Abstract: The 5D Cosmological General Relativity theory developed by Carmeli reproduces all of the results that have been successfully tested for Einstein's 4D theory. However the Carmeli theory because of its fifth dimension, the velocity of the expanding universe, predicts something different for the propagation of gravity waves on cosmological distance scales. This analysis indicates that gravitational radiation may not propagate as an unattenuated wave where effects of the Hubble expansion are felt. In such cases the energy does not travel over very large length scales but is evanescent and dissipated into the surrounding space as heat.
