I looked at your agu site
“The recent release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) Assessment 5, Working Group II report has been viewed by many as a wakeup call. Not only is our climate changing, but the impacts of that change are already occurring and increasing faster than previously thought. This poses a real, direct and immediate threat to human health, the performance and sustainability of our agriculture systems, the availability and reliability of natural resources—including water supplies—the health of ecosystems on land and in the oceans, and the economic stability of nations around the world.

Maybe this what you wanted me to see at AGU

That doesn’t mean that it’s too late to address the impacts of climate change, but it does mean that the window for meaningful action is closing. Lessening the negative outcomes will require rapid societal responses that are informed by science and that reflect the perspectives and commitment of all stakeholders, including international, national, regional, and local governments, the business community, industry, scientific researchers, and many others.

The bottom line is this: Climate change is real – the science is clear and the scientific community is in agreement. Its impacts are being felt today in communities and countries around the world ... and those effects touch Fortune 500 companies and families alike. There is much that can be done to mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change, but without immediate action, they will only continue to worsen. And, while some solutions will require us to make difficult decisions, many of them have the potential to open up innovative new avenues for economic growth and development.

The IPCC report clearly demonstrates that we cannot continue to hit the snooze button when it comes to addressing climate change. From taking steps to reduce the magnitude of climate change, such as substantially cutting emissions, to providing vulnerable communities with the resources they need to adapt and ensuring that policy decisions are informed by credible and up-to-date science, the time for action is now.”

they say a .0375% trace gas is causing climate change. of that amount a smaller fraction is man made.

NC governor proposes new coal ash plan after spill
By MICHAEL BIESECKER and GARY D. ROBERTSON, Associated Press THE ASSOCIATED PRESS STATEMENT OF NEWS VALUES AND PRINCIPLES

RALEIGH, N.C.(AP)— North Carolina's governor says he will propose new legislation aimed at strengthening government oversight of coal ash dumps following the massive spill at a Duke Energy plant that coated 70 miles of the Dan River in toxic sludge.

Gov. Pat McCrory said Wednesday his plan would result in the "conversion or closure" of the dumps and close legal loopholes that allowed Duke to avoid cleaning up groundwater contamination leaching from its 33 unlined ash pits clustered at 14 coal-fired power plants across the state.

McCrory declined to discuss details about his plan at an event in Raleigh on Wednesday, including whether it would require Duke to clean out its ash pits. He said state environment Secretary John Skvarla would address questions about the details of the plan at a later time.

McCrory called the plan "innovative" and "aggressive" and would address an issue unresolved for decades.

"I'm proud to be the administration that has a plan that we've put forward," McCrory said. "I'm going to let the statement that I released speak for itself and I'm going to let John Skvarla later on — I think today or tomorrow — he'll be giving more details because it's a very detailed plan and a very detailed process."

McCrory also said he will propose adding 19 employees at the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources to ensure dam inspections statewide are done on a more routine basis.

Environmentalists are pushing the state to use what they say is its existing legal authority to require Duke to haul more than 100 million tons of the toxic ash away from waterways to lined landfills licensed to handle hazardous waste.

In a letter to the state last month, Duke CEO Lynn Good said the company would remove the ash from its leaky pits at the Dan River plant and another plant while the company studies options at its remaining sites. Among those options is draining contaminated water from the pits and then covering the remaining ash with soil and giant tarps.

Peter Harrison, a lawyer with the environmental group WaterKeeper Alliance, said the statement McCrory issued Wednesday appears to adopt Duke's position.

"The governor has left plenty of room for Duke to do nothing more than empty the water out of its ash ponds and cover them with dirt," Harrison said. "This approach is unacceptable because it would allow these toxic dumps to continue leaking and poisoning our rivers and groundwater supplies with toxic heavy metals for many years to come."

Who says? Back up your figures!
I never claimed to be a climatologist. And I can certainly can tell your one brain cell doesn't qualify you either. And I don't drive anything that doesn't meet federal/state EPA regulations. So that alone makes you look like a complete fool with little knowledge of how a modern combustible engine works.
So now you got nothing again, azzhole.
And if we had to wait for topix scientists like yo to approve things we'd still be inventing the wheel.
