4 Seasons

Posted By Snow at 11/30/2010

يخرج الحي من الميت [Q6:95]
Spring seems like a burst of life after winter

The 4 seasons - spring, summer, autumn & winter - happen when the intensity of sunlight changes on Earth due to the tilt of the Earth as it circles the sun. In the summer, the northern hemisphere is more exposed to direct sunlight; while in winter it is less exposed to it.

The changes of season shows - a change in temperature changes our whole environment. The weather changes. Animals hibernate or migrate. Plants become dormant.

A change in temperature really affects us.

So what will happen if Earth becomes extremely warm? It had been extremely warm. So it is not always about will it happen, because it already happened. During the Permian period, global warming is a suspect for our planet's greatest mass extinction - the Great Dying. [sa]

So knowing our history, scientists ponder our future on this planet. Our human activities, like burning fossil fuels (vehicles) & deforestation may heat the Earth. ظهر الفساد في البر والبحر بما كسبت أيدي الناس [Q30:41] Earth is the only livable planet for us, and I imagine a hotter Earth is like Venus. Venus' surface temperature alone is 467°C. So it's important for us to care for the environment.
اعوذب لله من الشيطان الرجيم
واختلاف الليل والنهار وما أنزل الله من السماء من رزق
فأحيا به الأرض بعد موتها وتصريف الرياح آيات لقوم يعقلون
And (in) the alternation of night and day, and (in) what Allah sends down from the sky of provision and gives life thereby to the earth after its lifelessness, and (in His) directing of the winds are signs for a people who reason.
[Holy Quran 45:5]
Anyway like the seasons, life on Earth had lived & died & lived again. It has happened. After the Permian died, Earth was resurrected - with the next generation of species - the dinosaurs. Then the dinosaurs died as well, and the Earth resurrects again with humans.

It's amazing. The resurrection. إن يشأ يذهبكم ويأت بخلق جديد [Q14:19-20]
Que sera sera. I seek refuge in Allah SWT from errors. والله أعلم

The last time I read about Siberia & methane, it followed with the Permian mass extinction. It was a period when a series of massive volcanic eruptions flooded ancient Siberia with enormous lava. "more than 1,200 billion tons of methane and 4,000 billion tons of sulfur dioxide could have emerged from the Siberian Traps eruption" [permian]

Now there's a crater there on the Yamal Peninsula, said to release methane. "As temperatures rose, the researchers suggest, permafrost thawed and collapsed, releasing methane that had been trapped in the icy ground... the comparative impact of [methane gas] on climate change is over 20 times greater than [carbon dioxide]... Arctic region is home to large reservoirs of methane" [siberian crater]

Will it warm the Earth & make it unstable (quakes, craters, landslides etc)?
Only Allah SWT knows best. والله أعلم

Environmentally, the world cannot continue its high carbon - high consumption - high waste lifestyle, in which it calls as "development" or "productivity". Wasteful consumption needs more energy to supply it, which could mean more (carbon) emission. Since the Industrial Revolution, human-related emissions are responsible for the increase of CO2 in the atmosphere, now at its highest in 2 million years. [pic graph | nasa, epa]

Some say we're approaching the 6th extinction event? (m-m)

Even if the oil price fall, the need is to reduce oil consumption as to not pay a high environmental price. Perhaps its best for oil producers to have no takers - I really wish no one will take the oil - I wish the people of Zagros will not take the oil (petrodollar). ♠ فلا يأخذ منه شيئاً

We'll have no oil revenue. But with a nice environment, we can eat fresh from farms, drink from clear springs, breathe clean air, strengthen body with physical activities... الحمد لله

BTW can heat under the earth (geothermal) power turbines so we can get clean energy?


Welcome
Peace be upon you
