Carbon Dioxide: Is it a global, multi-tasking killer
Part 1: Introduction
Does our everyday, common experience with carbon dioxide explain many changes
in our lives? The experience is carbonated beverages like sodapop, beer and
champagne. The experience is based on how carbon dioxide likes water more
than water likes itself. In chemistry, this is called| "hydrophilia" or
water-loving. This is an important "fact" that deniers can drink.
Water can absorb almost 30% of volume in CO2. One watches the CO2 bubble
up and out. An interesting thing that must be kept in mind: If you open a
two-liter bottle of sodapop and let it go flat, the liquid volume does not
noticeably change. How come? The bulk of the CO2 does not become carbonic
acid but instead organizes the otherwise randomly haphazard water molecules
into tight clusters. This clustering is important for understanding global
warming as well as fewer, but more powerful hurricances and sudden violent
storms with frozen hale on a hot summer day.
Rising levels of carbon dioxide are destabilizing all levels of existence
on Planet Earth from basic atmospheric physics to mankind's cognitive capacity.
Escalating, rapid disasters index a hockey-stick curve of CO2's synergistic
acceleration of an existential meltdown of human survival. As such, carbon
dioxide may be the HIV of life on earth, a global multi-tasking killer molecule.
Droughts: Droughts are due to this fact. Increased
atmospheric carbonation soaks up water which dries out land as evidenced
historic and current droughts, i.e., Global Drying begetting Global
Dying. TV weatherheads should not say that dry air is preventing upper
level moisture from precipitating to the ground. Rather, they should say
that human-generated CO2 is soaking up the moisture like a sponge. Ironic
is how this drying, dehydrating and dessicating phenomenon is exacted by
a molecule which when frozen is called dry ice. (1982)
Disappearing Droughts occur when the source of CO2 stops. The Horn
of Africa drought began in 1967. For nine months it
disappeared when upwind Saudi Arabia, which daily burns
off seven billion cubic of natural gas, cut production by 95% during the
OPEC oil embargo of 1973-74. The end of the Dustbowl droughts was due to
reduced burning of natural gas at the wellheads, not better farming techniques.
(Other examples are listed, e.g, 1990s East Coast droughts.) Barring the
El Nino effect, California's drought could end in a few days if it ended
its "Drive for Droughts" mania.
Deluges and floods result from the
"soda bottle shake" of the atmosphere when the carbonation
is saturated and agitated, usually downwind from the CO2 source, e.g.,
California, oil-fields and mega-fires. The atmosphere is a like a battery
with CO2 being the charge atom that stores up water for rapid release--see
Frequency Resonating Quantums(FRQs). Droughts and deluges
destroy the food-chain. They force farmers and families into increasingly
crowded villages and cities from which springs the crime and terrorism now
plaguing humanity. The epidemic of social, economic and political chaos becomes
pandemic. (Please note that El Nino effect is synergistic with the elevated
CO2 carbonation of the atmosphere.) (2000) The damage from megafires is nothing
compared to the downwind flood damage from CO2-H20 saturated air masses dumping
deluges that destroy homes, businesses and infrastructure. Keep in mind how
carbonating water does increase its weight but not its volume as the CO2
is organizes the haphazard water molecules into efficient structures(FRQs).
Oppositely, keep in mind how the height of water in a carbonated beverage
does not change as the CO2 dissociates into the air, leaving a liquid that
weighs less and is flat to the taste buds. Do you understand how rising
CO2 causes increased flooding?
Part 2: CO2 Clusters
Cloaking water is a heretofore unappreciated clue to atmospheric and
climate changes. Can you see carbon dioxide in your drinks? No. Nor can you
see either the transparent clusters of CO2/H2O in the atmosphere. But, in
a very frequent satellite image, one can see when atmospheric CO2 binds and
cloaks water into transparent FRQ clusters: The leading edge of a hurricane.
When formed in mid-ocean, cyclonic systems are nice donuts. Upon encountering
the CO2-generated domes by human activity at or near coastal regions, the
edge disappears. The satellite image shows a donut that has had the landward
side ripped off, but the water and hurricane forces are still present. (2003)
Invisible Clouds: Global Warming from rising CO2 levels is explained
by cloaking water. Readily recognized is how cloudy nights trap heat
while clear nights allow heat
into space. What if the higher moisture is present, but is cloaked as
CO2/H2O clusters? Heat is trapped by cloaky skies, both day and night.
