This is further to my above comment concerning tubes in the earth and what moves the tectonic plates. Thomas Gold hypothesized that there were hundreds of thousands of tubes in the mantle that carried liquid methane and dissolved heavy metals up to the surface of the earth. Gold wrote a book that had about 50 independent specific geological evidence/formation examples any one of which proved that theory.
Thomas Gold’s theory explains why there are hydrocarbons deposits on the earth and what is the source for the water on the surface of the earth.
Same theory explains why CH4 is continually being pushed into the biosphere. This explains why human CO2 emissions are not affecting atmospheric CO2. Salby’s and others finding. For that to be physically true, there is a much larger sink and source of CO2 into the atmosphere than assumed by CAGW.
CAGW assumed that oil and gas deposits on the surface of the earth were formed from biological material. Oddly organic theory is an urban legend. There are now hundreds of observations that disprove the organic theory.
CAGW assumes the only new source of CO2 and H2O into the atmosphere is from volcanic activity. This is a small source of CO2 and H2O. It cannot explain what replace water that is dragged down into the mantle where it binds with elements at high temperature and pressure and is no longer available as liquid water.
Seismic study reveals 3 times more water dragged into Earth’s interior
Slow-motion collisions of tectonic plates under the ocean drag about three times more water down into the deep Earth than previously estimated, according to a first-of-its-kind seismic study that spans the Mariana Trench.
The earth was struck by a Mars sized object about 100 million years after it was formed. That collision formed the moon and stripped the earth’s mantle of water and CH4. To explain the existence of water and hydrocarbons on the surface of the earth, the late veneer theory was created. This theory required a late bombment of the earth from comets or asteroids. It has now been confirmed there as no significant late bombardment of the earth
Deep earth release CH4 (This theory explains what is the new source of CO2 that replace the CO2 that is dragged down into the ocean carried by biological matter,)
;This is the late astrophysics, Thomas Gold’s theory, that all of the hydrocarbons on the surface of the earth and the earth’s oceans were caused by CH4 that is released from the earth’s liquid core when it crystallizes.
Gold’s theory explains the Canadian heavy oil deposits. Canadian Alberta heavy oil deposits are three geological separate regions in the Canadian province of Alberta that contain bitious material that melts at 300C and that contains a large amount of heavy metals.
When the Canadian heavy oil deposits formed something pushed the liquid material out at 300C into a massive sand deposit which protected the hydrocarbon from sun and air.
The three Alberta heavy oil deposits are 60 to 80 meters thick and collectively cover an area about the same as the UK. These three hydrocarbon deposits could supply all of the US hydrocarbon needs for 80 years.
The organic theory of oil is not a theory, it was created by the American Association of Petroleum engineers in an API issued document entitled the Origin of Oil. The organic theory cannot explain the heavy metals, CH12/C13 ratio changes, and so on. Gold has 50 specific observations in his book of real geological formations that massive amounts of CH4 have been pushed up from the core of the planet and that CH4 carries with heavy metals.
It is known that the core contains up to around 10% CH4 (Sloan Deep Earth Conference which has held to discuss observations that support the assertion that there is a massive amount of CH4 in the core of the earth and that CH4 is the explanation for hydrocarbons and water on the surface of the planet, comment of one of the presenters based on the analysis wave speed).
There must be a light element in the earth’s liquid core to explain wave speed. And the discovery of the tubes in the mantel requires a physical explanation as to what could create tubes in the mantel.
At the time of the Sloan Deep Earth conference the discovery of the tubes in the mantel had not been made.
It has been known for a long time that there is a massive structure in the earth that is causing unexplained reflections of waves are produced from seismic events. The reflected waves from any one seismic event does not have sufficient information to determine the complex structure.
About 5 years ago, using a AI technique where the information of all of the seismic waves observed is analyzed at once to provide sufficient info to determine the structure. The structure has tubes that run down to the core of the earth and that are connected in a complex lattice in the mantel below the earth’s crust.
