I think if idiots like Barack Obama and Al Gore are getting Nobel Prizes, surely we can spare one for somebody who isn't a charlatan who has actually done something.
You read both his books. They're clearly predictive and I'm not just talking about the nanodiamond layer, either. I'd say anyone who articulates a geophysical mechanic that clearly and then we all watch while the guy is absolutely vindicated by developments in the real world, deserves a Nobel Prize many times over.
My son did a research project on Alfred Nobel. We learned a lot about him and his life. The reason he set up the Nobel Prize is to reward people like his brother, who died helping him perfect dynamite. He did not want to give out money to the squeaky wheels or the sorts of guys who push their way to the front of the line. He wanted the Nobel to go to the real deal, the people in the back room who others never credit and never recognize otherwise. The sort of people who produce everything in secret which civilization then steals and pretends they came up with it.
I know for a fact that there are a lot of academics reading his books on the sly, rephrasing his stuff and then getting accolades for their "bold ideas." He's created a new mini-industry of plagiarists. It's time the guy got formal recognition.
