Nearly 4000 man made objects are locked into perpetual orbit around the earth, reflecting and beaming concentrated energy from the Sun, helping to increase overall global temperatures, and the more we continue to launch and orbit these objects, the more concentrated our exposure and intensity of the sun?

(

Are they magnifying glasses or reflective objects? I was pretty sure most objects in orbit tumble, or spin, so wouldn't a reflective object actually DEFLECT sunlight more than radiate to Earth? it would have to be just the right angle to reflect light onto Earth while every other angle would repel the light from Earth.


when ISS and other satellites come over head they flare extremely bright light,. Sometimes so bright its blinding if looking through a lens. Its seems most all space objects have very shiny mirror like surfaces and most of the larger stuff can be seen with the naked eye at night as they pass over

They flare. What does that mean? It means the light is not continuous. What does that mean?

It means that where ever the sun is always shining, So does the debris.

So if the sun is always shining on the north and south poles... that's all it requires

No, it's not, and I am beginning to lose patience with your determined embrace of ignorance. You are simply wrong. The idea that space debris warms Earth is nothing short of imbecilic.

Tell me, exactly how long is the ISS visible every night to you?

You do know the earth is tilted about 23° on average making that literally impossible right?

So you are saying that the miniscule amount of mans garbage in space, is not affecting the climate?


Are you some kind of Space Debris Denier?

Then you are really not going to like my idea of taxing Space Debris

and trading in Space Debris Credits.........

Imbecilic?

Aren't you the one that stated that space debris would shield the earth from sunlight?

You're the pot calling the kettle black.........

No, it's because the entire idea is utterly absurd to begin with.

Yes, that was me. But let's take a look at what I actually wrote.


Astyanax
a shell of debris round the Earth would shield it from sunlight

Are you telling me that's wrong?
