Lightbulb For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction

Thousands of jet aircraft engines on at any one time in the US translates to many thousands of hot air generators constantly pumping out hot air in and over our cities. Can all these heat pumps add to a slight increases in overall temperatures? It makes sense to me.

Volcanic ash could be a visual example of how the atmosphere can be influenced. The ash cloud does not dissipate quickly. It travels hundreds of miles as it slowly spreads out. Artificial heat from jet engines can work the same way.

Every high school grad knows that for every action there is an equal but opposite reaction. Picture all the mega-tons of force pushing against the earth to launch the space shuttles, rockets and to a lesser extent jet planes. They all generate thrust by pushing against the earth, what is the equal and opposite reaction? Very slight variations in the rotation and/or axises of the Earth. Since they are cumulative, add them up and you just might find that we are changing the way our planet rotates around itself and the sun. Result: Climate change and global warming.
