I was born in South Africa in 1958. I came to the USA with my wife and three daughters in 2003. We became US citizens in 2009 and 2010. My wife Susan is a Special Education English Teacher. She has a bachelor's degree in Micro anatomy and biochemistry. I have two daughters at university and one in the tech world. I am lucky to be surrounded by such talented women.

I am a vegetarian and enjoy growing trees, vegetables and plants from seed.

My interests lie in astronomy, meteorology, geology and biology.
In astronomy, I am interested in dimensions, the speed of electromagnetic radiation in different density conditions, redshift, magnetism associated with rings of planets and stars, black holes and contracting galaxies and the rotation of the universe.

In September 2010 I presented three new concepts on our Earth, our Sun and the planets and stars that surround us. The American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG) published my ideas on October 4, 2010 on Planetary-Spin heat relationships, Jupiter-Saturn-Solar Tidal-Sunspot coupling and Planetary-Solar alternating magnetic fields. The paper can be found at the AIPG website at:

http://www.aipg.org/Events/2010 Annual Meeting/final papers.htm

In meteorology, my interests lie in long-range hourly weather forecasts through tidal and magnetic forces for both convectional and cyclonic rainfall.

In geology, my interests are in the inorganic origin of oil, gas and coal, under reducing conditions, through hydrogen sulfide and water acting on coal, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide and calcareous formations. My chemical and thermodynamic equations to prove how this occurred have been published.
As a geologist, I delivered two peer reviewed presentations to prove the theory, one to the Association of Engineering and Environmental Geologists in 2008 (AEG).

The other was to The American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG)

These publications include methods of carbon capture that help generate new energy and make carbon dioxide a reusable resource. Understanding fracking by water is when hydrogen is added to carbon through the coal gas, Fischer Tropsch and Wurtz syntheses. Fracking is chemical Cracking and Fractional distillation in situ. It is making oil and gas by adding hydrogen to carbon. It is not hydraulic fracturing of rock.

My other interests are in the driving forces for continental drift, "magnetic rock vortices".

I enjoy growing my own fruit trees and vines and hope to be self-sufficient one day.
I hope that the world will one day all be vegetarians. I believe we can only truly respect ourselves and the other animals if we do not see them as a food source. No human being likes the thought of being eaten by animals. Animals should not be raised as a protein source.

I would like to see the oil, gas and coal being recycled daily, so no carbon dioxide or other pollutants are released into the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide can be reduced back to methane under reducing conditions.
Solar power should be stepped up in a huge way to create clean renewable energy for the world. Desalination of seawater by solar power is the long-term solution to our water needs and our food production. Education to limit global population growth is vital to have sustainable resources for the world and its animals.
I look forward to mutually beneficial relationships that exploit neither party.

Don't Frack the World Fracking is not about worrying about what chemicals they put in. It is about worrying about what the released oil and gas is doing to our health, our children's lives and our lands and crops.Fracking is about drinking oily water, more earthquakes, gas explosions and polluted lands and inedible crops.

Are you a blue sheep or a red sheep? The article descibes the folly of entreching oneself in meaningless camps, not of your own choosing, that are no longer relevant to one's daily life and purpose.

ASTEROID VESTA SHOWS GEOLOGICAL EVIDENCE OF VOLCANISM Asteroid Vesta shows clear evidence through its "planetary dikes" that a hot internal body exists, that drives vocanism today.Radioactive decay is not the source. I believe spin and magnetism are. This has huge implications for terraforming Mars and Venus.

Rigel Well Leaking Near BP-Transocean-Halliburton Gusher by Chris Landau (geologist) By getting as many closed or partly closed wells into immediate production, it will save the time of having to drill new relief wells. This Rigel Well will help reduce the back pressure and save the surrounding formations from disintegrating further. Search the area for other non-producing wells that have been plugged and get them into production.

Five small leaks around BP well ARE a reason to be VERY concerned. Chris Landau (geologist) 5 small leaks are an indication pressure is building for blowouts on the surronding wells and through the sea floor.
