This Web site is an experiment in a new way to tell a historical story. Think of the site as an object like a sculpture or a building. You walk around, looking from this angle and that. In your head you are putting together a rounded representation, even if you don't take the time to inspect every cranny. That is the way we usually learn about anything complex.

Yeah, with a hi skule DEE-plooomaa, without upper class science or mathematics,'fetid feces face flip flopper fiend' gets its education from a rock. If 'fetid feces face flip flopper fiend' tries for consensus,'fetid feces face flip flopper fiend' will talk to 'boxes of rocks'.

Your statement that your"PHD" is no concern of mine would seem to give poor footing(base) for your posts...yet an apt description...
.........
No one wonders

Speaking for your "class"mates at Dumbstear U. again?..one has only to abstract the content of your posts to gain a insight as to what to expect in terms of science contribution....

It never ceases to amaze that anyone would wish to paint themselves in such a fashion...
I suppose that could be attributed to different backgrounds

I've cited lab experiments that show 'climate' sensitivity to CO2 is far lower than the IPCC's most benign estimates. That's why the IPCC hypes there climate scenarios with feedback.

Nobody wants a dirtier environment but CO2 isn't dirty, smelly or visible. Let's work on real environmental problems, not fake ones.

No, the IPCC estimates have feedback, that's why they are higher.

Feedbacks are an observable fact.

YouÂ’re a person of many words. Are you trying to impress your---self? Maybe your sentence structure and spelling need to be checked? Well actually you the spacedoutblues and the "pinheadlitesout" are free entertainment. Please continue to post your scientific science fiction someday they well make another movie and you three could be the cast of a thousand.

Chinese solar panel factory declares bankruptcy. Reasons include overproduction and loss of sales due to reaction by other countries because of dumping. One of the reasons that domestic solar companies have had such a difficult time.

Can you cite any experimental evidence for feedback from man made changes in the atmosphere?
