I had a Tercel. I got 40mpg on the highway with good featherfooting. More than that, my Tercel was tough. Had a full head-on collision(were still touching after the accident) with a car 40% heavier than the Tercel. The Toyota saved our lives, even without airbags. The engine compartment was collapsed on the drivers side & the passenger compartment instrument panel was severely widely cracked & starting to intrude into the passenger compartment. But it held up, doing its job.
yeah. Unibody. Cutting edge shyte eh? All spot welded. B-)

Is this Toyota Tercel reunion day? I had a 1980 and ran it for about 24 years. Efficient, basic and tough.
very nice! High five!

The only answer to this problem is to take peoples money, and if they don't have any make them slaves. To save the planet. In the name of science we must kill you to reduce greenhouse gas.

Science explanation of measurements.

A measurement system can be accurate but not precise, precise but not accurate, neither, or both. For example, if an experiment contains a systematic error, then increasing the sample size generally increases precision but does not improve accuracy. The result would be a consistent yet inaccurate string of results from the flawed experiment. Eliminating the systematic error improves accuracy but does not change precision.

To explain the difference3 between precision and accuracy, consider shooting at a target. Precision is how tight the grouping is, accuracy is how close to the bullseye they are.

<quoted text>Crop rotation to mitigate soil nitrogen exhaustion has been taught and practiced since Roman times. There have been ample experimental tests on the utility of crop rotation.

<quoted text>Svante August Arrhenius proposed a theory of climate change from the greenhouse gas effect in 1896. To this day, that theory hasn't been experimentally tested in the atmosphere.
See the difference between the mature technologies of architecture, agriculture and the hoax of mitigating climate change?
Actually, the only part of your statements I disagree with is the use of the word 'hoax'. If man-made emissions contribute to global warming, it follows that a cessation of those emissions would not contribute to global warming. Stopping the use of fossil fuels while simultaneously reducing atmospheric CO2 and finding a means of making the Earth more reflective would mitigate climate change. That in itself refutes the term 'hoax', even if those activities are purely speculative fantasy.

However, is it practical or feasible for man to reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere? Is it even possible? I'm unaware of any quick and easy means of carbon capture and storage that could possibly make a dent in offsetting the amounts we produce, much less significantly reduce the amount of CO2 already present in the atmosphere, so I understand your point - I just disagree with your phrasing.

Accuracy would be on target not how close you are.

If you even had a clue you would know there is no such thing as accurate in shooting a weapon. The only thing in shooting accurate is when you’re flapping your lips. You’re right on target when it comes to useless babble tainted with hate. Did you get that check up from the neck up? My bad you could achieve an accurate shot in a vacuum much like your one brain cell.

The millions of dead, killed beyond the end of a fired gun would argue your point of idiocy, if they could. You are a being without a brain, as is 'steenking piddling diddling middling mudling mudslinger dirtling'. You degenerate to....... "phud fetid feces face" repeat treats.

So dumb Assumption of your---self was that shot accurate and if so do show your proof.
