atmospheric aerosols use up oxidant which causes more warming

The OH* radical is normally forming bonds with particulates and making the particulates more soluble in water so that they will be removed by rain. The hydrogen side of the molecule can penetrate the surface tension of water. When more particulates are in the air, the OH* ligands are used up and a shortage will cause a big problem that may already be sneaking up on us. OH* also oxidizes greenhouse gases like methane but if it is all or partially used up by the process of attaching to particulate matter, then it cannot burn off methane and other gases and we see a build up.

Aerosols also reflect sunlight that is used by the O2 molecule to split into atomic O1d atoms, where OH* is formed after the O1D meets water.

Note these two reactions:

O2 + hv(sunlight) = 2 O1d

O1d + H2O = 2OH*

From one oxygen molecule we can get 4 OH*, which is a quadruple benefit for scrubbing the air and aging aerosols. With too many aerosols wasting OH*, we lose the needed scrubbing. This could lead to very accelerated warming because overall it takes 10 O2 net to remove methane in an average ten year process using significant OH*.

We are just going into a four year record average highest global temperature. As we look for the causes, we must look at how the oxidants are being suppressed or overused by aerosols and allow methane to persist longer. This will be critical as we find a way to battle the methane blowouts from arctic permafrost and the oceans which can triple the carbon content of the air with methane which is 30 times worse than CO2.

We may have to release atomic or ionized oxygen to help reverse these trends and increase oxidation of methane.

 

 

Ripple Mining: An Impossible Task  

Start taking NET ZERO CARBON DAYS

Employers need to help people start living out net zero carbon periods of time if we are going to succeed at handling this emergency. Sheltering in place, staying at home, working from home, banning single occupant driving need to be sanctioned by our societies.

The honor system has failed us at every level. The only alternative is to proscribe carbon use with permits. It’s the only way we are  going to succeed, and I want you all to succeed.

Aerosol Masking Effect Policy Action Deadlock Resolution

Perhaps the darkest chapter of our global warming emergency is the policymaker deadlock with the fact that aerosols and particulate matter are having a cooling effect that we will lose as we halt combustion, causing a rebound of warming and taking us into the 2’C warming category.

The way to address this is to remove all reactive GHGs and short lived climate pollutants with technology that emits hydroxyl radicals as we stand down from combustion.

This hydroxyl response would remove 2’C of heat if it were large enough as we shift off of fossil fuels.

Policy makers appear to be paralyzed by this problem of aerosol masking because emissions increased in 2018. We can’t continue this inaction and need complementary work such as hydroxyl dispersal to be started and scaled before we reach a global tipping point as the Arctic is in abrupt warming amplification.

The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists have called for just such a measure as hydroxyl dispersal.

Actively 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.

 

Any enhancement of the natural background hydroxyl ion (radical) will help with this problem as well as saving lives by reducing other air pollutants. Municipal governments are being given the option to become custodians of air quality and climate using one technology called Reduction Tech, which emits hydroxyls and makes the air it uses pristine.

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.

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 these removable greenhouse gases as soon as possible.

 

Ethereum Mining: How It Works  

Our global collective is our atmosphere and we all now damage it beyond its capacity

The sky is a limited container-handle with care!

In science, the convention of working with pollution at its source to stop it presently is not working. How do we know this? Because emissions went up 1.7% in 2018.

So, as an engineer, I’m telling you you have to really cut your personal emissions and the best way to do that is to stop vehicle emissions immediately. And please if you have to use your car, share it with as many people as possible. Make the extra effort to ride share.

In order to successfully target the high emitters of society, you may have to all sign on to a carbon rationing system that won’t hurt you very much, but will target the rich. This sounds political, but it is grounded in fact. Heavy emitters are stealing your climate safety away from you, the average citizen. I apologize for being blunt.

Dr. Kevin Anderson of the Tyndall Center for Climate Change teaches about this very clearly and truthfully, which in these times you deserve to hear. I suggest like he does that the only way to target the rich is through a whole society policy of tradable emissions permits, where all can be held accountable fairly.

We all must bear in mind that Climate Change Canada just issued a comprehensive report in which it states that Canada has officially warmed 1.7’C, which makes the 2’C target the only option instead of 1.5’C for Canada.

