martinezjosei, "Now, the last time I heard some liberal talk about "ten years" it was 1988, Ted Danson. We had ten years to save the oceans; we were all going to pay the consequences, which would result in our death." We are 'paying the consequences as total world fisheries are on the brink of collapse and the Oceans grow more acidic--a boiling vast vat of acid bad enough for you? "A 2003 landmark study by a Canadian-German research team published in Nature concluded that 90 percent of the large fish in the oceans had disappeared over the last 50 years. Ransom Myers, a fisheries biologist at Canada’s Dalhousie University and lead scientist in this study, says:“From giant blue marlin to mighty bluefin tuna, from tropical groupers to Antarctic cod, industrial fishing has scoured the global ocean. There is no blue frontier left.” 5 "... "Overfishing is not the only threat to the world’s seafood supply. Some 90 percent of fish residing in the ocean rely on coastal wetlands, mangrove swamps, or rivers as spawning areas. Well over half of the mangrove forests in tropical and subtropical countries have been lost. The disappearance of coastal wetlands in industrial countries is even greater. In Italy, whose coastal wetlands are the nurseries for many Mediterranean fisheries, the loss is a whopping 95 percent. 69

Damage to coral reefs from higher ocean temperatures and ocean acidification caused by higher atmospheric carbon dioxide levels, as well as damage from pollution and sedimentation, are threatening these breeding grounds for fish in tropical and subtropical waters.

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/27/opinion/the... "But we should not regard the pipeline or the eventual scale of tar sands production as inevitable. Nor should President Obama, whose decision is expected later this year, or Secretary of State John Kerry, who will advise him. In his Earth Day statement, Mr. Kerry, discussing global warming, said that “the science is screaming at all of us and demands action.” Blocking the pipeline is one obvious response. " Please ,Mr. President , stay strong on doing the right thing and stop Keystone XL. Make it as difficult as possible for companies to exploit our increasingly scarce, more expensive ,and ultimately damaging fossil fuels and ease the transition to develop renewable energy alternatives .

First, you're lying (shocker) because he was referring to a point at which we will be unable to prevent future catastrophe, not the timing of the catastrophe itself. Second, unless Al recently received a PHD in climate science and published a peer reviewed paper, this is more dishonest and fallacious argument from denier scum.

Inre: your latest Argument from Al, ditto all of the above.

Green energy is like living in the shade of a solar panel, with a wind turbine spinning on your hat. If climate change mitigation wasn't a hoax, there'd be experimental examples of it, or any man made global climate change.

Apparently, you're now just posting meaningless bafflegab because you have to post something to get your paycheck.

I'll ask again - so that you can be seen to dishonestly dodge again - how do you square these two facts:

1) You oppose - rabidly - all attempts to mitigate climate change.

2) You're only argument, repeated like an autistic parrot, is that we need to mitigate climate change to show that it's feasible.

Make it good, you effin' retard.

Not even close, I support rabidly, any experiment to mitigate climate change, to see if the concept is feasible. You may mitigate climate to your heart's desire; please write up the results.

I don't consent to participate in Kyle's experiment. I hope he doesn't want 100% compliance, otherwise he's already failed.

We need an experimental test to show if it's even possible for an experimental extraction or addition of CO2 or any other greenhouse gas, will cause a climate change. We don't necessarily need to mitigate climate change, it would suffice to change global climate in any in any measurable and reproducible way. Like a test.

I don't use profanity, and I don't insult my political opponents; this is where we differ. I don't believe Kyle's climate change mitigation ideas are good, but I wouldn't announce my opinion of his intellectual capacity. I'm against conservation as public and government policy; I want a society that encourages the production and use of energy and goods such as fuel. Again, this is where we differ.

I like prosperity, that means energy, fuel and productivity. I get a paycheck for doing my job; I post here for fun.

Lying again. If you like your generator inside, even you would succumb to the carbon monoxide. That's that lovely carbon byproduct you cherish so much.

Hey, brainless, swallow this:


General Motors called on Barack Obama and Congress to work together on climate change, saying the effort would be good for business.

GM, which makes the plug-in Chevy Volt, was the first of the big three car makers to sign on to a new push from the business world for greater action on global warming from Washington, the Climate Declaration.

Aside from GM, the effort was endorsed by household names such as Starbucks, Intel, and eBay, as well as a number of outdoor clothing manufacturers.

Before signing on to the Climate Declaration, GM had been pressing the Obama administration to adopt a national energy policy, promoting natural gas and renewables.

GM has also been working for energy-savings on its manufacturing line,. The company said it now operated two of the world's biggest solar power arrays.

Callendar couldn't foresee just how much fossil fuels we would be burning over the next 75 years and what kind of negative effects we could produce with this gigantic chemical experiment with our planet's atmosphere by pumping billions of tons of carbon into it.

Carbob bubble? Money wasted?

"Two-thirds of a trillion" dollars were spent last year alone in fossil-fuels exploration when only a quarter of the known reserves can be burned in any conceivable future.

Plus nature's destruction and exploration accidents.

'Today's St. Louis Post-Dispatch has a very good editorial on oil reserves and climate change. With new recovery techniques, "recoverable" reserves are up. Back when the planet seemed infinite that woulda, shoulda coulda been very good news. But on the planet we actually have--finite and getting hotter--it's definitely bad news. We are going to have to learn to say "no" to fossil fuels. And humans, particularly Americans, have never been very good at cutting themselves off from doing something they really, really want to do.' in the last 150 years or so, as man started burning fossil fuels in earnest, atmospheric CO2 has risen by a third. If it hits 450 parts per million, the earth’s mean average temperature could rise by 2 degrees Celsius. At that point, climate catastrophe will be well under way. The polar ice caps will be all but gone, so will many coastal areas. Deserts will spread.

“I wish it weren’t true, but it looks like the world is going to blow through the 400-ppm level without losing a beat,” geochemist Ralph Keeling of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography said in a statement Monday.“At this pace we’ll hit 450-ppm within a few decades.” Check this out: http://www.stltoday.com/news/opinion/columns/...

Brian G, "I'm rooting on reaching 500ppm by 2050! CO2 is vital for life. " Brian _G must be Michelle Bachmann in drag. "(6) BACHMANN CLAIMED THAT CARBON DIOXIDE IS ‘HARMLESS’: In 2008, a Stanford scientist revealed “direct links” between increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and “increases in human mortality”— globally, he found that as many as “20,000 air-pollution-related deaths per year per degree Celsius may be due to this greenhouse gas.” The next year, Bachmann, who is not a scientist, said that “carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn’t even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas.”Check this out: http://thinkprogress.org/politics/2011/06/16/...
