In positioning Velikovsky among catastrophists including Hans Bellamy, Ignatius Donnelly, and Johann Gottlieb Radlof, the British astronomers Victor Clube and Bill Napier noted "... Velikovsky is not so much the first of the new catastrophists ...; he is the last in a line of traditional catastrophists going back to mediaeval times and probably earlier.

I'm also going to include a transcript of a very interesting letter has received from Prof. Victor Clube.

As I have mentioned before, considering the nature of the topic and the obvious efforts to marginalize it, to cover it up and transfer it to the realm of "crazy conspiracy theories" or worse, we had some concern about Professor Victor Clube, author of The Cosmic Winter and the paper addressed to the European Office of Aerospace Research and development, dated June 4, 1996, entitled: The Hazard to Civilization from Fireballs and Comets who seemed to have sort of "disappeared. I wrote in Part Four of this series:
As I have continued to dig into this subject triggered by reading Victor Clube's paper: The Hazard to Civilization from Fireballs and Comets, it sure appears that I have opened a can of worms. I can report two things at this point: 1) there is a lot of covert research going on about this subject; 2) Victor Clube, himself, seems to have disappeared. We've got some researchers digging on that right now and I'll report back later. It could be the guy just retired, but for the moment, it does seem a bit mysterious considering the things he has written on the topic to hand.
It turns out that Victor Clube HAS retired. One of the SOTT editors who is a climate researcher at a major U.S. research facility undertook to try to find Clube and eventually received a FAXed letter from the good professor which I am quoting here in part:
The very fact that the weather has gone berserk, that fireball sightings have increased so dramatically, and even frequent impacts are recorded around the globe, are clues that we are definitely moving into a cosmic dust stream as Clube describes, and that such a stream very likely includes some bigger objects - swarms of them - and those "in the know" have taken note and are making preparations to survive.

Scholars such as Victor Clube, Bill Napier, Mark Bailey, Sir Fred Hoyle and Duncan Steel claim that a more 'active' sky might have caused major cultural changes of Bronze Age civilizations, belief systems and religious rituals."

The newspaper also gave an outline of the extensive work done by Oxford University astrophysicist, Victor Clube, who has been researching a meteor cluster in orbit around Jupiter, which he says:
" ... has collided with the Earth about every 3000 years."
Both Steel and Clube agree about the cosmic origins of the cataclysms that happened around 2350 BC, and The Sunday Times article explained that the meteor which exploded over Siberia in June 1908 had:
3,000 years, as Victor Clube and the 'coherent catastrophists' maintain?

He has authored many books and articles and made numerous appearances on television in the English speaking world. He is known primarily for his work in collaboration with Bill Napier and others on the theory of "coherent catastrophism" and is an expert on comets and cosmology. He now lives in France.

Dr. Victor Clube of the Department of Astrophysics at Oxford University has suggested that the 'megatonnage' explosion resulting from an impact with such celestial objects would produce an immense amount of debris.It could block out the sun for a considerable amount of time, throwing the world back into the Ice Age.But Dr. Clube and his fellow scientists are as concerned about the atomic solution suggestions in some "end of the world" movies, like "Deep Impact" and "Armageddon."Shattering incoming asteroids or comets with nuclear weapons could actually pose a greater danger to earth.Instead of one large threat, we will be faced with a massive amount of space debris that would still throw Earth into darkness on impact.
