Dark Fog of War?

September 27, 2013

Favim.com-34765OK, I freaked myself out with that bridge collapse thing so I went back and researched fog and it appears many times fog does some really weird stuff in addition to fogbows, which makes sense in my model now that I think I know what triggers some of the fog that is linked to jet streams and/or cyclones/anticyclones.

The “London Fog” that killed over ten thousand people
Londoners will tell you that London is not actually that foggy. The famous London fog was actually the result of pollution. That’s unpleasant, but for a few days in 1952, it turned into something more: The Great Smog. By the time the cloud that choked out the sun lifted, twelve thousand people were dead.

On the evening of December 5th, above London, though, an anticyclone was brewing[think swirling oscillating strings of dark/vacuum energy]. An anticyclone is a high-pressure area that keeps other air from flowing in. It allowed a warmish cap of air to settle over London. When the air is cold, hot chimney smoke rises quickly until it cools and disperses in the upper atmosphere. An atmosphere of hot air keeps the chimney smoke from rising and escaping. So while the anticyclone kept new air from coming in, the warm air on the ground kept the smoke from leaving. It was all trapped over a city that was still burning more fuel.

The debate about whether coal smoke affected human health ended the winter of 1952-53 in London. On December 8th, cool air from across the English Channel settled over the Thames Valley and did not move. Within a week more than 3,000 deaths than usual had occurred. The medical essayist David Bates, then a young physician experienced in wartime medicine, recalls that officials could not imagine that the environment could produce more civilian casualties in London than any single incident of the war. In sheer scale this disaster could not be ignored. In one week alone 4,703 people died, compared with 1,852 during the same week the previous year.

Bates recounts the reluctance of officials to accept that so many people had suddenly dropped dead merely from breathing dirty air. He adds: ‘The public realised this earlier than the government of the day.’

Donora Death Fog:
You may not have heard of the Donora Death Fog, but if you are interested in climate change, you should have. This notorious weather event is arguably one of the most pivotal moments responsible for the adoption of air quality regulations in the United States.   Though more of a “Smog” than a “Fog,” this aptly named phenomenon left 20 dead and half a town hospitalized in its wake during the fall of 1948. It showed all of the characteristics of an atmospheric inversion, an event in which air stops circulating and is trapped close to the ground.  The combination of trapped toxic gasses and early morning mists yielded disastrous effects.

Early on October 26, an anticyclone traded places with a regular East Coast storm over Western Pennsylvania. An anticyclone is exactly what you think—the opposite of a cyclone. Instead of a concentrated low-pressure system, an anticyclone can cover large areas and consists of a high pressure system which draws air down through the system and out in a clockwise motion. This natural phenomena itself does not commonly result in death. When combined with the geographic location and industrial nature of Donora, the ensuing unnatural weather occurrence wreaked havoc on the town’s air-based mass balances.

The now poisonous air contained more than just particulates—it also contained hydrofluoric acid, sulfur dioxide, and carbon monoxide. In a news clip published in Chemical and Engineering News on December 13, 1948, it was revealed that the victims of the smog experienced acute fluorine poisoning determined by the extreme fluorine levels in the blood of the deceased (12 to 25 times the normal levels) and the near-asthmatic breathing of the survivors. Humans were not the only victims—all of the crops in the area perished. Corn, which is highly sensitive to fluorine exposure, was especially devastated.

Miasma theory
The miasma theory (also called the miasmatic theory) held thatdiseases such as cholerachlamydia or the Black Death were caused by a miasma (Μίασμα, ancient Greek: “pollution”), a noxious form of “bad air”, also known as “night air“. The theory held that the origin of epidemic was due to a miasma, emanating from rotting organic matter.[1]

Death Fog
“In a lakeside village in Cameroon, West Africa, 2,000 people mysteriously die in one night. Witnesses claim their neighbors were suffocated by a white fog as they slept. Without any other clues, the question remains, was this Death Fog natural or man-made? In this area of volcanic activity, could the deaths have been caused by toxic fumes? Or was something even more sinister at work?”

THE REASON THE ATMOSPHERE ALL OF A SUDDEN BECOMES TOXIC IS THAT DARK/VACUUM ENERGY HAS INCREASED AND IS IONIZING AND DONATING PROTONS TO ALL OF THE THE NORMALLY INERT PARTICULATE MATTER AND MOLECULES IN THE ATMOSPHERE.  IT IS ALSO GRADUALLY IONIZING HUMANS. BAD STUFF FOR BIOLOGY IN HIGH CONCENTRATIONS. BAD, BAD, BAD, BAD, BAD. A little is good for variety and a few showers.
