16 - Runaway Loops

 

 

The 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'.
