A PREDICTION: Expect MORE pseudo-scientific Bogus/VooDoo - - CO2 sequestration - - to come from the special carbon Interests/Industries. PART I: the problem, PART II: the solution(s).

Overview:“We don’t want to cause mass-hysteria,” is often quoted as an excuse for preventing the warnings from GW scientists - - like the Arctic Methane Emergency Group’s warning of the coming earth catastrophe - - to reach the people.
Result: This lulling-in of the population, together with oil-industry-planted BOGUS arguments, resulted in delays, counterproductive measures (Chemtrail), and a, essentially GW-worsening, approach to the - REAL – problem.
With methane-dictated deadlines now even confirmed by NASA, and as early as September of 2015, the nations of this world are scrambling to find answers; even the Pope emphasized the greed-based severity of the - constantly accelerating - problem.. How severe is the situation? Read, and watch, magnificently presented by Dane Wigington of Geoengineeringwatch.org: http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/planetary-meltdown-from-formerly-frozen-methane-if-you-are-not-alarmed-you-should-be/?inf_contact_key=df30eb8487dd1ebe2dfe797c82b0cf5865c911467002e4c8f2403d6024ebe75a
The BOGUS/VooDoo pseudo-science of CO2 sequestration - - obviously to, again, continue usage of these destructive, out-dated, dinosaur carbon fuels, delay implementation of CO2-free energy projects, and maintain carbon profits- - was/is outlined in PART I of this post; we retained the text.

If you are familiar with PART I, scroll down to **** PART II ****.

PART I: The pseudo-scientific VooDoo of CO2 sequestration.
Washington Post: The fossil-fuel industry’s campaign to mislead the American people: http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/the-fossil-fuel-industrys-campaign-to-mislead-the-american-people/2015/05/29/04a2c448-0574-11e5-8bda-c7b4e9a8f7ac_story.html
“Fossil fuel companies and their allies are funding a massive and sophisticated campaign to mislead the American people about the environmental harm caused by carbon pollution.”
“Their activities are often compared to those of Big Tobacco denying the health dangers of smoking. Big Tobacco’s denial scheme was ultimately found by a federal judge to have amounted to a racketeering enterprise.”
“The Big Tobacco playbook looked something like this: (1) pay scientists to produce studies defending your product; (2) develop an intricate web of PR experts and front groups to spread doubt about the real science; (3) relentlessly attack your opponents.” More - - -
In a financial reality analysis - - total fines to the tobacco industry $ 243 billion - -The tobacco settlement penalized smokers, not big tobacco. http://www.press.uchicago.edu/Misc/Chicago/857476.html

AND NOW THEY ARE ON THEIR WAY TO DO IT AGAIN! When it comes to reducing CO2 amounts in the atmosphere, the CO2-producing interests - - oil, coal, gas, cement - - will tell us that sequestering (collecting CO2, and pumping it underground) is the answer.

We have it on good (inside) authority that the carbon industry is preparing a very extensive publication - - almost a book, with pretty pictures and more unscientific BS/BOGUS you could ever think of - - pushing CO2 Sequestration.
Think of sequestration - - collecting CO2, and pumping it underground - - as Earth Castration!

They’ll quote you an energy Department project: http://breakingenergy.com/2015/04/23/in-milestone-energy-department-projects-safely-and-permanently-store-10-million-metric-tons-of-carbon-dioxide/?utm_source=Breaking+Energy&utm_campaign=aba29d0400-RSS_EMAIL_CAMPAIGN&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_f852427a4b-aba29d0400-408752541

Well, Halllujah! But they fail to tell you that
a) The total annual world CO2 production is 37 billion metric tons; you do the math! At 1 million tons per depository - - 370,000 in total/year - - spread out over this globe, this should guarantee you to be very close to one of those time bombs.
b) According to a detailed analysis by the International Energy Agency (EA), CO2 sequestering is a short-term solution that requires lots of energy (producing more CO2), and with potential disastrous consequences.
c) Compressed into a liquid so it can be injected into the ground– is a step that typically consumes 20 per cent of the energy yielded by burning coal in the first place. Then you need more energy to drill a hole, ¾ of a mile deep, and more energy to pump the poison into the ground. Wow! What they won’t do to keep burning carbon fuels and, naturally, TO MAINTAIN CARBON PROFITS/RIPOFFS.
d) But the ground under those synfuels plants is usually rock-formation that is not suitable for CO2 deposits. So, you have to build pipelines to pump it to a suitable location. In the example of the N-Dakota plant (below, next paragraph) the gas is transported by pipeline to an old oil field 250 miles away - - minimum $ 1.3 million per mile to build the pipeline.

