I ran across another idea once that at one time North America and South America were separated by a strait through which a large ocean current flowed.
When Central America rose, cutting off the current, the climate of Africa changed.
According to that particular article, the African climate change was what led to the evolutionary rise of homo sapiens.
Take your lefty lies somewhere else!
Man what an idea you’ve given me! The ultimate cure for global climate change in a “natural way”.
Here is what we can do. We’ll take all the nucs that dumbo has retired and we’ll make whole bunch of cratering charges. Then we’ll take them down to Central America and open the isthmus. We’ll space the charges so that the newly created current will erode the remaining earth thus maximizing the benefit of the nucs. The Pacific Current will be captured and we’ll have velocity jump induced waves in the new Straight of Central America. There will be more-or-less permanent standing waves and the surfing will be outstanding!
El Nino will be broken, the Sahara will become green, we won’t have to hear about feeding Africa. The new circumequitorial current will spread prosperity throughout the globe and peace and prosperity will prevail.
This will work so well others will want to take our lead and complete the project. Israel will be in the way but excavation could go either north or south for those who don’t want to destroy the Holy Land. Only part of Egypt and Yemen would have to be obliterated. Alternately, Syria, Lebanon, part of Iraq and Kuwait could be excavated and the project completed in the straights of Hormuz by removing part of Oman and Yemen. Oil production may be reduced but the hydroelectric power potential would be extraordinary!
Panama, Nicaragua and Costa Rica may have problems with this plan but they could be relocated to the newly arable land in North Africa! It’ll be just magnificent!!!
Illegitimi non carborundum. :’)
That makes more sense than an orbit change.
