Catastrophic Flood Events

Just watched a new Nova special investigating similarities between the Washington state scablands, another big wasteland in Iceland and the Cliffs of Dover. That particular media group sometimes produces shows with wild-eyed cosmologists or whatever spouting far-fetched theories of the impossible; but this presentation featured real field scientists and a lot of good hard evidence.

The Missoula, Montana ice dam with it's point and time of failure, computer-modeled forces of hydraulic flows, spectacular film topographies of course and descent plus even the exit channels on the Pacific seabed are all imaged with the best recorders and explained by seasoned experts in their fields. Same for Iceland and the English Channel. ... ew-yq30kc/

Just watched it, typical NOVA stuff. Not a mention of the laminar flow process, no attempt at numerical simulations for rock erosion by water or glaciers, with good reason. Yes, it is difficult to imagine the magnitude of electrical/plasma events that would have been required to produce those landscapes, but easier for me to believe than the flood.
And it is all based on the assumptions that those great glaciers existed and made scratches,grooves or furrows in the bedrock, but all those indicators could well have been produced electrically.
This is another case of mistaken identity I believe:
Glacial Flutes and Iceberg Furrows, Antarctic Peninsula ... -5820-6_18
Ice with a water lubricant between itself and the bedrock does not wear away bedrock. The antarctic was probably the most heavily electrically altered/eroded place on the planet, at scales that boggle the human mind.

In lieu of the Bretz Floods, how would you explain the Willamette Iron Meteorite?

The Willamette Meteorite, officially named Willamette,[3] is an iron-nickel meteorite discovered in the U.S. state of Oregon by Ellis Hughes. It is the largest meteorite found in North America and the sixth largest in the world.[4][5] There was no impact crater at the discovery site; researchers believe the meteorite landed in what is now Canada or Montana, and was transported as a glacial erratic to the Willamette Valley during the Missoula Floods at the end of the last Ice Age (~13,000 years ago).[6] It was long held sacred by indigenous peoples of the Willamette Valley, including the federally recognized Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde Community of Oregon (CTGRC). The indigenous peoples referred to this stone with the name Tomonowos (the visitor from the sky).

When continents break it gets warm on Earth

Rift zones released large amounts of CO2 from depth, which influenced global climate change

The concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere determines whether the Earth is in greenhouse or ice age state. Before humans began to have an impact on the amount of CO2 in the air, it depended solely on the interplay of geological and biological processes, the global carbon cycle. A recent study, headed by the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences in Potsdam, shows that the break-up of continents – also known as rifting – contributed significantly to higher CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere.

There is some big climate summit going on in Germany this week with all the usual billionair suspects present, so the piece is all about the global carbon tax, i mean carbon cycle; but their headline is right. They just conveniently leave out the catastrophic events causing continental crack-ups (probably celestial in origin) and the concurrent tremendous releases of volcanic gases and ashes (probably lasting decades or even centuries), which are many orders of magnitude more potent than silly old CO2 for affecting the thermal cycles of Earth and its ocean regulators,

The acronym GLOF is used for glacier floods caused by the drainage of naturally dammed lakes in the glacier, on or at the margin of glaciers.
Glacial lakes form when a glacier retreats, leaving the debris mass at the end of the glacier – the end moraine – exposed.
The moraine wall can act as a natural dam, trapping the meltwater from the glacier and leading to the formation of a lake. The moraine dams are composed of unconsolidated boulders, gravel, sand, and silt. As with landslide dams,
they can eventually break catastrophically, leading to a glacial lake outburst flood or GLOF...

Glacial lake outburst floods can transport enormous masses like this clast in Nepal of about 200 tones
