"Increased short-term masking of greenhouse gas warming by fossil fuel particulate and nitrogen pollution is a "doubling down" of the Faustian bargain, an increase in the stakes. The more we allow the Faustian debt to build, the more unmanageable the eventual consequences will be. Yet globally there are plans to build more than 1000 coal-fired power plants and plans to develop some of the dirtiest oil sources on the planet. These plans should be vigorously resisted. We are already in a deep hole -- it is time to stop digging.".
Can't be the scientific science fiction people want the coal plants shut down.

The public gets the global warming as the fossil fuels are consumed more and more. People know first hand the canaries have to be noticed.

Just yesterday, a long-posting topix denier woke up to the fact that fossil fuels and their combustion products are toxic, radioactive, and carcinogenic. It's not just the global warming and the climate change but all the other damage of the consequences from using fossil fuels.

No science fiction comes even close to the reality of the fossil fuels.

The principal implication of our present analysis relates to the Faustian bargain. Increased short-term masking of greenhouse gas warming by fossil fuel particulate and nitrogen pollution is a "doubling down" of the Faustian bargain, an increase in the stakes. The more we allow the Faustian debt to build, the more unmanageable the eventual consequences will be. Yet globally there are plans to build more than 1000 coal-fired power plants24 and plans to develop some of the dirtiest oil sources on the planet25. These plans should be vigorously resisted. We are already in a deep hole -- it is time to stop digging.

So prove it with your peer reviewed published work.

Since toxic topix AGW deniers have no science or mathematics degrees & no science or mathematics backgrounds even in their poorly earned hi skule DEE-plooomaas, re-pubic-lick-uns make deals with Satan & then blame AGW advocates for dealing with the Devil.

toxic topix AGW deniers think they can do such, since they don't know the power of science to show their lies.
