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 you, simpleton, it's easy.

CO2 does not make the plant lose nutrition so much as the growth that CO2 inspires causes the proportion of nutrients to go down. Bigger is not always better.

Of course you, with your black and white dogma, think that it is.

More important how do you live with your denial ? Ignoring facts and making wild claims that are groundless scientific arguments just so you can feel comfortable in your denial.
I'd say that is the height of hypocrisy in itself. No one is trying to sell snake oil here, just trying to right an obvious wrong. Yet your lot want to claim daily that this proven wrong needs to keep going on unabated. Like caveman says, you are traitors to your fellow man & your country.

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?....
Global warming isn't a problem with climate, it's a political issue. See Pat's post above for proof.

Aww gee... another hypocrite warmist.

But please demonstrate some intellectual honestly and quit calling global warming any sort of crisis.

I know... I know.... you won't adhere to any of the mountainous "science" you keep posting about a crisis. You'll keep posting making yourself a bigger and bigger hypocrite.

No matter to me... I'll enjoy mocking you and the other phony warmists.

Wal-Mart Now Draws More Solar Power Than 38 U.S. States
By Tom Randall Oct 25, 2013 5:25 AM ET Solar power and keg stands have one thing in common: Wal-Mart wants to profit from them.

In the race for commercial solar power, Wal-Mart is killing it. The company now has almost twice as much capacity as second-place Costco. A better comparison: Wal-Mart is converting more sun into energy than 38 U.S. states.

In the beer department, Wal-Mart recently decided alcohol was good business and vowed to double sales by 2016. The result: 500 reps from the alcohol industry converged on the Sam’s Club auditorium in Bentonville, Arkansas, for an “adult beverages summit” focused on Wal-Mart.“It’s even selling it in garden centers,” Bloomberg News’s Renee Dudley wrote in August.

With solar, will Wal-Mart have the same industry-focusing presence its had with booze? If small business is the heart of the U.S. economy, Wal-Mart is the gluteus maximus -- the power muscle. The company redefines global supply chains and crunches cost reductions in just about every area it touches. More than 80 publicly traded companies rely on Wal-Mart for 10 percent or more of their annual revenue, according to Bloomberg data.

“When we find something that works -- like solar -- we go big with it,” the company’s website proclaims.



When companies tout their solar street cred, it's generally not because they're actually plugging panels in themselves. Most of Wal-Mart's projects are done through what are called power-purchase agreements, where third-party developers install, own and operate the systems on Wal-Mart rooftops. Wal-Mart simply locks in cheap long-term rates to buy back the electricity and take the green credit.

After a 40 percent surge in installations through the second quarter, Wal-Mart now draws on 89 megawatts of capacity, according to a report last week by the Solar Energy Industries Association. That’s roughly enough to power 22,250 U.S. homes.

Even Wal-Mart has a lot more room to grow. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, green power accounts for just 4 percent of the company’s electricity use. IKEA, the world’s biggest home-furnishings retailer, is taking solar a step further. The Swedish company plans to begin selling solar-panel systems in its U.K. stores next year, with a standard 3.36-kilowatt system costing $9,200.

For companies that took a look at solar a few years ago and passed, it may be time to look again. Prices of panels have fallen 60 percent just since 2011, and the average price of an installed solar project has dropped 30 percent, according to industry data.

It’s still early days for solar. Wal-Mart produces more solar energy today than the entire country did in 1987, when Starship released the hit single,“Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now.” I’m not sure what exactly that says about Wal-Mart or the U.S. or 1980s pop music -- apart from showing that the landscape today is positively futuristic by comparison.

Buying solar and selling beer are two very different businesses. But when giants like Wal-Mart and Costco throw their weight into either, you can bet on a cheap buzz. I’ll drink to that.

So, denier boy Roy Spencer takes some arguments away from the most idiotic and ignorant deniers. You listening, Gord?

You guys might want to check out some arguments you shouldn't use anymore, according to the official climatologist for Rush Limbaugh.

You still reading those graphs standing on your head, no wonder you have a distorted view on science.
