I have a new theory and thought I would see what you think! I don't think that the sea levels are rising just because of global warming. I think the
levels are rising, because we keep on putting stuff in our oceans.
Every year there is a new Cruise ship that is bigger and better than the last. The materials that are used to make the big ships are source from
inland. Then the ship is manufactured and place in the ocean. This is weight that the ocean didn't have to contend with before and therefore would
displace some water. We all know what happens when you get in a bath that is full to the brim. It overflows, because we displace the water.
Now imagine that there is a few thousand of these ships in the ocean. This would displace a larger amount of water. This has to happen.
There are also coal ships and cargo ships.
This one would displace a lot.Also now combine to that displacement, that there are more people world wide with boats now, more displacement.
now this is just one marina full of boats, imagine how many marinas there are? And all marinas usually have walls created from rocks, dumped in the
More and more people have access to and are able to travel to the beach. This means more bodies in the water displacing more water.
Also we have many countries starting to build on the water. The islands have their little huts on top the water. Many Asian countries are building in
rivers to accommodate more people. Dubai has created their own world map of islands by dumping alot of dirt in the ocean. This all would displace
They said the Dubai island complexes were a trilogy, but I can not find an image for the other one.
There are also more bridges being built, all of these bridges have tremendous poles that extend into the oceans and rivers. These poles have to
displace some amount of water. That is fact. There are over 600 000 bridges in the U.S. alone. Imagine worldwide.
Also all our rubbish that is chucked in the ocean or the ships that are always sunk out at sea. Like the junk island floating around the globe.
Now as you can see if you added all of these factors together and summed up the total amount of displacement of water, that is created, it would add
up to a massive of water being displaced. I think this is the true reason for global water levels to be rising, and we are stupid and being blinded.
They are making out that it is everyone fault that the waters are rising, but I think if you look a little closer, I think all the money mungars are
trying to slip another fast one past us, so they can continue to make their money and ruin the world!
Well lets look at it this way:
The surface area of the Worlds oceans is 335 258 000 km2
To raise the level of the worlds oceans by a metre you would need:
335 258 000 km2 * 0.0000001 km =335.258 km3 (0.0000001 km2= 1 metre)
A cubic metre of salt water weighs 1.027 tonnes. therefore:
A cubic metre of salt water weighs 1.027 tonnes *1000000metres =1 027 000 tonnes for a cubic kilometre of salt water
1 027 000 tonnes* 335.258km3= 344 309 966 tonnes
344 309 966 tonnes of water will need to be displaced to make a one metre rise in the oceans of the world.
There are around 250 cruise ships worldwide each weighing Average Gross tonnage of 100 000 tonnes
So the cruise ships world wide weigh 25 000 000tonnes in total.
There are around 9000 cargo ships around the world each weighing an average of 50 000 tonnes
so the cargo ships world wide weigh 450 000 000 tonnes in total.
now this is what they say about floating:
The standard definition of floating was first recorded by Archimedes and goes something like this: An object in a fluid experiences an upward force
equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the object. So if a boat weighs 1,000 pounds (or kilograms), it will sink into the water until it has
displaced 1,000 pounds (or kilograms) of water. Provided that the boat displaces 1,000 pounds of water before the whole thing is submerged, the boat
So to me this means if the combined weight of all the boats is 475 000 000 tonnes then at one time there could be 475 000 000 tonnes of sea water
displaced. I f everything was full.
I expect that half of these ships would be empty at any one time, so if we half the total it is more likely the figure of water displaced by the ships
at one time.
This would be 237 500 000 tonnes of water displaced. If we needed 344 309 966 tonnes to be displaced to make a metre rise, these ships account for
around two thirds of a metre rise or 60 cm globally
I think this is right is there any mathematicians to check my work?
So what do you think?
To the mods, sorry if it is not allowed to redo a thread, I couldn't find the answer anywhere if it is not allowed.
