Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I can buy that. But then you'd need a new data set to test your hypothesis on. Preferably a reasonably independent data set... Presenting a hypothesis based on a data set, and then using the same data set to make predictions... that strikes me as falling dangerously close to a fishing expedition.

But of course it's possible that I'm applying the standards of physics (where you can almost always just take another data series) to a discipline to which it is not applicable (because we only have one data set - the Earth).