Interpretation of Snowball Earth

The fossil record shows both Methane and CO2 in the sequences of glaciation studied By the Snowball Earth Hypothesis. The Prime actor between these two gases…Oxygen, is very important, as it is used up by Methane as Methane is broken down into CO2 and water. Here is another natural action that may not have been fully captured by the hypothesis- Once the plant matter is rotting after a cooling event which causes plant die off, the decomposition process gives off Methane which will eventually become CO2.

So we witness discussion like this, where the headline is confusing the ordinary reader.

https://www.livescience.com/16402-snowball-earth-carbon-dioxide.html

At this point it should not be a discussion about Carbon Dioxide only- as Methane is so often the precursor gas which sponges up the cooling oxygen gas (hydroxyl) which triggers or encourages cooling of the Earth.

But this article points out that CO2 is not the warming trigger according to their assessment and also that levels were potentially very high in the fossil record- over 1000 ppm. This suggests that methane was very high-essentially up to the same ppm level to cause that CO2 level. This would cause warming by removing 6 O atoms per CH4.

The thermostat is  a relatively simple relationship between Oxygen and Methane, and now anthropogenic CO2, with a longer term,  blanketing protection from water and CO2 as Methane is broken down. The water vapor warms at lower altitude.

Presently we are injecting combustion CO2 without a Methane precursor and other greenhouse gases which also have depleted the oxygen for the ozone layer. The real impact has been the cooling action from the plant exhalation of oxygen ( that is ionized in the high atmosphere) which is well recorded. It then rots and gives Methane/CO2 which effectively rewarms.

Therefore if plants can affect this thermostat, we should look there to the oxygen and how it changed the available Methane, then that resulting decomposition to CO2 and water which then fed another cycle of plant growths, and went around again in this simple cycle. These gases were always present once plant life was here. It is the ratios which we want to check against that record in order to find the applicability.

The more powerful than CO2 gases are subject to oxidation and promote cooling ( heat venting) by their absence mathematically and physically. Their control requires oxygen, either natural or provided via direct remediation. Our problem is having all of these releasing all at once, including Methane from permafrost.

The warming caused by all of the co pollutants from combustion cause warming and are called short lived climate pollutants. However in September 2010, a Methane blowout process now occurring will be far more serious. The antidote to the Methane is one gas- Oxygen-best delivered in the form of an ion called the hydroxyl. In the fossil record, there are cases where oxygen and its oxidation of methane has caused a snowball Earth, when CO2 levels were low enough to allow heat venting. Presently we can count on only about 2’C of this cooling, but even that may be a pivotal and necessary opportunity we must take. We must seriously consider some forms of carbon rationing, either at national levels, or target high emitters, to make any cooling successful.

Municipalities at the front lines of climate change intervention need the support of Provincial and Federal governments. If they include air and climate quality control as an infrastructure, they are going to need to do it on a global basis.

 

As air conditioning and refrigeration increases we will cause more global warming

More Leaks

The air conditioners and fridges mainly use potent greenhouse gases to function. As we collectively use more of them as the globe warms, we are in for additional leakages for a couple of reasons.

More use means more wear and tear on these units, which entails leaks from damaged seals, or from when they are emptied. The number of units is increasing as well, British Columbia Hydro and other utilities have reported record breaking electricity use this summer, due to this fact.

Already, the refrigerant gases are causing at least 78 ppm CO2 equivalents of warming as they reside at the level of the ozone layer. This brings the total to 478 ppm not 400 (R Prinn et al). where a significant number of these gases are still also tearing up the ozone layer.

The only way they are removed is when oxygen is activated and breaks the gases down with the aid of sunlight, and the less harmful remainders are scrubbed out or fall out of the sky. A couple of forms of oxygen do this for us.

In this blog bulletin we work to cover all of the aspects of doing an oxygen airlift up to the ozone layer. where it would destroy the damaging gases there and trigger some cooling as the walls stopping heat from leaving Earth are removed.  To understand more about the oxygen airlift, check out the other articles here.

More on the Hydroxyl Tipping Point

ReductionTechtm

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Does this method really assist with outdoor air quality and greenhouse gases?

Yes. The hydroxyl radical is relied upon in nature as the #1 air quality and greenhouse gas removal compound. Its secret is that it persists in the atmosphere until it does react, meaning any enhancement of it will have an additive effect.

2. What are the methods to distribute it through a community?

There are larger facilities with a rooftop dispersal as well as local area utility pole mounted systems. These are automated and require a minimum of servicing.

