                            CARBON ENERGY SCIENCE
©By Henry Kroll
                        From my book, COSMOLOGICAL ICE AGES
            The bulk of the energy consumed on this planet is still generated by the burning of carbon. Where did all the carbon come from, you ask? 
            After our sun left its birthplace in Orion Earth and Mars went into the Huronian Glaciation where mile deep sheets of ice covered the single ocean and there was five-mile deep inc on the single continent known as Pangaea. All of the carbon at the core of the Earth came from the dust clouds in Orion. The iron in your blood, the calcium in your bones and the other elements that make up our reality mostly came from Orion however some of it is space dust.
            At that time about 700-million years ago Earth had a high pressure carbon dioxide atmosphere of around 750 pounds per square inch. The atmosphere extended three thousand miles above the planet. There was no way for sunlight to get through such an atmosphere to make the plankton bloom in the oceans to release free oxygen. A billion years is a long time to drift in the cold of space. {SIRIUS A and little SIRIUS B below.}


         {You got to understand that it's difficult to get good pictures of Sirius B because the light is invisible and glass lenses filter out UV.} 

Our solar  system eventually drifted between the the two giant stars Procyon and Sirius. These giant two-solar-mass, stars may have been swapped into out galaxy during one of many past galactic collisions. Sirius B used to be 6 solar masses before it became a white dwarf ejecting 3.5 solar masses of silicon and iron in the neighborhood. Earth collected a lot of that iron dust which bound up the free oxygen as soon as it was released by plants. We were much closer to Sirius A and little Sirius B and Sirius B with 1.5 solar masses (more gravity than our Sun) came around, grabbed hold of our Sun and put it into a nice tight orbit around Sirius A.

We became part of the Sirius System for the next 750-million years. Sirius B puts out more than 100 times the Ultraviolet Light of our sun in the invisible 350 to 400 nano meter wave length. Plants, however like this light. 

Sirius B is the only thing out there capable of penetrating a 3,000-mile deep atmosphere. The reason I wrote the huge book was to make people understand where coal, oil, gas and limestone come from. When you are driving down the road most of the energy that makes your car move came from Sirius B!
{You can read all about the history of Earth in my book, COSMOLOGICAL ICE AGES.}

           Earth was half as big as it is today. There was one ocean and one continent. This CO2 atmosphere continuously being replenished by volcanoes but over time due to the yearly accretion of 40-thousand tons of space dust and expansion of the mid ocean volcanic rifts over hundreds of million years the Earth expanded to its present size. It was this process of expansion that the atmospheric pressure was reduced by half.
            The other half of Earth’s high pressure atmosphere was used up by photosynthesis and laid down as col, oil and limestone. Where did the 20.8 % oxygen atmosphere come from? During the 80-million year Carboniferous Age 400-million years ago the Sun was in a much closer orbit to another group of stars that increased the average Earth temperature to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. One of those stars puts out more than 100 times the ultraviolet light of our sun above the range of human sight. Earth had incoming ultraviolet light 24 hours a day. In a few short months diatoms filled up the oceans to depths of 30,000 feet deep or more. Diatoms have the ability to multiply eight times in 24 hours given enough CO2, warm temperatures and 24-hours of light.
Most people don’t know what diatoms are. They are the little calcium carbonate creatures they use to filter your drinking water and fill your cat litter box. They evolved different shapes to survive at different depths in the oceans to take advantage of the different wave lengths of UV light. Most large oil fields are ancient meteor impacts that fused the hydrogen in the water with the carbon to make hydrocarbons. If you were to read my book COSMOLOGICAL ICE AGES you will discover that some other sources of oil is made from the subduction of continental plates that melt the limestone sheets which are composed of calcium carbonate. Then you have the shale oil which is still made of carbonate ocean sediments. 

