We Owe Ourselves an Oxygen Airlift Program

We Do Owe Ourselves an Oxygen Airlift Program

A longstanding environmental remediation tradition for soil, air and water contamination is the use of oxygen or oxidation enhancement with hydrogen peroxide to restore harmony by making compounds inert and harmless to their surroundings. This principle applies to the atmosphere as it stands now, as well. Countless refrigerant gases and reactive greenhouse gases such as methane are set to increase in concentration at the layer of the lower stratosphere, where as of 2017, ozone is depleted the most, while the upper stratosphere at 25 Km and above is recovering. While we emit more CO2 and methane, and increase warming at an accelerated rate with these contaminants, we all owe ourselves a chance to remove some of these man made culprits and we can share the cost globally in a fair way

Each of is who has benefited from years of refrigeration, air conditioning and fossil fuels can bear some of the cost to cool us down with an oxygen airlift and then bigger “polluters” in developed economies can shoulder some, and then newer polluters could make up the difference a “pay as we pollute” scheme so the past actions get us started and the present maintains our ability to oxygenate.

Scientists know how to attribute emissions to emitters, but not how to have them pay for cleanup, so I am going to provide a provisional framework for cost sharing. We deserve to reverse some of the global warming we are experiencing in order to save lives, property, and economies, as we shift off of fossil fuels and reduce all emissions.

In my blog I outline and reference why an oxygen airlift to 20-25 Km above the Earth will help us cool off the planet, and oxygen is the only non-toxic element that will do this for us. Oxygen is a part of the natural system and we need it. We deserve to give ourselves a break from accelerating global warming; a mistake that we can at least partially pull back from. Of the 487ppm of CO2 equivalent warming we have, 87 ppm are because of the refrigerant and synthetic greenhouse gases which are trapping heat at 20-25 Km above us. That means that we could with a thorough, well modeled, and tested effort, reverse 40% of all of our industrial era warming by removing these gases using oxygen. The oxygen when dispersed, would be activated by the Sun into reactive atomic oxygen radicals which would then destroy these gases, and the system would bring them down naturally. Make no mistake, this is known to happen in both atmospheric chemistry and in the fossil records. If we reversed 40% of the warming, it may mean that we return some snow cover and planetary reflectivity. We would have to maintain this reversal while we reduced emissions, and avoid putting stuff up in the atmosphere as much as possible so that heat escapes continually. No other agent will encourage heat release to space.

A million tons per day of oxygen are created from our ground based oxygen factories. We would only need a fraction of this to affect the lower stratosphere in an airlift. We have enough oxygen at ground to borrow for this restorative protocol, and we have all the means at our disposal to do it. We have tanks, aircraft, and skilled people who can perform it. We only have a limited window of about two decades to start this kind of protocol before the warming acceleration becomes too powerful and our polar ice is gone. Consider heat trapping geoengineering with sprayed toxic aerosols the alternative. Do you prefer that…or this?

In the next article I will outline a scheme to fund this protocol based on a historical and present polluter pay scheme, after providing an estimate of the provisional amount to airlift and its cost.

The Oxygen Earth Protocol to remove major atmospheric greenhouse gases by oxygen airlift

The Emergency Oxygen Plan to remove atmospheric greenhouse gases by oxygen airlift and cool the planetary temperature.

It can be done as a bypass of the carbon cycle.

There is ample capacity to send 3,000 to 10,000 tons of industrial oxygen in tanks to 2,000 feet above the cloud cover or up to 25 Km, to be activated by the sun and have the oxygen burn off major greenhouse gases. Only oxygen has slowly triggered glaciation in the fossil records 3 times over, solving global warming decisively. It’s the only non toxic plan that will work because we will not succeed unless the greenhouse gas levels are reduced. This is the lesson to take from the past and present  is why I am sharing this conservation strategy.

