Краткий обзор статьи: A scalar-tensor bimetric gravity model of early universe cosmology is reviewed. The metric frame with a variable speed of light (VSL) and a constant speed of gravitational waves is used to describe a Friedmann-Robertson-Walker universe. The Friedmann equations are solved for a radiation dominated equation of state and the power spectrum is predicted to be scale invariant with a scalar mode spectral index $n_s=0.97$. The scalar modes are born in a ground state superhorizon and the fluctuation modes are causally connected by the VSL mechanism. The cosmological constant is equated to zero and there is no significant dependence on the scalar field potential energy. A possible way of distinguishing the metric gravity model from standard inflationary models is discussed.
