Dear Mr. Bernier:
Before offering an explanation for the growing extremes in weather--drought
in the West and torrential rains in the East--please consider my past
Completed undergraduate requirements at So. IL. University in two years,
cum laude. One semester I ace'd 24 hours of coursework. I completed a year
of organic chemistry in two months.
In the US Navy I scored a record high on the electronics final comprehensive
exam--basically a BEE degree w/o the social sciences.
In high school, I was self-supporting through working 40-50 hours per week
but on my college boards I scored 99% in Math, 97% in Science and 95% in
The enclosed filelisting of the documents composing the websegment on the
proposed drought/downpour phenomenon is almost 1000 pages. Please note redundnant
presence of major, respected primary news originators and communicators:
NASA, NYT, WSJ, WashPost, and government agencies.
I have other achievements but these focus on my strengths in the basic sciences
(electricity, chemistry and physics) which are essential to seeing the proposed
relationship Ironically, the relationship focuses on the rising levels of
CO2, arguing that long before global warming from rising CO2 kills us, the
dessicant (water-absorbing) properties of CO2 drastically alter the weather
patterns. Everyone knows about how CO2 soaks into water, e.g., pop, beer
and ocean sink. But no one has considered the water-philic impact of increasing
atmospheric CO2. It stands to reason that if you increase atmospheric CO2
that it will change precipitation characteristics which it does, e.g., dew
Rising CO2 molecularly binds water into globular clusters of either 35:1
or 156:1 ratios (water:CO2) which alters dew point and precipitation.
This is especially true downwind from major concentrated sources of CO2:
Oil fields: The burning or flaring of commercially useless natural gas releases
massive amounts of CO2 that act like a dessicant downwind.
The 1930's Dustbowl drought and encore 1950's Drought correlated with the
oil production rise and fall in the Texas oil fields, first East Texas and
then West Texas. Prevailing windpatterns over Texas explain why the Dustbowl
and Tornado Alley were the same. Blaming farming practices of the era misplaces
the primary cause of the duststorms.
The East African drought which has, like all droughts, caused massive human
upheavel can be correlated to the upwind oil production on the Arabian Peninusla.
Especially specific were the months when the drought went away in 1973-1974
the same months of the OPEC embargo which reduced Arabian oil production
by 75% to 95%. (I have numerous NASA space shots of the 1991 Gulf War burning
of Kuraiti oil wells with the smoke plumes curving to the southwest over
the Horn of Africa.)
Drought problems in the US Northwest can be correlated with the rising CO2
production from Alaska's Prudhoe Bay and Canadian production (Edmonton Oilers)
delivered to West via the Alberta Clipper. One of the best overlaps was a
picture of fire conditions in Western Canada ("Dugouts" from Canadian Government)
with a map showing Canadian oil production. Other foci are noted on enclosed
Forest fires: The massive release of CO2 from forest fires soaks up moisture.
CO2 has been used to clear fog-bound airports. The interesting thing to note
here is how the CO2 water-bound clusters have a different dew point as well
as become invisible. Satellite weather sequences show massive storm systems
developing out of the clear that have damaging winds and torrential rains
which is explained next. As a weatherman, think about it. Weren't you trained
to predict weather based on distant masses of moisture which you could see,
e.g., I watched with interest Isabel from the moment it appeared as a tropical
depression off the West African Coast, personally predicting a Mid-Altantic
(Virginia) track two days later. Now, in a sense, CO2 provides a "cloaking"
mechanism for moisture so that it suddenly appears without warning of impending
destruction like a StarTrek Romula war vessel (analogy for humor not serious
relationship). Increasingly, one hears weathermen saying they were surprised,
had no warning, or fit no computer models. Currently, computer modeling does
not include the CO2 drought/downpour matrix. The fastest computer in the
world adding up zeros still gets nothing.
I believe a chemical analysis of traditional small hail and current monster
hail would show a difference in the CO2 density as well as the presence of
the aforementioned high ratio CO2:H20 clusters. Furthermore, the recent additions
to climate satellites have the capacity to discern these properties if the
researchers consider the CO2 drought/downpour matrix. If they don't look
for the shift in any number of measurements, they won't discern it. Or course,
the oil companies will be like the tobacco companies, denying or delaying
public dissemination of the CO2 drought/downpour matrix.
The drought/downpour dynamics of higher CO2 means consequences more pressing
than global warming:
Water is soaked up --actually clustered up--immediately over and downwind
from massive source of CO2. The density of water in the atmosphere is greater
with the water bound in a higher energy state but its cloud forming
characteristics are altered.
When atmospheric conditions trigger the release of CO2 bound water, the released
water and energy per cubic meter is greater like the difference between a
hurricane that traversed over cold water versus over hot water. The greater
release of water and energy from the CO2 clusters accounts for the increase
in record bad weather beyond the immediate water absorption zone downwind
from a CO2 source.
In a sense, CO2 makes the atmosphere a bigger, more porous sponge which also
acts like a two-liter bottle of carbonated beverage. When the bottle or
atmosphere is shook or agitated, an explosive torrent results. As drought
can be seen downwind from all major CO2 sources so can torrential weather
be found beyond the drought envelope. In the envelope, the CO2 sponges up
the moisture until saturated.
As the CO2 levels rise, both the land and aquatic biomass becomes stressed
and diseased which reduces the conversion of CO2 to O2, e.g., the deadzones
developing in the Chesapeake Bay and global coastal areas. I think you can
see the vicious cycle of how humanity may have reached a critical mass in
CO2 levels: Independent of burning oil, humanity may have set in motion an
environmental meltdown that, independent of human activity, will increase
CO2. A stressed biomass, both land and aquatic, will convert less CO2 to
O2 which further stresses the biomass.
I am willing to couple uploading my website with a news report by you. I
have a 12-minute slideshow summary for people who don't want to wade through
the thesis. You can offer an on-line vote on what readers think as well as
offer to interview a few respondents. I'm sure your crew and you can apply
the modes of mass communication to this item of education and entertainment
better than me. Would not only make good topical news but add a weather feather
to your career bonnet.
If you want to contact me, please leave a message on a generic phone recorder
at 804-233-7541. Please leave your name and number at which you can be reached.
If I have not heard from you by Wednesday, July 21, I will assume you are
not interested. Please shred the material.
