Could the Greenhouse Effect Cause More Damage John Harte is an ecologist from the University of California at Berkley He is trying to find out whether heat stimulates further trace-gas from solid or not He is going to conduct an experiment that will tell him if the greenhouse effect could start a cycle that would cause the effects to be worse than already predicted The experiment will begin December of 1996 and will run for no less than three years Harte has stretched a twelve foot high grid of cables above 300 square yards of land in a high mountain meadow in the middle of the Colorado Rockies The cables are supported by four steel towers one at each corner of the grid Hanging down from the cables are ten infrared heat lamps which are about three feet long each This is supposed to simulate what many see as the coming apocalypse global warming By 2050 if we decide to load trace gasses - mainly carbon dioxide - into the atmosphere at our current rate we can expect Earths temperature to increase by any- where from three to nine degrees The Vostok record confirms that says Harte The grid is divided into ten sections Each of the ten sections covers thirty square yards of the meadow The infarared lamps will heat every other section by 25 degrees The unheated sections in between allow researchers to compare the efects of the lamps with the regular state of the meadow One time a week Harte will take gas samples from buckets turned upside down for ten minutes at a time on both the heated and unheated strips through fitted nipples at the bottoms of the buckets by syringes then analyze them with a gas chromatograph Well be able to plot any changes in the meadow very precisely says Harte Some of these changes could alter the very make-up of the seasons With a 25 degree
