Just wanted to report that weather in California today is beautiful. Not too hot. Not too cold.
Little dry but we can handle that. We are still growing and exporting food for well well beyond our state population. Some rain predicted for tonight and tomorrow.
Then perhaps you can explain how is it subsidized Orange farms in California get to dump 100's of tonnes of Oranges in Australia for example while the Australian farmer who does not get one cent of farming welfare other than disaster relief ploughs their own fruit trees into the ground unable to sell their product due to the multinational supermarket chain who stitched up a deal for cheap imports.
Europe does the same, and how does this help global warming when this stuff has to be transported halfway across the world when it could be easily grown locally. If you want to know how globalisation and capitalism unchecked contributes to the bigger climate change picture this is just one example of thousands. Food is a good start when you wander around the supermarket shelves and check just how much is local.

Yeah, I do blame EPA. Direct subsidies for ethanol were ended in 2012. Indirect subsidies for ethanol blending equipment have just ended. As many have already said, & I reinforce, showing the very inefficient power production of ethanol in low compression ratio(9:1 to 12:1) gasoline engines(10% ethanol blends decrease mpg by 8% to 5%), MORE oil is consumed by the "ethanol in gasoline" industry, than the industry can save. With the passage of the Feinstein/Coburn bi-partisan bill to stop ethanol blending in our nation's gasoline stocks, a 10-15 times increase in 100% gasoline AND the decrease of the "ethanol in gasoline" industry, efficient 100% gasoline production will once more power our gasoline engines. The ability of gasoline engines to immediately increase efficiency AND come nearer to EPA estimates of gasoline engine, will show the hoax of "ethanol in gasoline".
All America will see the greater value of 100% gasoline compared to 10% ethanol. But with the 10-15 times(more?) greater availability of 100% gasoline, the open market will NOT have an extra $1 per gallon stuffed on 100% gasoline vs. 10% ethanol blends.
Let gasoline engines burn 100% gasoline efficiently.
Let ethanol engines burn 100% ethanol efficiently.
RIN's aren't a government subsidy....they are an EPA mandate that obligates petroleum producers to meet requirements under EPA guidelines, you moron.
Obligated parties,(that would be producers of petroleum products) must either blend boidiesel to diesel fuel or ethanol to gasoline in order to meet the RVO obligations that the EPA set forth!!
The entire premise of the EPA-RFS was to force fossil fuel producers to make fuels with a lower amount of GHG emission!! LOL
California even pays for those emission reductions twice with the CLCFS!!
Your chickens are already coming home to roost......yet you keep bitching about what you stand for, son!!!

Global Warming is simply a scam. It is amazing - all the climatologists who would have no career if there wasn't global warming think global warming is a huge problem. My how shocking. All they need is a few parrots to do the old cut and paste and the tax money rolls in. Amazingly well executed but a still a scam. It is getting harder to discount all the falsified research that keeps getting in the way of a marvelous fairy tale. How amusing was it that the global warming "scientists" returning from a grant funded "research expedition" had to be rescued after their ship got stuck in the ice. Man that global warming is really moving fast. Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large numbers - rattle on parrots - rattle on.

The Earth is warming. CO2 is a greenhouse gas. Burning fossil fuels increases the CO2 in the atmosphere. That is scientific. Dispute those findings if you can!
yes science is certain. Its called fact because its proven enough not to be called theory. The problem is today we try to present theory as indisputable fact to be with out enough knowledge of climate/environmental history to be "certain".. When you say silly things like the ice caps are going to melt and flood the earth, you might wanna be "certain" of a few more things than what you list above.

Speaking of parrots, as I said the other day. Why single out climate scientists, cancer scientists are scamming millions in their research, lets stop that as well. Why not stop every science project research especially the ones studying the universe. Their findings might clash with what the bible says. To an ignorant denier like yourself, then it must make you choke as each week dissolves another bs theory from the deniers.

I see that you do not understand science either. A theory is as good as science ever gets. Facts are what we observe. Theories are what science formulates from facts to explain how things work.

This may help.