3. Is the hydroxyl radical really overwhelmed by modern pollutants?

The highest average amount of hydroxyl is 7 ppm and about 20% recycles in the area overnight. This means that total pollutant counts above 8.60 ppm are overwhelming it and are creating a tipping point where the polluted area is now contributing to a build up of greenhouse gases and pollutants that is being exported out of the local area into neighboring regions, and contributing to accelerated global warming and climate damages.

4. Isn’t the atmosphere an unlimited container?

Definitely not and only coordinated removal processes will ensure that we lower pollutant levels and protect infrastructure and lives in the mid and long term. The vast effectiveness of the hydroxyl cleaning ability, which is now overwhelmed, often lulls us into thinking the atmosphere has an infinite capacity.

5. Isn’t the average pollution count still acceptable in urban air?

Our statistics are based on Canadian monitoring that must include particulates and if possible, aerosol counts. The aggregate pollution count is used because hydroxyl attaches to, or breaks up aerosols and PM, so these constituents use it up just as much as the other pollutants. When they are included in urban air, even Canada’s standards allow too much for the natural hydroxyl level.

6. With smart cities, can’t we lower our emission levels?

It’s a long journey and plant stress and plant metabolism from increased CO2, warming and drought alone is increasing aerosol levels even in green cities. Atmospheric brown carbon and black carbon are a global issue and use up the hydroxyl reservoir and are exported to neighboring countries of developing countries that have asserted that they will peak their emissions before considering cutting down. Global emissions rose over 2% in 2018 while 18 single countries lowered emissions and viable direct removal methods like this one at ReductionTechtm are being scaled up because the global average temperature is still rising, drought, floods and fires are projected to progress by scientists.

Hydroxyl Tipping Point Reached

March 15, 2019 CHEMICAL COMMUNICATION

Viva Cundliffe1

The Hydroxyl Radical is most likely being inundated by pollution in worldwide air sheds, leading to an overall failure to oxidize methane.

Over 30 air shed reporting sites were consulted to observe and note the pollution levels, and placed in this small calculator to determine what the Hydroxyl deficit was in each area.

In all cases, there was a deficit of the hydroxyl radical when totaled against the listed species. This strongly indicates that the future will include a growing failure by hydroxyls to remove methane, leading to a non-linear climate forcing feedback, which we suggest, has now begun.

DEFICIT OF OH 1.315638 ppm

This is a snapshot of the calculator, where as noted, a new group can add hydroxyl to the environment that has a deficit. Shown here is an addition of 1.1 ppm, but this leaves still, a deficit of 1.315 ppm in addition to that. The total deficit shown here in this typical air sample is 2.415 ppm, which we suggest, is enough of a deficit (over 25%) to leave room for a cumulative buildup of total methane, as well as other pollutants.

As many will recall, about 25% of the hydroxyl will be recycled over four days. Any pollution demand over this “recycled boost” will result in un-reacted pollution remaining in the air, and this critical tipping point is reached.

The tipping point has been shown here.

We looked at this for urban airsheds and see a clear deficit of hydroxyls, which calls for a remediation system. You would think that mixing with remote air sheds would balance the deficit, but with global warming, plant life gives off an increased amount of volatile organic compounds, which use up hydroxyls. With an across the board depletion of this main natural atmospheric cleanser, gases and pollutants are going to build up and it’s simply a question of how fast this happens, not “if” it will.

This will significantly contribute to further global warming if nothing is done to enhance the relative hydroxyl levels. If we enhance hydroxyls, they have the potential to provide 2’C of global cooling, which is being proposed by a company in Canada.

Carbon Karma and tradable emissions permits

For us to return to a stable climate, we all need to know that in an equal system, each of us can emit 16.7 Tonnes of CO2 per year, while we rapidly scale up direct air capture and removal technologies. If you emit more than this what you are doing is hurting everyone else, everything else and are wasteful and careless. All emissions above this baseline should be paid for at- or at progressive multiples of the full value and cost that it takes to technologically reduce them, not through trees.

Carbon Insurance Numbers for every person on Earth

A carbon insurance number that holds your personal carbon budget information profile and history and helps you find ways to offset your carbon over a certain level has now become necessary so that scientists can manage the climate mitigation work that is being done and started.

If we don’t confront this fact, we are going to continue down the trajectory that is going to kill a lot of people and biosphere.

