Earlier on Earth Temperature page of this site, I explained how the Thermosphere temperature influences the temperature on the surface of Earth through thermal radiation, and forms what is called Temperature Belts of homogenous climates. Several consequences emerged as the two Magnetic poles keep moving eastward.
- The magnetic field in the western/ southern hemisphere has to travel larger distances and cover vaster areas from pole to pole. As such, the magnetic intensity became weaker especially mid distance between the two magnetic poles on the western/ southern hemisphere or what is known as the South Atlantic Anomaly.
- The charged particles continuously arriving from the Sun penetrate such a weaker magnetic field, bombard the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Ocean and accordingly cause them to warm.
- Huge amounts of methane (CH4) are stored around the world at 500 meter below sea level, in the form of solid methane hydrates. Methane in the ocean is produced by microbes within the sea floor that break down organic matter that sinks down from the sunlit zone near the surface. Organic matter is composed, for example, of the remains of dead algae and animals, as well as their excrements. These methane hydrates represent a large energy reserve for humanity. Warmer Oceans, however, could cause the hydrates to destabilize. The methane, a potent greenhouse gas, would escape unused into the atmosphere.
- As Methane encounters the Oxygen at of the Atmosphere, the Methane and Oxygen bond together to form Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and Water (H2O).
- While there are some measurements here and there on the amount of Methane released at certain spots of the Oceans, neither an elaborate model nor a global measurement of the same had been collected.
It is therefore my call for the 97% of the scientists who believe that increased CO2 and therefore global warming is a manmade phenomenon, to revisit their verdict and inspect a possible greater contribution by the released Methane gas as well as increased gale wind destructive force and increase of precipitation as a result of unprecedented increased water vapour.