Conversely, the decreasing ratio of clouds to clear sky means that the daily
sunlight reflection into space is less. So, between nightly cloaks and daily
clears, a double warming whammy is wacking Mother Nature. It has been noted
that clouds are higher in the sky, that is, less present in the lower atmosphere.
Since CO2 hugs the ground, CO2 cloaking explains fewer lower clouds at the
lower lattitudes where CO2 sinning is greater. Do you see how the age-old
explanation of cloud coverage traps heat is equally true for cloaked-water
Hurricane for dummies describes how the CO2/H2O love/hate relationship
of hurricanes but magnifies those that do form. Thus, the world sees
fewer, but more devastating cyclonic system. Normally, the US East Coast
seasonally sees five or more hurricanes. In both 2014 and 2015, there was
only one hurricane, each of which was significantly more powerful than the
average hurricane. (2002) We need normal hurricane seasons. Any weatherhead
or news mediac who cheers "no hurricanes" is not looking at the full, long-term
picture: dry wells, famines, riots and revolution. Yes?
Polar Timebomb describes a sequence of earlier, deeper and lengthier
polar blasts as well as more rapidly disappearing polar
ice cap. The CO2-laden jet stream wiggling over the polar regions not only
fuses greater amounts of cold or frozen moisture but, thereby, prevents the
annual replenishment of the polar ice cap. Due to the greater density of
compact CO2/H2O clusters (compared to haphazardly particulated water
of clouds), polar blast travel closer to the equator. When the polar ice
cap is gone, its demised modulation of heatwaves will result in a massive,
unending heatwave that will destroy the foodchain in the Northern Hemisphere
with an ELE--extinction level event--within 18 months. (2006) Do you see
how worsening winter weather is not a rejection of climate change but is
further cause for concern?
Part 3: Atmospheric Dynamics
Fusion/Fission best describes the ying-yang of the CO2/H2O love/hate
relationship. When generated by fossil fuel fools or petrophiliac oil pumpers,
CO2 loves soaking up H2O causing droughts--fusion. When agitated with
sudden dissociation and chain reactions, massive and violent winds are generated
like the splitting of atoms--fission. CO2/H2O
fusion/fission explains increased violent atmospheric
events, e.g., wind shear, micro-bursts. With fission, the previously compact
clusters of 1:34 CO2/H2O molecules initiate a chain reaction in which each
molecule wants its own lebensraum. Reflecting a broader bandwidth
of dissociation factors due to the variations of particles binding the water,
particulated atmospheric water have gentle, gradual precipitation. Oppositely,
CO2/H2O clusters have a narrower precipitation bandwidth which means the
rain and winds are condensed in a smaller area and timeframe. This
can also be called
the Organic Thesis of Atmospheric CO2. (2014) Fission is
why hail occurs on hot days as the dissociating CO2 cluster are an expanding
gas which drops the temperature like the expanding gas in your home or car
air conditioner. Moisture condenses into hail as the temperature drops. Do
you see how CO2 atmospheric dynamics are similar to nuclear fusion/fission?
CO2/Particulate Ratio: Much advertising proclaims clean natural gas
as being better than coal. Such ads are akin to anyone who claims improved
health by removing all the bacteria from your intestinal track. As lower
prices increase usage of both natural gas and automobile gas in conjunction
with closing "dirty" coal plants, the CO2/Particulate ratio in the atmosphere
changes. As the ratio rises so will droughts and deluges rise in frequency
and size. (2015).
Petrophiliacs chanting clean fuel are increasing the
lottery winners of global warming. As said in my original 1982 paper,
"CO2 is a negative cloud seeding agent" (page 7). More CO2 means more droughts
and deluges. Furthermore, the few homes destroyed by massive megafires is
nothing compared to the downwind millions and billions of dollars in destruction
of homes, businesses and infrastructure from CO2-driven deluges. Claims
of clean CO2 is like claims of clean HIV.
