- Global warming controversy This Wikipedia article discusses various aspects, scientific, political, and public opinions, of the global warming controversy, and has an extensive list of references. Global warming is generally regarded by many as due, in part, to mankind's introduction of "greenhouse gases" into the Earth's atmosphere. Alternatively, perhaps mankind's activity is heightened by global warming due to largely natural causes. The effects of the changes in the ocean's absorption of CO2; the counter-effects of the increase in the Earth's albedo (reflection of sunlight from clouds); and the increased level of water vapor (also a greenhouse gas) in the air, as the Earth's temperature rises, do not seem to be adequately considered.
- The Earth's (and other planet's) magnetic field is generally regarded as being driven mainly by the spin of the Earth and electric currents within the conducting magma within the Earth. An alternative, supported by studying other astronomical bodies, could be that that electrical activity driven by the Sun, lightning, and the conducting properties of the ionosphere and oceans on the surface of the spinning Earth are partly or wholly responsible for the Earth's magnetic field. Note that the planet Venus, that rotates much more slowly than the Earth and has no oceans, has a negligible magnetic field.

Mainstream Reference Pages
The following are links to mainstream science and mathematics reference and resource pages, useful for learning modern science and mathematics subject matter as it is usually taught in modern times. Some of these topics are rarely seen, but are not regarded as "alternative science" because they do not challenge the standard models.
- The Standard Model The Standard Model (SM) is the currently regarded, by many, as the best attempt to understand the mathematical basis of particle physics. It is a result of more than 200 years of experimental and theoretical work that has been carefully executed for adherence to consistency of scientific principles in physics. It is not without critics, as all theories should expect. It is also not without unsolved mysteries, and it has been slow (but not completely reticent) to accept radical ideas that require revised interpretations of earlier classical results, as is acknowledged in this Wikipedia article.
