What if Climate Change is occurring? It's getting harder not to believe it. Fierce storms. More heat waves. Glaciers melting. Fish moving toward cooler water.
What if natural disasters like severe weather volatility, earthquakes, once-in-500-year floods, or activity of volcanos were made worse by more energy trapped underground, or passed into the atmosphere?
What if our planet Earth is over-heating?
Even if it were to happen in cycles, can we afford to just sit around? To wait out a perhaps 500 year or a 10,000 year cycle? Not try to mitigate some participatory causes, 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. And with or without a "lid" on it ? Are there more and stronger earthquakes? Bigger hurricanes. Longer dry spells? Rising sea levels?
In the meantime, could we use that energy?
