kynningu Danmarks Radio segir:

The film that inconveniently could turn the climate debate upside down.


The Cloud Mystery is a scientific detective story
. It tells how a Danish scientist, Henrik Svensmark, through pioneering experiments in a basement in Copenhagen, solved the mystery of how supernova explosions in our Galaxy and variations in the Sun govern climate changes on the Earth.

Henrik Svensmark has discovered a new kind of aerial chemistry - triggered off by events in our galaxy - that determine the magnitude of clouds in our atmosphere. His discovery introduces a paradigm shift in meteorology. Now we have to re-evaluate the causes of global warming.


A film crew has for 10 years documented how Henrik Svensmark struggles the to find the physical evidence of a celestial climate driver. The film demonstrates that science can be a rough place to be if you are in opposition to the established truth.

The Cloud Mystery is aimed at a wide audience. Astonishing pictures from our Galaxy , the Sun and cloud formations are mixed with spectacular animations to simplify the science. Comments by astronomers, geologists and climate experts will convey their sense of adventure, and give scientific weight to the discoveries presented.

Lars Oxfeldt Mortensen has produced and directed a number of international acclaimed documentaries. He is the winner of numerous awards including CirCom Regional, Monte Carlo and Tl Science.

Er aldingarurinn Eden fundinn Gbekli Tepe? 11.000 ra fornminjar...

gobeklitepe_nov08_2.jpg
Fundist hafa trlega vel varveittar rmlega 11.000 ra gamlar fornminjar Tyrklandi sem hafa valdi byltingu hugmyndum okkar um run menningar. Sumir hafa tengt stainn vi munnmlasgur um Parads, en staurinn kemur heim og saman vi frsagnir Biblunni. Fornminjarnar eru sem sagt fr um 9.000 f.Kr.
Til samanburar eru pramdarnir Giza fr um 2.500 f.Kr. og Stonehenge fr um 3.000 f.Kr. Fornminjarnar Gbekli Tepe eru fr eim tma er sldinni miklu var a ljka, .e. fr steinld ur en menn hfu fundi upp hjli. Hvorki meira n minna en 7.000 rum eldra en pramdarnir! arna hefur vntanlega veri miki hof mijum aldingari, svo a n s arna grurlaust a mestu.
gobeklitepe_nov08_520.jpg
Eiga munnmlasgurnar um aldingarinnn Eden uppruna sinn hr ar sem ur voru snir akrar og mikill grur? Sumir telja a svo geti veri og benda a stasetningin s "rtt". Staurinn er milli fljtanna Efrat og Tgris.
fyrstu Msebk segir um aldingarinn:
"Drottinn Gu plantai aldingar Eden langt austur fr og setti ar manninn, sem hann hafi mynda. Og Drottinn Gu lt spretta af jrinni alls konar tr, girnileg a lta og g af a eta, samt lfsins tr mijum garinum og skilningstr gs og ills."
Sar fylgir nnari stasetning garinum sem tengist fjrum strfljtum:
"Fljt rann fr Eden til a vkva aldingarinn, og aan kvslaist a og var a fjrum strm. Hin fyrsta heitir Pson; hn fellur um allt landi Havla, ar sem gulli fst. Gull ess lands er hreint. ar er bedlat og nyxsteinn nnur strin heitir Ghon. Hn fellur um allt Ksland. rija strin heitir Kddekel (Tgris). Hn fellur fyrir vestan Assru. Fjra strin er Efrat. tk Drottinn Gu manninn og setti hann aldingarinn Eden til a yrkja hann og gta hans...."

Auvita eru etta bara vangaveltur, en getur veri a munnmlasgur um aldingar hafi lifa mann fram af manni um aldir alda? arna var mjg frjsamt og gng matar mean menn stunduu veiar. San reistu menn hof og fluttu saman orp og fru a stunda landbna. Felldu tr og runna til a auveldara vri a yrkja jrina. Uppblstur hfst og Parads var ekki lengur til staar nema munnmlum.
Klaus Schmidt, fornleifafringurinn sem stjrnar uppgreftinum, orai etta eitthva essa lei: "etta er ekki aldingarurinn Eden, en hugsanlega hofi garinum".

