Climate change is a real threat to humans living here on the Good Earth. Whether you try to reduce your carbon footprint, recycle, drive a hybrid or buy Carbon Credits individual efforts will have little or no effect at the cosmic forces at work. What we really need to do is to have the nations of the Earth to unite in the common cause to end the climate change.
The bumper sticker that says, “It’s the Sun Stupid” is essentially correct. The Human Race that lives on this planet are basically a slimy layer of rust on this huge ball of iron that we call Earth. Nothing we do can affect the climate in a large enough way to have an effect be it good or bad. The Sun at the heart of our solar system cycles through periods of increased activity producing heat here and then has periods where activity ebbs and we cool down. The Sun is a constant star when compared with many others in the galaxy. Some stars pulsate dramatically, varying wildly in size and brightness and even exploding. In comparison, the sun varies in the amount of light it emits by only one tenth of one percent over the course of a relatively stable 11-year-long pattern known as the solar cycle. Scientists have also often speculated whether the Maunder Minimum, a 70-year dearth of sunspots in the late 17th to early 18th century, was linked with the coldest part of the Little Ice Age, during which Europe and North America experienced bitterly cold winters.
Basically Earth is in a bad neighborhood and we have to move. Orbital mechanics requires an increase of speed to increase our orbital apogee. We need to move away from the Sun about 25 million miles away from the Sun give or take a smidge. As a bonus we get a nice close up view of Mars.
So….. Gravitational Mass (GM) of the Sun= 4.385 × 10 lbs. Or about 22,850,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, tons. The Mass of the Earth is 608,170,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 tons not counting passengers and baggage. The thrust required to send Earth into the higher orbit we need will require a rocket producing 3.59 Decillion pounds of thrust. That is 356 followed by 33 zeroes.
All we have to do is build a rocket somewhere on the equator that produces 3.59 Decillion pounds of thrust. I’m thinking nuclear. Fire that sucker up and move to where the Sun is not so hot. Unfortunately, the energy produced from the exhaust will produce so much heat that the Oceans of the Earth would boil off creating a greenhouse gas effect that will freeze every living thing on Earth that wasn’t roasted by the heat. The Plan would create the extinction level event that the whole Green/Clean Energy folks want to prevent.
It will take 50 years and about 1.67 Bazillion Dollars to build this rocket so that gives us plenty of time to come up with a way to shield the Earth from the Rocket.
