From outside the field where the game is played, you can't see the score board, can't see what's happenin' at the plate, can't play in the game, or ever had science & mathematics to perform or understand science.

Oh yeah, and we also remembered the woman that the creator of "erf day", Ira Einhorn, killed, cut up and stashed in a trunk for a couple of years. Liberals are so kind, loving and warm.....
Oh, quit lying, troll, you know you did NONE of those things. I mean, I know you hate the environment and people who remind you what a scumbag you are, but blathering nonsense only makes you look foolish.

Being a moron is bad enough, you don't need to BRAG about it, IOW...:)

Very good, Merko!! Now let's see how smart you really are, okay? Are you aware that it's a myth that CO2 is the most common greenhouse gas because greenhouse gases form only about 3% of the atmosphere by volume, and CO2 constitutes merely about .037% of the atmosphere?

Um, somehow by saying that YOU'RE clueless, you think I'm "admitting" that I am? Wow...unusually dense and foolish even for you, trolldownthemiddle...

Always amusing when an ignorant trolling putz like you pretends to be "smart" and qualified to "test" others about their knowledge - when he doesn't care about the debate in the FIRST place!

Water vapor is the most common contributor to the greenhouse effect. C02, however, is longer-lasting and more important molecule-for-molecule, not to mention that humans are producing ever-increasing amounts of it.

Your percentages look meaningful, but aren't. They lack context, for one thing.

well if you're so smart....and by your own admission water vapor is the largest contributor....what will your solutions be? AND how much and how soon will the situation be mitigated? I'm sure you're smart enough to inform the forum on this!!!

The water in a sinking vessel is the dominant factor in it's sinking. But the hole that lets the water in is a MUCH better target to keep the boat afloat.

Or are you too stupid to understand the difference here?
