On this snowy March 25 morning I only ask one thing. Can we get some Global Warming up in here? I just got off the phone with TVA about turning up the CO2. Let's get some of that coal smoking.
And to all tree huggers. Don't be hypocrites. Go outside now and pull that satanic power meter off your houses.

Good one maybe you can get kyle to engineer that for you. It was able to engineer the Auto Ind. into bankruptcy.

[QUOTE who="dont....."].... ... like dueling with unarmed men.[/QUOTE]

Yeah, at least 8 toxic topix AGW deniers have no hi skule DEE-plooomaa or no upper class science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra or pre-calc for their poorly earned hi skule DEE-plooomaas.

However, one woman has a bit of college, which still means the men are mentally unarmed, unbrained & searching for their first science or mathematics class.

Of course, everything you say is wrong once again.

The LACK of AGW/CC mitigation is being tested right now. People like you recommend emitting carbon into the atmosphere without restraint. Your selfishness is making us all part of the experiment, however.

A revenue-neutral carbon tax removes ZERO money from the economy & adds ZERO to the cost of overnment. It's a pigouvian tax that takes from high carbon emitters & gives to low carbon emitters.

Consider a rising, stiff tax at the sale or production of fossil fuels. This might not be the best way to disburse it, but it'd certainly be possible to distribute ALL of it equally to every legal US resident, with half shares to up to 2 children.

The governet already has tax collectors & computers to disburse money (by check or electronic deposit), so additional costs would be negligible. Most people actually receive more money that they pay out.

No need for subsidies for clean energy or need to pick out a successful Solyndra. Customers, & the market, would decide.

If you're a heavy carbon emitter, you pay thru the nose. If you're a light carbon emitter, you get free money.

The POINT is not that storms, floods, droughts & other extreme weather events have never happened in the past. The POINT is that they're becoming more & more common with AGW/CC. We've already seen increases, & they'll continue to worsen this century.

Actually, I don't want to be a part of YOUR climate change experiment. You're recommending we add carbon to the atmosphere without restraint.

The fact that we're already seeing changes predicted by theory is verification that the theory is correct. I don't want to be a part of the experiment you're forcing on me.

After all, humans are releasing CO2 ~20,000 times faster than natural processes release it. We are completely overwhelming natural processes. Hopefully that doesn't mean the ice sheets will break up 20,000 times faster.

We're also not doing an experiment to restrict Rock music, to see if that would effect global climate temperature. Experiments are pre-planned and controlled, that's why our fossil fuel use can't be called an experiment.

"An experiment is a orderly procedure carried out with the goal of verifying, falsifying, or establishing the validity of a hypothesis. Experiments provide insight into cause-and-effect by demonstrating what outcome occurs when a particular factor is manipulated. Experiments vary greatly in their goal and scale, but always rely on repeatable procedure and logical analysis of the results."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Experiment

Most global warming alarmists don't understand what experiments are and how they are used in science to verify theories; that's why they shouldn't decide science policy.

Taxes harm the people by depriving them of wealth; that's why they should only be used to fund vital government interests. A "revenue-neutral" tax doesn't fund anything, it just redistributes wealth. The poster quoted above seems to want socialism and climate is the excuse.

Storms, floods, drought and other extreme weather events have happened throughout the past. Global warming alarmists don't understand history or science.

HSL is in luck, I'm not a scientists conducting a climate experiment. There's never been an experiment on adding CO2 to the atmosphere and measuring its effect; that's the problem with climate change mitigation.

Coincidence isn't causality. Without an experimental test, we'll never be able to distinguish the difference between natural CO2 emissions and human emissions.

HSL doesn't know what an experiment is; that explains his fear. I recommend learning how the scientific method works then applying that knowledge to public policy.

Because you are not of science, you don't understand the climate science and you post to the world such nonsense.
You repeat what's not true as you have for many years.

The reality is not what you post to the world. You are not aware of the science.

Actually, you are describing your own fault. You misrepresent the reality of AGW.

Why do you have a problem with noting the lack of experimental tests for climate change mitigation? I'm no scientist but I can see there are no experimental tests that show climate change mitigation is possible or that it won't do more harm than good.

I'm able to make my arguments without discussing other poster's brain size. My arguments are based on the issue, not ad hominem fallacies.

You go ahead and believe whatever you like, make your case a convincingly as possible. I'll do the same and let others decide who to believe.

I don't see what that has to do with climate change mitigation. Is Bushwhacker proposing 'gravity mitigation'?

I've always believed gravity is one of the most dangerous forces in the universe. 20,000 Americans die from falls and slips each year.
http://hspsupplyinc.com/stats.htm

We adapt to gravity, learn to look where we're going and how to lift heavy loads with our legs instead of with our backs. We'll learn to adapt to climate change too. There is no antigravity magic or climate change mitigation.

LOL. There's an insurmountable gap between scientists and you.

You don't agree with scientists because their work does not encourage you to burn uncontrolled and limitless quantities of fossil fuel. The future of humanity is threatened by your position of uncontrolled and limitless use of fossil fuel.

You misrepresent people like me by using the word "believe." My science understanding is not something you could ever enjoy.

Who to listen to for science? The scientists. Definitely, not to you or what you believe.

"Global warming is the greatest thing ever! It's like 80 here in Michigan and it's still winter! Longer growing seasons, lower energy bills....It's a win-win."

So what does the 2013 COLD SPRING mean, global cooling?

Climate changes every year, Al Gore is worth more tha Mitt ROmney, thanks to fools.
