Global Warming Real or Fake?

Is global warming a true event or one just concocted by the media to scare the living crap out of everyone? Some say it’s going to cause a worldwide economic collapse, destroy agriculture, reduce wildlife, impact our ecosystem, and may even lead to human extinction. Others say it’s not real at all and that there isn’t any evidence of global warming what-so-ever.

What if the truth lies somewhere in between? What if we’re definitely experiencing a rise in temperature, but it’s not as dire as the mainstream has us thinking?

What if it’s overblown by the media and misrepresented to you and me? Or, it’s simply misunderstood altogether? What if humans are contributing to the effect, but it’s also a cyclical event and has happened countless times in history–with or without humans?

Let’s do some research and study the EPICA ice core sample for a moment, which is an ice core sample showing the last 800,000 years of temperature and CO2 emissions on planet earth. There are other ice core samples to gather data from, such as the IPCC 650,000-year ice core sample and the CDIAC 400,000-year ice core sample, but let’s dive into the one that shows the largest date range.

EPICA:

Give or take a few thousand years, we have an average ice age period that lasts roughly a 100,000 years. We then have an interglacial (warming) period that lasts about 13,000 to 16,000 years, give or take a thousand years or so. Directly after that interglacial (warming) age, we go right into an ice age for roughly another 100,000 years followed by another interglacial age for 13,000 to 16,000 years. Keep in mind, there is a transition period between each age, sometimes lasting 6,000 years or 10,000 years. Sometimes longer, sometimes shorter.

The Greenland ice core samples, although not as far back in date, reach the same conclusions, especially with CO2 spikes and falls.

This pattern repeats over and over throughout earth’s history.

Right now, we’re in the last stages of an interglacial age. So it seems.

When you look at the EPICA ice core sample, you’ll see that there have been warmer times in the past right before a slow descent into an ice age. There have also been colder times before a slow descent into an ice age. For whatever reason, whether it be greenhouse gasses or the natural rhythms of the earth, there seems to be a spike in heat just before a transition into an ice age.

So, what occurs during this process?

Science has found that 12,500 years ago our water levels rose 300-400 feet across the entire globe. When you look at the ice core samples, you’ll see that 12,500 years ago was also the time when another interglacial (warming) age began. Things heated up, the water levels rose, and the planet’s water to land ratio changed, becoming more water — which happens during an interglacial age. A majority of the planet’s polar caps melted and the ice caps and glaciers receded.

*Side note: If Atlantis was indeed real, this could be the cause of it’s sinking. Plato gave a date for Atlantis’s deluge and that date correlates with the beginning of our most current interglacial age, which again, began 12,500 years ago.

Now, in this current interglacial age, the waters are rising again as the world heats up even more. If it’s because of factory farming (the biggest contributor to CO2 and methane gasses) or fossil fuels, and/or deforestation, then we are probably speeding up this global warming trend. If so, green technologies could replace our current energy systems to ease us into the next age. On the other hand, since we continue to use fossil fuels, we may be hastening the earth’s warming process and it will only hasten more.

As the waters continue to rise in this day and age, the land will continue to erode, and the coastal regions throughout the world will drastically change. People will have to move more inland.

Once the warm spike fades, just like it has countless times in the past, we’ll start to descend into an ice age. The waters will recede 400 to 600 feet, and 100,000 years of an ice age will begin.

It’s like clockwork.

We’ve been taught that the ice age would kill almost everyone, but that’s the movies. In my opinion, it’s not true. When an ice age occurs, the polar ice caps form, coating the upper and lower portions of our planet in thick, dense ice. Populations then move to warmer environments, anywhere below Wyoming and above Chili. The equatorial regions are always fine and dandy, although not as warm as they are during an interglacial age.

So, are we doomed?

Maybe it’s something to embrace. With each ice age, the waters recede near the equator, leaving us with more beautiful, rich land to thrive on. It’s a beautiful time of discovery.

So, here’s my two cents. If it weren’t for deforestation, factory farms, and fossil fuels, and if we allowed green energy, such as Tesla free energy, solar power, and Keshe split compositors and plasma batteries, then we’d go through this transition in a more natural way.

Or, I’m wrong and the ice core samples are bogus. Nonetheless, one thing is for sure, the earth is changing, magnetic north is moving 200 feet per year, and regardless of what the media says, there is more kindness in the world than ever before.

This is all in my humble opinion and research. I don’t know if it made any sense. And, I apologize if it didn’t.

Take a look at the British Antarctic Survey. It will give you a good deal more knowledge than I ever could.

5 Morning Rituals for Success

5 Morning Rituals to Get Your Day off to the Best Start Ever!

I’m a writer. I write Science fiction, dabbling in Fantasy here and there. But I don’t do any writing until I finish my morning rituals.

What do I mean?

I used to work for Anthony Robbins. He taught us several amazing routines to get our day started on the right track. I still use some of his routines today while incorporating others that also seem to work well.

A brief background: I used to be a sports therapist with almost twenty years experience in that business, teaching healthy habits, better posture and correct walking patterns to my clients, along with performing deep tissue massage, propreoceptive neuromuscular facilitation, and osteopathic-like techniques. That was a mouthful. I just wanted to give you a quick credibility check.

I digress…

…and to the rituals we go.

~ Ritual One ~

Make Your Bed.

The first thing I do in the morning is make my bed. It’s quick and it’s easy. It tells your mind and body that you are ready to start the day. My son taught me this from his military training.