The gases we can remove are also ozone depleting substances, which are warming the planet by 80 ppm of the excess 160 ppm we have put in the sky. Just think what the world would be like if we removed these gases…half of the present warming could be reversed. What an important opportunity. We would also likely restore the ozone layer if we airlifted the oxygen to 20-25 Km, returning the world to a time when UV radiation was safe for life under the ozone layer.

500 million ton per day of oxygen are not tied to special industries, therefore, we could actually do this with carbon reinforced tanks and proper nozzles. It would not work for the ocean unless the oxygen is ionized by corona discharge systems, but, again, this could be done. It probably would cost less than half of the plan to split CO2 by using existing pressure swing absorption. We don’t have the luxury of time, so please spread the word that we have this capacity. It would save us from the toxic geoengineering operations! I believe humanity is ready to try this and with some peer review which I invite you to help with by sharing this, it could be launched in a few short years. I will serve as the resource person for this for as long as I can afford to keep the blog and YouTube channel (Viva Cundliffe) up. I will put up a donation button as well so that this site is helped by good strangers who read the blog to learn about oxygen and its ions from our technology which is for sale at http://www.gcgreencarbon.com.

New Analysis of CO2 levels in the fossil record:

CO2 levels follow warming cycle initiations because methane is the warming gas first, then- oxygen turns it into CO2 afterward. CO2 levels then rise after the methane releases. I believe this is what is missing in the analyses. Methane is on the rise now, so is warming, and this is where we should focus by targeting and removing the methane and the anthropogenic greenhouse gases using oxygen. Harada et al, “Transition to an oxygen rich atmosphere with an extensive overshoot triggered by the Paleoproterozoic…” 2015 Harada_et_al_2015_EPSL

This citation bears the clues to the methane watch and the condition of the oxygen-ozone-OH sinks:

Walker [1979] used a simple chemical model to explore the effect of lower oxygen on ozone concentrations (which would scale with OH radical). He found that maximum ozone actually increased with a slight drop in atmospheric O2 (0.5 present atmospheric level (PAL)) because of enhanced penetration of UV radiation. Kasting et al. [1985] explored the effects of much lower levels of oxygen with a more complete chemical model, finding that the methane residence time was slightly higher at 0.1 PAL but lower at 0.01 PAL and below. Another possibility is that the residence time of methane might increase substantially with a rise in methane flux if the tropospheric and stratospheric sinks became saturated. P 12: schrag et al.: initiation of a snowball earth 10.1029/2001GC000219

If the methane builds up, the oxygen based sinks are saturated and may need remediation, (which at the same time would lower UV penetration which is increased at present, causing skin cancer and sunburns to plants and animals).

Oceanic moisture to Pacific Coast of California

It is curious to me as a potential natural weather modification provider why California would not be receiving more precipitation. The convection in the ocean is not known to be irregular to the West. I can model this with a long trajectory triggering protocol using oxygen ions. There is only one reasonable pair of explanations for any place on Earth to be dry: it is being allowed or overlooked.

We can change what has developed in California. I would need help.

I wish you well

peer to peer message from Viva=women need to stop having children during a global emergency

Ladies, this is the time to avoid pregnancy and children, and get educated and involved in correcting the mistakes that lead to overpopulation and bad quality climate impacts and inferior geoengineering methods. Every child born to the Earth right now is lowering everyone’s standard of living while we need to be concentrating on what’s best for the world, especially women.

A woman’s maternal instinct should be telling her that this is not the right time to be reproducing. The world is not in good enough shape the way it is, in light of the aggressively polluted environment, the mismanaged states, climate refugees, poorly designed cities, decaying developed world, and starving first world countries. No matter how good your DNA is, nor how wealthy you are, your new children are a liability to you and your husband, and to the society that you think you are benefitting with new children. We need you and your brain more than more children.

Children are wonderful, pleasing and lovely, even magical, but not on a world that is imploding, and your world is imploding right now. Inferior climate engineering and global warming are not finished destroying the environment including our food systems, and this is where we need to focus for two reasons. First, more plant food diversity and locality eases food logistics and secondly we need to convert CO2 to oxygen with plants.