As a species we have to get control of our carbon demand and removal immediately. We all have a personal stake in this planet’s condition. It is time to appreciate this planet in scientific and thoughtful ways as a species of enlightened individuals. A global personal commitment to a livable planet by everyone is the last big step we need to take.

Don’t we deserve to survive? The sooner we commit to what is going to be delayed gratification and emergency socialization of carbon, the better off we will all be.

As the CEO and founder of a negative emissions technology I am telling you all this out of love for you and the planetary diversity that is left. There is no point in my company helping you unless you work with me to really be truly effective, because as of today, March 5, 2019, you are not lowering your carbon demand. I presently see this as a demand-side issue.

The honor system for emissions reduction currently applied with individuals and with nations at the COP 24 level have failed.

Our particular technology can only reduce warming by 2.1’C by removing methane and synthetic Greenhouse gases once fully applied. After this, there are no second chances. The reason my company exists is to help you succeed and we know that carbon demand must come down by 50% virtually immediately. Our youth are fully aware of the need for equity, as well as many others. To stall a program of global carbon demand reduction is harmful to your fellow humanity.

Friends, the science has clearly shown us where we are headed, and what we have left to salvage, which is a significantly damaged biosphere. We are now all global citizens with global responsibilities whether we like it or not. We are now all accountable to each other whether we like it or not. We need to get on the same page about our global state.

Our carbon consumption is no longer a private matter-it matters to everyone because we do have an overshoot of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere which we all contributed to. Our first mission as a global society, is to succeed at saving our biosphere for ourselves to live on. All other affairs are trivial right now.

The news media must join in this call to globally unite and organize a rapid emergency carbon demand reduction system for everyone, that is equitable and just, while we also remove the excess greenhouse gases. I know that if you were in my shoes, you would also call for these measures so that we can all succeed.

I wish you well,

Carbon budgeting possibilities

An integrated  equitable Carbon economy is needed based on the actual carbon budget left globally, and here are a few very basic concepts that could be written into a society plan. It can be dry run for educational and testing purposes before it is fully implemented because we do have the computing power. This is a highly variable template of options.
1. Tradable carbon budgets constructed on a CREDIT card like system which are secure,
reloadable transferable, auditable and adjustable
2. Individual, Group and Community Carbon VISA, accounting systems possibly secured by block chain technology.
3. Personal Carbon budget based on preset lifestyle standards. People can check their budgets at different living standards
4. Each person can profile themselves and find their budget baseline, budget for buying or offsetting luxuries like bonfires for example. After certain limits, buying the privilege to emit becomes more expensive on a progressive or exponential scale because then the disincentive will match the current emergency need to halt emissions
5. Work and Professional Carbon budgets for commuting, air travel
6. Enterprise carbon budgets: Based on # working persons, FTE, commuting/non commuting,
vehicle/no vehicle
7. Family Carbon VISA
8. Borrowing rules, borrowing against future credits for family emergencies and family funerals
9. GHG Offsets Savings Plans
10. Offset Insurance-buying a policy which invests in offset technologies where liabilities like mobile emissions are hard to quantify, buying offset services direct from an offset technology provider
11. Offset project Investment plans, term deposits, notes, where investing in offset projects or services accrues a small percentage of growth in the credit at maturity
12. Assigning or inheriting offset credits-rules and procedures
13. Offset volunteerism, tree plantings, plant biomass credits, purchase & use of solar power equipment, buying bulk solar or hydro, carbon negative power, or carbon neutral power of heating, efficiency incentives
14. Offset technology loans, grants, investments should be incentivized with tax rebates, lower rates, tax reductions, patient terms to repay loans.
15. Carbon credit pooling for neighborhood, community, district, province/state/, Country projects.
16. Carbon sink development and protection, conservation, expansion project lending and incentives
17. People and projects which go over budget must be given lower priority/delayed purchasing power than those whom are getting their basic needs met. This needs to be phased in and scaled.

Avoid 1C of warming and take 1C of cooling

We could reverse 2’C of warming and avoid 2’C total of warming by having hydroxyl radicals working to remove reactive GHGs according to a couple of peer reviewed papers. I have dug deep to locate what gives the most accurate picture of what we can do with hydroxyl radicals.

Table 3 shows that 2’C of warming to 2100 can be removed with reactive GHG controls 2010-2100. Extra triggered methane problems of 1’c are dealt with also.

2C cooling table

(Arctic methane, Elena Dyupina a & Andre van Amstel a Journal of integrative environmental sciences.)

