Death came swiftly for the Great Julius Caesar on his way to the
capitol. And one of his murderers? Brutus, a trusted friend!
If you talk of betrayals, more bizarre things have happened. For
even Agamemon -- conqueror of lands and of mighty men, was killed
by his own wife!
But pity neither Caesar, nor Agamemon. For your best riends are
this moment betraying you. They have dug your grave, made out
your coffin and are preparing to announce your obituary, even
while you are still alive!
But hold on before you dispatch hired assassins to good old Billy,
or faithful Penelope, and end up in the dock for first-degree
murder. Who are these friends?
They are greenhouse gases. Now, try this experiment. Find a hot
corner of the street, park your car there, and shut yourself inside
with the windows closed. How do you find the experience?
The car will be terribly hot because while the transparent glass
lets the suns rays in, it cannot let out the dangerous invisible
infrared radiation. You will be killing yourself!
The same story proves true for the earths atmosphere which
acts like the glass in a greenhouse. It traps the suns heat
thereby warming the earth. Without it, the earth orbiting in the
cold, empty space, would freeze!
But too much of a good thing is bad. The greenhouse gases -- our
friends which make us warm, are turning into our enemies. Lets
see their dubious roles.
As our friend, it absorbs heat. But as our enemy it cooperates
with other gases to sound our death knell.
As our friend, it traps heat and sustains life. But we have produced
too much of it that even the plants and the ocean cannot absorb,
and the surplus is turning up the earths temperature.
As our friend, this natural gas is as useful as carbon dioxide.
But it has turned into an enemy because we have produced twice
as much as we need, and the excess is making it impossible for
the atmosphere to disintegrate other dangerous gases.
As our friend, when chlorofluorocarbons are in the lower atmosphere,
they are efficient heat absorbers. But when they rise up, they
become our enemies because they go to destroy the earths
protective umbrella, the ozone.
As our friend, this laughing gas like CFCs absorbs heat when it
is in the lower atmosphere. But when it goes up, it destroys the
This gas is our friend when it is in the high atmosphere where
it filters deadly ultraviolet radiation, the cause of
skin cancer. But when it comes down, it becomes our enemy.
Since these greenhouse gases are being added into the atmosphere
daily from the use of fossil fuel, how can the danger of mass
poisoning be avoided?
Well, Homo Sapien the smart has already dreamed up solutions:
Man will harness solar power to replace conventional ones.
Man will invent clean burning hydrogen fuel in place of
the hazardous petroleum products.
Man will make a gigantic parasol to shield the earth from
the suns dangerous rays.
Man will reforestate the globe to suck up excess carbon dioxide.
Man will fire up giant laser rays to kill CFCs before they damage
Man will use solar power satellites to collect solar energy from
space, and send it down as microwaves, or laser beams, for use
in place of burning fossil fuels.
. Thats enough. Thank you man the wise. Clap
Lets hope that you will fix the greenhouse gases before
they cover your grave!
