      By the early '70s, James Hansen, a talented man immersed in atmospheric physics, had published several papers on the planet Venus. In fact, he had written his doctorate thesis on the planet. The distant world is surrounded by a thick atmosphere- effectively wrapping it in a blanket of smog, ninety-six percent of which is made up of carbon dioxide. The atmospheric pressure nearest to the surface is equivalent to ninety Earth atmospheres. Venus' surface temperature is four hundred degrees over 740 K. Simply stated, the surface is very hot- hot enough to melt lead. Venus is actually hotter than Mercury despite being nearly twice as far from the sun.

      Why?

      Hansen theorized that the internal heat Venus produces (such as the volcanoes that spew accumulative warmth and basalt into the sky) was a factor for the intense heat. A larger factor is the atmosphere and the runaway greenhouse effect it produces, holding in lingering heat and radiation transmitted from the thermonuclear engine within our Sun. Ultraviolet light (UV rays) is the visible sunlight that pierces the air, radiating and furnishing planets and potentially causing massive environmental damage if left unchecked.

      Sherwood Rowland, American Nobel laureate and a renowned professor of chemistry at the University of California, Irvine, discovered that chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) contribute to ozone depletion. (He was a co-recipient along with Paul Crutzen and Mario Molina.) There are many natural contributors, but man-made chemicals like CFCs push the damage a step past the line of natural recovery. That is to say that the give-off of fossil fuels and inert CFCs used within widely used products like refrigerants and propellants cause an observable, measurable wear-and-tear on an ozone layer- a layer of atmosphere that, on Earth, absorbs ninety-seven to ninety-nine percent of the Sun's dangerous ultraviolet radiation.

      Ozone depletion is directly related to global warming, but it is not the main mechanism. Gases, including those composed of heat-trapping molecules, that are released into the air take time to escape from the atmosphere. The approximate time for methane to leave the atmosphere is one decade. Nitrous oxide takes one century. There are much more potent heat-trapping gases than carbon dioxide (CO2), but it is pouring upwards more than any other. Twenty percent of the heat-absorbing CO2 emissions linger in Earth’s atmosphere for eight hundred years. The current gases that are given off from human industrial efficiency will have an active impact on the climate of the future.

      The photographs of the Earth from space, instilled with the passion of over a century worth of dreams, show how fragile our planet appears against the black backdrop of space. Not from an emotionally-invested, environmentalist standpoint, but from a realistic one. The ocean of air that was expected to envelop our planet was thinner-appearing than anticipated, and comparative planetology confirms that planets can be, in a sense, delicate- including ours. The detrimental atmospheric effects on Earth cannot be immediately cited (or pointed to, if you want to be archaic about it) by a layman because they occur on a molecular scale and over long periods of time. However, the evidence demands that we acknowledge the effects as genuine.

      In 1995, two-thousand five hundred scientists released a report called the Second Assessment of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The report has verified that global warming is a reality, and that human emissions are a leading cause. The knowledge that has been collected, and theories that have been supported, does not render the whole of the issue as lucid or complete. At the time of writing, there are some areas still to be debated upon and ultimately fleshed out. An area in adolescent development, for example, would be the time since discovery to present that has not been lengthy enough to absorb accurate data on the next few centuries to demonstrate the exact intensity of global warming.

      If you are interested in learning more or quad-checking the facts presented here (as I have already triple-checked them), the information is widely available (for free) online. It is an interesting and controversial subject and I recommend that you delve deeper if it piques curiosity.

      To claim that the effects of global warming do not occur on Earth would make one irrational or ignorant if not both. As a conspiracy theory, it is on the same level as believing that President Obama is not a legal citizen of the United States. The 'hoaxes" have no clear purpose. For example, why would a Kenyan or Muslim shadow government breed a man for the sole purpose of becoming a mediocre centrist of a United States President? Why would so many respected and intelligent people connected with the scientific community come to an "incomplete" conclusion and push it into the realm of politics if it is not a real issue that needs to be acknowledged? The rhetorical questions have no clear, rational answers. I do not expect an irrational person to be consistent in their irrationality, but at least a small platform of logical coherency is absolutely required for the opinion to be considered. The world is not black and white, learned scientists and foreign people are not inherently evil, and the blunt facts are unbiased. I suggest that we, both as a species and as individuals, acknowledge those facts.

      I do not suggest, however, that we slam our hands down on a panic button or feel environmental guilt for the industrial strides of mankind. Our planet is delicate (in a sense), but definitely not sacred. As an optimist, I have hopes that the human species will rationally assess this issue and react accordingly, over the next few centuries if not sooner. Until that leap of time, the perceived shady science will have light cast on it many times.

      Merry Christmas, happy holiday, and here is hoping for a progressive new year.

      I plainly disagree. Look at the governments, businesses and educational systems humankind has set up in the past 2000 years. Just because religion still exists doesn't mean humanity as a species is retarded.

