Global Warming Needs New Look at Mechanisms Involved
As Europe struggles with another week of sub-zero temperatures-
(Russia and the Ukraine have reported 40 degree temperatures and considerable loss of life)-
recent discoveries have been causing the Greenhouse Gas Gang some additional loss of composure.
Last year, according to the January 14,2006 of New Scientist magazine, environmental engineer Frank Keppler, and his colleagues at the Max Planck Institute discovered that living plants emit a significant portion 10% to 30 % ,depending on the season of the methane a more serious greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide- that makes its way into the atmosphere.
This discovery, which has been confirmed by two other prestigious bodies,means that the Kyoto Accords which call for compensating for carbon dioxide production by planting trees would actually increase global warming significantly if carried out.
A second discovery announced last year in Scientific American -showed that global warming was not beginning at the poles of the earth as climatologists had predicted.
It was discovered the earth oscillates in its rotation , and that this pendulum-like oscillation causes portions of Africa to receive additional solar radiation : producing heat , that is transferred by convective ocean currents to the earths poles.
This effect, called Chandlers Wobble , is believed by some to be the primary cause of earthquakes,global warming, and oceanic currents such as El Nino. A discussion of this phenomenon may be read here:
As a final slap in the face, it has just been announced the amount of sunlight reaching the earth which had showed a pattern of increasing for 15 years has begun to decrease.
More sunlight is being reflected back into space-but the planet is still warming up : reinforcing a growing suspicion that much of the greenhouse gas concept may be in error.
How much warming of the worlds oceans is due to lava flowing up from the earths core ? As far as I know, there is no practical way to measure this factor, and it has pretty much been ignored.
Anyone who thinks this lava flow is minor and inconsequential might wish to study this easy-to-read Cal-tech report on plate tectonics:
Global warming doctrines are being taught and promoted as if they were Holy Writ which, in a sense they seem to have become. Science-combined with Ideology has become a non-scientific hybrid.
Perhaps it is time to nail some new theses to the doors of our scientific cathedral !
The day after I wrote this, I was directed to an article in National Geographic, which discusses a HUGE geothermal plume, found recently in the Indian Ocean.
Emitting heat on the order of a continuous nuclear explosion,this plume may be one of the primary forces behind global warming.
Perhaps its time for the Greehouse Gas Gang to pack it in !
It's been time for the 'greenhouse gang' to pack it in for a long time.
But liberals love power, and the power to put increasing complex demands on businesses and the populace is something they do not want to give up.
I say it's high time that we dismantled the EPA, and a whole host of other alphabets.
Hmmm. You found several things I'd completely missed. Thanks!
Ronald Reagan said this same thing years ago.
Funny, isn't it that the other side of the argument, that it's not real, almost never makes it to the MSM.
Its a glorious 45 ABOVE here in n wisc
The argument is about the greenhouse gas theory.
Funny in a very sad kind of way.
Most of the global warming hypothesis is based upon simulation of the atmosphere. Simulation can become a self-fulfilling process. When on sets out to simulate a process, one tends to put things in the model that are consistent with the theory behind the process. If you believe that global warming exists you model the theories that support the process. If you believe carbon dioxide causes global warming, you put equations in that correleate warming to carbon dioxide and you get global warming.
As a most wise man once said: "Simulation is like masturbation. You do it enough and you begin to think it's better than the real thing."
Good observation !
