EARTH FARTS

Posted on 2010.05.14 at 14:40
Global warming. OK - I think it will take a few decades for the scientist to admit that we have increased seismic and volcanic activity. But it's pretty obvious that it's happening. Why?

Well, no matter if the earth is warming via carbon emissions or from radiation from the sun, it very easy to explain what is happening. This is my take:

Imagine the globe. You have many, many vectors of heat hitting its surface. If they were allowed to pass without resistance through the planet, where would they most converge? I.e., where would the greatest point of heating be? In the CENTRE, of course. That is the tendency. However, there is a time delay - resistance - in those rays of heat actually burrowing down into the centre - so, now where will the place of most heating be? Not at the easy atmospheric surface, but slightly deeper down in the crust. Not extremely deep - yet - but deeper than the surface.  It takes a while for the earth to absorb the heat, from all directions.

That is what science is proving: The greatest heating is "strangely" occuring at the bottom of the oceans. And, by extension, it is reasonable to assume that there is greater heating deeper under the ground as well, (though possibly not as deep as in the oceans).

That's where the magma can get agitated. Ploom! Exploding volcanoes! Warming oil. Slippery plates. And, more importantly: Melting methane.

Vast stores of methane exist under the oceans, and underground - and I mean VAST - but it's mostly FROZEN. Except for now - now it is starting to melt. And turn to gas. Greenhouse gas. Volatile gas. Ergo: More mine disasters. More volcanic eruptions. More BP oil rigs exploding.

This is only the beginning. Weeeeeeeeee!!!

What do we do now?

well, hey - we can't do anything - it's going to get worse...

but let me say: from fighting cfs, from idealism, from responsibility-to-self or honour, i am a great believer of doing all you can no matter what the outcome

and i do think there is a small possibility that things can slow down or reverse if we were to take DRASTIC action - which we are incapable of choosing to do - at least in time

but drastic action is what is needed, and so we may fulfill fate, like ants, by destroying most of our population through massive war - and this, i believe, is very possible. but it is also very possible that the effects of the war itself may increase warming. so anyway, the human race had a fun run...

i'm glad you commented so i can respond: yes, your type is way too small, and i need to increase my monitors brightness a lot so it actually becomes visible. i hope this helps.

and i also almost posted about my dog in this post - but later...

- i also didn't mention deep-sea giant-squid washing ashore cuz it's too warm down there

What sort of drastic action are you suggesting? Mass suicide? Can we leave some of the cool people behind to repopulate and rekindle a society that is close to their planet?

I fixed the font size and color/contrast, I hope. I like to keep things really dark around here, hah.

Noooo, not the giant squids! I once had this really bad trip where I started hallucinating that a giant squid was crushing me in its loving embrace. And I've been strangely enamored with them ever since. Poor squids. This also raises my concerns for all those beloved leafy sea dragons. And the rest of those crazy mer-creatures....

yum - leafy sea dragons!

giant squids are cool and extremely prehistoric - octopi, on the other hand, are smart-asses

(damn - i always find it really difficult to concentrate when i hear someone mowing lawns cuz it might be someone from the ongoing war of the lawns... i get nervous deep down - like a squid...)

mass suicide - no - although i'm sure you've heard that the new world order is trying to extinguish us all - but universal condom use, no more eating meat, massive investment in green energy, transport, science to counter warming, etc... these MIGHT help - mass suicide might not even help - i dunno - maybe aliens have the answer

i keep things dark here too - that a reason why i couldn't read your font - my monitor is pretty dark

i just don't understand that

and you know what - it also pisses me off that so many people never took the time to look into the actual science which has been going on for like 50 years - i mean how can you ignore that

i'm lucky not to live with closed minded people anymore - but i do remember how aggravating it can be - hang on dude!
