I liked the quote:

Some related pages seem to suggest that the "dark energy" is
the vacuum energy flux.

"suggests" would be a better word.

I think I've seen this before. But I've yet to see a scientific
article that explains sufficiently how a repulsive force explains
the variation in the CMB. The explanation I usually see for that
is early inflation.

If the CMB and SN results both suggest there is a repulsive force,
that that would be a very interesting result.

If you want links to the more scientific papers (you need subscriptions
to Science and/or Nature to access most of them), see:
