Something else for Al Gore to worry about (Days are getting shorter? Pole reversal crisis?)

Something else for Al Gore to worry about
December 19, 2008
letter to the editor

I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but I have detected a new crisis that I have named "the daylight change crisis". I first noticed it sometime around the end of June this year. I started paying attention and created computer models and sure enough I was right! We are losing daylight at an astonishing rate. Each day we are losing approximately 2 minutes of day light and my computer models predict total darkness by next July.

I have been able to detect this phenomenon around the entire Northern Hemisphere. And here is the scary part: the day light appears to be leaking to the Southern Hemisphere.

I thought I should bring it to the attention of great scientists like Al Gore so he can help solve this new crisis.

It would be funny to see if we can get this to take off.. create a new meme, time recession.. proof of man destroying the time/space continuum.

I think it can as long as we all say “Klatu Barekto Neckto” together or at least something similar.

That's nothing. Try charting the average daily temperatures and correlate that to your hours of daylight.

Before you know it, the world will freeze solid.

That's nothing. I have proof that every human being begins using virtually no external resources. Then, like clock work, they grow and begin to consume external resources and generate carbon dioxide. Their mass increases exponentially, and they continue to consume natural resources and generate carbon dioxide for approximately 75 years (on average). Then, inexplicably, their consumption ceases.

This needs significant investigation, to be funded by more significant grants and taxes.

I'm way ahead of all of y'all.

I've been working on the daylight loss problem (can't reveal how or with what), and a solution is due in three days, guaranteed.

Keep taking your measurements, and if the days don't start getting longer again by Monday, 12/22, I'll gladly refund whatever money you sent me.

“Oh that's easy to fix, just set the clocks ahead, or change the number of minutes/hours in a day.”

Oh! but it not just the minutes that are leaking into the southern hemisphere, it is the daylight that is going with the minutes. We will be in total darkness and no time left to fix the problems. Can the Southern hemisphere find place to store that much extra sunlight? Will they want to sell it back to us, much like they do now with oil? I'm confused and very concerned. The time leakage will be especially had hit on the children. They will grow old faster in the northern hemisphere than in the southern, requiring them to taken on adult repsonsiblilities before they are ready; you know, at about age 35.

This disturbing decrease in the amount of sunlight is undoubtedly caused by human beings, and their use of vehicles powered by internal combustion engines. I've noticed that the amount of sunlight seems to stay relatively stable throughout most of the day. Then, between the hours of 5 and 6:30 PM each afternoon, there is a marked increase in the number of vehicles on most major roads. At the same time, there is a steady decrease in sunlight, until we find ourselves once again in a state of darkness by early evening. Coincidence? I think not!

Some “Daylight change deniers” claim that even though the days continue to shorten, they are shortening at a decreasing rate, and are expected to actually lengthen in the next few months.

However, the overwhelming scientific consensus is that this is just a short term reversal, and that in six months or so days will resume their shortening. A crash pogrom is required.

Hysterical post.

Thanks. I appreciate it as I observe the fruits of “Global Warming” covering my house, my property, my neighbors property and actually for as far as my eyes can see.

I'll have to get up sometime around Oh Dark Thirty with my anti global warming devices for a bit of strenuous activity before I head over to work and slave over a globally excessive warmed desk.

I hate working Saturdays.

I think you are on to something really important here that I, and others, had not considered before; the relationship to car driving and the loss of sunlight.

So, when we drive our cars, we are causing the loss of sunlight? But, by driving we are causing global warming. therefore, the two should cancel each other out. EXCEPT, driving earlier in the days seems to bring out the sun, thus contributing to global warming. I think we should begin restricting the amount of sunlight in certain areas.

However, until that happens,I am going to write my PHD thesis on this phenomenon. afterward, I will start a foundation, write a book, start a cult. and retire early.

“the over abundance of that toxic liquid dihydrogenoxygen ( nasty lethal killer that it is) we are all doomed.”

You realize, of course, that this toxic liquid is an acid that can dissolve anything on this earth. I may be wrong but I believe that it is the only substance that everything is soluble in. Based upon this knowledge, this substance should be banned. Banned primarily to save the children. Hundreds of children the world over die in this toxic liquid every year.

Not to worry, daylight can be bagged up and used again. It takes a special bag but I just happen to have many of these special bags that will contain daylight. If you run out here you can take the special bag to Australia and return with enough daylight to last for years. Each one of my daylight holding bags will hold enough daylight for 10 years and will cover a 100 square mile area.I can sell you 100 of these bags for the very low sum of $2500.00 bucks per bag. If you buy a 1000 I can cut the price down to $1500 per bag.

