He misreads the chart of Full Moon ecliptical longitudes (expressed in astrological format) as though they were ecliptical latitudes. He seems to think the ecliptic is the same as the celestial equator, since he cannot understand how the ecliptic veers toward the south between the autumnal equinox point and the winter solstice point. So he does not realize that a waxing crescent Moon at this time of year appears significantly further toward the south (left) each evening. The current point in the 18.6-year nodal cycle enhances the effect. My lunar webpage contains preview images of the waxing crescent Moon over the next few days: Of course if the Moon actually veered from its predicted course, professional and amateur astronomers all over the world would be trumpeting the fact. That's not to mention that the Moon generates no significant amount of radiation. Unfortunately the survivalist cult will grasp at any flawed straws to spread fear and get folks to buy unnecessary protection.
