Intensive future Global Cooling due to Humans reducing the Mass of the planet Earth.
The next time that you are stuck in Traffic, take a moment to ponder how much Oil was needed to make the gasoline for all those cars. Then consider how many cities there are around the globe where the same situation occurs daily.
A standard-size barrel holds 42 U.S. gallons. If one fills a standard-size barrel with petroleum oil that has a density of 881 kg/m3, then that barrel weighs about 300 pounds. (www.reference.com/science/much-barrel-oil-weigh-b29eeb18d34510ef) When that oil is converted to gasoline and other product and then burned. it losses all it”s weight.
Next consider Gravity.
Gravity is most accurately described by the general theory of relativity (proposed by Albert Einstein in 1915) which describes gravity not as a force, but as a consequence of the curvature of spacetime caused by the uneven distribution of mass. The most extreme example of this curvature of spacetime is a black hole, from which nothing—not even light—can escape once past the black hole’s event horizon. However, for most applications, gravity is well approximated by Newton’s law of Universal Gravitation, which describes gravity as a force which causes any two bodies to be attracted to each other, with the force proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gravity)
By removing oil from the Earth and burning it, we are also reducing the weight of this planet and in effect it’s Mass. A Planet with a lower Mass, will be less attracted to our Sun.
Ok, then what?
If you lower the gravitational attraction, then the planet Earth will change its orbit and move away from the Sun. The further that you are from the Sun, the less light and energy will arrive and so less heat.
When you reduce the Weight and as such the Mass of this planet, you have no way to replace it. In the future, there will be a tipping point and this planet Earth will start to move further away from the Sun.
Yes, this is just Vincent Banial’s theory. But it is backed up by Einstein’s general Theory of Relativity which has been accepted by Scientists and Physicists. Since we cannot replace the weight of the oil once it is burned, there is no way to change the course of future history. We may be affecting the future ability of this planet Earth to sustain any form of life.
Some will disagree that we are affecting Earth’s Gravity by reducing it’s weight/mass. There is another proof that this is already happening and that Earth’s Gravitation pull has been reduced.
When you walk outside at night you may see what we call the Moon. Most think that the Moon sits at a fixed distance from the eaarth. That is incorrect. In fact, Earth’s Moon is moving away from the planet Earth. This is scientific fact. Google is your friend. Do a Google Search on it.
Earth’s Moon is not getting smaller. No one is mining it, therfore it’s weight/mass has remained constant. So why is it able to move about one inch per year away from earth? I contend that it is because we are consuming Oil. The Oil has weight which adds to earth’s Mass. When we burn that oil, that weight disappears and so the Gravitation pull of the Earth is lessened.

The Scientific American video above confirms what I am saying about reducing Earth Gravity (listen to what Lucianne Walkowicz, the presenter, says starting at the 1:38 mark.
The 2nd questions which she addresses is about the Moon moving away from the earth. If we continue to reduce the weight/mass of the earth, we will dimish the gravitation pull from the Earth to the Moon and so the Moon will increase the rate at which it moves further away from the earth.
When the Moon finally pulls way away from Earth, the Climate will change. As we continue to consume the planet which we live on, it will pull away from the Sun. A lower mass will have a lower gravitation attraction to the Sun. That will mean less sunlight will hit our Eath. Temperatures will start to fall.
There is much Fear Mongering about so called Global Warming. Proof became voiced (by so called Global Warming Deniers whom I would call Truth Talkers), that there is no such thing happening as Global Warming. So the Fear Mongers changed the name to “Climate Change“. Yes, Earth’s Climate is always changing. We’ve all read about faked Hockey Stick charts. In the past I had posted about counter proofs that there is no Global Warming.

Global Cooling may be something we will not have to worry about. Future generations of Earthlings I believe, will have to face life on a much cooler planet.
Will Future Humanity survive?
Or will Future Humans have to seek out a new planet to call Home?

