The Earth and the entire universe is massive, as well as fragile. Each planet that circles our sun has different characteristics; no two are the same. For example, Jupiter is a giant gas planet so huge that 1,100 Earth-size planets could fit inside it. Jupiter, as well as Neptune, emits more energy than it receives.
All objects within the confines of the universe are in motion and in timed sequence. The Earth is no different. It is when natural interruption interferes with timed motion and the patterns of cycles that changes the normal activity of these objects into a cataclysmic event. This is the fragile side of universal objects.
Two things should be of major concern to Earth’s environmentalists. Jupiter is a huge hydrogen bomb because its atmosphere is 80 percent hydrogen. It already emits more energy than it receives from the sun. If and when it reaches critical mass and explodes, the Earth will be no more.
All the carbon taxes, rules and environmental laws that Washington politicians pass will not stop Jupiter, Saturn or our sun from reaching critical mass.
In the center of the Earth is a fiery furnace of hydrogen and other gases that is held in place by gravity. It too is a huge hydrogen bomb. Nothing is forever and that includes the life of our Earth and sun. When the sun dies out (and it will), or explodes or implodes, life on Earth will be gone in an instant. Man and the Earth are at the mercy of these ongoing and coming events.
God created heaven and Earth, but for some unexplained reason, many Washington politicians’ think they are the new Earth god. This thinking has caused these Earth gods to impose their will by taxing and enforcing useless laws that they think will stop the Earth and universe from harming itself.
Let us now look at Earth itself. By the standards of a person standing alongside a great mountain, the mountain is physically huge, compared to the size of the person. But put Earth alongside of Jupiter and Earth then becomes a grain of sand compared to other universal objects.
The Earth, covered mostly by water, is a fragile planet that has circled the sun for billions of years. Life on Earth is possible because of gravity and cycles of rotation. Nothing man can do will stop its rotation or increase or decrease its gravity. The only protection man has is a thin crust that separates a fire as hot as the sun that is right below his feet anywhere on Earth.
To hear Washington politicians talk, they consider themselves governmental gods that can save the universe from itself by instituting harmful laws and rules that cause businesses to shut their doors, forcing those unemployed people to die on the vine of hope.
Be it understood, those business destroyers (politicians) continue to collect their exorbitant paychecks, benefits, pensions, etc. Their insane tax plans to save the Earth from natural cycles that have been going on since the beginning of time are foolish, to say the least.
Beneath the feet of every living thing on Earth lies a giant ball of fire capable of melting anything that comes in contact with it.
The Earth’s crust varies in thickness around the globe. In the South Pacific is the deepest ocean on Earth – 35,000 feet deep – called the Marianas Trench. The Earth’s crust at the trench is a 3-mile wide swath that separates water and fire.
The venting pressure from the Earth’s core is volcanoes. Iceland, the Pacific ring of fire and all the volcanic action around the world should bring to mind that man is a grain of sand when standing against the force of nature.
Little do they (politicians) know that right below their feet is a boiling core of fire that could explode at any time if the Earth’s crust fails to hold the core in check. These self-appointed experts and Earth gods believe passing law after environmental law, and taxing helpless people will shield the world from any and all of nature’s harm.
The Earth has survived and flourished for many reasons. One such reason is plate tectonics that are ever moving and changing, creating new land and recycling older land.
According to President Barack Obama and the liberal Democrats and moderate Republicans, windmills, solar panels and the Chevrolet Volt will put out the fire beneath their feet with hope of stopping volcanoes, tsunamis, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, sun storms, dust storms, drought, floods, famine, disease, crime, accidents, power outages and civil unrest and all other cataclysmic events that have occurred on Earth and in the universe since the beginning of time.
If all this green stuff, environmental laws, rules, regulations, carbon dollars, windmills, solar panels and Chevy Volt cars don’t stop these natural events, what is plan B?
We are in for another four years of Obama and the liberals who claim to lower the sea levels and report in a well-publicized news conference that the sun will rise in the north and set in the east, and, by executive order, the president will tax the sun because it causes global warming.
Air Force One will probably fly to the sun on a fact-finding mission to figure out how to tax the sun, which has caused so many problems on Earth and elsewhere in the universe.
