The "Carbon Footprint" of the Central America Volcanic Arc

"CO2 is but one of many variables that affect the climate, and its effect is very slight, in comparison to many other factors. Moreover, man’s contribution of CO2, SO2, and other greenhouse gases is relatively minor, when compared to the contributions from natural sources."

The Warmists never let facts stand in their way. If weather is "man made," it provides them with a reason to control man's activities in detail. All in our best interests of course. Fascists is what they are.

From time immemorial governments have dreamed of having the power to tax the air we breathe.

The "climate change" scare is their strategy.

I tell ya, this could turn out, eclipse global warming. How’s your helium footprint?

Nine out of ten international experts agree that “Helium, on the other hand, is a different matter.
It represents 0.00052% of the volume in our atmosphere, but it's mainly harvested from natural gas using a process called fractional distillation. Helium is becoming scarce in our planet.”

The tenth international expert says: “This planet isn't losing weight. The infall of meteor dust is considerable, forgotten long ago how much, but some very large number of tons per year.
It could be in the millions. Maybe even thousands. Who knows, hundreds could be involved.”

*It should be noted that this expert is of the old school, only endorses that which he thought of first.
There are strong arguments for the Earth actually losing weight.

This article is one of many that describe several possible causes and concludes that specific elements leaving Earth’s atmosphere will cause weight loss.
If I were playing the stocks and commodity markets I would buy shares in helium companies or support research that would allow us to split an atom or two and create more of the stuff.
As it is I monitor what parameters I can and have formulated lighter Earth/heavier Earth scenarios.
