When Bill Clinton took office in 1993, global warming was a slow-moving environmental problem that was easy to ignore.

You must love statistics. Why the data include all kinds of measurements including those that satellites produce. We've been sharing even movies in this forum.

There have been many threads on this topic that I posted about. However, the North pole isn't seeing any sun right now. Catch some daily reports from litesong in various threads. He even covered the weather at the Baniff Island, Teddy's place.:-)

It's just nonsense that there's money in supporting AGW/CC theory.
You're claiming no one is pulling down huge taxpayer-subsidized profits off selling these?

Hasn't been seeing any sun? The earth always goes round, it would have seen just as much sun! We want real stats, not science fiction stats from your novels!

It's winter in the Northern hemisphere. Why is that?

I think you are confused about statistics. It's a necessary tool to study real measurement data.

Novels don't deal with statistics, do they? You get hot under the collar when it's time to learn something new. I'm not responsible for your ignorance, you are.

You could be at least friendly.

People do get educated and trained and experienced. You had difficulty understanding what I was saying. read it again and again when that happens.

You mentioned the experts. Some experts, I mean scientists, are doing research about reversing the harm done by man-made global warming. In your life, do you keep eating the candy that makes you very sick?

Or do you take chemicals so you keep on eating the candy that makes you ill? Then what happens? Many problems happen including side effects and new diseases.

We must face the cause and deal with it. The cause of global warming is fossil fuel burning and its emissions into our air that we breath.

Think about it. Perhaps you worry about yourself only. If you are very rich, how did you become it? Was it by polluting the air that you breath?

Its the same reason its summer here for its the same reason its winter in the northern hemisphere! Its simply the seasons! Ice skating in summer?

It doesn't necessarily come from fossil fuels does it? And we can still make the earth cooler! The sun gets cooler too!

At least we've managed D-T reaction in certain machines but not reactions with He-3. I frankly think you are way off in your optimism dealing with alpha particles and protons for power production. You could read more carefully your link, especially study the comparison table.
There are fundamental problems like power density that Teddy hinted.
I'm aware of those problems. I only quoted the most optimistic about the 70% efficiency number, & lots of other people think that's wildly over-optimistic.

That's why I repeated the old joke about fusion power ALWAYS being 30 year away. Still, the Indians & Chinese have both made He-3 a focus of their lunar research. That tells you something, doesn't it?

It's the rarity of He-3 on the earth that has contributed to the lack of fusion research with it. It's much, much more common on the moon. Still, even those areas have only ~15-40 PPB He-3, so a LOT of mining & extraction would have to be done in situ before transport back to earth.

Dont people know history repeats itself?? Northern Africa was a beautiful lush paradise 15,000 years ago. As things progressed and the hunters and gatherers moved into that area and the permanent capfires dotted the land for literally more than a million sqr miles , enviromental warming changed a paradise to a sand hell. WAKE UP PEOPLE!! It happened before and will happen world wide this time! History repeats itself!!

During September, the Arctic Ice Pack has been losing 670 cubic kilometers of ice per year, at a strongly accelerating rate. As of the beginning of January 2013, Arctic Ice Pack is 11% less than it was last January 2012.

'large lying language' is a slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting (& rotting) racist pukey proud pig & alleged & proud threatener.

As Snohomish Native Tribe member, the euros & transplanted euros invaded purposefully & stole & transported slaves in other ships(those that didn't die from starvation & lack of care on the way over). Kill all the euro & transplanted euro invaders(spelled correctly).

I got cool myself once with chemicals. A little acid, some mescaline, some Quaaludes; I was cool.

Educated me too. On what life was about, and our mortal coil....

Half of Arctic sea ice has vanished since measurements began in the late 1950s.

Agree....... if you're accounting by Arctic sea ice area loss. However, by accounting Arctic sea ice VOLUME loss at September low, a full 84% of Arctic sea ice VOLUME has disappeared....... & as you say, accelerating.