Figure 3 shows that a full degree of warming can be removed along with the reactive GHG removals.

According to peer reviewed science, we can reverse the 1’C we have now, and reverse any additional warming impact up to about a degree. This technology can be deployed now.

Methane warming of 6 celsius within 80 years a peer reviewed exercise

A study of the effects for the original hypothesis, based on a coupled climate–carbon cycle model assessed a 1000-fold (from <1 to 1000 ppmv) methane increase—within a single pulse, from methane hydrates (based on carbon amount estimates for the PETM, with ~2000 GtC), and concluded it would increase atmospheric temperatures by more than 6 °C within 80 years. Further, carbon stored in the land biosphere would decrease by less than 25%, suggesting a critical situation for ecosystems and farming, especially in the tropics.

Atsushi Obata; Kiyotaka Shibata (June 20, 2012). “Damage of Land Biosphere due to Intense Warming by 1000-Fold Rapid Increase in Atmospheric Methane: Estimation with a Climate–Carbon Cycle Model”. J. Climate25 (24): 8524–8541. Bibcode:2012JCli…25.8524Odoi:10.1175/JCLI-D-11-00533.1.

National Science Foundation: 22 degrees F (12’C) in 50 years found in ice core, 11,700 years ago

HOWEVER

“Because gas hydrates globally sequester such a large amount of methane at depths that are shallow compared to those associated with conventional gas, even reputable publications sometimes posit that warming climate will lead to catastrophic breakdown of global gas hydrate deposits and the subsequent injection of the released methane into the atmosphere. Our review underscores the implausibility of such scenarios. The spatial distribution of climate-susceptible gas hydrates, the strong sinks that consume much of the methane released from gas hydrate breakdown before the gas reaches the atmosphere, and the thermodynamic barriers to runaway gas hydrate breakdown all argue against strong synergy between gas hydrates and the climate system. In fact, we estimate that seafloor emissions of hydrate-derived methane (most of which never reaches the atmosphere) is dwarfed by annual carbon dioxide emissions to the atmosphere from anthropogenic sources.”

This still leaves the question “What could cause abrupt warming that is not methane?”

We have to face up to the methane removal problem

When it comes to the 10 year window to 1.5C we have to face up to the prospect that 1.5C of warming will trigger between 50 and 500GT methane fully out of the Arctic. As for methane arresting technology, I suggest that given the data, no half measures in dealing with this problem, will suffice. We have to scale up technology to address this problem, or face certain death. I realize that people feel they have too much adversity with climate damages in January of 2019 already, but if we do not scale up, we will have the end of the world as Dr. Guy Mcpherson teaches. Here is a video of his below.

What the hydroxyl radical does for an air shed

If a community is emitting OH* it is empowering its citizens with high air quality and fighting climate change!

When OH* is high, the air quality includes helpful chemical activity that is not widely known. The aerosols in the air shed are attached to, made heavier and more water soluble, this both removes them by dry deposition and makes them easier to remove by rain, and the OH* attaches to aerosols of all sizes so it has a full spectrum benefit. The PM is made heavier and removed more quickly and the visibility of the PM as haze is reduced and air clarity is enhanced while reducing the health hazard.

Because PM is lowered there is a corresponding small increase in night time heat loss from the air shed, as exiting long wave radiation is less interfered with by the combination of particulate and methane molecules. Greenhouse gases like methane and synthetic GHGs are removed, contributing to localized cooling effects, particularly at night. The impact of this in well mixed air is an 81ppm reduction in the 480 ppm CO2 e warming we currently have on the planet.

GHG removal contributes to the global GHG reduction needed to fight climate change, If we were emitting OH* everywhere, we could lower the planetary temperature by 0.5’C by removing the root cause, not “masking” the problem.

Aged VOC aerosols are whitened and may contribute to cloud brightening or albedo. Black carbon is also lightened in color or brightened.

6% of the OH* will enhance the carbonate buffering system of the clouds, increasing the cloud’s ability to rain out CO2 from the air and have it permanently weathered in the soils.

Odor causing molecules and gases are either made heavier and removed or chemically altered by oxidation and neutralized.

OH* can mix into an inversion layer, react with the aerosols and make rainfall more likely closer to the air shed, which cleans the local air further. It may shorten the lifetime of the inversion layer formations and make the air quality problem associated with them improve by helping aerosols become efficient cloud condensation nuclei, enter the cloud formation more readily, helping clouds more effectively scavenge pollution particles.