Why is this important? It only takes one minute and starts a healthy habit for the day. It’s a constructive and organized routine that equals movement, accomplishment, and it is your first “success” of the day. It’s the first goal you tackle, and the first goal you complete. I even read somewhere that making your bed in the morning kicks off a ripple effect to better overall decisions throughout your day. You’re taking the morning by the horns and telling the day that you are ready, in control, and are willing to achieve your goals.

The effect of this routine is priceless. It not only gives you a greater sense of well being, it also brings organization to your life — immediately. Believe it or not, the more you do this ritual, the more your thoughts and actions become organized. An organized room eventually leads to an organized home. An organized home reduces stress and creates a clarity of mind.

There’s a lot of “organized” in that last paragraph.

The best part? It only takes a minute to make your bed.

~ Ritual Two ~

Drink lemon water.

If you look up the benefits of lemon water, it will lead you to thousands of google results. This is something that Anthony Robbins taught me, and it’s something I do every morning.

Water should be the first thing you consume after waking up. Why? You’ve spent all night taking shallow breaths. Sometimes — and this isn’t for everyone — you may have spent a minute in the night not breathing at all, or snoring, or, or, or…

What has accumulated through the night with that type of breathing? Toxins. Lemon water is one of the quickest ways to detox and refresh your body, bringing more vitality to you within the first few minutes of your day.

Here is a short of what it does:

  • Boosts your immune system
  • Hydrates your lymph system
  • Wakes you up
  • Promotes healthier skin
  • Improves your mood
  • Detoxes your liver
  • Balances your pH level
  • Helps weight loss
  • Freshens your breath
  • Nourishes you with Vitamin C
  • Boosts your energy level
  • It’s antibacterial in nature, containing pectin fibers that help clean your colon
  • Aids with proper functioning of your central nervous system

So, the first thing one should do after making their bed is to get some filtered water, pour it in an 8 to 12 oz glass, and either place a drop of doTERRA’s lemon oil (like I do) in that glass of water, or cut an organic lemon in half, and squeeze that half of lemon into that glass of water.

Don’t gulp it down. Drink it slowly. Ideally, you want to enjoy it while doing the next ritual.

~ Ritual Three ~

Daily Gratification.

Grab a pen and paper, or your journal. Write ten things that you are grateful for in this moment. If you’re broke, be grateful that you have money. If you are rich, be grateful you have money. Do you see that? Just. Be. Grateful. What will it harm? Nothing. What will you gain? Everything.

I learned this from life coach, Lia Dunlap. Look her up.

Do you like the wind that is flowing through your window and touching your skin? Write that down and be grateful for it.

Here is a few from my list:

  1. I am grateful for the talk I had with my daughter last night.
  2. I am grateful that my counseling session yesterday as it helped me with my financial questions.
  3. I am grateful that my books are selling better than ever.
  4. I am grateful…

…you get the point. Gratitude is one of the best, if not the best, magnets to a more fulfilling life. The more you get into this habit, the more your life will transform. Don’t be afraid to open up when you are writing these gratitudes. And, try not to be surprised if you start to tear up. Tears cleanse the soul.

*Side Note that I learned from Lia Dunlap about goals: If you have goals that you would like to accomplish, then after you have completed your ten gratitudes, this is a good time to visualize the end result of your goal(s), feeling what you would feel when you accomplish your goal(s), imagine you have already achieved your goal(s) and placing yourself in the picture, and fill that picture with as much detail as possible.

~ Ritual Four ~

Exercise.

Even for just five or ten minutes. I exercise between twenty and forty minutes every morning. I exercise on something called the cellerciser, a specially made mini-trampoline that folds up and can be stored anywhere without hassle.

If you’d rather get outside and go for a ten, twenty, or sixty minute walk, then even better. Being in nature is one of the best ways to ground and re-energize, plus walking everyday is extremely healthy.

Whatever exercise you do, do it well and with intention to better your day. Always try to improve your daily exercise from one day to the next. Walk an extra mile today, or run an extra minute. The idea is to increase your activity from one day to the next. This tells your body, soul, and mind that you are increasing and improving your life.

~ Ritual Five ~

Smoothie.

This is my favorite of all my rituals. Why? Because it tastes so dang good. Do this after you exercise.

If you have a blender or a vitamix, then this is for you. I like to change my smoothies up every so often as to not dull myself with the same ingredients every morning, but for this writing, I’ll just give you one recipe. A yummy smoothie I had recently:

  • 1 organic banana
  • 1 organic orange
  • A handful of organic strawberries
  • A handful of organic frozen strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon of grade B maple syrup (great mineral content)
  • 1 tablespoon of spirulina (a superfood)
  • A half a cup of organic coconut milk or filtered water (I use filtered water on most days)

~ Ritual 6 ~

I start writing. I’ve been able to improve my writing because of these basic rituals. I type faster regarding word count (how many words I can type an hour), plus I have a clearer, more organized mind. Overall, I simply can get more done throughout the day.

~ ~ ~

I know, I told you there were only 5 rituals. In truth, we have a dozen or more rituals we do daily, either consciously or unconsciously. The best rituals are the ones that start our day off right because it cascades into the rest of the day.

I hope this helped you a little bit or a lot. I wrote it as laymen as I could, so everyone could get the gist of my 5 morning rituals.

Also, remember to click on the heart after reading this. It gets more readers to this article and if you feel this article helped you in some way, then paying it forward is another good ritual to include, or continue, in your life.

Much Love!