Multiply through gardening and plants, please don’t be so stupid as to have children right now. I believe that your maternal instincts can cause you to lose touch with reality too often, and you have not been directing your say about a clean world to live in to your society, to your family, your spouses because often women have not been informed as to what is going on in the larger world. Please stop shielding each other from the truth about the environment you live on. Your new baby is not making the world a better place for quite some time, and what’s worse, the world is not in good enough shape to put children in it. The main power you have in this world is your power to refuse your partners offspring unless the standards around you are high enough; well look around you, beyond your immediate surroundings which is the intelligent thing to do.

You are planning to send new young people out into larger surroundings than yours into a globalized society that is in a growing and expanding emergency. At this point all we are giving birth to is “emergency workers” that will be roped into a raw and desperate struggle for survival in a devolved world. Please consider what I am saying and avoid childbirth.

Another field of endeavor is study and higher learning. Please take the time to do it, and do it for your whole life with the intent of benefiting others as well as yourself. Your informed influence is needed more than your children. Learn new ways to craft peace and administration in the world, and better environmental practices than the ones that brought us to the brink of destruction under the domination of men. It is your turn to make the change, but if you keep having children you are removing your own opportunity to pursue this directly, you really cannot do both at the same time, it is too much, as many women will tell you after trying to be a supermom, the quality of life is terrible along with the pay. Please boycott this unrealistic role compensation and consider your own lives first during this global emergency. The less new and helpless people we as a female gender are servicing during these difficult times, the better. Women come first, and this is how I think you put your priorities in order during a crisis-don’t add liabilities and innovate new avenues for your love to flow so that a better environment is created. Your life will be better if you take more time for yourself so do it-just abstain from the traditional playbook for ten years and see what it does for you. The quality of your experience matters, but we have run into a little global emergency right now, called global warming and we need able-bodied able-minded climate friendly people focusing on that, rather than children, to ensure that the biosphere is stabilized.

Global infrastructure problems need global solutions including reverse engineering

Climate and CO2 deniers cannot hide behind the Ordovician period of 44 million years ago when the CO2 level was 12 times what it is now, and there was glaciation. CO2 is not beneficial to life because of the Ordovician period example. All greenhouse gases conspire to create warming, and back then there was likely an absence of methane because oxygen levels were high enough to burn off methane and maximize heat escape.

The lesson of the Ordovician is that CO2 cannot be oxidized by oxygen species in the atmosphere, it is the one exception greenhouse gas. What this tells us also is that if we oxidized off all other greenhouse gases, which we might have the power to do in a significant partial measure, we can trigger a global scale cool down.

All regional methods to try and cool the Earth down, and even forest fires which cause regional cooling, are only temporary short time scale cooling measures. We need the longest time scale cool down we have at our disposal. There is only one measure that will work, a global scale measure, global removal of greenhouse gases, and the only way left to us is to concentrate oxygen at ground and send it up to the ozone layer where sunlight will activate the oxidation cycle and burn off these gases. If we could shade the Sun, we would still have the problem of greenhouse gases, and we would lower photosynthesis, which is another global scale infrastructure we need to maximize for both CO2 level removal and evaporative cooling.

Chemicals and physics not found in nature are not the only ways to modify the weather, the climate, the global temperature. In fact science has gone completely mad with these ideas and methods and is destroying the planet, and the sooner this is admitted by science, the better. these methods, from all over the globe, which can be seen at credible sites like geoengineeringwatch.org, to weatherwars 101, to Gaia, to aboriginal group objections, and many others, catalogue the science hubris and madness that is going to drive humanity into starvation. The only people that will be left if we don’t change course will be the wealthy who instead of proper stewardship methods, chose capitalism/cannibalism and invested their wrongly earmarked profits into deep underground bases, so they could inherit tunnels in an aftermath which they piloted. These are cunning people not intelligent people.

