Mr. Mick West from metabunk.org made a comment that challenged the integrity of the research carried out in the video: Viewing Brighton Seafront over the sea from Worthing through a Nikon P510 – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MCQM9dCtQ2I
His statement is a deceitful lie – why?… because what he said about the buildings is blatantly not true. I and others have done the measurements, and I invite you to do the same.
I have asked Mr West to take stills of the video, if he hasn’t done already and do the same, as well as provide video showing the temperature measurements he took that day, which would be an important source of data to prove if light was refracting in a downward direction or not.
Mr Mick West has sent me numerous emails, but I am still waiting for the key two points of evidence I have requested, which he must have in order to have made such a statement.
1) The detailed analysis of stills you did from the video footage that clearly show beyond reasonable doubt (to anyone) that the buildings get more vertically compressed as you get closer to the horizon, which is your claimed proof that downward refraction is occurring.
2) A dated video of a range of temperature readings taken at 1 metre intervals between 0 – 15 metres at Worthing and / or Brighton, taken on the evening of Wednesday 23rd October. This will prove the existence of a temperature gradient, that could cause refraction (in a downward direction).
I have requested to receive these two points of evidence by Thursday 13th December.
