Active Climate Rescue Initiative
Active Climate Rescue Initiative is founded to actively rescue our climate by encouraging positive climate change through water relocation into earth’s water deficit areas. Anyplace in the world where there is a dry depression is a place where there is a moisture deficit. These places are the key to reversing climate change. By infusing these places with water from an open flow inlet, moisture can be reintroduced into the local environment through hydrologic processes. Let’s take this one piece at a time.
For those who care… Active Climate Rescue Initiative is a Michigan Non-Profit Corporation approved by the USA IRS as a 501.c.3 Public Charity.
Step 1 … Move the Water!
Action: Reintroduce water into the dry depression.
The water source will most likely be an ocean, but it may be river water diverted from a nearby watershed. The water will be introduced from a higher elevation into a lower elevation via a water path (river/canal/tunnel/pipe) designed for gravity flow of water. The water path must be kept free from blockage so that the water can continue to flow freely to replace water loss from the depression by evaporation or other mechanisms. The water path may have to have a throttle to inhibit water flow so that the water level will not rise past a specific level. It may be infeasible to maximize the water level in specific depressions because of human activities in the immediate area around the depression. Infusing as much water as possible into the depression provides the greatest opportunity for accomplishing the rescue of our climate from global warming.
At this point one immediate benefit has been accomplished: If the water was diverted directly from an ocean; the ocean level has been reduced. If the water is diverted from a river emptying into an ocean; the ocean level has been reduced. The reduction of the ocean level is equal to the volume of water introduced into the depression; thus, it is water which is no longer residing in the ocean. Granted, this is a small reduction in ocean level, but every bit helps.
Action: There really isn’t a Step-2. No further human action is required.
No further human action is required. Step-1 is all that is required, and hydrologic processes do the rest. Let’s review what will occur through natural hydrologic processes.
Water will evaporate from the surface of the newly formed lake/inland-sea. The water will be taken into the air for redistribution in the surrounding area. What water is removed will be replaced via the open water path.
Water returned to the local environment in the form of dew on the ground in mornings.
Water will be returned to the environment in the form of rain.
The dew and rain will be cleaned water, suitable for drinking, for watering plants and irrigating crops.
Plants will grow when they have an ongoing supply of water/rain.
Plants retain water in their structure. This is more water which is not immediately returned to the ocean but retained as long as the plant lives. Yes, if you think in the case of trees, it is a long and slow process. Grasses on the other hand are much faster in growing and they also retain water.
Plants clean the air of CO2. They return breathable O2 into the air, and use the C as building block for the plant structures. The C that is used by/in the plant will be held in the plant while it lives and be integrated into the soil as the plant eventually decomposes.
Plants are natural air conditioners. As water evaporates from plant leaves; the air is cooled. As plants shade the ground, the ground temperature is lowered.
Lower temperature ground allows the ground to better retain rain water. Some of the water can refill underground aquifers; again, slowing the water’s return to the ocean.
As the rain water is deposited on the ground, it is again evaporated into the air to repeat the above actions for an area further from the original dry depression.
Given enough time the hydrologic action may re-hydrate the entire desert region. Think of this on the scale of Sahara, or Israel/Jordan. Just by keeping the waterways open to keep the depressions full, these areas could be returned to healthy fertile areas growing food for many people around the world. The plants and the ground retain water, so the ocean levels are lower. The environment in these very hot places is cooled, which will cool the entire globe. The large bodies of water will allow cities to flourish in their vicinity, thus reducing overcrowding from other places.
