Yesterday the experts said the cold wet season was cancelled here. New discovery the day was cold and wet. The experts were amazed that we experienced lightning. Guess the climate change is back.

Yes, we know, unusual or unseasonable is automatically the result of "Climate Change" or "Global Warming".

I am reminded of Arthur Miller's "Crucible" when the accusations and demands for confessions reached a crescendo and John Proctor was hanged.

You guys are fixing to hang the world economy.

You the one you either could not remember or didn't want everyone to know because it was that lame.

Of course if you want an answer then you need to tell everyone what the question was.

If the world economy declines, so do fossil fuel emissions. That's the dirty little secret of climate change mitigation.

Well continue to prove that your are Less than a Box of Rocks or answer the question. Remember with your higher education and your teaching job this question should be easy. Actually its like a 5th grade question. Now get after it.

The dirty secret of climate change is there is no such thing as clean coal. The world economy declines and recovers with or with out fossil fuel emissions.

Synfuel derived from coal is very clean because it's manufactured from a chemical process rather than refined from naturally dirty feed stock. If the energy source to run the process were atomic the industry and its product would be very green.

I would venture to say that the environmental footprint of synfuels varies all over the place. While having the advantage of reducing pollutants such as Hg, SOx, NOx, etc., it does little to reduce the addition of CO2 to the atmosphere.

So they use environmental safe chemicals? They use synfuel for?? Oh maybe burning. So the fuel exhaust from burning synfuel is???. And the atomic by product is???. Do tell all your clean green answers. The end results you may find is there is not such thing as clean coal.

As you know, I think that the addition of CO&#8322; to the atmosphere is a non-problem, mostly a benefit and certainly not a catastrophic disaster as you guys constantly claim.

You have obviously made up your mind that there isn't. Your point about atomic energy is the only one that has any merit.

So you can't or refuse to answer the above questions. So my point on all have merit unless you can prove disprove the questions. Please use your own work the cut and paste thing only provides useless argument.

I never mentioned that climate change or global warming was actually making or not making change by humans. So what do you expect me to answer? Oh don't be shy when answering my question be direct.If you elect to take a position with the topic at hand do show us your work. The cut and paste thing dosen't prove your point.

"steenking piddling diddling middling mudling mudslinger brian_g stumble butt dumpster diver" thinks the Earth atmosphere would be good with CO2 at 1000+ppm. In some places CO2 would be 3000-6000ppm...... not good for people (children) breathing it.

"steenking piddling diddling middling mudling mudslinger brian_g stumble butt dumpster diver" has no mathematics or science background & has made errors of 73 million TIMES, 1 million TIMES, 1000 TIMES TWICE, & 3000 TIMES.

For thousands of years, life has adapted to a steady level of CO2. Now AGW is radically changing GHG CO2 & other GHGs.

Don't breathe what "steenking piddling diddling middling mudling mudslinger brian_g stumble butt dumpster diver" thinks is safe.

I don't just breathe CO2, I drink carbonated beverages.

That's right, I like to live on the edge.