Urban air shed ozone levels are lowered.

Mercury, metals, and particles like asbestos are oxidized and removed by wet and dry deposition.

Smoke particle removal will be enhanced.

Industrial emissions of acids, carbon monoxide from vehicles and black carbon will be more oxidized and removed.

OH* recycles in the presence of Nox from combustion, so after release it can go on to protect the wider atmosphere for extended times.

Local Community Based Greenhouse Gas Removal Services Becoming a Reality

If the current man made greenhouse gases and methane were removed from the air, humanity would lower the global temperature by half a degree Celsius.

There is a technology which can emit the hydroxyl radical, whose formula is OH* on a large scale to do this. This OH* is lighter than water in air and floats along with the wind until it can react with one of the greenhouse gases and remove them. About half of the OH* put in the air meets with these gases.

When the OH* is made by the technology, it starts with one oxygen radical, an O*. This O* makes contact with water and forces the water to react and make two OH*.

The formula is O* + H2O→ 2OH*

In this way an oxygen-like OH is doubled, which makes the process much more effective and efficient.

Scientists have learned that this common molecule does over 90% of all of atmospheric cleansing but the synthetic greenhouse gases have components called halogens which require enhanced levels of OH to be removed or extra time to be exposed to OH* to be removed. We need to get the global temperature down as quickly as possible now or we face reaching more deadly tipping points from which it will be very hard or impossible to recover and this approach can definitely help.

Using solar powered technology we can produce the hydroxyl radical and send it into the air where this natural cleanser will be strengthened and remove the more potent gases which cause global warming. These gases are very much the culprits that cause worsened forest fires, floods, droughts and heat waves and we are told that we are going to experience worse impacts in these disasters in 2019.

While we are all working to reduce our dangerous GHG emissions, we need to be building technology and methods to remove GHGs from the atmosphere to protect everyone. We are all in danger of suffering from some form of disaster caused by global warming climate damages and we need to take real action to dramatically increase greenhouse gas removal.

Greenhouse gas arrester technology is a real action that can be taken to remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere and your community can put it to work for you so that you can do your part in reversing climate damages. GC Green Carbon Inc can work with your local government to put the hydroxyl radical to work reducing the whole community’s greenhouse gases, and leave the air quality higher at the same time, including providing odor reduction. Hydroxyl radicals are FDA approved for indoor use and because they are found in nature, they are considered helpful and harmless. Putting more of them to work in the air would only be logical. The provincial and federal governments will pay part of the costs of building the technology, and further, can pay an incentive for GHG removal work from the carbon tax.

Carbon taxes need to fund negative emissions technologies

Oct 2018 EMERGENCY DEBATE on Climate Change in the Canadian House of Commons.
Do Canadians prefer that Climate Change be reversed with technology instead of taking home a carbon tax rebate? The carbon tax could be used to pay for GHG removal and start to get us out of this predicament.

The definition of public infrastructure must grow

David Suzuki never quite says it but it needs to be said this way…air, water, soil and photosynthesis all are the infrastructure of biological life and need to be managed as a global commons on a global scale as public infrastructure. The sooner we get policy around this infrastructure globally, the better. Then we can also begin to remove greenhouse gases from the air with technology, pursue water issues, soil issues, and living carbon removal and storage with plants. It would be a start.

 

High emitting individuals need to be CO2 regulated

We all face this dilemma- whose CO2 emissions are justified? Right now the only emissions that are justified, to be honest, are those expended in creating a net negative emissions trend. Negative emissions activities need to be rewarded while all others are reduced to an across the board liability.

This is why the cost of carbon should be very high- it is very costly. Note this graph of emitters: whom are spread throughout the world in many countries.

The great equalizer is that the richest 10% are no more important than anyone else, nor are their emissions. Income is the only determinant of emissions which are an existential threat to humanity. We can only hope to change this with an individual tradable emissions permit system and a whole new standard and metrics system for justifying emissions. Governments must immediately target the highest income brackets in each country, and create large fines for cheaters. To delay this policy is to shortchange society a 30% reduction in individual prerogative CO2 emissions, which is a significant amount of reduction in lifestyle emissions.

We also need to charge for past emissions which contributed to the past 60 years of climate damages, removing some of the wealth that was stolen early on in this crisis, and it was stolen. It needs to be reinvested in negative emissions technologies, the opposite impact is now the most vital on Earth.

