What a phony. Your buddy litesong posts mounds of gibberish but you don't lambast him for that.

I know, I know... he's a useful idiot for the 'cause', so he's tolerated.

Do run along and be a jackass elsewhere.

"Divesting from fossil fuel companies carries very low risk to the portfolio and hedges against the foreseeable decline in the fossil fuel industry known as the “Carbon Bubble”. If we are to limit temperature rise to 2oC, which is the internationally accepted limit on temperature rise, 60 to 80% of fossil fuel reserves cannot be extracted and burned for profit2. These are then are considered stranded assets, which severely inflates the value of the companies’ stock. Hence, long-term investments in the fossil fuel industry will likely prove to be bad investments.
Efforts to transition away from fossil fuels have been hindered by the industry’s money, political influence, and tacit acceptance from institutions like ours. This is where University of Delaware can play a role by publicly ending its investments in fossil fuels. A mass divestment movement can both harm these corporations’ bottom lines, and delegitimize them in the court of public opinion, aiding the transition to a sustainable future. University of Delaware can truly “Dare to be First” by being the first university among the top 100 universities with the largest endowment to divest from fossil fuels. In doing so, it would provide a strong impetus to the growing movement of divestment, which currently comprises of 6 colleges and universities, 18 cities, and numerous other institutions."

The Federal Reserve is pumping trillions of dollars into the markets; when they stop, all stock prices will fall. Stocks with high earnings and good dividends will fare better than others. That's why I invest in fossil fuel and its byproducts.

Don't fear, that CO2 was in the air before and we're just putting it back into the light so it can do some good. They would raise the price of energy and fuel; we would have cheap oil, coal and gas so more may enjoy its warmth and share the information it helps communicate.

I'm tracking divestment schemes and looking for buy opportunities.

PRATT!

The carbon that was geologically sequestered over many millions of years is being oxidized and dumped onto tjw atmosphere in decades. When all that was in the air before, the sun was in an earlier stage and emitting much less energy (30% less prior to the beginning of biology). Later on, when only a fraction of it was in the air and the sun was only a few % weaker, there were tropical forests on Antarctica and much of the tropics were uninhabitable deserts - or under several hundred feet of seawater.

But you should already know that. Why?

Because it's a PRATT!

Carbon dioxide is vital for life. Emitting CO2 adds to the biosphere. We're returning fossil carbon to the air because that's where it belongs.

Average global temperatures in the Early Carboniferous Period were hot- approximately 20° C (68° F). However, cooling during the Middle Carboniferous reduced average global temperatures to about 12° C (54° F). As shown on the chart below, this is comparable to the average global temperature on Earth today!
Similarly, atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the Early Carboniferous Period were approximately 1500 ppm (parts per million), but by the Middle Carboniferous had declined to about 350 ppm -- comparable to average CO2 concentrations today!

lyin'brian just likes to repeat the same outrageous claims over and over just to get a response. Probably turns him on.

I feel much safer now:

Obama Signs Global Warming Executive Order to "Prepare Nation" for Effects of Climate Change.

President Barack Obama signed an executive order Friday to “prepare the nation” for the dire consequences of global warming by establishing a new task force aimed in part at steering local communities toward making “smarter” investments to prepare for climate change-caused catastrophes.

“The impacts of climate change—including an increase in prolonged periods of excessively high temperatures, more heavy downpours, an increase in wildfires, more severe droughts, permafrost thawing, ocean acidification, and sea-level rise—are already affecting communities, natural resources, ecosystems, economies, and public health across the Nation,” the executive order states.
