What choice do we have? You keep acting stupid. The experiment idea has crashed and burned. There's nothing else to do but attack the stupid idiot that keeps dragging it back up.
The Scientific Method defines good science, not consensus.

We ask how you would do the experiment, and you reply that's not your job. You're just a layman, you say. Well, why don't you lay off the experiment bullshit since you're just a layman?
You don't have to be a scientist to promote the scientific method.

So a single subject experimental paradigm for for climate change would be to stop pumping greenhouse gases into the air since we have already seen, and experimented with, what adding them will do.
We've never experimented with adding CO2 to the air with our fossil fuel use; there was no control. Now, if you wanted to burn a known large amount of fossil fuel to measure the increase in atmospheric CO2, go for it.

Such an experiment hasn't been published in any peer reviewed journal.

The most annoying thing is a denier slaughtering science.

It was done before. Why do the ignorant dare what they don't know? Why don't they try open heart surgery while they are still delusional in science matters?

Why don't they publish a peer reviewed, reproducible experiment that demonstrates the effectiveness of climate change mitigation or the effects of adding a known and measured greenhouse gas into the atmosphere? If they did, I'd change my mind and stop being skeptical of man made catastrophic global warming and climate change mitigation. What would it take for you to change your mind?

Well, OK, I'm off to the Climate Leaders conference in Chicago tomorrow, doing something else with my life that really matters. With all the other activists, from farmers to PhD's, from about 50 countries and schools like Harvard and UCLA.

The conference runs July 30-August 1. I'll try to keep you apprised or catch up when it's over.

And if I can get close enough to old Al, I'm going to feel under his hair for those horns you deniers say he has.

You can't possibly change your mind.

You'd have to have one first.

Even the ChiComms realize they have a problem...

(Reuters)- China plans to invest 1.7 trillion yuan ($277 billion) to combat air pollution over the next five years, state media said on Thursday, underscoring the new government's concerns about addressing a key source of social discontent.

The money is to be spent primarily in regions that have heavy air pollution and high levels of PM 2.5, the state-run China Daily newspaper quoted Wang Jinnan, vice-president of the Chinese Academy for Environmental Planning as saying. Wang helped draft the plan.

Tiny floating particles, measuring 2.5 micrometers or less in diameter, are especially hazardous because they can settle in the lungs and cause respiratory problems and other illnesses.

The new plan specifically targets northern China, particularly Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei province, where air pollution is especially serious, the newspaper said.

The government plans to reduce air emissions by 25 percent by 2017 compared with 2012 levels in those areas, according to the report.
