Not doing an oxygen airlift is suicidal

How many degrees of demise will we allow if we have the power?

The New York Time magazine is coming out with a big spread tomorrow, August 1, entitled “Losing Earth”, about how policymakers have been aware as far back as the 1980’s that emissions were a climate problem, but did not act. Neighbors, friends, and family have now internalized how deep and steep the warming trajectory is ahead of us. We all know that we need an answer like an oxygen airlift to cleanse the culprit gases and reinstate the ozone layer at the same time.

The truth is, oxygen is the only answer we have ever had; it has been our maid and butler in the environment since it appeared on Earth. It makes toxins inert and removes unneeded junk everywhere it is applied. Its use and optimization is a staple of the environmental engineering profession for contaminated water and soil. In its forms of O2 and O3, and hydrogen peroxide it is prescribed to oxidize the vast majority of endangering pollution. Even in incineration, it is the exposure time to the oxygen of the combustion process which is maximized in standard operating procedures.

We need to take this to heart. We know we are missing oxygen at the level of the ozone layer and that synthetic greenhouse gases are building up there. Oxygen and Ozone both block ultraviolet radiation and cool the Earth, at this point we can model how well it does this by computer. We need to compel authorities to model this, and if it looks promising, they should do it. Expense, when compared to the degrees of demise we are all contemplating now, is going to be irrelevant either way.

Should we look to oxygen for its potential as a panacea as the environmental profession often does? Yes. I don’t see any other candidates. Do you?

Please share this article and teach others that oxygen is a tool to reduce global warming that triggered glaciation as known in the fossil record. It happens to be widely available, which we can produce in quantity and airlift to where it should do a lot of good.

A liquid oxygen airlift and dispersal at the lower stratosphere would address these six issues:

  1. Reduction and removal of synthetic greenhouse gases which are causing 80 ppm of CO2 equivalent warming to the planet.
  2. Ozone depleting substances removal or reduction.
  3. Thickening up the ozone layer, increasing needed UV protection by reducing the relative chlorine, fluorine and bromine fractions.
  4. Methane gas removal which appears to be becoming extremely urgent.
  5. Reduce acceleration of global warming and species extinction.
  6. Slow and may even reverse ice loss.

Help the Legal profession go global on climate harm legislation

Here is the press release and the letter written by West Coast Environmental Law this week, asking for the product liability that belongs with fossil fuel companies and their shareholders for climate harm, please enjoy and forward to your governments. It is time to set the right precedents and science can provide all the global and regional forensic harm data now as we see in the news regularly.

climate-related_harms_letter_to_prov_govt_draft8 (1)

Let’s see what Prime Minister Justin Trudeau does about this letter…perhaps we should all email him and other national heads? Maybe the UN and UNFCC would be happy to see this lead to a more ambitious climate target like performing and oxygen airlift to burn off some of our greenhouse gases.

Governments Should Subsidize the 90 fossil fuel companies to transition to renewables

We need to identify root causes.

Ordinary people are not the problem, 90 companies with the wrong products are. We need to tell them to transition us off of their deadly products into a more distributed economy running on renewables.

While we have Canada missing the farmers who could run solar and wind farms -while farming in Alberta like they do in Europe, Canadian taxpayers are financing the oil sands. Large scale policy shifts like this one are needed.

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2013/nov/20/90-companies-man-made-global-warming-emissions-climate-change

We have seen the costs of bulking up on high rises, energy, food production, and industry and are now living with the tradeoffs, to our imminent demise. The increasing conservation movement is leading to larger preserved areas that may fail completely as we experience our recent extinction event. All of our assets for life are on the line because of global warming caused mainly by the products of these corporations now. We now know this.

I am asking these companies to change their products as quickly as possible by investing in a renewables infrastructure urgently. Their circular economy which they rely upon, bulking up on high rises, energy, food production, and industry be changed to a distributed system. The concept of performance contracts for renewables can also be applied to designing less dense cities, downsize big steel, clean or carbon neutral energy, distributed smart, clean food production, and carbon neutral or negative industry. Their profit and financing models are too ambitious and are creating unrealistic iniquities with no effective benefits even to the grandiose profit takers doing this at the expense of our collective human existence.

This Saudi Prince made some real meaning happen with his fortune. He gave it away in an organized fashion. His charity will mean something in the long term if others in the same demographic pare down stagnant and unearned or non critical income focusing on CO2 intense products in the same fashion to power their lives, businesses and income on renewables:

The only way to help greed, money and wealth addictions is through consequences. The consequences from a frenetic paradigm of growth are in full swing and are going to increase. The beliefs around money range from believing that GOD blesses only those who can multiply money- as in the case of the biblical story of the talents; others believe that past lives of merit causes the wealthy to be chosen to those lives. On a small planet today, the bulked up enterprises and all of the imbalances in the ecology, income brackets and economies don’t look so divinely guided now. The industrial revolution banked on the combustion engine and brought us to danger. We all have to embrace what we face, and embrace the shift we are being confronted with. This moment in our time is critical as we face so much. The root causes of what has happened need to be very clear.

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).

Kinder Morgan Emissions will Further Damage the Ocean and Here is How to Repair it

Every Year, 84 million Tonnes of CO2 will be produced by Kinder Morgan as mobile emissions. The ocean is damaged by CO2 emissions but we can repair the damage by placing oxygen in the ocean at the rate of .4 million Tonnes per year at the going rate of $230/Tonne, which is $100 billion per year. The cost of oxygen would come down if the oil industry invested in the remediation technology itself…wait, maybe they should.

Where in the economy we pay for the repair to the emissions-caused damage is an important discussion to start. Fossil fuels have a large and generous profit model that is too large in today’s environmental situation. They can now consider themselves informed in advance that the emissions from their oil products cost money to clean up with real clean up operations.

If we are ever going to balance the climate we have to perform remedial chemistry which often gets swept under the rug. Now we see that we are being told to adapt, to lay down and adjust so that business profits as usual can continue. Scientists and policymakers know that this cannot continue. Every aspect of the fossil fuel industry should cost, according to our remediation company’s (GC Green Carbon Inc.) calculations, 25% more to have than it does now, so that the extra can be put aside to remedy the damages.

Will the big financiers ever meet this challenge? They never knew that the remedy to CO2 existed by oxygenating the oceans, which is our main CO2 sponge. Currently work is being undertaken to move this technology ahead. We need to look at how we will fund this ecosystem service in the future if we are going to create lasing cooling ability on the planet. Geoengineering is only a temporary stopgap because we all know that Mt. Pinatubo and other volcanoes only temporarily cooled the Earth. What truly cools is solving the physics problem of heat removal and oxygen did this 5 times over at the beginning of each ice age. It did it slowly, and in exquisite detail we see it in the fossil records.

There is an enabling technology that can make large quantities of oxygen, compress it into tanks and transport it to where it is needed. I suggest that we have to go with the proven cooling solution found in our planetary history. Oxygen destroyed the methane in the atmosphere which allowed the heat to escape. Why not do this again to save us from more starvation, war and possible extinction?

For All Kinder Morgan CO2 Emissions damages, four plants of this size (75 MW) could provide the oxygen for the ocean to repair the damage to it from those emissions.
