Climate Change

Climate Change

The New Year has brought many challenges to those who are ill. According to scientists from around the globe, the Earth is warming up. Reports state that glaciers and ice caps are melting causing the sea level to rise. The weather is changing. We are still experiencing seasons, but each season's weather is changing. At least it feels like it is changing.

There are many people who deny the phenomenon of global warming. Many international and national agencies have compiled data from 1880 to the present, and there is no disputing that the global average surface temperatures have risen about 1 degree centigrade since that year. Global warming is real. The strongest of the warming activity is at Earth's Polar Regions. At the same time, there has been a dramatic rise in the carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels in the last century. The data is accurate and the majority of the scientists across the world believe that the increasing carbon dioxide levels are directly influencing the global change in temperature.

From what I have read, there are several climate change models that have been proposed connecting carbon emissions to climate change. Model projections have been summarized indicating that during the next hundred years the global surface temperatures are expected to increase between 0.3 to 1.7 °C (0.5 to 3.1 °F) for their smallest emissions scenario and 2.6 to 4.8 °C (4.7 to 8.6 °F) for extreme emissions scenario. The models differ greatly because the factors involved are complex and difficult to predict. Nature is unpredictably unpredictable.

Many scientists claim that future climate warming temperature's associated impacts will differ from area to area around the globe. As a result of warming global temperatures, precipitation will change, and deserts will expand in the subtropical regions. Land masses will experience the greatest warming, oceans less so and the greatest increase will be at the Arctic Pole. Glaciers, permafrost and sea ice will thaw, reducing their size dramatically. Frequent extreme weather events including heat waves, droughts, heavy rainfall with floods and heavy snowfall are expected. The oceans will acidify. Some species will succumb to extinction due to higher temperature regimes and changes in the ocean's pH.

Many authorities project that man's food security will be threatened by crop yields decreasing. People will abandon many coastal areas because of rising sea levels. The global climate system maintains a substantial inertia. Greenhouse gases will remain in the atmosphere for tens of thousands of years. At this point, scientists have no idea about how to reduce them once they are deposited in the heavens.

So what do these predictions have to do with our health? Everything. Although I have no scientific data to back up my observations over thirty years of practicing medicine, I have witnessed many changes in the health of my patients due to swings in barometric pressure and seasonal change.

Aside from the obvious potential for increasing starvation in large areas of the world, clean fresh water will become less available, ultimately making it one of our most invaluable resources.

Large barometric swings due to extreme weather change will exacerbate arthritic conditions and autoimmune diseases, chronic active infections will become common with no cure available, and viral mutations in pigs and birds will bring about flu pandemics that will be resistant to vaccines, even though big pharma will encourage large populations to be inoculated with multiple strains of both influenza A and B mutated strains. To this date, no one has patented the method by which flu vaccines work. Although there have been many to speculate the mechanism, it has not been scientifically proven.

One of the most important processes for mankind's health has been to sanitize water. Water contains minerals of all kinds. Distilled water, although the purest water possible, has no healing or life giving effects. The molecular structure of water has been identified as H2O, however water is much more than a simple molecule. When H2O molecules are connected together, there is a fractal relationship between the molecules that defies scientific study. Some believe the formula of water is actually H3O2. Once minerals are added to water, ions are created. These positively and negatively charged ions perform functions on a cellular and sub-cellular level that keep us healthy. Pure spring water needs no enhancements to be healthy for you. I do not think that it is a coincidence that bottled water consumption in our society has exponentially increased and so has the rise of cancer in all of its forms and other significant diseases. Literally, it is in the water.

Once the climate changes and the ice caps melt, acid rain pollutes our environment, the water that exists today will become extinct, the new water will have a distinctly negative footprint on our health. In the future, drinking sanitized freshwater will induce diseases of all variations. Cancer will continue to emerge without a cure because its origin will remain a mystery due to the complexities of nature's effects on man. Nature is unpredictably unpredictable.

Man has a linear cognitive construction. Disease is fractal and is tied to climate change. Bottom line: We do not want the Earth to warm up another tenth of one degree Celsius.

So if you think climate change is a joke, a conspiracy, a hoax or political football, think again. Climate change is real and your grandchildren and their grandchildren's future depends on what we do as a collective to mitigate the effects of carbon dioxide on our planet. What do you have to lose if nothing is done? Everything.

On second thought, the planet might just be better off if humans became extinct because people are predictably unpredictable.
