No, I'm the guy who drew pictures of elk on a cave wall, and traced my hand in ochre.
I read recently that archaeologists have decided that the cave artists were mostly women. They did an analysis of the paint (which was evidently blown on through hollow reeds or cane) and found female DNA in it.

But I understand your message.

He could well be telling the truth. Oak Hill, WV is one of the poorest places in America, as coal mining counties always are. The poverty rate is around 18 percent and the median income is very low. In such places it is not uncommon for poor people to install a coal stove and then scavenge coal from alongside the roads where it falls off coal trucks. Whenever the state DOT catches an overloaded coal truck, they make the driver dump the excess coal beside the road. People scavenge it clean within a few hours. That happens all over Appalachia.

No, readily available supply, burns a long time, and cheaper than gas or electricity for my shop. This is the one I installed:

Scavenge coal along sides of the roads? That is the most asinine comment I have heard. I dare you to come here and show me one pound of coal along side the road around Oak Hill that has fallen from a coal truck. Oh, and our median income was almost 32K, not rich, but again, proves how people like you take lies and make them into facts.

Oh, and the DOT makes the driver of an overloaded truck dump the coal beside the road? Another lie, he will get fined, but again, you seem to enjoy making lies a fact. You warmist seem to do that a lot.

Do you mind answering my questions?

1. How do you obtain your coal?

2. What happens to your flue gases?

5. What happens to your ashes?

Thanks.

Do you recall if they specied the cave region? I read it also but it was not specific to an area.

I personally speculate the possibility applies to both genders.

Not at all.
1. I get my coal from the mine I retired from.
2. They go up the flue. The chimney has a catalytic combustor that burns off gasses, it works better when burning wood, but will help when burning coal which is the 90% of the time.
3. I put the ashes on my compost pile. People who have no experience with coal are surprised how little ash there is.

Your welcome.

You call this a fossil fuel subsidy and I call this a free trade subsidy. If you don't want pirates interrupting the free flow of oil trade, keep America strong.
Then don't complain about money going to climate research because in the end it's no different than money going to homeland security or the army for that matter. However none of your lot see it as keeping American's safe. Like the man says, the US faces a far greater threat by climate than they ever will by the likes of Al Queda.

If they budget for it then they believe it will happen, just because you want everyone to accept a catastrophic weather event every other year as normal, the rest of the sane world have a very different view.

As for Moth's naturally occurring weather, well cyanide is natural to, we just don't want too much of it around as we would all be dead.
Same as weather, we don't want to be generating too much of that either as it has the potential to pose the same threat.

Answer this:

Why did those scientist lie in the emails?

Why has the temperature stayed steady for 15 years?

Why are the arctic ice areas growing?

Shoudn't we be afraid of another ice age?

The price of carbon is too high to pay. Too high when you figure the illness and death caused by it, the damage to the environment, and the contribution to global warming.

The profit from carbon enriches America's enemies. Carbon makes the rich, richer, and the poor, poorer. The volatility of carbon means it's an undependable supply. All of America is dependent on carbon down to the smallest details of our lives, and that is stupid. Protecting the carbon supply requires American troops, equipment, and funds. Carbon is too expensive!

But we can cut our carbon use. Just do it!