These underground CO2 storage areas must be monitored at all times; they are true TIME BOMBS! CO2 is much heavier than air, and earthquakes directly connected to global warming (GW), can kill. The largest recent disaster caused by CO2 occurred in 1986, in Cameroon, central Africa. A volcanic crater-lake known as Nyos belched bubbles of CO2 into the still night air and the gas settled around the lake's shore, where it killed 1800 people and countless thousands of animals.

Let’s look at one key example: The Great Plains Synfuels plant in North Dakota produces synthetic natural gas from lignite coal. Since 2000, the facility also has been capturing CO2 from the “synthesis gas” (an intermediate product), compresses it, and transports it 300 kilometers by pipeline to the Weyburn oil field. There the flow of CO2, currently about 8,000 tons per day, is injected into the oil field.

With the global annual CO2 emissions at 37 billion metric tonnes - http://co2now.org/Current-CO2/CO2-Now/global-carbon-emissions.html - to suggest that more than half of this amount - - minimum 60% reduction required to shift earth’s balance towards recovery - - could be sequestered each year demonstrates – again – unrealistic bogus pseudo-science that we see so frequently coming from the carbon industry. http://drexel.edu/now/news-media/releases/archive/2013/December/Climate-Change .

CONCLUSION: CO2 sequestering: another pseudo-scientific unreality!

Need more facts, calculations? Here we go: • Important! Why Carbon Sequestration Won't Save Us …

Much of this is - -not “as we see it,” but confirmed with science facts - - connected to the VooDoo of Chemtrails/SRM (Solar Radiation Management):
A clear and present danger: A NO-RETURN EARTH-CATASTROPHE BY SEPTEMBER 2015
http://www.expertclick.com/NRWire/Releasedetails.aspx?id=68275
and
Unusual, symptoms in airline passengers – inflammation, allergies, flu-like - connected to the toxins in Chemtrail/SRM spray

How does this connect to the science of Anti-Aging?
According to Cheraskin/Kugler Life-Long Health - least rate of aging, telomere-length maintenance - is defined as a state of homeostasis, achieved by correctly applying the essential health modalities. http://www.DrHans.org



**** PART II ****: CO2-FREE ENERGY ALTERNATIVES GALORE: What we can/must do to, effectively, REDUCE CO2 levels in the atmosphere.

Presently the entire energy use of this entire globe is about 14 Terawatts (TW).By 2050 – because of population growth to about 9.6 Billion - we will need a minimum of 30 TW.

Energy technologies – worldwide – are limited:
Gas, oil, coal, combined (maximum oceans and trees can handle): 10 TW
Biomass, using every plant-growth trick in the book, the absolute
maximum we could squeeze out is 5 – 7 TW
Hydro-electric, Geothermal; maximum # of dams on every river: 1 TW
Wind; maximum # of turbines built wherever possible: 2 TW
Perfect conservation re. all of the above: possibly (don’t count on it) 2 TW
Maximum: total: 22 TW
30 minus 22 = 8
We would still need an additional 8 TW; in reality, most likely more! From where could we get it?
Answer: only solar is unlimited; solar with Hydrogen Technology is perfect.
With a priority effort - - to quickly bring CO2 down to acceptable levels, and prevent/delay the predicted earth catastrophe - - here is what needs to be done (preferentially by yesterday!).
1) CONSERVATION: THE # 1 needed action - - shown by RMI to reduce CO2 by 30% - - is CONSERVATION; a worldwide program to educate people about GREATLY reducing carbon fuel consumption will not only save lots of money, but it will also improveyour health ( - - by walking, or getting on a bicycle to cover small distances). For the entire list of possible actions visit http://www.RMI.org Part of conservation is also to reverse deforestation; plant a tree wherever possible:
************************ photosynthesis
Trees: H2O +CO2 ——————- Carbohydrates
Get personally involved, become an environmental activist, and expose and demand the termination of Chemtrail spraying; the chemicals in the sprays - - Aluminum, Barium, Strontium, others, are toxic – kill – to trees, and induce diseases in people (Alzheimers, Autism, inflammation, allergies, more).

