"An experiment is a orderly procedure carried out with the goal of verifying, falsifying, or establishing the validity of a hypothesis. "
Sorry, Charlie, only the best deniers can answer questions correctly (some of the time).

Recall Jane Goodall's account of a chimp experimenting with the best way to get plenty of those tasty termites by inserting and re-inserting a stick into the mound and licking off the bugs which clung to it when withdrawn.

If I felt like researching or if I had the time, I'd cite a few more instances of animals conducting experiments for your dumb ass, but that's one good example. You've probably forgotten (or maybe you never did it) the ways in which children experiment in life, in order to learn, and without a rules-master like you overseeing them.

Align your mind, dude - your argument is letting perfection be the enemy of the good. Irrational.
Surely you are not suggesting that these activities are even within an order of magnitude of approaching the carbon intensity of the fuel cycle activities associated with our present coal-based or natural gas-based electric power base load generation industry?
Not a wrong point, but it's a facile and fallacious rap when not applied equally to other "greeie" wind and solar technologies ON THE SAME SCALE. How many millions of wilderness acres are you willing to blight with turbines and solar panel arrays having in order to power a morden info-based society of 300 million? How many millions of tons of highly toxic metals are you comfortable seeing mined and released from manufacture of photovoltaic panels and batteries?
It would be better if we could do more mining & construction actvities with lower carbon energy. Hopefully it'll be possble in the future.

There are some green(ish) technologies that are already price-competitive with fossil fuels: geothermal, hydropower, wind. And that's without a carbon tax or carbon sequestraion, which will certainly be necessary in the future.

Considerable research is still being done on other forms of hydropower (current, wave, tide, etc). Photovoltaic power is still a ways off, but passive solar heating systems work quite well.

Actually, lots of birds die in collisions with skyscrapers & motor vehicles; it isn't just windmills that kill them. And I HOPE you're not putting much trust in the journalistic standards of the telegraph.co.uk. They often don't "rise" to the level of the National Enquirer.

Lastly, if we could ever mine the Helium-3 in the lunar mare & develop fusion that emitted few neutrons, we'd have barely conceivable amounts of energy available. The reactions without D2O run hotter, though.

Most of the sea ice that forms each fall and winter in the Arctic now melts each spring and summer, a recent change that is impacting global patterns of weather and trade as well as the U.S. military's strategic planning, experts told reporters during a briefing Tuesday.

"There are tremendous two-way and multiple interactions between the Arctic and the rest of the world," retired Rear Adm. David Titley said during the teleconference organized by Climate Nexus, a group trying to raise awareness about climate change.

Experts tied the melting ice in the Arctic to the recent spate of stormy winter weather in parts of the U.S. and Europe. They also noted that the prospect of ice-free summers in the Arctic as soon as 2030 is already impacting international trade and U.S. Navy plans to protect Arctic resources.

The briefing was held the day after the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) announced that the Arctic sea ice reached its maximum reach for the year on March 15, covering 5.84 million square miles. This is the sixth lowest maximum sea ice coverage in the 35-year satellite record.

"The last 10 years have been the lowest 10 years," said Walt Meier, a research scientist at the NSIDC. He added that while this year was low, "we actually have the largest growth of ice in our record from the minimum to the maximum" primarily because the ice was recovering from the record low in 2012.

In addition to the shrinking extent of sea ice, the remaining ice is thinning perhaps twice as fast as the observed ice extent, noted Wieslaw Maslowski, an oceanographer at the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School.

KANGERLUSSUAQ, Greenland — On the Arctic Circle, a chef is growing the kind of vegetables and herbs - potatoes, thyme, tomatoes, green peppers - more fitting for a suburban garden in a temperate zone than a land of Northern Lights, glaciers and musk oxen.

Some Inuit hunters are finding reindeer fatter than ever thanks to more grazing on this frozen tundra, and for some, there is no longer a need to trek hours to find wild herbs.

Welcome to climate change in Greenland, where locals say longer and warmer summers mean the country can grow the kind of crops unheard of years ago.

"Every year we try new things," said Ernst, who even managed to grow a handful of strawberries that he served to some surprised Scandinavian royals. "I first came here in 1999 and no-one would have dreamed of doing this. But now the summer days seem warmer, and longer."

Major commercial crop production is still in its infancy. But it is a sign of changes here that Greenland's government set up a commission this year to study how a changing climate may help farmers increase agricultural production and replace expensive imported foods.

<<<<<<< <<<<<<< <<<<<<< <<<<<<< <<

So, how come Greenland's government believes the hoax?

Maybe because it's not a hoax?

C'mon - you're just farting around with pie-in-the-sky toy technologies at the margins. Indulging in avoidance behavior. These are all perfectly valid "niche" technologies that will each always have their relatively small role to play in the overall energy supply scheme, sure.