    After John D. Rockefeller discovered oil on the beach in Quait in the 1920’s and his company Standard Oil started making billions, other government-subsidized companies like Sinclair Oil (sin clear) and Winsor Oil (now British Petroleum) got on the band wagon. That’s when we became energy slaves.
Practically every war since was fought over oil plus other resource like lithium or gold. Religion is just a cover. The reason they left FREEDOM OF RELIGION in the constitution in the first place was so they could pit one fanatical group against another. Wake up people!
 All wars are rich men wars. They manipulate nations to create wars to make them richer. They sell arms to both sides of the conflict. They have their banks loan money to both sides to buy the arms from their factories thereby putting both nations in debt. When the war is over they step in to rebuild pretending to be charitable good Samaritans but they take the gold oil and drugs as compensation. It’s known as the GOD trade.


The reason I wrote COSMOLOGICAL ICE AGES was to enlighten people as to where the energy came from that make their cars go down the road. By plotting our course through space I discovered the light source that created the coal, oil and limestone. It may be alright for humanity to release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. It is plant food and CO2 is a trace gas amounting to only .033% of our atmosphere. It’s a trace gas necessary to feed people yet our government wants to use your tax dollars to pump it underground. You can’t grow food without it. Go figure! How dumb is that? Wake up people!
Ninety-eight percent of the atmosphere on this planet is gone. Originally when Earth came out of the billion-year Huronian Glaciation with a 750 PSI atmosphere. Now it is down to 14.5 PSI at sea level. 
We lost ½ the oxygen-producing plankton in the oceans. Two thirds of the oxygen-producing rain forests have been cut down and burned to make charcoal while the rich corporations want to keep us using up the oxygen by burning things forever.
Back in the 1950's our government created the mega farms to out-produce the Communists using fertilizer made from natural gas and mechanized agriculture that uses oil. Now most all our soil is depleted of minerals. Poor farming methods caused half our topsoil to blown away in the Dust Bowl washed down rivers into the oceans. Half the fish in the oceans  are gone. God gave us dominion over the planet. What’s he going to do when he comes back to find out what we have done?
Where do we go from here? Hundreds of millions of people died fighting over oil. Don’t forget our brave soldiers who so willingly gave their lives in these wars.  
Below is a picture of the Grayling platform blowout in Cook Inlet. The got the men off safely with a helicopter. By some miracle it never caught fire. It blew ocean water up over 1000 feet for an entire week then it subsided to about 500 feet above the rig for over a month. How much gas was wasted is anybody's guess--probably enough to light up New York City for a couple years.

Seemingly timed to coincide both with Earth Day and President Obama's proposed expansion of corporate access to U.S. waters for offshore oil drilling, the April 20 explosion of the Transocean oil rig Deepwater Horizon has exposed how risky offshore oil drilling can be, particularly in deep water in the absence of effective regulation. The sinking of the oil rig April 22 (Earth Day) led to the deaths of 11 oil rig workers – not the first BP safety violations – and could lead to the contamination of wide swaths of the Gulf Coast, or even, because of the loop current (map), large swaths of Florida, the Florida Keys and the entire East Coast.
Originally, authorities said the broken well was spilling 1,000 barrels a day. Then the Gulf oil spill was upgraded to 5,000 barrels a day. But independent scientists have said there could be 5-10 times as much oil spilling from the well, and BP's only successful attempt at mitigation is capturing just 1,000 barrels a day. The oil slick on the surface is bigger than Connecticut, but the spill at other depths is likely far larger, and threatens marine life throughout the ocean food chain. If independent estimates are correct, the spill is already larger than the Exxon Valdez

[The Exxon Valdez spill was 22 million gallons not 11.]


