Was This Atlantis?|
Examination of the possible location and the reason of its disappearance.
The global warming of
twelve thousand years ago.
Otto H Muck had suggested in his book, that global warming and the
rapid melting of glaciers, of twelve to twenty thousand years ago,
had a similar origin. This warming had, according to him, as the
disappearance of Atlantis, been caused by the impact of asteroid or
comet. It's a fact that climate data as it's available today did not
exist at the time that Mr. Muck wrote his book. He therefore
attributed the warming to a shift of the poles and the significant
change of the Gulf-Stream. It's true that the northern regions have
experienced a rapid rise in temperature of twenty degrees or more,
twelve thousand years ago. The Earth's average temperature, on the
other hand, had not experienced such an increase and had grown over a
much longer period. We may doubt that only the increase of the
Earth's average temperature could explain the climate changes that
occurred here in Northern European region.
The increase of the
average temperature in northern Europe was much too high to be
explained by standard models. The most logical is the argument of Mr
Otto H Muck, suggesting that only a shift of the poles, accompanied
by a change in the Gulf-Stream, explains such an increase in average
Isoterme zéro, of 12'000 years ago and now.
We can also ask ourselves, if a relocation of poles may have had
an impact on the Earth's average temperature. It goes without saying
that with an increase of about twenty degrees of northern Europe,
Canada and North America, the glaciers would melt there, but this
increase would still be accompanied a equivalent drop in temperature
on the other side, where glaciers should have formed immediately.
The face of the Earth would in this case certainly be changed, but
the average temperature should not have been affecteded
significantly. The argument used by Mr Otto H Muck, that the
Gulf-Stream came following the disappearance of Atlantis to Europe,
and melting thereby glaciers, is certainly correct. However, the
Gulf Stream does not come and did not come to the coasts of Canada
and North America. However, the glaciers located on this continent
have also melted, partly reforming on the other side. We can deduce
that the change of the Gulf Stream had certainly had an impact. But
the increase in the average temperature in Canada and North America,
and the melting of glaciers that were there cannot be explained by
the global warming of the planet of twelve thousand years ago, nor by
the modification of the Gulf-Stream. Only a shift of the poles could
explain such a change there.
If we inspect the curve of the Earth's average temperature, we
can see a strange sawtooth curve. Then what is curious is that the
gases, which we now qualify as being greenhouse gases, follow the
same curve. The curve of the Earth's average temperature shows
indeed a rapid rise over a millennium, to cool then down slowly for a
hundred thousand years with the regularity of a Swiss clock. Our
dear scientists have drawn a rather little hasty conclusion, seeing
the correlation between the Earth's average temperature curves and
the presence of the carbon dioxide and methane gases, that the
Earth's average temperature would be determined by the amount of
these gases in the atmosphere.
Average temperature of the
Earth for the last 500'000 years.
But to say whether they are these gases, which have raised the
temperature, or conversely, to say that the temperature rise caused
the increase of the activity of the biomass, including insects,
bacillus and other and thereby the presence of those gases in the
atmosphere, no one knowns at this time. Because, as we should know,
the biomass of insects on it's own, is far more important than all
mammals combined. Because the insects produce, like any living
being, carbon dioxide and methane gases and their activity is also
proportional to temperature. Thus, activity and biomass of insects
in particular, could well explain the link between the Earth's
average temperature and the rate of greenhouse gases. It's quite
possible that the Sun has absolutely not a constant energy flow, but
shows significant changes over a period of one hundred thousand
years, which could very well explain the periodicity of these curves.
It may be that the Sun's different nuclear reactions take place over
time, and not in a constant manner. One clue that might tell us that
this would be the case, is the absence of neutrinos that the Sun is
supposed to produce today. The fact that the sun does not currently
generate but one third of the neutrinos it's supposed to produce,
could tell us that we still know very little of what is going on
inside our star.
But to conclude: is the event causing the disappearance of
Atlantis, the same as the the one causing an increase in the Earth's
average temperature? Probably not, these are obviously two separate
events that occurred around the same date.
