Lattice’s technical comments regarding: “Half-life strife: Seasons change in the atom's heart,” by
Stuart Clark published in “New Scientist” magazine issue #2891 on November 21, 2012. An extension of the Widom-Larsen theory of LENRs published on Jan. 10, 2012, in a 3-page MS-Word document titled, "New possibilities for developing minimal mass, extremely sensitive, collective many-body, quantum mechanical neutrino 'antennas'," successfully explains the published experimental results of Jenkins and Fischbach with regard to Manganese-54 (Mn-54) and other isotopic decays involving the weak interaction (e.g., beta decays and inner-shell electron captures). This theoretical explanation for the phenomenon involves a rather straightforward application of the Pauli Exclusion Principle to all types of neutrinos, which are fermions (NOT bosons). Changes in nuclear decay rates observed in laboratory samples of beta-decaying isotopes located on earth are caused by local interactions of beta-unstable atoms in samples with varying fluxes of speed-of-light neutrinos emitted from various electroweak processes occurring in the sun's core, in the "carpet" of magnetic flux tubes on its 'surface', and in the organized magnetic structures of energetic solar flares.
