The Earth’s climate, in the present “Ice Age”, not being stabilized from a much hotter state, is partially caused by carbon pollution accelerating climate destruction.
Changes of the Earth’s climate is due to a statistical distribution of weather patterns when that change lasts for an extended period of time (i.e., decades to millions of years). It is caused by factors such as living organism processes, variations in solar radiation received by Earth, plate movements in the oceans, and volcanic eruptions. Among other changes are certain human activities that have also been identified as significant causes of recent changes in climate (often referred to as “global warming”). However, there is a movement to refer to climate change/global warming as “Climate DeStabilization”. The terms “climate change” and “global warming” do not reflect the seriousness of the challenges humans face in their future.
Climate has always been changing, but now humanity has the ability to assist some of the changes…especially since the creation of pollution occurring, in part, by human activities. Throughout all of human existence in Earth, beginning millions of years ago, the change in climate was natural. Now it is different. Humans can control climate to some degree.
Recently, human activity, as opposed to Earth’s natural processes, have been used to partially describe changes in climate. Global warming, in some scientific journals, refers to surface temperature increases. For environmental policy, changes in climate now include global warming and everything else that affects the increase of greenhouse gas levels. Fluctuations over periods shorter than a few decades, such as El Nino, do not represent change in climate. El Nino represents climate variability or the distribution of glaciers and their outer edges rather than changes in climate.
A climate record, extending deep into the Earth’s past, has been assembled, and continues to be built up based on geological evidence from borehole temperature profiles, cores removed from deep accumulations of ice, floral and faunel records, glacial and edges of glacier processes, stable chemical nuclei and other analyses of sediment layers, and records of past sea levels. More recently, data are provided by instrumental records based on the physical sciences. Theoretical (possible and not factual) approaches are used to match past climate data, make future projections, and link causes and effects in the changes in climate.
Causes as a whole are determined by the energy received from the Sun and the rate at which the energy is lost to space. This determines the balanced temperature and climate of Earth. This energy is distributed around the globe by winds, ocean currents, and other mechanisms to affect the climates of different regions. “Forcing Mechanisms” of climate such as solar radiation variations, Earth’s orbit variations, variations in the reflectivity of the continents and oceans, the building up of mountains and continental drift, and changes in greenhouse gas concentration are factors that can shape climate.
Since 1978, instruments have measured the Sun and find the Sun does not appear to be totally responsible for the warming trend observed over the past thirty (30) years. A person may want to read the following 2007 report by NASA showing grafts and tables:

Forcing mechanisms can be either “internal” or “external”. Internal forcing mechanisms are natural processes within the climate system itself; e.g., circulation of the ocean water caused by its density which changes when warmed or cooled. External forcing mechanisms can be either natural (change in solar output) or human activity (increased emissions of greenhouse gases). The climate system can respond abruptly, but the full response to “Forcing Mechanisms” might not be fully developed for centuries or longer.
INTERNAL FORCING MECHANISMS

Internal forcing is defined by scientists to include natural changes in the air surrounding the Earth’s climate system (atmosphere), water on Earth’s surface (hydrosphere), frozen water (cryrosphere), lithosphere (restricted to the surface soils, rocks, and sediments), and that which supports life (biosphere). Natural changes in the climate system result in internal “climate variability” such as type and distribution of species and change in ocean currents. Oceans have hundreds of times more mass and, therefore, are in a high heat state of resting and movement. This effects ocean depths still lagging today in temperature adjustments from effects of “The Little Ice Age” of past centuries that caused cooling somewhere between the 16th and 19th Centuries. The Little Ice Age is within Earth’s present “Ice Age”.
The internal force of life as affecting changes in climate, in past climates, include the glacial process occurring 2.3 billion years ago, another occurring 300 million years ago which decomposition created a carbon sink and formed coal (Oregon has become the first State to pass a law to eliminate coal-fired power by 2035), another internal force occurring 55 million years ago by flourishing marine plankton consisting of minute plants and other organisms. There was a reversal of changes of climate 49 million years ago by 800,000 years of a growth of fernlike plants in tropical waters, and a global cooling over the past 40 million years caused by the expansion of grass grazing animals.
Thermonuclear fusion is just around the corner. It generates energy that is similar to the Sun’s energy. The fusion contains particles that move faster and faster in a circle in a magnetic field until the plasma heats up to the equivalent heat of the Sun for a sufficient time to create fusion power. By providing an unlimited source of power, the necessity for using fossil fuels, such as oil, gas, and coal, is reduced. The source of fuel for the reactor is found in the oceans; namely, Tritium and Deuterium. A project was initiated at Princeton University in New Jersey USA, and the ability to reach a temperature relative to the Sun’s temperature did not materialize at that time and since that time. Thermonuclear fusion shall never occur if the temperature cannot reach the temperature of the Sun.
Spiritual influence of the 21st Century (see prior post) is destined to have positive affects on the climate. More people with spiritual intent shall be awakened by raising their conscious awareness to higher vibration levels through Thought (meditation). This awareness shall be facilitated by the Universal Life Force as explained in “The Larger Spiritual Order & Universal Scheme of Things-Simplified”. It is destined!!
Here is to Spring Fever!!!
