Warren Hunt;
Contributing authors: C. Warren Hunt, L. G. Collins, E. A. Skobelin
Top of page
Contents
Growth of the earth episodically throughout geological time is abundantly evident. The three authors of this book give new spins to many geological phenomena that can better be explained by earth expansion than by existing, widely accepted theories, such as plate tectonics.

In this sequel to Environment of Violence editor Hunt and contributor Collins develop the theory of hydrogen degassing and the mobilization of mass from inner to outer geospheres.

First, Hunt deals with theories that can account for the apparent expansion of the primordial Earth. Then, Collins and Hunt progress to the chemical and petrological consequences of the generation of hydrides from the silicides, especially silicon carbide. The latent energy inherent in these rock-forming minerals is interpreted as the energy of endogeny, a major departure from the current energy attributions for orogeny and continental margin processes [plate tectonics].

Collins explains the origin of granite as transformation of petrologies from mafic to felsic by silicon substitution for heavier metals. Hunt reinterprets the causes of magmatism and volcanism and ascribes earthquakes [referring particularly to the San Andreas fault] to gaseous bursts in the solid mantle and crust. Skobelin provides new theories for volcanic pipes and diamonds. Hunt explains hotspots [e.g. Yellowstone], zeolites, coalification, and quartz sands as consequences of hydrogen-driven endogeny

The highlight of the book for an economic geologist is the enunciation of a new rationale for the origin and deposition of petroleum and metals. These are seen as provenance of deep levels of the planet. Metals as well as carbon, are mobilized by hydrogen as fluids below the surficial crystalline crust. The accumulation of hydrocarbons in oil- and gasfields and the deposition of metals in metal orefields may, thus, be expected to occur within the crystalline crust as well as in the sedimentary cover.

As a consequence of these theories, which were developed during the writing of the two books, the editor, whose career has spanned over fifty years in petroleum and mining exploration, is pursuing the logical consequences of his theory. He has undertaken to drill for oil and metallic minerals beneath the largest petroleum resource known on Earth, the Athahasca bituminous sands of Alberta, Canada. The proof of the theory of carbide/hydride systematics, first enunciated in Environment of Violence and then developed in Expanding Geospheres, should soon he proven if it is really true.

Hydridic Earth:
the New Geology of Our Primordially Hydrogen-rich Planet

by Vladimir N. Larin,
C. Warren Hunt, editor on translation
Top of page
Contents
In the late sixties the author discovered that hydrogen under pressure mobilizes otherwise rigid crystalline, rock-forming elements. This book explores the profound geological consequences of the phenomenon, essentially creating entirely new geological theory. Any serious student of the earth must take into account Vladimir Larin's challenges to orthodoxy.

During the writing of Expanding Geospheres, E.A. Skobelin brought it to the editor's attention that the Russian geologist, V.N. Larin had published a theory of hydrogen degassing in Russian over ten years earlier. On being contacted, Dr. Larin explained that he had worked on the concept from the time he first recognized it in 1968, and that his experiments in high-pressure petrology, geosynclinal folding, and other aspects of hydrogen systematics were ongoing and had provided him with many proofs. Text translation of a new and much expanded text was commissioned by Polar Publishing in Moscow, after which the author and editor collaborated to develop this book, which was first printed in December, 1993.

Starting with first principles, Larin shows that ionization potentials are the only feasible explanation for the distribution of elements and mass in the solar system and that the Earth must have accreted without melting, its core at first being a hydrogen-saturated mixture of elements of the "intermetal" type. Intermetals, which the author has created and studied in the laboratory, are metals that have been phase-changed by injection of "proton gas" [H nuclei] within their electron orbits.

This is new cosmo-chemistry, and it mitigates new geology by introducing entirely new concepts such as metallic composition for the middle and lower mantle, silicate-oxide composition being confined to the upper mantle and crust. A new theory of geosyncline development is proven with laboratory models, resolving old enigmas while [presciently] not conflicting with the geoidal deformation concept of geosyncline development set forth by Peter James in his later book of this series. Larin deals in detail with formation of Earth's crust and with problems of plate tectonics, continental drifting as posited by PT enthusiasts.

Detailed chapters are devoted to seafloor spreading, to evolution of oceans, to rifting, trench development, and to metallogeny of rifts. Oceanic metal anomalies are shown to originate from deep planetary levels, rather than by surficial relocation of metals. Resolution is reached for long-standing paradoxes of isotope dating of the Rb-Sr, Sm-Nd, and U-Pb systems. New concepts of the origin and behavior of planetary magnetic fields and other enigmas related to the geology of the terrestriial planets and the Moon [e.g. mascons] are enunciated.

Every serious student of the Earth should understand the new insights of V.N. Larin as set forth in Hydridic Earth.

The Tectonics of Geoid Changes:
Major Deformation and Failure of the Earth's Crust,
An Alternative to Plate Tectonics

by Peter James

Top of page
Contents
In The Tectonics of Geoid Changes, Peter James develops his geomechanical theory of tectonics on the evidence of paleopoles and paleoclimates, demonstrating that geosyncline development is an equatorial phenomenon and therefore, a function of geoid wander in aposition to the shifting poles. He avers masterfully a Geology of Stable Continents and Wandering Poles. His model differs from the geophysical approach by taking crustal heterogeneity into account. That is to say, geomechanics (soil and rock mechanics) rather than the elasticity and plasticity of crustal rocks makes new theory from whole cloth, a departure from tradition, an analysis that leads to a fascinating new theory on the evolution of the visible structures on our favorite planet.