CH4 is bond in the liquid core as the CH4 molecule at extremely high pressures bonds with metals. When the core crystallizations the liquid methane is pushed out of the core at super high pressure.
Because the liquid CH4 binds with metals, a sheath forms about the liquid methane. This sheath keeps the methane in the tube and transmits the core force up the tube to push what every is at the top.
The liquid CH4 in the tubes brings with it heavy metals that were in the earth’s core. This explains why oil deposits have heavy metals in them and the amount of heavy metals increases with crude viscosity. This physical explanation for oil and gas deposits also explains why there Helium gas in every oil and gas deposit.
The CH4 caries heavy metals up to the surface. As the pressure reduces or do to other physical reasons the heavy metals including uranium and thorium dropout, below the oil or gas deposits. The CH4 is continually pushed in the tubes so it keeps a path from the solid uranium and thorium open which allows the helium that is produced when the radioactive elements decay. The only commercial source of helium is from oil and gas reserves.
The abiotic explanation is the earth’s liquid core is gradually solidifying which causes super high pressure CH4 to be extrude from the core of the earth. There is therefore a large continual source of CH4 moving into mantel, a portion of which continually moves into the atmosphere.
There are hundreds of observations that support the deep earth CH4 theory.
Scientists may have discovered the secret behind the notorious Bermuda Triangle: methane bubble explosions. Giant craters on the seabed around Norway’s coast have been discovered by scientists, marking areas where massive bubbles of methane may have exploded.
The large chasms on the ocean floor are around half a mile wide and 150ft deep. They could have been caused by gas leaking from deposits of oil and gas buried deeper in the sea floor. The gases are thought to accumulate in sea-floor sediments before bursting through the sea bed and into the surrounding waters.
Scientists have recently developed radar that can show detailed images of the sea bed, according to a Sunday Times report. The graphics vividly depict areas of methane seepage around the globe. The discoveries may offer scientific explanations for reports from sailors of water starting to bubble and foam with no apparent cause.
“Multiple giant craters exist on the sea floor in an area in the west-central Barents sea… and are probably a cause of enormous blowouts of gas,” said researchers at the Arctic University of Norway. “The crater area is likely to represent one of the largest hotspots for shallow marine methane release in the Arctic.”
A 165-year-old mystery
The area, also known as the “Devil’s Triangle”, is a western area of the North Atlantic Ocean bounded by Bermuda, Puerto Rico and a point near Melbourne, Florida, where numerous ships and aircraft have mysteriously disappeared throughout the ages. Since records began in 1851, it is estimated that around 8,127 people have been lost in the Bermuda Triangle.
The bedrock of these seas has many magnetic anomalies that can produce misleading compass readings. The deposits of frozen methane gas can explode in violent outbursts – methane blowouts, – capable of sinking even large vessels
The same CH4 release caused the Mississippi, New Madrid earthquake.
In the known history of the world, no other earthquakes have lasted so long or produced so much evidence of damage as the New Madrid earthquakes. Three of the earthquakes are on the list of America’s top earthquakes: the first one on December 16, 1811, a magnitude of 8.1 on the Richter scale; the second on January 23, 1812, at 7.8; and the third on February 7, 1812, at as much as 8.8 magnitude.
The world’s largest sand boil was created by the New Madrid earthquake. It is 1.4 miles long and 136 acres in extent, located in the Bootheel of Missouri, about eight miles west of Hayti, Missouri. Locals call it “The Beach.” Other, much smaller, sand boils are found throughout the area. (William: Sand boils occur when there is a sudden release of CH4.)
Seismic Tar Balls
Small pellets up to golf ball sized tar balls are found in sand boils and fissures. They are petroleum that has been solidified, or “petroliferous nodules.”
