Bedwetting Warmists convert a stunning scientific discovery into a sign of looming Armageddon

Poor weather channel boy sport, MORE humiliation...

Two British scientists have made an important new discovery (scientific abstract here), mapping what lies beneath the Earth's crust: a vast "molten zone" of carbon beneath the western United States.

Scientists using the world's largest array of seismic sensors found a huge area of melting carbon covering 1.8 million km2 (684 000 mi2), 350 km (217.5 miles) beneath the Western US. The discovery challenges accepted the understanding of how much carbon the Earth contains and suggests it is much more than previously understood.

Using phased-array sensors is a well established technique for mapping used in radar, EEGs, and other applications. It also enables the scientists to explore what lies deep beneath the Earth's surface.

But instead of celebrating the discovery and exploring the opportunities it raises, warmists have so demonized carbon that the author of the study told Business Insider:

"While there is no imminent possibility of this carbon making it to the surface, it shows that in absence of such a deep Earth reservoir this carbon would have to be accommodated in the surface, potentially leading to massive global warming," he said. ...

"While between 30-40% of this carbon comes back to the surface through volcanoes, the rest get carried into the deeper mantle," Hier-Majumder said. "The partially molten region we see in the US is clearly adjacent to such an oceanic plate in the mantle."

Yep. Volcanoes are scary. Business Insider provides a helpful graphic:

Even though all life on Earth is based on carbon, that basic and essential element has become the devil in the new religion popular among those Americans who regard themselves as atheists. The Gospel of Global Warming offers a version of sin and redemption far less demanding than the Judeo-Christian faith tradition's. Buy an electric car (heavily subsidized by taxpayers), carry your groceries home in a hemp bag (but watch out for those meat juices soaking in and contaminating the vegetables you take home next time!), and you're saved, without ever contemplating your actual sins against your fellow men and women and God.

The patina of "settled science" (an oxymoron) they seize upon disguises the blind demonology that motivates them and perverts genuine science to their own spiritual imperatives.

This new discovery seems to be consistent with existing theories of abiogenic petroleum, "which propose that petroleum and natural gas are formed by inorganic means rather than by the decomposition of organisms." These theories suggest that the actual hydrocarbon deposits of the Earth are virtually limitless, since they are not dependent on dinosaur bones and plant life decomposing over millions of years, but rather come from below, the product of the very composition of the earth's interior.

Of course, at current oil and gas prices, drilling deep into the Earth's crust to tap deep gas and oil is not practical. In fact, under current technology, it is impossible. But this discovery offers tantalizing possibilities for understanding our world and eventually applying that knowledge to our needs. Remember the looming doom of "peak oil"? Fracking put that to sleep.

Instead, religious fanatics have seized upon this new discovery to hype their apocalyptic vision of doom that just has to exist, somehow, if we keep using carbon-based energy sources.

Meanwhile, unless you "adjust" the data, there has been no global warming for twenty years, almost. But we're still doomed: the warmists have faith in that.

But but science. In fact, sport will be driving to the DC science convention in his Prius, emitting co2.

How dare you two mean dudes take away fake weather channel boy sport's "emotional appeasement and quest for relevance" by once again revealing the Lie & Fraud of MMGW.

Ahahahaha!

At least no one whined yet. Figures don't lie but nobrain loves to figure.

Why, where's our board "scientist"???

First it was the ice age coming back, then acid rain, then CFC's. Then warming, then changing, now CO2 is doing it.

More liberal hysteria. Crops grow better when it's warm out. :lo2l:

Still the bedwetting board "scientist" runs from this article like he runs from the truth each day.

By Robin Andrews

There’s a massive lump of liquidized, carbon-rich rock hiding hundreds of kilometers beneath Yellowstone’s supervolcano and the greater Western United States area. It’s truly massive – 1.8 million square kilometers (about 700,000 square miles) in size – and it’s bubbling inside the upper region of the mantle, the region of the planet that’s a partly-molten churning mass of fiery doom.

It’s essentially molten carbonates, a type of rock that has a lot of carbon contained within it. In fact, this reservoir of carbon is so huge that it’s completely changed the way scientists understand the carbon cycle.

To put it in comparable terms, back in 2011, the amount of carbon released into the atmosphere – mainly through human activity – was about 10 billion tonnes (about 11 billion tons). This newly found reservoir implies that the upper mantle contains 10,000 times more carbon than this, primarily as trapped carbon dioxide gas.

“Releasing only 1% of this CO2 into the atmosphere will be the equivalent of burning 2.3 trillion barrels of oil,” lead co-author Sash Hier-Majumder, a senior lecturer in geophysics at Royal Holloway, said in a statement.

That’s roughly 325 times greater than the United States’ annual oil consumption.

Although this carbon will slowly make its way to the surface via volcanic eruptions, there’s absolutely no need to fret. It will have an incredibly small effect on the rate of climate change we are now experiencing, which a recent study clocked as being 170 times faster than what would be expected if humanity was taken out of the equation.
