The tired-light interpretation of the cosmological redshift is as old as the discovery of the phenomenon itself, and a number of mechanisms have been proposed by researchers in cosmology. This article presents the basic ideas behind the author?s recent proposal of an inertial induction model consisting of both velocity- and acceleration-dependent terms which can explain the cosmological redshift both quantitatively and qualitatively. A major difficulty with the various tired-light mechanisms is that no other reliable experimental verification of the proposed theories is possible, whereas the velocity-dependent inertial induction gives rise to a number of detectable astrophysical and astronomical phenomena. A few of these have been studied, and it has been shown that the predicted effects do exist.
