Re: [Methane Hydrate Club] Gaia news alert
- David, It seems to me that volcanoes do not bring usable iron to the
surface. In Oregon we have many lava fields which do not have usable
anything. Lava in almost any form other than dust, (which does work
some) is so hard that it will have to go through a lot of work before it
is broken down to usable form.
The slowing down of the earth due to freezing at the poles is
basic to bringing the shifting of the poles. You can think of some things
that might be good about that, but right now I can only think of some
very bad things.
I might list some good things that controlling the rotation speed
of the earth would do. But it doesn't sound like you are interested.
In my opinion if God has shown us how to do something, it just
might be possible that He wants us to use it. Of course anything can be
used for good or bad. Often both are the result.
Choosing to do nothing because one might feel like he is playing
God is like not wiping your nose because its natural to drip. Choosing
to listen to those that think that what is, is what God wants, is not
logical. We are charged to tend the earth.
Btw how is the SE theory not in sink with present Solar theory?
Mars is without volcanos because its plates have not shifted,
because its shape has not changed, because its rate of rotation has not
changed, because its poles have not shifted to new spots of rotation,
because no water has frozen on its poles to get in the way of its SE
conductivity, because there is not enough water on Mars. Why it lost its
water I haven't figured out yet. Possibly some passing body, or maybe it
was pulled someway too close to the Sun. Walter

I still don't go for the solar-electric jet idea, because it runs
completely counter to what is known about solar physics. However,
even if I did, and even if it were possible to do so, I would
adamantly opposed to altering Earth's natural rotation and plate
tectonics. Volcanos are absolutely vital to life. They recycle
minerals from the ocean floor back to the surface, and they replinish
the atmosphere from the loss of gas into space by the solar wind. If
it weren't for volcanos, we would not have heavy elements like iron
near the surface where we can get to them and use them.
If you want to see what happens when volcanos die, look at
Mars...barren, cold, comepletely dry (at least on the surface) and

may be some frosen water there, too. Mars lost its volcanos because
there's no geothermal heat to drive them. Its outer core has cooled
and solidified. It is also known that Mars has no magnetic field.
When the volcanos on Mars died out, there was nothing to replenish gas
in the atmosphere. Without the protection of a magnetic field, the
atmosphere was slowly and relentlessly eaten away by the solar wind,
and since Mars has less gravity by virtue of being smaller, it was
less able to try and hold onto that atmosphere. There may be vast
quantitues of water on Mars underground. The jury is still out on
that one. Mars does still have an atmosphere, although not much of
one. Its about 1/100 the density of Earth's. Still, that's enough to
cause some interesting weather there, including global dust storms,
clouds (including water ice clouds), and even a visible blue sky
sometimes, as evidenced by pictures returned by Pathfinder.
