Climate Change is real. Global events and a majority of scientists are in synch.
It's getting harder not to believe it. Fierce storms. Once-in-500-year floods. Many more tornados. Worse heat waves. Glaciers melting. Fish moving toward cooler water. Rising sea levels.
What if natural disasters like severe weather volatility, frequency of earthquakes, or activity of volcanos were made worse by more heat energy building up deep in the earth, or passed into the atmosphere? When does the atmosphere become inhospitable?
What if our planet Earth is no longer in balance with the activities and output of mankind?
Even if climate change were to happen in cycles, can we afford to just sit around? How fast is it happening? Can our cities and our nations agree to do what , if anything, is prudent? To wait out a perhaps 100 year or a 10,000 year cycle? Do we have the luxury of Not trying to mitigate some participatory causes, whatever those may be, and to ameliorate some of the effects?
Might a heat transfer analogy (not to explain but to) help understand events? Like a pot of water that comes to a boil? What might happen to energy added overhead, at sea level, or underground? Would there be consequences?
It would have to go somewhere, yes ?
In the meantime, could we use or channel that energy?
Food for thought.
