Btw - you messed up the quotes in your post.
 Quoting: Hydra

What? Hm, sorry.

If you hadn't an american flag one could think you are the Corean moontard (forgot his screen name).
 Quoting: Hydra

Wanna know the truth? We Brazilians really laugh at that Korean monster and his family, but actually we are not fan of the American way. We do not understand either why they call themselves as Americans because anybody who born in South, Center or North America is American too. But if they like to be known as that, no problem at all...

I agree with HD regarding his professorschip.
Nevertheless you are right in pointing out, that he did not use the title "Professor" in any of his publications or on web pages. On the other hand he never rejected to be named so - at the best this is dishonest (in Germany it would be a criminal offence).
Also there remains the question, who brought it up?
 Quoting: Hydra

Nice question, I really don't know. I have long hair and some people likes to call me "hair". I don't like it, but no problem if they want.

As far as I could research he published onle two papers at Cornell, the two you mentioned (at least a search didn't bring up more results).
Thereafter Cornell (in the early 80s) refused to publish any more papers of McCanny because of his woo-woo theories (translation: bullshit theories) and fired him.
 Quoting: Hydra

Yes, correct. The problem was not with the theoretical work itself, because if you read them you will find out that it is theoretically correct. Understand it: the theoretical work (the model) may be well done, but the observations may not match with the model. So the model could be wrong, but theoretically correct. The problem with the University, as stated by him, is that his model was completely against the official model prepared by own Carl Sagan, the chief of the Astro Institute, his chief. You must consider it as a hard situation for the staff to keep McCanney theories being used and published just where something familiar had been debunked a few years before. No conspiracy needed, only politics.

I'm not familiar with his theories, e.g. his Plasma Discharge Comet Model, (not yet) but what I read so far is utter bullshit.
 Quoting: Hydra

He is doing a special offer with his books in e-format, you could try,

What brings us to C/2012 S1 (ISON).

"i am currently analyzing the orbit of this comet. It appears to have a significant planet sized nucleus ..." Jim McCanney, September 24, 2012
Thus, according to McCanny, the nucleus of C/2012 S1 is at least 2,440 km, the size of the smalles planet in our solar syste - Mercury.
There is a well established empirical formula, established since centuries, to estimate the size of a comet nucleus according to his distance and brightness - verified by several close flybys and visits of space probes to comets.
This formula gives the nucleus of C/2012 S1 as 20 km (source: Remanzacco Observatory).
So what do you think is more likely? A calculation, that works since centuries or the statement of McC?
Keep in mind, that - when the comet approaches - it is possible to distinguish the nucleus from the coma by measurement in different wavelength.
 Quoting: Hydra

Unfortunately this formula works very good only for small comets, not big ones. We only visited small comets so far. This formula consider the light from a comet as being reflected by the Sun, but in McCanney's model the comet is lightning by itself, because it is electric, like a light neon bulb. Like a black body. Big comets have so many light being emanated that this formula would not work. So this formula don't works in this case. As only professional equipment are able to see this comet and he don't have it, consider that he is using his own theoretical work to estimate it. Actually he made some predictions regarding this comet with dates and occurrences, and he matches. All related to weather. He would not hit it right on the nose as he did if the comet is not a large one.

But lets go on.
"there are some really interesting alignments including a new collision with the planet Mars" Jim McCanney, September 28, 2012
Sorry, McC, at that time the orbital elements were already out - indicating, that the distance to Mars would be around 10 million kilometers.
 Quoting: Hydra

Continue reading the same post you paste here and you will see that he is talking about electric alignments and what he call "Action at a Distance", where a comet don't have to get close to the object to affect it due to the electrical alignments. Not direct collision. As I said you must stop doing broken excerpts of texts that are already small.

"this could certainly cause some significant weather effects on mars which could include electrical discharges between the comet and mars" Jim McCanney, September 28, 2012
What did he expect? A 10 million kilometer electric arc?
 Quoting: Hydra

Yes, exactly. He is not sure if it will be eye-naked visible during the encounter next September/October, but that would be good to see.