    • Selina_Kyle

      9 years ago

      Then I would say you are unique. Because I have never seen someone with no knowledge of their spiritual self. Regardless of how they expresses it.
      It does make me want to investigate if such a person exists. Because what I DO know is in the absence of religion, mankind inevitably make up his own it the form of fable ,mythology, and tradition. It's built in-hardwired, you might say.

    • Selina_Kyle

      Look, I have gone to plenty of churches that were a wrong fit for me. I can't tell you the times where PEOPLE have said or done things that just floored me, leaving me thinking " Is this what it means to be a Christian?How can they act this way and then sit there week after week?"
      If you are being honest with me, then it sounds to me as if you DO know what it feels like to look into that dark place inside just to have nothing looking back at you.

    • Selina_Kyle

      9 years ago

      If I were to guess, I would say you must have a strong and loving family unit. Perhaps you come from a place where "want" hasn't been an issue for you. You may have spent a fair amount of time developing the other aspects of your life: mental,emotional,and physical. Your connection and awareness of the spiritual may not be something you recognize because everything " feels" okay.

    • Selina_Kyle

      9 years ago

      Well, I can tell you that there is a disconnected feeling when I am out of touch with the universal spirit that makes me feel lost and alone. There is a lacking of a sense of purpose and meaning that I should rightfully have. People have been driven to seek money, power, or success, or even to search for the perfect relationship to try and bring happiness and fulfillment into their lives. But, truly those things never quite hit the mark.

    • Selina_Kyle

      9 years ago

      If I am wrong, I haven't lost anything of real value. I've learned to be a better person, to put the welfare of others before myself, and rely on a power greater than myself especially when things go deeply awry.
      If I am right to believe as I do, then what I have gained far surpasses any fleeting moments I may experience in this life. All things turn to dust eventually, all life passes away.

    • Selina_Kyle

      I think I do understand. You don't believe in the immortal soul. You don't believe in a creator, of at least not the one from Jewdeo/Christian history. We are sharing with each other the reasons why we feel the way we do.

      Telepathically, not orally, I mean; like being born with the knowledge of him.

      There are 2 ways that God can do this.
      1. His creation.
      2. dreams, burning bushes, during moments of meditation and prayer some have become that close to Him.

    • Selina_Kyle

      9 years ago

      I was created for the sole purpose of being horrible, etc.; then how is that a fault of mine?

      No, no. You're talking about predestination now.That's not it at all. What we have is a free will. The creator wants you to love him because that's what you really want. He doesn't want a bunch of robots for followers.People chose each moment to either do something beneficial, or to destroy. You yourself say that you know the difference between right and wrong behavior. As do I. So then, why? Why do we as sentient beings make the choice to behave badly?
      Free will

      If he does not expect people to be perfect, can I not be a moral, righteous person without believing in "his way"? I'm not understanding why it's a problem.

      For one, that's selfish and irrational, especially for a creator of all that is. Secondly, if he truly wanted everyone to put him first would he not tell them this mentally? Without a book, for instance? Why doesn't everyone in the world know of him? Is he unwilling to do this? Then he is malevolent to have created and then watched as flawed man tortures himself without intervention. Is he unable? Then he no god.


      1.Yes, you certainly can. For instance Gandhi. Abram before He became Abraham: " Abram believed in the Lord, and He credited it to him as righteousness." Genesis 15:6 This was before the laws were given to Moses, so there was no written or verbal decree at the time for us to go by.
      2.Originally, the Laws WERE all given orally. It wasn't until much later that they were written down.
      Most everyone is hearing about God. Do you really wish for this? Because there is a prophesy that says when all of mankind has heard the words of god, then the end shall come.
      3. He has intervened. Jesus is that very solution.

    • Selina_Kyle

      The jealousy He is talking about is wanting His relationship with us to come before everything else. Like the way a husband who loves his wife doesn't want to share her with other men.

    • Selina_Kyle

      9 years ago

      The purpose is to cleanse the earth. He isn't expecting me to be perfect. He knows that I can't. He does expect me to turn around and go the other way. His way.

    • Selina_Kyle

      9 years ago

      The bible says He is a jealous God, yes.

    • Selina_Kyle

      9 years ago

      I suppose that depends on the reasons why a person has made that choice. Look at it this way: what if there are extenuating circumstances involved? What if the person wasn't raised in an environment where they were ALLOWED to decide freely for them selves? Where every choice was predetermined by the ruling class.
      Would it be just for God to condemn under these types of circumstances? I don't believe so.But then, I'm not God.
      What I do know is this: The creator judges our hearts. " For out of the heart, the mouth speaks"

    • Selina_Kyle

      9 years ago

      I'm saying that the creator of all things knows everything, yes but that I am no more exempt than you or anyone else from guilt.

    • Selina_Kyle

      9 years ago

      I really don't know if you are horrible. No one of us is exempt from crossing some law or code in our lives. Even if we do something illegal, like a traffic violation, there is the counter balance of paying the fine. I do stuff, just like anyone else. I'm no saint of the perfection, nobody is.
      Which is why we needed the Christ. Because WE can't do it.
