I came across this site before, but until recently it was a subscription fee site/newsletter. Access is now freehi5.gif to both newsletter & archive.


Quote:This newsletter was initiated on the basis of discussion at the symposium “Alternative Theories to Plate Tectonics” held at the 30th International Geological Congress in Beijing in August 1996. The name is taken from an earlier symposium held in association with 28th International Geological Congress in Washington, D. C. in 1989.
Aims include:

1. Forming an organizational focus for creative ideas not fitting readily within the scope of Plate Tectonics.

2. Forming the basis for the reproduction and publication of such work, especially where there has been censorship or discrimination.

3. Forum for discussion of such ideas and work which has been inhibited in existing channels. This should cover a very wide scope from such aspects as the effect of the rotation of the earth and planetary and galactic effects, major theories of development of the earth, lineaments, interpretation of earthquake data, major times of tectonic and biological change, and so on.

4. Organization of symposia, meetings and conferences.

5.Tabulation and support in case of censorship, discrimination or victimization.

Since the establishment of the NCGT group in 1996 we have documented a vast amount of hard data from many corners of the globe and compared them with the deep Earth structures obtained by geophysical methods, such as tomographic images, in our own platform – NCGT Newsletter. Some of the major achievements which have far reaching ramifications are: 1) Widespread/prolific occurrence of continental crust in the ocean basins, and 2) Earth’s outer core discharging energy which causes tectonic and magmatic activities at the shallow Earth – including crustal ‘oceanization’. Other than these, many more contributions have been made in the fields of tectono-seismicity relationship and interaction with the Sun and other planets. These achievements have challenged all the very basic tenets of plate tectonic theory which unfortunately still dominates the present-day world geoscientific thought process.

We consider that we have reached a stage where preliminary geodynamic models – alternatives to plate tectonics - can be formulated. Any new model of Earth evolution must explain all prominent geological and geophysical data/phenomena observed at the Earth’s surface and in its interior, and provide ready answers to the pressing issues which the human race faces today – such as global climate, seismic/volcanic disasters, and aspects associated with mineral resources and exploration in deep oceans.

The IGC34 provides us with a timely venue to get together and jointly re-examine accumulated hard evidence, and on its basis to discuss the most plausible geodynamic systems. It is also an ideal opportunity for us to expose our achievements to the world geoscientific communities.

cheers.gif Fascinating! I noticed they are discussing petroleum hydrocarbons could be abiogenic in origin.
I have to admit I'm intrigued by this theory, I'd like to see some solid proof though.