"there are a number of scenarios depending on the mass of this comet which could rival little mars and could cause changes in both comet and mars orbit" Jim McCanney, September 30, 2012
There is no way a comet can come even close to the mass of mars. There is no way a comet can change the orbit of a planet.
That's pure fearmongering to sell his crap.
 Quoting: Hydra

It is pretty possible *if* the comet is large, and his theoretical work predicts those objects.

"i originally stated on my show that this would not be visible in the morning sky but i revisited my information and in fact we will have a superb night time early morning view of the comet approaching mars" Jim McCanney, October 13, 2012
The closest approach to Mars occures at 2013 Oct. 1.
Brighness of Mars at that day: 1.8 mag
Estimated brighness of C/2012 S1 at that day: 10.4 mag

That means, Mars is about 2000 times brighter than the comet.
And that we can see, according to McC, with the naked eye?
What is he expecting? A firework pointing from the comet to Mars?
I tell you as an amateur astronomer: Even in a decent sized telescope it will be difficult to spot the comet at mag 10.4 - especially not if Mars is also in the field of view and outshines all around it.
 Quoting: Hydra

I *never* see a telescope nor a pair of good binoculars. If you are stating that this comet will not be visible to the naked eyes during this period at night, no problem, I consider you. But remember he consider it as a large comet, so should start being visible sooner.

And this man taught orbital mechanics at Cornell. What did he teach his students? That Mercury and Venus need longer to orbit the sun as Earth?
 Quoting: Hydra

Yeah, he teaches this for two years. But was fired by his ideas. Strange, don't you think?


Will you back away from McCanneys crap when you can not see sparks between Mars and C/2012 S1 around the 1st of October.
Will you back away from McCanneys crap when you even can't see the comet itself with the naked eye?

.
 Quoting: Hydra

I don't know, I pretend to buy astronomical binoculars to see it even if it is just a pretty dirty ice snowball as NASA said.

If you had read the wikipedia article you would know.
 Quoting: Hydra

I did, I read this article long ago.

We are talking about James "the comets gain mass, are as massive as planets, there's a doomsday planet coming that's going to kill us any day now" McCanney, aren't we.
 Quoting: Halcyon Dayz,FCD

Actually he never said that, he said that "a few comets gain mass, a few comets are massive and probably one of them someday will have our name on it.".

So please quote where he said this and reference it.
 Quoting: Hydra

He says that almost every radio show and in all of his books and papers. All the time. Phil Plait lied that McCanney stated that every comet is big and gain mass. Phil Plait should be the guy to quote where McCanney said that, not me.

None of that stuff science.
 Quoting: Halcyon Dayz,FCD

Tell me about science and how it works.
 Quoting: glauco

 Quoting: Hydra

You must be kidding, correct? I'm expecting you to talk about Karl Popper or something more philosophical than that...

But none of these papers are relevant to his woo claims.
Are there any about comets gaining mass?
Are there any about comets being as massive as planets?
Are there any about the Mystery Planet of Doom™?
 Quoting: Halcyon Dayz,FCD

Yes, some of them gain mass.
Yes, some of them are massive as planets.
Yes, one day one could come here in our vicinities. Who knows? If small ones may come, why not big ones?
 Quoting: glauco

Please provide evidence for your claims.
 Quoting: Hydra

Yes, sure, lemme take my spaceship that I let in the garage for repairs then I take some pictures for you, ok?

But none of these papers are relevant to his woo claims.

Can you provide the question to your answer?
 Quoting: Hydra

It is rhetoric.

I guess I cut off all Hydra's head.

The other anamorphic dude will be hardest, I guess, but I will try throwing salt on him.
 Quoting: glauco

Exercise patience.
I'm not on "duty" 24/7 - apart from GLP I have a privat life and a work life.

Well, at least I keep you alert.
