within these 3 days no aircrafts were allowed to fly in the whole usa
now it comes, the air pollution has incredibly sunk and with it the darkening of earth

the result was, due to less air pollution (which obviously was good) and less darkening of earth (which also should be good) the complete opposite happened.
the nights were cooler and the days were hotter. to be exact, a difference to 1C compared to the day before sep 11 and sep 14. within 3 days the temperature has risen 1C!!!!

these are two powers are effective in opposite directions

scientists have claculated that until 2100 the temp could rise about 10C more than today's average

this means every ice in the world will melt, flood catastrophes everywhere, sea level will rise 9m, which means more than 1bn people's living space is affected

but there is even something extremely more dangerous and worse
the frozen methan on the ground of the sea, which are 10000bn tonnes, yes ten thousand billion tons! these would rise from the ground opf the sea into the air, making the whole world a hot desert

methan is dozens of times more dangerous than CO2!!!
The release of that methan is thought to be one of the major contributing factor to the Permian extiction about 250 million years ago. This was the worst extinction ever known, killing around 95% of all life on earth.

Fortunatly we are nowhere near the kind of temperatures to cause that to happen again....Infact we're actually still in a bit of an ice age. The earth is still alot cooler than it was prior to the time of the dinasours. Temperatures dropped after that sending us into the current ice age which is kind of fluxuating in the it's severity(sp?). We happen to be going through a natural rise in temperature at the moment. We are not actually causeing this, it would be happening anyway. We are merely accelerating it. The only danger will be that we cause the mechnasism (namly the pushing of ocean currents to different positions by rising sea levels) to not do it's normal job in bring temperatures back down. Hence and end to the fluxuations and a rise back top temperatures not seen for millions of years. Geologically speaking the planet is in a vary stable condition and has been for several million years - it is that stabilty that has allowed to evolve, now we are in danger of destroying that stability. Whether we'll be ready to deal with the consequences is anyones guess.

continuing the off-topic theme: seems EVERYONE in the world feels not to care anymore, too helpless...

i think people used to really care and feel empowered somehow, but now...

well, when i look at how dramatic the situation in the usa is, any probable effects caused by dubai's projects seem to be not worth to mention

i'm talking about the oil ports at the gulf of mexico. hurricanes are about to increase in power and even come close to this area
when a hurricane reaches the oil port areas, the gulf of mexico would be dead for dozens of years, so don't tell us anything

Yes. Just keep building skyscrapers and use technology to fight nature. Nature is not nice to humans.

That's why we build skyscrapers and other infrastructure to keep us alive and living comfortably.

Dubai-L: i agree with you, i'm also adding its clearly a global problem of global proportions

every region in the world is beginning to suffer the costs of such rampant enviro-raping

A tunnel is also being dug to link the palm fronds to the crescent by using coffer dams.
This means two walls are built in the sea, the water is drained away, and the tunnel is built under the surface of the seabed. The seabed is then restored and covered with rocks, the water is pumped back in and the walls removed.

that's what they are doing there.
