      But no one with electrical/EMF training or biological training is
      looking at them . . . yet. Hydrates are electrically insulating.
      Indeed, they are located in one methode by trolling electrodes and
      seeking conductivity anomalies. Trigger points are particularly a
      poor way of looking at a biological feedback. If the hydrates don't
      form, the area becomes like an exposed wire--and cannot conduct
      large scale low freq EMF as well--and the cloud feedbacks should
      cool. The issue, from my bio leanings, is modulations and defects
      in biological feedback loops, which include chemistry as well as
      temperature modulations.

      The recent 60 My event of the astroid in the GOM was much more
      interesting because it was followed by very cold period--according
      to the paleo evidence. This makes sense for hydrates to unform and
      then for the electrically insulating properties to be dramatically
      harmed. CO2 is much more of an interesting forcing ELECTRICALLY,
      but it should be tempered with the idea that it is a modulated
      reality, not a chaotic one, with very subtile signals getting
      modulated into something meaningful that the biosphere can amplify
      and use. Defects in feedback loops will not allow this to happen.

      It is not chaos then, chaos now, burn fossil fuels, but modulation
      then, modulation now, be careful of living feedback loops.
      Removing 30 gigatons of CO2 every year from what is not in the
      biosphere and burning directly into the lungs of the biosphere is
      going to have both direct electrical impact and indirect biological
      impact. Hydrates unforming by warming temperatures is more
      dangerous for droughts in regions that depend on the electrical
      insulating propertie of the hydrates. Active areas of the biosphere
      will uptake the carbon and feedback insulation, and with more life,
      conductivity, so you end up with extremes. If those extremes then
      lead to less modulation, they you get temperature and chemistry and
      ecology instabilities. To me, the most important measure of the
      instability of climate from human influences is the decreasing earth
      EMF, which has become 8 percent less intense over the past 100
      years, and 10 percent over the past 150.