Darel Carey does not use an Artist’s brush to create his amazing works of art. He uses Electical Tape to create Visual Illusions.
Darel Carey calls this Art Piece “Dimensionalizing the Studio“.
Video is courtesy of the Darel Carey YouTube channel
The following is from his Bio page on his website. It explains what he is trying to create:
Line sequences in varied configurations create an illusion of dimension. I call this Dimensionalization. Two dimensions can be perceived as three, and vice versa. On a two-dimensional space, a flat surface, many lines juxtaposed in varying distances at different points can be perceived as three-dimensional. In a three-dimensional space, following a similar concept, lines moving from the floor to the wall to the ceiling can appear to occupy space in mid-air from various vantage points, which creates a perceived topographical space, transforming the visualized landscape of an area.
This dimensionalizing art compels you to look at a surface or a space differently, to contemplate your own perception and the environment around you. My goal is to navigate the line between what we see and what is, in hopes of better understanding the breadth of our visual perception.“

Chemotherapy can be an effective treatment for Hodgkin’s disease (HD) – a type of lymphoma, which is a blood cancer. Chemotherapy can also be an effective form of treatment for Testicular Cancer.
What about other Cancers?
The following is taken from the abstract of that research Study :
“The overall contribution of curative and adjuvant cytotoxic chemotherapy to 5-year survival in adults was estimated to be 2.3% in Australia and 2.1% in the USA.”
The conclusion as found in the abstract was:
“it is clear that cytotoxic chemotherapy only makes a minor contribution to cancer survival. To justify the continued funding and availability of drugs used in cytotoxic chemotherapy, a rigorous evaluation of the cost-effectiveness and impact on quality of life is urgently required.”.
Found a link using a web search. The link is below ( you have to copy and paste the URL if you wish to visit their site – as you would from a web search):
Basically that is supposed to be a PDF of the results from that study published on Dec 2004 in Clinical Oncology. It lists over twenty different Cancers and the percentage increases in 5 year survival rates for those patients who received Chemotherapy treatment for said Cancer.
Clinical Oncology had also published another research study in November 2004. You can view an abstract at nature.com by clicking on this line.
The following was the conclusion of the Nov 2004 published in Nov 2004:
“Adjuvant chemotherapy after potentially curative surgery can improve 5-year survival by 4% in patients with early-stage non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC, stages IB–IIIA).”.
So after surgery, Chemotherapy may increase the 5 year survival rate in about 4% of the patients. Yes, only 4%.
Using the above quoted studies and being overly generous, in my opinion it may seem that Chemotherapy does not increase the 5 year Survival Rate for about 85% of patients with many forms of Cancer. The exception is that yes it may be a form of effective treatment for Hodgkin’s Disease and for the treatment of Testicular Cancer.
With some Cancers the study chart (see the link to the PDF above) shows Chemotherapy to have zero effect on 5 years Survival Rate.
That leaves the question: Why is Chemotherapy being given to Cancer patients?

- Cannabis , also known as marijuana, is a plant grown in many parts of the world which produces a resin containing compounds called cannabinoids. Some cannabinoids are psychoactive (acting on the brain and changing mood or consciousness) (see Question 1).
- The use of Cannabis for medicinal purposes dates back to ancient times (see Question 3).
- By federal law, the possession of Cannabis is illegal in the United States outside of approved research settings. However, a growing number of states, territories, and the District of Columbia have enacted laws to legalize medical marijuana (see Question 1).
- In the United States, Cannabis is a controlled substance requiring special licensing for its use (see Question 1 and Question 3).
- Cannabinoids are active chemicals in Cannabis that cause drug -like effects throughout the body, including the central nervous system and the immune system (see Question 2).
- The main active cannabinoid in Cannabis is delta-9-THC. Another active cannabinoid is cannabidiol (CBD), which may relieve pain, lower inflammation, and decrease anxiety without causing the “high” of delta-9-THC (see Question 2).
- Cannabinoids can be taken by mouth, inhaled, or sprayed under the tongue (see Question 5).
- Cannabis and cannabinoids have been studied in the laboratory and the clinic for relief of pain, nausea and vomiting, anxiety, and loss of appetite (see Question 6 and Question 7).
- Cannabis and cannabinoids may have benefits in treating the symptoms of cancer or the side effects of cancer therapies. There is growing interest in treating children for symptoms such as nausea with Cannabis and cannabinoids, although studies are limited (see Question 7).
- Two cannabinoids (dronabinol and nabilone) are drugs approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the prevention or treatment of chemotherapy -related nausea and vomiting (see Question 7 and Question 10).
- Cannabis has been shown to kill cancer cells in the laboratory (see Question 6).
- At this time, there is not enough evidence to recommend that patients inhale or ingest Cannabis as a treatment for cancer-related symptoms or side effects of cancer therapy (see Question 7).
- Cannabis is not approved by the FDA for use as a cancer treatment (see Question 9).

