I believe its UV radiation heating us up

UV radiation doesn't heat us up. Infrared does.


Thanks for correction.
Wiki...


Much of the energy from the Sun arrives on Earth in the form of infrared radiation. Sunlight at zenith provides an irradiance of just over 1 kilowatt per square meter at sea level. Of this energy, 527 watts is infrared radiation, 445 watts is visible light, and 32 watts is ultraviolet radiation.[2] The balance between absorbed and emitted infrared radiation has a critical effect on the Earth's climate.

Can I just add this link to the OP list. It hasn't been confirmed as a sink hole or a mini volcano yet due to weather.

Greetings esteemed member Rezlooper:

Congratulations!

Good on you, mate!

Few people have managed to maneuver the resident (ATS Staff pet) under-the-bridge dweller into a targetable situation that elicits the plain truth and further reveals the ill-conceived AI Program we all joke about.

Sir kosmicjack is to be commended for his timely rescue and stellar stewardship.



As for this:


UV radiation doesn't heat us up. Infrared does.

Harmful Effects of Ultraviolet Radiation


The harmful effects from exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation can be classified as acute or chronic. The acute effects of UV-A and UV-B exposure are both short-lived and reversible.

These effects include mainly sunburn (or erythema) and tanning (or pigment darkening). The chronic effects of UV exposure can be much more serious, even life threatening, and include premature aging of the skin, suppression of the immune system, damage to the eyes, and skin cancer.


Nothing to see here, move along...

That's right, excessive UV radiation is harmful to life. That's pretty well known and it isn't what the OP was talking about.By his context (and his other thread which he references) it is clear that he believe(d) that an increase in UV levels would contribute to global warming.

In essence, don't we have the same thing? Dangerous gases go up, radiation from the infrared doesn't get out and the earth heats up... and as a FewGoodWomen says, earth's core heats up, ice caps melt, forces underground water pressure and wreaks havoc on earth...by way of increased earthquakes, volcanoes and sinkholes!

No. Because a decrease in ozone does not increase radiative forcing.

The Earth's core is very, very far from the ice caps. It is very, very far from the Earth's crust where earthquakes, volcanoes, and yes, sinkholes originate. And of course, no explanation of how solar flares would heat the Earth's core much less any acknowledgement that the Sun has been quieter now than it has been in a long time.

You know that concentrations of H2S high enough to explode would also render humans quite dead, right?

Hydrogen Sulphide:
Lower explosive limit: 4.3%
Lethal concentration: 0.08% (5 minutes)

What I say in the other thread is that the atmosphere is heated up causing all these problems and that's what I'll stick to. When infrared doesn't escape from the atmosphere because of gases like carbon dioxide, but more importantly, methane, that build up and block its escape, then we have atmospheric heating. How can you say otherwise?

In the other thread I clearly state that I'm no scientist and that there are far more knowledgeable folks here that could discuss the theories I presented but they have refused. H2S is proposed to rise in bubbles from anoxic waters and then float over land and settle in lower areas where they have then caused explosions and/or neurological problems to humans and animals (thus the mass animal die-offs). If this isn't possible, please go on the other thread and present your case of why not so that those who have more knowledge of this can discuss it.

Sinkhole closes downtown street in Venice


VENICE - Overnight rains opened about a 20-square-foot sinkhole in the middle of Nassau Street in downtown Venice. The hole has become a bit of a curiosity for crowds of people downtown this morning, said Venice police Sgt. Joe Whitehead. The street has been blocked off near the W. Venice Avenue intersection as police wait for utility workers to fix the hole. Whitehead said the street will likely be blocked for a few hours, until utility crews can arrive and repair it. The hole is about two feet wide and eight to 10 feet long, Whitehead said. It is three to four feet deep and has exposed a gas line under the street.

This sinkhole in Harrisburg, PA was the 2nd one in two weeks underneath their city streets. Then, later the same morning, another sinkhole nearby the first one. I'd be wondering what's up after three sinkholes in the same town. These are blamed on soil erosion, the result of a damaged water pipe, of course. Now they've evacuated homes near the sinkholes and are urging residents to boil water.


A Harrisburg trash truck became caught this morning in a collapsed sink hole in the vicinity of 4th and Maclay streets, according to a Harrisburg media advisory. The truck was successfully removed at 3:30 p.m. today, the advisory states. The sink hole was apparently caused by soil erosion beneath the street surface resulting from a damaged water pipe connection, the release states. A boil water advisory was issued to impacted homes. The break could have resulted in an increased risk of microbial contamination to residents in the neighborhood. This is the second sink hole in the region in recent weeks. A sink hole closed the right lane of westbound Route 30 near Shoe House Road in Hellam Township last week until crews could repair it.

