The Sun Is Losing Mass,

The Sun Is Losing Mass, Its Getting Larger and Hotter At The Same Time

Our Sun has provided Earth with light for billions of years. This light has allowed life to evolve and flourish on our small planet, but it comes at a cost.

The Sun’s light is produced by fusion in the Sun’s core. Hydrogen atoms combine to produce helium and light. The light is produced because the mass of a helium atom is slightly smaller than the mass of the four hydrogen atoms that formed it. As Einstein first pointed out, mass and energy can transform into each other, so the loss of mass means a gain of energy in the form of light. The light radiates from the Sun, warming our Earth, but that also means over time the Sun loses mass. The Sun consumes mass to produce light.

As the Sun loses mass its gravitational pull on the planets weakens slightly. The Sun can’t hold the planets as strongly as it used to, so the planets drift a bit further away from the Sun. At least that’s the theory. The shift of the planets is so small that it’s difficult to measure. There have been some studies that [seemed to see the effect with Earth, but the result isn’t particularly strong. The usual method of determining planetary distance is to bounce radio signals off them, and it’s difficult to do it precisely enough to determine the Sun’s changing mass.

There is a much better way to measure the position of planets. Simply put a spacecraft in orbit around it. When the Cassini spacecraft was placed in orbit around Saturn, astronomers used radio signals from Cassini to measure the position of Saturn accurate to within a mile. We can do this because we know exactly what signal comes from the spacecraft, so any shift in that signal tells us how the spacecraft moves. When the Messenger spacecraft was placed in orbit, astronomers used the same technique to measure the position of Mercury. Using seven years of data they could also determine how Mercury’s motion changed over time. They did it precisely enough to observe the weakening of the Sun’s gravitational tug.1 They found that the Sun’s pull is weakening by about 0.4 trillionths of a percent per year. That agrees with estimates of the Sun’s mass loss due to core fusion.

Mercury has long been used as a test of Einstein’s theories. Its motion was the first confirmation that Einstein’s theory of gravity could be correct. It’s only fitting that Mercury has now been used to confirm Einstein’s most famous equation.

The Earth orbits the Sun in an elliptical path—which is oval, not circular. It’s 3 million miles nearer every January than in July at its farthest point. Aphelion is the point of the Earth’s orbit that is farthest away from the Sun. Perihelion is the point of the Earth’s orbit that is nearest to the Sun.

Aphelion always happens in early July. About two weeks after the June solstice, Earth is farthest from the Sun.

Perihelion always happens in early January. About two weeks after the December Solstice, Earth is closest to the Sun.

As you can see the fires in Australia started in the axis of Perihelion December, which is the closest to the sun.

Our Sun has been running out of Hydrogen for some time which means its loosing mass, hotter and will continue to do so making the future of our planet unliveable.

 Global warming, the Earth is getting hotter because the Sun is burning more brightly than at any time during the past.  A study by Swiss and German scientists also suggested that increasing radiation from the sun is responsible for recent global climate changes.

Dr Sami Solanki, the director of the renowned Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research in Gottingen, Germany, who led the research, said: “The Sun has been at its strongest over the past 60 years and may now be affecting global temperatures. The Sun is in a changed state. It is brighter than it was a few hundred years ago and this brightening started relatively recently – in the last 100 to 150 years.”

Dr Solanki said that the brighter Sun and higher levels of “greenhouse gases”, such as carbon dioxide, both contributed to the change in the Earth’s temperature but it was impossible to say which had the greater impact. Most scientists agree that greenhouse gases from fossil fuels have contributed to the warming of the planet in the past few decades but have questioned whether a brighter Sun is also responsible for rising temperatures.

 Our Planet has greatly changed in the past century, the green house effect is seen throughout the Planet especially in the Northern  Pole where the thaw of Permafrost began decades sooner and melting faster than expected, it’s causing problems everywhere, houses, rail tracks, landscape are sinking and releasing trapped greenhouse gases that will accelerate human-caused climate change.  The melting of our Glaciers is causing the water level in the ocean to increase and will continue to do so. 

