    If that was fact then use the term AGW.... Oh yeah that is too difficult. First it was "global cooling" then "global warming" yet that didn't pan out so it was "climate change" (kinda like the old parlor trick "heads I win and tails you lose") and now people are supposed to make assumptions because progressives can't be specific - yet you demand specific answers?

    Give me a ****ing break...

    I know the progressive game and when someone asks me if I believe in "climate change" I say I don't believe in anthropogenic climate change unless someone blows off an entire arsenal of nuclear weapons.

    Dare they ask why - I will give them a half hour lecture as to why.

    RE: Solar roadways
    In spit of what I think is a poor presentation style, it is a good idea,
    and represents the thinking outside the box that will be necessary,
    for us to move to the next level.
    This combined with man made hydrocarbon fuels, could bridge the gap
    to whatever comes after heat engines.

    The best part of all of this is that one of these days a mega volcano will erupt, or a comet or meteor will strike the earth unleashing devastating pollution into our atmosphere that would make the industrial revolution look like someone struck a match.

    Of course the scientific community knows that will eventually happen within the next 100 or so years yet acts concerned about alleged "AGW."

    Hell, a rupture of a seismic fault line large enough could spew more gas into the atmosphere since humans have since the industrial revolution.

    But of course these "save the planet" folks who buy the government bull**** never thought about those forthcoming disasters now did they?

    No, WAS. The acceleration has been towards cooling, for approaching 20 years.

    Meanwhile co2 is increasing at the same rate.

    No, that's simply not true. And yes, you will likely get a lecture about how badly you're reading it.

    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.

    Did you ever notice the people who you 'destroy' over the issue generally dont have much to say after you start talking and then end the conversation politely and roll their eyes as they try to quickly get away?

    Get clue. You arent really 'destroying' them.

    Did you ever notice them talking and then stop abruptly when you walk into the room? Bet that happens a lot.
    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.

    Solar power on a large scale is at best an oxymoron - at worst a waste of money. Solar power is too inefficient and you couldn't move a train if you tried with solar power.

    Wind and turbines on the other hand makes way more sense.

    Obviously free energy is impossible but wind turbines is the key to the future of energy - that and different forms of friction.

    I won't go into your blabbering and incoherent ranting about this, and I'll post the graph I meant to post.

    Oh, and this one is less of a lesson in shoddy science?

    You won't go into it because you can't... You know what a hypothesis is, you know the ipcc hypothesis, you know the data does not support the hypothesis.

    Decadal average temperatures don't prove anything about how that warning relates to co2, which is the key to the entire argument.

    That's a dumb argument. That's like saying "Hell why should I wear a seatbelt I'm gonna die of cancer anyways." Mankind always will find away to fight for the future. Just like X-Files.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Nice pivot.

    I was dismantling your BS point about how the temperature 'paused'. I guess you attribute the increase to your outbursts of hot air over the years.
