Podcast Episode 161: Water on Earth— Coriolis and Tides


Water on the Earth:
Do tides affect you? Does the
Coriolis, too?

Another short main segment, two common misconceptions about water: Coriolis and Tides. The episode was motivated when I recently heard George Noory make the statement, yet again, about, “Since we’re mostly water, and the moon causes tides in water, doesn’t the moon affect us, too?” Or something like that. Add to it some misconceptions I’ve had before about Coriolis, and we have an episode.

I added feedback to this episode, and there’s more feedback that’ll be in the next episode. This is also the episode for the first half of April. One of these days, I’ll get back on schedule.

  2. Good episode. I remember reading an article from a 9/11 Truther Group which took down a claim in one of the versions of the film Loose Change that 9/11 was a robbery cover-up, and they did it in exactly the right way, they went back to the original sources, showed that what the filmmakers were claiming were false but could not be bothered to apply the same rigor to their own claims.