The planet is small enough that we can damage it and lose life support. Trying to overwrite natural principles of chemistry and thermodynamics contaminates our biological heritage and legacy. Before all resilience in the system is lost, and we are in the tunnels, we need to try to do better. We need to stop overpopulating the Earth now, right now each and every woman should be educated in this imperative reality now. We went forth and multiplied without the right resource distribution and management systems in place and now we have millions either at each other’s throats, or dying slowly in droughts. The lines between competition and cooperation on this earth are not drawn correctly. We need to do some rewriting whether we like it or not, and it has to be done with the consciousness that our decisions very clearly affect others, and the environment we have is the most important treasure we have. It is more important than all of the synthetic treasure we think is valuable. Greed for those synthetic treasures has created a dying natural world, and because of it, now our task is to salvage what is important while many are still ignorant, and while the cunning try to prep their way into the tunnels that will be needed to house survival goods that we had above ground on a stable planetary system. Had we made better choices in chemistry, physics, and governance, we would not be looking at a dying infrastructure of life.

Luckily we have a store of oxygen in the atmosphere that will be there for us for a long time, but let’s remember that plant life put that oxygen there for us. The other infrastructures we need are going to be distributed by careful thought, brute force, competition, or climate forces. The profit models of the past, which fueled manic greed and delusions of security, or wealth addictions, have left many investors sitting on their funds for lack of enough profit in the business models of needed projects. There is an abundance of innovation in waste to energy projects, green infrastructure, but these do not make enough profit for the ones with quite a lot of the wealth. If they don’t lower their profit expectations and remember that right now we need all of the waste management  and green technology we can possibly have to protect and salvage life on Earth we could lose it all.

Much is going to fall away for people living a human experience on this planet. It is now our task to let go of what is not important in deference to the longevity of life support infrastructure that we have globally damaged, one mistake at a time. We for example, are not going to solve global warming with anything less than a global cool down that reverse engineers our plight. The one available to us with the least number of drawbacks is an oxygen airlift that will do some ozone layer restoration at the same time that it cools us down. We just have to get the dosage right, and we can model this with computers. I propose that life support infrastructure needs to be fully protected globally as soon as possible in full contrast to every man for himself darwinian philosophy. We are going to need to take some writ large actions and writ large policy direction changes in the near future, so prepare with an open mind, and be as smart as possible about the environment even while increasing CO2 levels are lowering your IQ.

Important analysis of oxygen outgassing from the ocean

Usually an Oxygen level spike in the atmosphere, if it is big enough, it is pro cooling as shown in the fossil record. When there is warming of the ocean however, dissolved oxygen and CO2 come out of solution. The oxygen migration out of the ocean presently is 0.5 Million Tonnes a year. What should alarm us is that the oxygen is supplying more oxidation to the atmosphere, but the greenhouse gases that can be removed by oxygen are still increasing, so, we are losing ground increasingly.

Any helpful positive atmospheric feedback that may have happened over the past three decades of a significant total (roughly 18 MT) of oxygen outgassing have not improved the state of the ozone layer, nor oxidized off enough greenhouse gases to effect a reversal of the global warming trajectory as it has done in the fossil record when enough oxygen was present and synthetic greenhouse gases were not present. The refrigerant gases that are destroying the Ozone layer and causing a big chunk of global warming (80ppm CO2 eq) need to be dealt with before rising CO2 takes us into the irreversible hothouse Earth state by warming the planet enough to trigger a deadly level of methane farts, which have already started to happen. Where is our integrity? We owe ourselves and everyone else we share the Earth with an upper atmospheric repair effort.

