Climate Change and the Need for Carbon Emissions
Climate Change and the need for carbon emissions.
So here we are "Mankind", we are certainly not being kind to our planet. Humans are so addicted to fossil fuels that the time for reducing emissions has passed us by, we’re just not ready to see it.. Who am I to say such things? How dare I challenge the “Status Quo”?
I am a self-taught science guru who has a passion for climate change. OK…. I just felt a strong wind from all those experts throwing my article across the room! For those of you who are still here, let’s try to understand, that to me, 20 years of studying the writings of climate change scientists and so called “Experts” from around the globe is at least a little credibility. I believe the creative ideas presented here are at least worth a quick read.
So here we go, even if by some miracle we could stop all emissions today our CO2 and methane emissions would continue to heat our planet for many years to come. Let’s face it there is no miracle on the way. What is on the way is that the fossil fuel junkies (now called humans) will not only continue with their “Business as Usual” policies but will keep increasing our CO2 output every year going forward. Here’s a thought, and I have “thoughts” about this subject like Einstein thinks about physics. Every study that is done (supercomputer or not) whether it’s Arctic ice melt, rising ocean temperatures, CO2 in the air or melting permafrost, none of them are done by putting all of these factors together in the same analysis. Oh sure we can use supercomputers to give us a best guess scenario but here is the thing that no one has considered at least publicly, each of these factors listed above has a life of it’s own. Each has constantly changing results and unpredictable feed back loops. Each one functions on it’s own, yet is a key part of the whole. All it will take is one, just one of these feedback loops to be 15%? 25%? 35%? more than the supercomputer predicts and WHAM! nothing left but the crying!
A new approach is necessary, one that thinks going forward in multiple channels, not the current approach that tries to reduce the un-reduceable while excluding two of the largest producers.(China and India) The nice folks that come up with these plans are not only wearing political blinders they are also wearing financial blinders. These distorted views combined together produce what I would call “Climate Drunk Glasses”. Each view blurs the other and confuses the view of climate change that they should be seeing for the good of the planet, our home for the time being. Here is my first attempt at a solution. Humans are able to live underwater for months at a time because submarines and other submerged habitats use “Carbon Scrubbers”. In these cases the oxygen is used by those who live there as well and carbon dioxide is produced. The scrubber cleans the air, like all trees and plants, it takes in CO2 and exhales oxygen.
YES, WE ALREADY HAVE THIS TECHNOLOGY!!!! We just need to develop it for use in the atmosphere. Just think if every commercial plane was outfitted with a carbon scrubber, how effective that could be. It’s not as difficult as it sounds. I saw a show about this once, it was never shown again. I am guessing that someone with those “Climate Drunk Glasses” said “No no no we can’t show a program that challenges the current “reduce emissions” viewpoint”. In that experiment they used a college football stadium and sealed it from the outside world. They built and used their huge machines to remove CO2 and create oxygen. Physically is was a success however financially it was not. If we could re-direct ALL funding to this cause and others like it we could crack the problem in a relatively short time and begin replacing our atmospheric overload of CO2 with usable Oxygen. Here is another possible solution just to throw it out there. In those areas where permafrost is, and will be melting in the near future that is not near civilization, we could cover stadium size sections at a time and accelerate the melting. We could trap CO2 (turning it into oxygen). Then trap the methane and use it for fuel to energize the entire remote project. The trapping is possible now with today’s technology, it’s the atmospheric conversion process that needs to be figured out at soon as possible.
So now the challenges become changing the mindset and direction of the people funding the “dream” or “nightmare” if you will, of reducing emissions.
