I've never pretended to be a professor. It's a nickname, dumbass.
And your hypocrisy was what was funny...you posted this:
"do you ever tire of making moronic posts? if you want anyone to take your "scholarly advice"....you best start posting in a scholarly manner. if you're able."
You've never made anything BUT moronic posts...you have no scholarly ANYTHING to offer...we know you're UNABLE to post in such a manner.
In short, you were describing yourself, bumpkin. That was what I was laughing at. YOU.:)
do you always get into an emotional tizzy when you're unable to substantiate your claims? Jest tell me what your plan is for changing the climate...and how much it will change it? If you're a smart as you think you are....you should be able to do that.
I'm betting you can't though !:-D

well....that would be your opinion, and it's all your own. Just don't confuse it as factual like you seem to do with all your other opinions, son.

May I cut in? I'm sure The Professor can answer, but in the meantime let me offer a few suggestions for lowering our carbon footprint to slow climate change for you to ignore:

1- Stop subsidizing fossil fuels.
2- Buy recycled products.
3- Stop deforestation.
4- Use more energy-efficient cars.
5- Use CFL lightbulbs.
6- Support clean energy.

If you require more ideas for you to dismiss in fighting against the ultimate ravages of climate change, just ask.

btw....are you not clever enough to use the conventional reply and use quotations that most educated people here utilize.
It's really quite simple....you need a tutorial?

I make a good living exploiting green energy....tax credits, RIN's. They pay my company much more than dollar to dollar fossil fuel credits.
I have no problem with people using energy efficient cars, but good luck mandating it in this real world.
How much deforestation is going on in our country on a net/net basis?
Light bulbs......can I buy you a half caff latte? lol
ONE LAST QUESTION, son. what quantitative benefit will your little list make on altering climate change?
That's all I've been asking all along!:-)

Yes, I like, "steenking" because toxic topix AGW deniers are kings at steenk. Maybe I should use, "steenkking". But then toxic topix AGW deniers might think I see the real connection they have with the kkk(ALWAYS SMALL LETTERS). Yeah, maybe I SHOULD use, "steenkkking". That would be very accurate, indeed!

Several toxic topix AGW deniers have actually defended the kkk(ALWAYS SMALL LETTERS), showing how upright, self-righteous, & godly(in an ungodly manner) that the kkk(ALWAYS SMALL LETTERS) is.

yeah....maybe you should do that! by categorizing people as racists just because they question the validity of man made global warming and its proposed solutions......people on the periphery will easily realize that you're just a political hack with no sound FACTS. We can all conserve energy by not needlessly wasting time reading your inane tripe.
But.....for some reason you think you're brighter than other's and you have facts on your side. Sadly, you can never seem to present a good case for either.:-/

Believe it or not, my ideas were not just for you to comply with, Mr. Rite. With regard to "the real world", many countries are far ahead of us in their understanding of climate change, and are doing something about it.

You seem surprised to learn that fighting climate change requires doing the "little things", like changing the types of lightbulbs we use. This can even be done by right wing mouthbreathers, with nary a sip of latte. We welcome all drinkers of Coors, Red Bull, and moonshine, that is, those who want to save the asses of themselves and their (unfortunate) children.

To answer your last question, dad, it's going to require our more enightened people to teach the less enlightened ones that all our keisters are on the line, and saving our world might be a good idea. Our younger people are more apt to realize what's going on. Our future is literally in their hands.
