A plumbic cloud is going to kill half million Earthlings. Slowly. From disease or hunger. It is the size of three United States and continues expanding. It’s nucleus is 3.000 meters thick. It’s been forming for decades.
Seen from the Moon under the Full Earth, it constitutes a 3x4 cm portrait of the human insensitivity. This poison cocktail is parked above ¼ of the human population. Constituted and strengthened by increasing monoxides, dioxides, sulfates, aerosols, and miscellaneous gases, this bio-chemical soup is made of 35% of the old poverty pollution and 65% of the new richness pollution. We’re talking about the larger concentration of bio-chemical pollutants of the planet. Something more tenebrous than the ozone hole.
The scientific secrets of the “Asian Shadow”
(which reduced the sunlight intensity in the vastness affected by 14%) are under investigation by the team led by the Indian physicist Victor Ramanathan. There’s no report available so far.
The phenomenon is awesome not properly upon its content, but for its extension. The thing stretches from the car-choked streets of Japan to the voids of Afghanistan (now lifted to the status of scratch of hell’s map). A cumulative and irreversible environmental aggression.
If it’s true that the flight of a butterfly in Zimbabwe can trigger a storm in Nebraska, the “Asian Shadow”
must be making a mess of the ecosystems all over the world. It cannot be ruled out as the responsible for the recent flooding cycle, far above the historic average of the continent’s monsoon.
