    Yes, that "near universally' is the troubling part which, in laymen's terms,means nobody knows with any certainty. It appears to be a conflict between religion and science.

    Believe whatever you want but please don't ask the taxpayers to pay for your unsubstantiated (and rather goofy) beliefs.

    Climate change has always affected the world, as well as the immediate area in which it occurs. This does not come as a shock or revelation to anyone. The Farmer's Almanac can tel you as much.

    I don't need to look at it again. That chart is a list of forcings for air temperature, the energy trapped by black carbon that melts snow does not contribute to the air temperature.

    Here's a clue, guy: when one gallon of gas (which weighs less than ten pounds) is burned, it generates about 20 pounds of CO2 into the atmosphere. There's about a half billion cars operating in the world today, and if each one uses about a ten-gallon tank of gas per week (and I think I'm being conservative on that one), do the math - that's about 100 billion pounds of CO2 added to our atmosphere.

    Per week.

    From cars alone, not counting what comes from factories, power plants, ships, trains, planes, and the methane from cattle. Add to that all the deforestation that's taken place over the past couple centuries - which detracts from our planet's ability to absorb the CO2...

    ...and frankly, guy, I would say the onus is on AGW deniers to prove that what we're adding to the atmosphere does not cause global warming. 97% of climate scientists are satisfied that it's proven, every single national science foundation on the planet are satisfied that it's proven, 90% of all other scientists are satisfied that it's proven...and every single alternate excuse offered by the AGW deniers has been handily disproved and debunked.

    But I guess I'm just wasting my time, since it's SO much more important to the Big Oil-funded Right to protect their Big Oil sugar daddy than it is to listen to the overwhelming majority of the scientific community - most of which gets NO additional funding because of their research into AGW.

    Yes, Big Oil bought me off. I get a free car wash after every ten visits.

    Well, the science is on my side. That you choose put your "faith" above science is your concern.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    You have any pictures to prove that? Or maybe an article on 17th century men's winter wear?
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Science is not a democracy where you can vote for the truth.
