Just quit whining about AGW, because you don't really want to solve the problem.
mmm-k?
Nitey-nite.
No, it's not ok to misjudge people or technology. I'm not your enemy.

Falling in love?

How can you with 90,000,000 tons of man-made CO2 emitted into our atmosphere every day?

Have I confused you now? You sound like you want to learn about what's happening in detail. Here's a great reference to dig to your heart's content:

Audience? That's a concern for performers & sail-trimmers like you.

It's not ok to misjudge technology, no - which is what makes your ignorant scare-mongering over the nuclear technology solution repugnant.

You are not my enemy, no. Your technological ignorance is.

If I have misjudged you, please explain how, and I shall be happy to apologize. But your flip response throwing up Fukishima as if it were a relevant or intelligent and informed response to the potential that advanced nuclear generation offers to attack AGW dramatically and effectively within a meaningful timeframe in comparison to the pie-in-the-sky social engineering pipe-dreams that clog the discussion deserved to be treated as nothing more than the ignorant troll it was.

You're either part of the problem or part of the solution.

Choose.

Oh - and avoid giving advice; it just highlights your cluelessness.

I never tire telling the true traits of "fetid feces face flip flopper fiend". It lied saying it had a PHD. It isn't a doctor, while it diagnoses wrongly. It has no science & mathematics degrees. It has no upper class science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra or pre-calc for its poorly earned hi skule DEE-plooomaa(if it has that).

However, "fetid feces face flip flopper fiend" IS a slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig AND alleged & proud threatener supporter & is such. "fetid feces face flip flopper fiend" hates dirtling because dirtling was a worse slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig AND alleged & proud threatener, and "fetid feces face flip flopper fiend" was jealous.

and to tax everyone into poverty to stop the fictitious mmcc/cc and transferring billions to the UN & armed forces (who are a major polluter) for more war, and continuing the billions in the transfer of wealth from all the regular hard working joes to the mega rich will surely help and change the weather.(rofl) Right?

We can’t love a planet with fear any longer!

Remaining climate blame believers need to sign up to be willing to be charged with uttering CO2 death threats to our children when free and open courts prove that climate change is not a real crisis, just a tragic exaggeration fueled by irresponsible belief.

None of you selfish fear mongers would still be shooting your mouths off like this condemning our children to your greenhouse gas ovens if this were a real civilized society.

A revenue-neutral carbon tax removes ZERO money from the economy & adds ZERO money to the government. It's arrantly absurd to claim it would tax us into poverty, or take money from rich countries & give it to poor countries.

A properly designed tax would take money from heavy carbon emitters & give it to low carbon emitters. It would hurt fossil fuel industries but help non-carbon-emitting energy sources to exactly the same extent.

It would be a difficult adjustment, but ultimately would benefit people. Removing ALL subsidies from the fossil fuel industries, & instituting a proper carbon tax, would mean no more need for subsidies to renewable energy industries, no need to try to select a successful Solyndra (which is not easy for government to do). The market, finally free & reflective of reality, could decide.

Of course telling the richest industry in the world that it should prepare to go virtually out of existence is extremely problematic at best. There has been, & will be, a tremendous amount of money spent to try to prevent the transition away from fossil fuels. So far they've been remarkably successful in confusing the public about AGW/CC & the necessity of reducing the burning of fossil fuels.

Everything I said was absolutely correct. You, of course, wouldn't understand that. Try learning some science instead of political equine excrement from denier sources.

Why don't you try listening to James Hansen? After all, he was ABSOLUTELY CORRECT in 1981 about what would happen subsequently. We've seen exactly what he predicted then - years before others had caught on, a decade before the IPCC was even formed.

Gee, PHD, did you bother to listen to Dr Hansen's talk? Did you bother to read (or just look at) the Science article from 1981?

Surprise! Measured temperatures have been close to what Hansen et all predicted more than 30 years ago. In fact, measured temps have been a bit HIGHER than they predicted back then, or at least on the high end of their predicted range.

My links work FINE, BTW. You may have to have Flash player (not sure) for YouTube & Adobe Reader to see the pdf article. They're available for free & are not harmful.