We need a combination of a hydroxyl radical release program and solar geoengineering funded right away to cool the planet and remove emissions, with direct CO2 capture/removal and afforestation and rock dust dispersal scaled up to around 10 billion Tonnes a year, while halting growth.

IF this is not attempted, the planet will not be habitable. We are bringing in this for our children:

All techniques to remove GHG and heat are now needed

We did it, after COP 24 we now know we are on the worst global warming path for a few more years at least. That means an 8C scenario trajectory is what we are on and the confidence is high that we have committed to 4C for certain, even if we act fast. We are going to need solar geoengineering, direct GHG removal, dispersed GHG removal, rock dust absorption, marine cloud brightening, cirrus cloud removal, CO2 capture and storage, renewables, ocean remediation, and afforestation.

We need to call for a global operations headquarters to be a clearinghouse for these Global Cooling operations, and to ensure immediate funding. This would be the only global commons that needs global protection and cooperation because if we do not do this, we are brokering our extinction. We need to ask for these techniques to be treated as an emergency need at the local and international levels now.

Scientific blindness in a few leaders is a real condition, it is a mental deficiency and sometimes a criminal neglect. We need to sideline these people immediately. Of course the most wealthy countries are going to have trouble admitting that they consume too much, of course, but they need to address the stark alternative.

Non toxic Cirrus cloud removal

The aerosols (particles) that make up the persistent cirrus clouds above the aviation routes in the sky are trapping heat instead of precipitating out or clearing because they overload the atmosphere’s cleaning mechanism. If we dispersed oxygen radicals or hydroxyl radicals there, they would oxidize or “age” the particles, making them larger and more water soluble which makes them removable by deposition. Geoengineering proposals are generally more toxic, so if we could shift away from always choosing toxic methods in the environment this would be preferable.

NASA explains the hydroxyl radical but lulls you into complacency

Please look at NASA’s teaching on the hydroxyl radical and see my comments below:

https://phys.org/news/2018-11-greenhouse-gas-detergent-recycles-atmosphere.amp

All scientific knowledge on it points to our reliance on the hydroxyl radical. Ronald Prinn et al write extensively on it here Evidence_for_variability_of_atmospheric_hydroxyl_r (1) and project a 14% reduction in the radical by 2100, but that was done in 2007, before the Arctic permafrost methane problem was identified.

We have to update the importance of the hydroxyl radical as quickly as possible, so that we are ensuring that if we need to, we can restore this mechanism, or, if need be, enhance it so that it reduces the concentration of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere as these gases overwhelm our system. Hydroxyl radicals in some excess cause absolutely no harm, a claim that can rarely be made with natural systems and this sets the cooling -and cleaning opportunity that OH* represents far apart from geoengineering.

We cannot afford to take the hydroxyl radicals, nor the atmosphere’s complete oxygen system for granted, and NASA scientists have not seen the opportunity that lies within this natural group of compounds.

GC Green Carbon Inc on its Emergency Methane Arresters

Logo (1)

GC Green Carbon Inc. Executive Summary

We envision fully counteracting the now coming “Hothouse Earth” disaster with our Oxygen based technology. Humanity has now “baked in” to its atmospheric infrastructure a 3’C warming by 2050 according to the 2018 IPCC Assessment Report, which means unprecedented fire, flood and drought disasters around the globe. Cambridge University teaches that the global methane emergency will cost 60 Trillion for 50 GT of released methane, which is 1090 times the cost to remediate it if we do it soon. To achieve this world-changing vision, we are leading with a high quality methane and multiple greenhouse gases destruction technology based on a plasma membrane. Funds gained from the Emergency Methane Arrester technology, will give GC Green Carbon Inc. the resources it needs to help preserve the planetary system, and this will have significant implications for solving environmental problems from CO2 gas buildup, and achieving sustainable development in the modern world as we help avert potential human extinction.

Our strategy will include meeting the emergency need for cutting greenhouse gases now found in the free atmosphere by aggressively dispersing hydroxyl radicals along with thermal-oxidative destruction of all species found in ordinary air, which supplies the oxygen for the hydroxyl radicals. Viva Cundliffe, M Sc, founder, experienced engineer and innovator, is leading the introduction of the Emergency Methane Arresters to the market.