The skies turned dark during the earthquakes, so dark that lighted lamps didn’t help. The air smelled bad, and it was hard to breathe. It is speculated that it was smog containing dust particles caused by the eruption of warm water into cold air. (William: The fog is caused by the CH4 that cools when it expands. The bad smell is sulfur that is contained in the CH4. )
Cooling Oceans Indeed. Note the massive drop in the global ocean temperature anomaly this year ... with no large Nino. Almost to the magnitude of the 1998 drop after our largest documented Nino ... and it's not likely over yet. Panic time in CO2 land. Bets on whether we get back to an anomaly of 0.25, which was the Nina base following the 1998-99 Nino? It has already dropped 0.3, which is half the distance. That would cripple some fragile minds.
Seems that this cooling is not just the Nino Regions. I don't have the tropical tidbits seven-day anomaly changes timeseries, but it seems that the geographically extensive negative changes have been consistent for a time now. Seemingly a lot of heat being shed?

Hey Naut, you are back! How are you doing now?
it was a standard Saturday just a slow in driver's side rear of the jeep - so off to my normal tire place. Got it fixed and drove home last clear sentient moment being parking in crowded garage alongside my wife's small SUV. Apparently, I then just walked in and stood playing with the material on the top of the Sofa. Wife asked if I could talk then proposed I sat down as food was ready for 'tea'. I sat down but did not start eating this was an alert and 9-11 was called. A team of fieries appeared and immediately said I needed an 'ambulance' the ambulance crew decided I needed an urgent casevac. I got a helicopter ride to UF Shands hospital neurological unit for an emergency brain operation with a 35 staple hole required. Initially, stroke and glioma have very similar presentation, so until the neurologist gets to dabble in the grey amorphous oatmeal that in moments of excitement I have called a brain - they really do not know if the reason is a 'bleed'/clot (aka Stroke) or glioma cancerous tumour. In my case as the title gives away it was an uncontained stage 4 glioma. Now for the WTF moment. Wake up in a bed facing a VDU advertising the hospital with something jammed into my mouth/throat I was in an ICU (but did NOT realize it) - the classic where am I? How TF did I get here? Does my wife know where I am? etc etc - all questions asked by me using classic gesticulate. Ask for a pen and paper that always works right? Nope. Eventually a sheet of paper with an alphabet is produced. This does not really assist as it is actually quite difficult to communicate single letter by single letter. I start gesticulate for get me a keyboard-- blank response although one would have thought that it would be the simplest comms device with an otherwise non-communicating patient.
So now I have been in occupational and physical therapy which is in reality recovery from 3 weeks ICU and a pneumonia, drain and reventilation. You haven't lived until a 22 year old blonde therapist wakes you at 2 am to check for pressure sores and diaper rash! I got to the therapy unit here and the first thing 'my' nurse said was that it was important that I had a bowel movement. And she produced a bottle that I recognized as one that had my wife sprinting to the toilet prior to a colonoscopy. So I said You realize that I am effectively bedridden and you are going to give me that? I really think my wife would appreciate being here to watch. (She did and she did) There then followed a conference over my stomach while they discussed the relative merits of lubricated and non lubricated catheters and their sizes. "Nurse; please relax you will just feel a little prick on your belly" Uproarious laughter from wife. The other thing that an ICU does is remove any natural/learned continence training. I now have a lot more sympathy for 2 year olds learning control.

Come the cold, the high-browed types from Oxford and elsewhere should be put to work tending flocks and cultivating fields so's they could learn their climate from the bottom up. They missed a couple of chapters. Would do them good ... and the country might finally get something useful out of them.
You are our cold , wet lead to the next northern winter.
Unusually cool here today: 12.5C -> 21.9C after a forecast top of 26C.
Here too. We are 1/10th of your C and it's the third week in April. You have to go back to 1986 and 1983 to find a similar event in our local Book of Life. And before that, the 1960s. Warmth at the end of April is a solemn right at 39 N mid-continent, and not to be given up lightly. I fear it is a bad omen.
