    Sea engulfing Alaskan village - Global Warming Strikes Alaska
    Posted on Wednesday, September 15, 2004 @ 23:52:57 MST by rob

    General Overtone writes: By David Willis
    BBC correspondent in Shishmaref, Alaska

    It is thought to be the most extreme example of global warming on the planet. The village of Shishmaref lies on a tiny island on the edge of the arctic circle - and it is literally being swallowed by the sea.

    Houses the Eskimos have occupied for generations are now wilting and buckled.

    Some have fallen into the sea. Not only is the earth crumbling underfoot, but the waves are rising ominously all around.

    As we walked across the narrow strip of beach that was his playground as a kid, village elder Tony Weyiouanna pointed to a series of barricades that have been erected over the years in the hope of stemming the tide.

    "All of our efforts have been to protect our community," he told me. Has it worked? "Not yet."

    Tony estimates the tide moves an average of 10 feet (three metres) closer to the land every year. When he was growing up, it was roughly 300 feet (91 metres) from where it is now.

    Rising sea-levels

    Professor Gunter Weller, director of the University of Alaska's Center for Global Change and Arctic System Research, says several factors are at play in this part of the Arctic.

    Because temperatures in Alaska have increased by as much as 4.4C over the last 30 years, glaciers are starting to melt, causing the sea levels to rise.

    The increased temperature is also thawing the frozen ground, which is known as permafrost, on which the arctic communities such as Shishmaref were built.

    It is this thawing that is causing the ground to crumble like sand.


    Professor Weller says there are many other villages in Alaska that are suffering similar problems, although not quite on the same scale.

    "Shishmaref is an indication of what to expect in the future in other parts of the world," he told me. "In that respect it is the canary in the coal mine."

    The villagers here have now taken a difficult decision. Staying here indefinitely could put their lives in danger.

    And so instead of fighting nature over land that has been theirs for generations, they have reluctantly concluded that preserving life is more important than preserving their lifestyle.

    Soon this entire village will be relocating to the mainland - making the people of Shishmaref the first refugees of global warming.

    Global Warming will only be prevented by private investment (Score: 1)

    $350 Million was recently gifted to the petroleum companies by the Bush administration, for my exact proposal that the DOE twice refused to fund for $200,000 - the efficient conversion of petroleum into H2. Indirectly, the DOE has valued this single application of my plasma technology at $350 Million and some of the funded companies even tried to buy prototypes from me. Maybe they will decide that the patent should be purchased - then what?

    Now, self funded and without government funding or outside investment, I have constructed the first on board micro-plasma fuel processor prototype as proposed to the DOE. It is based on my New Plasma technology as covered by my US patent. Currently the processor measures 14 x 8 x 3.5 inches. The processor is a sealed unit that cracks "any" quality agricultural oil or petroleum product into hydrogen and removable byproducts. Larger processors will create higher H2 production volumes and after six years of self funded research - outside investment is required to continue. H2 filling stations can be supplied by a processor the size of a mini-van. The prototype processor consumes under 100 watts and a processor large enough to run a vehicle solely on generated hydrogen will also consume under 100 watts, however it will cost considerably more to build. This is possible only because the technology is NEW and not understood scientifically - and the plasma can also make synthetic diamond as certified by Charles Evans and new associates in Hong Kong.

    In the past I have resisted talk of using this Plasma technology to crack the H2 from water. If a private investor is interested in this avenue, now is the time to move forward. By specific modifications to the current fuel processor, the plasma can crack the H2 from water. Built larger, it will produce H2 in great enough volumes to power any sized vehicle - at under 100 watts power draw.

    My plasma technology also offers certified synthetic diamond production while consuming under 100 watts, while other synthetic diamond (diamond like carbon (DLC)) production devices normally operate at over 7 Kilo watts yet produce only a fraction of the Synthetic Diamond that my device can. And the 7 Kw device weighs 1500 pounds while my current synthetic diamond production prototype is under 40 pounds.

    The plasma will also destroy toxic waste and garbage, however the company startup must occur first and Synthetic Diamond or Hydrogen production are avenues of fastest investment return.

    So if everyone only wants to complain and bitch about global warming and not fund the solution, there will come a day when all will be silent - and the only howling will be done by the wind.

    If you are not an accredited investor, please do not ask for further information about the private placement memorandum as by SEC regulation I will not proceed with unaccredited investors.

    Warmest Regards,
    Chris Arnold
