GLOBAL DIMMING The Solution to Facing Global Issues Without Disturbing the Balance Barbara Viehmeyer THE ARGUMENT • Do we use global dimming to the advantage of saving the earth or try to reduce it, along with global warming? WHAT IS GLOBAL DIMMING? • Reduction of solar radiation (heat) reaching the earth and staying within the atmosphere. • Thick, reflective clouds traced from chemtrails • pollutants • Sulfur dioxide, soot and ash, also with carbon dioxide • The chemtrails in the atmosphere viewed from satellite over the Atlantic. SIMPLE DIAGRAM OF GLOBAL DIMMING ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY • During the 9/11 attack, all commercial flights were grounded for the next 3 days. • The graph below is the data that was found during those 3 days. IMPORTANCE OF GLOBAL DIMMING • The impacts would be dire to humans and to the earth. • Increase the effects of global warming • Irreversible damage would be only about 30 years away from year 2009 EFFECTS OF DESTROYING GLOBAL DIMMING • No more blanket to deflect some of the effects from global warming • Rapid warming • Less oxygen • Reaction from methane hydrate • Eight times stronger carbon dioxide • Anup stated, “This is not a prediction, it is a warning of cause and effect when we clean up the pollution without the greenhouse gases”.
