Stories for a Changing Climate

Antarctic ice melting faster than expected

"The report shows that the Antarctic Peninsula alone has decreased by 27,000 square kilometres in the past 50 years."

Scientists in the United Kingdom have produced a study which shows ice has grown by 100,000 square kilometres each decade over the past 30 years and perversely (!) the increase is being put down to the hole in the ozone layer.

Climate change threat to alpine ski resorts

In some years the amount that fell was 60 per cent lower than was typical in the early 1980s, said Christoph Marty, from the Swiss Federal Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research in Davos, who analysed the records.
"I don't believe we will see the kind of snow conditions we have experienced in past decades," he said.

A Kind of Metal Fire

Thermite/thermate is a kind of
(1) metal fire that produces
(2) a plume of white/grey smoke and
(3) a stream of molten iron.

NOTA BENE: All the salient features of thermite/thermate can be seen at the 81st floor of the south tower in the minutes preceeding its collapse.

The intense fire in the northeast corner opening of the 81st floor is still present. An unusual flame is visible within this fire. In the upper photograph in Figure 9-44 a very bright white flame, as opposed to the typical yellow or orange surrounding flames, which is generating a plume of white smoke, stands out. The intensity of this flame is considerably brighter than normal flames. It was easily indentified in numerous photographs and videos shot from long distances at which the surrounding "normal" flames were not visible. The brightness of the flame, along with the white smoke, suggests that some type of metal is burning. Aluminum will burn, but in normal fires it usually melts instead because the metal surface is protected by an oxide layer that must be breeched before ignition can take place. Aluminum oxide melts at high temperatures (2054C) that are not typically reached in normal fires. There were limited quantities of other metals on the aircraft that might also burn. Whatever the metal, the ignition of a metal fire is an indication of the significant heating of debris that took place in the northeast corner of the 81st floor due to the prolonged intense burning in this area following the aircraft impact.

Living in peace assumes presence in each person of such qualities as restraint and tolerance.

The Living Bible


(7:5) But thus shall ye deal with them:

ye shall destroy their altars

and break down their images,

and cut down their groves,

and burn their graven images with fire.

(7:6) For thou [art] an holy people unto the LORD thy God:
the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself,
above all people that [are] upon the face of the earth.
