re: NASA Launches Advanced Climate Satellite
Geosynchronous satellites represent a decentralized mass of earth. Altogether they form a new gravitational region which pulls away from the earth's atmosphere, and changes equilibria of settling elevations in solar laminae. The latter was claimed to stimulate increased solar flares and other solar activities which may impact earth in various ways. The ozone layer of the earth's atmosphere would have low adhesion and weak gravitational force to adhere in an already heat-swollen atmosphere. This distension raises it to the far edge of gravitational reach. A satellite could, in theory at least, pull it off. Nowadays, there are a lot of irons in the fire.