Bees Dying, Colony Collapse can be ascribed locally to pesticides
and globally to to CO2's
dessicating hydrophilia. Rising CO2 levels dehydrate
bees causing them to either imitate Syrian migrants or succumb to opportunistic
diseases. One can see this in one's garden: When I mist in the morning, I
have more bees in my garden
Yes, I can see how rising levels of CO2 not only causes farmland droughts
but insect internal dryness by dessication.
Part 4: Human Impact
Evolutionary Bias describes how the less evolved species from their
origins in the
carboniferous period are thriving while more evolve metabolic
systems are suffering. Ragweed, poison ivy, kudzu and bedbugs are zooming
along. Hardwood trees and hard grains are suffering along with bees and bats.
Increased CO2 favors the metabolism most akin to earlier earth environments
of higher CO2 levels. This is seen in the oceans with the invertebrates thriving
and vertebrates decreasing. Evolutionary bias can be seen within the cells
as the ratio of carbohydrates to protein has decreased causing cereal
manufacturers to alter their manufacturing processes to account for less
of the more evolved metabolic molecule. (2003) Rising CO2 levels increase
the impact of mosquitos and viruses: Zika! Yes, maybe ... I hope it is
Ontogeny Recapitulates Phylogeny describes how the individual (ontogeny)
develops from a simple egg to a complex being that basically reflects the
evolutionary journey of the species (phylogeny). Thus, in a human's early
uterous development, it goes through the less evolved stages of specie's
development. The aforementioned evolutionary bias shows up as faster development
of the earlier stages with a lower final maturation level. One can see this
in one's garden as plants mature faster but yield less. Or, one can see in
the earlier onset of human puberty with a lowering of final maturation. Yes,
this may be one of the answers for earlier puberty.
AlphaTrifecta describes the human impact of rising CO2 levels on the
most complex metabolic process on Planet Earth, the human brain. Increased
CO2 levels effect an increase in autism, ADHD, and alzheimers as well as
allergies and asthma from via more primitive pollen/mode plants. Yes,
global warming may also be
global dumbing. (2003)
Part 5(optional): Timistic Analysis: (also see
True cost of fossil fuel)
In principle, we buy a car to save time and money in traveling for needs
If the car breaks down frequently, the car's total, final cost increases.
The car repair costs represents a hidden downwind cost which drives up overall
At a certain point of frequent repairs, the car is like a home purchase with
an initial fixed rate mortgage that balloons up beyond the buyer's income
to pay off the loan.
A cheap car with expensive repairs is like a loan shark who keeps raising
the interest rate so the borrower is forever in debt.
In principle, we buy gasoline to save time. If we walk at 5mph, it will take
12 hours to walk 60 miles. But, at 60mph, we cover the distance in 1 hours.
The gasoline saves 11 hours.
If the purchased fossil fuel causes money-draining droughts, fires, deluges
and floods then the real gasoline costs should include the cost of these
disasters along with food inflation from destroyed farms.
The downwind time costs of gasoline are like a home loan with a ballooning
The purchase price of fossil fuels is a loan downpayment on an adjustable
loan with a non-limited interest rate. The final, total cost is the escalating,
accelerating damage from the climate change caused by our CO2 sinning. Mother
Nature is a loan shark who has no problems fire-bombing, maiming, and killing
humans that make loans they should not make.
The 2015 cheap gas prices initiated the numerous violent deluges that cost
trillions of dollars throughout the world.
Anyone who claims economic reasons for not legislating lifestyle changes
igknows the costly economic destruction wrought by Mother Nature.
A cradle-to-grave analysis of the time-savings of fossil fuels shows we are
globally losing more time/wealth than is being saved. The once positive ratio
of time savings is now an accelerating negative ratio as we have passed the
tipping point. If we have passed the recovery point then it does not matter
what we do, but we should change our lifestyles so that if there is enough
time left that we use it wisely and timely.
A time analysis allows comparing apples to apples across the spectrum
of existence from the bottom to the top.
In summary, carbon dioxide's hydrophilia is the common denominator to a whole
range of disasters on Planet Earth. It is the global, multi-tasking killer
molecule. If we are to reverse the accelerating, synergistic meltdown
of our existence, we must change our lifestyles. This cannot be done without
better politics and economics. Otherwise, the demise of the American middle-class
will presage chaos from which no concerted action can take place. Like the
Syrian refugees, we won't care about climate change as we fight for our next
bite of food and sip of water.