The Usumacinta is a mat-supported jack-up based on the Bethlehem JU-200-MC design. It was delivered in 1982 by Bethlehem Steel in Singapore and is currently owned by Perforadora Central of Mexico. In October 2007, the Usumacinta was contracted to drill at PEMEX's Kab-101 platform in the Bay of Campeche. The Kab-101 platform is a light production Sea Pony type platform, installed by PEMEX in 1994, which had two wells producing a daily output of around 5700 bbls oil and 700,000 cubic feet of natural gas. The Usumacinta was contracted to complete drilling work on a third well, named Kab-103, when it collided with the Kab-101 platform and ruptured the Kab-101's production tree.
Storm Collision
On Sunday, 21 October 2007, the Usumacinta was brought into position alongside the Kab-101 platform to finish drilling the Kab-103 well. By Tuesday, 23 October, a cold weather front passed through the Gulf of Mexico bringing storm winds of 130km/hr with waves of 6-8m. The adverse weather conditions caused oscillating movements of Usumacinta jack-up from around 1200 hours on the 23 October. These movements caused the cantilever deck of the Usumacinta to strike the top of the production valve tree on the Kab-101 platform, resulting in a leak of oil and gas. At 1420 hours, the subsurface safety valves of wells 101 and 121 were closed by PEMEX personnel, but the valves were unable to seal completely allowing the continued leaking of oil and gas. At around 1535 hours on 23 October, the 81 personnel on the Usumacinta were evacuated by lifeboat, with the ship Morrison Tide providing fire support. Rough seas hampered the rescue operation and appear to have caused the break-up of at least one liferaft.
Well control personnel were despatched to the Kab-101, with operations delayed by further bad weather and H2S release. Well control operations commenced with attempts to inject heavy mud followed by cement. Operations were again delayed on 13 November when a spark initiated by on-going work caused a fire to break out. The fire was extinguished the following day on 14 November at 2350 hours. A second fire broke out on 20 November, causing the collapse of the Usumacinta's derrick and major damage to the cantilever and connecting bridge. The fire was extinguished the same day with no injuries.
Several phases of work then commenced, including debris removal from the Usumacinta, the attachment of a valve for controlled flaring, the installation of a blow-out preventer and finally the shutting in of the well followed by killing with heavy mud and plugging with cement. By 17 December 2007, PEMEX reported complete control of the well.
There were 21 reported deaths during the evacuation of the Usumacinta, with one worker missing, presumed dead.

2012 Mayan and Aztec Calendar and Mars Face

Aztec Calendar
I was looking at the Aztec calendar this morning when I was struck by the similarity of the man’s face in the center to the face on Mars… You decide? 

After he arrived on Earth he went native. He had to wear earrings and a beret in his lower lip to fit in... Many believe high technology and knowledge was brought to Earth by space travelers. 

The sacred Aztec calendar is properly called the Eagle Bowl. It represents the solar deity Tonatiuh. The amazingly accurate calendar has been in use in various forms for more than 2,000 years. A Zapotec prophecy, based on the Eagle Bowl, states:
“After Thirteen Heavens of Decreasing Choice, and Nine Hells of Increasing Doom, the Tree of Life shall blossom with a fruit never before known in the creation, and that fruit shall be the New Spirit of Men.”

The 13 Heavens and 9 Hells were each 52 years long (1,144 years total). Each of the 9 Hells were to be worse than the last. On the final day of the last Hell (August 17, 1987), Tezcatlipoca, god of death, would remove his mask of jade to reveal himself as Quetzelcoatl, god of peace.

The above picture is the Nan King pyramid in China. It is older and larger than the Great Pyramid in Egypt. There are three pyramids in this complex. The Chinese are hiding it by planting trees on its slope. Check it out on Google Earth.

In the mythology of the Aztecs, the first age of mankind ended with the animals devouring 
humans. The second age was finished by wind, the third by fire, and the fourth by water. The present fifth epoch is called Nahui-Olin (Sun of Earthquake), which began in 3113 BC and will end on December 24, 2011. It will be the last destruction of human existence on Earth. The date coincides closely with that determined by the brothers McKenna in The Invisible Landscape as “the end of history” indicated by their computer analysis of the ancient Chinese oracle-calendar, the I Ching.

The Mayan calendar is divided into Seven Ages of Man. The fourth epoch ended in August 1987. The Mayan calendar comes to an end on Sunday, December 23, 2012. Only a few people will survive the catastrophe that ensues. In the fifth age, humanity will realize its spiritual destiny. In the sixth age, we will realize God within ourselves, and in the seventh age we will become so spiritual that we will be telepathic.

