concept of runaway 'feedback loops' appears to be prevalent in most
present aspects of meteorology and global warming - i.e. when warming
seas cause ice-melt that re-activates defunct volcanoes which then
continue to warm the sea and cause more environmental upheaval and
so on, and so on. This is essential in relating the present period
of gobal warming to the new geological history of Mars.
In 'Mars Mission',
in my Earth to Mars contraction model, I have noted that the present
positioning of hydrated minerals on Mars ( phyllosilicates - which
can only form in the presence of water ), dating from the Phyllocian
era, 4 billion years ago, correspond to the present areas of the
Earth's surface most susceptible to the increase in volcanic and
seismic activity, along the fault lines and earthquake belts, brought
about partly by global warming - and ultimately perpetuated by the
runaway 'feedback loop'.