But let's please stay focused on the much larger & immediate imperative of saving the planet from carbon heat-death.

All forms of non-hydro "renewable" generation, despite massive subsidies, currently produce less than 10% of the carbon-based generation we need to replace IMMEDIATELY to save the planet.

http://www.eia.gov/forecasts/steo/report/elec...

Even if the massively large-scale energy storage technologies required to replace carbon-fueled generation with unreliable/unpredictable wind & solar existed (which they do not, not even in concept), the land areas required for implementation on the required scale makes these options completely infeasible economically and politically. Which 48 MILLION acres of land do you think it's ever going to be ok to permanently ravage, blight & pave over with solar collector arrays?

If your truly serious about saving the planet from death by AGW NOW, you will consign these pipe-dreams of 'green' energy to the side-show status they warrant.

In general, I'm not disagreeing with most of what you say. Still, by far the easiest thing to do is to continue to make major efforts in energy efficiency. Conservation can still yield huge improvements.

Just because green technologies now remain problematic doesn't mean we shouldn't keep trying. I've read about underwater turbines in the East River that just need to be strengthened, but are capable of enormous power generation. If wave, current &/or tidal hydropower technologies could be perfected, there are tremendous amounts of energy available.

Solar (photovoltaic) power is reportedly on a "Moore's Law" type trajectory when it's rapidly getting cheaper & better. It may yet be an excellent option.

The other thing about nuclear is that we REALLY need modern types of reactors that do a much better job of limiting waste, but these also will take long lead-in times for research & construction. That doesn't mean we shouldn't do it.

The Chinese want to get to the Moon by 2020. They have stated openly that one of their reasons is He-3. If we can get to low-neutron-flux reactions, they'll be easier to contain. I wouldn't be so confident that it'll be hundreds of years before controlled fusion can be a reality.

Sure - and those efficiencies, driven as they already are by market forces, are already being exploited and realized to the max in all future worlds, whether AGW-afflicted or not.

The problem is, this is not a viable strategy for saving the planet - it's denial. We cannot "conserve" our way out of the need for a large-scale crash carbon-fueled generation replacement program.

Yep, of course - but you're still clutching at straws, diddling around with toys at the margins. These are 'local' special niche solutions that take small bites at best out of the problem, but that even in the most Pollyannish projections cannot even come close to replacing all carbon-fueled generation near-term. We don't have the time for "perfecting" all these blue-sky concepts. If you are truly committed to saving the planet from AGW heat death, you need to reach for the big iron, PROVEN means, and NOW.

But it clearly ISN'T NOW. TODAY. And it won't be in the short timeframe we have to ACT. It remains a niche solution, that can never replace more than a fraction of the 7.5 BILLION kWh per day currently being generated by carbon-fired plants for a power-hungry nation of 300 million.

Pinning hopes on solar and wind is fiddling while the planet burns.

Already readily available & ready for large-scale commercial application. We've been running fast-neuron breeder reactors that recycle spent fuel & generate little waste for over 50 years. This part is mature technology.

What's needed is a firm kick in the ass of the federal gov't & bureacracy to get with the program, declare a national emergency, and start acting like the planet really is melting down. Get these standard SMR reactors licensed so they can be financed & built.

Don't bet the ranch on it, amigo. You don't know the Chinese. They don't have anyone to steal the know-how from this time - they're on their own. Just like white men can't dance, the Chinese nation (under the dead hand of the CCP) can't innovate. Never. Gonna. Hoppen. Sorry.

Self-sustaining fusion? Sure - it'll happen eventually. In the lab. At very small scale, and GINORMOUS expense. Never as a commercially viable or competive source of power, however - fission reactors will always be FAR cheaper and more reliable. Let me know, to take just one example, when you figure out how they've EVER going to contain the radioactive tritium emissions from this imaginary commercial fusion reactor, when the stuff diffuses right through steel...

When it's hot outside, people crank up air conditioners that usually suck electricity from coal- and natural gas-fired power plants at the root of human-caused global warming. This seems like a recipe for disaster, but it's more sustainable than living in a cold climate and cranking up the heat, a new paper suggests.

"The traditional view that living in hot desert areas is not sustainable should be re-examined," Michael Sivak, a research professor at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, told NBC News. "Because my data suggest that from this point of view — mainly a climate control point of view — living in very cold areas is less sustainable than hot areas."

He compared the energy demands for indoor heating and cooling in Minneapolis, Minn., the coldest metropolitan area in the country, with those in Miami, Fla., the warmest big city. He found the demands are 3.5 times greater in Minnesota.

That last paragraph will happen in the next twenty years.Eight countries and a couple of corporations are presently planning on moon bases by 2025 to study just that. Best part is everything can be built on the moon. The is enough water on the moon to fill all of the Great Lakes.
