Editor;

I saw two programs recently on carbon emissions and global warming that most people will not know about because they don’t think outside of the box.

The first program was about volcanoes of which there are about a thousand around the world. Thirty of them are active. The others are dormant.  The emission of any one volcanic eruption puts more carbon, glass, and ash into the atmosphere in one day than all the other emissions throughout the world can pollute in a year.

The other program was on the science of astronomy, where we find how our planet operates in relation to the sun and moon and magnetic fields. 

One complete orbit of the sun and three hundred sixty five revolutions of our planet we call a year. Does this planet stay in the exact same orbit?  It takes a very long time to change, but it does.  There are two cycles during this change of orbit, a cooling cycle and a heating cycle.

Yes, we are in the global warming cycle which began in the 1600s, over 100 years before our Declaration of Independence in 1776. These cycles last about 500 years.

We are about 40 years away from completion of this warming cycle and then we will roll back into the 500 years of cooling.

As the astronomer said, we will have hurricanes, floods, volcanoes, earthquakes, fires, and drought. We can’t do anything about it. 

You can’t fool Mother Nature.
