The decades-old textbook version of Earth science is underlain by generations of models based upon assumptions, such as the assumption of whole-planet melting to explain core formation and the assumption of mantle convection to explain ocean floor topography. For forty years, instead of making assumption-based models, J. Marvin Herndon, Ph.D. has been making discoveries about the Earth that are securely anchored to the properties of matter and publishing them in world-class scientific journals: The consequence has been his recognizing that Earth's early formation as a Jupiter-like gas giant makes it possible to derive virtually all of the geological and geodynamic behavior of our planet, including the origin of mountains characterized by folding, the primary initiation of fjords and submarine canyons, the origin of continents and oceans, ocean floor topography, Earth's internal compositions, its previously unanticipated and potentially variable energy sources, the origin of its magnetic field, the origination of petroleum and natural gas deposits, and the non-anthropogenic basis of atmospheric carbon dioxide content. Furthermore, Herndon reveals the connections between Earth's origin and the basis of similarities and differences of other planets in our Solar System, how stars including our own ignite, and the reason why the multitude of galaxies display just a few prominent patterns of luminous stars. But science is not all this book is about. J. Marvin Herndon reveals how for decades flawed U. S. Government methodologies and practices have been doing what no foreign power or terrorist organization can do: Slowly undermining, corrupting and trivializing science and science education, driving America toward third world status in science, and allowing science to be hijacked by what he terms a malevolent political agenda which poses real threats to the well-being of life on this planet.

This is not the type of book I generally go for it’s a bit technical in Earth Sciences for enjoyable reading. That said, for some reason it jumped off the self at me. I gave it a four and half stars due to the information contained within the book.

If you look past the political agendas J. Marvin Herndon PH.D. provides a well-researched theory of early Earth formation. The current heat source that powers active planets and moons of the solar system. Who knows? All he asks is to keep an open mind.