The company’s technology can form the basis of a global cooling contingency plan using its oxygen products, and is presently disseminating this plan to governments urgently. Oxygen based cooling in the fossil records is the only known global warming reversal agent. Even aerosol spraying is known to be a stopgap measure which will only mask global warming 1.0’C and not ultimately get to the root of the problem- greenhouse gases. For every mitigation dollar spent, the Province of British Columbia has calculated that six dollars of losses are saved. At GC Green Carbon we think that funds invested in countering the Hothouse Earth will save humanity from likely extinction as the Arctic methane release is going to cause several accelerating climate warming feedbacks and humanity needs global scale methane destruction capacity. If we don’t prepare and begin removing the scheduled 50GT of free methane which is leaking into the atmosphere, everyone on Earth is going to suffer with a terrible desertification, food web collapse, famine, and more climate refugees (1 in 9 people) than can be managed safely with up to a 5.8’C temperature rise. Globally children in all countries are going to bear the brunt of the disaster. (AMEG, IPCC) The company will set up a pilot plant system for a year to 15 months and then go on to break even in year 2 month 6 after the pilot project, planning to build 3,300 Methane Arrester units in tandem scaled up arrays within six to nine years. https://emergency-methane-release-arresters.business.site/?m=true

Using Oxygen is the only serious way to remove runaway methane

Any other method of cooling will not be lasting. As shown here, even in the Ordovician, Oxygen was used up in oxidizing methane to CO2, left lowered oxygen levels, High CO2 levels and a 1’C warmer temperature than present day. If we are going to remove methane, we are going to use up our oxygen; this cannot be stopped. The runaway methane event now underway could be shortened and oxygen conserved with the use of a separation membrane that cleaves O2 and releases the atomic oxygen to go and react with water so that it can do even more. The O atom reacts with water, forming 2OH, providing a free doubling of oxygen. Using the OH magnification, and the shorter route to destruction that is offers, makes the process twice as effective and it uses only 3O2 net, or 30%, rather than 10 O2 net without help. No where else will there be such an opportunity to conserve oxygen while going through a methane emergency. Nowhere else will there be an opportunity to shorten the lifetime of methane as well. Oxygen has been there doing this since the beginning.

No one is serious unless they are talking about using hydroxyl radicals to combat the methane release. We cannot rely upon the private sector to pay for this measure either. It will have to be paid for by governments. Thankfully compared to many project budgets, it is not that expensive. The problem is that we are in an emergency situation and we absolutely should not wait for the Paris Climate agreement. The longer we wait, the more damage will be left from the delays.

Basic Oxygen and oxidation Chemistry for the Methane Emergency part one

In order to oxidize methane it takes ten oxygen molecules ten years -normally- in the atmosphere. With a methane blowout we will want to shorten the time to methane destruction by putting up there the main oxidant that removes methane. In addition to airlifting oxygen molecules, there are two other options we should consider: airlifting atomic oxygen or hydroxyl radicals. Either of these will perform a faster oxidation of methane: shortened for brevity:

  1. CH4 + OH =CH3 +H2O, CH3 +OH = CH2 + H2O,
  2. CH2 + 2OH = C + 2H2O
  3. C + 2OH + O= CO2 + H2O

This chemistry uses the O from an O2 once, and the rest of the oxidation remains direct with OH. The OH can be a radical OH* or a negative or positive ion in the case of manufactured OH.

In the step where sunlight naturally excites molecular oxygen and splits it into positive atomic O1D ions, this atomic oxygen will either react to form ozone, O3, or react with water to form 2 OH radicals:

4. O1D +H2O = 2OH*

As we can see from this, the formation of two oxidant OH* would be very helpful as it changes the water oxygen into a scrubbing hydroxyl radical, effectively doubling the oxygen in play as the key oxidant. It would be very good to airlift this O atom and have it meet water molecules and form OH as it bypasses the time involved for the Sun to split molecular oxygen, engage in competing chemistry, and form OH. It is much more direct in addressing methane to make it and release it.

Taking OH that is made at ground in water is also an option. The oxygen is more dilute, but the water needed is brought into contact with the O atoms quickly, in the interests of time. The OH in water is airlifted and sprayed.

We are going to need to address methane as it is escaping at dangerous levels now. There are no known negative side effects from releasing natural (in situ) oxidants to the environment. The oxidants will remove all greenhouse gases but water and CO2, which will bring a significant amount of cooling as their levels are lowered from today’s levels.

 

 

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.
