The Weather (continued)

What is it about the upper air, as a result of diminishing area, being forced down into the slower moving returning air that creates the weather?
We were introduced to the concept of ice flecs in the last chapter on field replacement. Because water disappears when it is boiled and when it is placed in a pan under the sun, science’s monkey say process of analogizing concludes the same process is at work in both cases. If water is in the atmosphere, it evaporated just like boiling water evaporates. There’s nothing unique about rain, it just came from a bigger pot of water. When we see a storm brewing, we look for a body of water that could have produced the storm, and that’s it. We get this pablum from a science that can’t even tell us how heat is transferred in the atmosphere. We hear endless references to hot air rising above colder air, but other than assuming the hot air must have been heated by the sun, we are stuck in place, with weather being a confluence of local conditions. In fact, following the mistaken conclusion that the Earth absorbs the sun’s rays during the day and radiates them at night, meteorologists have concluded that the earth is heated by the sun and that’s the source of all weather. Because this explains no weather, science has added conduction, the contact of the air with the heated earth and subsequent contact with other areas, giving the air more movement, and convection, the catch-all that finds currents of air moving from one place to another, with only the existence of these convection currents attesting to their movement (which is to say, we found heat flowing from here to there, so it must be doing so as a result of a convection current).
None of this provides a cohesive explanation of how, or even why, heat moves in the atmosphere, just ad hoc explanations for local heat movement. But then, science is nothing but a bunch of ad hoc explanations for reality that have one thing in common, mass/gravity. If we start off examining exactly what might be happening, and the context in which it is happening, we can get a clearer picture of just what is going on. The context is the circulating air masses that move up and down the planet and happening part is exactly what happens when water is left out in the sun.
If we pick a point on the circulating air masses, we would have to choose the equator if for the only reason that we are examining what is causing the water to disappear. The equator is filled with sunlight under which vast amounts of water can disappear. The question is, what’s the process that the water undergoes to disappear? It certainly isn’t evaporating like boiling water disappears. It’s ludicrous to think that the equatorial waters are boiling. What evidence is that that the water is disappearing at all? Science can’t claim that a pan of water left out in the sunlight to disappear behaves differently than the water sitting under the sunlight at the equator. If one disappears, the other must also disappear. It’s not turning into steam, so where is it going?
The answer lies at the molecular level. If the water is disappearing, then it must be in a form other than water. In a world where chemistry can alter the molecular structure of just about everything with the simple application of energy, this shouldn’t seem the least bit beyond our powers of reason. But for a science that has mindlessly viewed the disappearance of water as the same as boiling water, it’s novel. And for a science that doesn’t keep up with technology, it’s an impossibility. For instance, what technology separates two elements, one of them oxygen, using energy in the form of electricity. One of the most common elements in our existence, aluminum. Aluminum molecules come with two atoms of the element combined with three atoms of oxygen. Passing electricity through the molecule separates the molecular binding of the two and the heavier aluminum atoms sink to the bottom.
Instead of electricity, the energy of sunlight is striking the water molecule, breaking its molecular bond. The oxygen atom is heavier than the hydrogen atom, but both are lighter than the atmosphere, so they rise. (The atmosphere is composed of diatomic nitrogen and oxygen atoms, atoms held in pairs, and therefore is composed of atom pairs with twice the atomic weight of the individual chemical elements. While the released hydrogen atom remains in diatomic form, it’s still much lighter than the atmosphere. The oxygen atom is not diatomic, so it is also lighter than the atmosphere, which is composed of diatomic atoms. With unequal weight pf the hydrogen and oxygen atoms, they rise at different rates and are unable to recombine into water, which they might do if they were in a confined space.
