A recent theory about the cause of global warming contradicts the received wisdom that greenhouse gases are to blame. The new theory attempts to show (by very convincing calculations) that an increase in pressure on the earth's mantel is to blame. The warming is caused internally as the earth is subjected to increased pressure on its surface by the increased population of obese humans.
Because the increased pressure is not uniform, the more frequent earthquake phenomenon is also explained. The rising of the oceans is actually caused by the subsidence of the shorelines from the increased populations found there.
7,000,000,000 X 200 lbs (today, avg. wt.) - 2,000,000,000 X 150 lbs (1940 baseline) = 1,400,000,000,000 lbs - 300,000,000,000 lbs. This is an increase of over 300 Trillion pounds on the earth's surface. The 1 Trillion pounds due to the weight of humanity is only the start. Housing and automobiles for these additional 5,000,000,000 people add a factor of 300!
This doesn't even take into consideration the weight of additional livestock, farm equipment, and WalMarts that the increased population requires.
The surface area of the earth is 200 million square miles. This 300 Trillion extra pounds works out to 1.5 million pounds per square mile! It should be starting to look like carbon dioxide has been getting a bum rap.
I don't know what the solution to Global Warming is (or won't say). But you can quit whining about renewable energy being the solution.
Al Gore was heard saying, "This theory beautifully lays the blame for global warming where it belongs - with fat Republicans."