Vi uppgrftinn hefur komi ljs a menn hafa lagt sig mlda vinnu fyrir 10.000 rum til a hylja essar minjar me sandi og jarvegi. Hvers vegna? Fjlmargar spurningar hafa vakna og hugsanlega verur eim aldrei svara.
Getur veri a hr hafi veri Parads jarar mean sland var huli saldarjkli og rkoma ng til a vihalda grri og dralfi essum slum? San eftir a sld lauk fr a draga r rkomu, landi ornai upp og grur hvarf? Bloggarunum datt etta ssona hug...
smithsonian_map_gobekli_tepe.jpg

Taki eftir hve myndirnar eru vel gerar og vel varveittar. Svo virist sem hofi hafi veri viljandi grafi sand fyrir 10.000 rum. Hvers vegna vita menn ekki.
gobeklitepe_nov08_6_841198.jpg

Benedikt Benedikz: librarian and Norse scholar

Benedikt Sigurdur Benedikz was born in Reykjavik in 1932, the eldest son of the diplomat and bibliophile Eirikur Benedikz. At the age of 12, when his father was appointed charg daffaires to the newly established Icelandic Legation in London, he moved to England, which remained his home for the rest of his life.

He was educated at Burford Grammar School, Pembroke College Oxford (where he also developed his talent as an operatic tenor) and University College London, where he took his diploma in librarianship in 1956. He was already a formidable linguist, always an asset in a librarian and often in other circumstances, too. His father once sent him round the eastern Mediterranean in a tramp steamer. Obliged to spend a night ashore in Turkey, Benedikz accepted hospitality in the tiny cell of an Orthodox monk, the only language they shared being Latin.

His first post was with Buckinghamshire County Library. In 1959 he was offered two positions one in the chorus at Covent Garden and one in the university library at Durham. He chose the latter and here he met Phyllis Laybourn, also a librarian. They married in 1964, having spent part of their courtship cataloguing the collection of the See of Durham at Auckland Castle. There followed three years in charge of the humanities collections at the New University of Ulster and two teaching bibliography at Leeds Polytechnic. His final move, in 1973, was to the University of Birmingham, as head of special collections, where he remained until his retirement in 1995.

Benedikz was equally at home in a library, lecture room or cathedral cloister. His particular forte was in the field of acquisitions. Thousands of rare books and the papers of Charles Masterman, Oliver Lodge, Oswald Mosley and the Church Mission Society came to Birmingham during his tenure. He nurtured and developed the two star collections the Avon and Chamberlain papers maintaining excellent relations with the families who had donated them. He taught bibliography, palaeography and Old Norse, and he was consultant to the cathedral libraries of Lichfield and Worcester and the magnificent library of Bishop Hurd at Hartlebury Castle.

His scholarship was many-sided. He edited On the Novel, a festschrift presented to Walter Allen, in 1971, and published a string of papers on Icelandic history and literature, Byzantine studies, bibliography, modern political papers and medieval manuscripts.

The work that gave him most satisfaction was The Varangians of Byzantium. This book was a revision and substantial rewriting of a Vringja saga by Sigfs Blndal, a history of the Byzantine mercenary regiment that included Norsemen. Blndal had died before its publication in Reykjavik in 1954, which attracted little attention. In 1960 Blndals widow invited Benedikz to produce an English edition. It was published by Cambridge in 1978 and has recently been issued in paperback. For this and other published work the university awarded Benedikz a doctorate in 1979. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society in 1981 and Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1985. In 1999 the University of Nottingham, in acknowledgment of the familys gift of his fathers outstanding collection of Islandica, made him a member of their College of Benefactors. He became closely involved with Viking studies there and delivered the first of the biennial Fell-Benedikz lectures in 2000.

Genuine eccentrics are fast disappearing from academia but Ben Benedikz was certainly one of them. Before his arrival at Birmingham a colleague remarked of him: Mr Benedikz always strikes me as the sort of person any self-respecting university library ought to have one of. Snatches of grand opera would waft up and down the lift shaft and imitations of Churchill enlivened the reading room. He was a familiar figure every morning in the senior common room, laden with antiquarian book catalogues, picking up on the gossip and keeping the biscuit suppliers in business. A polymath in the tradition of Dr Johnson, whom he resembled both in build and intellect, he had an encyclopaedic knowledge of the most diverse facts. He was a walking Whos Who of theologians, politicians and academics, alive or dead. Cataloguers rarely had to consult reference books, for he could tell them immediately the correct name of a monk on the remote island of Fulda, the author of a long-forgotten Victorian childrens novel or an obscure French dramatist. Occasionally the facts would become tangled. He once memorably confused Virginia Woolfs Orlando with the childrens classic Orlando the Marmalade Cat.

He was not always at home with the more tedious aspects of library management, but his devotion to scholarship was never in doubt.

He is survived by his wife Phyllis, and their son and daughter.

Benedikt Benedikz, librarian and scholar, was born on April 4, 1932. He died on March 25, 2009, aged 76
