Facts About Thunder and Lightning

1)   Cumulonimbus cloud, which is nothing but an extremely dense, vertically developed charged with electricity causes Thunderstorm and lightning.

2)   The upper portion is positively charged and the middle and lower portions are charged negatively. Discharges takes place between clouds when electricity voltage is large causes lightning.

3)   Rumbles(long rolling sound) of thunder occurs when the electric current in the lightning discharge produces a large amount of heat. This results in the rapid expansion of the local air.

4)   Lighting will have an high impact where Thunder won't do. Hence, it is pretty important to be aware of lightning instead of thunder.

5)   1,800 thunderstorms are taking place all around the world at any time. Which means 16 million a year.

6)   Thunderstorms generates lightening always away from the raining areas.

7)   It will be predicted that lightning and thunder occur at the same time. However,  light travels much faster than sound, owing to this, people usually feel lightning before thunder.

Facts About Earthquake

1)  Earthquake occurs when breaking and shifting of rocks beneath the Earth's surface.

2)  Earthquake is also known as movements of plates below the earth's crust.

3)  When the Earth's plates moves, the rocks in the crust gets pushed and pulled. During this process,  the friction will hold the rocks in place for years and years and when they can't take it anymore, the rocks will suddenly get cracks and shifts. This movement releases waves of energy called an earthquake.

4)  Sensitive instruments, around the world detected 500,000 earthquakes since..

5)  In which, 100,000 earthquakes are felt and 100 earthquakes could cause damage each year.

6)  The largest magnitude recorder ever is 9.5 in Chile on 1960, May 22.

Facts About Ozone Layer Hole

1)  Ozone (03) is basically highly reactive and colorless gas. Each molecule of ozone layer is made up of three oxygen atoms.

2)  In the middle of 1980's, ozone layer above the Antarctic, was particularly impacted by pollution.

3)  Scientists identified in the year 1985, that there is a thinning of the ozone layer in Antartica.

4)  It is now commonly known as the depletion or ozone hole. The ozone layer over Antarctica forms each spring and lasts for 6 weeks approximately.

5)  Ozone is demolished mainly by chlorine(CL) based compounds like chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), chlorinated solvents like carbon tetrachloride, as well as fire-extinguishing chemicals and halons.

6)  It was estimated that 1 chlorine atom could destroy 1,00,000 ozone molecules. Halons emits bromine(BR) atoms, which even more possibility of destroying ozone.

7)  Chlorine formed from swimming pools, industrial plants, sea salt, and volcanoes does not goes up to stratosphere as they combined with water, which causes no effect.

8)  Above atmosphere, the three-oxygen-atom of ozone forms the ozone layer, which helps in shielding the life of the earth from the sun's UV (ultraviolet) radiations.

9)  About 90% of CFC's are emitted by industrialized countries in the parts of Northern Hemisphere, which included United States and Europe.

10) Without the protective layer of ozone of stratosphere, UV radiation will cause numerous health problems like skin cancers and immune suppression in humans.

Facts About Antarctica Melting Ice

1)   In Antarctica, if all the ice are melted, then the sea levels of the world would rise about sixty one  meters which is 200 feet.

2)   The main ice in Antarctica covered landmass of 90% of the world at the South Pole and 70% of its fresh water.

3)   The specific region has been continuously warming over past 30 years. Antarctic Peninsula, in particular, one of the fastest warming place on our planet.

4)   As per U.S.Environmental Protection Agency(EPA), the sea level increased from 6 to 8 inches, which is 15 to 20 cm in the past 100 years, due to the melting of Antarctica ice.

5)   The West Antarctic Ice Sheet, is about the size of Greenland, which contains 10 % of all the ice in Antarctica.

6)   The research for 40 years of satellite images of West Antarctic ice, which have been noticed that there is a rapid ice loss for the past few decades.

7)   The positive information which we have is that the average temperature around Antarctica is -37°C, hence there is no danger of melting ice.

8)   Data collected from space by NASA's Grace satellite shows that the Antarctica is losing more than a 100 cubic km (24 cubic miles) of ice each year from 2002.

9)   We have a question that how that's possible for surface melting to decrease, but for the continent to lose mass anymore? The answer for this is the fact that the ice could flow without melting.

10) In the year 1995, the Inter governmental Panel on Climate Change declared a report that the sea level is increasing by 20 inches. 20 inches is not a smallest amount, it could have a big impact on coastal cities during storms.

Facts About Nibiru(Planet-X)

1)  It is Hypothesized as the 10th planet in our solar system is reported to be one and a half times the size of Pluto and 4 times the size of Jupiter, and we are just a tiny peanut compared to Nibiru.

2)  This threatening planet on a 3600-year orbit was discovered by the ancient Mesopotamians, who named it Nibiru. Planet X is being pulled into inner solar system due to gravitation pull of outer planets.

3)  It was known also to the Mayans, who associated it with the end of their calendar "long count" in December 2012.

4)  NASA is tracking Nibiru, but that this information is being kept from the public as part of a worldwide conspiracy.

5)  Regarding Nibiru, on December 31,1983 when NASA (Western science) reported discovering this planet, much was finally confirmed for astronomers–the hypothesized cause for Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto’s irregularities of orbit was now confirmed fact.

6)  Just one year later, the newly launched IRAS (Infrared Astronomical Satellite) spotted a large mysterious object in the depths of space.

7)  Nibiru is visible every 2000 (2,160) years during its orbital pass. ( Sumerian and Mayan text both state that Nibiru is clearly visible by day as well as night )

8)  A large scale hypothetical planet that's part of our solar system with an orbit beyond that of Neptune. Was first hypothesized in 1841 when astronomers noticed Uranus did not move as predicted in it's orbit. Based on these residuals, the search for Planet X began.

9)  Nibiru is a magnetic star only of giant means and can only be seen by infared. The sun itself will protect us only for a short period of time because we will have the Sun in front of it.
10) During this time period the Earth can do a flip and go upside down or be tilted 278 degrees off of its current axis.  Our Sun behind Nibiru will take about 70% of Nibirus power as it fights it.  So we will be exposed to approximately 30% of Nibirus magnetic effects.   If this happens the oceans and the waters has to go someplace.