Forensic Analysis of the Face on Mars
by Kynthia
Many are familiar with the work of forensic artists from television shows such as "Quincy," or the more recent "CSI," experts who use their talents to reconstruct a face from just the anatomy of a skull. They do this by studying the shape of the skull and then extrapolating how the muscle tissue would attach to it and what the new surface areas would be like.
What we know about the Cydonia plateau is that during the Martian year, the prevailing winds — sometimes at over 300 miles per hour -- come sweeping out of the west, moving from direction of the City over the Face, heading eastward towards the Cliff.
When you examine this newest MGS image closely (E03-00824), it is easy to see this wind pattern. The City [left) side of the face appears significantly worn away, revealing a granular, etched surface looking very austere and gaunt.
Geologist Ron Nicks noted:
There is a stunning dichotomy from one side of the feature to the other. On the left are areas of patterned ground, especially around what has been noted as "the eye". The pattern resembles that of a very recognizable form here at home. Elephant hide has a similar textural pattern. And, no, I don't think it is intended to represent "elephant hide." That's simply an example of what the patterning resembles. Recognize also that the left [City] half of the feature is that half most likely exposed to the prevailing winds, at least for as long as Mars has had its present orbit and rotational axis. Yet, that is the side that actually appears at first glance to be less eroded. However, that first impression may not be necessarily so. The right [Cliff] side, the downwind side, would have been subject to swirling winds, and aerodynamic "plucking" (for what its worth, given the rarity of atmosphere compared to Earth). It would seem that the left [City] side would have been ground down and present a faceted side much like that of common ventifacts on Earth. But that's not the case. Or is it? The left [City] side of the feature shows pits, rounded edges and muted angles, whereas the right [Cliff] side displays highly angular cliffs, smooth (albeit somewhat blurry) surfaces, and smoothly hollowed out basins (perhaps created as a result of swirling vortices and eddies coming over the crest (nose), carrying erosive sands). In actuality, the case can be made that the right [Cliff] side of the feature has shown less erosion than the left. Just the opposite of what I believe most others are currently claiming from this image. There are layers of material clearly evident on the right [Cliff] side, where such layering is all but absent on the left [City] side. With the left being more exposed to the wind, one could expect that a surface might be swept clean enough to expose layering -- it isn't so. No such layering is at all obvious, as it is on the right [Cliff] side. In fact, from the geologic standpoint and based on this evidence, I would find it difficult to argue that the left and right sides of this Cydonia feature were composed of even the same material.

Just over the crest of the Face’s nose (on the Cliff side), you can see the edges of what appears to be a "casing" (the "layering" that Ron Nicks talks about — see terrestrial examples below), where the original Face surface is obviously peeling away. Just below, in the ravines furrowing the Cliff side, are apparent deposits of material and debris flowing down slope from this higher up erosion (technically called "mass wasting").

Based on abundant structural clues in the latest, high-resolution image, quite possibly (going back to our forensic model), when initially created, the City side of the Face had a fuller appearance. With time (how much time?!), this side — because of those relentless prevailing winds -- simply eroded away at a faster rate than the "protected" side, the side facing toward the Cliff. Look at the deterioration of our own Sphinx today, with a lifespan of a brief "moment" compared to the "250,000 years plus" estimated that the Face on Mars has stood against those winds. Surely, if five thousand years can do such extensive damage to the body of the Sphinx on Earth, so as to make portions of it devoid of detail and almost unrecognizable, what could we expect of an ancient "monument" abandoned on the windswept surface of the planet Mars for a hundred times as long ..? In fact, it's amazing that we see as much detail on the exposed side of the Cydonia Face as we do: nostrils on the nose, and even a surviving eyeball -- complete with under lid.

Below is one of the more striking hundred-million-year-old faces on mars. Princess Abadela?? She is a mile high and two miles long-- obviously a young Caucasian in her teens with fine features. The wind blew sand dunes up over her chin. Some say there are birds--parakeets or budgies carved into the rock on either side of her face.

