Why are the Polar Icecaps
By Chris Slotten

Why are the Polar Icecaps melting where the Greenhouse Gasses
are the thinnest?
The current Global Warming Theory assumes Greenhouse Gasses are
evenly distributed around the planet. They re not. All greenhouse
gasses are in the Troposphere. The Troposphere extends from
the Earth out about 14 miles at the equator and 4 miles at the
poles during summer. The Troposphere at the poles during winter
is indistinct. (Supports the oceans exhale when they re hot
concept. When the oceans exhale, they exhale water vapor and
CO2. The oceans are the #1 producer of CO2. Water vapor is
95% of greenhouse gasses.)
A quick note on CO2.
CO2 is .038% of our atmosphere.
The increase in CO2, according to NASA Facts on line, has been
10% over the last 50 years. If man is responsible for all the
increase, man is responsible for 10% of .038% or .0038%. (That
s less than a nickel compared to a $1,000 bill.)
The reason CO2 is so important to the current Theory is that
the other Kyoto Treaty greenhouse gasses are decreasing. Read
the U.N. IPCC Report.
If melting Polar Icecaps is really a concern, we need to establish
why they are melting. It s not greenhouse gasses. Then we need
to see if we can do anything about it.
Blaming manmade greenhouse gasses is a waste of time, money and
The Environmental Maniac

About: "I am the Environmental
Maniac. I was given the label Recycling Maniac by a Waste
Management spokeswomen in all the local press in 1994. That
was the amount of passion required to create the best multi-family
recycling program in California. Environmental Maniac
is just a natural evolution. Simply Chris just reminds me that
without the greatness of others, I can't get anything done."
In 1972 I was a senior at U.C.
Irvine. Greenhouse/Global Cooling was the problem. I built
a car that met 1986 air pollution requirements.
In 1994 I created the best multi-family recycling program in
California. I was the maintenance man for 241 condos and it
made good business since that if I diverted half the garbage
through recycling, the complex would save half on their garbage
bill. That was a $25,000 a year savings. Recycling enough newspaper
and cardboard to save 50,000 trees was a side effect. (That
s a 1,000 years of carbon credits if you buy them from Al Gore.)
I just reduced the air conditioning load on my house by almost
30% through the use of radiant barrier products. I live outside
of Phoenix. That s a big number.
By helping a couple million
other homeowners do the same thing, save money, the Country save
One Quadrillion BTUs of energy a year. That s the equivalent
of 17,000,000 barrels of oil. (A Billion dollars of carbon-offset
