The 40,000-Mile Volcano; What Warms the Oceans Warms the Atmosphere

The riot of life coexists with springs hot enough to melt lead or the plastic windows of mini submarines. With extreme care, humans and robots have measured temperatures as high as 780 degrees… Oceanographers, the book says, have discovered vast swarms of unusually sturdy microbes thriving in dark volcanic waters as hot as 250 degrees — hotter than most boiling water on land…

More boldly, Dr. Tolstoy suggested that such mechanisms might help explain how the planet’s regular ice ages end so abruptly — long a mystery.

Ocean levels fall sharply in such bitterly cold periods as water is tied up in massive continental ice sheets. In a paper, she proposed that the reduced pressure on the ridges might let them erupt far more frequently. As a result, more carbon dioxide would spew into the ocean and, eventually, into the atmosphere, trapping more heat and warming the planet.

In short, according to this hypothesis, the ice sheets would eventually grow large enough to initiate their own destruction, refilling the oceans.

  1. Started to write this two days ago, was interupted and forgot about it. Just found it …

    – Yes, beneficial for the very important phytoplanktons and yes, as all vulcanos emit carbon dioxide, regardless of state – active, dormant or ‘dead’. The amount increase with the activity, as any other gases the vulcano release. That’s proven. The monitor station at Mt Loa, Hawaii, now used for measuring atmosphere’s carbon dioxide level, was made for monitoring the release of different gas level of the vulcano[s] …

    … and, eventually, into the atmosphere, trapping more heat and warming the planet.
    – Still, that’s not proven. Maybe, but then water has to be totally ignored [removed], but that can’t be done in the real world. At ‘best’, carbon dioxide prevent the temperature of the Earth’s atmosphere to go below -85°C/-121°F/+188°K. That’s it.

    What about the increase in the amount of heated water? At the vulcano, all nearby airborne water, as well in liquid form, will without a doubt be warmed. Just realize how warm/hot water is used in several [artifical] situations:
    • We use hot water storage tanks (accumulators) in different heating systems.
    • Compare the differense between a dry Swedish sauna and a wet Finnish sauna, where the Finnish are used at a lower temperature than the Swedish, with same affect due to water’s heat accumulating capabilities. (Personally, I prefer +90°C in a Swedish and +65°C in a Finnish. If available, the Finnish type is choosen due to my asthma.)

    If carbon dioxide were as efficiant as stated by political entities and MSM, it would have been used instead (in some way) in my and other examples, but in reality, it doesn’t work …

    Carbon dioxide can be used for cooling systems though, but doesn’t always make sense.