I am also selling Daylight credits.

Actually there has been a correlation between rising early and the onset of sunrise. If you set your clock for Precisely 6 Am every day from now until, say, Jan 26, 2009, you will notice a significant increase in the amount of daylight hours, whether or not you drive a car! Try it, it works, and I am giving this advice free of charge.

You're scaring us. This can't be. We need a lot of tax money to study this and even more to solve. Maybe once we produce and consume less some time is gained. What about the simultaneous warming in the southern hemisphere. Oh migh does this mean there will be an inferno down and under. This all doesn't bode well. Maybe we need a brighter than bright person to solve this all, some ... supernatural creature, an IT. Can we produce IT with stem-cell recombination or something. HELP.

“And The Obama will save us. Praise be..”

Just by his election has he saved us. . . By his own statements that history will record the world began to cool(or is that it began to be cool; kind of racist thing?) the oceans began to recede. . .

But he did not say anything about the reverse polarity of the accumulation of negative solar energy, and the loss of time. Praise be to The Obama!

By the way, how are we to address him non-verbally?
Hitler used the one armed raised and extended. Catholics use the shoulder to shoulder to forehead to chest. Maybe we should use the ‘big O’. We could put our hands together, thumb to thumb forefinger to forefinger, but I propose we drop our pants to our bare butts, bend over and spread our cheeks. that would be the proper greeting of The Big O. Jus my opinion, pleas don take offense

Welcome to the web site for the Dihydrogen Monoxide Research Division (DMRD), currently located in Newark, Delaware. The controversy surrounding dihydrogen monoxide has never been more widely debated, and the goal of this site is to provide an unbiased data clearinghouse and a forum for public discussion.

Dihydrogen Monoxide Facts

Dihydrogen monoxide:

* is also known as hydric acid, and is the major component of acid rain.
* contributes to the Greenhouse Effect.
* may cause severe burns.
* contributes to the erosion of our natural landscape.
* accelerates corrosion and rusting of many metals.
* may cause electrical failures and decreased effectiveness of automobile brakes.
* has been found in excised tumors of terminal cancer patients.

You forgot to factor in the amount of light generated by vehicle headlights. I ran it through the computer; the result is that the loss of sunlight is equally balanced
by nighttime headlights. Nothing to fear here.

Something else for Al Gore to worry about (Days are getting shorter? Pole reversal crisis?)

As the original article by Richard Strimple revealed:

I started paying attention and created computer models and sure enough I was right! We are losing daylight at an astonishing rate. Each day we are losing approximately 2 minutes of day light and my computer models predict total darkness by next July.

I'm way ahead of all of y'all.

I've been working on the daylight loss problem (can't reveal how or with what), and a solution is due in three days, guaranteed.

Keep taking your measurements, and if the days don't start getting longer again by Monday, 12/22, I'll gladly refund whatever money you sent me.

OK, folks, since our initial solution in December 2008 (which we have religiously tweaked twice yearly to maintain daylight equilibrium), we here at Bubba-Gump Software® have come up with a semi-permanent solution to the Daylight Change Crisis (DCC). Our semi-annual tests with Daylight Equilibrium Adjustments (DEA) appear to solve both the Daylight Loss Crisis (DLC) over the continental USA, as well as the Perpetual Daylight Problem (PDP) over Australia and other southern nations.

We have prepared both a manual and an automated solution to the problem. Recent research has revealed that even when we become immersed in total 24-hour darkness in the USA, we can load up forty jetliners to fly to Australia or some other southern country for the needed daylight for about 2000 people each trip, for the low, low price of $200 Million per day. Unfortunately, this solution will only benefit the privileged few, and the vast majority of taxpayers will be left in the dark, literally.

Our more cost effective solution provides an automated method for maintaining Daylight Incremental Equilibrium (DIE) for all the people living in the USA, rich and poor, and for those in the southern countries, all for the even lower, lower semi-annual cost of $200 Million.

As with our previous prototype testing, our solution is guaranteed to stop and reverse the Daylight Loss in the continental USA by December 22 each year. Further adjustments will need to be made in the Spring of each year to ensure we don't overshoot into 24-hour Total Damn Daylight (TDD), which would be comparable to the PDP experienced by the Australians, but they won't let us use their labeling system without royalties.

We believe the taxpayers will be grateful for the Assured Reasonable Balance of Daylight and Darkness (ARBDAD), and will happily fork over the maintenance fees for our technical assistance.
