Poisons and pollutants are 'dose dependent'.
Talk to b_gone!

There are other things that are dose dependent, too. LOL.

Never mind. You have such a failed grasp of vocabulary that only remedial study can correct your posts.

<quoted text>No, oxygen isn't a poison.

<quoted text>In the context of biology, poisons are substances that cause disturbances to organisms,[1] usually by chemical reaction or other activity on the molecular scale, when a sufficient quantity is absorbed by an organism. The fields of medicine (particularly veterinary) and zoology often distinguish a poison from a toxin, and from a venom. Toxins are poisons produced by some biological function in nature, and venoms are usually defined as toxins that are injected by a bite or sting to cause their effect, while other poisons are generally defined as substances absorbed through epithelial linings such as the skin or gut.

<quoted text>Self disclosure?
Wrong again, Sherlock.

The mechanism of water intoxication is associated with osmotic pressure in cells. At decreasing amounts of salt in the blood, cells adjust by taking up more and more water. Consequently, the cells will swell. If this leads to transport of high amounts of water to the brain it may be extremely harmful. Swollen cells press the nerves, causing someone to experience headache. When cells seal blood vessels, this may cause a lack of oxygen, and someone loses consciousness. The direct cause of death by water intoxication is often brain oedema.

Oxygen toxicity is a condition resulting from the harmful effects of breathing molecular oxygen (O
2) at elevated partial pressures. It is also known as oxygen toxicity syndrome, oxygen intoxication, and oxygen poisoning. Historically, the central nervous system condition was called the Paul Bert effect, and the pulmonary condition the Lorrain Smith effect, after the researchers who pioneered its discovery and description in the late 19th century. Severe cases can result in cell damage and death, with effects most often seen in the central nervous system, lungs and eyes. Oxygen toxicity is a concern for underwater divers, those on high concentrations of supplemental oxygen (particularly premature babies), and those undergoing hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

New Zealand snow storm.
September 4, 2013:
HUNDREDS of skiers are stuck on New Zealand's Mt Hutt after freak weather forced its closure.
A combination of drifting snow and poor visibility has been blamed. While ski area management were aware of an approaching front and poor forecast, the situation deteriorated quickly, Mt Hutt ski area manager James McKenzie said.
There are 316 people trapped on the mountain.
"We made a decision to close the mountain at 11.30 this morning and a number of people made it safely down the road," he said.
"However at midday a combination of new snow blowing around everywhere and wind gusts of up to 45km/h, especially around the Saddles, meant visibility along the upper section of the access road deteriorated to the extent we closed the road completely.

How does a late-winter snowstorm on a mile-high peak in the southern half of New Zealand prove that global warming isn't happening?

Only a denier would think so.

Apparently picking a post from a string of discussion (ie,'context') is beyond your critical thinking skills.

But of course, any challenge (perceived or real) to your religion is the work of a heretic and must be squashed.

How pitiful you are.

Actually, she tried to wedge it into the discussion as evidence. Pitiful as your remark. Even a third-grader knows that climate changes are of the first magnitude while weather changes can be of the second magnitude.

"Wedge" it in? It was supporting evidence.

Sheesh... and you wonder why I don't take you seriously?

And third graders "know" this? Is that what you learned last year?

Apparently there are some warmists who believe that if you don't buy into the "science" (or religion, for some) of global warming with all your body, heart, mind and soul, you're incapable of having any 'causes' in which to support.

What a load of crap.

I have style? Never thought I'd get a compliment from you, but thanks.

Truth? Fact? Reason?

Gee... all I'm doing is applying the same argument standards that warmists use. I 'reason' that if you can meet the same criteria you apply to skeptics, then it should bolster your argument. Shouldn't it?

You're just pissed because by these same standards your arguments fall short.

Tis a shame, t'aint it?

btw, I do take credit for introducing "pity" (and all forms of the word) into the conversation. They say 'imitation is a high form of flattery'. Thanks to all of you.

*I* never said you have style (other than misreading posts, I guess). What I said is that you want to WIN on 'style', whatever that means to you. You certainly don't try to win on data, reason or science. And your latest whine about losing when you should be winning seems to imply that YOU think you have 'style' or something to win on..
