I see that you are ignorant of how the scientific process works. Sounds like you are a radical Republican being led by the nose to benefit the fat cats. The Earth is warming. CO2 is a GHG. Burning fossil fuels increases the CO2 in the atmosphere. Try to understand that. BTW, I am a life long Republican but cannot be part of the radicalism that the Party promotes today. They are just wrong.
China emits more CO2 than the USA; is that the Republicans too?

Releasing CO2 ad lib, as you exhale or burn fossil fuel, isn't an experiment.
That's just life, experiments are purposeful and controlled.
If you can't manage a field experiment at the scale of the planet, maybe start with a hemisphere or just a continent.
Ha ha ha, just start with a continental field experiment...

Global warming is not partisan. Republicans deny global warming more than others. What do Republicans or Democrats have to do with China???

You are rather weird......

warming science IS pseudoscience. science follows the scientific method. warming science hasn't done that.

good....because you aren't!

and you're credible, mullet?

[QUOTE who="lyin' brian"]communist china emits more CO2 than the USA; is that the re-pubic-lick uns, too?[/QUOTE]

You know it is. re-pubic-lick uns sent American jobs to communist china. re-pubic-lick uns sent American industry to communist china. re-pubic-lick uns sent American pollution to communist china.

We also know education never sent to "lyin' brian", a high school DEE-plooomaa, with science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra & pre-calc. We also know that "lyin' brian" sent errors of 1 million TIMES, 1000 TIMES, 3000 TIMES, 73 million TIMES, & 2.5+ trillion TIMES, proudly onto toxic topix AGW threads.

Global warming is a money pit. Its where all the lobbyists can come together and agree, a new emerging market. Of course motor oil, and other toxic chemicals shouldn't be thrown into the water. I think at this point in time though we should allow drilling oil and be energy independent. The oil will get drilled someday, that's a friggin fact. I think now is the time for that.

Therefore you must claim that neither continental drift nor Universe expansion are scientific issues.

"lyin' brian" made mathematics errors of 1 million TIMES, 1000 TIMES & 3000 TIMES. Then he stopped. Two years later, he made errors of 73 million TIMES, & 2.5+ trillion TIMES. He hasn't tried for a while, reflecting he never took science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra or pre-calc in its poorly earned hi skule DEE-plooomaa.

We have populist politicians advocating climate change mitigation, none advocating continental drift mitigation.

The Michelson–Morley experiment didn't indicate man made change; if it did we'd need further experiments to measure how much and if it caused more harm than good. No use basing science on false data; man is less significant than the Sun and Earth.
THE GREEN SCHEME BY REID

Unreported is that First Solar LLC a Tempe AZ based enterprise has a number of "contracts" to put wind or solar plants on Nevada and California federal land. So far they have received $3 billion from DOE, support from Harry Reid and surprise surprise.....the investors in First Solar are Al Gore, Goldman Sachs, Ted Turner, and Clinton Climate and Obama fund raising hacks and allies. Rory Reid (Senators son) is the attorney for the Chinese company ENN which initially targeted the BLM land south of Las Vegas near Bundy ranch for a $5,000,000,0000 solar plant. Luckily it was rejected. But that didn't stop them. BLM Director Kornze (a former policy advisor on Harry Reid's staff) put the Western Solar Project on fast forward...which means solar and wind projects will go on federal land somewhere, with federal $ support. In other words, taxpayers will underwrite these projects even if they fail....and the investors will walk away without a loss.

Several business publications have written about the tenuous financial condition of First Solar LLC which has sucked up federal money faster than the MSM cozies up to Obama.

The "green sector" coalition seems to be more interested in making money off federal contracts, building on federal lands and not concerned about desert tortoise, snail darter, delta fish, water deprived CA farmers or waste of taxpayer green money of loser "green" projects.

Here you acknowledge that science tells you not to throw nasties into the water supply because it can upset the environment or more important make the water toxic. But the same science that tells you the pollution from fossil fuels is also harmful to the environment is about money not about the environment at all. Do you even begin to realize how stupid you sound

One could argue that carbon credits are a "money pit" or an "emerging market," but to claim that warming ITSELF is those things is merely foolish.
Another question is why Righties, who worship capitalism and profit, oppose making money on carbon credits in the FIRST place?
Seems amazingly hypocritical.
because carbon credits are similar to a pyramid scheme. see bernie madoff, punk. or....enron. get the picture?
of course not.
