In Part-1 of this three-part series, we presented the latest findings and data that show how the Earth’s internal nuclear furnace may play a very significant role in the Earth’s climate change. In This Part-2, we will closely examine a recently published article, “Nature’s Response To 500 Years of Cooling,” download the complete report from https://www.academia.edu/s/d21a7b4a34?source=work to get an appreciation of the power and heat generated by one such underwater volcano. In Part 3, we put all the climate change pieces together and provide our climate change projection for the next 50 years.
The Axial Seamount Global Warming? Under Sea Volcanos, The Axial Seamount. Thousands More Like It—a special report By Jim LeMaistre, copyright 2020.
Figure-1 shows us three hundred kilometers off Oregon’s coast; there is an undersea volcano, “The Axial Seamount.” It erupted in 1982, 1998, 2011, and 2015. New Scientist July 9, 2007, suggests that there are roughly 3 million volcanoes under the world’s oceans. This one is the only undersea volcano ever regularly studied. It is estimated that about 80 % of all volcanic activity on Earth occurs under the oceans. Yet, almost nothing is known about these volcanoes. Scientists do not even have a scale to measure the power, heat, and effects of volcanoes that erupt under the sea, like the above land’s systems rating.
But what is going on in the deep, out of sight, and out of instrument range? Quote “The volcanoes erupt, the water it touches instantly boils and turns to 700o C steam. The steam has up to 1,000 times more atmospheric pressure applied to it than it would at sea level. That steam is pushed, screaming to the surface where it evaporates. That hot steam rises 24 hours a day until the lava stops flowing. Meanwhile, the rising steam acts to change the patterns of the Jetstream, hence, causing major disruptions in ‘typical’ weather patterns. See west coast North America, Summer 2015, by example. It is not just the water that gets warmer. The air, the weather, and even the Jet streams above are dramatically affected as well…”
In another section, the article goes on to say, Quote: “On July 18, 2011, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), an agency of the United States Government, declared, in Scientific Americani and also in Nature Geoscience on July 17, 2011, that more than 1/2 of all the heat that keeps planet Earth from freezing in the cosmos comes from the fission reactor at the Earth’s core. The other half of the heat that keeps life possible on Earth comes from the Sun. The Earth’s core is said to be 6,230o centigrade… Equal to the temperature of the surface of the Sun. Scientists described the core of the Earth as a Fission Reactor producing more than one half of all the heat needed to survive in the Universe as we careen through space at 107,000 kilometers per hour circling around the Sun.”
Yet, neither NASA/NOAA, the UN/IPCC, or any of the hundred-plus climate change models consider this enormous source of heat in calculating the Earth’s Energy Budget. They simply measure the Sun’s TSI (Total Solar Irradiance) arriving on Earth and consider it the only heat source, totally ignoring the Earth’s internal nuclear furnace. But the truth is finally starting to leak out.
- On January 15, 2014, the Journal Nature published an astounding article, with the title “Climate change: The case of the missing heat. Sixteen years into the mysterious ‘global-warming hiatus,’ scientists are piecing together an explanation”.ii
- Science Magazine jumps into the fray: Quote “Call it the climate change conundrum: Even though humans are pumping more greenhouse gases than ever into the atmosphere, the world’s average air temperature isn’t rising as quickly1 as it once did. Some scientists have proposed that the missing heat is actually being trapped deep underwater by the Pacific Ocean”.iii
These articles and dozens of other “news outlets” seem bent on distracting us with more babbling about CO2,iv the greenhouse effect, high altitude balloon temperatures readings, and how the Sun’s heat somehow finds its way to heating the coldest waters in the deepest oceans. Meanwhile, lower troposphere temperatures continue to drop, as dramatically seen in the last 4-year in the lower part of Figure-2 (solid green arrow trend). In the upper part of Figure 2, we see a dramatic correlation between El Nino and La Nina cycles and the satellite temperature record. Is this a mere coincidence? Let’s not get distracted by what NASA/NOAA and their accommodating press/media tell us about possible causes of the missing heat. – It’s the Underwater Volcanoes, Stupid!
The Earth’s core! The entire premise of their Earth’s Energy Budgetv is based on the false belief that the Sun provides 100% of the planet’s heat. Yet 30% of the Earth’s mass is molten iron, fueled by uranium, thorium, and sulfur at temperatures upwards of 12,000 degrees F. How can they dismiss this enormous heat and the stochastic kinetic energy from its Coriolus effect with differential speeds of hundreds of miles per hour as they push around the massive continental plates and releasing untold tons of lava? It’s estimated that around 80% of all volcanic activities occur at these tectonic plates’ boundaries.vi
As early as 2007, evidence emergedvii that millions of volcanoes and vents are located all along the estimated 90,000 kilometer long tectonic boundaries. As of the 2007 period, satellites could not detect underwater volcanoes that were less than 1,500 meters high. More recent research indicates that as many as 39,000 underwater volcanoes exist less than 1,500 meters high. In addition, there are untold numbers of volcanic vents with little height through which heat and CO2 escape, warming up the waters and releasing CO2 and other gasses into the atmosphere. The articleviii goes on to say: “Hiller says he was surprised to find that the density of small volcanoes dropped in the area around Iceland, as Iceland is known to be a hotspot for volcanic activity. Another surprise was that he found fewer volcanoes on the seabed around Hawaii, another volcanic hotspot. He says his findings may mean that researchers need to re-assess their understanding of how submarine volcanoes are formed.”
The latest discoveries tell us that the last half-century’s increased temperatures may have been primarily caused by heat from untold numbers of deep ocean volcanic activities worldwide. Deep ocean water is frigid. As such, it holds immeasurable amounts of dissolved CO2 and other gasses. When the lava warms these waters, it releases gazillion tons of CO2 into the atmosphere, thus also explaining the rapid rise in global CO2 levels during this same period. This deep ocean warming may also be the heat pump that pumps up the surface temperatures and powers engines like the El Nino and other oceanic oscillators. This deep ocean warming also explains other phenomena worldwide, like the melting of coastal glaciers and sea ice. In contrast, the land-based ice sheets on Antarctica and Greenland continue to grow. Then add to that the expansion of water as it warms may also explain the small increase in sea levels.
There have also been several discoveries of major volcanoes hidden beneath glaciers, causing them to melt locally. One prime example is confirmed under West Antarctic Ice Sheet at Pine Island Glacier. This is where the dramatic videos of the glacial cliffs crash into the Antarctic sea are taken. The potential effects of these volcanic warming on ice-sheet melting and sea-level rise are still to be determined.ix
Summary of Energy budget deficiencies. In Figure-4, we see the popularized NASA /UN-IPCC Earth’s Energy Budget, and we will now discuss its significant shortcomings.
1. Incoming solar energy 100% and outgoing 70% (64 +6) fails to mention and adjust for the variable heat contributed by the Earth’s volcanic, vent, and tectonic activities.
2. Fails to adjust for heat contributed by earthbound heat sources like biomass fermentation, wildfires, animal respiration, human combustion of fossil fuels and nuclear plants, and Urban Heat Island Effects.
3. Reflected energy to space is set at a static 30% (6+20+4%). Fails to adjust for increased/decreased cloud cover made by the galactic cosmic rays and ash/gasses from volcanoes.
In this Part -2, we highlighted the latest developments in how the Earth’s internal nuclear furnace needs to be considered into the Earth’s energy budget, especially after noting the high El Nino/La Nina correlation with atmospheric temperatures. In Part-3, we will put together all the pieces into a unified theory of Earth’s global warming and present our climate projection for the next 50 years.
