More on the Fossil Fuels Argument:


I’m not going to talk about how the Gores and DiCaprios of the world want to make us feel bad about extracting and using fossil fuels; while at the same time flying around in their fuel-guzzling jets and affording all the luxuries the products of fossil fuels have to offer; while at the same time driving up the prices of those products through the demonization of said fossil fuels. They can afford them.

It might not be a hoax or a conspiracy, but at least, the problem (and the fact) is overblown.
There are approximately 6000 products we make from petroleum and thousands more made from coal that are essential for our life expectancy and advancement as a part of nature and as the only sentient life (we know of) in all of Creation. Some of these products, like insecticides and fertilizers, have helped us to eradicate, or at least stave off, disease and famine. Here is a partial list:

As mentioned previously, there are also many products we can make, and do make, using the byproduct wastes (mainly carbon and CO2) that come from the processing and burning of fossil fuels. See https://www.facebook.com/mymullings/posts/2147608338798813
We are intimately linked to the carbon in our environment. At approximately 18 percent by mass, carbon is the second most abundant element in the human body, after oxygen. The circle of life starts and ends with carbon. See https://www.facebook.com/mymullings/posts/2151999911692989:0

More on the Carbon Dioxide Argument


Please use the menu at the top of the page to access all topics.

Every living thing contributes carbon to the atmosphere, along with earth, water, and atmospheric processes. Humans contribute six percent, including what we would produce if we only ate, eliminated bodily waste, and breathed; and what we generate due to our industriousness. From sources I can cite, that’s less than what an ant mound contributes to its environment. Kinda makes sense though. (Is there an ongoing theme here?).

Carbon dioxide is essential for life. It is the primary source of available carbon for all life. It courses through our veins and respiratory system, though not necessarily in that order. Carbon dioxide uses include carbonation (a preservative), fire control, and refrigeration. It’s a medical gas and a pressurizing gas.

Let’s be realistic. We all want to have and use the conveniences we develop through our ingenuity and technology, all of which carry with them a carbon footprint. The secret is to develop technologies that use the carbon, and move forward with our recycling efforts. There’s no need to rush to judgement on fossil fuels. We need them to develop alternative technologies. And rushing them out too quickly would create economic havoc and political unrest, not necessarily in that order. In fact, that’s already happened.

Everything we do carries with it a carbon footprint. No matter what we do, we’re going to generate more carbon to the environment than “Nature,” insofar as Humans are part of nature. The best we can do is learn to live with that fact and use our ingenuity to capture and use the carbon (e.g., CO2) we generate.

“Like Ants on the Bottom of the Abyss: A Christian Earth Scientist Explains the Concept of Climate Variability with an Eccentric Perspective”

Climate Variability (or Change) as seen from a world view with three points: that the living Earth is the center of Creation, equal to the universe; that humankind is so miniscule in size relative to the size, age, and energy of Creation as to make them incomprehensible; and that, as minuscule as we are, the energy of Creation belongs to us, as stewards, besides our Creator.

The Earth has been cooling since it formed, approximately 4.5 billion years ago. Just 5 million years ago, it was about 40 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than it is now, and it has cooled by as much as 50 degrees Fahrenheit below the current temperature since then, during the ice ages, with spikes of warming in between. That would be equal to a fluctuation in average world temperature from about 100 degrees Fahrenheit then to about -10 degrees Fahrenheit during the ice ages. In the long term the Earth will continue to cool. Climate variability is caused by the rotating Earth “wobbling” on a tilted axis, and revolving around the sun in an imperfect elliptical orbit. This, is by God’s design.

The climate change debate is fueled by the assumption that climate variability can be controlled by man-made changes in planetary dynamics greater than natural atmospheric oscillations, that the use of fossil fuels causes these changes, and that two hundred years of data out of thousands is enough to prove or disprove the destruction of our planet by humans.

