OUR FATE IS IN OUR HANDS...WE DO CONTRIBUTE TO HER CONDITION
The beauty of Mother Earth is marvelous !
Scholars, poets, scientists, gurus, ministers, laborers, students, ancient scribes, and truth-seekers alike have all testified to the awesome nature of our planet. Climate and weather were obviously designed...by a source of higher wisdom... to generate/sustain life and to nurture our needs.
THERE WAS A TIME WHEN READING THE WEATHER PATTERNS
SEEMED TO BE MUCH SIMPLER....
"When you believe in things that you don't
understand... than you suffer..."
~ from a song by Stevie Wonder
We need to learn some SCIENCE too !!
Because lately our planet seems to have become a 'ball of confusion."
IT IS TIME FOR US TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE
ENVIRONMENT, NATURE AND HOW WE CAN IMPROVE
OUR LIFESTYLES AND HELP SAVE THE PLANET.
STRANGE EVENTS --- wild weather, odd viruses and diseases, wars, terrorism, wanton violence, corruption, and worse...all indicate that something significant is happening for our Planet. There are normal evolutionary changes that have always occurred. But the climate changes that we are experiencing in this century are far more exaggerated. The obvious patterns of wild storms, monster tornadoes, wildfires, droughts, mudslides, hurricanes, blizzards, and extremely dangerous, crazy weather indicate that something significant is afflicting our beautiful planet Earth.
** WHY IS THE WEATHER SO WILD? **
What is going on? * End of the world ? *God's Judgment? * Global warming ?
CONCERNED ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING AND CLIMATE CHANGE?
THE ECO-SYSTEM IS REACTING.
The "Greenhouse Effect" is the natural process that
helps keep our planet warm. However, human activities
have caused too much warming... resulting in bad
effects upon the Eco-System -- such as: wild weather patterns....
THE POLAR CAPS ARE MELTING...DUE
TO THE WARMING CAUSED BY
POLLUTION = GLOBAL WARMING = MELTING POLAR ICE =
RISING SEA LEVELS = FLOODS... and worse !
NASA REPORTS THAT THE PAST DECADE...
2000-2013 were the warmest on record for the past 2,000 years...
WORRIED ABOUT TERRORISM,WAR, AIDS,
UNEMPLOYMENT, POVERTY, DISCRIMINATION,
AND OTHER WORLDLY EVILS?
Believe it or not...NONE of these problems compare to what is happening to
our Planet Earth. Global Warming is a serious threat.
MANY SCIENTISTS AND SCHOLARS HAVE DOCUMENTED THE
GRAVITY OF THE PROBLEM OF OUR WARMING PLANET:
Throughout history, the gurus, prophets, and seers of nearly every culture predicted a time of great upheaval, disasters, and planetary changes. The famous seer Nostradamus also predicted that a time of great calamity would afflict the world, mostly created at the hands of abusive humans.Nostradamus made many predictions about these times which have come true.
We are living in the time of this great change right now!
Politicians and pundits debate about these issues, but the scientific research clearly shows that --
CAUSES OF CLIMATE PROBLEMS....are :
* Acts of destruction of the ECO-SYSTEM -- such as: dumping toxic waste into the land, dropping bombs, toxic emissions (smog),harmful chemical emissions from factories, waste dumped in water that is killing the oceans, etc.
* Heat-trapping gases= CO2, methane, flouro-carbons, and others. CO2 (carbon dioxide) is emitted when we burn fossil fuels (gas, coal & oil). It is part of the normal way that Earth sustains heat. However, when there is anover-load of these gases -- the temperature of the planet increases.CO2 tends to hold more heat and linger longer in the atmosphere...than other green-house gases. They create the "greenhouse effect" -- which warms the planet.
CLIMATE CHANGE RESULTS FROM THE INCREASE IN THE OVERALL, LONG-TERM PLANETARY WARMING.
As the planet gets warmer, the more the HYDROLIC CYCLE is effected….and thus, more water evaporates. When solar radiation hits water on the Earth surface, liquid water becomes vaporized when molecules near the surface have enough energy and freedom to overcome the relatively weak hydrogen bonds of their neighbors. As surface temperatures rise, the number of energetic molecules to jostle and escape the water’s surface tension will be greater, and evaporation will be more rapid.
In certain areas, droughts are the result of disappearing (evaporating)water. The water creates cycles that result in rainstorms, and snowstorms. The movement of water from the melting poles has also affected the land masses and tectonic plates—resulting in earthquakes.
* DEFORESTRATION: Cutting down & destroying plants and the Rainforests.
Trees and plants help create oxygen and clean the air (photosynthesis).
OXYGEN sustains life. Free oxygen is created in the oceans, but it is created byphytoplankton, microscopic single-celled algae. Millions of tons of phytoplankton "bloom" across the world's oceans every year, and this accounts for about 50% of atmospheric oxygen. The other 50% comes from plants on land.
THE EARTH REACTS WHEN SHE IS VIOLATED.
WEATHER IS THE WAY THAT NATURE MAINTAINS
AN ECOLOGICAL BALANCE.
** NOW NEARLY EVERY DAY we see stories on the news ...
Stories of widespread hunger, disease, war and reports
about monster storms, floods, blizzards, and worse!
