We cannot allow an Ice Age to happen again!

The extend of  northern glaciation during the last Ice Age

Can you imagine the world loosing
Canada, Ireland, England, Poland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Greenland, Iceland,
half of Russia, half of the USA, and sea ice extending to Los Angeles and Washington?

 Can you image image a world with most of  the precious sights becoming history?


An ice age world would be an unlivable world

 

Fortunately mankind has a choice

I say fortunately, because if the Ice Age Theory of the Milankovitch Cycles reflected reality, we would have no choice. We would see ourselves subjected to climatic conditions created by cyclical changes in the way the Earth orbits the Sun. Thank God this theory is false, or else we would have no hope.

If we become sensitive to how the Universe operates and move with its principles (and leave the old nations behind us), we begin to discern that we have much greater freedoms to direct our existence than we ever dared to hope for. When this happens we will discover that the big climate changes are not the result of changes in the Earth's orbit, but reflect changes in the electric power flux density that powers our sun. Our sun is not a nuclear fusion engine that is self-powered, steady as she goes, afloat in royal isolation in a lonely speck of space. Instead the Sun is powered by vast plasma electric currents that pervade the galaxy, which itself is powered by even larger electric power flows which tie all the galaxies together with large networks of such power flows that pervade the cosmos in the form of endless filaments of power interwoven likes stands of the foal upon the sea. It has only been possible quite recently to actually see these filaments of power (faintly) that line the galaxies up into a row like pearls on a string.

See: The Electric Universe

The point is, that since the Universe is electrically powered, including our galaxy, and our sun within it - which exists within an interacting spiral maze (as below) that powers 200-400 billion suns and is always in motion, one might expect a few fluctuations within this maze that. Considering that the maze of our Milky Way galaxy is 100,000 light years across, one would expect long term electric power-flux cycles to be a common occurrence, which of course would also affect the orbits of the planets in our little solar system..

So, how can we defend ourselves against the recurring ice ages in this vast maze of ever changing cycles of electric power flux?

Our defense lies in understanding what causes the ice age effects. The climate on earth is determined to a large extend by snow cover and cloud formation, which determines how much of the incoming solar energy is reflected back into space. Where there are no clouds and snow the Earth is dark, so that the incoming heat is retained. If you look closely as the landscape below (seen from space at the ISS) you will notice just a slight difference in the whiteness of clouds and open snow cover.

Cloud formation takes place in the troposphere. One of the active factors in the process of cloud formation, perhaps the largest of them, is the ionization of particles in the atmosphere caused by its interaction with cosmic radiation, The ionization increases the attraction by which water vapor molecules to combine into cloud droplets. It is known from measurements taken in a cave in which a large stalactite grew since before the end of the last Ice Age, that during the end of the last Ice Age the cosmic ray flux had been twice as dense as it is toady, which would have resulted in a greater intensity of the cloud formation process. The 'using up' of the fine water vapor would have thereby also lowered the greenhouse effect of the atmosphere, which is furnished by water vapor, up to 97% of it. The greenhouse effect moderates our climate. Without it no life would likely exist on Earth. This reduced effect of it, combined with the increased reflectivity of the Earth, would dramatically cool the terrestrial climate, to the point of causing ice ages. It appears that there is something we can do about that.

Can we prevent the ice ages from happening?

Hopefully, we can. We evidently have no control over the cosmic-radiation flux density. The intensity of the solar activity controls that, which affects the 'strength' of the heliosphere around it, that attenuates the incoming cosmic radiation from space. None of this is under our control. However, there is a small factor located in the middle of all that, which is a part of the ionization process. And this is a factor that we might be able to control.

Above the thin haze of the Earth's atmosphere lies the ionosphere that in some regions of it is intensely electrified. From it extends an electric field down to the ground. The cloud forming ionization happens within this electric field and is evidently enhanced by it. It appears possible to create a plasma channel that extends into the electricity-intense region of the ionosphere and draw power from it as an electricity source for our utilization on Earth. (see: Absolute Power - Solar Power) While drawing power away from the ionosphere, though much of it would constantly be replenished, it might be possible to draw enough from it to lower its electric field intensity and thereby reduce the ionization process. That's a long shot, but so far the only one with any reasonable promise.

It should certainly be possible on this basis, to not only open up an infinite electric power resource for mankind's use, but also to regulate the process that leads to ice ages, in order to prevent them. The principles for this to be possible do all exist. Only the details for how to do it need yet to be discovered and the technologies be created.

The potential adds up to a long shot, and not something that is easily done.

But what is the alternative? Can we afford to let the next Ice Age happen? The resulting devastation promises to be worse than a nuclear war. Sure, it is possible for the affected populations to migrate away from the ice bound regions, even to relocate entire nations, and as many as a dozen of them, which may become necessary when the coming Ice Age cannot be blocked, and also to create vast infrastructures for indoor agriculture to assure mankind's continuing food supply. Certainly, all of this can be done. Indeed, some of it should be created anyway. But letting things come that far is not a good solution. It would be far better to prevent the next ice age cycle from occurring, that is already looming on the horizon, by taking the steam out of what causes it.

It appears however, that we are well prepared for such a quest.

One of the difficulties in exploring the ionosphere is that it is almost inaccessible. It is located too high to be explored by balloons, and too low to be accessible by satellites. The International Space Station, the world's laboratory in space, might become a useful platform for exploring this exotic sphere beneath its wings. It might also extend the life of the station for a few decades, which NASA had announced it wants to de-orbit in the middle of the decade.
