That's what I said, when you tried to gain my educational level. When I refused, you immediately lied, flapping, I didn't even have a GED.
It is true tho, that I have more science & mathematics than you ever thought about obtaining.
i don't need to prove my academic credentials to a dumbass like you. if you're as smart as you portray....why don't you show it?? cause you aren't!

lol

you dream for a high school education, don't you?

Whereas, CO2 can raise the amount of bio-mass, CO2 doesn't add a comparable amount of nutrients to plants. Food is sold by the pound(bio-mass), not be its nutrient level.
i'd like for the caveman and litethong to show the forum that they possess the scientific knowledge they claim. please explain howhigher co2 levels lower nutitional levels in plants!!!!

we'll wait!!

no links....no excuses....no cut and paste!!!

explain with scientific expertise that what you claim is plausible!!

haa haa haa

i already know the responses......two dumbasses will react in a way that proves they are dumb azz trolls who haven't a clue about anything relating to science.

For sure, doubt is all that you embrace. Try embracing reality! You are attracted to doubt like a moth to a light.
Reality?

LOL

No one cares about global warming. Poll after poll show that, but you keep bleating as if facts are otherwise.

Warmists have a HUGE credibility problem.

NO ONE... not politicians, nor warmist scientists, nor celebrities, nor Topix experts ACT like it really is a crisis. They all play it lip service, then carry on with their lives as if no crisis exists.

Keep bleating... you're shooting down you own argument.

I gave up trying. Denial is just too deeply entrenched.
Our grandchildren will curse us for the devastated world and miserable living conditions in it that we hand down to them. Of course we will be safely dead by then. So will the billionaires who make more billions from the devastation. But their grandchildren will still more than likely be rich enough to afford the good life, even if everybody else is starving.
See my previous post... add in "Retired Farmer" to the list.

Well said, these people are blind to reality. Their whole life is dedicated to walking around with a blindfold & ear muffs so they don't see the bus coming when they are crossing the road nor they know when stepping over the edge of a cliff. Unfortunately these are the victims the rest of us have to pay for.
See my previous post.

No one takes any notice of a poll taken around the dining table of a baggers home. So you think the President should issue an executive order on warming to make it look more of a crisis, well yeah I'd agree with that.

Your reality is rather limited. You flutter around around your incandescent light bulb. If you don't change your ways you will get burned. Then it will be a crisis for you. It will be too late for you to care then!

That's right... just keep avoiding the giant credibility problem and keep preaching to the choir.

Warmists aren't increasing their flocks even as they get more strident.

What's beyond a "crisis"? "End of the world"? Nope... that one's failed already. Doomsday? Nah... not scary enough. Super-crisis? As if a couple more exclamation points will buy you some credibility.

Our greatest problem in America (And a large part of the rest of the world) is our economic system. Capitalism is totally a man made system. It has no counterpart in nature. It is not part of the natural world and is not influenced by the balances of nature. Does capitalism consider the pollution of our streams, the degradation of the air, poisoning of the ecosystem through synthetic chemicals, etc.? No, it considers only the generation of wealth for the most affluent. That is all. It will not solve all problems. Why do so many believe that it will?
We are beginning to see that it creates many problems.

Does this mean that other economic systems are better? Not necessarily, but it does mean that we must be cognizant of these shortcomings and regulate them through intelligent governance. To do that we must break the bonds of crony capitalism that is structuring our society. We must quit buying into the prejudices of the controlled media and think again for ourselves. We must insist upon rules that favor the natural processes of the world. When we think that we are above nature and do not depend upon the natural processes, we soon will falter because we are part of the natural processes and must live within.

An example of controlled thinking; The idea of trickle down capitalism (not even an accepted viable economic theory) is still alive today. It is considered proper to subsidize large corporations and banks but improper to require that workers are paid a decent wage. Along with that, it is considered sacrilege for governments to regulate the market. What we end up with is a situation where man has total disregard of natural processes and a economic system that must denigrate reason for the riches of the few.

That is why the science of global warming is being attacked so venomously.

In 1971 Jimís [Hansen's] GISS coworkers Steve Schneider and S. Ichtiaque Rasool used the new methods to make a controversial and long-remembered prediction of global cooling. Theyíd wrongly assumed that man-made aerosol pollution would spread across the world, reflecting the Sunís warmth back into space, while their oversimplified model underestimated CO2ís greenhouse effect.
http://simpleclimate.wordpress.com/2014/05/10...
The cooling Earth concept was soon corrected by further scientific investigation and the effects of CO2 were found to have a more profound effect upon the atmosphere than the shielding effect of aerosols. Both are affecting the temperature of the earth today. Both are influenced by man's activities.