The oceans have let go of enough oxygen to start causing anoxic zones which are a part of the present mass extinction, but atleast the outgassed oxygen can be sent by plane up to the ozone layer to mitigate its several lingering problems, which should be deemed unacceptable. Why are we accepting so much damage to the earth system? Why are we accepting that the polluters who caused this do not need to show full integrity and pay for the cleanups? Forensic science is capable of doing a full attribution on who should pay, and how this should be funded can be a compilation of consumers and suppliers in the developed world. Anyone who thinks this is too much to ask has forgotten the computing power we can easily deploy to get this done. The sooner we bring this into integrity, the better for everyone. There are many fair ways that can be used to fund our emergencies- or- we can pay nothing and pay the ultimate price of perpetrating an extinction-and being extincted, boiling us down to a brutish, ugly species with all of the right technology to steward the planet. but no real leadership or innovation in the financing of the stewardship needed to stabilize it. We need to be involved in active global mitigation efforts on a routine basis because the planet is small enough to be damaged and fail in its ability to support us if we do not weigh and measure what we are doing. Most of us understand that now. For every methane molecule we allow in the atmosphere, we will need 10 oxygen molecules to remove it, so, the sooner we work to cool the Earth with oxygen, the less oxygen we will squander on methane farts and great discomfort, if not deaths, in the future.

Remove greenhouse gases other than CO2 and see global cooling

We have a lot of greenhouse gases other than CO2 that can be removed with an oxygen airlift at 19 Km altitude to trigger some cooling. 16 computer modeling groups have been contacted to initiate the design of a model to show the changes we can expect from an oxygen airlift. Results will be released when we have been notified.

All of the gases below that are not black are oxidizable with oxygen. This means that at least 1/3rd of the warming we have caused can be reversed, which translates into at least 0.7’C.

According to NOAA’s Annual Greenhouse Gas Index (right axis) the combined heating influence of all major greenhouse gases has increased by 41% relative to 1990. NOAA Climate.gov graph, based on data from NOAA ESRL. https://www.climate.gov/news-features/understanding-climate/climate-change-atmospheric-carbon-dioxide

 

While we oxidized these gases, we would also be able to repair the UV protection offered by the Ozone layer at the same time. The choice to not perform this oxygen airlift involves either doing nothing to correct our errors, or adding aerosols to effectively continue holding heat waves inside our atmosphere where they are killing us, causing massive droughts, starvation, wars and displacements right now.

The developed world which caused all of these problems needs to come together and remove the removable greenhouse gases as soon as possible.

Possible to stop the global warming tipping points with oxygen

https://www.livescience.com/63267-hothouse-earth-dangerously-close.html?utm_source=ls-newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20180807-ls

In their perspective paper, Rockström and his team corroborated existing literature on various natural feedback processes and concluded that many of them can serve as “tipping elements.” When one tips, many of the others follow.

Nature has feedback mechanisms, such as a rainforest’s capability to create its own humidity and rain, that keep ecosystems in equilibrium. If the rainforest is subject to increasing warming and deforestation, however, the mechanism slowly gets weaker, Rockström said.

“When it crosses a tipping point, the feedback mechanism changes direction,” Rockström said, and the rainforest morphs from a moisture engine into a self-dryer. Eventually, the rainforest turns into a savanna and, in the process, releases carbon, he said.

This, in turn, can become part of a cascade that would influence other processes around the world, such as ocean circulation and El Niño events. Other tipping points include the thawing of permafrost, loss of Arctic summer sea ice and the loss of coral reefs.”

If we oxidize off all the greenhouse gases except CO2 at the level of the Ozone layer, using oxygen, we may remove our problem, in the Ordovician ice age this happened. The Ordovician period had 14 x the CO2 levels of present day, and yet, there was glaciation. The other greenhouse gases were removed and the Sun was at a solar minimum. We put so much CO2 into the air, and it is only really removed by plants, but it is a relatively weak greenhouse gas compared to others. It may not hold all of our needed heat in if it is the only greenhouse gas in the atmosphere-this is the potential lesson of the Ordovician period. We have too many oxidizable major greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and we need to remove a large portion of them scientifically and the only relatively fast and very safe method is using an oxygen airlift technique.