2) Besides utilizing all (limited) CO2-free sources of energy (Hydro-electric, wind, geothermal), place a special effort on PHOTOVOLTAICS because it is unlimited and essential to hydrogen technology. Be part of the solution; consider this a personal challenge: If you have a house, or company, install PV (PhotoVoltaics, solar panels). This is not only an excellent way of saving energy costs, but it will save you even more when you get to the next step, buying an electric car; charging an EV with your own electricity costs as little as $ 2.86 to drive 100 miles.
Get personally involved, and help to eliminate/terminate Chemtrail spraying; this pseudo-scientific VooDoo reduces solar panel output, and it kills – trees - our first line of defense against CO2.

3) Electric cars: Our biggest potential to lower CO2 production is in transportation; airplane companies have done a magnificent job in improving fuel efficiency.But car manufacturers, with only few exceptions, like Tesla, are still under the influence of the oil industry, producing expensive, gimmicks-loaded, farces of EVs; - - see the example of the (nearly 20 years ago) EV-1, praised as “the automotive miracle of the century,” and terminated due to the influence by the oil companies; see the SONY overview/video “who killed the electric car.” http://www.sonyclassics.com/whokilledtheelectriccar/presskit.pdf .
We need an inexpensive electric Volkswagen equivalent for the masses, with no expensive gimmicks - - crank the windows up and down, adjust seats, manually - - that everybody can afford.

4) Hydrogen technology; hydrogen cars.Combining PV and electric applications – is already demonstrated/applied as THE clean energy system for industry, homes, and hydrogen cars. Here is how – extremely simple – it works:
a) PV panels produce electricity.
b) This electricity feeds electrical applications, from EVs to heating/cooling; anything that needs a clean source of energy, and 100% CO2-free.
c) Some of the electricity is used to take water – H2O – apart into hydrogen and oxygen.
d) The hydrogen is stored – low pressure containers; simple technology.
e) When electricity is needed at night, or to fuel the electric motors in a hydrogen car - - hydrogen, fed into a “Fuel Cell,” gives back electricity and H2O, thus going past the range limit of an EV. In essence, hydrogen cars are electric cars, with the electricity coming from a fuel cell instead of a battery.
The # 1 genius who is behind many of the applications - - including water purification while producing clean electricity - - is Professor Dan Nocera, previously MIT, now at Harvard University. https://vimeo.com/8194089 .

5) Soil as Carbon Storehouse: New Weapon in Climate Fight, BY JUDITH D. SCHWARTZ 04 MAR 2014: ANALYSIS. YALE U. SCHOOL OF FORESTRY
The degradation of soils from unsustainable agriculture and other development has released billions of tons of carbon into the atmosphere. But new research shows how effective land restoration could play a major role in storing CO2 and slowing climate change. http://e360.yale.edu/feature/soil_as_carbon_storehouse_new_weapon_in_climate_fight/2744
Soil in a long-term experiment appears red when depleted of carbon (left) and dark brown when carbon content is high (right).
From the former North American prairie, to the North China Plain, and even the parched interior of Australia, have immense capacity to store carbon; has a tremendous capacity to help put carbon back into the soil.

View “before” and “after” photos of holistic land management: http://www.regeneratinggrassland.com/2014/04/before-and-after-photos-of-holistic.html

And there are others; just GOOGLE “CO2-free sources of energy.” Here are just a few more examples and, remember, when the carbon industry tries to BS you with CO2-sequestration (earth castration), it really is to maintain carbon profits, and with out-dated, dinosaur carbon fuels:

When VW released the European fuel economy ratings for its new, limited-production XL1 passenger car last summer, you could almost hear the automotive world’s collective jaw drop. The XL1 came in at a staggering 313 miles per Imperial gallon of diesel. That’s the efficiency equivalent of more than 230 miles per U.S. gallon of gasoline.

Very informative article on the prediction of these environmental effects. When the science is being paid for by Big Coal, one should question the nature of the studies. Dr. Kugler is transparent is his assessments and I applaud him for his great work. I look forward to reading his follow-up post on the special interests. Thanks Dr. Kugler

Bouncing up:

For a complete overall view: Combining Part I (THE PROBLEM; special interest pseudo-science, CO2-sequestration) with PART II (THE SOLUTIONS), thus taking the wind out of the carbon industry's VooDoo sails.