Note from Vince: This is am extremely important change as the Cannabis grown by NIDA is an uncommon variety and apparently low in THC. The FDA could approve a Medical Study of the use of high THC Cannabis in the treatment of Cancer, but NIDA always had the final word. If they approved a medical study (their usual common response was “No”) the study had to use the NIDA supplied Cannabis variety.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) announced their intention to grant licenses to additional marijuana growers for research, thereby ending the DEA-imposed 48-year monopoly on federally legal marijuana. Since 1968, the University of Mississippi, under contract to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), has maintained the only facility in the United States with federal permission to grow marijuana for research.
“It’s a complete and total end of the NIDA monopoly! There has been no production monopoly on any other Schedule I substance, like MDMA or LSD—only the cannabis plant. Licensing non-government cannabis producers, and thereby creating a path to FDA approval, will finally facilitate the removal of marijuana from Schedule I, and ultimately allow patients to receive insurance coverage for medical marijuana,” said Rick Doblin, Ph.D., Founder and Executive Director of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS).
MAPS has been working to eliminate this cannabis research blockade since 1999. NIDA’s marijuana is eligible for research, but cannot be sold as a prescription medicine, making it unacceptable to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in future Phase 3 studies. Ending the monopoly finally allows for a pathway to FDA approval for marijuana, which would thereby trigger rescheduling.
In 2001, MAPS partnered with University of Massachusetts-Amherst Professor Lyle Craker, Ph.D., to apply for a DEA license and end the monopoly. In 2007, after years of bureaucratic delays and lengthy legal hearings, a DEA Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) recommended that it would be in the public’s interest to grant Craker the license. In 2009, after almost two more years of delays and less than a week before the inauguration of President Obama, former DEA Administrator Michelle Leonhart rejected the ALJ recommendation. In 2011, Craker sued the DEA in the U.S. First Circuit Court of Appeals. In its 2013 decision, the Court uncritically accepted the DEA’s arguments that NIDA’s monopoly provided “an adequate supply produced under adequately competitive conditions.”
Since the 2013 decision, Craker’s argument that NIDA does not have an adequate supply has become significantly more apparent. NIDA has been unable to provide the strains requested for MAPS’ long-delayed Phase 2 clinical trial of smoked marijuana to treat symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in 76 U.S. veterans. As a result, the study is proceeding with lower potency marijuana than what MAPS researchers requested.
The DEA has previously claimed that U.S. international treaty obligations under the United Nations Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs (Single Convention) require a federal monopoly, but in April 2016, the State Department released a statement clarifying that the Single Convention does not in fact limit the number of U.S. marijuana producers.
Furthermore, the DEA’s 2009 rejection of the ALJ recommendation to license Craker relied heavily on a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) protocol review process, which was eliminated in 2015.
MAPS’ upcoming Phase 2 clinical trial of marijuana for PTSD in veterans is in collaboration with investigators in Phoenix, Arizona, and at Johns Hopkins University, the University of Colorado, and the University of Pennsylvania. The study is funded by a $2.15 million grant to MAPS from the State of Colorado. The study has received full regulatory approval, and will be the first randomized controlled trial of whole plant marijuana as a treatment for PTSD.
Founded in 1986, MAPS is a non-profit research and educational organization working to evaluate the safety and efficacy of botanical marijuana as a potential prescription medicine for specific medical uses approved by the FDA.