A second sinkhole on Fourth Street near Maclay Street in Harrisburg collapsed at around 11 last night, hours after a morning sinkhole trapped a garbage truck and led to a boil-water advisory, spokesman Robert Philbin said in a press release. The newer sinkhole resulted in the loss of water, gas and sewer services, so the city is suggesting people in 2102-2163 North Fourth Street evacuate. A temporary emergency shelter is open at Pine Street Presbyterian Church, 234 South St., provided by the American Red Cross.

Has there given any thought to the excessive gas drilling and fracking? I just can't help but think that as they suck the pressurized gas out of the earth and replace with chemical mixed water that it has to be disrupting the balance of the earth in some way. Maybe it sounds far fetched, but seems that these sink holes have started happening more and more frequently once the big gas boom went crazy. There is some concern and speculation that the fracking is causing earthquakes, so maybe there is a correlation to the sink holes as well? I know that all of the official stories say that fracking doesn't cause earth quakes, but yet the gas company knocked on my door and asked if they could put a seismograph in my back yard. If no relation, why the monitoring?
Whether related to fracking or not, there are just too many things going on of late to dismiss these happenings as mere coincidence and awareness due to news traveling faster and to more ppl.
Earthquakes in odd areas,
Sink holes opening up all over the world,
wild weather, increased storm intensity,
dormant volcanos waking up and active volcanos that are starting to become more active,
bird die offs
fish die offs
animals - both wild and domestic acting strangely
ppl acting strangely (going crazy, babbling & incoherent thots, the whole zombie like reports)
strange light anomolies in the skies
strange earth/sky noises

You can't tell me that these are all not related to something! What, I'm not sure, but whether folks think watching the LA sinkhole is important or not to them, it is to me and should be to far more people including the TPTB.

Feel free to add to the list of crazy, it's early and I haven't had my quota of coffee yet to remember them all.

I agree with you that I think its all related but I think its more along the lines of the methane amounts being released into the atmosphere from the fracking. I have a thread about dangerous gases in my signature that discusses in great detail the connection between all this but I don't go into detail on the causes of the increase in methane release, but I do believe fracking is one of the main causes.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Methane traps heat 25 times more than carbon dioxide, so this speeds up the warming of the atmosphere. Methane levels have risen sharply since 2007, right around the time that hydrolic fracking took off. Methane levels have increased over the past five years, which in turn is causing atmospheric heating, which in turn causes more methane release due to the permafrost and glacial melt where methane gas is trapped but then released, and also another cause of methane release is warm and moist rice paddies, which are in major abundance in China. The warmer the atmosphere, the warmer the rice paddies, and so goes the chain reaction.



Over the past couple hundred years methane levels have risen 150% to what they were for 400,000 years prior and this is because of industrialization. The main causes are livestock, rice paddies, landfill out-gassing, oil and gas extraction and coal mining. But from the late 1990's till 2007 it was said to have leveled off somewhat, and then in 2007 it began increasing again and rapidly. Like I said, the same time hydrolic fracking took off.

Harrisburg sinkholes: 15 families have been displaced because of water and gas issues.


Saturday morning a breakfast was held at the Trinity Church of God on North Fourth Street. Not only did people get a hot meal, they could pick up cases of water and talk to representatives from the Red Cross about housing and other needs. Currently the Red Cross is helping over 15 families displaced because of the sinkhole. Read more at fox43.com...

Residents in Harrisburg seek answers


It's going to be at least a week before the water is turned back on, and even longer — perhaps a month — before sewer service returns to the residents on North Fourth Street where the road collapsed from two sinkholes.


Texas Brine sues to stop state order for wells


BATON ROUGE -- A Houston-based company has asked a state court in Baton Rouge to permanently block the Louisiana conservation commissioner's order for new exploratory wells and other steps meant to monitor the effects of a huge sinkhole in Ascension Parish. Texas Brine Co. LLC also challenges Commissioner James Welsh's declaration of an emergency, which let him order the steps without a hearing. The lawsuit was filed Dec. 28. It says Welsh ignored "more reasonable, scientifically sound and safer methods" for reaching his goals. Welsh ordered Texas Brine to start the first of two 6,000-foot-deep exploratory wells by Jan. 15. The lawsuit says those wells could increase the risk of danger to the public and environment.

Yes, I've been following that thread of yours. I appreciate your research and knowlege. The big gas is headed into NY now and there are all sorts of salt mines up in that area, will be interesting to see what kinds of things start happening there. I'll do what I can to get any of that information to you, as you know, MSM doesn't cover what happens locally unless it kills off boat loads of ppl.

you've concentrated on the US - there are other sinkholes appearing around the world.

This article quote is from British Geological Society page here

"There have been many well documented occurrences of sinkholes forming beneath broken water mains, unlined storm-water culverts and leaking swimming pools."
for a rational explanation for 'some' of them.

Sinkhole Updates:

Add sinkholes to 'new normal' of major earth changes worldwide




Just as collapsing buildings and erupting volcanoes kicked into high gear in December, so too did the number of explosions and sinkholes, which are almost too numerous to track.


