Another Global Warming cause…. that no one is concerned about!
While the media is all hyped up about all the causes of global warming, from cows farting to coal plant emissions to volcanoes erupting…. I have yet to come across a study of the world’s ever increasing population.
Let me clarify a little bit. I am not EVEN talking about the obvious impact of each person’s carbon footprint, i.e. carbon dioxide creation, the number of food animals each one consumes in a lifetime, nor the amount of gas and electric energy needed for a lifetime of surviving….
To be specific, I am concerned with the actual amount of BODY HEAT generated by each single person on the planet causing the temperature of the planet to increase…
The average tempwererature of a human body is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit, so in the 1800s (just 200 years ago my friends) there were approximately 1 billion people living on the earth! Today there exists approximately 8 billion people. From what I can gather off the internet, each person generates about 100 watts of heat energy per hour or 2400 watts per day or 876,000 watts a year…. just normal everyday existance.
So 876,000 watts of heat energy times 1 BILLION people is 876,000,000,000,000 watts of heat energy (in 1800’s)
sounds like a lot of heat being generated by people just existing in day to day life, huh???
So lets fast forward to 2014 you have to multiply THAT number by 8,
which comes to 7,008,000,000,000,000 or 7 Quadrillion watts of heat energy!!!!
(I had never even heard of that number before!) Thats 7 THOUSAND TRILLIONS!
Now granted temperatures are not additive, in other words, if you put a person into a pool of water that is at 70 degrees, he will eventually raise the waters temperature to a MAXIMUM of 98.6 degrees, if the water was insulated well enough, BUT it would not be additive or go to 168.6 degrees (70 degrees plus 98.6 degrees) but the temperature DOES go up, and the more people you place in that pool, the faster the temperature will go up. This is the same reason a room full of people will gradually warm up during a meeting!
So it is only natural and logical for ME to assume that all these bodies walking around on the planet is causing the air’s temperature to gradually go up, more and more. Every time we touch anything our heat is transmitted into that item we touch. A glass, our desk, each other, our clothes, even our breath heats the air, etc. ALL this heat has to go somewhere. And the more people we create just adds to the amount of heat being generated on the planet!
Again let’s forget about the cars and buses and cows farting making our planet’s climate change, the KEY to it all is the fact of our populations growing out of control. ALL of these issues could be controlled if the population was controlled. Everything is based on the population. At least China has a child “limit”.
This kind of population control would also help the economy, with fewer patients, less burden on social services, more job positions available with fewer people. How long do we let this go unchecked?!?!
Lets see a study on this!
