THE DEADLIEST SUBSTANCE ON EARTH
by Anthony Marr
What is the deadliest substance on Earth? H1N1? Plutonium? What Sarah Palin calls her “brain”? None of the above, although the 3rd might just unleash the evil genie out of sheer ignorance and arrogance. The most dangerous substance on Earth is this:
It is called Methane Hydrate or Methane Clathrate – gaseous methane trapped in a water-ice matrix.
On land, layers of it is called the Permafrost. And the permafrost is melting, releasing its frozen demon into the atmosphere, toppling overlying trees and buildings in the process.
Methane is a super-powerful greenhouse gas that can generate its own lethal feedback loop, where more methane will warm the atmosphere more, melting more permafrost, releasing more methane… Once this feedback loop takes hold, the Methane-Time-Bomb can be said to have been detonated. This is also called Runaway Global Heating. This “M-Bomb” is a “slow bomb” which will take decades or centuries to spend, but once fully spent, there will be precious little of civilization and even life left on Earth. The End-Permian Mass Extinction, also driven by global warming, wiped out 85% of all species on Earth.
The time to stop the M-Bomb is before the detonation. Since 2000, we had about a dozen years to stop it. Bush not only wasted 8 of these 12 years, but accelerated the pre-detonation process, leaving Obama with no more than one term to fix it. Meanwhile, the American public is being deluded by the $50 million Global-Warming-Denial-Campaign fueled by Exxon et al.
President Obama, and Canadian PM Harper, are going to Copenhagen with lame proposals so inadequate to be suicidal for humanity and life on Earth. For one thing, the M-Bomb is still all but ignored; only its fuse – carbon dioxide – is addressed, and even so, deficiently.
If I could afford to do it, I would ship a ton of methane-rich permafrost to Copenhagen, dump it in front of the convention hall and light it ablaze at midnight, December 7.
This might just wake up the passengers in the runaway train. Can anyone in Denmark or Scandinavia do it? Or would enough donations come in to Heal Our Planet Earth (HOPE – http://www.HOPE-CARE.org) so that I can do it myself? Anyone interested in donating to this project please do so via one of the PayPal buttons in http://www.myspace.com/AnthonyMarr ASAP.
Note: I always put out my messages, but almost never ask for donations. Due to the urgency and scope of the matter, this is an exception.
