Oh…. Earth is Haunted!
September 29, 2009 2 Comments
I’ve ever been open minded with analytical views. I’ve published some of my previous posts on global warming advocacy that were mainly dealing with actions required against global warming and actions what we are taking against global warming. And all this lead me to conclude that Earth is haunted. Daily new datas are being publicized supporting climate change, many organisations are working for against global warming, yet why is it happening?
More recently data provided by one of the NASA satellite was hypnotic. It is obvious to view increasing ozone hole in that report. The report looks something like below.
The annual ozone hole has started developing over the South Pole, and it appears that it will be comparable to ozone depletions over the past decade. This composite image from September 10 depicts ozone concentrations in Dobson units, with purple and blues depicting severe deficits of ozone.
“We have observed the ozone hole again in 2009, and it appears to be pretty average so far,” said ozone researcher Paul Newman of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. “However, we won’t know for another four weeks how this year’s ozone hole will fully develop.”

Scientists are tracking the size and depth of the ozone hole with observations from the Ozone Monitoring Instrument on NASA’s Aura spacecraft, the Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment on the European Space Agency’s ERS-2 spacecraft, and the Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet instrument on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s NOAA-16 satellite.
The depth and area of the ozone hole are governed by the amount of chlorine and bromine in the Antarctic stratosphere. Over the southern winter, polar stratospheric clouds (PSCs) form in the extreme cold of the atmosphere, and chlorine gases react on the cloud particles to release chlorine into a form that can easily destroy ozone. When the sun rises in August after months of seasonal polar darkness, the sunlight heats the clouds and catalyzes the chemical reactions that deplete the ozone layer. The ozone hole begins to grow in August and reaches its largest area in late September to early October.
Recent observations and several studies have shown that the size of the annual ozone hole has stabilized and the level of ozone-depleting substances has decreased by 4 percent since 2001. But since chlorine and bromine compounds have long lifetimes in the atmosphere, a recovery of atmospheric ozone is not likely to be noticeable until 2020 or later.

› What’s Holding Antarctic Sea Ice Back From Melting?
Once this so called dogma of ozone layer depletion or ozone hole, claimed to be decreasing but what this report reveals? There is another more recent report of NASA which clearly shows that ice caps are melting.

› Detail on Pine Island Glacier Researchers have used NASA’s Ice, Cloud and Land Elevation Satellite (ICESat) to compose the most comprehensive picture of changing glaciers along the coast of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets.
The new elevation maps show that all latitudes of the Greenland ice sheet are affected by dynamic thinning — the loss of ice due to accelerated ice flow to the ocean. The maps also show surprising, extensive thinning in Antarctica, affecting the ice sheet far inland. The study, led by Hamish Pritchard of the British Antarctic Survey in Cambridge, England, was published September 24 in Nature.
ICESat’s precise laser altimetry instrument, launched in 2003, has provided a high-density web of elevation measurements repeated year after year across the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets. With the dense coverage, the research team could distinguish which changes were caused by fast-flowing ice and which had other causes, such as melt.
The maps confirm that the profound ice sheet thinning of recent years stems from fast-flowing glaciers that empty into the sea. This was particularly the case in West Antarctica, where the Pine Island Glacier was found to be thinning between 2003 and 2007 by as much as 6 meters per year. In Greenland, fast-flowing glaciers were shown to thin by an average of nearly 0.9 meters per year.
both reports of NASA clearly shows how fast global warming is happening, yet there are many who supports proposed theory of global warming fake. They profess comments against global warming and proclaim that we need not to worry against global warming because It’s natural not anthropogenic and we can’t oppose or change nature. Oh…. But why? You can’t do better than sitting in your air conditioned office. It seems me that Earth is haunted and That’s why such “ghosts” are among us. We are even more aware about global warming than that in 1990s and That’s why it gonna happen? Ice caps are melting and ozone hole are increasing vastly boosting global warming is happening. What would be further in HAUNTED EARTH?
