70 proof?

Maybe how thats how the sun was made.

A moon made from 80% vodka and it caught fire

A blob of ehtanol (C

_{2}H

_{5}OH with molar mass

*M* = 46 g/mol) with density

*ρ* = 800 kg/m

^{3} and 32 miles in diameter (16 mile radius equal to 2.6 x 10

^{4} m) has a volume 7.2 x 10

^{13} m

^{3} and a mass 5.7 x 10

^{16} kg. This corresponds to a quantity of substance 1.2 x 10

^{18} moles or 7.5 x 10

^{41} molecules of ethanol.

The reaction for the burning of ethanol is:

C_{2}H_{5}OH + 3 O_{2} = 2 CO_{2} + 3 H_{2}O

If we count the number of bonds being broken:

One C

_{2}H

_{5}OH has 1 C - C, 5 C - H, 1 C - O and 1 O - H bond and 1 O

_{2} has 1 O = O bond, in total 1*8*1 + 3*1*2 = 14 single bonds.

The number of bonds being created is:

One CO

_{2} has 2 C=0 bonds and one H

_{2}O has 2 O-H bonds, in total 2*2*2 + 3*2*1 = 14 single bonds.

The number of bonds is not changed. To zeroth order approximation, this reaction is not very exoergic. If one bond releases an energy of 1 eV on average, we would expect an energy release of at most 0.5 eV per 1 'burned' molecule of ethanol. This amounts to an energy of 3.7 x 10

^{41} eV = 6.0 x 10

^{22} J. The average power of Sun's radiation on the Earth's surface is about 1 kW/m

^{2} for a surface perpendicular to the Sun's rays. Because the Sun is approximately 3,100 mi = 5.0 x 10

^{6} m high, a sphere with this radius has a total area of 3.1 x 10

^{14} m

^{2}. This means that the total power radiated by the Sun is 3.1 x 10

^{17} W. The energy released due to the burning of ethanol would last for 1.9 x 10

^{5} s = 2.3 days.

Another matter is the amount of oxygen need for this reaction. The ratio of the number of molecules of ethanol to the number of molecules of oxygen, as we see is 1 : 3. This means we need 2.3 x 10

^{42} molecules of O

_{2} or 3.7 x 10

^{18} moles. The mass of this oxygen (molar mass is 2*16 = 32 g/mol) is 1.2 x 10

^{17} kg. We can compare this to the total mass of hydrogen present in the atmolayer. Namely, normal pressure is 100 kPa at surface level and the area of the Earth's surface (at least up to the Ice Wall) is 1.3 x 10

^{15} m

^{2}. The total weight of the atmolayer is then 1.0 x 10

^{5} Pa x 1.3 x 10

^{15} m

^{2} = 1.3 x 10

^{20} N. Using the acceleration of free fall

*g* = 9.8 m/s

^{2}, this corresponds to a mass of 1.3 x 10

^{19} kg. The percantege of oxygen in the atmolayer is 21%, corresponding to 2.7 x 10

^{18} kg. The mass of oxygen used for burning is 4.4% of the total quantity of oxygen in the atmolayer. This would cause a significant change in the percentage of oxygen and 'greenhouse gases' (CO

_{2} and H

_{2}O).

In conclusion, I find your statement highly unlikely.
