WHY THE OCEAN IN THE NORTH POLE DOESN’T DRIP
In geological terms the Arctic Ocean, sitting atop the world, doesn’t drip due to that constantgravity. With earth’s center of mass at its inner core, gravity pulls inward in all directions whether you’re stationed in the Arctic, the equator or the Antarctic. Gravity’s unidirectional force is equilaterally tugging down to that point, holding down you and everything else including that drip of Arctic Ocean water. So, that’s why on top of the world, North Polar waters don’t drip down into the rest of the world.
Suppose one dug a hole all the way through earth. Then supposing some more, that one decides to jump into the hole. Discounting heat encountered (by gosh the terrific heat down there) during his freefall, when would he actually stop falling?
In climatic terms though, the Arctic Ocean encircling the North Pole is starting to drip, drip and drip some more. With atmospheric conditions now in place inducing global warming, accentuated by man, polar ice caps are increasingly thawing, turning into slush, dripping and going away. This can be alarming, for the polar ice caps serve as air conditioning for the rest of earth.
Greenhouse gases allow sunlight in, but when reflected back into the atmosphere, the gases have the potential to trap sunlight and its resultant heat. Unfortunately global warming feeds itself. White surfaces as ice caps reflect heat. The more they melt and disappear the more darker waters are exposed absorbing heat. The warmer the atmosphere becomes, the more carbon dioxide is displaced into oceans, loosening deep water’s cold and pressure hold on hydrous methane, releasing it into the atmosphere where methane gas is 21 times more potent than carbon dioxide in trapping heat.
We know man is contributing for in nature the isotope carbon 12 makes up 99% of all earth’s carbon. In nature, the isotope carbon 14 is found only in trace amounts, but synthetically produced by man’s emissions it’s found much more abundantly. Polar ice core samples are a layered snapshot of atmospheric conditions through time. For recent times, in which corresponds with man’s industrial activity, guess which carbon isotope is showing itself more? That’s rightcarbon 14.
Now, the answer to the original aforementioned question: Once he fell all the way to the center he’d quit falling, though quite uncomfortable due to that confounded extraneous heat. If earth’s gravitational pull were shaped like an arrow, the arrowheads emanating from all directions would be traveling towards earth’s core, whereupon in reaching their target, would all meet and converge at earth’s inner gravitational center, their endpoint.