 One of the main causes of green house effect is forest fires; in 2017 the USA reported 71,499 wildfires more than 10 million acres were burned.  In 2018 58,083 wildfires with 8.8 million acres were burned. The 2018 wildfire season involves wildfires on multiple continents. An extremely rare event occurred when wildfires broke out north of the Arctic Circle in Scandinavia, with one burning on the Russia–Finland border near the Barents Sea on July 20 2019.

 By the end of the calendar year, the fires in British Columbia had burned more area than in any prior recorded year; California experienced the single largest (by area) fire on record that destroyed more structures than any other Wildfires in modern history. Similarly, the UK saw the most wildfires ever recorded in a single year, at 76. 

Fires are ravaging all over the world and All the Countries must come together and help each other. This is a global problem one country alone is not enough to stop the fires while others stand by hoping it will go away, while fires are ravaging  across the world, Every country should participate as much as possible and not condemn the country like  Brazil.

Amazon fires: France and Ireland threaten to block EU trade deal. Instead of threatening the countries for not putting the fire out they should participate on helping them to put it out, we must not forget that brazil is a Poor country and need help, the trade deal block would only hurt the people of the country. This should be the same for all countries, we must act together stop all fires across the globe.

Brazil’s President: We Don’t Have The Resources To Fight Amazon Rain Forest Fires       

Bolsonaro told reporters, «The Amazon is bigger than Europe, and how will you fight criminal fires in such an area? We do not have the resources for that. «But at the same time, Bolsonarosaid last week that Brazil doesn’t need foreign aid money after Germany and Norway froze funds because he refused to put the money toward helping the rain forest. The G7 offered 20 million; Canada offered another 15 million dollars. The Brazilian Government needs help not just money as he and many others in South America do not have the technology and resources to fight the fire.

Australia Fires have been raging across the country killing nine people since September, destroying about 1,000 homes and burning more than 12 million acres.

As the country experiences a heat wave in December it had the hottest day on record with an average maximum temperature across the country of 107.4 degrees Fahrenheit — the country’s firefighters are struggling to bring the blazes under control.

Bushfires have always been a feature of Australian life, but this year’s fires are the most intense and destructive since 1974. 

The fires have sharpened calls in the country to take the climate crisis seriously, but the government has refused to accept that climate change has played any role in the unfolding disaster.

As I mention before this is a global problem its not something that you give money to a poor country, walk away and ignoring the outcome. They are not as advance in technology and experience in this kind of fire fighting. When I say it’s a Global problem it means all of the countries in the world.

The forest fires are more toxic and pollutant and in CO2 than anything else in the world they are the prime cause of Greenhouse, Methane release and drastic weather changing that the world has never seen before and this will get worse if we cannot control forest fires.

The New UN will help and educate the world on how to stop the destruction of our forest.

The New United Nations will consist of 8 Groups and they will have a special role on saving our planet; together as a global team they will achieve there mandate, World Peace and prolonging quality of life on earth and Saving Our Children.

OK, So what’s next?  I Have A Plan!

Step 1

We need a Leader not the UN but a New UN Leader (LUN).

That leader would call upon the United Nation countries.

Every Country has to realize that it’s time to react and accept, that the Earth is in trouble.

Step 2

This is today and tomorrow a Global Problem that means every country would need to participate.

The LUN would unite every country and train the military for specific needs;

Hurricanes – Tornados – Forest Fires – Earth Quakes – Tsunamis – natural Disasters and Defence.

Step 3

Now we have a world united together with the same game plan to fight disasters across the planet even before it gets there to minimize the outcome.

It’s as simple as that, you just need a Leader to start the ball rolling.

We are now Pro-Active with the necessary equipment to face any situation across the Globe and by doing so we are prolonging the quality of life for the future of Our Children.

This is also the first step for World Peace.
