New Findings on Rapid Orbital Decay Make Global Warming Look Like A Party

Cumulative Effects
By J.B. Ruhl

Move over Global Climate Change--Rapid Orbital Decay (ROD) puts you to shame.

Research to be published in the journal Astronometica next week discusses findings by researchers at the Canadian Solar and Planetary Institute (CANSPI) showing that the Earth's orbital decay rate has spiked in the past 50 years. All planets experience orbital decay, explained CANSPI research team leader Gustaf Housty, but "Earth's is getting out of synch. Basically we're falling into the sun faster than we should be. If this keeps up, we'll reach Maximum Critical Ambient Temperature (MAXCAT), the temperature at which life as we know it on Earth is no longer possible, about two billion years sooner than we should under natural conditions."

Researchers are still debating the cause of ROD, but the prevailing theory is...buildings. That's right, the accumulated effect of buildings, especially when concentrated in cities, has been to put some drag on Earth's rotational speed, which has a negative effect on orbital speed. Also, the weight of buildings has shifted Earth's overall center of balance, which has thrown us off orbit just a bit. But as Housty explained, "you don't have to alter these things much to get some pretty dramatic effects in terms of ROD."

According to Housty's model, if we were to stop erecting any new buildings today, ROD would continue and lead to Earth reaching MAXCAT in about 2.3 billion years, which is way ahead of schedule. If we were to keep erecting buildings at the current pace, however, we'll hit MAXCAT in about 1.2 billion years. Housty observed that "it may not mean much in the next 100 years, but I wouldn't want to be around in a billion years. It's going to get really hot."

Policy makers have responded quickly with ideas for how to reduce ROD. One idea is to require new buildings to purchase height and weight offsets. For example, Mountain Removal Offsets (MRO) would involve removing mountains in major ranges such as the Alps to offset rotational drag. For obvious reasons, China, Switzerland, and Chile are looking into this option. And Weight Balance Offsets (WBO) would involve creating low-lying expanses of heavy materials in strategic locations to counter urban building weight. One possibility is to create vast fields in the Outback and Sahara of spent nuclear waste "pancakes" (uranium is very heavy) encased in lead.

The U.S., a leader in market-based approaches, is proposing that anyone who takes down a tall building could sell Building Removal Credits (BRC) to others. The goal of the BRC program, says State Department spokesman Kevin Feerble, is "No Net Buildings." But the Europeans are arguing for taking us back to the building levels of 1950, which would add another 500,000 years until MAXCAT. EU Transportation Directorate Underdirector Max Von Hop suggested that "it's really not too much to ask that we cut back to 1950 levels to buy future generations another 500,000 years, is it? The U.S. needs to move off the No Net Buildings message soon."

As one might expect, the building industry already is trying to debunk Housty's model. Indeed, Professor Conradi Fiabilite of Itlay's prestigious University of Construction and Physical Sciences argues that Housty's model fails to account accurately for the cooling of the Sun. As he explains, "the problem isn't MAXCAT, it's MINCAT. We're all going to be popsicles in about 1.6 billion years. Look at Mars." But Fiabilite does credit Housty with finding the link between buildings and the Earth's orbit. He envisions us placing huge blocks of heavy material on barges in the oceans and moving them strategically to "steer" Earth between MAXCAT and MINCAT for billions of years. According to him, "someday we'll be orbiting next to Mercury as the Sun is on its last gasps, but we'll be fine. Buildings and floating 'orbital adjustment structures' are going to save us."

Then there's the argument being made by Justin McHatcherty of the Bioevolutionary Research Center in Seattle that none of this is very meaningful. He explains that "under any of these models, ROD is still happening so slowly that we'll naturally evolve to adapt to changing temperature. We'll get much smaller over time, maybe back to prehistoric size, and live in underground cities where the temperature is constant. We'll be much smarter than prehistoric humans, of course, so they'll be nice cities." Overall, therefore, McHatcherty is more concerned about the immediate effects of Global Climate Change, which is likely to happen faster that we can adapt.

Clearly, Housty's research is likely to spark a lot of debate over the next several years, which I will keep covering here. Have a nice day.

This is a serious problem, which must be addressed immediately. In order to balance the weight of excess masonry at ground level in the northern hemisphere, I propose the creation of eighteen large governmental buildings, to be sent into geosynchronous orbits at points above the southern hemisphere. The will be sent into orbit piecemeal and completed by international personnel over the next century. The mass of these castles-in-the-air will, due to their elevation, be sufficient to restore the balance of the earth.

