California prepares for harsh realities of changing climate

Jul 31, 2012 Full story: Contra Costa Times 30

A series of state-sponsored scientific studies released Tuesday warns that California can expect more scorching heatwaves, severe and damaging wildfires, emergency room visits and political conflicts over decreasing water supplies as the Earth continues to warm and sea levels rise along the state's 840-mile long coast.

No matter how solid the science nor how great the risks, we can be sure that nearly all science deniers reading this cannot see the word "California" without dismissing it as "Gay Socialist Hippie Pelosi Country".

Where's the sand in the pic of Fat Al's house?
"On the beach" means on it, not near to it.

Did I post any pictures of fat gores house????
NOPE

So why can't you show any facts to back up your claim that solar panels can't pay for them self in less than 5 years?????

Make your mind up, LOLROIKWH, a few posts back it was 4 years.

How close is Fat Al's house to the beach?

Is KWH the correct way to write kWh?

It's good to see you've dropped the continuous LOL.

I have not seen the house..........LOL
But it was reported to be beach front....Steps to the sand.......The property was said to be on the sand.....

Yes 4 years is what many systems can ROI in but if you go back and look to be conservative I bumped it up to 5 years.......LOL........And you can't post anything that shows my math was wrong........LOL

is lol or LOL the correct way???
As I told you before it was capitalized to make a point but I guess you are not SMART enough to understand that..........LOL

So please tell me that SMART is incorrect also..........LOL

LOLROIKWH argued that KWH was the correct way to write kWh, but now he's pretending he did it for effect.

"The property was said to be on the sand."
Priceless comment.
Houses aren't built "on sand."

Buy an HVAC company anywhere in the continental interiors and you'll have plenty of customers.

Post # 532 months ago on rising cost of solar I told you that I was capitalizing it

I actually capitalized a whole sentence for you and asked you if that was wrong also.......

Too bad you are too stupid to read it....

It has "An ocean view," but is not "on the beach."
Here's a google map of Montecito, place a mark at the spot where you think Fat Al's house is on the beach and post it back?
https://maps.google.com/maps...

NB: The coast at Montecito is only 4.29 km long, with less than 3.2 km of construction, so his house "on the beach" should be easy to spot.

How would I know where the house is??

All I said was what was reported..........ROTFLMAO

Nice duck and dodge I see........
Is it because I proved you a liar yesterday with your own post showing you did indeed say that solar would not ROI in ten years??

Or was it your post where you said solar would never ROI as that meant it had to return your money..........LOL

Thanks again my little sheepole..........LOL
