Education steers our perception to consensus of the time. Right now mining and oil and gas acquisition are very important to mankind so that means
that we teach what is important to us.
Now, the interior of the earth is very hot, it's temperature is thought to be about the temperature of the surface of the sun. Not the corona, the
surface. I read that somewhere. This heat is relative to existance here on earth, although not a major player, it does buffer things.
Also, earths magnetic field is just as relative to existence here on earth as the suns magnetic field. So is the interaction and orbit of our moon.
Now the orbit of the moon, another big player is not around our equator, why is this. If the only thing important was the north and south pole, it
would be centered around the equator. There are many forces at play, not just the major ones most people think of. I cannot find why the moons orbit
is as it is, it seems there are a few theories but they are inconclusive at this time. Of course we can say these theories are correct and teach that
the theories are real, but that is not really science. So finding exact information on this is also kind of difficult, specialists do not seem to
want to go into uncharted territories because we haven't yet found the answer to this so they just say the moon orbits a certain way without sharing
much on what they think causes it. Evidence will someday materialize as our equipment gets better, but it really is not worth spending billions on
trying to figure out exactly what causes it. The money would be best spent on areas with a return on it, something that someone will pay for.
That is just an extra off topic example of our consensus of the time of what is important. A hundred years ago in the Copper Country there was a need
for copper and the process of extraction was pretty bad on the environment. Now, according to consensus of the time, the earth would heal itself and
nothing they could do would hurt anything permanently. So now, the superfund paid for some modifications to fix it, but they gave up because they
barely made a dent in it. There is no real way to fix it. The taxpayer paid for our ancestors ignorance.
Now, I am not saying that fracking is causing the tornadoes to change their course for sure, I am just saying that it is possible that they are
contributing to the change. I am saying there is little research being done on this idea, and I think it is possibly a player. I doubt if it could
make a small tornado into a huge one, but it could possibly allow two fronts to switch direction a bit. There would also need to be more energy
available, that is where climate change could supply this.
Here is something to consider, these storms have been increasing lately and this increase does just about line up with the major increase in fracking.
Is that just a coincidence?
I came to ATS because I wanted to shed my box and look at everything. I don't want to be limited by what I am told is true and pertinent to things.
Now I look for evidence, evidence made by science and the observations of people and evaluate that. I can think on my own, I do not have to parrot
others. But in this case, I cannot find any published evidence discounting or proving my hypothesis, you would think someone would be looking at
this, I have been surprised how much varied research about subjects I find on the net. Nothing about this though, nothing to say it is wrong...with
evidence. If I were to believe your saying it has no effect without proper evidence, I should just go back to being a worker in a factory and toss
out the knowledge I have gained over my lifetime.
