More on a Lone Sentient Earth:


When did we start to believe in aliens? The existence of life elsewhere in the universe is more unknowing than the existence of God. The existence of God is recorded by those masses who actually experienced His presence over a long History. The existence of life other than Earth is based on theoretical conjecture, individual stories, photographic propaganda, and mathematical probability. 

The stories and photographic evidence, to use a term loosely, are what they are. To have life, the Earth first had to have an environment to support it: the right gases and elements in the right proportions; and the right physical and chemical relationships between the gases and elements. The Earth had to be in a unison with the sun and the rest of the solar system and galaxies to evolve over time into a life-sustaining planet: for it to a have a carbon-based biosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere, the gravity to hold them in, a tilted axis, eccentric orbit, and distance from the sun to form seasons. The probability of this happening elsewhere in Creation may be similar to actually having duplicate fingerprints among the Earth’s population and finding them. Although the estimated number of planets is rather large–a one with 24 zeroes–being able to prove that these even exist may be outside our limits. 

In the mind of Copernicus, Earth did not occupy a special place in the universe, nor did life occupy a special place in Creation. Taken as more than theories by the likes of Sagan, Hawking, and Spielberg, it isn’t hard to believe that extraterrestrial life has taken on a life of it’s own. Copernicus couldn’t see any farther in space and time than anyone else, especially given that only the most rudimentary magnification and measurement technology existed 400 years ago. We still know very little about the universe. 

Not knowing the speciality of either for certain–both are only theories–taken as they are, isn’t it then just as likely that we are alone; that life occupies a special place in Creation; on an Earth that also occupies a special place in the Universe? Yet only one thing’s for certain: life elsewhere has not been found; nor, given the vastness of Creation, is it likely that it will ever be.

Stephen Hawking Says Earth Will Become As Hot As Venus Because Of Donald Trump’s Paris Accord Decision


 

I do feel sorry for Stephen Hawking due to his handicap. But feeling sorry for his handicap does not make him believable, nor does the fact that he is a theoretical physicist; especially the latter. Anyone can come up with a theory; and being a handicapped theoretical physicist does not make him infallible in thought or conviction. Read the article below, then see here for the limitations on Hawking’s theory.

More on the Natural Cycles of Climate Variability


The sources of climate variability are almost beyond measure. “On average,” the Earth is approximately 93 million miles from the sun, varying by 6 million miles over the course of it’s 365.24-day trek around an elliptical orbit. Due to an average Earth tilt of approximately 23 degrees, the Northern Hemisphere is tilted away from the sun at one end of the ellipse’s axis, and the Southern Hemisphere is tilted away from the sun at the other. This is just one of the cycles that controls climate variability and it defines the Earth’s seasons as we know them. Although this is not global climate change, it nonetheless exhibits that very little change in distance or exposure from the sun can cause variability in climate.  

 

Thus, the tilt of the Earth’s axis is responsible for one cycle of climate variability that has a period of approximately 90 days (the seasons). Because the tilt adjusts between 22.1 and 24.5 degrees, it is responsible for another cycle of climate variability that has a period of approximately 41,000 years. It is currently moving toward a lower tilt. With that comes a trend towards warmer winters, cooler summers, and global cooling, eventually bringing the next ice age.

There are other cycles of climate variability with longer periods, caused by variations in the eccentricity of the Earth’s orbit, that result from the gravitational pull of Jupiter and Saturn. The periods of these cycles range from approximately 100,000 to 400,000 years. There are also other cycles with shorter periods, ranging from 7 years to 60 years, caused by Earth’s wobble, sunspot cycles, lunar cycles, and volcanic cycles, to name a few. 

Understandable then, that there were colder times in Earth’s history that occurred approximately 400 years ago, 1000 years ago, 1250 years ago, 3700 years ago, 25000 years ago, 140000 years ago, 225000 years ago, 260000 years ago, and 330000 years ago. And the warmer periods in between attained temperatures and CO2 levels much like those we are experiencing now. 

In short, we are overdue for the next ice age.

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.
