I’m going on Irish national radio to help educate the public on some recent weak science reporting

I’ve accepted an invitation to record an interview with Jonathan McCrea from Newstalk Radio in Ireland. Recent research published in Geophysical Research Letters – as interesting as it is – has absolutely nothing to do with the more widely discussed phenomenon known as the Worldwide Hum. Alas, the researchers were lazy, or at least poetic, by using the word “hum” to describe some ultra-low frequency oscillations in the Earth. As a result, there has been an avalanche of reporting that the Earth’s “mystery” and “eerie” hum has finally been recorded.

It hasn’t, and nothing has been solved, at least as far as our project is concerned.

So I’ll go on air and, starting from the beginning, educate the listeners about what we experience and how the recently published research has nothing to do with what they think it does. Note carefully: the French research is serious and completely valid – it’s just that their poor choice of words has confused hundreds of thousands of people about what they actually did.

I’ll announce the broadcast date and time when it is made known to me.

    Newstalk is widely listened to in Ireland. If you remember it do drop the fact that Ireland has hum tone sufferers too. Last night I awoke at 6am and had to get up out of bed for 7am because the hum was too loud and intrusive to go back to sleep.

    All the best with the interview Glen.

    Hi Glen,

    I am new to your site. I landed here recently after being kept awake by a hum here in North Kildare, Ireland. The reason I hit google that night was that I had been hearing a low frequency hum on and off at night for a long time and, convinced that it must be due to some local activity, possibly relating to a manufacturing plant we have in the locality, was eventually driven to hit the internet, thinking others would have reported this same noise in some online forum or the other and that I would find my explanation.

    Imagine my amazement when I discovered that this is a worldwide phenomenon! So, I have some reading of your site to do (along with a registration into your database). But, prior to all of that can I ask you have you appeared on Newstalk yet? This is of particular interest since I am Ireland based.

    Many thanks,
    John
