Full story: Newsday

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

No, what I said was the "More CO2 is Good!" crowd fails to account for the other effects of CO2 because it starts to get very complicated and they can't process that much information.

And THAT sounds like you!

Lol. Yes they do. Never mind about the scientific evidence. This is why STEM education is important for the youth.

Yes, but Mothra is not a youth. He is beyond STEM. He is apparently a large, moth-like, Japanese science fiction character.

"Mothra has been portrayed as using a number of special abilities. It has been shown to have the ability to spray silk, fly, metamorphose, generate hurricane-force wind, scatter poison and use various magical energy attacks." -Wiki

With all those powers, Mothra don't need no steenking education!

This is a laugh a minute from all the usual suspects, Fox news, Rush, Trump etc. All making claims Global warming is over because its a snow feast in the US. It's a pity these poor individuals were not blessed with having their left side of the brain working because that's the part of the brain that controls Language , Logic, Critical thinking, Numbers & Reasoning. None of which get any form of workout in any of their comments.

Only if you exclude the mid-eval warm period. Which is exactly what East Angia did. That is, shape the data to get the pre-determined hypoyhesis; not to get the facts. We must worship that hockey stick.

It's not global temperatures that affect the arctic, it's arctic temperatures, which have gone up more in the last 30 years than the global average.
Oh No! It cannot be that recently descovered volcanic seamount chain extending from the northern Canadian Teritories to Siberia. That whole chain has been erupting for four years.

Let's consider gas laws (true science.) CO2 and Methane (CH4) tend to settle at lowest levels. If a natural gas leak occurs, where does the methane accumulate? CO2 has a greater molecular weight than methane (Solomons Organic Chemistry Fith Edition); Text.
I do not feel like writing a graduate thesis right now. Do your own research and take some college-level geology classes.

Ozritz,
Defending a theory with a theory might be either right brain or left brain. So, depending on which theory you choose, well you can see where this is going, depending upon on which side of your brain actually controls your thinking process. Too bad you don't have a choice..

I think it was mid-evil; not real evil, but not good either.

Everything will be alright as long as the lizard people leave us alone.

I oppose taxing or restricting CO2 emissions; we should wait for the rich to mine diamonds from the sky to sequester carbon out of the biosphere.

Your "facts" are disputed regularly.
A massive amount of CO2 might make ALL plants flourish, at least for a while. ALL PLANTS, including but not limited to poison ivy, kudzu, dandelion, ragweed, and the weeds farmers constantly fight now.
A massive amount of CO2 that changes regional climate and daily weather can cause the rains to come too early or too late, too little or too much; can cause early freezes or long droughts; can cause any number of undesirable effects.
CO2 could create cloud cover that would cool the earth or warm the earth. Ever heard of Venus? Massive CO2 content in the atmosphere, ground temperatures north of 700*.
Volcanoes? That's geology, vulcanology, not climate. Yes, they put all sorts of things in the air, one of which is particulates.
Yes, deserts could get more rain. But they could get drier. More evaporation means more precipitation but there's no guarantee that wind patterns would distribute it much differently. But desert soils still couldn't grow much for 100 years or so.
It may be 5th grade science, but you have yet to integrate it all. You suffer from a common affliction among deniers, the black and white mindset, to wit:
all plants need the same amount of water, the same amount of sunlight, the same amount of cold weather.
No.
all clouds are alike, all clouds do the same thing.
No.
all volcanoes erupt the same way and emit the same gases.
No.
All rain is good.
No.
It's a very complex world. I don't understand it all.
BUT I'M WAAAYY AHEAD OF YOU!
Thanks for proving you are clueless and ignore physics.
Step aside and let the grown-ups talk now.
Oh, thanks for the laugh!!

"motheaten mothballs" learned to sleep in skule. "motheaten mothballs" hated its teachers(even if they had figures), so didn't get any science(figures), chemistry(figures), astronomy(figures), physics(figures), algebra(figures), or pre-calc(figures) in a poorly (or non-) earned hi skule DEE-plooomaa.
