Earths atmosphere has been puffing up like a marshmellow over a campfire , and nasa says its a good thing......

NCREASING SOLAR ACTIVITY CLEANS UP SAT-DEBRIS: Earth's atmosphere has been puffing up in response to increasing levels of UV radiation from sunspots. This is good news for satellite operators, because a puffed up atmosphere helps clean up low-Earth orbit. "The number of cataloged debris in Earth orbit actually decreased during 2011," reports Nick Johnson in NASA's Orbital Debris Quarterly newsletter. "[The figure below] illustrates how the rate of debris reentries from the Fengyun-1C anti-satellite test of January 2007 increased during the past year."

Is this also why all the satellites have been falling perhaps?

Well as long as the satellite operators are happy then we cant ask for more than that.
The rest of us will be toast.seriously i think half of the stuff that comes from these 'scientists" is just made up
How can they know the atmosphere is "puffing up"?

With any luck, maybe this expanding marshmallow will also help to bring down some of the armed space weapons floating around up there pointing down towards us... Odds are they'd probably hit the Pacific Ocean and sink to the bottom ?

Okay okay, so they say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one...

Explanation: S&F!

And OL bets that next comes the blackening due to carbonization
... oh wait
... hang on
... never mind!

Carbon Tax (Australia) [wiki]

Both the incumbent Howard Coalition government and the Rudd Labor opposition promised to implement an emissions trading scheme (ETS) before the 2007 federal election. Labor won the election, with the new government proceeding to implement an ETS. The government introduced the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme, which the Liberals supported with Malcolm Turnbull as leader. Tony Abbott questioned an ETS, saying "If you want to put a price on carbon, why not just do it with a simple tax? Why not ask electricity consumers to pay more, then at the end of the year you can take your invoices to the tax office and get a rebate? It would be burdensome, all taxes are burdensome, but it would certainly change the price of carbon, raise the price of carbon, without increasing in any way the overall tax burden." Shortly before the ETS vote, Abbott defeated Turnbull in a leadership challenge, and from there on the Liberals opposed the ETS. This left the government unable to secure passage of the bill and it was subsequently withdrawn.

Julia Gillard defeated Rudd in a leadership challenge on the 24th of June 2010 and soon after called a Federal Election, 2010 election. During this election she said "There will be no carbon tax under the government I lead". In the first hung parliament result in 70 years, the government required the support of crossbenchers including the Greens. One requirement for Green support was a carbon tax, which Gillard proceeded with in forming a minority government. A fixed-price carbon tax would proceed to a floating-price ETS within a few years under the plans. The government proposed the Clean Energy Bill in February 2011, which the opposition claimed to be a broken election promise. The Liberal Party vowed to overturn the bill if it is elected.

The bill was passed by the Lower House in October 2011[68] and the Upper House in November 2011.

Personal Disclosure: So the sun was responsible for the global warming!

Nasa really seems to be saying its good the satilites are falling cause it will be easer to put more up now.
Thank You sunspots.
And now we will go research man made global warming some more.

I just have one question.....will it pop? It can't just keep on expanding, can it?
