Re: Oil leaking everywhere: State of emergency declared as 800,000 gallons of leaked oil begins flowing through Kalamazoo County Quote
Way beyond terrorist deal in Toledo, right Klinger?
Oil spill is a last ditch effort to keep the coming Ice Age at bay
QUESTION: If you knew that an ice age was impending and had the power to do something about it, what steps would you take to prevent it? I figure you would probably pump as much greenhouse gas into the atmosphere as possible.
Step 1 - burn as much fossil fuel as possible to increase CO2 concentration in atmosphere - CHECK
Step 2 - transition from CFCs to hydrofluorocarbons which have higher global warming potential (400-4000 times that of CO2) - CHECK (see [link to www.sciencedirect.com] and [link to elib.dlr.de]
Step 3 - release potent greenhouse gases such as SF5CF3 (19,000 times the global warming potential of CO2) into atmosphere - CHECK (see [link to www.sciencedirect.com] and [link to www.abc.net.au]
Step 4 - release methane stored in the earth (70 times the global warming potential of CO2) into atmosphere. This requires the deliberate destruction of an active drilling operation. If all the methane in the Deepwater Horizon spill (see [link to www.godlikeproductions.com] were released into the atmosphere we would see a 30 ppm, or 2%, increase in methane concentration. VERY SIGNIFICANT, ESPECIALLY GIVEN THE FACT THAT METHANE IS A MUCH MORE POTENT GREENHOUSE GAS THAN CO2
Put the pieces together folks. There is an ice age coming and a tremendous effort is underway to stop it. Collateral damage is irrelevant. What's a few hundred million barrels of oil in 340 billion billion gallons of seawater compared to the devastation caused by an ice age?