This article has a great list of sinkholes in December.


Massive sinkholes and other odd happenings pop up daily. Have you ever wondered why mainstream media avoids such topics? If you have heard of these events, it was probably not from mainstream media reports and, if so, it was certainly not given in-depth coverage, no mention of people killed falling into sinkholes, exploding manhole covers flying off hitting people or tipping cars, or sinkholes swallowing homes and miles of road.


Chattanooga residents stranded because of sinkhole


SIGNAL MOUNTAIN, Tenn. (AP) — An old mineshaft on Signal Mountain has become an impediment to a few homeowners when their access road over it began collapsing. The Chattanooga Times Free Press (http://(link tracking not allowed)/XjMtRo ) reported a state contractor was scheduled to fill in the old shaft Tuesday. The homeowners became stranded over the weekend when the hole opened on a private road. Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation environmental specialist James Finley said the mine shaft is about 20 feet deep and the collapsed area is about 8 feet wide. Finley said the few inches of soil was too weak to drive a car over.

One of the most dangerous aspects of the sinkhole spreading are the nearby caves filled with Butane Gas stored by the US Government.

The surrounding water supplies have already been compromised as well as the forest showing visible destruction of all plant and animal life. This is something that has not been able to be contained.

New York sidewalk sinkhole: Ground collapses under woman in Upper East Side



On Friday, Jan 11, 2013, in the Upper East Side of New York, a sidewalk sinkhole opened under a woman who was waiting for a bus. The 31-year-old Queens woman had been huddled up against the wall of Atomic Wings at the Blue Room Grill on the corner of East 60th Street and Second Avenue, seeking shelter from the rain, when the sidewalk below her gave way around 9:15 p.m.

Sinkhole develops on Broadmoor neighborhood street.
Updated: Jan 12, 2013 9:50 PM CST By Kerry Kirspel
- A large sinkhole that formed Friday night in Shreveport's Broadmoor neighborhood is causing some traffic woes. The sinkhole developed at the corner of Grover Place and India Drive. Neighbors say they heard running water and called the city. A 10- to 12-inch water pipe had broken in half. Crews set up a barricade to keep vehicles from driving into the large hole until repairs can be made

World still grapples with sinkhole epidemic as Chinese village suffers 20 sinkholes in last 5 months


Residents in the village of Lianyuan in southern China’s Hunan Province have been treading rather gingerly these last few months. Over 20 sinkholes have opened up in the ground since last September. The cave-ins, which range in size, have seen houses collapse and rivers run dry. And there is never any warning as to where and when the sinkholes occur. According to local authorities, the main reason for the cave-ins is the number of coalmines in the area. It is not clear what steps are being taken to prevent further sinkholes from appearing

Hi lurksoften, Was glad to see you added the latest sinkhole in Louisiana, the one in Shreveport, Broadmoor area neighborhood. There have been quite a few disturbing developments occurring in Louisiana of late and I'm glad rezlooper (sp) started this post. I'm glad to see some folks have taken an interest and are keeping up on situations here.

I have been living in this area for over 25 years now and I can tell you that I definitely feel fracking has been the cause of many problems here in this state and in Texas as well. There are a lot more tremblors in both areas of late...not huge ones but nevertheless...especially in the Bayou Corne location. This once beautiful state has changed drastically thanx to the oil/gas/fracking situation. I had to leave a few properties I owned because of fracking taking over and believe me, that process does a lot to change the land near these wells and drilling areas. The ground constantly shakes/vibrates from the drilling and explosions that occur during the process. When you can feel your property shimmie and shake all the time you just have to know the ground and shale and water is being affected big-time. Stands to reason that the process can and does create sinkholes and other types of damage as well. There are wells even in town areas and neighborhoods, hard to believe but true. I fear this entire state is going to have a terrible disaster eventually as a consequence of all that has been mentioned.

A local woman in Haughton, a town near Camp Minden where we had that explosion and so forth, has stated she has been seeing "bubbling" in her swampy land/yard area as she has several acres. Another sinkhole in the making? That's in NW Lousiana now. Not too far from Shreveport.

Rezlooper, Thank you very much for giving attention to this very important issue of the sinkholes. The latest one here in Shreveport gives one pause for thought. I have even wondered if all the happenings at nearby Camp Minden weren't somehow partly a consequence of the sinkhole problem. Not the explosion necessarly but all the other issues and little news locally relevant to it all. If gases are expelled from these holes and/or salt domes...I suppose bad things can occur especially should a sinkhole appear in such an area. Just wondering.

Every sinkhole the world over isn't from fracking of course....some other dynamics may come in to play as well, but we do know there are a lot of oil/gas folks doing their thing world-wide so one has to wonder about some of it. I often wonder if the Gulf oil spill may be having some kind of drastic affect on/under Louisiana land as well. So much occurring here can't help speculating. Thanx again for your work, consideration, and attention to the sinkhole scenarios.