The Truth about Global Warming/ Orbit Decay -The Apocalypse: Page 1 of 7.

My purpose is to gain support for this report. Global warming-the apocalypse can be stopped, with your help. If not stopped the sun’s heat will dominate this planet’s weather, and generate unusual weather patterns, to the point where the only thing to eat will be other people. The real reason for global warming is the earth’s orbit around the sun is decaying, in other words the earth is moving closer to the sun.

The earth is a planet that functions like a machine. Like cars, trucks, aircrafts, or rockets. The earth has a fuel system, an engine system, and exhaust system. A car’s engine system generates torque, an aircraft’s engine systems generates thrust, and the earth’s engine system generates a powerful magnetic field, and the earth’s magnetic field protects all life on this planet, and beneath the oceans.

The earth’s magnetic field keeps the earth at a safe distance from the sun, and the core is the earth’s engine. The earth’s fuel system is referred to as oil wells/ crude oil reservoirs. They are actually self pressurizing fuel cells. Like any machine, if you were to shut off fuel to the engine, the engine will stop operating. The oil company’s crude oil extraction process compromises the earth’s fuel system, and shut off fuel to the earth’s engine (the core), by releasing pressure out of the earth’s fuel system (oil wells). Normally the pressure in a crude oil well/ reservoir is tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of pounds per square inch.

Under normal circumstance the core (the engine) stays at a constant 5000 to 7000 degrees celsius, and that’s hot enough to melt steel, and the pressure in the core is tens of thousands to hundreds of pounds per square inch. The oil is ignited long before it reaches the core, and enters the core as flames. Crude oil a hydrocarbon, and is capable of generating the temperatures in the core. Hydrocarbons are used to melt, and manufacture steel. The higher the temperature in the core, and the stronger the earth’s magnetic field. The cooler the core, the weaker the earth’s magnetic field. The earth’s engine is being fuel starved, and it is slowly cooling. As the core cools the earth’s magnetic field weakens, and the earth is being pulled closer to the sun.

Global Warming has nothing to do with green house gases, holes in the ozone, CFC, R-12 refrigerant, and aerosol propellant, etc. Hydrocarbons such as coal are safe to use. The only way to reverse global warming-the apocalypse is for the oil companies to re-pressurize the earth’s fuel systems. One way this can be accomplished, by igniting the methane gas in the fuel cell (oil/ gas well). The ignited gas will expand, and create the pressure need to force the remaining crude oil (fuel) into the core. This is the real cause for global warming, and the only way it can be reversed. Volcanoes are the earth’s exhaust system.

Volcanoes are designed to rid the core (the earth’s engine) of spent fuel, debris, and they regulate the pressure in the core, which is generated by the combustion, and/ or ignition of crude oil / methane gas. The pressure that’s release from volcanoes are provided by carbon dioxide, nitrogen, sulphur dioxide, carbon monoxide, and the facts are these are all hydrocarbon by-product, including the pressure.
These gases, and the pressure proves beyond a shadow of doubt, hydrocarbons are being burned in the core of this planet, and lots of it. I believe it crude oil, and/ or methane gas are this planet’s fuel source. Green house gases are not responsible for global warming, it goes beyond green house gases. Something is going wrong with the earth itself, and its obit around the sun, it changing, and not for the better.

The earth has shifted on it’s axis by 26 degrees, and is wobbling on it’s axis. The earth is moving away from the moon at 4 centimeters each year. A total of 24 leap seconds have been added to the atomic clock over the decades, because the earth rotation has slowed down. 12 noon use to be the hottest part of the day, now it 3 o’clock in the after noon.

The winters are getting sunny, and warmer from the equator (latitude- zero) to (latitude 29-N, and S), and vice versa. Both polar ice caps are being melted, one at a time, and the oceans are rising. Floods, and tornadoes are developing in winter, from (latitude 29.0 –N) to (latitude 40- N). It’s suppose to be too cold for the development tornadoes in January, and February, and there shouldn’t be enough sun rays, and heat for the green house gas theory to be applicable. The same weather is occurring in the southern hemisphere from (latitude- zero to 40-S) in winter. Nasa scientists say the earth’s magnetic field has developed a breach. It’s getting noticeably hotter every 15 to 20 years. Look at the facts, and due diligence! Most of what I’ve wrote in this last paragraph was written by scientist, geophysicist, geologist, astrophysicist, and can be found on the internet. Global warming, and the apocalypse are one in the same. The earth is in the beginning stages of global warming, the worse has yet to come.

Looks like the article was mis-posted. It was supposed to appear on front page of The Onion, right?