That mankind has this kind of influence–as insignificant in space and time as it is compared to the size, age, and energy of creation–is within the shadow of reason and doubt. Yet as the only known survivor of creation and the only known conscious life in the universe, mankind has sole stewardship and the responsibility and duty to harness the energy of the universe, use it to its advantage, and respect it.

The Science of Change


Please use the menu at the top of the page to access all topics. All the change around us is evidence of the nature of our relationship with the universe. Ever notice something about change. It appears to be mainly in a decreasing direction.  And it is. However this is not a doomsday perspective. If the universe started as a Big Bang, its’ energy has been dissipating over time as it expands. This is practically imperceptible to us in scale, owing to the amount of energy stored in the universe. We cannot control this change. Understanding that the energy stored around us from that initial burst is going in that “negative” direction, however, is something we can use to explain the change, and adjust to it, either intentionally, or as a consequence of some other activity. In fact the only control we have over change is our reaction to it and how it affects us; as the only sphere of intelligent existence in the immense expanse of time and space we call the universe, as far as we know.

Keep in mind however that the Big Bang is a theory. The other possibility is that the universe is infinitesimal.

Everything we see is in a State of Entropy. Going from a State of Order to a State of Disorder. Metals corrode. Water evaporates. The biomass ages. The only way to turn either in the opposite direction is to apply energy.  Energy in the form of electrolysis in corrosion; in the form of heat for atmospheric processes; biochemical processes in aging. Although we cannot perceive it on its scale, the amount of energy available for these processes must be dissipating over time. Therefore, energy may not be constant, as once described.

Relative to the size and age of the Universe, our measures “are” infinitessimely small. We know the Universe is expanding. In fact it is one of the few things we can measure precisely: The measurement of the change in the position of objects relative to each other. We can not see the edge of the universe. We can not see that far back in time.

Let’s assume that the universe is truly infinitesimal. Remembering that this measurement is relative to us, that makes the edge of the universe incomprehensible. We measure time, we invented time. Relative to us, time is also infinitesimal. We will never comprehend time. Remember also that we invented the way to measure time and space. Our numerical system, by its design, is infinitesimal. That makes everything we measure potentially infinitesimal. There is always a larger number and always a smaller negative number.

What if the universe is not infinitesimal? What if it is finite?  It therefore has a beginning and end.  This makes everything else we think is infinitesimal also finite; but still exceedingly and incomprehensibly large. The universe has a beginning and an end. Time has a beginning and an end. Energy and matter have beginnings and ends.

How about the opposite direction; toward the infinitessimely small. As we split the atom, is it also possible to split the parts of an atom and so on?  As for time, there is no opposite, or at least, not yet.

Everything is in a state of change; in a seemingly decreasing direction. The universe is expanding; time is increasing; energy is apparently being used up, from a state of maximum flux to a state of decreasing capacity. However, relative to us, this system is infinitessimely large, in every capacity. The fact that it is changing this way is irrelevant and at the same time relevant.

This, again, is not, necessarily, a doomsday perspective. It is not even necessary that we comprehend it completely due to its scale. This change is not necessarily to our detriment, as long as we remember that it is relative to us. It is infinitesimal to us. We are but an infinitessimely small part of it.

It is also our part to manage the forms of energy that make up our environment on this small part of the universe, independently and in unison with change. Much the same as it was our manifest destiny as a civilization to discover and consume the land that extended westward from the cradle of civilization, it is also our responsibility to use energy, in a responsible way, for our technological advancement.

We are the only sphere of existence in the whole expanse of time and space, as far as we know, and we have this responsibility and destiny to do so.

Solutions 

Solution to the Flooding in Louisiana and Fires and Drought in the Southwestern United States:

INTERCONTINENTAL WATER PIPELINE

It’s a bit frustrating that we have all this water over here in southern Louisiana while at the same time, the southwestern U.S. is suffering from drought and ensuing fires. You would think that by now our technologically savvy civilization would have come up with a way to put these together and solve two problems at once.