Obama appointed two devout Muslims to homeland security posts.

Obama and Janet Napolitano appointed Arif Alikhan, a devout Muslim, as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development. DHS Secretary, Janet Napolitano swore-in Kareem Shora, a devout Muslim, who was born in Damascus, Syria, as ADC National Executive Director, as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC).

NOTE: Has anyone ever heard a new government official being identified as a 'devout Catholic," a  "devout Jew," or a "devout Protestant"...?
Just wondering.              

Devout Muslims being appointed to critical Homeland Security positions?
Doesn't this make you feel safer already??
That should make our home land much safer, huh!?

Wasn't it "devout Muslim men" who flew planes into U.S. buildings 10 years ago?

Wasn't it a "devout Muslim man" who killed 13 at Fort Hood ?

War on drugs revealed as total hoax - US military admits to guarding, assisting lucrative opium trade in Afghanistan
Date: Thu, 01 Dec 2011 11:22:47 -0600
Nothing changed since Vietnam. Drug farms in Nicaragua, Mexico and Central America not enough. The world is not enough…

War on drugs revealed as total hoax - US military admits to guarding, assisting lucrative opium trade in Afghanistan

Wednesday, November 16, 2011 by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer (NaturalNews)
Afghanistan is, by far, the largest grower and exporter of opium in the world today, cultivating a 92 percent market share of the global opium trade. But what may shock many is the fact that the US military has been specifically tasked with guarding Afghan poppy fields, from which opium is derived, in order to protect this multibillion dollar industry that enriches Wall Street, the CIA, MI6, and various other groups that profit big time from this illicit drug trade scheme.

Prior to the tragic events of September 11, 2001, Afghanistan was hardly even a world player in growing poppy, which is used to produce both illegal heroin and pharmaceutical-grade morphine. In fact, the Taliban had been actively destroying poppy fields as part of an effort to rid the country of this harmful plant, as was reported by thePittsburgh
Post-Gazetteon February 16, 2001, in a piece entitledNation's opium production virtually wiped out(

But after 9/11, the US military-industrial complex quickly invaded Afghanistan and began facilitating the reinstatement of the country's poppy industry. According to the United Nations Drug Control Program (UNDCP), opium cultivation increased by 657 percent in 2002 after the US military invaded the country under the direction of then-President George W. Bush (

CIA responsible for reinstating opium industry in Afghanistan after 9/11 More recently, The New York Times (NYT) reported that the brother of current Afghan President Hamid Karzai had actually been on the payroll of the CIA for at least eight years prior to this information going public in 2009. Ahmed Wali Karzai was a crucial player in reinstating the country's opium drug trade, known as Golden Crescent, and the CIA had been financing the endeavor behind the scenes. (

"The Golden Crescent drug trade, (also known as the GOD trade: Gold Oil and Drugs) launched by the CIA in the early 1980s, continues to be protected by US intelligence, in liaison with NATO occupation forces and the British military," wrote Prof. Michel Chossudovsky in a 2007 report, before it was revealed that Ahmed Wali Karzai was on the CIA payroll. "The proceeds of this lucrative multibillion dollar contraband are deposited in Western banks. Almost the totality of revenues accrue to corporate interests and criminal syndicates outside Afghanistan" (

But the mainstream media has been peddling a different story to the American public. FOX News, for instance, aired a propaganda piece back in 2010 claiming that military personnel are having to protect the Afghan poppy fields, rather than destroy them, in order to keep the locals happy and to avoid a potential "security risk" -- and FOX News reporter Geraldo Rivera can be heard blatantly lying about poppy farmers being financially supported by the Taliban, rather than the CIA and other foreign interests.

You can watch that clip here:

So while tens of thousands of Americans continue to be harmed or killed every year by overdoses from drugs originating from this illicit opium trade, and while cultivation of innocuous crops like marijuana and hemp remains illegal in the US, the American military is actively guarding the very poppy fields in Afghanistan that fuel the global drug trade.
Something is terribly wrong with this picture.
