Why not publish in a real scientific journal instead of the Weekly World News version of one.
As for the PhD researchers, the majority are no more knowledgable in the field of climate change than I am. While someone who works it the field of Astrophysics is obviously intelligent it dosn't make him any more knowledgable about climate change than the local weather babe reading a teleprompter. If anything the weather babe is more qualified because of what she does every day.
WOW that's bold trying to compare your----self with a PhD. You should stay with the comparison of the Less than a Box of Rocks status it is what you trully are.

Who could object to wind farms?

Oh, yes, a few selfish old men, lucky enough to have been able to grab a piece of the countryside, worried that a few wind turbines will spoil their view, but not concerned in the least about the damage burning fossil fuels will cause future generations, because of course, that doesn't affect their view of the countryside.

You are on the losing [or is that loser] team.

Leaked emails expose Obamas crony Green capitalism
snip:
A trove of over 150 emails released late Wednesday by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform reveals crony capitalism at the highest levels of government. The emails show that the loans given to failed companies like Solyndra, Abound Solar, A123, and other failed companies were pushed through for political reasons by Department of Energy (DOE) Secretary Chu, Vice President Biden, and even President Obama himself.

lol. Dang, they forgot to delete those emails again!

The 'green' economy is nothing but a myth,[you know, like those 'shovel ready jobs'] used to money launder and enrich friends & others in their failed & phoney schemes & ventures.

Yep - top climatologists have predicted 15 of the last 5 weather catastrophes.

If you are stupid enough to "compost" then you and the rest of nature are destroying the climate more than everybody's cars are. Also organic farming produces more greenhouse gases than industrialized farming. On the bright side, hydroponic weed is good for the enviroment.

Oh yeah?

Climate scientists Charles Greene and Bruce Monger of Cornell University, writing earlier this year in Oceanography, provided evidence that Arctic icemelts linked to global warming contribute to the very atmospheric pattern that sent the frigid burst down across Canada and the eastern U.S.

August 2007, I was trying to get from Hell's Kitchen to the Financial District after a torrential rain that caused tornadoes in Brooklyn and the subway was closed due to flooding.

Oh come on this is not the same. I posted earlier the Authority saying 108 years. Remember?

In August 2007, similar storms turned subway tracks into raging waterfalls, crippling the city's transportation system, the New York Times reported. Videos taken at the time show water gushing over platforms and on to tracks. In response, the MTA started laying blue tarps over subway grates in Queens, the New York Post reported.

In 1898, New York, Kings and Richmond Counties, and parts of Queens and Westchester Counties and their constituent cities, towns, villages and hamlets were consolidated into the City of Greater New York. During this era the expanded City of New York resolved that it wanted the core of future rapid transit to be underground subways, but realized that no private company was willing to put up the enormous capital required to build beneath the streets
The City decided to issue rapid transit bonds outside of its regular bonded debt limit and build the subways itself, and contracted with the IRT (which by that time ran the elevated lines in Manhattan) to equip and operate the subways, sharing the profits with the City and guaranteeing a fixed five-cent fare

Hurricane Sandy is proof of storms, not man made global climate change. We've always had hurricanes, get over it. Many people in New York don't have gas or electricity, we need an energy policy that encourages the production and use of energy and fuel.

They ran out of fuel because it was sold. Production had nothing to do with the stations running out of gas. An energy polices that will redirect a hurricane away from all those transmission lines. You bet good luck with that one. Hay stop reading the Less than a Box of Rocks AKA "tina's" junk it starting to reflect in your answers.
