Continuing our deep dive into Charles Hapgood's The
Path of the Pole, we discuss the evidence that advances and
retreats of the massive Pleistocene ice sheets in North America and
Europe were apparently in opposition, such that whenever there was
an advance in Europe, for example, there was a retreat of ice in
North America, and vice versa. Hapgood points to this as evidence
that these advances and retreats were not caused by global cooling
or warming, but perhaps they may have been caused by lithosphere
Near the end of the episode we start in on "orogenesis" or the process of mountain building, and the mysteries of how the world's enormous mountain chains came to be.

Below are some excellent images of the fossil human footprints
at White Sands, evidence that humans were in North America ~20ka,
as provided by listener Greenman in an email we read in the last
segment of the show.
